Contempt, Part 1

Stop fighting it. You know what you were called to do. These words have played over and over in my head, and I’m like yeah ok, great, but could you maybe remind me of exactly what that is again? Silence. Fabulous. Has anyone ever felt this way? Like you know there is something you’re supposed

Motive

As I’m sure you can tell by my latest posts, or rather, the lack thereof, I have been feeling a little wonky lately. Lots of doubts, lots of groundbreaking epiphanies, more doubts, a dash of hopelessness and just a pinch of wonder. Truly, a valid description of my heart as of late. So today, after

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

Back to the Point

This month. Wow. Just ridiculous. I find myself again on the same merry-go-round ride wondering, seriously, what am I doing here, and why can’t I seem to move forward?

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

Horror, Yay or Nay?

John 8:1-11 1 Corinthians 13 Mark 12: 30-31 It’s that time of year, the time for hot chocolate and sweaters (yes I wear sweaters in Florida), the time for carving pumpkins and my all time favorite, watching horror movies! I can feel your looks of disgust even as I write it, but it’s true. I
