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
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
There are many, many concerns on my mind these days. They kind of swirl around in the background as I go through my day.

Ever Feel Like You don’t Belong?
Most of my life I have felt left out, looked over, and that I didn’t really fit in or belong. Some of this was because I moved so many times during my school years. I was always trying to fit into a new crowd of people who already had their cliques. And I was… Continue reading Ever Feel Like You don’t Belong?
Wrapped In His Heart
Guide me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You (and only You) I wait (expectantly) all the day long. Psalm 25:5 Amplified Bible The Passion Bible translation has this footnote that knocked my socks off: “The Hebrew word most commonly translated as “wait”, qavah, also means… Continue reading Wrapped In His Heart
God Sings? Really?
Warning: long post ahead. Hopefully your attention span is longer than the average person's (eight whole seconds) because this is really good stuff. Grab a cup of something and take a minute. I.Love.Sparkles! Anything is better with sparkles--clothes, nails, shoes, jewelry—shoot, I’d wear sparkles on my face if I could do it without looking… Continue reading God Sings? Really?
Stay Close to the Shepherd
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. And I give to them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” John 10:27-28 I love this so much! If we are a follower of Jesus and have a relationship with him,… Continue reading Stay Close to the Shepherd
