Gaining God’s Favor makes life easy, right? Wrong…

The favor of God. That HAS to be a wonderful thing! Knowing that the God of the Heavens who has created everything and knows both history and the future has placed His favor on YOU! There may come a time in your life where you will realize that God has intentionally chosen you to play a pivotal role in His grand plan. As a matter of fact, it’s highly likely that He already has placed His favor on you! When I think of God’s favor, I’m imagining that everything is going well. I am obedient and everything falls into place

What will your heavenly crown look like?

As we are inching closer and closer to Christmas, I’ve been spending some personal time focusing not only on Jesus birth as we traditionally do, but I’ve found myself fascinated by His King-ness as we celebrate the season. I do love the story of Jesus as a newborn baby, and I understand the deep importance of Him coming to this broken world as a Holy and perfect example of Heaven. We learned so much from Jesus and His life! His birth is just the beginning. Last week, I told you how I found myself in tears as we sang “Revelation

Can you imagine the Angels singing?

This morning in worship, we sang the Revelation song. It’s an oldie, but a goodie! As soon as I heard the first chord progression, I thought to myself “Oh great…here we go, I’m going to cry in church this morning” But in this case, it’s a good thing. The fact that this song, after hearing it so many times over the years still makes me so emotional is due to what I believe to be the supernatural power behind the words. Because they aren’t just words in a song…they are powerful, heavenly words, taken directly from one of my favorite

Are you believing the lies?

I received a really nice card in the mail this week that had this written on the front: “You are loved by God- Higher than the sky… Deeper than the ocean… More than you can imagine… More than you’ve ever dared to dream.” Last week after I shared with you how self-conscious I am about my raccoon eyes, I was flooded with emails, texts and even comments in person about how beautiful I am, both inside and out. I’m not fishing for compliments, I swear! But I will admit, that hearing women setting aside their own awkwardness and being bold

Why do I hate the way I look? Is beauty really within?

Why do we as women love to hate ourselves? Why are we so quick to judge the body and features God gave us? The people in my life who know me well, know that I am a woman who wears makeup. Not a thick, heavy face. But I enjoy brightening up my appearance and have more confidence when I have the blemishes powdered and my mascara on. I feel more awake and pulled together. I’ve never seen it as a problem of my heart until this week.  Every morning, our getting ready routine is stretched thin over about 2 hours,

God’s Handwritten Letter to You

Are you old fashioned like me? Like..I totally geek out over the stationary aisle at the store, all of the paper…THE PENS!  And don’t even get me started on the awesome smell of a bookstore! There is something so wonderful about the smell of new books and paper. It’s a little bit heavenly! I love writing things with my hands, but even better is receiving a handwritten note. A few weeks ago, I went to my mailbox to get the daily pile of boring junk mail. But I was stopped short at the mailbox when I found what appeared to be
