I don't want to turn into a pillar of salt like Lots' wife. I guess sometimes I feel like I am, though. When life just doesn't seem to be going according to plan, or when I flee from sin but maybe I look back thinking even that may have been a mistake, that's when I know I am being a pillar of salt. One commentary I read said that Lots' wife turns into a pillar of salt because she turned back and secretly in her heart she longed for what she left behind. It had become her ... View the Post
Devotionals on Faith
It's difficult to walk through this life when we are always doubting God. Doubting His grace, sovereignty, and even His goodness. But then again, our doubt can also make us feel guilty. In these devotionals I share my personal faith journey with you. I will be completely honest with you, I still have to wrestle my doubts on a daily basis. However, I have decided that if I can trust God with my salvation then I can trust Him with my day to day living, and I am going to do everything unto the Lord and have confidence in all that I do that brings glory to Him.
Having faith in someone is difficult when they have betrayed your trust before. But sometimes faith is difficult even when someone hasn't betrayed your trust. Take Adam and Eve, all they had to do in the garden was to believe and have faith in God that what He said was true. If they had done that then they would have just trusted God when He said not to eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. You see they didn't have enough faith to fight off the deception that came ... View the Post
So often we see the big picture and we hardly ever see the small moments leading up to that big picture. I’ve written before about counting the costs and knowing that every big moment has been preceded by a lot of small moments. But taking that a little bit further we need to understand that not only are our daily disciplines small & significant, but so are our words. So often we look at the disappointments and offenses in our life, I am beginning to think these big moments of pain ... View the Post
Whenever I am working on, or trying something new I often have doubts that go through my head and I often wonder if it’s “going to work” or if it is “good enough.” When I first began writing there was this process of wondering if I was a good enough writer, is this what I am even supposed to be doing, or is anyone going to even read what I write. Another one of my worries: is this time I am investing into this project even worth it. My husband is really good ... View the Post
I have recently found myself on a side of the fence that I never thought I’d actually be on. When I say “on a side of a fence” I am typically talking about when the fence is the dividing line and I feel I am put into a position to take a side. The thing is, God’s word has been convicting me again in my walk. I thought I already knew what my convictions were, but it’s amazing how our understanding of God’s word can grow and mature over time. When the world changes, and we are forced to ask ...

The month of July I had taken off to spend time with family and to just listen to Holy Spirit speak to my heart. Everyday I wrote down what the Lord was speaking to my heart into the back of my journal. It seems He truly started the first day of July. The thing is, life has been complicated lately. It has been changing so much and so quickly. I thought I could stand my ground without getting shaky in the knees, I was confident (for the most part) in my choices and ... View the Post
