stretched to the limit, pulled

How often have you been stretched to the limit, felt like you’ve reached a breaking point, or been brought to your knees? Sound familiar anyone…  My favorite part has to be just when you think you can’t handle anymore and God says, “Ah-hum… excuse me, but yes you can!” http://jessiejeanine.com/2011/11/23/the-gardener/ I am a firm believer that […]

December 14, 2013


God, this is your fault!

WHY is this happening to me? If God is so powerful, why doesn’t He stop this? He doesn’t love me, I deserve this… This MUST be God’s will. God is punishing me! If He REALLY loved me… The Blame Game Growing up you can believe I blamed God for everything. Whenever something went wrong it […]

Discovering an Attitude of Gratitude

October 18, 2013


the joy of giving

Why is it uncomfortable to be on the receiving end or express my gratitude? Last year I wrote about how I’m used to always being the giver and provider. If someone needed something, anything, more than likely I could get it for them or at the very least point them in the right direction. I prided myself […]

Christ Died For Me

A handful of straw and nothing more A handful of wood in a carpenter’s store A handful of water, “Living,” He said A handful of food, five thousand He fed A handful of mud, a blind man can see A handful of nails, Christ died for me.

How Can We Relate?

Though there is so much to be said for the blessings of living a sheltered life. I have experienced and heard from many people that it can have its disadvantages as well. For instance, if we are too sheltered then we might struggle with how to handle adversity or hardship when it strikes. Or we may […]

Love Is Not A Fight

June 5, 2013


Love is not a place To come and go as we please It’s a house we enter in Then commit to never leave So lock the door behind you Throw away the key We’ll work it out together Let it bring us to our knees REFRAIN: Love is a shelter in a raging storm Love […]

A Babe In Christ, I Still Am

A Babe In Christ, Is What I Am

A babe in Christ… I still am so don’t release me, yet back into the same secular world with which I’ve just escaped temptation. For awhile, I need to be protected, hidden behind a hedge, and cradled as the babe in Christ that I am. Do not push me from the nest until I can […]

Get in the Game!

Get In The Game!

Sometimes life throws us one curve ball after another. In fact, isn’t it just a given? Is life not full of one challenge after another? Have you ever thought to yourself, “ya, but I think I’ll just sit this one out.” Granted, too much swinging can be tiresome, but curve balls are good because life’s […]

We Write What We Know

We Write What We Know

While re-reading some of the poems I’ve posted and working on new pieces, something unsettling occurred to me that I’ve been praying about. As writers, we write what we know. I have a journalistic style and am best with facts and truth. I love to read ‘creative writing’ and fictional pieces, but find it very […]
