Lean On Me Cuz It’s Lonely Up In Here

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

Nope!

“In all things give thanks.” There is a reason the scripture instructs us to live like this. Do you know that negativity can’t live (lodge) in a thankful heart? I had a conversation the other day with a young woman who said something interesting. She said that for some people negativity is all they know.… Continue reading Nope!

Quit Yer Yappin’ And Pray!

Fear divides us. And I know that there are so many things that cause fear right now. I’m not down-playing the dire situation our world is in. But honestly, how does it help us to bash people, to write ugly comments about our leaders, to become hateful about certain people? Y’all, our strongest weapon is… Continue reading Quit Yer Yappin’ And Pray!

Grow In The Dark!

Your our first glance at this picture probably made your brain go, “Waaaat?” Well, yes, it is quite the strange photo. But it does speak a thousand words…if you are like me and see stories in everything.

I believe that God wants to use all of our experiences as a way to connect with--and maybe bring hope to--another person's heart. I'm really glad that He does… Continue reading God Is The Great “Recycler”

Doubt is Unbelief

Stop doubting and believe! John 20:27 Jesus' disciples had just been through the worst time of their lives. Jesus, their  teacher and friend, had been killed and placed in a tomb. Three days later when some of the disciples told Thomas they had seen Jesus as the risen Lord, Thomas told them he had to… Continue reading Doubt is Unbelief
