a·bun·dance: A very large quantity of something. I’m not the most gifted person on the planet—but I do have a “very particular set of skills” and God-given talents that I do pretty darn well. We all do. We all have talents, abilities, and gifts from God that we do pretty well. And along those lines […]

“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2) I sat at my desk and rubbed my temples, my heart heavy with burdens. Not mine, but those around me. So many with devastating diagnosis, loss, disappointment, despair and troubles. Carrying their burdens is what God desires. Pray […]

I had a lot of meltdowns during my mommy years—and they left me feeling wretched. I didn’t want to be cranky, critical, and short-tempered but too often, I was. And what did I do? I hid from God. I told myself that I was a failure as a Christian, a failure as a mother, and […]

God is in control of the details! I’ve “known” that and even spoken of it often from the platform. But too easily in my day-to-day life I forget that in my current monumental challenges that “God has got this”. Much of America experienced major storms in the past few weeks, including my city in Texas. […]

God doesn’t promise a day without problems, or moments without trials, but aligned with Him, He promises a satisfied soul. On one very hot summer day, my keyboard began to feel sticky. The air conditioner decided to stop working. And, in the Florida summer heat, my energy was melting into drops of worry. What if […]

It’s a perfectly sunny, almost-spring day and I’m walking through my cute little home… and I’m worrying. Worrying about the fact that we should really have our roof replaced this summer. And how much is that going to cost? This went on for awhile, until I remembered that worry sucks (the joy out of life) […]

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. Hebrews 12:1 This verse makes me […]

“Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.” Mark 5:19 After calming the storm, a demon possessed man ran to Jesus on the shore. Jesus freed the man from the demons […]

I spoke recently to a friend who is super-efficient, incredibly capable, and the rock on which her boss relies. But as we talked, she confessed to being motivated by guilt thinking, I should do this. I must do that. If I don’t, then who will—and then what? If I’m serving the Lord then I have to say […]

We have all loved someone who is breaking our heart. Being sucker punched by a loved one is exactly how that feels. The very ones we would take a bullet for can sometimes pull the trigger. We’ve all been there. The feeling is indescribable. The pain is so deep we cannot seem to overcome it. […]

“Do not be discouraged.” Easier said than done, right? Especially when someone squashes your dream. Or questions your ability. Or criticizes your work. Or has more success than you do. Or when failure knocks you right up the side of the head. It doesn’t take much to make us feel the sting of discouragement. A […]
