True Healing

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

My family and I watched ‘The Shack’ again last night. I never read the book but had seen the movie when it was in the theatres. What a heartbreaking yet beautiful story. It came to mind as I was praying on my drive to work this morning. Continue reading “True Healing”

Doubting Tara…I Mean Thomas

‘Then Gideon said to God, “Do not let Your anger burn against me that I may speak once more; please let me make a test once more with the fleece, let it now be dry only on the fleece, and let there be dew on all the ground.” God did so that night; for it was dry only on the fleece, and dew was on all the ground.’ Judges 6:39-40

I hope I’m not the only one here but my faith can be like a yo-yo. One day it’s strong and I feel like I can take on the world and the next I can feel like the slightest breath of wind would knock me over. That is one reason I like the story of Gideon so much. It actually makes me laugh. As funny as it may seem to me it also give me Hope. Continue reading “Doubting Tara…I Mean Thomas”

Fighting Lies

Surely the Lord has done great things! Don’t be afraid, my people. Be glad now and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things.” Joel 2:21

I’m currently writing this in a hotel room in upstate New York. I’m working out of a few of my organizations sites this week, giving me an opportunity to meet the directors and to do some training. Although I normally enjoy staying in a hotel once in a while, it’s not quite the same when my hubby isn’t with me. I can all too easily stay in the room after work and pretend the outside world doesn’t exist. Continue reading “Fighting Lies”

A Light In The Darkness

The Lord is my light and my salvation- so why should I be afraid? the Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?” Psalm 27:1

It really seems that life is so much busier than it was in my parents generation. The adults (often both parents) are working long hours while even the kids seem to have no free time. If they aren’t participating in a group in school, they’re in several different sports-leaving them with just enough time to get their school work done. Society seems to think that the busier you are the better your life will be. Unfortunately it often leads to an overwhelming amount of stress, depression, anxiety…is it all really worth it?
