I am afraid! Yes, yes. God has not given us a spirit of fear etc, etc. Despite that ever present reminder, fear still walks right through the door and sits on my heart. What am I afraid of? I think the fear of inadequacy covers it all. This week was a bit of a tough week. … Continue reading Oh Fear! You are not welcome here.
Amazing blog. Awesome read.
I have a confession: one that I’m really not proud of.
But tonight at church, and really for the last couple weeks, I honestly have just felt…nothing.
It’s like I’ve been spiritually numb.
But tonight was different. I was actually getting angry.
I was sitting in the pew, and just inexplicably fuming, being critical of every little thing: the priest seemed arrogant. The pace was too slow. I was literally shooting daggers with my eyes at the elderly woman leading the songs. (A capella, I might add.) Who is this monster I’ve allowed in my thoughts and heart?!

How Lord? --By faith That's the answer to a constant question on my mind. God has a calling for each one of us but I know for me, I tend to question how? This leaves so much room for doubt and disbelief. "God there's no way I will write a book" "there's no way I … Continue reading How Lord?
It's been over a year since I last posted. I am proud to say I have become a mother. Now she is almost a year old and God is tugging at my heart to start writing again. It is so easy to get caught up in being "mom" that you forget the other parts that … Continue reading Missing. In. Action
And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only. Matthew 17:8 ESV. When waters surround us and our burdens fill every empty space to drown us, all we need to do is look up and see the sun shining through the clear blue water and follow the light to our salvation. … Continue reading See Jesus
What would I do without the voice forever in the background of my chaos reminding me of realistic outcomes and the joys of God's promises? If you're asking what voice? Isn't that just me talking to myself? It's okay, it takes time to learn to recognize that that's not a fly buzzing in your ear, … Continue reading Jiminy Cricket!!
I cried myself to sleep last night and that's okay. Our society has plagued our minds to think that only the weak cry, only the weak feel anxious and overwhelmed, only the weak feel sadness. This is not true at all. Why do we try to regulate our feelings to the point where there is no … Continue reading I Cried.
When we read Matthew 6:33, we always forget to read the preceding verse. (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have NEED of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:32-33 … Continue reading The Things Added
Daniel's Fast day 8 I had a sugar binge. I couldn't take it anymore. I was so hungry and I thought to myself "It's okay, I'll just start again tomorrow". Let me be completely transparent, I ate cookies, candy, donuts, etc. Full out orgy of glucose. That sounds a lot like how we live our … Continue reading Compromise
I have been without a computer for a while but praise God I have it back and can post again 🙂 1 John 4:4 (KJV) says "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." Many times we forget … Continue reading He That is Within You
