Always Faithful

Always Faithful

I had been awake for a couple of hours listening to the thunder as it rolled, tempting my thoughts and heart to roll with it.

But an overriding, deep down part of me, felt peace. A peace desiring to spill over like clouds shedding their rain, knowing God has this all under His control. I need not let my mind and heart be tossed about with the wind that blows trees to almost breaking because—because yes, “ ‘tis so sweet to trust in Jesus.”

Even when my life is in chaos God will never forsake me. I can depend on Him because He is with me to the end.

The end of this day. The end of this season of hurt, heartache, healing.

I Was Robbed!

I Was Robbed!

Tired from the busy, but fun day, we walked into our home that evening around 9:30. As I stepped into my bedroom, something didn’t feel right. At this point in my life—just 18 years old—I was quite the neat freak. But my roll-top desk was open and rifled through. The knickknacks on my dresser in disorder, my closet doors wide open and bedspread askew.

Tire tracks were found in the field behind our house. We believe we interrupted the robbery.

The feeling of intrusion and paranoia never fully go away. I can still feel my skin crawl realizing someone had come into our home and invaded our privacy. Not only that, they stole my sense of safety.

Oh Lonely Tree

Oh Lonely Tree

Oh Lord, remind us to remember that You care. Even when we are at our loneliest, we believe no one else is thinking about us or loves us; Lord, help us to seek You with all our hearts, minds and souls.

Even the loneliest of trees—way out in the furthest parts of the earth where nothing else seems to exist—flourishes. Those trees only flourish because of You Lord. So let us flourish under Your hand of protection and care no matter where we may be planted in this season of life.

Got Peace?

Got Peace?

A golden glow of the late evening sun caught my eye. White marshmallow clouds dotted a cerulean blue sky.

I quickly grabbed my phone for pictures. And my first thought was, “Perfect peace.”

Great Are You Lord

Great Are You Lord

GREAT ARE YOU LORD.
My anxious heart turned angry. Angry, I turned away, not able to believe God was listening or caring.

GREAT ARE YOU LORD.
My anger turned to depression. Deep depression, manifested in my inability to sing my favorite songs. Didn’t want to be encouraged. Didn’t even want to hear them at all.

GREAT ARE YOU LORD.
My heart is lonely without You. I cried out for help, and You came running.

Praising Through the Hard Stuff

Praising Through the Hard Stuff

I’m missing something. I just know it. I can feel it wayyyy down deep, there’s just something not right. Not in my mind, heart, or my spirit.

I’ve found myself asking God, “How much longer do I have to live through this? How much longer Lord, until there’s some movement in this situation? How much longer Lord?”

Yet, God seems extremely silent to me.

Miracle of Miracles

Miracle of Miracles

Quite a few years ago, I heard the term, "Ordinary Miracles". I wonder, is there such a thing? I have never thought of miracles as ordinary. And the least ordinary of them all, the one that still amazes me most, is God born as a baby to become the Word of God in the flesh. I hope I never get used to the miracles of God. Especially the ultimate miracle of His birth.

Simply Breathing Thanks

Simply Breathing Thanks

Sometimes we make things too complicated. We carry burdens too hard to bear we are not meant to. In these days of hardship and trials, may we remember to stop, listen, and breathe thanks to the Lord simply for giving us each day.

My Shelter

My Shelter

A quick poem of thankfulness to God my Refuge, my Strength, my Safe Place.

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, Until these calamities have passed by. Psalm 57:1
