A few Sundays ago I was so excited to win a Starbuck gift card for some work I did at church. I was so excited because that very week was going to be the first in a decade I could actually go to Starbucks and sit inside all on my own and enjoy a … Continue reading Fierce Faith Friday: Set that blessing free!
I've been reading through the Bible this year at my own pace, which is quite slow. There is quite a bit of head scratching in the Bible, and lots of it happening in Genesis. I've (mostly) made peace with the fact that I don't have to understand or rationalize it all, but that doesn't stop … Continue reading Fierce Faith Friday: Jacob’s journey is my journey
To avoid missing out on our own purpose, fulfillment and upgrades we must first take stock of what we've been given.
Somewhere along the road, I apparently adopted the idea that being a married, adult woman with three kids meant I wasn't allowed to do things I like to do. I know that sounds crazy and younger me needed therapy. But I bent my will so hard for everyone else, I rarely did just what I wanted to do in my late 20s and earlier 30s.
Several years ago I started listening to things other than music when I was working out. Weird, I know. That year was tough, so I needed all the help I could get. My dear friend sent over a podcast and implored me to listen. I'm going to link it here because it will definitely help … Continue reading How to get more good stuff in your brain
One of my favorite songs to run to is Long Back Road by Electric Light Orchestra. Here's the words that hit me every time. You gotta get up in the morning take your heavy load And you gotta keep goin' down the long black road It reminds me that the way we do life is … Continue reading Fierce Faith Friday: Your heavy load
When you add the element of faith in to stepping outside of your comfort zone, it gets really interesting. While stepping outside of your comfort zone and doing something that requires complete and utter faith is scary, it's also gold. That's because on the flip side, your faith grows. It's like this awesome cycle of...awesomeness. Hear. Do. Survive & thrive. Faith grown. Then, the next time you hear, you have a little bit more faith to take that leap. Before you know it you're doing incredible things for GOD! You've gotten kind of used to living in faith rather than living in fear.
no one sat me down and showed me "how to word." I kind of learned little tidbits from here and from there. I'll tell you exactly how I do it though, because I know it's something others have a hard time with. Whether it's because of schedule, because of awkwardness or because of other reasons, getting in routine with God's word can be harder than it seems.
I love the Dixie Chicks. I know they’re controversial, but I fell for them well before all of that nonsense. They have this song called “Sin Wagon.” It inspires the name of this idea. The idea is simple: turn your car into a jukebox of positivity. Relegate all noise coming out of the car speakers … Continue reading Fierce Faith Friday: Praise Wagon
I am SO excited about this week's Fierce Faith Friiiiday! I got the inspiration for it on Wednesday, wrote it down then lost it. Guess what? The parable the idea comes from just happened to come up in my reading today. Oh God, you're so good like that. So, without further ado: What's in your sack? … Continue reading Fierce Faith Friday: What’s in your sack?
