Moving Chaos and God

Moving Chaos and God

  My family is in the middle of an out of state move. Can we say crazy time? Oh, my, yes it sure is. We’ve known for a month for sure and in that time we’ve been purging tons of stuff. I’m sure our trash men just love us. Maybe I should bake them cookies […]

The Fear Of The Lord

The Fear Of The Lord

I started doing a Bible Study this week on Wisdom. It’s with a big ministry. Somethings have stood out to me, that I’ve not seen or thought about before. Crazy, how God does that, right? We at times may want to think we have wisdom and know more than we do.  Sometimes we do and sometimes we don’t. […]

Thanksgiving In Your Heart

Thanksgiving In Your Heart

This week in the USA on Thursday is Thanksgiving. I love, love this holiday. Family comes together and sometimes we only see them at this time and at Christmas. The smells and the food. There’s nothing like it. Coming around a fire as family members, a lot of times grandmas are cooking up a storm […]

Pregnancy Loss and Our Hearts

Pregnancy Loss and Our Hearts

Conflict, Refined, Fire Being Made New For God

Conflict, Refined, Fire Being Made New For God

Conflict. This one word can send hives all over our body. I don’t know about you, but I hate it at all cost. Okay, so maybe not always. It’s great in writing, just not in real life. I’m sure we’ve all heard, God won’t give us more than we can handle. Have you ever thought […]

Bad Day And The Holy Spirit

Bad Day And The Holy Spirit

Those days where everything is going wrong, and in the chaos, a still small voice is heard, or someone posts a scripture you needed right at that moment. It could be from a devotion, you’ve read during your quiet time.  I’m sure we’ve all experienced this. Today was one of those days for me. My twins have […]

Disappearing Friends, Autism and Godly Response

Disappearing Friends, Autism and Godly Response

 Want to know who your friends are? Have a child with Autism. IT IS SO TRUE! A lesson that me and my family have learned with three on the spectrum. Like, people don’t talk about this at all. Well, it needs to be talked about. When you get the final diagnosis of Autism from the […]

The Seven “I AM” Statements of Jesus

The Seven “I AM” Statements of Jesus

I saw a meme on Facebook that caught my attention. The Seven “I AM” statements of Jesus. I never thought about this before. He tells us right there in scripture just who He is. We just have to have a willing heart to listen to him. Praise God for these statements. Let’s take a look […]

Spring Time And God Making Us New

Spring Time And God Making Us New

Spring time is always an amazing time. Everything is blooming and  coming back to life after the long winter. Winters can be hard and depressing, so seeing all the colors and feeling the warm weather can lift your spirit a lot. It is one of my favorite times of the years.  I just love to […]

Heart Ache

Heart Ache

Yesterday morning when I woke up and heard the awful news about the bombings in Brussels, my heart sank.  My heart aches for those poor families and how their lives were changed so fast. I don’t know about you, but it sure brought back the memories and feelings of 9/11. God never promised life would […]

White As Snow

White As Snow

  I’m sure most of you have heard about the blizzard going to hit the east coast this weekend. Well, by now it has already hit or is in the process I’m sure. It got me thinking about where it talks in the Bible about white as snow. Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us reason […]

Born With A Purpose

Born With A Purpose

  Born With A Purpose Can you imagine what it is like for Mary? This young mom having just given birth to a child who would save the world. Would save her. There’s not much said about this in the Bible. Each child is born with a purpose, but when Jesus was born, he had […]

The crisp fall air is all around us. Pumpkin everything is out! It must be that time of year again. Thanksgiving! I know for a lot of people this time of the year is hard. Some families are far away, some have had loved ones pass away this year. God is able to wrap his […]

Slow to Anger

Slow to Anger

How many times have we held onto anger or hurt? Someone says or does something that upsets us, and we take all of it in. We tell them we forgive them with our mouths and on the inside, where no one but God can see, we wrap our hands around the situation. We’re like a […]

Prayer A Life Line

Prayer A Life Line

Prayer. Is it something that you pull out only when needed or do you use it all the time? This past two weeks my family including my extended family has been tested. A family member had an accident and the only way she made it through was with prayer. I believe that with every fiber […]

Run Don’t Walk Back to God

Run Don’t Walk Back to God

The other night I was sitting with my husband and I turned on Wednesday’s with Beth Moore. I should know better than to turn her on unless I want a smack upside the head. Now I say that in a nice way, because each time I watch her there’s a fresh word from God. It […]
