No Longer Orphans

“But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.” Galatians 4:4-5 The sun was setting in the distance as the last ray of light hit tear-streamed faces of children opening theirContinue reading “No Longer Orphans”

The Choice

When I have been asked, mostly by my children, what superpower I would want if I could just pick one, my first response tends to be, “to see my future,” followed by the more rational choice where I then say, “to fly!” If I knew what was ahead of me, I would know how toContinue reading “The Choice”

When I was a little girl, I remember looking out my parents’ bedroom window at a bright star in the sky and prayed, “please God, help me tell the truth.” I remember this prayer, as I was quite the imaginative girl, who liked to exaggerate the truth and make up stories that sounded better inContinue reading “In All Honesty”

I Doubt It

If there is anything I wrestle with, doubt is one of the more constant battles. I doubt what I hear God saying, I doubt what He asks me to do and sometimes I doubt myself, whether I can truly do the things God calls me to. This week, I found myself sitting in my cozyContinue reading “I Doubt It”

Forward in Hope

In the quiet of the morning, the load of food and a skin of water was placed on already burdened shoulders and the hope of stability and a home was left at the feet of Abraham. Walking alone in a desert, with no clue of where to go or what to do, water ran dry,Continue reading “Forward in Hope”
