When Suffering Became a Gift

Ah, here we are in 2015 and I can happily announce that I am delighted to enter a new year. Although I grew significantly in my spiritual life and relationship with God, I am relieved to have this “fresh start.” For some reason, when the clock strikes 12am on New Year’s Day, we immediately feel […]

Closing the Gap

Blessings. The word is overused and the items that get labeled as such are under appreciated. In America we are more blessed than anyone in the world if you call material goods blessings. The very definition of the word is God’s favor and protection. It is so easy to only see the physical things that […]

Blessed are the Poor in Spirit

I love smooth seas in life. Love them. The breeze is calm and scent-sweet, the sun is brilliant and merrily smiling over us, my life like a little vessel bobbing easily in the water. But that’s not life 24-7. Most of life is a dance in between the storm and the reprieve. Both are useful, […]

Faith Through Trials

Romans 5:3-5: 3 And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; 4 and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; 5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to […]

Thankful Through Tribulation

  Trials will come. It is enevitable. God never says you won’t have hard times, however, he does say he will be with us through it all! Good times and in bad! And he has given us everything we need in him to overcome the hard times. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says, “No temptation has overtaken you that […]

Hidden In My Heart

Grief has been a theme in my family for a while now. In the past year, my husband and I have lost all of our grandmothers. It has been very tough dealing with the loss of three wonderful ladies. The good news is that they are all with our Heavenly Father. But, it doesn’t make […]
