The Enemy at work on the Scale

Did you know that constantly eating based on a specific diet is keeping you trapped and allowing a stronghold for the enemy in your life? Chronic dieting teaches the body to retain fat, slows the rate of weight loss, decreases metabolism, increases cravings/binges and increases your risk or premature death – for the hunt ofContinue reading “The Enemy at work on the Scale”

Who Told you That?

“I am who you say I am…” These words are lyrics by Hillsong Worship. I can’t make it through this song without crying. Mostly, because I’m in awe of who God says I am, but also because I can’t recall a time in my life that I let God define me and not this world.Continue reading “Who Told you That?”

Self-Talk Determines Mindset

The way we talk to ourselves and allow others to talk to us determines our mindset. I’m reading “Principal of the Path” by Andy Stanely and he states that it’s our direction, not our intention, that determines our destination.  The way we talk to ourselves sets our direction – we might intend to live lifeContinue reading “Self-Talk Determines Mindset”

Praying through the Pieces

March 3, 2019, is the saddest day of my life, so far. My dad, age 58, passed away after being blindsided by pancreatic cancer.  30 days is all it took to turn our world upside down. I had wondered what would happen to my faith if I was hit with something that hurt so badly,Continue reading “Praying through the Pieces”

Checking in or Checking off

Cool story share!!! The other day during my bible study and quiet time with the LORD, he said “let’s go for a run” so I agreed, put my headphones in and started to run on my treadmill. 30 seconds in my treadmill shut off. Frustrated, I got on my bike but I still felt theContinue reading “Checking in or Checking off”

Sharing Our Lives

“We cared so much for you that we were pleased to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives because you were dear to us.” – 1 Thessalonians 2:5 Sharing the ugly and shameful parts of life with others seems impossible.  Who wants to “air their dirty laundry” forContinue reading “Sharing Our Lives”

Learning to Fly

During my bible study this morning, I’m learning about joy in hardship.  Weird concept right?! I don’t know about you, but most of my days start with prayer and bible study, getting my mind right for the day, then without fail I close the book, something happens and I’m letting my emotions, frustrations, fears, andContinue reading “Learning to Fly”

Breaking Free

Hey all!  It’s been quite some time since I’ve written.  My world has been full of chaos, unknowns, stress, a whole lot of breaking down and a newly found breaking free. Following Jesus and taking steps to live life more like Him isn’t easy and being humbled every day can be quite painful. The lastContinue reading “Breaking Free”

Anxieties of a people pleaser

Too many times I’ve found myself ashamed of who I am because I didn’t please someone. Thought’s of “I wish I were different so I didn’t upset them” or “I wish I were someone else entirely because then they would like or approve of me.”  It’s crazy how I can go through seasons and thinkContinue reading “Anxieties of a people pleaser”

Healing Anxiety of Time Control

No, time control doesn’t refer to time travel or the ability to stop time, however, I really wish I did have that power. The time control I speak of is the kind of control that I think I have over the day to day activities and situations of life. One of my spiritual gifts is administration.  MakesContinue reading “Healing Anxiety of Time Control”
