I read this and it tugged on my heart and I knew I just needed to share it. It’s a beautifully expressed piece by Mary DeMuth from her book “We Too Me”. We just have to get better at loving and helping hurting people…period.

Renouncing Faith

This is a different Blog than I usually post but my heart is heavy…maybe yours is too. It seems more and more we are seeing prominent Christians renounce their faith. It’s a heartbreaking thing to see, and an even more difficult thing to understand.

Be The Change

Have you ever noticed how easy it is to get caught up in the criticism we hear all around us? From the media, the Left, the Right, the church, the Government, everyone criticizing and complaining about what everyone else is doing or saying or isn’t doing…it is maddening.

Let There Be

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.  The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.   Genesis 1:1-2 (ESV)

Idols

When we hear the word Idol…what comes to mind a brass or stone statue in some foreign country that people worship, or do we consider it something of ancient days gone by. No one really worships idols today do they? Hmmm…or do we?

Keep Going

Do you ever just get tired? Tired of standing, believing, fighting, and wondering if your promise or desire will ever materialize? You’ve stood until you feel like you can’t stand anymore. It would be so easy to just chuck it all. To give up and say screw it I’m done…

Speak The Truth

This could open up a can of worms. With all humility, the can needs to be opened and we need to be stirred out of slumber and complacency. Opening up a can of worms is better than dwelling in a den of vipers.

I Don't Understand

We all dread that middle of the night phone call from the Police, that knock at the door from a Military Chaplain, the screeching of tires you hear from the front porch or the call from the Doctors office with your test results.  These invoke a sense of dread and anxiety unlike anything else we face.

Feeling Full?

Have you ever eaten too much? It’s terrible. That feeling of fullness you get and you don’t even want to see food for a good while…think Thanksgiving dinner! But have you ever been hungry? So hungry all you can think about is getting something to eat, anything!

Elements

We have lived all over the country and each state brought different climates. Some hot and dry some cold and wet…cold was definitely not my favorite. Cold is evil. But no matter what the climate of the area, we had to be prepared for the elements.

Frustrated?

While I was pondering what might be on my heart to Blog on, I was drawing a blank. I believe it was because I’m in a season that I am simple “over” being in, I’m tired, and I’m frustrated. So there you have it. #reallife

Mending Broken

Have you ever broken something? Some things can be mended or repaired easier than others. If you break a vase just right and there are only a couple pieces you could glue it and maybe it would look fine and still be usable. But if you drop a glass on the tiled kitchen floor most likely it would shatter and there is no fixing that mess!

Victory Is Coming

I talk a lot about the wilderness….maybe it’s because I’ve been living in it for a good bit, going around mountains and learning lessons. Maybe you’ve been in a season like me or a dry season…God is a God of timing so whatever you have been going through let this word from Dana Jarvis be an encouragement to you as it was to me. God is for us, he is bringing us out and into an amazing new season of fruitfulness and joy!
