All Wrong

Y'all, I think I've been doing it all wrong.  Let me start off by asking you the same question someone asked me.  "Why do you go to church on Sunday morning?"  I didn't even have to think about the answer.  I go because it's what I do. I go because of how I feel when …

Enough.Β 

Seek peace and pursue it. (Psalm 34:14) Every so often, as I am spending time in God's word do I stop and go, 'That. That's what He wants me to write about.'  I read it over and over.  Seek peace and pursue it.  At first, I was convinced it had to do with my life. …

Caught

My sin finally caught up with me. I'm not sure how long I thought I could outrun it. Out smart it. And, well, just ignore it. But I tried. I tried really hard.But it finally caught up with me. I expected an outrage. Punishment. I expected to be shamed.

“God Hid Her”

Because I shared this blog with another friend of mine. It didn't apply to me because at the time I was convinced that I had found the man of my dreams.  He was everything that I could have ever wanted and I believed that I was finally done looking.  My kids loved him. I loved …

Bikini

So this entire trip has been about learning to not only step out of my comfort zone, but to be comfortable doing it.  I've already begun to make baby steps. Doing things I never would do. Trying foods I would never have eaten.  I've joked since Justin first left me about wanting my very own …

He’s Got Me

You know, I have never questioned my faith. And I have never questioned my relationship with God. There are few things in this life that I am completely certain of, but those two, I know for a fact. I know when I hear God's voice. I know when He tells me 'yes' and when He …

Reflection

Last week, I decided to jump in the car and head to Key West.  The truth is, I had had a really hard weekend before. I was hurting. I was confused. And I couldn't understand God's purpose.  Actually, I felt betrayed by my Father. Betrayed and hurt and lonely.  And so I decided to escape …
