6 Reasons to Be Wary of The List

6 Reasons to Be Wary of The List

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21 I like lists. I have been known to rewrite my list in a different order and pat myself on the back for making process. I know – […]

Emotional Burnout Prevention

Emotional Burnout Prevention

 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. Psalm 23 I didn’t listen when God tried to tug me away from my driving need to get everything done. I have an insane sense of responsibility and […]

Faithful

I lift up my eyes to the hills– where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip– he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD watches […]

4 Suggestions to Throw Off Shame

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy […]

Unexpected Gifts

Unexpected Gifts

We’ve all gotten them at one time or other. The gift that disappointed. The one that ends up in a garage sale or donated to the thrift store. The one we worry about keeping long enough we don’t offend the giver. The one that hurts deep inside because it wasn’t what we had hoped for. […]

3 Steps Toward De-cluttering Bogged Down Relationships

3 Steps Toward De-cluttering Bogged Down Relationships

‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:39 I’m de-cluttering my house. Slowly. Between various responsibilities it has taken awhile to complete my self-assigned task. I started upstairs and moved items that needed to be culled downstairs to await further action. A couple of weekends ago, I spent a day sorting, but stopped about 2/3 the way […]

In the Face of Life’s Struggles

In the Face of Life’s Struggles

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning?  O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, and am not silent.  YET you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the […]

The Hidden Blessings of Wounds

The Hidden Blessings of Wounds

I am going to counseling during this season of my life and I’m learning a lot about heart wounds. An event occurs in the present and triggers that old feeling-memory from a past wound. If we don’t realize what is going on, we will continue to react to the old wound instead of choosing a […]

Delight Yourself In The Lord

Delight Yourself In The Lord

In July, my daughter and I went on vacation together. At one point in our trip, we spent a few days with my two sisters in a cabin at a state park in Oklahoma. Of course there were bugs. Bugs are okay outside, just not inside your cabin or fighting for bed space when its […]

Sharing God’s Gifts

Sharing God’s Gifts

Have you ever purchased a piece of clothing you love but might not otherwise buy except that it was on sale? And then hung it in your closet to save for just the right occasion? I have. Than a couple of months later I realize the occasion never came and now the garment is out […]

Loving the Difficult Person

Loving the Difficult Person

I’m pretty sure we all have them in our life. That irritating person. That person who has it out for us. That person who is mean toward us. That person who wants our job. When I was young and new to town, I received a hate note from another girl at my church. Instead of […]

A Joy That Cannot be Explained

A Joy That Cannot be Explained

My husband and I, along with our 4 year old son, were on our way to a vacation in Colorado when I began to show signs of a miscarriage. This would be my second one. My midwife suggested we continue on. We were only in the first trimester and if we came back, there was […]

Getting Rid of Stinking Thinking

Getting Rid of Stinking Thinking

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2 (NIV) More times than I care to admit, I’ve purchased a new item of clothing […]

Putting On Christ

Putting On Christ

My son, the new Marine is now engaged. Not only has he left the nest, but someone else is taking a prominent place in his life. There have been some hurt feelings and frustrations along the way and I have not always chosen the best attitude in the middle of this deluge of emotions that […]

New Identity

New Identity

Next week I go to see my son graduate from boot camp. He will no longer be a recruit. He will be one of the few, the proud, the Marines. Boot camp takes young men and women and trains them to be warriors prepared to defend our country. They yell at them. Push them hard. […]

Return to Worship

Return to Worship

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what […]
