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. But oh, how it wrecked me…. 😭and I’m talking a blubbering, snotty, all-choked up kind of mess… and it… Read More 7.11.2020 – Discovering Him for Eternity
I love how the Passion Translation opens up a whole new and fresh way to look at the scriptures. I’d love to get a hard copy of this translation—and I have a feeling I would mark that thing up like crazy with all kinds of hearts and smilie faces and “bursts of light” from all… Read More 7.7.2020 – A Recipe for a Life of Adventure
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”
God has this way of somehow making certain things that we must endure —hard things, painful things, horrible things, “impossible things”….. bearable. The word “bearable” means, “able to be endured” He has given that to us. 💖✨ Have you ever looked back upon your life, perhaps at some of the hardest things you’ve ever had… Read More 6.25.2020 – Enduring the Hard Things
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. I was reminded (yet again) of exactly what I need to do in times like these —to just keep “singing” of His love and faithfulness, regardless of… Read More 6.20.2020 – “I will Sing”
We have an enemy who wants us to retreat, to give up, to shut down, to coward back… …But we have a God who leads us to victory, and when we walk with Him, He has promised to give us what we need —the endurance in order to get there. 🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻♂️ “For everything that was… Read More 6.19.2020 – Trusting Him in the Process
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. Even when you feel the smallest and the weakest and the most insignificant you have ever felt —courage will… Read More 6.17.2020 – My way, or His Way?
“God, when is this ‘thing’ going to get any easier?” …This was the raw and honestly imperfect question on my heart this morning… And I knew it wasn’t really the “proper” sort of question to ask, and I knew it wasn’t really the right question to ask, but He already knew my heart. He already… Read More 6.16.2020 – “Father, I come to You, exactly where I’m at…”
I am finally beginning to understand… …that the lessons we learn from within the struggles are worth far more than having no struggle to deal with at all. I’m realizing that a struggle is an opportunity. ✨ “Strength comes from struggle. When you learn to see your struggles as opportunities to become stronger, better, wiser,… Read More 6.9.2020 – What is an “Overcomer”?
I’m convinced that rejection is one of the most painful things a person can endure. There are many different forms of rejection, there are many different levels of it. Some kinds can be honestly unintentional and yet we still feel it, and other kinds of rejection can be about as mean-spirited as you can get.… Read More 6.4.2020 – The Sting of Rejection
I can’t get over how quickly this world can shift and change…almost overnight. How quickly these “waves” can come….how quickly these “waves” can cause destruction. I am unsure of exactly how to express what is on my heart right now, so perhaps I’ll do it this way… We have a Savior who is near the… Read More 6.2.2020 – Facing the Wounds
This morning I heard this… “It takes bravery to be a tender person (who doesn’t attempt to hide it or push it away.)“ So I thought about it… I suppose that’s true… …because to the world, “tenderness” can seem like a sign of “weakness”… …and to be okay with “appearing weak” or “too soft”…and to… Read More 5.18.2020 – Tenderness takes Courage
Yesterday morning on my Facebook page I shared a quote from a “Facebook Memory” from that date, in the year 2016. “Our God loves triumphing over what looks impossible; therefore, he calls an ambush without any means of escape “an opportunity”!” ― Lisa Bevere, Girls with Swords: Why Women Need to Fight Spiritual Battles (Take note… Read More 5.15.2020 – “Girls with Swords”
There’s something about this time we’re living in…. something about this time of “reset”…. It seems like God is surfacing and stripping away false things… false identities. Hindrances… It’s so easy to take a look at our lives, and find something we enjoy doing, maybe even something we’re good at doing, perhaps something that others… Read More 5.11.2020 – “Who am I… really?”
I had a moment of discouragement with myself yesterday…. and the enemy tried to take it and run with it. But what have I learned to do? Write about it. Backfire it in the enemy’s face. Lately I’ve struggled with the feeling of being anxious of “falling behind or going backwards”…..not wanting to “fall” backwards… Read More 5.7.2020 – “Am I going backwards?”
