30 Days of Deeper (Day 29)

 For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.  We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this … Continue reading

30 Days of Deeper (Days 27-28)

Thursday night, I broke. I melted down into a puddle of tears talking to Brent. My breakdown was quite unexpected, if I am being honest. It wasn’t ONE thing that overwhelmed me to the point of crying, but just the chronic weight of all the things. And I snapped under the heaviness. Covid everything. Health … Continue reading

30 Days of Deeper (Day 26)

I admit that I haven’t yet acquired the absolute fullness that I’m pursuing, but I run with passion into his abundance so that I may reach the purpose that Jesus Christ has called me to fulfill and wants me to discover. 13 I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this;  however I do have … Continue reading

30 Days of Deeper (Day 25)

This morning, I am already in a tug of war. Upon waking, I am battling my thought life and hearing the enemy whisper lies to me. Trying so hard to convince me that I am not a good enough mom. Not a good enough friend. Not a good enough wife. Not a good enough Christian. … Continue reading

30 Days of Deeper (Day 22)

I have discovered this principle of life – that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. I love God’s law with all my heart. But there is another power within that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is … Continue reading

30 Days of Deeper (Days 20&21)

Yesterday, I felt stuck. As if I keep going round and round in the same spot… not moving forward. Not going backwards. Just round and round and round. Coming back and back again to the Lord with the same issue. To a goal-oriented person who methodically moves from point A to point B in all areas … Continue reading

30 Days of Deeper (Day 19)

“Forget about what’s happened;     don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.     It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert,     rivers in the badlands.” Isaiah 43:19 I could not sleep last night. I tossed. I turned. And about … Continue reading

In the midst of all that has happened in our world since Covid and later the racial injustice surrounding us, the Lord has continually brought me back to this passage. Isaiah 58.
