7.31.17 Prayer Prompt: Taking God for Granted

PRAYER PROMPT ••• I’ve noticed something in the last year.  As much as our society talks about living life with a grateful heart, I’m not seeing it.  Think about it – whether you’re reading this on Facebook or Instagram, aren’t a good chunk of the posts you see in your feed all about warm fuzzy feelings of living life grateful or being thankful?  But has … Continue reading 7.31.17 Prayer Prompt: Taking God for Granted

6.14.17 Prayer Prompt: Praying for Faith

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Ever since I began my walk with God, three words have repeatedly defined my faith-journey: Grace. Prayer.

4.18.17 Prayer Prompt: Sit Still and Wait

PRAYER PROMPT ••• Sitting still isn’t easy for anyone.  Ask anyone who has spent 30 seconds with a toddler and you know that sitting still isn’t something that comes naturally… even many adults struggle with it.  Sitting still is a learned behavior and it’s one that some spend a lifetime trying to perfect (I’d raise both hands here, but I’m trying to type). But the … Continue reading 4.18.17 Prayer Prompt: Sit Still and Wait

Praise Prayer

I have given myself a new challenge this week…  Praise Prayer.  A designated time of day where I pray for the sole purpose of honoring and worshiping God.  No requests from me.  Just a simple prayer of praise.

Worry Is Insulting to God

On Sunday, my husband and I watched a sermon by Dr. Charles Stanley on the temptation of Jesus.  This was a great message that really convicted my heart several times. One of the things the sermon challenged me to do was to specifically pray that the Holy Spirit reveal areas of my life where I succumb to temptation without even being aware of it…  I’m … Continue reading Worry Is Insulting to God

The Illusion of Control

I am a self-professed control freak.  I am always the driver; never the passenger.  When it comes to spreadsheets, don’t ask me to explain it.  Just get out of my way and let me handle it.  Help me with the cooking?  No, thank you.  Please get out of my kitchen.  I am a person who likes to go it alone. And it’s not because I don’t think … Continue reading The Illusion of Control
