Every Monday I do something on Instagram called “Pray with Me Monday” and a few weeks ago we prayed for the Broke Folks. No no no, not those broke folks. The broken ones.
What are you crazy passionate about? What’s that one subject that, once you get going, no one can seem to shut you up? What makes your mind race with ideas and excitement flood your body? And please tell me why you aren’t doing anything with all of that passion? I mean seriously, how have you…
Jesus Finished, So When Will You Start?
Forgive me for prying but I just have to ask: when are you going to get to work? Resurrection Sunday was a little over a week ago and if you’re anything like me, your day went something like this: you went to church, offered thanks and praises to our Lord and Savior for His finished…
The Gift that Uncertainty Left Behind
It was uncertainty that taught me how to trust. Like, really trust. Not the kind of trust in God that sounds good in theory but the kind that has no idea what comes next and and is able to be at peace with that. The kind that has finally come to a place where it…
Restoration is Preceded by Brokenness
Remember that promise of mine that I often talked about in my previous posts? Well, it turns out I was wrong about that and while God may still have a promise – or promises – in store for me, that particular thing was never one of them. And when I woke up on September 24th…

God gave me some instructions the other day that frustrated me. I wanted to cry. I felt like the thing He was asking me to do would set me back in so many ways, including prolonging the time it will take for me to reach a very important personal goal of mine.
You Don’t Have to Understand, You Just Have to Trust
I’ve been drifting in and out of discouragement over the last few days and each day, God has been faithful to send someone to encourage me. This morning, though, I received a text from a friend requesting prayer and it was clear that discouragement had made a stop to her house, too. Thus, I felt…
