7.14.2020 – Cause & Effect

I love it when the Lord prompts me to take a journey back through my journals… Because I know that He’s wanting to remind me of something, or show me something brand new that I had never seen or noticed before. This morning, He did a little of both. 💖✨☀️ How He works so beautifully… Read More 7.14.2020 – Cause & Effect

Have you heard of “The Chosen” series? More than likely, you have… I was a little late in getting to it. I think everyone had already seen it by the time I started digging into it.

7.10.2020 – I am not Defeated by my Weakness…

I’ve always felt like the “weakling” of the group. The “least” in many ways… I more than realize my lack of “ability” compared to all the others. “God why did You make me to be so weak and needy? Why did You make me to be so sensitive and soft? How can You use any… Read More 7.10.2020 – I am not Defeated by my Weakness…

What if… You had to go through that hard thing… Because of the testimony you would gain… Because of the powerful story of salvation and deliverance that now belongs to you… And what if… The testimony of what God did in your life… Is now, what someone else so desperately needed to hear?

7.6.2020 – Childlike Hope

Sometimes I feel like I have this kind of “childlike hope” that is somewhat hidden within me… And I want to hang onto it with everything I’ve got, in spite of all the reports of things happening around us.

God, I love when You set things right. 💖✨ Relationships… Attitudes… Hearts… Vision… Pathways… Memories… Journeys… Our whole lives… Think of a time when you realized… that something has somehow changed… “I was there, now I am here.

There are going to be times we have to really press in… and we have to say, “be still, my soul“… …so that we can hear God’s heart and His voice above all the rest of the voices and the chatter in the airwaves, all the rest of these “GPS” type, navigational voices that are… Read More 7.2.2020 – “God, wait —where are You?

I feel like I need some kind of “compass” that I keep constantly before me, perhaps right there around my neck so that I am always reminded to look to it—a constant reminder of the truth, a constant reminder of the way, a constant reminder of the direction I am going.

6.28.2020 – “Come Close”

This morning as I was sitting here, I began to reflect on how I used to be so fearful of God, so uneasy around Him, and how I used to attempt to keep Him at “arms length” because I didn’t know that He was such a wonderful Heavenly Father—a wonderful Heavenly Father who delights in… Read More 6.28.2020 – “Come Close”

My husband and I are photographers, and over the last few years, we’ve been so privileged to do a lot of work for a local magazine where we get to visit different towns across the state, and we photograph different makers, and creators, and so many talented business owners across our beautiful state.

God has this way of somehow making certain things that we must endure —hard things, painful things, horrible things, “impossible things”….. bearable.

6.24.2020 – Just when I thought there wasn’t a doorway…

Left and right, I am seeing Jesus “make a way” when there “seemed to be no way”… How He surprises me sometimes with His heavenly solutions… things I wouldn’t have ever considered from my own mind. (You know, He thinks much bigger and broader than we do. 😊☀️) How I can forget that sometimes…. How… Read More 6.24.2020 – Just when I thought there wasn’t a doorway…

I discovered this song at just the perfect time yesterday… This new song by Sandra McCracken so lifted and encouraged me in a moment of frustration and discouragement.

Life isn’t going to be easy when you start choosing to face your fears… You’re not usually going to “feel” courageous, and you probably won’t even “look” courageous… and yet courage will be given to you.
