Better Than Jesus?

Did the title grab your attention? Well, what I read the other day in John 7 sure stopped me in my tracks! Let me know if it does you.  Jesus was speaking truth to a crowd of people, a common occurrence during his short lifetime here on earth. He made the (quite audacious) comment that… Continue reading Better Than Jesus?

Hello Sunshine?

Cloudy. Doesn't matter if the sun is shining. Everything is cloudy. Your life. Your outlook. Your future. It doesn't feel like God is present in your life. You can't see Him or feel Him, and you don't even feel as if you know Him. But let me tell you something that I have learned a… Continue reading Hello Sunshine?

Lean On Me Cuz It’s Lonely Up In Here

I published this post a year ago! I was scanning through some of my older posts, and decided to post this again. Because last week I had the most awful case of loneliness I've had in a long time. It was good to reread this as a reminder. Maybe some of you are experiencing loneliness… Continue reading Lean On Me Cuz It’s Lonely Up In Here

Tell Your Story!

    Tell your story! Seriously, once you share the hard stuff, several things happen:* it's not as devastating because it's no longer hidden* you actually "hear" it as told to someone else and often make more sense of it* your story helps someone* you take away the paralyzing power of what happened to you,… Continue reading Tell Your Story!

Onion Layers

 So I saw this meme on the internet, and thought I'd comment about it. And then God begins to peel the layers off and heal in between each so that your heart can once again love and receive love.  It's a real process, for sure. It takes time--for me, several decades. It's not a pleasant… Continue reading Onion Layers

Can We Trust God?

How do you know that someone is worthy of your trust? Most likely it's because they have proven themselves to you: they are dependable, they have kept your secret, they are loyal and supportive of you. It takes time, usually, to establish trust in someone. And a kind of "testing".  God knows that it isn't… Continue reading Can We Trust God?

Your Mission Should You Choose To Accept It

  It’s my firm belief that our society could use a lot more attention. Not the “hey, look at me” kind of attention, but the kind that notices others. Attention to others: kindness, caring, listening, looking, touching, smiling, and sharing. Of course, in order for this to happen we’d need to lift our faces from… Continue reading Your Mission Should You Choose To Accept It

Inspiration, Quotes

Anxiety Quote

I like how The Passion Bible translates this... "Whenever my busy thoughts were out of control, the soothing comfort of your presence calmed me down and overwhelmed me with delight." I'd much rather be overwhelmed with God's presence filling me with delight than anxious thoughts. It's so amazing that He invites us to give all… Continue reading Anxiety Quote

Focus On The Light

  From the book Indestructible by Blake Healy, these sentences really grabbed my attention: "The enemy is fighting to get you to see things his way because a simple act can release a massive amount of God's goodness, leaving a mark that can last for generations."   Satan does not want us to realize the… Continue reading Focus On The Light
