#momofboys

  Being the eldest daughter in a family of three girls, I knew nothing about boys. The majority of my cousins are girls too... I had NO real concept of men in their element. When my daughter was born, I knew how to be her mom. I had the girl thing down. I was an... Continue Reading →

Faith Shattered

“Faith unchecked becomes entitlement…” ~Bill Johnson (Faith Vs Entitlement) This concept has been rocking my world lately. I've lived in the knowledge of God my whole life.  And somewhere between the first moment when that tiny seed of faith in me was activated; that first thrill of discovering God is real, and now... I have... Continue Reading →

Faith {in the wake}

In the quietest hours, while everything is still dark, while the household and neighborhood sleeps… questions come to life.  Impossible questions.  Gut-wrenching questions.  The questions that no one wants to ask, but everyone wonders about… questions the world throws at the church ... and the church hides from.

Trusting

You took so long, patiently and painstakingly, to build my trust in You.  Over the years, from my earliest childhood days until now, You’ve never once asked me to prove myself or to earn anything from You.  Instead, You have stood still as I’ve inched closer… drawn in by the zingy sent of salt… curious…...

Disappointment, regret, loss… these things can’t simply be prayed away, cast out or replaced with praises and singing.  They are real life companions for anyone... Continue Reading →

Knowning

When this pain hit, I knew You, Abba God.  A Father, closer to me that my own skin.  But, You let me down.  Where were you in her suffering?  Where were you in her time of need?  Why couldn’t I see You?  Why couldn’t I feel You?  I still can’t… not like I used to.  Even... Continue Reading →

Known

Isaiah 45:5-6  "I am the Lord; there is no other God.  I have equipped you for battle, though you don't even know me, so all the world from the east to the west will know there is no other God.  I am the Lord, and there is no other." Psalm 100:3  "Know that the Lord... Continue Reading →
