The Last Thing That I Do

January 1, 2023

Burnout. There have been so many things that have happened in our life the last several months, and this was where I was at. There were weeks and months I was just on autopilot. Going through the motions because I had to. I found myself asking the question, “Is it really worth it?” Is it really worth serving the Lord? You give EVERYTHING, all that you are to…


Christmas Can’t Be Ruined

December 16, 2022

I am one of those, decorate-before-thanksgiving-just-means-celebrate-a-little-longer, people. I ABSOLUTELY love Christmas time and all things Christmas-y. I like everything to be planned just so. I like everything to fall in place. I don’t like when my plans are ruined by sickness or circumstances. But let’s be honest. Christmas is rarely “perfect.” Everyone has their own idea of what a perfect Christmas looks like, so different things can cause…


The Building

November 8, 2022

I heard the song, “The Building” (linked at the end of this post) a couple months ago, but Sunday night someone posted the single. I sat there crying because I have a building like that in my life. I have listened to it over and over, because it’s unexplainable the memories that are brought back when I think of my little church. Today, 19 years ago, I woke…



July 20, 2022

I didn’t realize until recently that a lot, and I mean A LOT, of people deal with doubting their salvation. I am not here to tell you one way or the other if you are saved. But as someone who has dealt with severe doubt, my heart is to help. God is the only one who can truly settle it, but I heard a message last night that…


God’s Already There

May 28, 2022

Some of these first few thoughts are not my own. They were sent to me from several different preachers and I don’t know all of them to give them credit. “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the…


Have I Done My Best?

March 12, 2022

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I…


I Will Run To Him

March 9, 2022

We went on vacation to the beach last year almost a month after we had gotten “sick”. I still wasn’t myself. Anxiety, panic attacks, exhaustion, and a flare up of dizziness. We needed to get away, but there was just a heaviness over me. And I can remember one evening after we’d been at the beach, we came back to swim in the pool. No one was there;…


Watch What God Can Do

February 17, 2022

One year into my dizziness, a preacher/missionary with Rock of Ages came to our church to present his ministry. I was struggling to sit through services, so I had put a chair in the back of the auditorium so I could lean up against the wall. Bro. Jeff Bellamy shared how that while his wife dealt with cancer and other health issues, he had been discouraged about what…


Already With The King

January 21, 2022

I’ve written the backstory here but I want to add to it. 2 Kings 4:8-37; 2 Kings 8:1-6 We all know the story about Elisha and the great woman of Shunem. How she showed kindness to Elisha and in return the Lord gave her a child. How that child came in from the field and died on his mother’s knees. The peace this woman showed in telling everyone,…


If I’m being honest….

January 9, 2022

If I’m being honest, I haven’t been honest in a long time. I’ve just been going through the motions. Faithful because I know I should be. Cold. Distant. Not wanting to be, but finding myself there anyway. All with a smile plastered across my face trying to be strong for everyone else. Running in circles, trying to do all the “spiritual things” and yet not really accomplishing anything…
