THIS is one thing I want to make sure to document from 2020. As I prepared my first email of the new year, I realized I had posted my miraculous cancer update everywhere but on the blog. So... here's to taking a step back and remembering a huge God moment in my life....
It’s the happiest season of all AND, possibly, one of the hardest seasons of all. Amidst ALL the expectations and plans is a God who longs to be SEEN by you.
It’s because of the loss and difficulties I’ve walked through that I’ve learned to look for and track God –with everything in me! And… I have SEEN Him at work in my life in an up close and personal way. He truly is my hope and the foundation of my faith.
I’m so excited to share more info about the upcoming Tracking God Challenge! During our time together, you’ll learn to 1. Connect with God in a deeper way 2. Grow in your ability to notice God at work in your life, and 3. Practice “waiting well” through a new habit of tracking God. Click on the blogpost for a link to sign up.❤️
Sometimes I simply amaze myself with my lack of awareness for certain things! Today on the blog, I’m taking you WAY back to my first week of being married and sharing a story that will help make my point of how Jesus is our faithful shepherd who calls us by name.
What a year this has been so far! School starts this week for Olivia, and it is looking quite different than what we had anticipated. I’m sharing how Eddie and I made a big decision last spring and how it’s unfolding now in our current crisis situation. And… I’m sharing an amazing way to pray when you are looking for God in the craziness of life.
I want to share something with you that I think will encourage your faith SO MUCH! Last week I had the honor of being interviewed by my friend, Cheri Fletcher, about how I use my journal to track God. Cheri wrote a follow-up email that beautifully illustrates the power of telling God, “I know you see me, AND… I want you to know… I see YOU. You will be blessed!!
It can be hard to realize that God has a beautiful plan for our lives when we end up stuck in an uncomfortable holding pattern. How can you ignite a spark of hope in the midst of waiting and suffering? What can you do to stay anchored to your faith when you feel like life has stalled? I’m hoping to offer some encouragement as I share about my last week and reflect on the faithfulness of God throughout my life.
The issues our country is facing today are huge… not an easy quick fix. The discussions need to happen, beginning in our own homes. I’m sharing a glimpse into my own journey of making the effort to listen well. In other words—I blew it last week, but I’m thankful for fresh starts and more chances to quickly mend the fences!
