Overwhelmed

“‘Cause Your love is overwhelming/Your love is overwhelming…I’m livin’ in awe/’Cause You don’t need me at all/But You couldn’t love me more…I’m livin’ in awe/And every day I fall/But You never let me go…” ~ Awe by Hollyn Are you ever overwhelmed by the sheer majesty of our Heavenly Father? Sometimes I find myself thinking, Lord, You […]

You Want Me To Do What?

This week I was studying in Exodus.  It has been an amazing journey through this book.  I can only imagine what it was like for the Israelites.  Just to be that involved in the work of God. In Exodus 31, God is giving instructions to the Israelites on building the temple. “See, I have called […]

Running the Race

This Saturday is our local 5K.  I’m not a very athletic person. I’m one of those people that if you see me running, then you better run too because something is after me!  Last year was my first time participating in the race, and my goal was simple: don’t die and don’t finish last.  That’s […]

God Created Community

As women, we often feel alone.  We grow weary, frazzled, and frustrated, thinking that no one will understand or care to help carry our burdens.  All too often we believe those lies brought on by self-doubt.  Yet, God showed his love for us by creating community.   As a woman, I have found hope and […]

Put Your Sandwich Down!

My precocious granddaughter, Campbell, is almost 4 years old.  She has recently begun to pray more specific prayers, sweetly naming all the things she’s thankful for at that moment.  Recently she wanted to say the blessing at lunch.  Her brother had already picked up his sandwich, ready to take a bite as soon as the […]

Waiting on the Lord

A baby! I can’t believe we’re having a baby! This little surprise came to us right in the middle of moving homes and jobs! The Lord’s timing is impeccable, that’s for sure! Although He has chosen to bless us with this little one at this exact moment does not mean that we didn’t do some […]

Happily Ever After

As girls, we all dream of being the princess with the Happily Ever After story.  We read books or watch movies that leave us looking forward to our future happiness. For many of us, the dream of happily ever after may seem like an impossibility.  We encounter The Enemy and our world is rocked.  Sometimes, […]

Who is God?

In my small group today we were talking about different attributes of God.  How do I see God and who is He to me?  In the Old Testament, the Israelites only referred to God by his characteristics… Yaweh-Lord Jehovah Jireh-Provider Elohim-Creator ….And so many more. Our group mentioned traits like God is love, just, faithful, […]

Standing Out

“Why blend in when I was born to stand out?” The actor’s words cut deeply.  Isn’t it just like God to use a line from a movie to mold your heart!?! How often have I blended? Too often.  When someone treats another wrongly, and I failed to speak up. Blended. When I know that someone is […]

Faith or Stress?

June 2nd, I lost my job! Without question or doubt, I KNOW God gave me the job. I saw him pave the way for me to have the position. In my mind, it was to serve as a means to an end of using the gifts He gave me. His ways are not our ways. […]
