The Battle is Real

Have you ever struggled with something over and over again until it just felt like you’d never be free from it? Yeah, me too. I found myself in that all so familiar place again in the wee hours of the morning. I woke up and couldn’t go back to sleep because my mind was racing […]

The Messes We Make

Have you ever prayed for something or someone so long that you think, “My prayers are never going to be answered?” I imagine that’s how Abraham’s wife Sarah felt. In studying through Genesis for several months now, I noted that God promised Abraham in Genesis 15 that He would bless him with children, but later […]

The Seed

I have a best friend that I have had since middle school. Although we may not speak to each other every day the bond is undeniable. For example, one day I had this overwhelming heavy heart feeling that made me burst into tears. I didn’t know why I was crying but my friend kept coming […]

Trust

Trust. That one little word has had me on an emotional roller coaster for the past few months. Knowing what God wants me to do and doing it without worrying or without any anxiety can be very tiring in and of itself. I’ve worried that I may have heard Him wrong (or maybe that was […]

When You Seek Me

This week I have been studying John chapter 20. Every time I read this chapter the same emotions overtake me. It’s a chapter that I’ve never been able to get over and honestly hope I never do. I love the part starting at verse 10 where the disciples go back to their homes but Mary, […]

At the Feet of Jesus

“And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and […]

Lord, Help My Unbelief!

“No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. That is why his faith was “counted to him as righteousness.” ~ Romans 4:20-23 This morning as I read Genesis […]
