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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Thank you 27

Today, I cried when I realized it's my last day of being 27. Weird right? I've never cried over turning a year older. It was always "Thank goodness, *insert next age* is going to be even better." But today I don't feel that way. Not that I don't trust 28 (although if I'm being completely [...]

Solomon’s Prayer for Wisdom

Back in March I heard a sermon about 1 Kings 3:1-15, and it's been sticking with me, guiding me, and coming up so much recently. Today my sweet friend Molly asked me how I'm able to focus on the Lord when I start to see Him working and doing things in exciting ways, and not [...]

The Lord is not slow in keeping His promises

If you don't follow my instagram @LyricsOfAChristianGirl - here's what I wrote on a post yesterday: "I’ve been feeling very lost lately. When caring friends hear my broken and lost heart they ask “Well what do you want to do to glorify Him?” And right now my answer is “I don’t know. I’ve lost my [...]

Pray the silly, bold, specific prayers

Pray. Pray the big, bold, specific, scary prayer. Do it. Just do it. He is a God who delights in big, bold, scary prayers, because He is a God who answers the impossible prayer. He does. Not all of them. And maybe not in the ways that we expect. But He answers. Always. In one [...]

“Newness” (2019)

2017 was tough for me. Trials and perseverance. Losing my joy. Endless hurt and pain I caused that cycled without relief. I was lost in the wilderness from the consequences of my sin. The last bit of 2017 consisted of the final piece falling apart, so I was left without direction. 2018 was the year [...]
