life is short, but you can’t rush healing. 

I stopped my cousin mid-sentence yesterday because she said something that totally took me back. She was telling me about her plans for next week, and she said she'd be doing something on the first of September. And that the first of September is next Friday. I interrupted her to ask "how are we already… Continue reading life is short, but you can’t rush healing.

the devil doesn’t have any new tricks. 

  Genesis 3 tells the story of the fall. You know it well I'm sure: the serpent comes, the crafty devil, to Eve and tells her, in short, that God's been holding out on and lying to her. He tells her God can't be trusted when he says that she won't die if she eats of… Continue reading the devil doesn’t have any new tricks.

what I learned about God by watching The Lion King.

I think almost everyone in the “western world” or at the very least- everyone in America has seen the Disney blockbuster movie, The Lion King. In case you haven’t, or to refresh your memory, it’s a story about a lion cub, named Simba, who’s destined to be king of the Pridelands who has a very… Continue reading what I learned about God by watching The Lion King.

gaining weight and gaining an idol.

Someone told me a little while ago, “If you start making noise declaring God’s truth, the devil’s gonna come after you. Be ready for a fight.” She wasn’t offering it as a warning, so much as a heads up to make sure I’m covered in the armor of God before I go stepping out of… Continue reading gaining weight and gaining an idol.


some things I’ve learned about the devil.

The devil is not a nice guy. Not. At. All. And I'll tell the truth about something that some people might not like: The devil has a least 2 things in common with God. The first: he wants our souls for all of eternity. Like stated in Luke 22:31; "...behold, Satan demanded to have you."… Continue reading some things I’ve learned about the devil.

one day at at time.

Okay, I'll admit it. I've got more than a few bad habits. And one of them happens to be that I tend to worry about stuff that isn't happening yet. I get so caught up sometimes in what might or could be that I start missing what IS. And you know, sadly, I've done this… Continue reading one day at at time.

hit it again.

You know, one of the best sermons I ever heard was right at my home church and the thing I remember most about it was my pastor shouting, "HIT IT AGAIN." He showed this image of a Jewish man praying against the wall in Jerusalem to portray the idea of hitting a wall in prayer.… Continue reading hit it again.

don’t ‘what if’ yourself to death.

I spend way too much of my time saying, "what if..?" Before today, though, I never really believed that was all that bad of a thing. I spent 2 whole days, "what ifing" my life and the path that it may or may not take. But... Last night, I literally laid myself down though, after… Continue reading don’t ‘what if’ yourself to death.

it’s like moving mountains.

Someone once told me that this saying is in the Bible, but it's not. Benjamin Franklin said it. He said, "God helps those who help themselves." I can't help but feeling like there's some truth there - while not ALL correct, because I feel that this statement leaves way too much unsaid and leaves it… Continue reading it’s like moving mountains.
