Hello lovely friends!
I will be taking a break from posting on this blog. Stay tuned though, it will be re-launched as an online resource for believers at the beginning of May!
Thank you all for your continuous support and encouragement! I promise to keep you all updated on the process, and hope you choose to follow along with the new launch ❤
It’s been a while since I’ve stared at a blank screen for the sole purpose of letting it all out. I would look to this act as a place of peace, joy, pouring out, and consuming. A perfect cluster of beauty and brokenness that I ran to on a daily basis.
How quickly do you lose site of your gift when life gets in the way? I lost it. And I’m running full force back at it.
I am overwhelmed with this realization. That even in an act of ministry we can fail and fail hard. Why? We may all be called to minister, but none of us are qualified. Because though the bow is tied, and the wrapping is shiny, we are broken and shattered on the inside. We are sinners at heart and perfection should not be our end game, yet we constantly make it so. Without even realizing it I turned my purpose into a job; another task on my list; and a deadline I needed to meet. I allowed the devil to use the joy in God to be the turn from God. Read More
Have you ever wondered why we shy away from direct verbiage? The words that dig deep; the ones with a harsh connotation and leave us somewhat uncomfortable inside. We beat around the bush. We tiptoe the conversation in order to make ourselves or someone else feel at ease. We don’t even realize we do it, yet it is a constant piece of work in our minds every single day. It’s an instant thought that suggests we might offend someone, or they might not understand our passion, so therefore, we change the wording.
As a writer, this irks me. My heart aches for the beautiful language we were meant to speak, but so often cover. This gift of communication is undefinable, it’s hard to grasp its root, its birth- yet we easily take it for granted by allowing our minds to suppress its’ power. Read More
Our culture tends to revolve around eliminating darkness. We want to lie away our wrongdoings, hide the shame, and cover up the deceit. We choose naivety in order to make the world seem like a “better” place. We tell each other our sin is acceptable; and ourselves that we’re better than our neighbor. We’ve developed a mindset of moral ladders and as long as we’re not on the bottom, we’ll survive.
Even as believers, we tend to fall in this trap. We sugarcoat life’s unexpectedness and harshness with the idea of “God’s plan” and “everything happens for a reason”. Somewhere along the line we lost sight of the truth and let our vulnerabilities run the show.
So, what is the truth? Read More
I have had the privilege of guest posting on a website Elevated Faith. If you have not heard of this company take some time and check them out! Their mission to serve and spread the good news is amazing. Not to mention their apparel is to die for.
