Will You Answer?

One of my pet peeves is being ignored. There is nothing more irritating than calling, texting, or speaking to someone and them not answering knowing you are talking to them. If it bothers me, I can only imagine how the Father feels when He is speaking and we fail to answer. I’m guilty of ignoringContinue reading “Will You Answer?”

On the Eve of Breakthrough

When you seem to find yourself in the darkest of the night, And your soul yearns deeply for the smallest glimpse of light. When you’re alone and no one seems to hear although you shout,And the foundation beneath you is shaken, filling you with doubt. While friends as if you’re Job are saying, “Just curseContinue reading “On the Eve of Breakthrough”

A Beautiful Mess

Well. Isn’t that an oxymoron? How could something or someone be both beautiful, and a mess at the same time? How can someone look young on the outside, but feel so broken in the inside? If you don’t already know or can’t imagine relating to this beautiful mess, then let me introduce myself.  Hello, myContinue reading “A Beautiful Mess”

What’s In a Name?

What’s in a name hundreds of centuries-old? That’s still able to move mountains when upon it’s called. What’s in a name? Whether Gentile or Jew? That is full of power and mighty to save both me and you. What’s in a name that makes demons tremble and flee? And yet gentle enough when spoken toContinue reading “What’s In a Name?”

Poem: Deciduous or Evergreen: Which Would I Be?

Whenever I look out my window, I always see a tree,One day I questioned, “If that were me, what kind would I be?”Would I be deciduous? Or would I be an evergreen? (The Evergreen) Evergreen never changing, full of leaves always green,Competing for every available spot in the rainforest canopy, Trying to get every bitContinue reading “Poem: Deciduous or Evergreen: Which Would I Be?”

Cynical Cyanide

I was pretty excited when my dear friend asked me to write for her blog. My first thought was, “God, I have so much to share about everything You’ve done for me!” I was convinced the Lord would lead me to talk about worship, His great provision, or His ever-present nearness in dark, difficult times.Continue reading “Cynical Cyanide”

Deciduous or Evergreen: Which One Are You?

Fall is my favorite season. It is representative of the transition from the smoldering heat of summer to the cold of winter. Now, I am speaking from an ideal perspective. However, I live in Texas so it usually doesn’t happen that way. It is not unusual for fall to have 90-degree weather but due toContinue reading “Deciduous or Evergreen: Which One Are You?”

There Is A Place

There is a place where the Spirit is alive,And the reward of all who believe is everlasting life. There is a place where you can taste and see that He is good, Where all can be restored and His will is understood. There is a place where vision is regained to once sin blinded eyes,Continue reading “There Is A Place”

Heavy Baskets

My parents divorced when I was very young. Because of the nature of their divorce, I never had a relationship with my biological mother. After decades of drug abuse and mental health problems, she took her own life before the Christmas of 2000. As you can imagine, even though we were estranged, her choices andContinue reading “Heavy Baskets”
