Hold It Together

Hold It Together

Do you hold on to too much? Do you ever feel like you're carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders? Being an introvert, I'm personally great at keeping things to myself. Thoughts left unspoken, however, can become overwhelming if we stay there alone. I know what Scripture says. I shouldn’t be anxious for [...]

The Depressed Christian

The Depressed Christian

The Depressed Christian sounds like such an oxymoron to my ears. Scripture teaches us to be joyful in hope and rejoice in our suffering. For those struggling with depression both of these can seem amazingly difficult at times.  However, it's really liberating to share this thought.  Depression forces me to become someone I'm not and [...]

When I don’t understand  Lord, help me to take Your hand  I don’t want [...]

I knew that I needed to make some changes to my blogging schedule (among other things), but for the life of me I couldn't solidify a game plan. We womenkind enjoy poking fun of the menfolk who stubbornly refuse to stop and [...]

Gone Fishing

Gone Fishing

Pooped, tired, out of gas… I don't like taking breaks! I fight it tooth and nail! However, when the alarm went off this morning all I wanted to do was go back to bed. That's never a good sign. I'm going to sit this week out. Though I have plenty in my drafts to share, [...]
