Why Confusion?

http://Photo by Olya Kobruseva from Pexels I have pondered the word confusion a lot lately. This word suggests many images that take shape in my thoughts. The thinker with the hand to the forehead to someone standing in the middle of a room as people are coming and going around her are just a couple.… Continue reading Why Confusion?

Emotions and Personal Growth

It is strangely surreal to sit here and allow the emotions to pass through my thoughts, and to run the gamut of them without shame. I have spent most of my life running from my emotions and denying the pain that lingers, ready to surface with the slightest provocation. You know the emotions, the ones… Continue reading Emotions and Personal Growth

Here We Go 2020!

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!

Removing the Clutter

Over the past month, maybe even two months, I’ve felt like I was cleaning house and removing the clutter; spiritually, emotionally and physically. This experience was completely different than an experience I had many years ago when I was not yet following Christ. Back then, the baggage I carried internally overflowed into every area of… Continue reading Removing the Clutter

When we take communion, it is more than thanksgiving,… Continue reading Communion With God

Deficit Versus Abundance

This week’s blog will start with a question. The question is, “Are you living your life in abundance or out of a deficit? I’m presenting the question to you the same way I heard it in my prayer time one morning. I’ve pondered the above question for a while now. Those of you who have… Continue reading Deficit Versus Abundance

Who is Cultivating Your Life?

I’ve been thinking a lot about the word cultivate over the last couple of weeks. One definition of the word is ‘to nurture and help grow.’ I like that definition because it speaks to me of building up, not tearing down. When I was a new believer in Christ, I saw that the Word of… Continue reading Who is Cultivating Your Life?

No More Labels

Have you ever gone to a store and purchased hard, plastic containers that are used for food storage? Once you get them home, you try to remove the labels so that they can be washed before you use them, right? Or at least I do. When you begin to remove the labels from the outside… Continue reading No More Labels

Don’t Let Fear Win

When we are bound by fear, shame is not far behind. I had someone tell me a few years ago, that shyness is a learned behavior. I have always been a little shy and reserved around people. This person didn’t understand why I would shut down or simply walk away from a conversation when I… Continue reading Don’t Let Fear Win
