You know what I love about the Lord?

He misses NOTHING.

Like, nothing at all! He is King of details. As if the fact that He created spiders to not be able to fly didn’t give it away, I can see it in every area of my life.

Have you ever had a time where the stars align perfectly with a particular situation and you just look up and think, “I see You up there!”?

Or where you are having a rough day and the lord whispers “I love you” in the version of something that speaks to you? Like a little nudge that lets you know He hears you?

It Is in these moments that we are reminded that while our God is one of majesty and wonder and supernatural strength, He is also a God who consistently finds the time throughout each one of His children’s days to remind them that He is near. That while we may feel allusive or ambiguous to even ourselves, He knows us so perfectly and completely and He STILL desires an intimate relationship with us.

Isn’t that insane? I sure wouldn’t wanna hang out with me after seeing inside this tangled spider web of an emotional rollercoaster Hot MESS I got going on inside.

Lord– thank You!

Thank You that nothing is hidden from you.

Thank you that you know what consumes my mind and keeps me up at night. Thank you that you know what makes me smile ear to ear and brings back the butterflies from middle school.

Thank You for always speaking and intervening at the right time, even when I say I would prefer otherwise, I truly know Your way is better.

Thank You for your version of my puzzle, for every piece that I’ve seen thus far and every piece that is to come– all have been woven with love and grace through the Potters hands and because of THAT, I am never fearful of the future.

Thank You that you knew the human mind enough to know how much we over analyze, criticize and look into details and YOU have seen, tasted, listened, touched and experienced it all.

Let us trust How big you are while also knowing how intricate and particular Your plan is.

Precise. Always on time. Wondrous with details. Perfect in every way. Sovereign.

Magical. You’re a magician, the King of making something out of nothing and for that, we owe you everything.

Praise God that we don’t know everything and Praise God that You do! You can handle forever and right now. Remind us we can only handle right now if we remember You hold our forever.

Happy Hump Day, Friends!

Short and sweet— whatcha been doing this morning? Have you developed a healthy routine when your mind wakes up and your feet hit the floor that will ensure a peaceful and productive rest of your day? I have always known how important it is to start your day in ways that provide energy, strength, and focus for the hours that follow…but it felt so difficult. It required some changing of habits and some rearranging of my schedule. It...

Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.
Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.

May 30, 2018

I used to believe that guilt was holy in a way. It showed that I knew what Jesus was asking of me in a moment or that I knew something I should’ve done or been, and I regretted not being/seeing/doing that. Maybe it’s guilt over not being the best daughter you can be. Or brother, wife, husband, friend, sister, etc. Maybe it’s those words you said about a coworker in the heat of the moment that you didn’t...

I remember sitting in a conference a couple years ago and the speaker said, “Tell yourself out loud! Speak it over yourself but give it volume!” And I’m thinking, “I have never done that, consistently at least.” I was also thinking, “Is that like a true difference-maker? The whole giving it volume, making sure your own ears hear it thing?” Well, joke’s on me because I have noticed, over the big and the small things, that when I...
