Called without the Applause

I have wrestled with where I am supposed to be and what I’m supposed to do for so long. I knew that God had a special place for me and I was eager to keep “throwing spaghetti at the wall” until something stuck. I’ve tried to run so many times, but he had me where he wanted me all along...(continue reading)

"Let me know if it's not perfect"

When you give the Barista at the Starbucks counter your name, you are giving them permission to make a perfect drink for you. The good news is, God already knows your name- he is just waiting on you to give Him permission to create something amazing in your life...(continue reading)

Unsubscribe

If I can’t let go of an email subscription that I haven’t read in MONTHS, how much more difficult is it to “unsubscribe” to the other things in my life that are just clogging up time and space...(continue reading)

Watered Down

We have diluted our life with filters and people’s need for approval so much that we don’t even know what real or natural is anymore...(continue reading)

Oceans

My prayer is that God will lead me to a place where my trust is without borders. That when he calls me out upon the water, wherever that may be, that I would go and not look back. That he will take me deeper than my feet could ever wander and my faith will be made stronger...(Continue reading)

Taste and See

On my journey to finding grace, I am experiencing God in ways that I’ve never seen or experienced before. He continues to show up and show out in certain areas of my life that left me bitter, with a bad taste in my mouth. But his grace makes things just a little sweeter, and his grace will do the same for you.

Unlikely Candidate

She looked me dead in the eyes and said “You’re very tough. I can see that in you.  God wanted me to tell you that he made you like this and it’s okay to be tough.  But he’s saying ‘stop being tough with me.’  Don’t be tough with God.”...(continue reading)

Shades of Gray

If God loves color so much that he has created colors we haven’t even seen yet, how much more does he hate the gray in our actual life?...continue reading

Grace Journey

I’m on my journey to finding grace. I’ve gotten off track so many times, but somehow, some way, he picked me up like a pawn on a chess board and placed me right back where I need to be- In his perfect will...(continue reading)

"Just Commit"

There’s a quote that says “Your mind will quit a thousand times before your body will.”  Romans 12:2 says that we are transformed by the renewing of our mind. Even The Little Engine That Could encouraged himself, pulling the train over a mountain while repeating the motto: "I-think-I-can"...(Continue reading)

Frozen

Falling Star

Have you ever felt so much friction in your life you just want to escape? Looking back, I see that God was trying to bring me into a new atmosphere; and just like the meteoroid, I had to shed the layers of dust and debris from my life...(continue reading)

Keep Rowing

Mad Hatter

Have I gone mad? I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret.  All the best people are. ~Alice in Wonderland...(continue reading)

Grow Up

There are things in my life that I’ve outgrown that I wish I could get back. Like friendships, relationships, jobs, and dreams. But some of those things are part of an old life that I do not want to go back to. And it's never comfortable to make that decision to walk away. Each time my heavenly father told me “you’ve outgrown this; it’s time to move on” I experienced the same feeling of disdain as when my father told me we could no longer fit in the wagon...(continue reading)

Falling Into Place

Sometimes we fail to get up and get out because it feels good right where we are. But God has more for us to see and experience right outside our comfort zone...(continue reading)

Down But Not Out

Delay is Not Denial

If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.
