Everlasting Kingdom

Some days I go through the day and feel surprised and confused at the world around me. I feel out of touch about the latest shows, trends and fads. Do you ever feel that way? I am trying to keep my eyes focused on God. I am trying to get better and improve myself. I… Continue reading Everlasting Kingdom

God is Sovereign

What does the word sovereign mean? It means to have supreme power. God has supreme power over the universe. God decides. Not you. Not me. Only one person determines the outcome. God. Our God in heaven can do whatever he pleases. But our God is in heaven; He does whatever He pleases. --Psalm 115:3 (NKJV).… Continue reading God is Sovereign

Seasons of Life

I often hear people talking about their season of life. My season of life cuddling my babies, bottles and sleepless nights has passed. In this season of my life, my kids are not toddlers anymore, yet they are not in double digits yet. In the season of my life, I am starting to deal with… Continue reading Seasons of Life

Trusting God With the Outcome

This morning at church, the message was to trust God with the outcome. I really needed to hear this today. Two months ago, I found out that my mom has a brain tumor. She has stage 4 cancer. Her condition is declining. I have been so worried about my mom's upcoming radiation and chemo treatment,… Continue reading Trusting God With the Outcome

God Knows Our Hearts

Sometimes, I just want God to fix the things that I think are broken in my life. I am not looking at it the right way.  I need to surrender to the Lord and praise everything that he does in my life, even if its not what I thought I wanted. The Lord can answer… Continue reading God Knows Our Hearts

There Is No Need For An Explanation

Yesterday at church, we read Chapter 3 in the book of Daniel. Our pastor did a great job explaining it. Its an amazing story. Daniel's friends get thrown in a fiery furnace and come out unharmed. Not one hair of their heads was singed. It was a miracle. I was fascinated with their attitudes before… Continue reading There Is No Need For An Explanation

God Knows What Lies In The Darkness

Have you ever looked at your life and just felt overwhelmed? I feel that way today. I spent the morning trying to find a solution, trying to will myself out of my problems. It didn't work. It just made me feel, well, overwhelmed. Instead, I should have been praying to God. I should have gone… Continue reading God Knows What Lies In The Darkness

Day 15: Thanking God For His Mercy

My mom had surgery yesterday. They removed 78% of the tumor from her brain. It went well. We were able to see her last night. She was smiling and talking. She said that she felt so much better and wondered how long she had the tumor. Out of all the possible outcomes, this was a… Continue reading Day 15: Thanking God For His Mercy

God Can Turn Around The Worst Situation And Use It For His Glory

Do you ever wonder why you have to walk through difficult times? It sure would be easier if God just stopped the situation, before it was all uncomfortable and awkward. It can be excruciating to go through a difficult time. You desperately want to control the outcome, but you cannot control it. Difficult times are… Continue reading God Can Turn Around The Worst Situation And Use It For His Glory

Not Qualified, Yet Still Chosen

I have been reading about Saul and his conversion over the past few days. I have been wondering why God calls such unqualified people to serve him.  "God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong". You may feel unqualified… Continue reading Not Qualified, Yet Still Chosen
