Category: GROWING IN CHRIST

the Three-legged stool…

Lord Jesus, thank you for being my strength when mine is not sufficient.  Thank you for letting me see glimpses of You in the midst of the darkness.  Thank you for drawing to me when I pray and seek Your face in the midst of the unknown.

Somewhere between then and there…

When I first wrote this Journal entry and prayer below, it was 2 years ago and we were facing a seemingly unsurmountable mountain.  Everything around us seemed to be disappearing, and we struggled to hold onto our hope for any type of reprieve.  All… Continue Reading “Somewhere between then and there…”

OLD TRUTHS…NEW EYES

A funny thing happens when we grow, things in us begin to change.  This can be a physical growth, I’ve definitely experience the change in how clothes fit over the years.  Or, it can be a Spiritual growth, where we start to re-look at… Continue Reading “OLD TRUTHS…NEW EYES”

IF DISCIPLINE IS A GOOD THING…Why does it always feel so bad?
