You Are Not Defeated

You Are Not Defeated!

You are not defeated! Feeling defeat and being defeated are two different things. It’s so easy to feel defeated when the story isn’t over. And let me tell you, if you are breathing, the story isn’t over! There is nothing worse, in my mind than finishing a day of work, or the time you have

We All Need People - Faith Caffeine - Joelle Povolni

We All Need People!

We all need people! Loved ones, friends, piers, even those we disagree with, mentors near and far, and those that we influence. Our family didn’t toast glasses of sparkling cider at midnight like usual this New Year’s Eve. I love traditions like this as they somehow connect us to the past, present and future all

Learning to Love Others Well When It's Hard

Learning To Love Others Well When It’s Hard

Loving people we disagree with isn’t easy, and yet, I feel God convicting my own heart all over again. God calls us to love others and live unoffended, and not give others control over our emotions or how we live out our future. Learning to love others well, when it’s hard, is God’s best for

Real Conversation

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.

Isn’t Love Always The Key

Who couldn’t use more LOVE and less of everything else in their life? I don’t know when this dream started in my heart as a young girl. I had envisioned my grandfather, a minister, praying over my future husband and I on our wedding day, for as long as I could remember. Fast forward to

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,

Fear Wears A Mask Too – Part One

Irrational fears may be silly, or embarrassing, but y’all they are for real.  I know they are no joke because of how many times I find myself angsting over or paralyzed by one. I bet you’ve experienced this in one way or another in your life too. The first and only job I was ever

Is Anything Certain With Having Faith?

Nothing prepares us for lightning strikes stripping the bark off of trees during storms or seasons of life where it’s hard to focus, as our life takes on new shapes and forms we’ve never seen. Maybe we have less time, or too much time. We may find ourselves pivoting from the path we’ve known.  A

Complete Surrender & Trust Lightens The Soul

I sat in my grandfather’s lap and easily convinced him to get hearing aids when no one else could. Not my mom (his middle daughter), or my grandmother. They may have tilled the ground, and prepared the soil of his heart and mind. But, it was his brown haired, brown eyed persuasive granddaughter, who had

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
