Blessing Delayers

I’m a time waster. I know what you’re thinking-Facebook. No, it’s not Facebook. I’ve found that staying out of the loop makes me happy. Especially during this election season. sheesh! I waste time actively mistrusting God. It’s a hard thing to admit…but, it’s true. I love God. I know He …

Redeemable Qualities of a Well-Constructed Comfort Zone

I have never heard anyone speak about comfort zones who wasn’t trying to get me out of mine. I agree that comfort zones can be restrictive and foster stagnancy; but, just like chocolate, a comfort zone can be healthy in moderation. I like to think that my comfort zone is …

When Defeat Devours My Joy

“In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) I NEED this verse today!! I don’t know if you’ve noticed; but, there is SO MUCH negativity and corruption in our world right now that it’s hard not to feel defeated. …

Where I’m Meant to Be

Ordinarily, being an organizer has served me well. I love to piece together the elements of a finely tuned event. Whether it’s for elegance and refinement or rambunctious thrill and explosions of laughter, I love to think and toil and deliberate every last piece until the perfect ebb and flow …

When My Faith is Small

“It is Finished!” There is so much power in these words. So much more than we give credit. We know it means Jesus conquered sin and provided eternal life for all who will accept… which is HUGE, and I don’t mean to downplay that. But do you know that these …

God Wants More Than To Answer Your Prayer

I want SO MUCH to share an amazing story with you!! Unfortunately, it’s not my story to tell. And, not only that, it isn’t finished yet!! God is still unfolding His story in the lives of my dear friends. He is still showing them all the details He has set …
