Going to the Source

Do you ever find yourself reading a book or watching a movie and everything is going along great and then there is some big misunderstanding and everything falls apart? I find myself yelling at the TV screen….”Just go ask them!” Alas! No one ever does and there is a whole chapter of turmoil because of it.  I have saved myself TONS of drama and anxiety in my life by following a very simple rule. GO TO THE SOURCE. You may How COVID has affected us

Armrests

Do you have good armrests? You may be thinking…in my car? In a movie theater? On my recliner? I’m referring to some Moses armrests.  In Exodus, Moses was dealing with some grumpy Israelites. They were thirsty. So he took them to find water, but while trying to get water they were attacked by the Amalekites. Moses sent Joshua to lead the Israelites into battle and remained on a hill with his staff in his hands, praying and crying out to How COVID has affected us

Interactive Article

Ok friends! This is an interactive article! You will need a stopwatch or timer of some sort and you will need some time to pray. I’ve done “guided prayers” a few times and they can be very powerful and I love how intentional they are. They are helpful when I’ve set aside an hour of prayer or when I’ve been asked to pray for an hour. (This won’t be an hour although if you would like to extend your times How COVID has affected us

Judgy McJudgerson

The easiest way to lose my respect is to hear someone judging someone else. I will often become super defensive of the person being judged when this occurs. I’d like to pretend it’s because I’m a really good person but I know the truth. It’s because I fear judgment from God. Matthew 7:1-5 has always resonated with me.  “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with How COVID has affected us

Don’t Judge Someone Else’s Journey

It is so hard sometimes to not be judgmental. We may look at someone else’s choices and wonder why on earth they would do what they do. The truth is we have not walked in their shoes. Even if we have had the same experience, it will be different from person to person.   A few days ago I hiked with my sister on the north country trail. We hiked around 50 miles total last year and I really enjoyed it. How COVID has affected us

“C’mon Everybody! Let’s NOT do the Twist”

C’mon everybody! Let’s do the Twist! If you are like me, when you hear the beginning of this song, you run for the dance floor. I was listening to this song today and thinking about the lyrics. There aren’t many. “You’re Daddy’s sleeping, and your Momma ain’t around.” “we’re gonna twist and twist and twist till we tear the house down.” It made me start thinking about how people “twist” the Word of God. They twist and twist and twist How COVID has affected us

What’s Next?

Do you ever sit around and think about what’s next? I have a list in my head of everything that is next. I have things that I’m preparing for work, Things that need to be done for my family, things that I’m looking forward to with friends, and upcoming obligations. They are all swirling around inside of my head. Sometimes it helps to write them out, sometimes it helps to put them on a physical calendar…but they are still up How COVID has affected us

Warnings

How’s your security? In the last week, I’ve been locked out of my email account and had my debit card # stolen. It’s frustrating! There are safe walls in place for these things but sometimes things fall through the cracks.  My email was frustrating because everywhere I turned to get it back I hit a brick wall. I couldn’t figure out what happened or how to fix it. I wonder if this is how the people in the Bible felt How COVID has affected us

Distractions

Distractions. How many of you deal with distractions during the day? I have found that I am easily distracted. A radio playing, a conversation in the next room, the television in the background…all of these things can get me off task and distracted.  These may all sound like silly little things that happen throughout our day but distractions can be much bigger than this and can distract or derail us from the most important task that we’ve been given.  Romans How COVID has affected us

Burdens

Are you carrying around heavy burdens? Do you stress about things that are out of your control? We are told explicitly over and over in the bible not to do that…Do you know who struggles with obedience in that??? ME! I know better! I’m not sure why my little human brain can’t remember that..but I believe it is pride. I think that I can fix things. That I can carry burdens for others…in short I think I can do what How COVID has affected us
