A Post From Beautiful Cindy – GRATITUDE

I was uptight and out of sight at work today (STRESS!) and got this email from an AMAZING friend who gave me permission to share her update on her journey with cancer!   Her gratitude is amazing!  A grateful heart is a full heart!  A heart full of hope, promise, and joy! Give thanks to…

Small Things

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. – Mother Teresa Ever notice it’s easier to present a major project at work than it is to do the dishes for the third time in the same day?  To listen to one more “It’s not fair!” story, or remind a…

God Size Dreams!

I had a wonderful night with my Woman of Worth Mentoring Ministries girls!  We went to the Pregnancy Help Center (http://www.phcchesterfield.com/) and helped move baby items around to another room and heard two great testimonies!  The Pregnancy Help Center is not only there to help you in your time of need if you are pregnant…

Worship in Spirit and Truth…

“God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24 In Worship this morning God brought new meaning to this verse.  Worship can be confusing at times because of its intimacy.  You are at the very throne of God worshiping and praising Him.  It’s only natural that during that time…

Peace

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15 Listening to Joyce Meyer’s testimony, she shared a vulnerable truth about herself.  She said that she was one person at work, a different person at home, and yet a different…

How Great Thou Art!

As a mom the wave of time washes over me on sleepless nights.  How did I become 47 with no babies in my arms?  My children are growing too fast.  I was up late praying for them, crying (good tears of joy), asking God to fill this void I’m feeling of times gone by and…

Got a story in your mind? What’s it saying?

This post originated in my heart from hearing a Michael Hyatt podcast on re-creating your story and Dr.  David Jeremiah’s sermon on the radio coming home from my first night back in class.  Michael shared that we all have stories inside our minds that we play out.  Our thoughts become actions.  Have you ever really…

I Want You To Be All Mine

Jesus Calling, January 21,  by Sarah Young “I want you to be all mine.  I am weaning you from other dependencies.  Your security rests in Me alone–not in other people, not in circumstances.  Depending only on Me may feel like walking on a tightrope, but there is a safety net underneath:  the everlasting arms.  So…

Under His Wings

Below is a very popular picture of Jesus looking over Jerusalem.  The picture represents this verse: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing….  Luke…

Our Purposeful Praise Day

Jesus was faithful to show us His glory in all things.  I loved the praise song: All of my life!  In every season!  You are still God!  I have a reason to sing! I have a reason to worship! The pastor at the end of the service shared our verse in prayer – GOD INHABITS…

Purposeful Praise

After Bible study yesterday digging into the Old Testament and applying it to current struggles, Parish and I ended our discussion with him making the request for our time at church today to be purposeful praise.  We prayed for God to set our eyes on Him and not our struggles.  God inhabits the praise of…

Hosea -Amazing Love

Our family rented a movie called Amazing Love.  It’s not up for awards, and certainly not going to keep you on the edge of your seat, but WOW!  What a powerful movie to show the difference someone can make in the lives of youngsters.  I appreciated their simple, loving approach to a few teenagers struggling….
