God Watches Over You!

God watches over you even when it doesn’t feel like he’s there.

Have you ever felt that way?

I had to share this woman’s journey to trust God in a very difficult time of her life.
She believed in God, but needed help to TRUST him more.

When it feels like you are all alone, remember you are not.
You have a God who loves you and wants you to trust him.

God, I know that I am always on your mind and in your view. Let me see where you are at work. Bolster my faith as I trust you more and more. Amen

Psalm 121

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.

 

Sharing Your Story Will Spread Hope

We all have a story.

Most stories have a hard season or a spot of deep sorrow.
It’s hard to share that part of your story.

You might be judged.
You might be rejected.

I know that’s what I feared.

Sharing your story,
your hard story,
is like spreading hope with a fire hose.

There is nothing like the freedom that comes from being brave.
From sharing your story. 

That’s why I’m dedicating this video to every woman brave enough to share her story.

Did you relate to my fears about sharing my story?

What is the biggest fear you have about sharing your story? 

 

Lord God, inspire us to share that thing that tried to take us out from pulling the same garbage on another woman. Be with us, give us discernment and wisdom. Guide us with safe boundaries, but undergird us with courage. In Jesus Name, Amen 

When Holidays Are Hard, Take Heart

It’s December.
That wonderful time of year … for many.

But for some, when it seems like the rest of world
is celebrating Merry and Bright lives,
you feel overwhelmed and alone in the dark.

When holidays are hard, take heart.
God is with you.

Marilyn* watched her husband pick at his dinner.
“I need to tell you something,” he said without looking up.

There was a long pause before he continued.

As she waited, she imagined all sorts of things.
Maybe he’d lost his job.
Maybe something had happened with one of the kids.
Maybe he was sick.
