Be Still

Posted on behalf of Lisa Moody: My life has been total chaos lately. That seems to be a recurring theme for me. In the last couple of months, my best friend’s teenage daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy after her first seizure occurred while in the airport in Orlando. That same friend’s husband has been passing […]

Live the Truth Intentionally…Even in the Smallest of Ways

Hi friends! Happy June! I’ve had this small thing on my mind lately.  It’s small in the sense that I could have easily dismissed it and perhaps missed a golden opportunity to lift up the name of Jesus to a complete and total stranger. As I was reading in my NEW “She Reads Truth” Bible, […]

Cast Your Cares Upon Him

Did y’all know? HE will never let us be shaken!!! Psalm 55:22 Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. That’s just what the WORD says! I’ve started a new job after 12 years of being planted in the comforts of what felt more […]

A Good Good Father on Good Friday!

It’s Good Friday and today marks the day our Savior willingly chose to give Himself up for us! All of us, or one of us, Jesus died on the cross so we could have the opportunity for redemption. A love that holds that much immeasurable depth truly boggles my mind because in my broken, human […]

Brave Faith

~Trusting God with who He says YOU are~ I’ve had this whole Holy initiative (we’ll call it) hit me like a ton of bricks! Sort of out of nowhere and sort of NOT. You understand how some things you know to be true and then there are some things that you KNOW to be true! […]

We Never Know What The Wait Could Mean

Going to the doctor is never fun and is usually met with some degree of waiting. Most of us are horrible at waiting. We get antsy and easily frustrated in the wait. We carry around smart phones in our pockets to fill every void second with some type of stimulation that allows us to feel […]

25 Days of Family Advent

Christmastime is such a wonderful time of year! I absolutely love the warmth of cozy rooms dimly lit so Christmas tree lights flicker with magical delight. A fire roaring in the fireplace with a good book or a great movie are always inviting too.   But as believers we ready ourselves for so much more! We […]

Not on Bread Alone

My plate was piled high with a heap of rice and beans adorned with a plump chicken leg on top. This was a meal I actually like just fine though not my usual. I’m a pretty healthy eater, but on this day I wasn’t sure I’d be able to hold the entire amount of food […]

Hemmed In

Have you ever felt hemmed in by your circumstances?  I have! The Israelites knew all too well what it felt like to be hemmed in on all sides! God led them to encamp by the sea, directly opposite Baal Zephon.  (Exodus 14:2) Interestingly, God’s plan the entire time was to make Pharaoh think the Israelites […]
