Jacob Wrestles With God

Have you ever read this story which is found in Genesis 32:22-31? I had forgotten about it until last night after I posted about Wresting With God myself. A quick summary of the story as I understand it is that one night Jacob sends everyone away, sequestering himself to solitude. Once alone however, he is […]

So… I never take a day off to just relax. Like NEVER! A dear friend has strongly encouraged me to this weekend and I finally agreed (yes, you have to twist my arm it seems lately.)

It never fails… God knows what we need better than we do. Have you ever thought to yourself, “This is the most trying time of my life! Could it get any harder?” If so then I’m going to guess and say that, no more does the thought cross your mind, when you get hit with something […]

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 […]

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

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.

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 […]

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 […]
