6.25.2020 – Enduring the Hard Things

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

6.24.2020 – Just when I thought there wasn’t a doorway…

Left and right, I am seeing Jesus “make a way” when there “seemed to be no way”… How He surprises me sometimes with His heavenly solutions… things I wouldn’t have ever considered from my own mind. (You know, He thinks much bigger and broader than we do. 😊☀️) How I can forget that sometimes…. How… Read More 6.24.2020 – Just when I thought there wasn’t a doorway…

6.23.2020 – Refreshed Hope

This morning I feel such a refreshed hope, a revived hope about some things going on in my life. It’s so funny how in our minds we can become discouraged, and the more we dwell on that discouragement, the more we lose sight of the truth—the truth that Jesus makes a way when there seems… Read More 6.23.2020 – Refreshed Hope

6.22.2020 – A Way (when there seems to be no way)

Have you ever had to tell your soul… “Be still, my soul…” Sometimes things don’t happen the way we’d expect, and fear and anxiety begin to creep in because we don’t like the looks of the situation… This morning I am remembering that no matter how things may seem, no matter where I am standing… Read More 6.22.2020 – A Way (when there seems to be no way)

6.21.2020 – “What if it was different then?”

I used to have panic attacks when I was alone at night time. Even as an adult, I would have to do things to distract myself so that I could eventually fall asleep… sometimes I did, and sometimes I didn’t. Anything little thing would spook me, thoughts and imaginations would go through my mind that… Read More 6.21.2020 – “What if it was different then?”

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.

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

6.18.2020 – Part of the ‘Reason’ for the Struggle

This has been a “heart-to-heart” kind of morning… I was just sitting here, talking with the Lord about some things on my heart —specifically some “things” that seem to be a hinderance in my life, things that have been brought into the light and realized. Things that don’t align with His way, and His truth,… Read More 6.18.2020 – Part of the ‘Reason’ for the Struggle

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.

“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.

Have you ever heard someone tell a joke, and until they explain it to you, you just can’t seem to get it? You just don’t see it? Maybe it’s just me, but I usually don’t get “manufactured jokes.” My brain isn’t always the quickest.

Many plans had been made for this year… …and yet look at how quickly everything got wiped right off the calendar.

6.12.2020 – Instruction for Living in this Day

I can’t help but notice that today is “6/12…2020“…. and this morning the Lord reminded me of a key passage of His Word to remember and reflect on and SEE this morning.

6.10.2020 – “Voices” that Speak to “Identity”

Identity. I’ve been thinking about it this morning… and I’m really not sure why, but I’m just going with it… When someone, or perhaps even a personality test says, “You’re __(this or that, you’re this way or that way, this is who you are)___.” These “voices” can come from anywhere or anyone, they can come… Read More 6.10.2020 – “Voices” that Speak to “Identity”
