Praise in the Midst

In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though…

To Dream, Again

I’ve never really been one for making New Year’s resolutions. I know me, and the whole “New Year, New You” thing is not going to be enough motivation to help me change anything about myself that my head and heart aren’t ready for…no matter what day of the year it is. Back when I was…

Love Well

Do you love well? I know that oftentimes I fall short when it comes to loving others – and sometimes, myself – well. To love is not only a command, but it is the greatest commandment. (process point: Don’t skim over scripture because you have read it a thousand times. Read it slowly, actually meditating on…

Be Content

Sometimes it’s hard to wait on God. We long to have more or be somewhere else in our journey. But we must remember that God has a plan for our lives and that there is purpose in our waiting. Even as we watch others live out their dreams, we must learn to rejoice with them…and…

Appointed Times and Boundaries

Walking in Tandem

*This is something that I wrote seven years ago. I thought it was completely lost due to my last blog site abruptly shutting down, without warning. Thanks to Facebook Memories, I was able to copy what I shared in 2011…and present it, here. What a precious thing the Lord did, this morning, by bringing this…

I either trust Him…or I don’t.

“I either trust Him…or I don’t.” I have spoken these words, so many times, over the last year. When I was seeking God’s guidance with a chronic health issue and I was feeling led down a not-so-conventional route of healing, I told my husband, “I either trust Him…or I don’t.” When I felt led to…

A Love Letter

The world tells us to seek our worth, our purpose, and our strength from within ourselves. But, what happens when you hit rock bottom, and your soul is utterly broken and laid bare? What if there is nothing left…no inner strength from which to draw power? What if all hope is lost? What if “within”…
