talk to me

There are many voices we listen to, but one that can do the most damage if we give it free rein. And it may be impacted by the enemy, but it isn’t him. It’s my, your inner voice.  Our self talk can block us from hearing God’s voice, keeping our minds so humming we are leftContinue reading “talk to me”

scaredy cat, come to the Son

I have lived more of my life than I am comfortable admitting as a scaredy cat. Afraid of what others think, promises  how God would treat me if He really knew all I had done, afraid of making a misstep, afraid of my own shadow. Fear turns into anxiety when it isn’t kept in check.Continue reading “scaredy cat, come to the Son”

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”

Bind us together

Like the anticipation of the arrival of spring, the Word has moving, stirring and growing deeper within me in a few areas as of late, but especially His desire for unity. How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! Psalm 133:1 God is blessed when we live in community. EvenContinue reading “Bind us together”

when the enemy begins his assault, run for Refuge

When you are moving forward into the new place God has called you to, or the dream is spreading its wings and starting to unfurl, the inevitable usually happens. The enemy begins his assault. His assignment? To stop you from being free in Christ. To hinder you from becoming who God designed you to be.Continue reading “when the enemy begins his assault, run for Refuge”

when the pain cries out to be heard

I woke up this morning to my worst overall pain day in a long while. I am not going to tell you exactly what hurts, because I had a revelation about pain earlier today I need to share. I have spent too much of my life listening to pain’s voice speak louder than God’s voice.Continue reading “when the pain cries out to be heard”

Steep in His Love

Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. Matthew 6:33 MSG Afraid of missing out? I know I am at times…maybe more than I am comfortable admitting! There are days where I don’t get in those things I love to do,Continue reading “Steep in His Love”

caught in the headlights

The other day, someone was speaking highly about a skill I have while I was in the room, and I felt uncomfortable. I felt awkwardly caught in the headlights! The issue wasn’t that I had overheard, because the person knew I was there. The real issue? I am not used to praise and compliments, especially inContinue reading “caught in the headlights”

You make beautiful things out of the dust You make beautiful things out of us Beautiful Things, Tim Neufeld God sees something beautiful in messy, broken me. The same is true of you.

cracked

Forget your perfect offering  There is a crack in everything  That’s how the light gets in. -Leonard Cohen Those who know me best know I am slightly cracked. Not just because I have an off the wall sense of humor at times, but for a lesser known reason. I believe its okay not to beContinue reading “cracked”
