Contempt, Part 2

As a quick recap of¬†Contempt, Part 1, (if haven’t read it yet, this post will make a lot more sense if you do) I was in worship mode, and God revealed to me that I had been harboring a very strong spirit of contempt, specifically, self-contempt. I was also advised to pray against said spirit.

Contempt, Part 1

Stop fighting it. You know what you were called to do. These words have played over and over in my head, and I’m like yeah ok, great, but could you maybe remind me of exactly what that is again? Silence. Fabulous. Has anyone ever felt this way? Like you know there is something you’re supposed

Orchids *Sigh*

Orchids are funny plants. And by funny, I mean a giant pain in the rear. These high maintenance flowers require a certain level of patience and perfection that I was just not born with. I had all but given up on trying to get the orchids on my patio to grow….Who am I kidding, I

Motive

As I’m sure you can tell by my latest posts, or rather, the lack thereof, I have been feeling a little wonky lately. Lots of doubts, lots of groundbreaking epiphanies, more doubts, a dash of hopelessness and just a pinch of wonder. Truly, a valid description of my heart as of late. So today, after

I started this blog called, “LoveNcourage” to inspire you (and myself) to live out a life of love, which takes a massive amount of courage in this

Virtual Spiritual Makeover

So, there is this insane, let’s call it, “spirit” of sickness that is refusing to leave my home. I am currently on round 3 of the flu, and each time I think it’s almost gone, I hear a sneeze from someone in the next room, and come morning, it’s a full on war in my

Victim, Slave, or Warrior

My post today is one that comes from a very angry and frustrated part of my soul. It is very personal and may be difficult for some viewers to read. But it must be said. We are bringing to light an issue that has been pushed just under the surface of our awareness for far

Priorities

So, this week has been a real eye-opener for me. The past few months have been a period of extreme growth and spiritual awakening for me. And maybe I got a bit too cavalier about everything. Maybe I let pride get a little bit of a foothold. Maybe I just let anxiety get the better
