If you aren’t grateful…

I took a pass on blogging yesterday because I was feeling tapped out. I struggled to find joy in the mundane. The well was dry. I struggled to find a way to fill my spirit back up. I was still reading. I was still writing but all of a sudden I was disconnected. Here’s howContinue reading “If you aren’t grateful…”

Then there’s silence

Today I get the sense I’m supposed to just sit and listen. No agenda. No questions. No wrestling. No message. I settle in and take a few deep breaths. I sink into the comfort of His arms. There’s no sound except my heart beat and my breathing. Me: Good morning, Lord. God: Thank you forContinue reading “Then there’s silence”

Love the Unlovable

I almost didn’t take the time to be with God this morning. It’s Sunday and we’ll head to church in a bit. I was about to give myself a pass but then I realized how much I would miss it so I sat down and read, prayed and wrote. God: Welcome, child. I wasn’t sureContinue reading “Love the Unlovable”

The conversation went something like this: Me: Good morning, Lord. Thank you forContinue reading “You’re Too Comfortable”

It’s Not a Competition

I slept in a bit this morning and that felt really good. When it was time to wake up I hear a loud booming voice say “Welcome.” Now keep in mind, I’m traveling by myself so no one is in the room and the voice was not coming from outside or next door. I’m joltedContinue reading “It’s Not a Competition”

Teach Them

On today’s episode of “Mornings with God” I’m centered and peaceful. Great way to start, for sure. This is going to be a little different that some of the others because it’s a bit backwards from how the usual conversations go. Bear with me and I hope this helps. Me: Good morning, Lord God: GoodContinue reading “Teach Them”
