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
What an interesting time we’ve suddenly found ourselves living in. It’s so easy to get wrapped up, pulled in, and overwhelmed by being surrounded by… fear, the unknown, and in the midst of uncertainty. But God, I want to know what’s on YOUR heart this morning? I want my mind to rest upon You. God,… Read More 3.16.2020 – I set my mind on You.
It seems that “fear” has launched an all-out attack on the whole world right now. I’ve been watching and noticing how fear seems to be growing, and spreading —growing in intensity within the hearts of people all over the world. It’s spreading far beyond the spread of any virus. But I’ve also noticed another side… Read More 3.13.2020 – The Opportunity to Live Psalm 91
I love this song. Something about it makes me feel not so alone in all the thoughts, all the concerns, all the “what ifs,” and all the fears, that we so often face in this journey we take with the Lord. He’s always taking us to a “higher place” in our perspective. He’s always bringing… Read More 3.8.2020 – Deeper and Higher
There is a strange “quietness” within me this morning. Usually there’s a quietness on the outside, …while there’s an over-abundance of disorganized words, thoughts, memories, and ideas swirling so “loudly” within me… Sometimes I can’t seem to organize all of it well enough to “say” with my mouth, but somehow when I write, I’m able… Read More 3.3.2020 – “Say to those who are fearful-hearted…”
Change. Have you ever gone through the kind of “change” that feels kind of like you’re being swept up in a whirlwind, knowing you really don’t have much control over where you land? It feels like there’s really nothing you can do but just “hang on” for the ride and see where it takes me…… Read More 3.2.2020 – Winds of Change
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. This morning as I… Read More 2.28.2020 – Refreshment to my Soul
I’ve always considered myself to be more of a “behind the scenes” kind of girl. Yes, I do like to be understood, but I prefer to dwell in a place that’s not in the center of attention, not in the center of the conversation, not the main focus, and definitely not in the spotlight. “Behind… Read More 2.21.2020 – Nudging me out of the Shadows
My words never seem to come out of my mouth the way I’d like them to. If you know me in person, you’d probably know this, but if you only know me on here, you might assume that I’d always have lots of words to say, because I always seem to have many words to… Read More 2.20.2020 – Will I use the voice I’ve been given?
This morning as I sat before the Lord, I heard a random phrase… “Try, try, try again!” Sometimes in the “trying” and “trying” and “trying” again… I find myself growing tired and weary. Frustrated. When I feel the resistance, the struggle, the pain of my glaring weaknesses time after time after time… “God, sometimes it… Read More 2.19.2020 – “When’s it gonna get easier??”
There’s something about the way He can use the pain we experience in our lives… No, He doesn’t cause it… But He can do something with the pain, in this strange and beautiful way, that makes it all… Somehow worth it. 🌈 Somehow so beautiful, in spite of the pain. There’s this thing He can… Read More 2.14.2020 – Rising Above the Pain
God has this way of reminding me, and showing me… …that I’m never alone in my struggles. That I’m never as “alone” as I may feel. Yes, He’s always with us, He’s always aware, this is always the truth… …but He has this way of showing us in the natural too –through other people. Whether… Read More 2.13.2020 – Together
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
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
It suddenly struck me last night… –that I’ve been more focused on my “hinderances,” than on what I “have.” What happens when we focus on the lack more than on being grateful for what we do have? What happens when we focus on the hindrance, the struggle, the frustration, the inability… that thing we stumble… Read More 2.7.2020 – Enough
How many times in the bible stories do we see these initial responses… “…but God, I can’t! I’m incapable, don’t You know this?” “…oh God, why would You ever have me in mind for that? Have You not seen my track record?” “…God, why would You choose me for this task? Don’t You know me?”… Read More 2.1.2020 – The weak, the incapable, the unlikely…
