How self-reliance can become God-reliance

Posted by on Apr 24, 2019 in Encouragement, Following God | 0 comments

I am survivor. I am a doer. I’m also self-reliant. Survivor is a badge I wear proudly. Surviving multiple things such as domestic violence, health issues, and upheaval of community has lead me to become self-reliant. Most of the time, I’m pretty proud of my self-reliance. While being self-reliant, I’m also a doer. Doer’s have a hard time sitting down and not doing anything. These fine qualities can help you navigate life well, but if you’re unhealthy, they can become very detrimental. Being self-reliant in this culture is something people pride themselves on. But what if these qualities...

Finding freedom is a topic near to my heart. Freedom is something I’ve always craved in order to live life my way. But I realized my way wasn’t getting me too far. Most people long to be free. So many long to have an abundant life. What if there’s a different way to gain freedom? Join me as we discuss what it means to be free and have an abundant life this month. What is freedom?

The Backside of the Mountain

Recently I met with a dear friend and we caught up. She wanted to get together and hear how life was going. This is a trust-worthy person because she is a mentor and cares with kindness. As we caught up, she kept saying this phrase which I had never heard before. She said ‘you’re on the backside of the mountain’. She explained you’ve been strategically placed in solitude in order to prepare you for His work. The backside can also be a place of transition and pruning. Yikes! Those are all the words I’ve been fighting against for the last year. What does the ‘Backside of the Mountain’ look...

The day I met a prophet

This past Sunday was an ordinary day which became extraordinary. On the way to my friends house, I sensed God telling me to stop and buy some homeless guys a sandwich from Subway. There were 3 homeless men hanging out on the corner of Colfax. A little annoyed because I wanted to go to Jimmy Johns, I went into Subway wondering what I was getting into. I walked in and was greeted by a friendly kid behind the counter. I asked the worker if the homeless guys had been fed and he said no. I told him I wanted to buy them a meal. The worker was blown away and said ‘Your generosity made my day’. As...
