Broken Colors

Broken pieces are still beautiful

Why is it that sometime in life, I was made to believe that is I was broken, I was worthless?  I don’t remember ever hearing someone use those words, yet I know the feelings all to well.  I guess it really is true that folks don’t remember the words that you say, but they will Read More

Waiting with expectancy

When is the last time you waited with expectancy?  You know how it feels don’t you? Waiting with a sense of just knowing that something good is about to happen.  Have you ever just felt it in your bones that something wonderful was coming?  I find myself in that place right now. Have you been Read More

The world was dark and broken…

“Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two.  And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, ‘Father into Your hands I commit My spirit.  Having said this He breathed His last.” Luke 23:45-46 Then Joseph “went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.

I want to live like that!

I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely horrible with names.  I meet new people, we introduce ourselves, and then I can’t remember their name 5 minutes later.  It’s so frustrating to me.  I’m all about remembering faces, but names…ugh!  I assume it’s part of getting older.  I struggle to remember basic things most Read More

All of us! Yes, that means you too!

How on earth can God consider me worthy of His only Son’s shed blood?  What did I ever do to make myself deserving of such an amazing gift?  Absolutely nothing!  That’s right dear Sister, absolutely nothing.  That selfless gift of Jesus’s life…that amazing act of astounding love that cannot in any way be comprehended, you Read More

Ephesians 1

Attacked

Some days are more difficult than others.  Lately, it seems the difficult days pile up and create weeks.  I’m one of those women who battles depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and lack of self-worth.  Yep, just being real y’all. You’d think that since the wounds had healed from so many years ago, I wouldn’t face the challenges Read More

James 1 Count it all as Joy

Count it ALL as Joy

Some days, it appears to be an eternal struggle to keep your head above water.  The weight of the world can sometimes bear down on your shoulders.  Questions and fears mount, even though we all know we need to just give them to God and walk away. Today was one of those days for me. Read More

Have we removed the sanctuary?

“Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them.” Exodus 25:8 It has crossed my mind many times over the years, yet the thought never lingered like it did tonight.  I was reading Psalm 77 over and over again.  I felt the need to study the words that God had Read More

I pray that Your fire will consume me

Consume me Lord.  Let your fire pour down upon me and consume my heart.  Let my soul yearn for your Spirit to envelop me…revive me Lord!   I’m fairly certain the most people don’t pray for the Lord to pour fire down upon them. I may be mistaken, however most folks desire to avoid fire. Read More
