Sarah & The Impossibility

       Dear Sarah, Your story has always been one of the ones that perplexed me the most. As a married woman I try to wrap my mind around why  you would give your husband into the arms of another woman and I cannot understand it… But as a woman who waits and has waited in…

The Great Collide: Emotional Pain and Our Father

         Two Wednesday ago while at Discipleship class I knelt down to worship– I began to weep; I could feel the love of God engulfing me as I knelt. I could hear Him telling me that He loved me and I didn’t have to earn His love. I began to weep even more because even…

From Weeping to Blessing

We moved to North Carolina in the beginning of August, 2017. A few weeks after my husband was assigned to His unit, he was told he would be deploying in three months. My husband came home that day and told me…. devastated is a mild emotion compared to what I felt. It’s like my heart…

Job & the Dried Up Brook

Dear Job, I read halfway through your story and I am compelled to write you this letter. In some ways, I feel a connection to your experience that inspires me to look at my life and God differently.

As we enter the new year I’m reminded of all the lessons learned and tests I’ve failed in 2018. I would be lying if I said I could recall all of them. But as I consider 2018 I know there were things that I allowed to steal and hinder my joy, peace and faith in…

Disappointed? Now What

I wish I was like David. He was so bold and courageous that He always took His cares to the Lord. I know that Peter encourages us to cast our cares unto God, but that’s much more easier said than done. It’s easy to surrender a struggle you are experiencing, like having a financial lack,…

Grace

One of the best things we can do for ourselves is understand why it is we do what we do. Asking ourselves questions like “ why did you say that”, “ what makes you feel like that”, “ why did you do that .” If we go through our journey and never ask ourselves those…

Step into the Light

As I was on my knees praying I started praying for the church, the body of Christ as a whole. I got up to write and I got stuck…. But a scripture came to my mind. I finally found the scripture: This is the judgment [ that is, the cause for indictment, the test by…

Refuge

I remember when we lived in Alaska, my husband would go to work and I would be at home. I didn’t really  have a lot to do so I spent most of time in the house and sometimes I would go for walks. He had friends but I didn’t know a lot of other people…
