God Is Not Working on Your Flaws

God Is Not Working on Your Flaws

When you looked in the mirror this morning, what did you see? A person with shortcomings and rough edges? Someone who has a loooong way to go before she measures up? A gal who struggles most days with feeling “not enough?”

You’re not alone, my friend. Most Christian women struggle with the “not enough” epidemic. Me too — for much of my life.

The Struggle Is Real

The Struggle Is Real

Do you ever struggle with doubt and wonder where God is? Wonder if He sees, if He knows what’s going on in your life?

The other night I had a fight with doubt.

If I were a meteorologist, I’d tell you it felt like a category 1 hurricane, with some mild flooding, and an impressive tsunami of emotion to top things off. The next morning the aftermath nipped at my heels, trying to pull me back down into the fears.

What We Need More of in 2018

What We Need More of in 2018

Isn’t it interesting how words come to mean something?

Like “Babe,” for instance. When I was little it meant a tiny infant. When the movie came out, it meant a pig. And when I got married and heard it from my hubby’s lips, it meant me!

Somewhere along the way “grace” has gotten a reputation for being soft, fluffy, and comfortable. Kind of like being snuggled by so many adorable puppies.

Experiencing the Joy of Receiving

Experiencing the Joy of Receiving

December is flying past us. By now we’re all surrounded with twinkle lights and gift lists, Christmas carols and flurry, holiday goodies and party plans.

But sometimes in the busiest seasons our Heavenly Poppa reaches down and whispers something special.

For me it’s the word, “receive.”

Like a soft whisper on the wind, this word follows me lately.

When I first sensed it, I thought, “That’s odd. This is the season for giving, isn’t it?”

“Receive” can seem like a selfish word — like a little child, overly excited about opening her own presents, never giving a thought to anyone else. For us responsible, committed adults, the word, “give”, is the true mantra of Christmas. Give presents. Give cheer. Give goodies. Give love. Give comfort and joy.

I mean, isn’t that what Jesus did when He came to earth — gave of Himself? Isn’t that the very thing we now celebrate ‘mid the flurry and frost? Continue reading →

When Your Faith is Tired of Hitting the Brick Wall

When Your Faith is Tired of Hitting the Brick Wall

Ever have those moments where you’re stumped?

You’ve been working a problem, trying to fix a relationship, or praying for a difficult situation for a while now. But instead of finding a solution, it feels like you’re stuck in a toy car that’s driving into the same brick wall over and over.

With each jarring impact you find yourself asking,

Why . . . [UFF!]

. . . is this . . . [ERRRG!]

so . . .  HARD? [OW!]

I’ve been facing one of those situations recently. And it bugs me. Continue reading →
