On days like these

Stop trying to push your way through this day and rest in your Father's arms. Pour out your heart to Him every pain, every fear, don't hold anything back. Then let Him hold you when it hurts. Rest in Him and let His peace fill your heart. This peace doesn't mean you don't have things to do, things to be concerned about or even that the ache and weight of it all goes away. His peace comes in the middle of it all.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” - 2 Corinthians 12:9a

Awana Awards 2018

Awana means so much to me. As leaders, we hear the kids recite their verses and wonder if they are getting it. But let me tell you as a kid who grew up going to Awana, it is these verses that I learned as a child that I find myself going back to and the ones I know best.

I’m Tired…

On these days when I am tried... when I feel like I can't take one more step... when I cry out "I can't do all this". I will "lift my eyes to the mountains" and remember that my help, my strength, it comes from the Lord and when I can not He can.

If it is Strength You See…

When someone hears my story I sometimes get told
"you're strong..."
or
"God won't give you more than you can handle"
