This is something that the Lord has really been impressing on my heart lately in so many ways.
You see, last year, I went through several hard periods of busyness, difficult times with my job, stressful periods where I had put too much on myself. I hesitate to use the word Depression because I know there are some people who struggle with this greatly, but honestly, it felt like there was a black cloud hanging over my head. I would come home at night and cry. All the time.Read More »
Gah! I don’t even know where to start with this one, honestly. It’s so multifaceted and somewhat pigeon-holed into what I feel like it means that I hope I can make sense. When I got my word for the year, I was honestly a bit baffled. It seemed at first to be the antithesis of what I felt like I needed to be doing. Which was more or less to take a step back, spend more time in the Lord’s presence, and rest. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that this word really isn’t the opposite of that.
At first thought, we think of many things. Strong, brave, fighting. Read More »
What no one ever tells you about following your dreams.
When it comes to being a creator, specifically in my case, building businesses from the ground up. . . there is so much no one tells you. All the how-to posts, the “get rich quick” mentality, the excitement and the hype. Some people look at the Instagram, Youtube and Facebook creators and think they have it made. That they got rich quick and found the answer to success. And there’s a part of us that really wants to see that dream come true for ourselves. Read More »
How is that little conundrum for you? Honestly, I am writing this post for myself, so if you see me not doing what I preach, call me out. Nicely, of course. 😉
But honestly, when did it become a bad thing to say no? Where did we fall off the tracks of setting boundaries and let our fences be blown over without a fight? Since medieval times, territories and boundaries were fiercely fought for. Someone steps a toe on your property? Hit them over the head! Well, those were called the dark ages for a reason, but where did it become a wrong move to stand up for your own boundaries? No murdering or hitting over the head necessary. Read More »
I feel like I’ve talked on this topic before, but it has been striking home to me more of late. But, first, there is something that I must stress to you.
God is a relational God. What that means, my dear ones, is that He is seeking you. He is chasing after you, desiring you to turn to Him and to create a relationship with Him. He loves you THAT much. He wants to see your face, to hold your heart in His hands, to be in communion with your spirit. Not because he wants to keep tabs on you. Not because He wants to make sure you are doing all the right things. Not because He is waiting for you to mess up.Read More »
This topic is so far reaching and I could speak so much about it. Part of the purpose of this blog is to share my heart with you and this is something that has been becoming more and more a part of my life as God continues to do more and pour our more of His spirit on me and my family. I’ll start off by telling you a little story because one of the things that builds our faith is by hearing the stories of how God works in His children’s lives encourages us.
There are so many times in life when I don’t obey God’s voice, so I’m not perfect and I am still learning, but this past weekend, I had a huge opportunity that I was so thankful I didn’t blow past.Read More »
You know that song. . . Be careful little ears what you ear, eyes what you see, etc?
In this day and age, it’s even harder, but that much more important to keep those things sacred and to be incredibly thoughtful and careful about what we put before us.Read More »
