    Remind Me…

    “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end;  they are new every morning;  great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23  One of the biggest lies that I tell myself is, “I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.” Then later that day, or week, I will remember that I said I wouldn’t need to write it down, but had forgotten what it was. Maybe you can relate… I am so guilty of being caught up in the moment when God meets me in the middle of my mess. I think I will remember that moment 10 years from now because, in that moment, it is so profound, and He feels so near. Sometimes, it is few months, or even just a few days later, I don’t don’t remember what all that moment held. I don’t remember any details, only that He was there. I think we, at

    The Color Purple

    “21 She is not afraid of snow for her household, For all her household is clothed with scarlet. 22 She makes tapestry for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple.” (NKJV) Proverbs 31: 21-22 Proverbs 31 is fairly well-known to us as it references what a woman who fears the Lord looks like. It paints a portrait of what we read and see as the perfect godly woman that we could ever aspire to be! Reading Proverbs 31 could even be overwhelming because we desire so much to be that woman who fears the Lord; we desire to be that godly woman. It can be easy to forget as we read that this passage is not a check list, but rather an example of the fruit which grows out of having a fear of the Lord. The Proverbs 31 woman is not meant to be this over-bearing goal, and to be that kind of a woman of

    Rock of Ages

    I woke up this morning with an old hymn going through my head. You may or may not be familiar with it – Rock of Ages. Just the familiar tune reminded me of when I was young and my siblings and I would crowd on the couch with my mother and we would sing a few hymns, pray, and read the Bible together. Those were the simple days, (at least they were for me,) where the greatest concerns were who got the blue dum-dum when we went through the bank drive-through, or whose turn it was to have a sleep over at Nana and Pap’s house. These days my concerns are greater (in my eyes) than the ones I had as a child. It seems that I have a long to-do list with a short amount of time. And that may be true, but even more-so, His grace is sufficient and the

    Losing to Gain: Through the Prison to the Promise

    “22 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed Because His compassions fail not, 23 They are new every morning; Great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 (NKJV) I’ve heard it said that, “There are a thousand things that God is doing  every time something painful happens to you. Most of these you do not know or understand, just as Job, Joseph, and Esther did not know what God was doing in their losses.” What would have happened if they didn’t recognize the brand new mercies of God in the midst of their pain and in the things that they didn’t understand as to why they were happening in their lives. What if Job in losing everything didn’t trust in the mercies of God? Would he have been blessed? What if Joseph, in the hurt of being sold by his brothers into slavery, falsely accused by his master’s wife, and thrown into prison, held onto

    “She Smiles At the Future…”

    “Strength and honor are her clothing; she shall rejoice in time to come.” (NKJV)  Proverbs 31:25 Proverbs 31 is a passage that many of us are familiar with. When I read it, I feel like I can almost picture this woman in my head. And at times, I have somebody in mind when I read these verses. When I read verse 25, I could see in front of me a woman sitting tall with a quiet strength and confidence. She has the posture of one who is very well-respected and you can tell she carries wisdom before she even speaks a word. Perhaps you have someone in mind as well. It has come to my attention that this verse does not mean what we think it does. It may seem very forthright, however, when you look deeper, you see that there is so much more to it. Reading that single verse
