Come Back Home

As a teacher, I would always tell students to consider that the further away from home they go to school, the less trips home they’d get to make. Why? Because of the expenses of airfare and other means of travel associated with a longer distance. Being closer to home, would provide them the luxury toContinue reading “Come Back Home”

Burden of Confession

Reblogged from the blog, “Maggie Tiggles”, by Kathy Wire God has given me a burden of confession. It started when He laid this on my heart: Sometimes, when I want something that I know I shouldn’t, I don’t want to cry to God for deliverance from temptation. “I want it, I’ll have it,” is whatContinue reading “Burden of Confession”

The Ones Who Have Gone Before You

Because of the circumstances of my childhood, I used to tell God that I didn’t want to have children unless I could be the mother I needed to be. I refused to bring children into the world and not be capable of doing the right thing as their mother. I would not wish the thingsContinue reading “The Ones Who Have Gone Before You”

Remember When…

Yesterday, while I was cleaning, the Lord asked me a question. He asked, “Do you remember when you prayed for where you are now?” That very question caused me to pause and reflect on where I am currently in my life. Immediately, I began to recount the many petitions I had taken before the LordContinue reading “Remember When…”

Protect Your Peace

The early part of my life was filled with discord, chaos, and everything opposite of peace.

This became even more important and intentional after I got married. You see. IContinue reading “Protect Your Peace”

The Great Comforter

 Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Grief can be a tricky thing. It’s unpredictable and comes in waves. One moment, you can be happy and unable to get out of bed, the next. I had never experienced the loss of a loved one until the death of my fatherContinue reading “The Great Comforter”

Believe For It

For the past 3 years, I’ve been in a time of waiting. At times, I’ve become anxious because of the uncertainty. However, God has constantly reminded me of His promises and plans for my life. He has done that through His word, people, and songs. One of those songs is “Believe For It” by CeceContinue reading “Believe For It”

“Seeing Is Not Believing”

2 Corinthians 5:7 NLT – For we live by believing and not by seeing.  2 Corinthians 5:7 is one of my favorite scriptures. I have had this frame (in the picture) with my daughter’s picture walking down the middle of a highway at night in our hometown in East Texas for years. If any ofContinue reading ““Seeing Is Not Believing””

Release It!

My husband and I have always had the most interesting conversations. It is a mix of thought sharing, production, and revelation. It’s like what I am saying pulls things from him and him from me. Every time we end a conversation, I’m always left feeling empowered and challenged at the same time. I know thatContinue reading “Release It!”
