when counting sheep doesn’t help you get the sleep you need

Breathing in, breathing out. In the quiet, I can hear my heart beat as my body is overcome with its need for rest as I lay down. Another coughing fit takes over, and I find myself desperate for my next fresh burst of air. God, how I need You to intervene. I am now soContinue reading “when counting sheep doesn’t help you get the sleep you need”

comfort in community

Hi chicks! (that’s what I call my girlfriends in Christ) If you are a bro, welcome. I know some of you are single, separated, divorced or in a hard place in your marriages.  I know it can and does hurt. I know sometimes you feel you can’t ask people to pray for your spouse, forContinue reading “comfort in community”

Spirit soaring

Today was to be a day off, but God had other plans for me, which is why I am currently find myself carefully trying to type on a bus! I got a heads up last night, as I was checking an email, and a new favorite song has been added to our to learn listContinue reading “Spirit soaring”

step behind to move forward

Most of us like to lead. To be in control, to make the decisions, to head up the charge. As Christians, we need to let go of our desire to lead, and learn to follow. There is only One Head of the church, and His Name is Jesus. He laid down His life in orderContinue reading “step behind to move forward”

come as you are(n’t)

Holding it in has no benefit for us, unless it’s your tummy 🙂 Emotionally, mentally & spiritually holding things in ends up costing us dearly. We feel lonelier, ostracized, isolated and unheard. We begin to buy the lie that we are not to speak up, because we have nothing of value to say. If itContinue reading “come as you are(n’t)”

Here is a hard lesson I have learned about honor. We can honor a person without honoring their choices. My mother inContinue reading “honor on her”

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”

Presence

The past few days, I have felt overwhelmed physically. A few of my sore muscles are having a hard time giving up their tension, despite prayer and the efforts of my physio & massage therapist. Sleeping on my left side is foreign to me, I have always been a back or right side sleeper, andContinue reading “Presence”
