Ladies, We are not Jerusalem

God is within her, she will not fail Psalm 46:2 God designed our bodies, minds, and souls to work together. This can be both good and bad. When part of us is weak, the other parts have difficulty too. That’s bad. My Twitter friend, Drew Dyck, writes about this in his book Your Future Self Will Thank You,to help us sinners, procrastinators, and quitters … Read More Ladies, We are not Jerusalem

Suffering, A Pathway to Holiness

Suffering, A Pathway to Holiness Upon the mountain we seek, Divine peace and comfortable rest. But, in the valley we must dwell, Where flood and storm keep. Nothing will save us from the test. Through swirling clouds and slanted rain, We must walk. Appearing in the fright of lightning, He came. Our Savior walking by our side. “Suffer with me.” He gently said. “The … Read More Suffering, A Pathway to Holiness

Self-care September… Yes, please.

Self-care September… Yes, please. For most of my life I have tried to live as if I had no needs. I am strong, independent, and I can do it all myself. To have a need that we can’t fulfill ourselves opens us for someone to harm us or reject us. We must trust someone. These are scary things for some of us. So, we … Read More Self-care September… Yes, please.

Conquering Your Hill

Monday’s thoughts… I run. For the first mile of every run, I hate it. I don’t want to go, but some where between mile 2 and 3 my body releases endorphins. It’s like I have to run long enough to convince my body, “Yes, we are really doing this.  I’m not stopping, so help me out!” Then, I feel like I can conquer anything. … Read More Conquering Your Hill

Black Eyes And Faith

Colossians was a pivotal book in my growth as a new believer. The following is a snippet of my testimony. Maybe one day I will be brave enough to share all of my messy life. My life demonstrates what Paul writes in 1 Timothy 1:15-16 “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—and I am the worst of them. But I received mercy … Read More Black Eyes And Faith

Meditation: The Person

God draws us to himself through many different circumstances. Some of us come seeking healing. Some of us come needing the burden of shame and guilt lifted. Many come desiring fellowship and community. No matter why we come to faith, all of us come to God through Jesus Christ. At some point in our growth, we must move from the infant stage of a … Read More Meditation: The Person

Meditations: The tenderness of God

In a male dominated world, we often lean on the man-ish characteristics of God. He is powerful and mighty. His strong arm is able to save. We call him Father. In honor of Mother’s Day let us be encouraged by God’s softness. Let us celebrate that God is compassionate and tender with us. We learn so much about God’s character through the names that … Read More Meditations: The tenderness of God

Be Light

“Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Ephesians 5:14 Something changed in her, an innocence lost. As she looked out, the world seemed to be losing color, so she hung her head. The ground seemed to be shaking. She looked around. No one else seemed to notice. To her terror, she realized, she alone felt the tremors of … Read More Be Light

Meditation: Holiness

This week 1 Corinthians rocked my world! Often, we study single verses out of context, and they begin to reflect what is inside our hearts. When, we take the time to read through the whole letter, God uses his word to display himself into our hearts and supernatural healing begins. See what I did there? Reflection is  natural to humans. We were designed to … Read More Meditation: Holiness

Not Loved, Not my People

Chosen! “Not You” these two words would slash and dice my self-image over and over as a child as an adult as a wife as a mother as a friend.  Come to think about it, there isn’t a situation that I can think of that these two words weren’t said to me. Once, I was invited to a birthday party so that a girl, … Read More Not Loved, Not my People

Banishing My Inner Negative Voice

John 10:10-11 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” The struggles in this life stress our ability to think rationally and clearly. We compound this stress with the cloud of sin, and … Read More Banishing My Inner Negative Voice

Meditation: Know

We can be sure of few things in this life. We know that we will have struggles. The righteous and the unrighteous face many of the same storms. We also know the One that “even the winds and waves obey (Luke 8:22-25)”. “Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea (Ps. 46:2).” … Read More Meditation: Know
