Recognize. | Weakness. (Part 1)

Do you have a weakness? I hate to break it to you, but it's safe to say we're all a flawed bunch of humans. What might that be for you today? Yes today. Heck, it can even change moment-to-moment. Quite uplifting so far, I know, but stay with me. These words can serve as leverage … Continue reading Recognize. | Weakness. (Part 1)

Is it God’s will or my will? [Questions of a new Believer]

"You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God."

3am Writing / Romans 5-8 Inspo.

This upcoming year will go by fast.   Remember to rest in the identity you have in Christ. Not of yourself.   Lose yourself in His regard, finding joy in the trials and challenges, remembering that in all things that feel like death, you are also burying those things in Christ's death. Remembering how they are to … Continue reading 3am Writing / Romans 5-8 Inspo.

His Fulfillment, Not Mine

The other day, a family member told me I tend to enable the dysfunction in others. I recognize how naturally this empathetic curse can flow from me. Balancing a want to see others healed, with a need for more genuine compassion, I ask God to open my heart. O God, you are my God; earnestly … Continue reading His Fulfillment, Not Mine

To Gather Nectar

I recently met with a remarkable academic/career counselor at my college. She put her heart into her work and surprised me with how much she cared for the students she came in contact with.

Before & After me

"I will go before you and level the uneven places; I will shatter the bronze doors and cut the iron bars in two.” (Isaiah 45:2). In the last 2 years, I’ve done a lot of searching.
