A Daily Refining

A Daily Refining

This is my year of surrender. A daily refining of my identity to become the best “me” God created. Letting go to receive the precious grace God holds out freely. A journey of laying down self to make space for the new creation God promises. The process...

Sabbath Offerings ~ Are We Bleeding Out?

Are We Bleeding Out? Brokenness defines us, surrounds us and refines us. A world watches complacent and numb While life passes without a second glance. Daily events interrupt elusive peace, but many of us turn the other way. I ask again, are we bleeding out? When...
Do You Trust God’s Plan?

Do You Trust God’s Plan?

Do you trust God’s plan? How would you answer that? I’m embarrassed to say that my answer depends on the day. I consider what kind of day I am having. Then I look at how things are going for me – is life running smoothly or is it challenging? I put...

I love Sundays. Church is at 5:00 PM so I have most of the day to sit, settle, listen and be with God. Moving slowly makes me happy rather than the daily challenge of moving fast to catch up with myself. Today I am asking you to sit with me as I share my thoughts and...

Sabbath Offerings ~ Prayer ~ Part 2

My phone vibrated next to me as I sat on the couch working on my emails for the day. I glanced down and quickly went back to work on decluttering my inbox, which is a neverending battle. Being a one phone family, I rarely answer my phone unless I know who is calling....

Sanctuary ~ The Home in My Heart ~ Guest Post

Home is my safe place. A retreat from the weary world. My sanctuary, my quiet place, where I seek restoration. I desire for my heart to feel the same way. The home in my heart becomes my sanctuary when I allow God to reside there with me. Photo...
Purposeful Living in the Moment

Purposeful Living in the Moment

I remember a short period of time, when my sons were young, spending my days as a stay at home mom. Each day ran into the next and very little seemed to change from day-to-day. If I looked ahead I saw what looked like the same old, same old. Looking back now, I missed...
