For when you think you’re unworthy.

If you’re doubting whether you’re worthy, just remember that because of Christ’s life, blood, sacrifice, death, and resurrection, you are seen as holy and pure in the Lord’s sight. [Ephesians 1:4] Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. While [...]

Anything can happen in a year.

A year ago right around this time I was in Atlanta for company-wide training. It had just hit me I no longer had anyone above me in-market. That I was responsible for leading a team, a position I never desired or wanted. I never wanted to lead a city. A year ago I was crying [...]

Surprise me.

What do you pray when you no longer have the words to pray? What do you do when you feel you’ve exhausted every word or option and laid it all bare before the Lord’s feet? I have been overwhelmed these past few days. Feeling trapped in the midst of a limbo I don’t know when [...]

Discovery.

Discovery is a beautiful thing. I’ve learned a lot about myself over the past 48 hours, but the neat thing is that the Lord has been working longer than my recognition of His movement. He is constantly at work, constantly moving, whether we “see” what He is doing or not. Here are a few discoveries [...]

4 || So that His glory comes – Training Ground

I have recently been paying more attention to “so that” sentences in the Bible. The one that I always go back to is: [John 14:29] I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. I love this. It takes the glory and pride off myself, and gives [...]

3 || Allow the Pruning – Training Ground

The Training Ground Series – Small battles now prepare us for bigger battles later.  Are You Willing to Fight? – Fighting now produces perseverance later. Warriors Train with Weapons of Praise – Sing His praises and declare thanks for what He is doing now and how He is preparing what’s to come. [John 15:1-8] “I am the true vine, and [...]

Turning back hearts

Yesterday I met with my previous Young Adult Pastor. After an hour or so of talking about purpose, paths, and direction, he felt prompted to tell me I should read about Elijah, Daniel, and Joseph – in that order. He wasn’t sure why those men or in that order, but felt the Spirit prompting him [...]

The devil hates Sunday.

This past Christmas I wrote a blog called Oh no, she’s awake. At the time I felt asleep in my relationship for the Lord. That I was not preparing – or, as I’ve so fondly started calling it – sharpening my ax, for the things He has planned for me. I questioned what I was missing out [...]

Sharpening her ax.

Do you ever feel like you’re waiting for something to happen? For God to move? For a promise to be fulfilled? For your Jericho to fall? For Pharaoh’s heart to change? For affirmation of your purpose? For the heartbreak to end? I certainly have. In these seasons I feel as though it’s filled with endless waiting [...]

Living for a Highlight Reel

My Highlight Reel: Something I’m learning about myself is that I live & dream of my life’s “highlight reel.” Whether it’s for an Instagram post, or something I firmly believe God will accomplish in my life or the life of someone else… I spend a lot of time dreaming about the future and the moments that [...]
