I see God in you, though you know Him or not. Yes, though you know Him or not, I see God in you. For the master's touch leaves its imprint in every love formed, made in His image…
It can be so hard to accept help. Especially, for strong, Christian women who know God is with them. We can do all things through Christ, we don't need you. Thank you. But friends, there's a lesson to be learned about the ways of pride. You see, pride is sneaky. It disguises itself as independence, a positive, good thing. Yet, is independence really God's way?
I’ve been thinking about faith lately. With all the things happening in the world these days, I am grateful to know Christ. But even more so, I am thankful I can put my faith in Christ! I think about those who don’t have a relationship with God. Outside of Christ, people have faith, hope, and love but their version is shakable, measurable, flimsy, and can be overcome by fear. There is no rest for their souls. Only in Christ do we have this rest and reassurance that all is not lost and God is with us in all things.
My friends were all good at something. Adriana could play the viola and piano. Tessa was the best swimmer on her swim team. Hannah could speak French. Sophia was incredibly smart-witted and hilarious. Then there was me. I couldn’t play any instruments, couldn’t sing, I tried to be funny, I spoke American fluently… if that counts, and apparently everyone knew not to ask me to be on their team in P.E.
Then I started going to church.
First, I want you to know that you are special and you can have amazing encounters with God daily. You are never so lost that God cannot use your life to do beautiful things. You are found in Him. (Colossians 3:2-3) Second, I’d like to talk to you about your calling…
Ask Me anything and I will do, Everything you ask Me to
If it’s My will then it will be done. Get ready to be amazed at My Son
He will do impossible things, For He is the King of Kings
You may not have a valentine, Or perhaps you do
But in any case I'd like to, Share a thing… or twenty-two
First, You should know, You are sweeter than pie
Second, God calls you, The apple of His eye
Can we run? O Church, will we run?
Run together, Hand-in-hand, Away from the hate, To a heaven land
A place where we can discover, Where dreams speak aloud, A place to dance, jump, wonder, Where life was first given sound
Imagine a girl, no more than 13 years old, a scrawny thing, with wild, wavy hair, sitting in her room with her knees drawn to her chest. She is crying. Again. She is thinking… I just want to get it right. Why can’t I just get it right? I’m so tired of messing up,…
I wrote the letter below a few days ago because God has been speaking to me recently of surrender. I love to think my life is really my life, but as He has been reminding me, I am not my own. This contract is my way of re-surrendering my life to Christ. I wanted to…
Lately I’ve noticed I tend to struggle with being independent and trying to do it all on my own. I’m not good with asking for help, reaching out, letting other’s strengths help me in my weakness. It’s bad, I know. The body of Christ is all about inter-dependence, not independence. Meaning, we are individually ourselves,…
