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”

6.17.2020 – My way, or His Way?

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?

6.9.2020 – What is an “Overcomer”?

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.

6.4.2020 – The Sting of Rejection

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.

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”

5.11.2020 – “Who am I… really?”

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.

Have you ever noticed thoughts that just somehow find a way to sneak into your head?

4.30.2020 – Heart Transformation

I remember a time that my heart was filled with such bitterness, I couldn’t experience and perceive God clearly.

This morning I’ve been thinking back to January, when I was really beginning to feel the “worst of the worst” and my body really felt as though it was beginning to shut down —no matter how hard I would push, no matter how hard I would try to keep going, my body just wasn’t agreeing… Read More 4.26.2020 – “Vitamin D”
