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 […]

Enter Into God’s Rest, and Rest!

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. ~Matthew 11:28 The promises of Jesus, He will give us rest. Rest from our day, rest from our troubles.  He will handle it all.  He’s the only one who can restore us, refresh us, and give us hope. When I […]

He Will Give You Rest

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 Boy, rest sounds good right about now. I tossed and turned all night unable to rest.  My body aches. As I am typing this, I am realizing the body aches are because I am fighting something. I […]

Slipping Away

  When life feels busy, what is your reaction? Too often we equate busyness with success and stagnancy with laziness. The Enemy knows all too well how the culture of America is, as he has been putting this in to place decade by decade. Stores used to be closed on Sundays. Now only the weird […]

Confession Of A Mom: Who Really Needs A Nap

  Laundry, dishes, sweeping, scrubbing, teaching, cooking, and changing endless amounts of diapers. A mother’s job is never-ending. We sacrifice our bodies, minds (I am out of mine most of the time), energy, and time. We pray for our children and our husbands. We don’t complain much about what we do because we love it. […]

Rest Equals Refreshment

 “God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits, to the woman who diligently seeks.  It’s a good thing to quietly hope, quietly hope for help from God.  It’s a good thing when you’re young to stick it out through the hard times.  When life is heavy and hard to take, go off […]

Seek True Rest

  Psalm 55:6-7 says, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove; then I would fly away and rest! I would fly far away to the quiet of the wilderness.” Oh how true for me when the rolling waves of life crash around me and I feel as though I’m just treading water and waiting […]

Breathing in Peace

Take a moment, take a moment for yourself. Just breathe in and breathe out. Sit in silence or turn your favorite song on, you know the one, the one that relaxes you as soon as you hear it. Let the dishes wait, let the toys stay on the floor, that email you were supposed to […]

Peace as an Umpire

Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing causes them to stumble.” Psalm 119:165 This is a faith declaration. This is also an eternal Truth. This is an invitation. This is a gift. This week was one of the weeks where I had bargained with too many events and I constantly […]

Sacrifices of a “Super” Mom

I feel that no matter where you are in your mom timeline, whether you are a mom of a 19-year-old and step-mother of 2 like me or of younger children. There is a time in life where we look back and wonder, “Were my children happy? Was I happy with certain decisions or where was […]
