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”

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. Matthew 26:69-75 In these verses, God gives us a glimpse both into His heart & the heart of man. Jesus knew Peter would deny Him.  Peter rejected Jesus’ WordContinue reading “called back to life”

pressing in for mercy

This morning I responded snappily to an ongoing stressful situation.  I didn’t pay attention the reminder which flashed into my mind to just listen, but instead instantly reacted. Again. As someone who believes how we use our words can bring life, I am likely harder on myself all the more because I know better &Continue reading “pressing in for mercy”

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”

May the Force be with you always

Today is May 4th. Officially Star Wars fans’ favorite day of the year. Their fave saying to post today? May the Fourth be with you. Yet there is a deeper reality to this blessing for those who believe in Jesus. Who have been adopted into the family. Who seek to be led by God, notContinue reading “May the Force be with you always”

let it flow

Five years ago, I hit a bit of a harder patch than ever before. Injuries, illnesses & secrets revealed combined in an attempt to soak me dry to the bone. Without God, the enemy would have succeeded in fully leaching the life out of me. As it is, God held me even closer, spoke toContinue reading “let it flow”

come-passion

In an interesting unexpected conversation yesterday on the bus, I touched an aspect of God in a way I had not yet done in such a way before. As i was listening to the earnest young missionary from the Latter Day Saints speak about his church having the ‘living prophet’ and 12 apostles, I feltContinue reading “come-passion”

there can only be One

There can only be One. We may think that there are more, we may even deceive ourselves that we are it. But what the world screams the loudest is usually fueled by the enemy, the one who tries to counterfeit the Original, isn’t it? At the center of humanity’s inability to get along is theContinue reading “there can only be One”

name the doubt & grab His hem

I am more than a bit timid when it comes to asking God for something i want for myself. In fact, I tend to ask for myself as a tag along, or add on at the end of praying for other people’s needs. Which isn’t a healthy symptom at all. You see, that likely meansContinue reading “name the doubt & grab His hem”

resting declares freedom

Resting is a declaration of freedom. -Kerri Weems We are meant to wield our rest. Rest is not the lack of action, but a weapon to choose. Our choice not to act is in fact an action. When we fail to choose rest, we find ourselves ever increasingly exhausted, stressed out and not focused onContinue reading “resting declares freedom”
