It's been two years since I wrote this. And oh, how I needed to see it this morning. My heart, my spirit... they are still walking with a limp. But they are walking, slowly, timidly, back to where they belong. Oh Lord, take the eyes of our hearts and our understanding - our knowing -… Continue reading Find Me
You don’t have to go far on the internet these days to find an article questioning or criticizing modern worship. One of the frequent criticisms is that this generation’s worship is far too focused on us, on our need for God, and what God has done or can do for us, instead of Who and… Continue reading First Love: Our Self-Centered, Modern Worship (?)
To my fellow truth-seekers, I would say this: Be careful what you ask for. You just might get it. Often, the truth is more painful than what your perceived reality has always been. But no matter how painful, the truth is what sets you free and allows you to pick yourself up, dust off the… Continue reading Hide and Seek – When Everything You’ve Based Your Life on Falls Apart
... in a season where my deepest, most core beliefs have been knocked out from underneath me, block by block, piece by blessed piece. This is when knowing who we are in Christ is so vitally important. If I did not know that I am a daughter of the most high God, I would be… Continue reading Free-falling
7:20 a.m. YIKES!! I fly out of bed, run around throwing on lights - "TEN MINUTES!!! WE HAVE TO BE OUT IN TEN MINUTES!" Everyone jumps, runs, dresses, grabs, gets to the car, to school on time. Phew! On with the day. To work. Times need to be entered. Internet won't cooperate. Or maybe it's… Continue reading Be Salty. Be Sweet. Shine!
To the Christian momma whose gay/transgender child died in the Pulse night club: As I write, I pray, and I weep; and I beg God to please, let the words that come… come from Him, and not me, because I am not smart enough and wise enough to understand all of this. But He is.… Continue reading To the Christian Momma Whose Gay/Transgender Child Died in the Pulse Night Club
I could see the tears welling up in her eyes as I scolded her: “How many times have I told you not to do that?? We go through this every day! Over and over, I ask you not to do this, yet the behavior continues, and you get in trouble, every time! When are you… Continue reading When Your Heart is Weary, But You Still Have to Forgive
God's Word says, "If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love,… Continue reading My take on the Love chapter
Funniest thing... Friday morning, returning from a memorial service (not funny), trudging up the stairs with a heavy heart, I get to the top, open the door, and there are my kids, blocking my way. “You can’t come in!” What? “No no no, please, you can’t come in!! Go away!” Seriously? So I asked if… Continue reading Love U Mom
I give up. I do. I am done. Will somebody please come to my house (while nobody is home), light it on fire (just the inside), and then put it out after the entire interior of my house is gutted? Oh, and let me get out my photos, Bible, and laptop first. The jewelry was… Continue reading Where’s my Fairy Godmother?
