Hello from the other side

And not knowing how things are going to look when the blitzContinue reading “Hello from the other side”

What kind of crackpot are you?

Years ago, a well known prophetic teacher spoke a word to me which has stuck with me through the hard times. Basically, it is sometimes hard being me because I don’t fit normal. And for years I struggled with that very feeling. Why am I not normal? Why do people look at me like IContinue reading “What kind of crackpot are you?”

Regrets

Like all of us, I too have regrets in my past. Not meeting Jesus earlier. My behaviour in many situations. My response to several circumstances. The lack of love or compassion I failed to show many who crossed my path. How I have been as a daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter, cousin. Wife, mother. Friend, coworker,Continue reading “Regrets”

careless in His care

I have been an avid bird lover since I learned that penguin parents sing to their young. As a ‘songbird’ myself, that resonated deep within me. I liked that love can be shown through a song. As a child, i often wondered to myself who cared for all the wild birds I enjoyed soaring acrossContinue reading “careless in His care”

disappointment

It’s still there. That disappointment you have been trying to avoid bringing into the light. Thinking that if you don’t look at it, it won’t hurt as much.  Harbouring our hurts only deepens them. I have struggled with many disappointments over the years, and I have discovered the truth: each disappointment is the opportunity forContinue reading “disappointment”

tick off the to-do list

There is almost nothing more satisfying to an organizer than. being able to check an item off their to-do list.

I have a tendency to plan andContinue reading “tick off the to-do list”

all access pass

image via Remade Ministries Over and over, I fail. His love for me remains, constant, solid, dependable. Unlike me. I am nowhere near perfect, inside or out, but I am no longer where I was when He found me. One thing has changed me for eternity: His love. And His love is a constant flowingContinue reading “all access pass”

leaf it alone- seasons of relationships part 1

Fall always reminds me God has a season in mind for letting go. Just as the leaves are meant to fall, so are the weights of worries, concerns, secrets and burdens we carry, to our own detriment. In some instances, it may be an unhealthy relationship or addictive behavior He may be calling you toContinue reading “leaf it alone- seasons of relationships part 1”

hope for the disqualified

I have a problem. I am too hard on myself. In a way that isn’t healthy. I tend to talk myself out of where God wants me to be. You see, I didn’t finish bible college. I have some, but not a lot of higher level musical or writing training. I have read a greatContinue reading “hope for the disqualified”
