What Will You Have To Endure Today?

Do you ever have mornings where you wake up and think to yourself, “What am I going to have to endure today?” I know, it’s not the right attitude to have, especially first thing in the morning…but it’s a feeling that, I’ll admit, I experience way too often. Maybe you’re dealing with a family member’s bad attitude […]

Endure Better

“For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.” Hebrews 10:36 I remember life in big moments. The moment I went to college. The moment Chad asked me to be his girlfriend. The moment he asked me to be his wife. The […]

Life Is A Marathon For Christ

I have never run a marathon or even a 5k. I am not a runner. I am not even competitive. I’ve thought about all it would take to run a marathon. It would take a lot of practice, great determination, a huge willingness to finish, and lots of endurance. Even if you want to quit […]

Chasing the Wind

A few years ago, I decided to take some old junk from Goodwill and give it a new style. They call this up-cycling and I have been really impressed by some of the things that I have seen up-cycled. I had a few successful pieces and got this bright idea―what if I did this for […]

Running YOUR Race with Endurance

Hebrews 12:1 NLT “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up.  And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” I believe there […]

Enduring to Finish Well

I don’t know about you but every time I think of endurance, I think of all the runners out there. In my mind, I picture the numerous colors of running shoes as they run the trails before them. I’m fortunate to have two runners in my family and find it intriguing they prefer running a […]

Life Unexpected

I don’t know about you but one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life is be a mother. Not just a mother but also a wife. I remember picturing it as a child, I pictured this perfect house, husband that looked like (I don’t know if I should mention it or […]

Reaching Out

  I have often thought of myself as a (physically) strong person. I have always been relatively active and I excel in areas of endurance. I have competitively run five half-marathons. When someone finds out that I have run these races, they are impressed. The completion of such a task seems daunting to most who […]

Feeling God’s Love During Your Problems

My son, do not despise or shrink from the chastening of the Lord, (His correction by punishment or by subjection to suffering or trial); neither be weary of or impatient about or loathe or abhor His reproof. For whom the Lord loves He corrects, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights. […]

Hope Abiding

Pain. Agonizing pain. It rips through your body and crushes your spirit. The kind that takes all of your strength just to get through the day. “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18 I have been suffering from chronic pain for over a year now. In March of […]
