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”

Joy in the Journey

I’m joltedContinue reading “It’s Not a Competition”

I Got This

I’m sleepy and weary from traveling and sleeping in a strange bed. I feel like my brain was on overload a lot yesterday. I’m still trying to make sense of these sessions and their purpose and am I doing this right. Is there a right way? Maybe I’m just crazy. I’m trying to make senseContinue reading “I Got This”
