Take a chill pill, you aren’t in control.

Isn’t it funny how out of sorts we allow ourselves to get by 9AM?! I’m talking, crazy town deluxe.

We let our minds snowball under the allusion that we are in control; therefore, we are robbed of the ability to live moment by moment because we try to figure out our entire day before it even starts.

STOP IT!!!

Has your heavenly Father not told you over and and over again–“Child, let it go. This is mine to carry. Will you give it over to me and walk forward?”

Travel lightly. Let Him do His job and you do yours. Rest easy in the fact that He has gone before you and your day is in His Hands.

I don’t care what you have going on, you CAN take a chill pill and sit back when you realize the maker of the Heavens and the Earth is a far better driver of your car than you are. Even you type A people (guilty as charged).

Got it? Drop ’em. Let your hands be free to welcome what’s to come, not to cling to what has been.

“Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.” -Matthew 11:29

It required some changing of habits and some rearranging of my schedule. It...

Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.

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...
