Do You Know?

Oh, so many thoughts jumbling through my head today! So many misconstrued notions that God is bringing to my attention. So much fear and misuse of the gift of imagination. And what am I so afraid of? This is a question I keep asking myself, and I keep coming up with the same generic answers.

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

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

No Fear

Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear. It is punishment that makes a person fear, so love is not made perfect in the person who fears.  1 John 4:18 The Spirit we receive does not make us slaves again to fear; it makes us children of God. With

The Butterfly Effect

Gettin’ My Psalms On: Day 3

Psalm 3 As one who struggles with anxiety, the Psalms have become sort of a comforting best friend to me over the years. When I read them, the enemies spoken of are often not actual people (though I have had many instances where my enemy has come in human form). No, often the enemies in

Doom and Gloom

Psalm 3:2-3 Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.” But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. Proverbs 29:25 The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in God protects you from that. Well, this has been an interesting week! So much to do, so little

Hurricane Hiatus

Wow you guys, I feel like I haven’t been on WordPress in months, it’s only been a few days! I’m so sorry if I haven’t been as responsive to comments or read many of your posts. I will catch up, I promise! We spent the past few days fighting for supplies and preparing for the
