Lately

This last year and a half of waiting has taught me so much. Every day I see my hands loosening on the reigns of my life. This season of pressing and shaking has been so incredibly hard. I’ve cried more tears than I can ever remember. I’ve had days where my heart literally feels like it will crumble if I have to wait another day without seeing anything in my life shift.

Dear Guarded One,

I know the walls around your heart are tall and thick. They are impenetrable. You laid every brick and smoothed every piece of mortar yourself. Each brick you laid you felt the fear of pain dwindling. The higher the wall became the safer you were. You saw control re-entering your life. You saw your wounded heart hiding safely behind the walls you built to protect yourself.

Why Fall Is my Favorite

I sit on this ornate off white chair looking out an enormous second story window where trees and the grey sky are all I can see. As I watch the wind blow and leaves dance down to the ground I wonder if this is what it looks like when we die to ourself.

Permission to Hope Again

As I sat there tears now streaming down my flushed cheeks I began to realize that in this past year of hoping and not seeing any progress on my prayers I’d allowed disappointment to take root in my heart. I had let every unanswered prayer speak, “God doesn’t hear you.” rather than, “Not yet, my daughter”. With each hope crushed I’d allowed doubt that God even wants to answer my prayer to rise up.

How To Become A Runner

Helllllooooo! I'm not sure if you saw, but I RAN A 10K... If you've already seen it on social media or heard me talk about it, I'm sorry for the overload... You may be thinking, "Girl, you ran 6 miles, that's my warm up every day. Next blog post, please and thank you." And to you I'd say: First of all, you are goals, for real. And second, before you stop reading here is why I'm proud...

Fear Crushing Friday

God is love. Fact. True Love casts out all fear. Also fact. So why do I fear so often?? Why do I allow it to rule me? If I have God who casts out all fear living inside me, why do I allow fear to stop me from my callings? Why do I let fear win instead of love?

Why Aren't My Promises Fulfilled Yet?

We need to remember that God never, ever changes. If He fulfilled the promises for these people He will do the same for you because despite popular belief He loves you just as much as Noah or Abraham or Hannah or David or Mary. He longs to be a man of His word in your life and He longs to allow you a testimony of His goodness that moves mountains. All we have to do is trust Him when we don't see His promise immediately that He will do what He said because He's a promise keeper. Always has been and always will be.

Get Your Song Back

 I heard that Still Small voice again, but this time He said, "Stop singing and let Me sing over you." In my discouragement and my fear of not being good enough God began to speak truth over me. He began to tell me how I am called to these things I was feeling so discouraged in. He began to awaken dreams that had been dormant for years and He spoke new ones into my heart. He didn't just make me figure out my discouragement on my own, He took that discouragement and breathed courage with every word He sung over me.

My Workout Routine (No gym membership needed!)

Happy Saturday! I hope you had an amazing first few days of November. I'm over here hoping I'm not the only one who's already dreaming of the feast I will be having in only a few weeks... But if you're like me and dreaming of those buttery dinner rolls and delicious deserts you may be also thinking of all those pounds you'll be gaining on Thanksgiving.
