Life Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Grief and loss can gush like water and run for days, weeks, even years --finding routes into the tiniest cracks and crevices of our innermost being.  Sometimes the seed of suffering and loss gets lodged between a rock and a hard place and forces it to crack open until the cracking and the spilling make you… Continue reading Life Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Morning Meditations {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

I had barely opened my eyes this morning and words from  Psalm 1 were coming to my mind with incredible clarity. Since I haven't read those verses in a long time and clarity that early in the morning would be considered near-miraculous,  I've learned to consider these as Holy Spirit moments.

The Path of Life {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

During my college days, my sister encouraged me to find a life's verse in God's word...a verse to hold on to that would be an anchor for the days ahead.  Psalm 16:11 became the frame in which the situations of life could be captured and viewed. #WalkingitoutwithJesus has taken me down many paths in the last… Continue reading The Path of Life {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

Words of Life {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

When I was a little girl, we used to sing a simple hymn,  “Wonderful Words of Life,” in our Sunday School class.  I can still see my teacher, Miss Barbara Benson, holding up visuals for the songs we sang and afterward watching with wide-eyed wonder as she shared the  Bible story lessons using flannel graph… Continue reading Words of Life {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}
