There You Are

  There comes a time when you just have to trust that you know what God is telling you. It’s a huge leap of faith sometimes but worth it every time. I recently jumped in with both feet to a almost unknown territory. It was an unexpected opportunity and I wasn’t sure if I could […]

He’s Already There…

  My friend’s parents have both been diagnosed with cancer.  The diagnosis of her mother came first then that of her father and just weeks apart.  My heart breaks because I know the pain of hearing words such as “terminal”, “cancer”, and “chemo therapy”. I remember how scared and angry I felt. I talked to […]

Thankful His Faithfulness Does Not Depend On Me

This week I will face a challenge different from any I’ve ever faced. I’m so thankful that God is my strength in every way. He gives enough grace for each day. He gives enough of everything for every situation. Some days I need more physical strength than others and He provides. Some days I need mental and emotional […]

Prayer In Times Of Trouble

How God Speaks

God speaks. In those quiet moments through His word. In the voices of family and friends, pastors and teachers. In a song on the radio. In the clanging of the windchimes. In the brilliant sunlight on this beautiful autumn day. Through email, Facebook, e-books, blog posts, the telephone and snail mail. In the calamity and […]
