Suffering in singleness

I’ve been avoiding writing this blog because I didn’t want it to offend my married friends. I didn’t want it to offend God. I didn’t want it to come across as though I wasn’t grateful. But He keeps telling me to write, and while it might hurt or offend, maybe it will be a comforting [...]

The Lord is not slow in keeping His promises

If you don't follow my instagram @LyricsOfAChristianGirl - here's what I wrote on a post yesterday: "I’ve been feeling very lost lately. When caring friends hear my broken and lost heart they ask “Well what do you want to do to glorify Him?” And right now my answer is “I don’t know. I’ve lost my [...]

Home in Alabama

There’s no way to put into a few words how incredible this weekend was. If you want the short version - I found the family I’ve been searching for for years in Mobile, Alabama. The long version: Started almost four years ago in July 2014. I was in my last month on the World Race [...]

Small Goals –> Big Accomplishments

I'm not going to lie, cooking had never been an exciting idea to me and I've never had a desire to learn how to cook past, "One day I should probably learn to cook for my husband..." One of my 2018 goals was to learn how to make three new meals. That might sound like [...]

#9 [Hebrews 12:11]

«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«» Rooted Verse #9: [Hebrews 12:11] “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful.

#8-9 [Mark & Hebrews]

So clearly I haven’t had much discipline lately in keeping up with these blogs. Which perfectly fits into my Rooted Verse from last week. Which none of you knew about, because I didn’t write the blog last week. #Discipline. «»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»«»  Rooted Verse #8: [Mark 9:24] Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me [...]

Rooted Series [#5-7]

I haven’t posted in about three weeks, but I feel as though these three verses go well together as I explain what I’ve been learning lately.   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  Rooted Verse # 5: … leading up to leaving for Montreal [Psalm 3:2-6] Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.” But you, LORD, are a [...]

Rooted Series [#4]: Ephesians 4:25

[Ephesians 4:25] “Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body.” The other day it was revealed to me… “What would happen if someone continually spoke Life into this person, and didn’t let up until they believed it?” I chose this verse [...]

Rooted Series [#3]: Isaiah 35:4

Rooted Verse #3: [Isaiah 35:4] “… say to those with fearful hearts – Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, He will come with vengeance; with divine retribution He will come to save you.”   I picked this verse last week because I realized that I feared God. And not a healthy fear [...]

Rooted Series [#2]: Proverbs 11:2

Rooted Verse #2: [Proverbs 11:2] “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”   Last week I picked this verse because as I said in my last post, God has called me into a unique leadership position for this upcoming year at my job. And because of that, I never want to [...]
