You are a valuable treasure! 

​The Lord your God has chosen you to be His own special treasure.  Deuteronomy 14:2 You are God’s special treasure. Treasure! Valuable, worthy, important, and treasured. Enough with the “I am not enough”. That is a lie that must be crushed with truth. Truth that you are enough. Just as you are. Just simply you.…

Keep going…there is light up ahead. 

Ever feel like giving up? Do you sometimes believe the only option  left is throwing in the towel, and running backwards to the safety of the dark? The temptation to give up is sometimes strongest right before breakthrough. Resist these moments with everything you have. Speak truth over yourself. You are not going backwards, you…

Peace and Clarity 

For many years now my prayer has been the same prayer, peace and clarity. Lord, clarify my next step and give me peace to know I am walking where You want these feet to go.  I will continue to pray that prayer. It’s simple, yet gives the Lord the power to work in my life.…

Letting go…

Hard, hard, hard.  People throw that advice around so easily and with such enthusiasm like they are saying something profound….”Just let it go.”  Well if it were that easy, wouldn’t we just do it?  But in reality letting go of anything that has served us in some way is difficult.

Yes, they are a tool and a weapon of darkness and they come to take away.  Addictions promise so much, yet they never deliver what’s promised. Never. Ever does…

Good morning Jesus!

Thank you for this beautiful, amazing day to draw near to You. To praise You. To be held by You. To lift up my arms and voice in praise to You. To allow Your arms to hold me in safety and grace. To lean in a little closer. To carve out space and time just…

Faking it for others…

Have you ever found yourself becoming something or someone you’re not to save a relationship? Many times this happens slowly and over time, and we don’t notice the warning signs until we have given up special aspects of our identity and replaced them with the desires that someone else has for us.
