I'm curious. As you strive to wait well, do you commit everything you do to God? Do you fully give Him your dreams and plans? Do you hand them over? Or are you like me and want to keep a hand, a finger on it; have a small bit of control? Interestingly, in the KJV… Continue reading Waiting Well–Commit Thy Works Unto the Lord
Waiting Well–It’s Kind of Like Making Bread
I was getting ready to make bread today and started to laugh. I know, a strange thing to do when getting ready to bake. I laughed because I realized making bread is a metaphor for my current season. Have you heard this statement? “Yes, God loves us just the way we are. But He… Continue reading Waiting Well–It’s Kind of Like Making Bread
Ephesians 3:20–Scars That Shine
I apologize this didn't get out on Saturday as planned. I was blessed to be present with family and friends. To encourage others in need and to be blessed in return. And now back to regular programming 🙂 Have you heard of the Japanese art, Kintsukuroi? This ancient art developed because a beloved piece of… Continue reading Ephesians 3:20–Scars That Shine
But I Don’t Feel Forgiven…Part 4: Forgiving, Forgetting, and Doubt
Hello dear friend, This post was one of the most difficult to write. Rewrite. And write again. I wrestled with it for weeks! Maybe you can tell me why. Blessings. “Excuse me; Ma’am, is this yours?” I ignored the voice behind me and started walking. There’s NO WAY she could be talking to me. Ma’am?!?… Continue reading But I Don’t Feel Forgiven…Part 4: Forgiving, Forgetting, and Doubt
The Vibrant Relevance of God’s Word nailed me last week! And I didn’t even feel the blow until later when it started to sting. When I opened my Bible for my quiet time, I didn’t get further than this: I am the Lord your God, who rescued you from the land of Egypt, the place… Continue reading January’s Lesson
Attitude, Part 2–Nuts, Guts, Heart, and Mind
Attitude is a choice. Like wrestling, it takes nuts, guts, heart, and mind. And in the face of adversity-God gives us what we need for victory. (Thank you Tim Hartung for your contributions.)
I Resolve To…Part 1
New Year’s Resolutions. Did you make any? I didn’t. I’m not a fan of making resolutions. Especially at New Years. Not to sound cliché, but they rarely ever last. In the past, most of my New Year’s Resolutions started with little to no conviction and fell as soon as The Ball dropped. Others had the… Continue reading I Resolve To…Part 1
Some Days Don’t Go As Planned…
Ever have days when things don't go as planned. When life happens? Me too. That's usually when Jesus get my attention and teaches me something new.
Psalm 100, Part 5: COME!
I don’t know about you, but after worshiping with other Believers, I feel encouraged! No matter what season I’m in, what challenges I’m facing, what I’m wrestling with, or how broken I am—I always feel refreshed, refocused, and more hopeful. Come. 'Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!' Psalms 34:8
Psalm 100, Part 4: Serving Others
What if I told you serving others in the name of Jesus Christ is a form of worship AND can be instrumental in your healing? Would you believe me?
