When your chaotic life needs peace

It’s Wednesday, and likely for some that all the busy and the crazy and chaos of the week peaks in the middle – and if you’re not careful… the thoughts may start creep in. Thoughts of: ‘how many times did I fail?’ ‘who did I let down?’ ‘how am I gonna make it through this week?’ or ‘I feel replaced’, ‘this battle is hard’ where are you God?’ It’s possible that you may dread these kind of days and moments for the thoughts that they bring. But let me say this: The mind is surely a battlefield, and there is a war over what/who will consume your thoughts. The enemy would like to hold them captive so he doesn’t have to do anything more. But the truth is already written, bought and was shed in blood so that we can rebuke the lies and take hold of the truth. The Truth is this: The Spirit of the Living God can set you free from thoughts that steal your peace. If this day is a chaotic day for you, get away for a moment and recall the truth, speak it over your mind and let the lies be washed away. We have that authority as children of God. That’s all. “…the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans... read more

When your soul needs to rest

I snapped this picture tonight while my husband and I enjoyed a few kid-free hours together.  I love these restful moments. Because: when the tasks are daunting, and the kids are whining, and life isn’t stopping…   It can all be a whirlwind if we don’t hold onto our first love. He promises to give us rest, BUT sometimes we have to open our hands and receive it. It’s for our taking! He already paid the price so we can lay our burdens aside. The true rest for our souls comes out of surrender to His plan for our life. “…Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew... read more

when you need to crush the lies

Lies whispered: ‘you are destined to live in fear & confusion’ ‘you will always be overwhelmed’ ‘God’s promises don’t apply to you’ ‘you are not good enough to be heard’. …when you are tempted to believe those lies, remember: {THE VEIL} A veil so high, so thick that it completely separated man from having access to the presence of God. {UNTIL} the son of God shed His blood on our behalf. At the moment it was finished, that veil was ripped in half from top to bottom, giving us access to the holy redemption, salvation, and every promise God has stated. The enemy would like us to believe we are forgotten, unlovable and too small to be noticed. But.. we can crush those lies when when we remember the veil that was torn and grab onto the PUREST of LOVE that was given in exchange. Be blessed... read more
