Keep in mind that if a stone blocking a tomb guarded with soldiers couldn’t stop Jesus from accomplishing what he set out to do that there is nothing that anyone can put in front of you that will keep Him from accomplishing what he wants to accomplish through you either!
Happy Resurrection Day Friends! After more than a year or COVID, economic challenges, societal unrest and political anxiety, this day provides a much needed peace. Today, because Christ got up, we can too. We can get up from the anxiety, stress and emotional unrest that we may have had over this year and become renewedContinue reading “HOPE”
Rise and Grind could cause us to prioritize our to-dos and accomplishments over connecting and remaining connected to our relationships. Rise and Shine keeps the focus on relationships, opportunities to share with others and generally speaking letting our little light shine.
Being good and doing good to others, sharing God’s message with others, and knowing that you are being a help, blessing and encouragement to someone, is good natural medicine. It is a natural mood lifter. No side effects just life affecting for both you and the recipients.
When we get up and get dressed, we tend to dress for the day — the weather and the activities, yet when we “put on the whole armor of God,” perhaps we are putting on our generic Godly armor. Reading a devotional or a planned reading is a great place to start but in the spirit of personal / spiritual refinement, perhaps a step further would be to look at what is on our plate for the day (assess the weather) and align our Bible reading and our prayers to cover us, protect us and build us up from the elements that we know are sure to hit.

I felt a bit weird sharing that my couple prayer time was not on track with my goals nor my 1 on 1 dates with each kid. I overthought about sharing that. What will theyContinue reading “Who Are We Beholden To?”
This week seems to have been all about getting through and believing in your awesomeness. This week I just wanted to remind myself, my friends and you all to take life one day at a time, deal with tomorrows stress tomorrow; and to punch that lie of not being enough in the gut because youContinue reading “Remembering”
Recently a friend mentioned struggling about not feeling that they were enough — enough to meet the needs of those around them, enough to live out God’s purpose for their life, and enough to accomplish their dreams. As I tried to encourage her, I heard me giving her the same advice that I give myself.Continue reading “More than Enough”
I love to learn. As annoying as it is to my kids, I find knowledge and facts interesting. It’s funny because this year my word is FOCUS and I meant that fully in the sense of the verb. I want to be focused (the adjective). I want to focus on completing the things I haveContinue reading “Verbs and Nouns”
