The Lord Determines Our Steps

No matter what I do or where I go, it seems God has a message.  It’s not complex or profound.  In fact, it is a simple message wrapped in love. Keep your eyes of God. Trust Him.  Find Joy in all situations. Life situations come and go.  There’s good and not-so-good times.  There are times when what God is doing makes total sense and there are times when you can’t see what He is up to right now.  My question for you is: will you follow Him, trust Him, and even find joy in whatever God brings into your life? … Continue reading 

Peace in Conflict

I’m realizing more and more that I love peace. With all the conflict going on in the world, I find myself uneasy and at times wrapped up in fear. There are nights I find sleep eluding me. I wonder what life will be like for my kids. I read 2 Timothy 4 about the end of the world and I wonder if my kids will have a strong enough foundation in Christ to stand in those hard times.  I wonder how much we will have to see and endure. You see, I grew up in easy America. It was ok … Continue reading 

Trust Me. Really.

A few days ago I was sitting on the couch as I started my day.  There wasn’t much in particular going on.  Actually nothing at all. I’ve spent months waiting for God to show us what He wants us to do.  I’ve spent months waiting to hear from Him.  I’ve spent months waiting for a yes.  Honestly, I’m a bit tired of the inactivity.  I want to see movement and change.  I want to see it so badly that I would do just about anything to MAKE it happen.  And then these thoughts popped into my head, “Will you trust … Continue reading 

Simple Goals=Great Result

I’ve have now spent the last 3 weeks with my dear kids.  24 hours a day/7 days a week.  I’m an introvert that has two boys that like to process externally.  I decided to set some time aside for myself each morning which has been named Mom Time. Last night I set my alarm so that I could go for a walk in the morning.  Because we had such a beautiful morning, I decided to skip the treadmill and head outdoors. I normally walk for 25-30 minutes to get in my cardio and then do some weights to tone up … Continue reading 

Simplicity

As you may know, I started a new adventure this week.  I am officially a full-time stay-at-home mom for the first time ever.  To say I have no idea what I’m doing may be an understatement.  I am having to re-learn how to do life all over again.  This may seem funny to some as my kids are 7 and 9.  No matter their ages, it is still a new skill I am having to learn. The one thing from this week that stood out more than others was simplicity.  I made things really complicated in the past.  So instead … Continue reading 

My Old Testament Faith

I imagine this is what it felt like to live in the Old Testament times.  I can’t fathom how they kept their faith in God when they could not see Him, could not hear Him, and they didn’t know the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit.  We take for granted the idea that those people had to live off of the scriptures that were read to them.  Rarely did they have an experience with God. That whole concept was so foreign to me.  The past few weeks God has been very silent and yet I feel like I’m hearing … Continue reading
