breathe

“Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
Sometimes God says, “Breathe.”
Pause.
Stop doing. Stop with the self-reliance. Give yourself a rest.
Take a Sabbath.
Take a walk.
Put your phone away and your calendar and your e-mail inbox. We deceive ourselves into thinking [...]

There is no person on this planet, no authority, no government, no circumstance bearing its weight upon you that can keep God from bringing your life calling to its destiny.
God’s plan for you will be accomplished.
The enemy might try to hijack it, but God wins. All.the.time.
One of my favorite statements made by Jesus in the [...]

your joy is coming

“The nights of crying your eyes out give way to days of laughter.” Psalm 30:5, The Message

Your joy is coming.
Most of us have journeyed through what might be called a wilderness season, or personal desert, a time of grieving, or a period of brokenness. There are a lot of various terms for personal/internal suffering.
While the [...]

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. 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 [...]

where can i go?

“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your [...]

this journey of today

the legacy that you will leave

Leaving.
We all leave at some point in our lives.
We leave a job. We leave a career. We leave a home. We leave a school. We leave an activity. We leave a group. We leave a grade level. We leave an identity.
It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do…eventually, we all leave.

follow the way of love

I really, really hate to admit this, but there have been times when people get under my skin. Please forgive me. But it is true.
I get irritated, frustrated and annoyed. Bent out of shape, angry and drained.  Offended and hurt, perplexed by their behavior. It festers deep under the skin like an itch that can’t [...]

it is well

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.” Philippians 4:8

respect the path of grief

Grieving is a funny thing.
It’s amazing how you can be rolling along, smelling roses and such, and all of a sudden…BAM…it hits you. It comes out of nowhere, this longing for the old normal, and how unsteady you feel in the new normal. Maybe it’s a conversation with a friend or colleague, or maybe you’re [...]
