By The Grace of God I Can Become a Better Me

By the grace of God I didn’t act on my thoughts or feelings that day.  My husband texted me that he was at my office and asked if I could take an early lunch. I couldn’t.  I began to think of how he could go get us lunch, bring it back and by then I’d

We Are At War

We shouldn’t be surprised when warfare happens. Why do we think pushing against the grain should be easy? I never thought I would say this, but doing the right thing won’t always make you feel good at the time. Sometimes it’s difficult and it feels opposite to what your mind is telling you, even though

What You Can Control

We can easily feel out of control, or try to control what we really have no control over. So much of the time we step out of bounds either one way or the other instead of actually utilizing, to the best of our ability, the things we can control.

Fear Wears A Mask Too – Part Two

Irrational fears don’t play fair. Like when we don’t apply for a new job because we’ve worked on one computer platform for so long that we have convinced ourselves we’ll be quite computer illiterate on the other one. This may sound stupid y’all, but fears often do in hindsight. Little irrational fears combined with larger,

What Have You Stopped Believing For?

If I don’t write things down, I will often forget. Whether it’s what I need at Walmart, the things I need to accomplish at work, or the bill that needs to be paid by tomorrow. It’s easy, right? We have so much happening in our lives that keeping track of it all can be challenging.

We Will Walk Through!

It’s so quiet and yet noisy all at the same time. Traffic is charged up on the internet roadways, while diminishing on our physical highways for a time. Some of us get vocal trying to find our way. Others of us pull back, and observe, while looking for firm footing to stand on, as we

We All Go There . . . So Continue

We all go there. One thing happens. Then something else happens.  The underlying drama in our lives begins to surface. Our prayers feel like they are hitting up against a brick wall. Then… That thing your husband did not do the “right way,” turns your mood south. Your kids fussing with one another adds to the

We Can Do This!

Our family lived in Colorado for three years at the base of the Rocky Mountains. Within a few months of moving there, our first major snow storm came in early October, the 5th of the month to be exact. The snow storms continued coming on and off through May of the following year. This was

Even When I don’t Know God Is Good, He Is!

I honestly cannot remember one time where the next right thing that God was calling me to, was something I wanted to do initially. Maybe you all are better natured than I. Maybe you surrender faster to His will. Maybe you are not as strong willed, or opinionated, or you don’t get as caught up

Trust Feels Hard Some Days

I forget. I question. I don’t understand. I try to figure out God’s plan for me, or I tell Him how I want Him to do it, or I just set my expectations on something without asking Him first (this does not end well for me), or I get all caught up in my own

God Will Replenish and Fill You Up!

Ok y’all, I’m the biggest fan of Christmas; putting up the Christmas tree, all the lights, finding special presents for loved ones, enjoying the family moments together, baking and celebrating the birth of Christ. However, this Christmas season, wasn’t what I expected. Yes, there were absolutely beautiful moments I will always treasure. I am forever
