Soaring: What Happens to Those Who Wait for the Lord

Soaring: What Happens to Those Who Wait for the Lord

This week, we have been on a journey toward renewing our prayer life. We heard God’s invitation to be still and rest … We settled into the reality that we’ve felt weary for a long time, and God desires to replenish us gently and tenderly. And as we wait for renewal and restoration, we rejoice in the hope of what is to come. Today is Day 6 of Resetting the Rhythms of Life, and we discover what happens to those who…

My Refuge: Waiting With God

My Refuge: Waiting With God

On Day 5 of Resetting the Rhythms of Life, I encourage us to be patient with the renewal process. We did not get overwhelmed, weary, and off-balance overnight. So, we may not receive complete restoration overnight either. Over the years, I have learned that a lot happens when we wait for God … when we wait with God. There is important healing taking place. Continue to be still, rest, and experience the replenishing work God is doing in you ……

Replenish: God’s Satisfying Work

Replenish: God’s Satisfying Work

It’s Day 4 of Resetting the Rhythms of Life … and we will contemplate weariness a bit longer. Why? Because I think it is something that settles in and can be hard to uproot. So often, our weariness is with us for a long time. We can get used to it. We can forget what it feels like to not be weary. But God doesn’t want us to remain in our weariness. He wants us to remain in Him! And…

Now that we’ve stilled our racing minds and anxious hearts, what’s next? On Day 3 of Resetting the Rhythms of Life, let’s say “yes” to God’s invitation to rest a bit more in Him … Come to Me I don’t want to hold onto those things anymore, the heavy burdens that cause such weariness in my soul. I want You to take them once and for all, Lord. Take the lies, the doubts, the fear, the shame, the perfectionism, the…

Be Still: Experiencing God’s Nearness

Welcome to Resetting the Rhythms of Life! I’m so glad you’re here! Today, we begin this 31-day series by renewing our prayer life. Maintaining a consistent prayer life is something we all struggle with from time to time, which is why it is a great place to start. And it will help reset everything else, too. Since we are resetting, or renewing, our prayer life, let’s start with 10 minutes (or whatever is realistic to you). What’s key here is having consistent,…

Coming Soon! A 31-Day Series to Reset the Rhythms of LIfe

Friends, I am excited to share what’s on the horizon for me and this space that I am blessed to share with you. October is less than one week away. Can you believe it? As I prepare to enter into my favorite month of the year, I desire to nest, to gather up my loved ones, and to stay in for the night. The coolness of the air, the darkening of the days, the longing for warm comfort foods all…

Day 31: #31 Days—Trick or Treat?

It is hard to believe this is the last day of my Write 31 Days series on Dyslexia Awareness. I was nervous to take this on, as I stated in yesterday’s post, but God has given me so much grace to endure. To endure during these 31 days of writing. But also to endure in this journey I am on with my daughter. “… for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and…

Day 30: #31 Days—Scripture Sunday

“So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9) When I first started seeing promotion for this Write 31 Days challenge, I was not sure what my topic would be. I was not even sure I had any business writing for a month straight, because my own personal and mental health was a bit weak. I have been battling chronic illness for about…

Day 29: #31 Days—Saturday’s Saint

Day 29: #31 Days—Saturday’s Saint

The last saint in my mini “Saturday’s Saint” series within this 31-day writing series is St. Bernadette Soubirous. She is a most beloved saint in the Catholic Church, because the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to her and asked her to build a grotto for healing in her honor. St. Bernadette was born in Lourdes, France on January 7, 1844. She was the oldest of nine children, but some of her siblings died at a young age, and even Bernadette became sick as…
