I've known this wonderful lady for about 9 years, but I wish I'd known her longer! Our friendship has grown a lot since we first met and she has become one of my dearest friends and prayer warriors. I know that at any moment, I can ask her to pray and she will. She has [...]
I'm so excited to start sharing these ladies' stories with you and how God has used them to help me. I PRAY that they will be an encouragement to you as well. Today's post is an introduction to the series "Stories For His Glory". I was praying this morning and asking the Lord why sometimes [...]
What if whatever you're going through, is part of God's answer? What if the pain and the burden are what is making you stronger? What if the storm doesn't stop and He just wants one little step of faith? What if the miracle happens, before the storm is through?
It isn't always evident what God is doing or even that He's doing anything at all. But I don't have the whole story. Just chapters at a time. Some seem insignificant. Some don't make sense. Some are scary. Some fill me with pain. Some leave me wondering where God really is. I've thought a lot about trust. How do you trust? It's hard. Someone told me trust is choosing faith over facts. The fact is, God's name can't be found in Esther. But faith can see Him. Today, lets CHOOSE to just trust Him. Because He knows the whole story.
This year I purposed in my heart that I was going to pray even more fervently to be healed. However, it seems the more I pray for it to get better, the worse it gets. I sat in church on Sunday and watched from the very back as people worshipped and testified of God's goodness. [...]
"I don't think everyone around us realizes the burden...I just don't know how to do this, and others don't understand." This was said to me the other day and it kind of hit me over the head. It's a very low place to be where nobody knows. Where nobody sees what you're going through. Where [...]
So many times God will give me a song as I'm praying for someone else. And then I end up needing the song just for me. Sometimes days later, sometimes months. It's hard to write a song and not mean it. Even harder to not live it. I'm not interested in being fake. It's easy [...]
Click to read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, & Part 4. I sincerely hope that something I have gone through will help someone else that might be dealing with anxiety. There is one nagging thought in my mind though. Can a person that doesn't know Jesus ever be healed of anxiety? I don't 100% [...]
Part 1 is HERE. Part 2 is HERE. Part 3 is HERE. ....Until that still, small voice gently nudged me to open my Bible to a specific passage. One I was familiar with. But one that God was going to use that night to turn my life around. 11 Chronicles 20:1-30 I encourage you to [...]
Read Part 1 here and Part 2 here. When you deal with something for months on end and life doesn't stop because you still have to be a wife & mom, you still have to work, you still have to clean house and do laundry and try to appear normal to everyone around you, you find [...]
