4.5.2020 – Sometimes things just happen…. in an interesting way…

Sometimes things just happen…. in an interesting way. And that’s about all we can say about the situation, in that moment. This morning I clicked on an “untitled draft” here on my blog site, and I came across this old reading that I had pasted into this “untitled draft” from an old book that we… Read More 4.5.2020 – Sometimes things just happen…. in an interesting way…

3.20.2020 – SOS

This song came on yesterday… and something about it felt like the “cry of many out there in the world” right now. Perhaps it’s the cry of many who are going through this challenging and troubling time of uncertainty. But then the Lord gave me Psalm 46 ☀️(I encourage you to read it in it’s… Read More 3.20.2020 – SOS

3.9.2020 – True Colors

Who am I when no one is looking? When no one else but the Lord can see… How will I react in the moment of that sting of disappointment? Or that moment when fear swoops in? Will I choose to grumble over the inconvenience? Will self-centeredness rise to the surface? Will selfishness kick in? “What’s… Read More 3.9.2020 – True Colors

2.28.2020 – Refreshment to my Soul

Writing in my journal feels like taking a “deep breath” and then slowly letting it back out. 🍃 Writing to my Heavenly Father, and writing with Him, is such a wonderful time of refreshment to my soul. 🌱☀️ Never does it feel forced or pressured, but more like something I crave.

2.11.2020 – That Place in the Middle

You know how I wrote that post yesterday called, “You Don’t Have to Hide“? Well guess what…. after I wrote that post, all I wanted to do later in the day was hide. Isn’t that interesting? This morning and last night has felt like a lot of resistance. I guess that’s to be expected, right?… Read More 2.11.2020 – That Place in the Middle

2.10.2020 – You Don’t Have to Hide

I remember listening to this song years ago… Thinking, “Wow, someone gets me. That’s what I do. I hide.” Something about this song, something in the way that I connected with these lyrics made me realize that I was hiding in my life, in so many ways. Little by little the Lord has taken/is taking… Read More 2.10.2020 – You Don’t Have to Hide

1.10.2020 – Lavished Upon

When I first began spending time with the Lord each morning, I felt that for me, that time needed to begin around 5 AM. It’s the time of the day that is still very dark outside, and it’s like I feel the need to be with Him as the dark night turns into the breakthrough… Read More 1.10.2020 – Lavished Upon

1.7.2020 – Intimidation

Were you ever bullied? In school? In your workplace? “Intimidated” into silence or cooperation or agreement? Maybe you didn’t even realize it. What is a “bully”? “a person who habitually seeks to harm or intimidate those whom they perceive as vulnerable.” It angers me (more than it probably should) when I see a person being… Read More 1.7.2020 – Intimidation

1.4.2020 – Learning to Live in Freedom

This morning, I knew right from the start what the Lord wanted me to write about….. or at least, I wondered if it could be the thing, because it was the “thing” that was really on my heart this morning from the very start. Yet, I thought, “God, isn’t there maybe something else You would… Read More 1.4.2020 – Learning to Live in Freedom

11.22.19 – The Lie of Insecurity

Over the course of my life, I’ve often struggled with insecurity. Insecurity about who I am. Insecurity about my weaknesses, my inabilities. Insecurity about my worth. Insecurity is defined as,“uncertainty or anxiety about oneself; lack of confidence.” “the state of being open to danger or threat; lack of protection.” Over the last few years my… Read More 11.22.19 – The Lie of Insecurity

11.17.19 – Oh no, it’s that thing again…

I am going to be very honest with you… Lately, I have found myself being “tested” in a certain area of my life. It’s a thing that consumed me as a young girl. It’s a thing that turned into self-frustration, which turned into self-hatred, which tempted me to go into hiding. It really is a… Read More 11.17.19 – Oh no, it’s that thing again…

11.4.19 – Shame.

It’s 3:19 on a Wednesday afternoon, I’m mopping the floors and suddenly the Lord starts speaking to me about “shame”… I know I need to immediately stop what I’m doing and go write it down, and yet I’m like, “Lord, can I just get all this water off the floor before I have to run… Read More 11.4.19 – Shame.
