Thankfull living

Thankful. Every Thanksgiving, we are reminded to celebrate all we have to be thankful for in our lives. But God doesn’t want us to just be especially thankful once a year. He longs for us to be thank-full every day, in every situation, every time we can. You recall that verse “Give thanks in allContinue reading “Thankfull living”

Hello from the other side

Over the past calendar week, I have experienced more highs and lows than any other time I can recall.  Relationship tensions, tears and sudden bad news amidst a new freedom to be more the me God desires me to be.  All in one. And not knowing how things are going to look when the blitzContinue reading “Hello from the other side”

the road less traveled: on the hump days

This morning, hubby was less thrilled than normal to start his day.  Work added some last minute changes to his day, which he dislikes profusely. All that to say, I thought I had to start work at 8am today. And my ride got me here late. It turns out, no one is starting til 9amContinue reading “the road less traveled: on the hump days”

When Joseph was sold by his brothers into slavery, his true character was forced outContinue reading “your true character”

wading right on in

That’s exactly what Jesus did. He didn’t make it easy for himself by avoiding people’s troubles, but waded right in and helped out. “I took on the troubles of the troubled,” is the way Scripture puts it. Romans 15:3 MSG Jesus jumps right in at the sign of trouble.  He longs to come to ourContinue reading “wading right on in”

Sunday Psalm: Pressing In

God, no matter where I go I find You, for You never leave me… I just take my eyes of Your face. I am tired of wandering this desert of my own making. When I stop seeking the Source, I run dry. When I press in to Your Presence, You release the torrent of loveContinue reading “Sunday Psalm: Pressing In”
