Learning to Lean

Preface : I wrote this while I was in New Jersey. I was having some difficultly writing. I’m not sure why maybe the change in environment.  But one morning while strolling through my notes I found this observation that I wrote in February. After reading the note the writing flowed.  Here is the note: I…

The Journey on the Amtrak

It’s March  25 and I am on the Amtrak going to New Jersey.  My best friend is giving birth to our baby lol. I am kidding it’s her and her husband’s baby girl.  I’m taking the trip to be there for the delivery and the first few days of her life! I’m excited and nervous…

Truth: God is Constant

It’s Wednesday night and  I’m brushing my teeth realizing that tomorrow is Thursday and I still have nothing to post on my blog. But to be honest, I didn’t have anything to post. There were certain things the Holy Spirit and I have been working through and that’s all there is. But while I was…

The Work Below the Surface

I have always had this slight obsession with trees, leaves, mountains and flowers. Not that I am a crazy nature person but I love looking at the natural beauty. I believe that nature shows us the glory and the strength of God– who is all powerful. Often times the Holy Spirit has encouraged me by…

Aaron and God’s Burden

Dear Aaron, You were truly a trendsetter. The first of the Levitical priesthood–chosen by God to come before Him for the people. As I read about you, I see how God restores your relationship with your brother in the wilderness. Moses wasn’t confident in his ability to do what God had chosen him for so…

Here’s to you, Leviticus

A few days before 2019 hit I decided to venture out to accomplish a goal that I’ve always tried but never completed. I looked at my “YouVersion Bible App”, Saved Plans and saw “ Reading the Bible in a year chronological order”. In that moment I remembered that in the latter part of 2018, I…

The Greatest Love of All

Today is Valentine’s Day. The day where love is celebrated all over the world. Some people consider it to be nothing but a consumer holiday like pretty much every other holiday while others hold this day close to their heart. Regardless of how we feel about this day love deserves to be celebrated. True and…

A Master of Pieces

Now the Angel of the Lord found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, by the spring on the way to Shur. And He said, “Hagar, Sarai’s maid, where have you come from, and where are you going?” She said, “I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai.” The Angel of…

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…
