Peace Like a River

Have you ever looked at a river? I mean really looked at one…its nature, its flow, its changeability yet still remaining the same?  Rivers overflow, meander peacefully, rush down in white water rapids, pool deeply, wear mighty boulders down to pebbles, while gently feeding tremendous trees, providing a wonderfully nourishing environment for plants and wildlife. … More Peace Like a River

Spending Ourselves

The Parable of the Talents  “For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property. To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he … More Spending Ourselves

Choosing Sides

I made the decision to follow Christ 30 years ago this month. I was 9 years old at the time. I wasn’t forced. It wasn’t shoved down my throat. I wasn’t scared into it. It happened as I was being read the story of the crucifixion of Christ. There came a point that I just … More Choosing Sides

What if the giant you’ve been fighting JUST WON’T FALL? What if you’ve been praying and asking for healing … More What If

Perfect Love

“You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”

This blog was originally posted via That Girl This is going to be a quick read. I’ve had very little time for writing. Mostly because I’ve had very little head space to have any thoughts other than work and school. I’m under a lot of stress right now and sometimes it feels like I carry … More “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”

Mended Vessels

 We have all been broken at some point or another.  The world can be a harsh place, disregarding our fragility, and treating us as it will.  Like clay vessels, we get used, sometimes abused and mistreated, or are subject to accidents.  We end up shattered–our hearts, our minds, our bodies.  We superficially mend ourselves, putting … More Mended Vessels
