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 […]

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, […]

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. […]

A Double Blessing

On Mother’s Day, our family was excited to announce to our church family that we were being obedient to God’s calling on our life as we moved to bring a baby home through adoption. The support we received from everyone humbled us but gave us strength in our new journey. The very next day, I […]

The Voices in Our Heads

·         I’m not equipped or skilled enough to do that! ·         The ‘in’ crowd never wants to invite me in. ·         I’m not bold enough or have an outgoing personality. ·         My marriage will never look like hers. ·         Why do I feel so unwanted in my own family? ·         Why don’t my kids look […]

Sometimes Scripture just needs to speak for itself. “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in […]

You Can Be Anybody You Want

I have heard so many times spoken to me or those around me, as a slogan for a motivational speech or a pep talk from a teacher, a parent’s encouragement to their child and a mantra for this generation: You can be anybody you want to be.  Even just reading those words now may make […]

Suffering to Resurrection

“Everybody wants resurrection, but nobody wants suffering!” I read this quote recently in an article I was reading, and it caused me to stop in my tracks and ponder its truth. What a revolutionary quote, especially for our world today! In the Easter season that we just celebrated, we are reminded overwhelmingly of the suffering […]

Dinosaur Eggs produce Patience!

We are a homeschool family, our weeks are full to bursting with spelling bees, math drills, and geography trivia for fun learning! When our kiddos do really well, we treat them with a few dollars and drive out to our local Dollar General. They get their own little yellow basket and scan the isles for that […]
