when you are the owner of a broken heart

Friend, today I am going to share from the heart one of the biggest lessons I have ever learned about brokenness.  My prayer is that the same God who is rebuilding the broken pieces with me will give you a glimpse of hope where you are feeling broken. Maybe you and I, we’re never meantContinue reading “when you are the owner of a broken heart”

lasting hope

I am hardwired to be optimistic. It takes a lot to get me down… usually a combination of illness/injury, eating poorly & not sleeping enough. But like you, every day something tries to undermine my hope: I am married to a wonderful man, who tends to be more of an Eeyore in nature, mostly dueContinue reading “lasting hope”

called back to life

Peter denied Jesus three times… And Peter remembered the saying of Jesus, “Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times.” And he went out and wept bitterly.

grace in judgment’s place

I didn’t get my writing down when I usually do today. I normally rise & shine with the birdies, and write early before my day gets full, before distractions rear their heads off the pillows 🙂 or my work shift starts. I started a new medication to help me cope with a new to meContinue reading “grace in judgment’s place”

Sunday Psalm: Step into the Light

It’s time to stop cowering, soul and listening to the Liar. My spirit longs, cries out for freedom, for wholeness. You hear this cry from my broken & humble heart and You answer by shining Your Light onto the hidden places, revealing the chains that have only served to keep me from anchoring securely toContinue reading “Sunday Psalm: Step into the Light”

Great is Your Faithfulness

God, You have been so faithful to me. When I have run from You, You have been waiting with open arms for my return. Always waiting expectantly, with the extravagant love I don’t deserve and occasionally taken for granted. Like a moth to the flame I am attracted to Your grace, and the love radiatingContinue reading “Great is Your Faithfulness”
