Stop Jesus!

In Mark 6:48, there is a small little phrase, "and would have passed by them". The disciples are in a storm that Jesus sent them into, they are in trouble, alone, tossed by the wind. The disciples see Him walking on the water, yet they don't know it's Him. And He would have passed by [...]

In A Desert Place

It's amazing how God places people in your life.  I've never met Mrs. Yas Huling, and I don't know her family, but her husband contacted us last year about singing at their church. We follow each other on Instagram and have talked back and forth several times.  Tonight was such a time, and she said [...]

Even If

For six years, I've been writing about my dizziness. Writing about the songs the Lord has given me. Writing about praising Him through it all. I've recently discovered what I think is a diagnosis for my dizziness/off balance feeling. It describes my symptoms precisely and accurately. I have not been officially diagnosed by a doctor, [...]

Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus;..." 2 Corinthians 7:5-6 I have this verse underlined in my Bible because at one time the words, "our flesh had no [...]

Overwhelmed

For all my "focusing" I did last year, I feel so unfocused as this new year looms. And if I'm being honest, I'm overwhelmed. Overwhelmed with all the things I know need to change this year. Overwhelmed with all the things that need to be done. Overwhelmed with my family, our church, our country, our [...]

The blessing of being broken

There was a song that my siblings and I would listen to growing up called God Uses Broken Things. The chorus went like so:Broken thingsBroken thingsGod has a purpose for broken thingsBroken thingsBroken thingsGod uses broken things.It had a catchy little melody and we enjoyed singing along to it. But we never really understood the words. I [...]

Kitchen Table Moments

When I got married, (at the ripe old age of 18 😱) I had never worked a public job. For that first year, I'd just go to work with James and ride out on deliveries with him during the day and at night we'd work on our house. Carefree, no worries. I only started working [...]
