Suffering in singleness

I’ve been avoiding writing this blog because I didn’t want it to offend my married friends. I didn’t want it to offend God. I didn’t want it to come across as though I wasn’t grateful. But He keeps telling me to write, and while it might hurt or offend, maybe it will be a comforting [...]

Obey the little promptings

Do you ever get a funny little feeling you’re supposed to do something? Or not do something?  I do. Sometimes it’s deep within my soul. Sometimes it’s a gut feeling. Sometimes it’s just a logical thought that makes sense.  Sometimes it’s rereading journals or scripture and seeing a theme. Here are a few that have [...]

(dunk 7x) – Simple obedience isn’t always easy

A year ago today, the Lord did something incredibly unexpected with one of my Jericho Prayers... He answered it. And He answered it in such a way that was so precious, so abundant, and just honestly so amazing, I was in awe. My joy and gratitude were overflowing because the entire time I prayed for [...]

Fear of having Faith kills dreams

One of my spiritual gifts is "Faith." For the longest time I lived life not understanding why people didn't have the same amount of confidence in God as I did. "What do you mean you doubt He'll do that for you? He is GOD so of course He can!" I didn't understand until I realized [...]

“When you know you know”

I'm not the biggest fan of this phrase. And I wasn't going to write about it until after I was married, because what right do I have to claim I don't like it when I'm not even married? What if I do have a "When you know you know" kind of meet and greet with [...]

My Anxiety Monster

For some reason I thought I’ve talked about anxiety on here before, but apparently I can’t find it. So if that’s the case, we’re going to talk about anxiety today.  Back at the end of 2017 into 2018 I struggled with a lot of anxiety. Anxiety was never something I’d really dealt with before and [...]

When Answered Prayers = A Locked Door

Greed —> Coveting —> Idolatry. “People get pretty upset when someone messes with their idols.” Father? What am I coveting? What have I made an idol in my life? What are the things I want more than you sometimes? Father I feel like I just wanted a miracle. I wanted something that was filled with [...]

Thank you for unanswered prayers

Back in college there was a man I thought I wanted to marry. This past weekend, he married someone else. Lord. Thank you for never answering my prayers about that man.  Thank you that he was not actually my husband.  Lord, thank you for protecting me from a man that was completely wrong for me. [...]

Break through what is not You

A few days ago a friend of mine was really on my heart, so I text her to hang out. Last night we got dinner and before we parted, joked, "Maybe this was why God wanted us to meet up!" We had just spent a good amount of time sharing similar struggles and experiences, ones [...]

What am I doing wrong?

"What am I doing wrong? I'd do whatever it took for my life to look a certain way, to get what I want... if only I knew what it would take."  “You’re looking for a method to make life work. That’s the Old Way. Whatever method you choose becomes your master. You’ve served many masters [...]
