Stilled and Comforted… #courage

be still happy sundayFor our present troubles are quite small and wont last very long. 

Yet they produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever. 

So we don’t look at the troubles we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen.

For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever…”

Psalm 6:25


May your heart be stilled and comforted today…

He delights in every detail of their lives…

Though they stumble, the will not fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand…”

Psalm 37:23-24

This just makes my heart swell with pure delight …

Though I stumble, I will not fall… for the Lord is holding my hand.

Oh, Lord, How amazing and wonderful You are…

I believe You are directing my steps..

I believe You delight in my life.

Such beauty and honor escapes me.

That I have this beautiful picture of You, My God. My King, ever so gently, yet securely; holding my hand fills me with such peace…

How I praise Your Holy Name, and thank You for Your constant love and faithfulness…

I am so overjoyed that You are a helicopter parent :)

Help me to be a source of hope, and encouragement for those whose hearts are weary…

You have saved me… and I am so very thankful.

“Come near to God, and He will come near to you..”

James 4:8

Tainted Love… #love

tainted love” If I could speak in any language in heaven or on earth but didn’t love others, I would only be making meaningless noise like  loud gong or a clanging cymbal.

If I had the gift of prophesy, and if I knew all the mysteries of the future and knew everything about everything, but didn’t love others, what good would I be?

And if I had the gift of faith so that I could speak to a mountain and make it move, without love, I would be no good to anybody.

If I gave everything to the poor and sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would be of no value whatsoever..”

1 Corinthians 13: 1-3

Each and everyone of those words speaks so tenderly…

When we are stripped down to the inner most part of our hearts…

Is there love?

Oh, Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for today..

Thank You for Your tender love that draws me close…

How I pray for a softened heart to hear Your words, An open heart to accept Your kindness…

And a willingness to be the woman You know I can be..

To love in the quietness of my heart…

That my life wouldn’t be a loud gong, or  a clanging cymbal.

Forgive my pridefullness… the thoughts that turn my eyes away from Your love, and taint my heart…

In the quietness of my soul, I see Your beauty…

That is a beautiful.. beautiful place.

Help me to walk in the Sunshine…

Believing In Your words of goodness and grace…

For there is where I find my strength..

I love You, Jesus,

In Your Name, I pray,


Live in Love,


“There are three things that will remain faith,  hope and love, and the greatest of these is love..”

1 Corinthians 13:13

Beyond Faithful… #soverythankful

beyond faithful blog“Your unfailing love, O lord, is as vast as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds….”

Oh, Lord, how I thank You for Your faithfulness to this sinners heart… You reached beyond the clouds, and covered me with Your love…

“Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, Your justice like the ocean depths.”

By Your righteousness You secured my heart.. You granted me strength, hope and healing… Who can understand the depths of Your ways…

“You care for people and animals alike,

O Lord.

How precious is your unfailing love,”

Your sweetness overwhelms me… Your love for all living things so beautiful…

“O God!

All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of Your wings..”

How I thank You for concealing me in the shelter of Your wings…

You are my safety and refuge…

Psalm 36:5-7

I love You so much Jesus,

In Your Name, I pray,


Live in Love,


“Whoever pursues Godliness and unfailing love will find life, godliness, and honor…”

Proverbs 21:21

Hope Lives… #hope

Hope livesI woke up feeling discouraged…

Feeling that I want to be doing more.

Wanting to live my life to the fullest…

Not really sure what that looks like.

“Why are you downcast, O my soul?  Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my savior and my God…”

Psalm 42: 5

Dear, Heavenly Father, Good Morning…

I come before You, On bended knee, not waning to miss Your  gentle call  in my life.

Praying You would cleanse me of myself, my desires, my ideas… and fill me with Your wisdom, love and direction…

Not too sure when to push… feeling like I need to open my heart, and wait on Your direction…

I put my hope.

My trust in You…

“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.  It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf…”

Hebrews 6: 19

Oh, Lord, You are my strength.

“Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, the maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them – the Lord who remains faithful forever..”

Psalm 146: 5-6

I am relying on Your faithfulness, My Lord and my Redeemer…

In Jesus Name,

I pray,


Live in Love,


“God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”

2 Corinthians 9:8

God is able…

Yay, God :)


Stirred. Not Shaken… #trust

stirred not shaken blog“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. 

In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight…”

Proverbs 3:5


It can make you feel so vulnerable, can’t it?

People have broken our trust…

We have broken trust…

That hurts :/

The only true and pure place to put our trust is in God’s love for us…

In my struggle for trust, I am learning that God is trustworthy.

He is my peace.

My safe place.

When I feel overwhelmed in making decisions, or consumed by worry, He is there to provide a gentle whisper of hope, and for that I am so grateful…

The freedom I get from wholeheartedly putting my trust in God alone is priceless..


But priceless…

Not relying on someone, something, or even my own self is hard…

But it is the freedom to live.

I am learning  that putting my trust in people, or things; can be selfish, and even harmful..

Putting unrealistic expectations on others to make us happy, or putting pressure  on ourselves to make things happen, can take our  focus off of God’s love and plan for our lives…

We start over thinking or manipulating… uggg!

That’s a mess!!

“For the word of the Lord holds true,

and everything He does is worthy of our trust.

He loves whatever is just and good, and His unfailing love fills the earth…”

Psalm 33:4

Oh, Dear Lord,

Good Morning,

Keeping my eyes on You.

Knowing, and believing that Your word holds true, and everything You do is worthy of my trust relieves my heart so much.

I come before You, thanking You for such goodness and unfailing love…

While I can’t control the situations around my life, I can find my peace in Your great love.

And that is enough…

I give You my heart, please fill me with peace as I trust that You are making my path straight.

I love You,

In Jesus Name,


Live in Love,


“But the Lord’s plans stand firm forever; His intentions can never be shaken..”

Psalm 33:11

Awesome, right!!!

I Will Trust… #trust

i will trust blog“The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.  I will advise you and watch over you…”

Psalm 32:8

Oh, Dear Lord, the waiting is the hardest part..

As I come before You this beautiful and new day, how I pray for Your strength to fill my soul.

I open my hands in need of Your power, wisdom and guidance.

I will trust that You are guiding my path.

I will trust that You are advising me…

“For You are my hiding place; You protect me from trouble.

You surround me with songs of victory…”

Psalm 32: 7


I will trust that You are surrounding me with songs of victory…

I love You,

In Jesus Name,


Live in Love,
