Never Enough

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14 I received a bubble wrap envelope in the mail. Enclosed was a “Nothing to Prove” necklace, which I recognized as the title of Jennie Allen’s newest book. I had not ordered the necklace and didn’t have a clue where it came from. I later learned that my daughter in law had pre-purchased the book for me and the necklace was included for free. The truth is, it was from God. The number one lie the enemy shoots at me regularly is “You are never enough.” Yep, that’s what I hear screaming at me almost daily in some form. You didn’t do enough. You d

Almost Lost Identity

“Jesus said to the man, If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes. Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, Lord I believe; help my unbelief.” (Mark 9:23-24) I was determined to get all of my unused Christmas purchases returned before the deadlines.

I began to pray: “Lord, I feel very unsafe here but I

The six of us sat in a circle like little girls waiting for a surprise party. Prayers were uttered and tears began to fall as we expressed our gratitude for another new year to freely gather in His name. A year to stand rooted and grounded in His love and in His powerful life transforming truth. This little prayer circle is not a quick “thank you God, bless you Lord, bl

Hold On To The Joy

The week following Christmas is like an over stuffed stocking filled with mixed emotions. The pace of life quickly shifts and our thoughts point to the New Year knocking on the door. The New Year always seems to yell, “Ready or not, here I come.” It comes bursting in and there is no stopping it. But wait, Christmas cannot be over yet! We desire to pause and relish the good times recently shared with family and friends, but the remnants of celebrations beckon us to clear the left overs. Left over bows and bags, lingering glitter, decorations that now seem awkwardly out of place. Left over gifts and yes, let’s not forget the left over turkey. I must admit left over turkey is not an issue at my
