A Slow Leak

“Above all, guard the affections of your heart, for they affect all that you are. Pay attention to the welfare of your innermost being, for from there flows the wellspring of life. “ Proverbs 4:23 TPT Many childhood days were filled with pedaling my bike all over my neighborhood as if I had important business to carry on there. When it was time to go home for dinner and homework I would park the bike under the garage. The next day when I arrived home from school, there it sat with a slightly flat tire. I was hopeful that it would carry me one more day but my guess was wrong. Now I was stuck at my friend’s house and had to walk home quickly pushing the disabled bike and hoping to not miss my

What To Do When God Feels Far Away

Let’s just be honest, sometimes it feels like God is far away. The circumstances of our lives often camouflage His blessings and goodness. We pray and pray but nothing seems to be happening. As a matter of fact, things often get worse instead of better. Discouragement sneaks in and before we know it, our faith has slipped and we are gripped by doubt. The enemy uses every opportunity to snag our hope and we wake up one morning realizing we have stopped praying and stopped believing. The Psalms encourage me as I read my own heart cry in black ink. The men of old asked some of the same questions we continue to ask today. Recently, I landed in Psalm 77 and was just speechless. It begins with a d

I have found Weight Watchers to be of great help in loosing some extra pounds and helping me live a healthier lifestyle. With Weight Watchers all foods are calculated into points determined by calories, fat, protein and sugar within a food. Depending on each individual, you have a certain number of points to use each day and week. I love the app on my phone that has everything I need to keep me on track, including the barcode scanner. While shopping, I am able to scan the barcode on any food and the points are already calculated. Before purchasing I can decide if it is worth the points or not. I ran into a problem with this wonderful tool. My husband loves finding deals in the markdown sect

Intimate Connection

“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Ps. 139:23-24 The worship was powerful as we sang “Lord, You’re Holy!” I poured my heart out in worship as we corporately declared who God is. I caught myself standing on tiptoe as if my voice and heart could reach heaven. At some point my eyes went to the Dad and son directly in front of me. Dad stood with arms lifted in praise and I caught the moment when he began to wipe the tears from his face. He too was lost in worship and I believe he was on his tiptoes also. I wasn’t trying to intrude on his worship, but I just couldn’t stop staring.

Step By Step

"The steps of a man are established by the LORD, And He delights in his way." Psalm 37:23 There in the middle of the store drawn on the concrete floor was a massive hop- scotch game. I found it a bit awkward being that it wasn’t just a kid’s store. Yet I wondered how many adults may have hopped their way to the finish line and celebrated the memory of childhood days. I wish I could have been so brave and uninhibited to do the same, but I delighted in the memory of playing this game on my driveway and the school playground. It taught coordination and determination as we hopped faster and faster attempting to only use one foot on a single square and two on the double squares. We made it a lit
