The Sheep and Their Shepherd

Lately, I have been doing a study with my ladies group about Psalm 23.  It has been eye-opening to see what all God has revealed to me through studying this on a deeper level. Particularly how God is our Shepherd and we are His sheep.   There are three main things I have learned soContinue reading “The Sheep and Their Shepherd”

Lessons From the Garden: Perseverance

Perseverance is often pursued with well-meaning intention, only to become a distant memory seen in the rear view mirror.  Generally, my perseverance becomes significantly stagnant when it begins to get lost amid other responsibilities. So, I decided to see what God has to say about perseverance.  Although I’ve studied it before, I was pleasantly surprised withContinue reading “Lessons From the Garden: Perseverance”

What Are We Standing For?

Anytime I hear new Christian music, I’m always stunned by the message portrayed through the lyrics and, of course, I fall in love with it.  From the moment I heard “Stand Strong” by Moriah Peters, I was ultimately called to action in Him.  As I listened to the lyrics, a revelation occurred to me: It should beContinue reading “What Are We Standing For?”

Help Me in the Unbelief

I don’t know about you, but I want to live my life completely devoted to Jesus Christ.  Not just when I feel like it or when it’s convenient for me.  The way I see it is like this either you know Jesus and have a relationship with Him or not- There’s no in between.  When I was thinkingContinue reading “Help Me in the Unbelief”

Determination in the Denial

Today I was reading in John 21:1-25.   Where Jesus appears to the disciples after they’ve been out fishing all night. (Let’s be honest, they were probably exhausted, discouraged and a little more than disappointed because they hadn’t caught a thing.)  As I was reading this passage, I couldn’t help but put myself in their shoes.  I think it’sContinue reading “Determination in the Denial”

Reality of Heaven on Earth

Grief is a strange thing.  In my personal experience, it comes in waves.  All too recently this scripture has come alive to me in a fresh way.  Our mortal bodies are only temporary and when we meet Jesus, we truly don’t take anything with us.  As we’re currently cleaning out my grandma’s house after her passing earlier this year,Continue reading “Reality of Heaven on Earth”

A Holy Hope

When we hear the word hope in the world today it’s most often associated with the things we can’t see.  Interestingly, the various definitions of hope are described in the following ways by Meriam-Webster: : to cherish a desire with anticipation : to want something to happen or be true hopes for a promotionhoping for the bestI hope so.2archaic : TRUST transitive verb. 1: to desire withContinue reading “A Holy Hope”

The Humility of Disability

I don’t know what my life would look like if I weren’t disabled, but I’m fairly certain that I wouldn’t be the woman I am today.  In writing this, I’m in no way saying that my disability is my crutch, or blanket excuse for not being humble in nature because I think we all struggle withContinue reading “The Humility of Disability”

Don’t Underestimate Your God Given Potential

It’s one thing to speak an encouraging word to someone in passing, but it’s another to call their God- given potential out before they can see it in themselves.  I’m so grateful for the people in my life who have called me to courage before I even knew what was coming.  They saw the potential God hasContinue reading “Don’t Underestimate Your God Given Potential”
