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!

Still Waiting

Do you hate to wait, for anything? Exactly…we live in an instant everything society. We have microwaves, high speed internet (because god forbid it’s slow) the fast lane on the highway, instant pictures from our phone, no more having to get them developed, and the ever amazing DVR…we don’t even have to sit through commercials anymore!

The God Who Sees

As I was reading through the account of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar in Genesis I saw something that I found interesting. When Sarah fails to conceive the son that God had promised her, she takes matters into own hands and gives Abraham her maid, Hagar. I can’t imagine how Hagar must have felt to be used for the sake of gaining an heir for her mistress.

Let It Be

As I was seeking God for a Blog topic and wondering what He would have me write…nothing was coming to my spirit. After a few days I thought…he’s silent for a reason. I will not force something he isn’t giving me. When we are in a season of healing or waiting, it’s important to slow down and just be.

Who Is Jesus?

Is Jesus merely handy to have when we need him or is he someone we cant’ live without? Is he useful when we need something or is he all that we need? Is he convenient when we have a prayer list that needs answers and forgotten about when we are busy and happy? Am I the only one who wonders?

God Only Knows

Songs always seem to speak to me. It seems the right one always pops up on the radio when I need it. I’ve been hearing the new song by King and Country “God Only Knows” lately and it spoke volumes so I’m passing my thoughts along to you…as usual…!

It Takes Practice

In my quiet time today I came across this scripture…”By patience possess your souls.” The Passion translation says it like this, “And by standing firm with patient endurance you will find your souls deliverance.” This scripture is saying so much…lets dig into it.

The Better Way

Proverbs 16:32 NIV Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.” The BBE translation says “He who is slow to be angry is better than a man of war, and he who has control over his spirit than he who takes a town.”

When Your Life Implodes

Life.is.hard. Lets just be honest. I’m not here to sweet talk anyone. I’m all about being painfully honest with myself and others. This season finds me frustrated, sometimes angry, having more questions than answers and just plain tired. Tired of believing, standing and contending for all of the promises God has spoken, anyone relate?

What Are You Carrying?

Has someone ever handed you something and immediately you knew you could not carry it? It was simply too heavy for you. Our muscles are designed to carry weight, but depending on how we develop those muscles through exercise will depend on how much weight they can support.

Making Room

With the New Year just starting, we usually decide to add new things into our lives; gym memberships, diets, new eating programs, new plan to read the Bible trough this year etc. But…to have the new thing or to put more into our lives we need to make room for it.  You can only put so much into a container and when it’s full nothing else will fit. It’s simple mathematics.

Grace Please

You know that moment…that moment when the realization you’ve done something really stupid dawns on you. Then the familiar voices start screaming in your head confirming your really stupid decision and the fact you are a loser and always do the wrong thing…yea that moment.

2019

Resolutions while a great idea…usually don’t see their fulfillment. But this year I am making some “decisions” and some “declarations”. I am determined to be better, stronger, more present and will fight to be and to do all that I am called to be and do. What is God asking of you this year?
