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

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

If you read my blog regularly, you know that I have started my “daily horror flick” tradition a few days early. Normally, I start it October 1st and watch a horror movie every day until after Halloween. I say normally, but let’s be real. Actual start date usually ends up falling somewhere in the last week

Book Club #4

Yup, it’s that time again! And what awesome piece of literature will I be reviewing today? None other than one of my all-time favorites, Demon, A Memoir, by Tosca Lee. 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

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

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

Wine & Weed VS Obedience

Alcohol and marijuana have been in and out of my life since I was about 14 years old. My love affair with alcohol began with a night at a friend’s cabin at a campground. We snuck out to go to a bonfire party with boys too old for us and had our first alcoholic drinks

Victory

Victory. We are always told about having victory in Christ. But for many of us, life is far from victorious. What does that even mean, living a life of victory in Christ? We’re supposed to overcome, aren’t we? We’re supposed to rise above hardships, sickness, poverty, loneliness, addictions and obstacles of any kind. We’re supposed

Dreams

What’s your dream? This has always been a struggle for me. Everyone has a dream right? That something they love to do, or that passion that holds their heart captive . At the very least, everyone is supposedly good at something, so if passion is missing, we should all have some kind of talent to
