When We Need Comfort

When We Need Comfort

Reflecting on our past painful situations can be even more painful than the original moments themselves.  We remember each moment, how we felt in those moments, and how they’ve altered our lives since then.  We mourn the person we were before those moments, and we wonder how we could have avoided that pain. God wants […]

Captivate Your Thoughts

Captivate Your Thoughts

We have opportunities to obey, glorify or follow Christ many times throughout the day.  Sometimes those opportunities are large and public, and other times they are small and private.  Can you hear God pulls you to follow him? Sometimes we fight with God with what he’s asking us to do.  Perhaps we feel we do […]

Giving Grace

Giving Grace

We’ve been burned by others before.  Some of those burns were third degree, some were superficial, but they all caused a level of pain.  That pain can create scars and lasting impacts to our relationships.  That pain may even completely end a relationship.  Regardless of how we choose to move forward within those burns, one […]

When We Worry

When We Worry

  Worrying can completely immobilize us.  It can make us obsess about the past, panic about possible outcomes, and even cause physical reactions.  We can completely destroy our emotional and physical wellbeing with worry and anxiety. Sometimes our worries are triggered from past experiences, sometimes they are triggered due to the unknown, or even for a […]

Closed Doors

Closed Doors

We’ve all had doors shut in our faces.  Some doors were ones we really wanted to walk through, some we may even feel we were halfway through and suddenly they’re closed.  Locked shut without any ability to get through.  A lot of times we find ourselves continuing to knock on the same door, begging for […]

Words Reflect Our Hearts

Words Reflect Our Hearts

  Have you ever wished you could take something you said back, or rephrased it in a more gentle way?  Have you ever been on the other end of harsh words and felt: “If it had just been said like this, I would have understood?” Our words are powerful.  We can build up or tear down […]

Overwhelmed

Overwhelmed

Have you ever made a to do list for the weekend, taken one look at it and chosen not to do anything because the list was too daunting? Sometimes looking at our large lists of tasks can be so overwhelming that we freeze and are unable to even begin chipping away at it. Large goals […]

When It Feels Like No One Loves You

When It Feels Like No One Loves You

My five-year-old got in trouble last night.  It started with a minor mishap, followed by a lot of whining, leading to a larger mishap, leading to a larger consequence, and the pattern repeated until he was finally put to bed early without a few privileges he’s used to.  He was angry. He was sad.  From […]

I’m Controlling

I’m Controlling

  I’m a control freak. I would rather do things myself than allow someone to do them for me.  I don’t like surprise plans because I worry about logistics being overlooked. I know that this is one of my largest flaws. My controlling ways were put to the test in 2016. My husband and I […]

For the Deeply Imperfect

For the Deeply Imperfect

This time of year, while we are “backing up” and planning for the new year, thinking of our goals, and reflecting on our imperfections, it’s easy to start feeling a little weighed down by our imperfections.  We are flawed.  We are recognizing, yet again, that we don’t have it all together.  We are living in […]
