Kindness of God

Posted by on Mar 5, 2020 in Book, Encouragement | 0 comments

God are you really good and kind? I haven’t believed God to be kind because of what I’ve walked through. So many compromises have taken root because of wounding, lies and unbelief. Those “foxes” have been healed and removed only by me trusting His voice. Learning to trust those whispers of love and hope, and rooting out the weeds of unbelief in my heart. This whole battle (the last 3 years) has never been about God taking something away; it has been about God leading me through a journey to recapture my heart and reveal His goodness and kindness to me. His love and His spoken word by the...

Which Path?

Posted by on Feb 2, 2020 in Book, Following God | 0 comments

Anyone else feel like Noah in the Bible?  You’re building a ship with no rain. It’s raining somewhere else, but not in your yard. These are the moments I ask God to show up. Because in the natural I can’t see which path to take or the next bend in the road. It’s okay to not know the future, but what if the future is only about obedience and nothing else? These are the wrestling questions I ask. So which path do you choose? God closes doors to open doors. This is the truth! Especially in our lives over the last three years. God has shut so many doors, but has started to open crazy doors which...

I put God in a box. A pretty, blue, large-sized box. Full of compartments where He could only oversee certain parts of my life at certain times.

Somewhere along the way this box mentality started to shift. God showed up in 2017 and started reshaping my box. The box completely disappeared once the reshaping began. I took Him out of the box and let Him be in charge. Of. It. All. No more box How do you do that, you ask? Well I finally got my head...

Summer, our season of being free, is coming to a close. Each summer we take intentional time to hang out as a family. We only have so many summers with our kids and I hope to be able to enjoy each one. This means I put a lot of things on hold and just soak up the time with my sweeties. When September comes, we pick up the pace of life. For me this summer was about realizing our personal freedoms. In the U.S., we have the freedom to live life as we like. This got me thinking about the freedoms we have as believers. What are our freedoms? We are free to live abundantly, forgive and love....

4 Ways to Find Freedom

Posted by on Jun 22, 2019 in Book, Following God | 0 comments

In my 20’s, I tried everything I thought would bring me happiness. I tried to fill a void with sex, food, alcohol, and shopping. Oh how I wish I had the money I spent after my divorce. Part of it was having the freedom to shop after being financially abused and part of it was being careless. This is where my journey veered into finding freedom. I wanted to be free from the things poisoning my life on a regular basis. Now, there is nothing wrong with shopping, sex in the right context and food. But when those things are controlling you, it can become a big problem. Let’s delve into the 4...
