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

You Are MORE!

  It doesn't matter what is being said about you. It doesn't matter what others think of you. What matters is what you think of yourself! And if you believe lies about yourself, then you will act on those lies instead of the truth. Any words that make you seem "less than" the amazing person… Continue reading You Are MORE!

Songs That Speak To Me

The God Who Stays

My shame can't separate, my guilt can't separate, my past can't separate, I'm Yours forever. My sin can't separate, my scars can't separate, my failures can't separate, I'm Yours forever. You're the God who stays. You're the One who runs in my direction when the whole world walks away. You're the God who stands with… Continue reading The God Who Stays

Numb Choices Aren’t Smart

Focus! It seems we are always hearing how important focus is to reaching our goals and bringing our desires to us. However, sometimes our focus is totally off. We work hard, do what we think we should, spin our wheels, and run faster on the hamster wheel, only to remain stagnant. Why do you suppose… Continue reading Numb Choices Aren’t Smart

How? Speaking The Name of Jesus!

If you had known me for the last several decades, you would know that I've walked though some pretty deep valleys. There has been an awful lot of loss in my life. Both my parents and both of my siblings died of cancer. So my whole immediate family is gone. I lost my beautiful home.… Continue reading How? Speaking The Name of Jesus!

Are You Believing Lies?

So many of us hold as truth the myths, or lies, that govern our lives, our choices, and our behaviors! I know I did (at time I still do, I'm sure). BUT...Who taught us these lies/myths we believe are true? The old adage "If you tell a lie long enough it becomes truth to you"… Continue reading Are You Believing Lies?

Overcomer

Having children with special needs is such a challenge! But one thing I've learned....it keeps us TOTALLY dependent on God. No way can I be "in control" because in the blink of an eye, our life could be in shambles.There are days my prayer has been, "Oh God, oh God, oh God" because I just… Continue reading Overcomer

Live Life With Eyes and Heart Wide Open!

We guard our hearts against deep, emotional interactions in order to stay safe. Because for us to embrace living with our eyes wide open and with our hearts made… Continue reading Live Life With Eyes and Heart Wide Open!
