Standing in the Strong City 1

Encouragement through truth as we keep standing in our place.

  Standing in the Strong City Psalm 31:21-22 Blessed be the name of the Lord, for He has shown me His marvelous kindness in a strong city! I said in my haste; I am cut off from before Your eyes; Nevertheless, You heard the voice of my supplications when I cried out to You. When we stop and think, we will see the goodness of God in our lives. But that’s often the problem, we actLearn More

Fighting for Faith

God uses the small and insignificant. The broken and forsaken are His tools of choice. Giving the little you have is all God desires. He does not need or want anything, but He desires you as you are. What do you have to give Him? Your doubts? Your fears? What about the great disappointment you just faced? Do you find it odd that I say this? I believe that worship can be in the formLearn More

Faith Plus Trust Doesn’t Equal Understanding.

        Faith Plus Trust Doesn’t Equal Understanding.   I don’t know about you, but I struggle with not having the understanding I’d like about situations that arise. It’s like I trust God, I put the “thing” in His hands, and I confess truth to myself. But, after a while, I start to feel shaky, kind of like a butterfly in the tummy feeling. All the what if’s start to creep up. I’veLearn More

The Great Battle of the Promise

    I genuinely believe my sickness and past trauma was orchestrated and allowed by God.  It has consisted of the majority of my life (over 20 years) living with an incorrect diagnosis, belief about myself, treatments I didn’t need, and becoming infertile, along with many other tragedies. But, I believe I was supposed to be sick for as long as I was. Also, I think God had a reason and purpose in orchestrating myLearn More

The Pursuit of Submission

Submission is hard. But we are called to live in submission to God. I have found that becoming wholly submitted to God is a pursuit of great depth and has proved to be far more than just giving God control over my life. When I first started seeking to learn about following God with consistent submission, I found how little I knew about it at all. Submission is not saying in a quick prayer, Lord,Learn More

It’s ok to be dependent

It is ok to be dependent.   We are so aware of our failures. So conditioned to be “perfect.” From early on in our lives, the “do more and better by yourself mentality” becomes a part of our existence. And although it can be, and is, great for a child to learn to be independent and mature. Growing and learning to become more self-reliant and to excel at meaningful activities is not only essential butLearn More

I Trust You With My Heart

Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me,  O Lord God of truth…  You have considered my trouble;  You have known my soul in adversities.  Psalm 31:5;7   God’s hand is a safe place for us to be. Even though today might be filled with dread or fear for you from all manner of outside sources. You don’t face any of them alone. When we are in trying seasons of life, weLearn More

You are Always Defended

 I care, says the Lord. I have cared all along. Everything I have allowed is because I care about you. I have defended you. The whole way and through everything that’s happened. The very reason it all took place was that I wanted more for you. My desire for you is big, so big in fact, it requires a lot. You were meant to carry a heavy and hard cross. But you were also chosenLearn More

Living With Loss

Miss You We begged and we pleaded, but God still said no. We don’t get to keep you though we wanted you so. Our hearts ache so badly with a pain we can’t bear…  O small one, we miss you… It doesn’t seem fair. We wanted to keep you, we wanted you here To raise you, to love you, to hold you, my dear. But God in His wisdom knows more than we do, HisLearn More

Stripping Away

This season has been very hard for me. It has been a time of great sorrow and loss. In the past two years, I have lost three children. One after birth and two by miscarriage. My husband was diagnosed with a lifelong medical condition and I struggled with PTSD from the death of my son. We have faced financial difficulties and tremendous strain in our marriage. In this season, the things I have held dearLearn More
