A few Sundays ago, I had the opportunity to share my testimony with the High School girls in my church. What's so spectacular about my testimony? Well, I was a sinner and Christ saved me. It doesn't get any better than that! Seriously, that's the best testimony and we all can share that if we… Continue reading My Own Fight for Freedom
That Other Story for Another Day …
"Comparison is the thief of joy." - Jennifer Harvey Yesterday marked 11 weeks that I have been completely off my anti-anxiety/depression medication after 7 years of being on it. I'll be honest with you ... I should have never been on it this long if I should have ever been on it in the first… Continue reading That Other Story for Another Day …
A funny thing happens every May, I find myself feeling a bit nostalgic and remembering my senior year of High School. Not in an Uncle Rico/Napoleon Dynamite way but more so as a Bethel moment in my life. In Genesis 35 we see where God told Jacob to go “to Bethel and dwell there. Make… Continue reading May Memories
I have so much to say but I simply feel right now is not the time to say it. I want to be obedient to the Lord's direction in my life. Until He leads me or releases me to write more I am going to link other blog posts that are catching my eye or… Continue reading Silence
Victorious Suffering ... sounds like an oxymoron right? A friend and I were discussing this very thing earlier today. We came to the conclusion that people often think suffering has to defeat us but, as believers, we have the One who overcame the world by fighting on our behalf so we can have victory in… Continue reading Victorious Suffering
Practice Ephesians 4:2
Over the last week, I have written and deleted several posts. I had so much on my heart yet I couldn't find the right words with which to say them. I have been and am frustrated over the political climate in our country. I am over the moon in love with my niece, nephew, and… Continue reading Practice Ephesians 4:2
Truth Is … We Can Handle It
Yesterday, my path crossed on Facebook with another 32-year-old woman who was struggling with the fact that she was single. I sincerely told her that it is better to be holy, whole and alone than dating the wrong person. But like most she struggles seeing friends getting married, coming home to an empty house and not… Continue reading Truth Is … We Can Handle It
No Hired Hands
A few weeks ago, I was sorting through some things to throw away when I came across a conversation that I had printed out between myself and a guy I had met on Christian Mingle. This was the last guy I talked to before I quit the site in the early Fall. As I read… Continue reading No Hired Hands
Happy New Year!
Well, it's 2017! Can you believe it?! 2016 seemed to fly by. It's amazing how when you start measuring your years by the little ones in your life how quickly time passes! The general consensus on Facebook seems to be that 2016 was a very hard year for many people. It was a pretty average… Continue reading Happy New Year!
Words from Isaiah
Well, I wrote a different post yesterday but the Lord hasn't released me to share it which happens from time to time. So, for now, I am "sitting" on that post and we'll see how the Lord directs me to use it. Until then, I spent some time in Isaiah this morning and several verses leapt off… Continue reading Words from Isaiah
