Courage {You Look Very Brave Today…}

They Lacked Confidence, They Didn’t Trust God, and They Didn’t Believe It Existed

“Mom, I just don’t get it!” My 6-year-old old was dumbfounded. She just didn’t understand. It didn’t make sense to her. “Mom, why would God’s people leave Egypt to go to the Promised Land and then want to go back? Why would they go forward and then want to go backwards?” I looked at her […]

Get Yourself A Vision {A God Vision}

Vision. It’s the process we want to skip over because it takes work to stop, sit, listen, and think. It’s the place in the process we wish to omit because some things ‘seem’ easier when left unattended. But the echoes of God’s word imprint themselves on the tablets of my heart. In a Sunday service, […]

{Unwrap The Gift, Over and Over Again…}

It’s just a cardboard box. A small one my husband used to bring some groceries home this evening. Yet there she is holding the brown cardboard between her fingers. She has a plan. I see it in her eyes. It’s the same glistening that occurs every single time she plans something so brilliant she can’t […]

{It’s A New Morning…Drenched In God’s Grace and Goodness!}

It’s Monday. A new day comes forth. With the rising of the sun, night disappears and we are left with another opportunity at this thing we call life. To some, the rat race continues; for others, yet another dreaded morning. For me, another opportunity to live the life God intended me to live. My head […]

{Victory, 5 Times Over!!!}

The enemy surrounds me. They’ve risen up against me. Five of them and one of me. The road ahead looks bleak, dark, and scary. How did we come so far to be left defeated? How did we come so far to be put to shame? 8 The Lord said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid of […]

{When The Mountains Are Falling Into The Sea…I’m Not Afraid}

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way, and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.       Selah Psalms 46:1-3 This is the verse God gave me months ago. I didn’t understand why […]

{I Am Declaring… How About You?}

Today was one of those mornings… You know, those mornings when you wake up with the fighter in you all worked up. It was one of those mornings… the type where you say, “enough is enough”. The type of morning when you take your feet and plant then securely on the word upon your life […]

{Between The Enemy and The Sea…}

I’m stuck here. Stuck between the pages of my Bible. Stuck between a couple of chapters, unable to move forward. I have a schedule, a Reading Plan to adhere to if I’m going to make it through the Bible in a year… I’ve even tried catching up on my Bible on CD. Yet I’m stuck. […]
