A life plan? Uh, I have a day plan. Does that count? I have a few goals and priorities. How about that? Is that good enough?  Reading through John Maxwell’s book, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth, I am immediately confronted with this question. “Life is in session. Are you present?”  John walks us through […]

Digging Beneath The Surface {That’s Where It’s At!}

It’s funny, isn’t it? You know, how when you think you understand something, God takes you to a whole different level. I’m not talking about ascending into the heavens, higher and higher, kind of level. Instead, it’s bending lower and lower, understanding that our knowledge and wisdom is so unsophisticated and basic next to the […]

{Choose Joy} Dwell On The Promises of God (& Free Printable)

I have tried to search for words to explain what is going on inside of me right now. But I can’t find anything more substantial than, “I am so excited!”. It’s difficult to put into the words the way the Spirit of God moves and satisfies. It’s difficult to explain the way one can actually […]

Never Get Tired Of Growing and Learning {2013 Book List}

This post contains affiliate links. Okay, I have a confession to make. I love reading. I love books. And I guess you can say, in the past I loved buying books. Last year, in May, I tackled what became an entire project- by sorting, organizing, and donating books. This was great. There’s something about de-cluttering […]

{Sloppy, Half-hearted Service: God’s Not Interested In it!}

Friends if you are not yet excited about what God is doing,  I encourage you to get yourself into your prayer closet for some alone time. It’s time to refocus. God created us to walk in the good works He predestined for us (Ephesians 2:10). We are to live our lives Fully Committed to Him […]

{Peace On Earth, Goodwill To Men}

Where Is The Good? Pain has a way of messing with your vision obscuring everything around you. Hearts writhing in pain, bleeding, almost unto death. Knots of despair stuck in your throat threatening to choke you, not allowing you to speak, words unable to flow. It becomes an opaque filter, impenetrable to light. Things become […]
