God’s Word Stands Alone

One lesson that the Holy Spirit has been ministering to me about lately is the importance of being able to stand alone in confidence in what God tells me. If He gives me a word and/or a peace about something, I should be able to go forward on that word with confidence and boldness. Friends […]

The Walk

Today, I walked. While children were still asleep, While the air felt the freshest, While I could still hear the birds, And while the grass was still wet with dew, I walked. I thanked God for life and health. I spoke to, and rebuked the ugly thoughts that tried to sabotage my mind, And I […]

Whatsoever Things Are Lovely…

I don’t know about you but, during this time, I’ve been having to practice applying this scripture more than I’ve ever had to before. . Our minds are truly more powerful than many realize.

New Year, New Revelations, New Direction!

In this past year, I have continued to grow as a person–allowing myself the space to make mistakes, to be imperfect, and to receive Truth.  I’ve been continuing to release the need to people please, release the fear of not being accepted, and that of judgment.  I’ve worked on setting healthy boundaries, balancing my responsibilities–including […]

YOU ARE Enough

The next time someone, including yourself,  has the audacity to ask, “Who do you think you are,” whether it is asked in word, deed, thought, action, or reaction, you respond boldly and unconventionally with, “I AM WHO I AM,” and that’s enough. It is not blasphemy, and neither is it arrogance.  It is not the […]

Calm & Well Balanced

Dear God, . Thank you for helping me to find my voice–for allowing me to experience situations that force me to speak up for myself and to set boundaries. . In these situations, you’ve allowed opportunity to overcome my fear of offending others. . For years I’ve silenced myself, denied myself, compromised myself–out of fear […]
