The Decision

Furiously she banged on the keys but to no avail. Annette crashed into that proverbial brick wall. All I need is 15 solid minutes is what the experts say. But who made them right? Daily she tried to keep the momentum going and sometimes she’d meet her goal while others…let’s just say her one-year-old could…

Is Your Faith Alive?

This past week I’ve experienced just about every emotion known to man. I faced fear, discouragement, sadness, happiness, glee, you name it. Why? I was facing some things regarding my son’s health that I’ve never experienced before. Some would just chop that up to, “young/new mom jitters.” I won’t downplay that, yet I think it…

Here, Now, After

“Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.” James‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭NASB We seek and long for the quick fixes and instant gratification, and obtaining those things aren’t necessarily bad. It’s just that life is much more than…

His Masterpiece, My Happiness

As I was searching within to see what this post’s topic would be about, the Lord brought to my remembrance my verse of the day: “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10, KJV THIS is salvation! It’s…

From Seed to Harvest–Keep the Faith

While reading this morning in Matthew 21, something was unveiled in the Scripture for me. Reading the account of how many were worshipping and praising Jesus Christ as He rode through the city on the donkey, made me reflect on how many of those same people became offended when He died on the cross and…

Shut Me In, Lord!

“…and the LORD shut him in.” — Genesis 7:16 Well, Happy New Year! With the entrance of new years and new seasons, we look for doors and windows of opportunities. We look forward to those sermons that tell us it’s time to walk–better yet, run–through those opened doors. What if that wasn’t what God is…

Baby Fever? Read This First!

Hey, guys! As I said in my last post, it’s the final countdown! I’m super excited and in awe. As we’ve been preparing ourselves mentally and emotionally for this new chapter of parenthood, I’ve also spent some time reflecting. There are some things I wish I knew about before pregnancy that I want to share…

Final Countdown: Pregnancy, Rest, Faith

It’s 6:09 AM on a Saturday morning, and I’ve been up for the past hour and a half. I’ll be 36 weeks pregnant tomorrow and am measuring at about 38 weeks. What does that communicate? Restless nights. Disturbed sleep. Weird body aches. Nervous thoughts. Awkward mood swings. Absolute joy. I still am in awe of…

What Will You Choose?

“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” — Romans 4:4, 7 KJV It’s early in the morning and I’m doing what I’ve missed in such a long time: writing as soon as inspiration—or memory,…

Get Up and Live!!!

You’ve been through so much hurt, pain, tragedy, and sorrow than most. The depths of the heaviness of your heart that has begun to manifest in your body with your health has been overwhelming. You’ve grown weary, worn, forlorn, and it’s just downright hard. Answer this for me. Is this how your story will end?…
