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. [...]

Restoration: Drop your stone

I started this thing a few years back where I give myself one word per month to focus on. It helps make my transformation and walk to look more like Christ, not seem as overwhelming. If I give myself one characteristic/word to pray over every month, it helps fix my eyes on Jesus through a [...]

Heartbreak.

Recently, when I asked God what He wanted me to be working on right now to look more like Him, I sensed Him say: Humility & Gentleness. Panicking and defeated, I prayed, “I can’t do that on my own, I have no idea where or how to start.” And in true God fashion, when we [...]
