Perfection is an Impossible Taskmaster

I’ve broken up with perfection.

I used to look in the mirror and wish.
I wished I was thinner.
I wished I was younger.
I wished I was smarter.
I wished I made more money.
I wished I hadn’t made so many mistakes.

I compared my real life to a snapshots of others.
I compared my dress size, my paycheck,
my presentation skills, my kids, and
my to-do list to other women.

And I couldn’t measure up.

Then I had a revelation!

I talk about how I had to learn to trust God with what I could not compete with or compete with on my own.

Take a look at this short video. (run time 2.5 minutes)

Does any of that resonate with you?
Know you are precious in God’s sight.

Lord, God, remind me that you are all I need and that I am worthy and beautiful and precious in your eyes. You alone see me as I am and love me unconditionally. Amen

God says to you, “I am the Creator and you are my creation. I breathed into your nostrils the breath of life (Genesis 2:7). I created you in my own image (Genesis 1:27). My eyes saw your unformed substance (Psalm 139:16). I knit you together in your mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13). I know the number of hairs on your head, and before a word is on your tongue I know it (Matthew 10:30; Psalm 139:4). You are fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14).

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.

Watch this 2 1/2 minute video. Click on the image below.

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.

Do You Believe There Is Greatness In You?

When God made you, he created a masterpiece.

There is greatness in you. 
I know this because there is greatness in each of us.
We are all chock full of God given gifts and talents.
The Bible says we are wonderfully made.
It even calls you a masterpiece!

I had a hard time believing it about myself so I’m guessing you might, too.

That’s why I made this 90 second video.
I want you to see for yourself what God says to you about you!

Friend, God put all kinds of great things in you. 
You can believe it!

God Almighty, I choose to believe your word about me. Help me to see the good and the great in me. I want to use my gifts to glorify you and encourage others. In Jesus name, Amen.

Hello Friend,

Have you ever had your expectations fall so short it tanked your attitude?

Maybe you can relate to my latest brat escapade.

So, tell me.
Are you a bitter brat or a rejoicer in all circumstances?

Blessings on your day,


Two Reasons that Hinder Your Prayers

Hello Girlfriend,

When you pray, do you expect God will consider your request? When you pray fervently, it makes a difference.

One reason prayers are delayed or unanswered is that we have no expectation or faith that God will move. Pray specifically and with anticipation of an answer! Another reason prayers are thwarted is because we are not in agreement with each other or God about what we really want to happen.

When was the last time you prayed a big bold specific prayer?
What was the outcome?
I’d love to hear from you.

Many Blessings on your day!

What Do People Remember about You?

Hello Girlfriend,

Did you know you stick in people’s memories?
Unfortunately, we can’t decide what they remember, as you will see……

So, now the question is what do people remember about you?
Tell me your story!

Blessings on your day,

Jesus, Stop That Car!

Hello Friend,

When you need help in a hurry, there’s just one thing to do……call on Jesus.
I haven’t always known to do that.
I haven’t always thought to do it even after I knew to do it.
But, I have learned that Jesus is the only answer in desperate situations.

How about you?
Do you have to come to the end of yourself before you think to call on Jesus?
He doesn’t always do what I ask, but he always answers.

What was the last time you needed a big prayer answered?
How did it turn out?

Blessings on your day,

How Do You Hear I Love You?

Hello Friend,

How do you demonstrate the love of Jesus?

Volumes have been written, but my friend taught me a simple and powerfully effective way to demonstrate the love of Jesus.
Watch and see if her idea resonates with you.

So, what do you think?
Not for everyone? I suppose not, but the power of human touch to show the love of Christ can’t be denied.

Tell me if you have a hugging friend or if you are a hugger.
In this world of politicly correctness, let’s not lose touch.

Blessings on your day,
