You never walk alone

THIS. This. Do you know this to be true?

Think about whatever it is that may be on your mind today or something you’ve been struggling with– Do you think your emotions about that would be different if you handled it thinking- “Jesus, how will we walk through this together?”

You see, I am convinced that loneliness is satan’s favorite word and that isolation is his primary tactic. He knows that if he can convince us that we are going through this life alone, we will be far more inclined to believe his lies.

We will accept the burdens on our back and forget to take them to the cross.

We will evaluate based on our own strength and not that of our Father’s.

We will fear the future because we will forget whose hand we are holding.

Wherever you are, whatever you do, wherever you’ve been, and however you got there, you do not walk alone. Not a single step.

The dark is a lot less scary when you’re grasping the hand of a friend, isn’t it? And how about when that friend is the Savior of the world? Does your fear still cripple you? Probably not.

So whether you have to physically hold your Bible and let that represent His hand or whether you have to stop every hour and remind yourself of this truth, do it. You’re never alone my friend!!! How insanely awesome and comforting and thoughtful is our Jesus?

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” -Isaiah 41:10

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...
