Mindful of Me

I love sunsets and sunrises, ocean and mountain views, pouring rain and drifting snow, sunny days and foggy mornings.   Nature is beautiful. More importantly, it is a reminder of two things: 1. God is awesome and creative. 2. God makes amazing things. Psalm 8:3-4 says, “When I consider Your heavens, the work of your fingers, […]

Choose to Celebrate

Today is my 40th birthday.  Let me be honest: I’ve thought a lot about this day and the number 40. I know women who’ve stressed out and flipped out over turning 40 years old.  I’ve seen women go through their midlife crisis by purchasing sports cars and a younger, hipper wardrobe.  But as I think […]

Go Boldly

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (NKJV)   Even as I type these words, my hands shake and my heart is in pieces. I wonder if yours is too… What has you coming boldly to […]

A Stone’s Throw Away

Click here to read John 8 :1-6… As I read the story of the woman caught in adultery, I wondered what she must have been thinking.  Had she heard of “this” Jesus as she stood a stone’s throw away from impending death? Caught in the very act of adultery, she was taken to the temple and […]

Comfort from the Great Comforter

“I relieved his shoulder from the burden; his hands were freed from carrying the basket…” Psalm 81:6, HCSB Have you ever cried out to God with such a need for Him to comfort you in that exact moment? You’re in such distress and despair that only our Almighty Father can calm the demons tormenting you? […]

He Hears Your Voice

Psalm 116:1-2 (NLT) I love the Lord because He hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because He bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath! The theme for Psalm 116 is worshiping as a thankful response, not as a repayment for what God has done. (NLT Life Application […]

Roosters and Redemption

Recently, I had a conversation with my sons about what it means to deny Jesus.  My 11-year-old told my youngest the story of Peter denying Jesus the night Jesus was arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane.  I think that is the image we think of: to deny Jesus means we blatantly say we don’t know […]

Is God Good ALL The Time?

I recently received some good news from our doctor about our current pregnancy that was quite the opposite of what the doctor had told us just 2 weeks prior.  The news clearly revealed God’s hand in performing a miraculous work.  Even the doctor was scratching his head at the findings. Because we are sharing our […]

Perfection?

We sometimes get so caught up in perfecting the presentation of our ministry, we lose focus on the purpose of it! How many times have we missed opportunities to minster while being consumed with perfecting how our message will be presented? What difference does it make how good it looks if we haven’t conveyed our message?

How do we move forward when we can’t stop looking back?

Philippians 3:12-14 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting […]
