Tired..

Current situation….. Not going to lie, this afternoon has been a bit cray. My little people have been off the chain. (Did I miss a full moon somewhere?) Loud, crazy, messy and did I say LOUD? They raised their voices. I raised mine. No one was being heard. Tiny people quickly release those frustrations andContinue reading “Tired..”

Fighting With Faith

You think it could never happen to you. Until you find a lump. And then everything changes.      This is my friend, Sarah. Her and her husband have a beautiful little girl and two foster children. They also pastor a growing church in Braydenton, FL.   She’s young. A healthy eater. And cancer doesn’tContinue reading “Fighting With Faith”

It ain’t over ’til God says it’s over.

It’s hard calling it “Good Friday.”  Because for what it appeared, it looked to be anything but good.  The Messiah flogged, beaten, spit upon, mocked and his tattered flesh brutally nailed to a wooden splinter-ridden cross.  Sounds more like #worstdayever Ohhh honey… but I believe Jesus knew deep down, despite the physical agony, despite theContinue reading “It ain’t over ’til God says it’s over.”

27 Things I’ve learned @ 27 

I’m getting old, y’all.  Seriously.   Next year I will be attending my 10 year high school reunion.  *slams head to the table*  I’ve spent the past few days spending precious time with family and friends in my hometown so I’m feeling a little extra sentimental this week.  😉  So without further adue, here areContinue reading “27 Things I’ve learned @ 27 “

Your Prayers are Precious to God 

Reading in Revelations this morning, I was humbled to the point of tears. The kids will be up soon and I don’t want you to miss this so I’ll make it quick.   Ready?  Your prayers aren’t just hitting the ceiling. (I know sometimes it really does feel this way, doesn’t it?)  No, my sweetContinue reading “Your Prayers are Precious to God “

In the Potter’s Hands 

Sometimes we find ourselves being thrusted into uncomfortable, unfamiliar places. Life gets unbearable, painful and just plain sucky at times. It’s easy in our human nature to tense up, clam up and close up. But instead – God wants us to grow. He wants us to prosper and gain wisdom and knowledge. And sometimes weContinue reading “In the Potter’s Hands “

Step Into the Light

Light and darkness cannot coexist. Either there is total darkness without the presence of light, or there is light overtaking the darkness.  Think about it. Your bedroom is pitch black because all lights are off. When you turn on a lamp or flip a light switch – instant light! The darkness can no longer remainContinue reading “Step Into the Light”

Walk YOUR walk.

Can I be real with you? You will never write like her. You will never sing like him. Your house will never be spotless like theirs. The quicker you accept this reality, the quicker you can release that deep breath you’ve been holding in for so long. God isn’t asking for perfection, babe, He’s asking for a willing vessel. Keep doing that thing you’ve been prewired to do. That thing that brings you joy and others hope.

Be real. Be bold. Be.. YOU. God loves you, beautiful. He loves your humility and understands your desire to reach more, help more and love more. But until more comes, be more where you are. Be the best you that you can be! And understand that it really is enough. Be content with who you are, the gifts God has given you and where He has you right now.
