When Did You Stop Dreaming?

DREAM. This word “dream” has been on my heart heavily this past month. It has literally been following me during the day and sitting in my spirit each night. First, it appeared during a prayer call I was on. A pastor said the word “dream” and the question, "When did you stop dreaming?" came to… Continue reading When Did You Stop Dreaming?

The Value of the Valley

In the past when I've heard the word "valley", it's always been something negative attached to it. Thirst. Hunger. Desperation. Lowness.

Are We ‘Withholding Nothing’ From God?

  "Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O Lord: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me” - Psalm 40:11   Last year as I was at home for the Christmas holidays, my little brother (age 10) asked me about taxes…….

Assembly Required: What God’s Plan Requires of Us

I've always had a love/hate relationship with furniture and décor shopping. I like making my living space comfy and more functional but boooooy do I dislike “assembling” things. For example, the writing desk I ordered almost two months prior had been sitting next to my front door in a box staring at me for nearly… Continue reading Assembly Required: What God’s Plan Requires of Us
