Over the last couple of weeks, I have heard the phrase “pouring out our hearts before the Lord” come up in my thoughts during my prayer time. I was led to start reading in 1 Samuel about Hannah. The Bible tells us that Hannah’s heart’s desire was to have a child. Time and time again… Continue reading Pour Out the Heart
I heard a friend make a statement the other day that really caused me to think about our walk with God. That statement was “If you are not on a mission, you are wandering in the wilderness.” That really spoke to my heart. If we lack a clear understanding of what our mission is, we… Continue reading What’s Your Mission?
God’s words impact you right in the moment, as you need them to, but they also have a cumulative effect throughout your lifetime as you walk with God.

You know the emotions, the ones… Continue reading Emotions and Personal Growth
Here we go! We are beginning a brand-new year and have just said goodbye to the old one. The end of the year was a little different for me. Have you ever felt like you were in a fog for a span of time? The last couple of weeks, through Christmas and into the end… Continue reading Here We Go 2020!
There are times in my walk with God where I feel a tugging in a certain direction, that slight tug asks me to look deeper than to skim the surface. Since the end of October, I have had that tug to look at TRUST. As I began to write this morning the following came to… Continue reading Trust
Have you ever seen runners as they line up at the starting point of a race? The image of those runners filled my thoughts this week: the look of determination and concentration on their faces, and the outline of the shapes and sizes of their bodies as they prepare for their turn to run.

Life is a puzzle. The pieces (tools) we discover along the way are tools to help us navigate the process of living life. Have you ever spoken a word and inside of yourself had an unexpected and anxious emotional reaction? I have that reaction to the word “process.” One definition of process is “a series… Continue reading Life is a Puzzle, Tools to Navigate Life – Reframe
