The Offering of My "Only"

Tonight I had the AWESOME opportunity to speak with the sweet mamas of Generation M.  I cannot begin to tell you what great encouragement it is for my soul to speak out loud God's Word to these mamas, or here on this blog to all of you.  It encourages me to believe HIS Truth over what I am experiencing (feeling).  I am forced to refocus my eyes on HIM, and less on me and what I am going through.  This is therapy for my aching soul! 

HE is the ONE who can quiet the storm with a word (Mark 4:35-41).  HE is the ONE who can bind up my broken heart (Psalm 147:3).  HE is the ONE who can tell me great and incomprehensible things that I do not know (Jeremiah 33:3). 

 I pray that you are encouraged by HIS living, breathing, active Word, as I am (Hebrews 4:12)!

The Offering of My "Only": "When evening came, the disciples approached Him and said, “This place is a wilderness, and it is already late. Send the crowds away so they can go into the villages and buy food for themsel…

Jump a little higher

So, here she stands, at the edge of her fear.  She contemplates if she has what it takes to jump.  She carefully moves to the end to see how far down she is going to fall.  After a careful evaluation, she decides it best not to jump.  Through the course of the evening I watched her repeat this process, only to return to the dock, unsuccessful each time.  Then, the unthinkable happens right in front of my eyes. She is pushed.  She had been working up the courage to jump, and instead of faith and patience, she received a careless shove.  She came up out of the water in tears, with fear in her eyes.  My heart broke for my precious P.  She is my child, and is inclined to the same fear struggles that her mama has walked with for 32 years. I don't remember if her Daddy had a lot of words to say to her, but I do remember what happened next.  You see, his style was always example with few words.  He spoke volumes through a life well lived, without ever having to announce it.  He walked t…

Rinse and Repeat

I wrote this nine weeks ago according to the Instagram time log. My soul is currently in deep anguish and these words of mine (really HIS Words to me), are now reminders of HIS Way and healing for my weary soul.

Oh, that I would cling to HIS Truth. Oh, that I would teach our children to look to their Heavenly Father when they cannot hear, feel, experience, be led by their earthly Father!

Amazing how HE prepared me for this time (I hate admitting that...because this all seems SO wrong!)!

Rinse and Repeat....."HE is faithful, but we must be looking for it!"

My prayer is that you would build your life on that solid rock (Jesus Christ), so that when life's storms come your way, you will not be destroyed (Matthew 7:24-25)!

In one instance the temporal things of this world are dashed and the eternal is all that matters!

Here is my post from nine weeks ago:

Then I wake up to a day that tempts me to despair. My flesh is screaming to be ruled by my emotions and insecuriti…
