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

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

If you read my blog regularly, you know that I have started my “daily horror flick” tradition a few days early.

As you get to know me, you will realize I have a fascination with the supernatural. Not, like ghost hunting and stuff, how boring and cliché, but

Psalm 4 I was listening to a show on the radio this morning and heard an interesting tidbit of information. Now, I can’t remember every detail as I’d only had one measly cup of coffee at this point, so don’t quote me on any of this. But apparently, (not surprisingly) wealth and job security do

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

Hidden Treasure

*This is the post I had written for yesterday, but was unable to post due to power outages. I woke this morning with a renewed sense of gratitude. It’s the little things… Bright lights held steadily on unmoving ceiling fixtures. The way it feels to quiet a chill in the night with a warm blanket.

This post was originally published on HolyLemonade.blogspot.com, 4/8/2015 Romans 15:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit, you may abound in hope.” What do you hope for? Please, don’t just pass over this question with a quick glance. I
