Waiting On A Miracle

Sarah’s story began with excitement, adventure, and an incredible promise from God Himself. One day she would bear a child (Genesis 15:4-5) A child that would bring joy to her and her husband and be the first of the many descendants to come. Her future was full of so much hope. She married Abraham, a…

“Where I should be by now”

By now I should be…raising three children in my own house with my husband next to me. By now I should be… traveling the world and fulfilling my high school dreams. By now I should be… higher up in the chain in the world of business and using that fancy degree. By now I should…

“God is holding out on me”

Can I be honest about something today? Sometimes I just don’t get God. I don’t get Him because He is Almighty and Sovereign. He has the power to do absolutely anything in the world. He can answer the prayer you have been praying for years in a millisecond and yet He doesn’t. He deliberately chooses…

Waiting on my love story

I know this seems old-fashion and outdated in today’s culture. And quite honestly, the idea of it scares me just a bit. But with much prayer and thought I have finally made my decision. I am going to have a prearranged marriage. Before you think I have fallen off the deep end let me explain…

When God says “Not Yet”

You had it all planned out perfectly from when you were a young teen. Where you would live, what you would do, who you would be. The moment you stepped off the podium of your college graduation you were ready to face the real world. To accomplish your dreams. To travel the world. To start…

Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone

It was faith that brought Isaac into Abraham’s arms. Faith that kept Peter up when he walked on water. Faith that helped Moses lead the Israelites across the Red Sea. Faith that healed the blind man calling out to Jesus and faith that restored the health of the bleeding women. Faith that caused the walls…

When Nothing Seems To Be Happening

Sometimes… I don’t think God knows what He’s doing. I would never say it out loud. I would never admit to it. But deep down inside I believe it. How do I know? It’s quite simple – when things don’t work out according to my perfect little plan I try to “fix” the situation and…

Waiting for a reason

Jesus could have come and healed Lazarus when he was still alive. Instead, He waited to raise him from the dead when he was already in his grave. God could have made David become king the day after he was anointed. Instead, He waited 15 years to rise to the throne, many of those years…

Jesus shows up on time… always.

Everyone already cried their tears. Said their good-bye’s. Faced their fears. Lazarus was lying in his tomb. Wrapped up in cloth. Lifeless. Mary and Martha were discouraged. All hope was lost. Their brother was gone, for good. They had called on Jesus. And He came. But He came too late. Too late to heal Lazarus.…

When life doesn’t go like you planned

Last week I came across one of my old journals lying on my bed. I’m not sure how it got there… (I hope my little sister wasn’t reading it) 😉 So of course, I decided to pick it up and read a few pages. Flipping through those first couple of pages and skimming through what…

Hearts, roses, n’ chocolates day… ♥

Today is my favorite holiday of the year… after Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Martin Luther King’s Day, Labor Day, President’s Day, Veteran’s Day, Columbus Day… well, you get the point. 😉 I’m sure if I wasn’t single at the moment and had roses and chocolates sitting on my desk from someone “special” I would think otherwise.…
