This Is War

Ya know that place in the Bible where Paul expresses his frustration with himself? It is literally an identical copy of my mind today. Romans 7:15-25: I do not understand the things I do.  Me either. I do not do the things I want to do, and I do the things I hate. Me again. And

Saved For Later

Everyday, after the kids are off to school and I’ve had a sufficient amount of coffee and prayer time, I stop everything and make the best possible lunch for my boyfriend. Yes, I’m corny, yes, it wastes some of my time. And yes, I get excited like a 12-year-old girl meeting her crush to see

Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:8 “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Avoid all perverse talk;

Letting Go

“If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.”  Matthew 16:25 (NLT) “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every
