5.25.2020 – Vulnerability, Exposed

There are some situations that happen in life… …that seem to make us feel more “exposed” than others. Vulnerability is not an easy thing. It’s uncomfortable. In fact, at times it can be one of the most terrifying things… But there’s something relieving, something freeing… about our hearts being “exposed” and getting it over with,… Read More 5.25.2020 – Vulnerability, Exposed

5.21.2020 – “God, what would You like to write upon my heart?”

I’ve been hearing this beautiful phrase a lot, especially from our Pastor: “Written upon our hearts…” Heard it again at prayer last night, and this morning again… Suddenly as I heard it again this morning I had a thought, “What kinds of things could God write upon our hearts?” Wow… Yes, He writes His “laws”… Read More 5.21.2020 – “God, what would You like to write upon my heart?”

5.20.2020 – “What have you learned?”

This morning I have found myself reflecting on the last couple of months… As things begin to open back up, all the things that were put on hold, things that were temporarily shut down—as they begin to open back up and return to “life”… I just hear this question in my heart, and it’s this:… Read More 5.20.2020 – “What have you learned?”

5.17.2020 – For the one who feels ‘forgotten’…

For the one who feels “forgotten” or “unseen” in this time… I feel compelled to write something this morning… It’s a lie. It’s a dangerous lie that will take you down into a dark pit of bitterness and offense, if you allow it to take you there. I’ve seen it destroy people…a slow and miserable,… Read More 5.17.2020 – For the one who feels ‘forgotten’…

5.16.2020 – Every “Page” Matters

I’ve only a few pages left in my current leather journal. It’s felt like this one has lasted forever. Don’t get me wrong, I love this journal. It’s one of those kinds with the really nice paper, doesn’t have the lines on the pages, and I can write as small, or as big as I… Read More 5.16.2020 – Every “Page” Matters
