Trust Like a Daughter

What does it look like to trust? Like, really trust. Not vaguely believing in the back of our minds that everything happens for a reason. Not anxiously asking for God’s peace while simultaneously spewing worry and paranoia with every breath. Not posting verse images on social media as if our declaration of belief earns us

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.

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

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

This post was originally published on HolyLemonade.blogspot.com. I originally started a blog on WordPress.org a few years ago called Holy Lemonade. As life would have it, I was unable to pay for the hosting and domain and I lost all of my hard work. There’s probably a way to recover these posts, but at the

South Florida Driving – Not For the Faint of Heart

It’s a well-known fact that drivers in South Florida are considered the worst in America. I like to believe that I am above stereotyping, so I chose not to give that rumor the time day when I moved here. Mistake. I have never been in a car accident, not once in my life (knock on

Gettin’ My Psalms On : Day One

Psalm 1 I love the imagery in this chapter. When we remain obedient to God, we are like a tree planted near the water. We bear fruit in season, and our leaves don’t die. Everything we do succeeds. I’m doing a little challenge for myself, one Psalm a day, everyday for the whole book -150

Evil Xbox Controller

Confession. I cannot, for the life of me, work the stupid Xbox controller. The reason is a complete mystery, not only to me, but to my family as well. They watch me throw a tantrum and yell at the console as the buttons refuse to do what I want, when I want it. It’s not

An Early Ending

As you all know, my heart has been transformed over the last month or so by obedience. I’ve been writing posts dedicated to the subject this week, a sort of mini series that’s been, at the very least, incredibly therapeutic and insightful for me. I hope it has been an inspiration to at least one
