Take Courage – He’s in the Waiting

Take courage friends! God is in the waiting! He will keep every promise he has given. Whew… To say I can’t get enough of this song, Take Courage by Kristine Dimarco, is an understatement. Bethel, as always, brings such hope and victory through their music. For the longest time I was just listening to this song through the Bethel app, but it’s finally out on youtube now so I am ….

Acts 1:7 God’s Timetable #142

Acts 1 begins with Peter’s ministry. Verse 6 starts off with the disciples wondering about the kingdom, as they often had before. After they asked the Lord when he would restore the kingdom, Jesus replied in Acts 1:7, “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.” Just as held true in these verses, God still sets the timetable for ….

A Letter to the Mom in the Making

Dear Mom in the Making, My heart goes out to you. I don’t know if this letter finds you filled with an outpouring of hope or overcome with feelings of fear or defeat. From experience, I know that the emotions can span such a wide range on any given day. No matter how you are feeling today, please know that you aren’t alone. If you feel like you are, that ….

Keep Dreaming

Keep dreaming. A pastor reminded me of this last week and this post related to the same topic has been sitting in my draft folder for awhile. So here we go, I am finally refining it and hitting publish. This post was started out of a desire to encourage believers to keep dreaming both relating to dreams while sleeping and dreams as in the desires within your heart. However, today ….

Matthew 11:6 Unoffendable #141

I have shared about the spirit of offense several times on this blog including encouragement to be unoffendable and how I have been dealing with my own emotions of being offended with God. Clearly based on what the Lord is teaching me I should have shared Matthew 11:6 a long time ago which says, “Blessed is the one who is not offended by me.” The context of this scripture takes place ….

Rerouting

I mentioned briefly in my Aquathlon race recap that there was confusion during my 1 mile swim. I was part of the first wave to start and since swimming is a strength for me, I decided to start out at the front of the wave. I tried to pace myself, reminding myself that this wasn’t a sprint and it was important that I found my rhythm. However after rounding the first …. Continue Reading

Aquathlon

This past weekend I competed in my first Aquathlon which was hosted by Tri-Now. Technically, it was my second, but first official. Last year I signed up for this exact race, but when it got canceled I decided to do it on my own. However, racing on your own isn’t the same and I only had access to a local pool, so technically that one doesn’t count! I absolutely loved …. Continue Reading

Love Others Romans 12:9-10 #140

In light of a hard week I thought I would share Romans 12:9-10 which says, “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.  Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” Because I live in Dallas and my husband is in law enforcement, the events that transpired last Thursday night have really hit home. All it took was one individual that …. Continue Reading

Better Not Bitter

Every circumstance or situation you come across can leave you taking two routes: the route that makes you better or the route that makes you bitter. Do you realize that everything you face is meant to build you up and mold you into the image of Christ? Whether it’s the loss of a spouse, a financial crisis, or infertility your heartache and trial are not supposed to be without purpose. Yes, …. Continue Reading

How to Overcome Disappointment

We all get disappointed, right? It might be over something minor like canceled weekend plans, but other times it might be much larger like waiting four years to have children. Either way, have you been disappointed lately? I know I have on several various occasions and if I were completely honest those feelings as of lately occur monthly when I realize once again, I am still not pregnant. But, regardless of ….
