The importance of real healing

Are you willing to wait for the best that’s yet to come? A few months ago I posted about the “dust” in my life. Painful memories and experiences that I was almost healed from. Key word - almost. There were still attacks. But they were small, and nothing compared to how they used to be. [...]

The power of your story

One day, there is going to be an adulterous woman that God places in my life. A woman that has hurt and betrayed everyone she knows. A woman filled with lies and manipulation and a deep need to feel like she's in control. A woman who puts on the air of love toward others, but [...]

Letting God grow them is worth it

The other day I text my friend Lindsay the video/gif version of this picture. “How I feel about our friendship. This would be either of us” “Hahahahahahahaha where were you in college” Our friendship came out of nowhere. We met at a friend’s house in a group setting, and then through a series of random [...]

Did you know: There’s more than this

Did you know there’s a version of life where the emptiness you feel doesn’t exist?  Did you know there’s a version of life where the love you crave is freely given?  It’s not earned or taken away the second you mess up - because you will mess up - but a love that is not [...]

Life through the Spirit

Not going to lie, I have this awesome dream that my husband and I will meet because he boldly gets up on a stage one day, or boldly approaches me, out of obedience to the Lord and a prompting from the Spirit so strong he can't ignore it, and speaks truth into me in such a [...]

Restore the sparkle to my eyes

At some point over the past year, I stopped journaling. I’ve always been super into writing everything down, in specific detail, no matter what, because I wanted to have everything documented. Every situation, every conversation, every emotion that was important to my circumstance at that time. I loved it because when I’d look back on [...]

Seasons – Winter

Like the frost on a rose Winter comes for us all Oh how nature acquaints us With the nature of patience Like a seed in the snow I’ve been buried to grow For Your promise is loyal From seed to sequoia I know Though the winter is long  Even richer the harvest it brings Though [...]

Restoration: Drop your stone

I started this thing a few years back where I give myself one word per month to focus on. It helps make my transformation and walk to look more like Christ, not seem as overwhelming. If I give myself one characteristic/word to pray over every month, it helps fix my eyes on Jesus through a [...]

Grieve

Did you know that scripture says to grieve your sin? James 4:9 declares: Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. - NLT Have you grieved your sin lately? I know I used to think [...]

Christmas Dreams

Christmastime. In all honesty, I have a love/hate relationship with Christmas. Because it's the end of the year and it's filled with down-time to reflect, the memories come flooding. There are lots of painful memories associated with Christmas over the years. But with reflection comes restoration, correction, and redirection. Christmas sometimes feels like a breath [...]
