Running with Endurance

A few weeks ago I was frustrated by my lack of time to do some things. Things like exercise, serious Bible study, sleep… My how things have changed and not in the way I imagined…I don’t know what I imagined but this wasn’t it. So a few weeks ago, I decided to just do it…just… Continue reading Running with Endurance

Trust and the Consequences

You know how you think you know stuff and then you realize all of a sudden that you really don’t?  That has been my experience this past week. A dear friend of mine is working through some books and studies with me to figure out how to get to a healthier place in the whole… Continue reading Trust and the Consequences

No Longer a Dragon

Sometimes it amazes me how often God gently confronts me with His word. Lately it seems every time I open the Bible or work on my Bible study or talk to a friend, He is there prodding and prompting and loving me. This past week was one of the most difficult at my job. Sometimes… Continue reading No Longer a Dragon

Just One Day at a Time

I tend to be a “nervous Nelly”…a second guesser…a wring-my-hands in worry woman…a twisted up in knots decision-maker… That probably isn’t a surprise if you’ve read my blogs. I’m currently doing a Bible study about discerning God’s will.  It has been great.  Nothing earth-shattering, but still convicting as I seek His will on other decisions.… Continue reading Just One Day at a Time

So Loved

I feel kind of silly because I so wanted to write daily and that lasted about a week.  Best laid plans… I’m determined to get in the habit because it helps my focus.  Hopefully, tomorrow?!? This week is my last of graduate class homework!  Yippee!  I really don’t even have time to write right this… Continue reading So Loved

My Life…Living It

Thank you so much for all your encouraging words and prayers.  I feel badly that I have used this blog so often to share my struggles, and lately not as much my blessings. I kinda feel like I’m just plugging along waiting for God to “fix” some things.  He definitely doesn’t work on my schedule…at… Continue reading My Life…Living It

Do You Feel Loved?

Today I feel loved. Lately it’s been difficult to grasp that I’m lovable…that anyone could really and truly love me. And yes I know that God loves me…perfectly, relentlessly, beautifully, unconditionally, and passionately…all the ways I want to be loved. But I guess after my husband left, I’ve wanted someone to love me – to… Continue reading Do You Feel Loved?

Not the List I Wanted to Make

I’ve been feeling all twisted up in knots.  If I could attach a video (which I probably can but honestly the thought of trying to figure out how and trying to look good enough in it kinda twists me up in more knots) you’d see me waving my hands all over the place to symbolize… Continue reading Not the List I Wanted to Make

Worth

Recently I began a Bible study with my oldest daughter and a few of her friends. At our first meeting all I had were Bibles and notebooks for the girls, but no Bible study book or even a topic. My prayer going into this study was that God would reveal what these girls most need… Continue reading Worth

All You Need to Do is Just…

Recently one of my dearest friends called to tell me she had my next blog topic.  She’d been at a women’s Bible study where they were discussing their crazy busy lives.  After the moms in the group had lamented their situations, one of the ladies shared her “simple” solution which began with the phrase, “All… Continue reading All You Need to Do is Just…
