being.

i looked over past instagram posts/pics/quotes/verses. memories. and truth spoken. it gave me that itch to write again. to express myself. to, yes, continue to “go & get,” but leave plenty of room to marvel at being. because when my life turns into something about going & getting (or filling) – there’s simply no room … More being.

Fighting Grace

I read part of Hebrews this morning. And then this came … {take it with a grain of salt as always}. Obedience to God is belief which leads to rest. When we don’t believe we are like the Israelites who didn’t trust that God could help them fight off their enemies in the Promise Land. … More Fighting Grace

Willed

“In the beginning, God created…” Genesis 1:1. He willed so we are. Just that one thing. Nothing done on our part. We simply became because He willed us into being – and for an illogical reason.

We are not art shows on display to be gawked at. We should be allowed to be revealed over time.’” – The Revelation of … More Unfolding

Boundaries.

Becoming convinced that, for those living in God’s grace, boundaries ought to be about love vs. selfishness and not safety vs. vulnerability. Boundaries for our country and for our hearts. Because God commands us to love Him with our all and to love others as ourselves (Matthew 22:34-38). This is what honors God. pleases God. this is what … More Boundaries.

PC: Lindsey Slough   “You should know that if we meet I’ll probably fall in love with you and your story. You’ve been warned.” ~Melissa Hawks You get to have your story heard and I get to listen. There. We’re both happy, needy, dependent, and used. “So is it worth it?” is the question that … More worth it
