Delight & Desire

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” -Psalm 37:4 This morning I went for a walk after reading this verse and feel like I learned a few things about myself, God, and our relationship. True delight is in the Lord It is possible. Being in a relationship with God isn’t meant to be filled with pain and sacrifice. Yes,...

You Are Enough

One of the areas of life that I’ve constantly struggled with is defining my worth. We all have different definitions of what makes us valuable members of society. “My worth is in my job.” “My worth is in being a good parent.” “My worth is in being a good child.” “My worth is defined by what others think of me.” “My worth is in how...

Ramblings…God’s Discipline | Hebrews 12

This week I’ve been struggling to hand over my worry to God. I find myself doubting at times that God really has my best interest in mind. As I’ve wrestled with my tendency to try and control my surroundings through worry I came across this passage. “Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their...

A Peace That Surpasses Understanding

This morning I got to experience one of my favorite verses in a fresh way. I’ve probably read this passage a hundred times – maybe a hundred times in the last two years, but today God revealed it to me in a new way. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God....

And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.” – Acts 13:51-52 (NIV) Reading through Acts these verses jumped out at me today.

Disappointment – A Step In The Right Direction

Disappointment is a part of everyone’s life and yet it’s a very hard pill to swallow sometimes. It’s easy to look at someone else’s circumstances and see their setbacks and gloss over their sensitivity to the pain they face. Whenever disappointment hits me I tend to get mad. Not at anyone in particular, but just mad that I couldn’t somehow control my surroundings and protect...

I’m blessed to work for a man who truly cares about the people who work under him and pursues ways to make their work environment better.

He’s way too creative to do it the same way twice

I’m big on quotes. Recently a friend shared a quote that stuck with me that I think explains part of God’s nature: What God has done in the past is a model and a promise of what he’ll do in the future, but he’s way too creative to do it that same way twice! So often I spend time looking around at things I see...
