Grace & Truth ~ 3 Verses For Your Brokenness

If you’ve hung around my site long enough, you know my heart for the broken.  You might be familiar with my journey from brokenness to wholeness…from shattered shards of shame to a heart that passionately burns for her Savior.  If you don’t know any of my story, then start here.  Because I long for broken women to find LIFE and FREEDOM in Christ as I have, I picked Cassidy’s post as my feature this week.  Her post, 3 Verses For Your Brokenness, really resonated with my heart.

How I am Having Christ-Centered Easter Decorations

I love spring! Especially since moving into our new home about a year and a half ago.  We took possession of our beautiful new home in the fall after viewing it a couple of times in late summer.  When the following spring came, I was in for a delightful surprise with all of the gorgeous flowers that popped up in the back yard (see photos at bottom of this post)!  I always had huge, fresh bouquets of flowers!  This year, I am in full anticipation of the snow finally melting and seeing those bright colorful blossoms appear.  Here is How I am Having Christ-Centered Easter Decorations.

Are you looking for appealing ways to decorate your home for Easter? Are you looking for Christ-centered resources? How I am Having Christ-Centered Easter Decorations.

In my anticipation of spring, I am getting into full on decorating for Easter!  Spring and Easter represent New Life for me…especially since I remember that season of my life when I thought winter was never going to end.  I’m talking about both in a spiritual aspect as well as in the physical world.

Cultivating the Heart of a Daughter

You know when you think God wants you to do something but you aren’t sure if it’s really Him?  Like maybe you’re a tad crazy (or a lot crazy?).  Yeah…that’s been me many times!  And this time is no exception!  An online course – a full and busy online course – is a CRAZY idea!  But, here we are.  Me and my daughter.  Recording videos.  Sharing our hearts.  Digging into scripture.  What a journey it has been so far!  This is Cultivating the Heart of a Daughter.

Are you wanting to help your daughter draw closer to God? Do you wish your relationship with her was deeper? This course will help in both of those areas! Cultivating the Heart of a Daughter. Affiliate opportunity!

Last year, I had the idea to write a book about the heart of a daughter.  I had an outline of what I wanted to include – a clean heart, a forgiving heart, a kind heart…and 17 more ideas.  I jotted down notes and ideas and then saved it onto my hard drive.  It got pushed to the side.  Almost forgotten about.  

Until… Read More

How Jesus Was The Perfect Ransom

I sat in my La-Z-Boy recliner, Bible in my lap,  tears running down my cheeks.  “Why couldn’t I open this book?  This book I love so much?”  I felt like a failure.  Like a bad Christian.  But I was doubting everything.  I was doubting His love for me.  Did He even care about me?  Did He notice me?  My broken heart?  Or my tears?  I wish so much that someone came and spoke truth to my heart.  Yes, my husband did…every day.  But he was the only one.  What a difference it would have made if someone came and reassured me about How Jesus Was The Perfect Ransom and because of that, my Heavenly Father loved me more than I ever knew.

I doubted His love. I believed He didn’t want to see me…He can’t be bothered with my broken heart. Why didn’t someone tell me How Jesus Was The Perfect Ransom for my brokenness? My tears? My heart? All of me?

Last year, I did a study of Isaiah 53 through Busy, Busy Mamas Bible Study.  If you are looking for a simple Bible study that gets you deep into His word but doesn’t take a super long time, then check out the studies Pam has.  I’ve done a few of them and I have found them to be incredibly valuable.  She involves the kids, too – which I love.  Read More

When Your Mom Prayers Are Desperate

How many times have I stormed the gates of heaven, petitioning my Abba Father on behalf of my children?  I can’t even count the number.  The things that have brought me to my knees for my kids are numerous…and some of them have compelled me for many years.  For so long, in fact, that sometimes I wonder if my prayers are even ‘working’.  Is God hearing them?  Is His heart of compassion, His heart for this desperate mother moved enough to act on her prayers?  And then I read this amazing encounter in Mark 7 and I knew the truth.  This post is for When Your Mom Prayers Are Desperate.

Have you ever thought that your desperate momma prayers were going unanswered, unheard or ignored? I know I have felt like that at times. Then I read about another momma’s encounter with Jesus and I knew…I just knew…that He does hear my prayers. He is working things out on my behalf…and my child’s behalf. I want to share with you what I learned When Your Mom Prayers Are Desperate

Have you ever wondered if you mom prayers even matter?  If He hears you?  Maybe you’ve prayed something for your precious child for so long you think that God is tired of hearing about it.  And now He is just ignoring your pleas.  Read More

Grace and Truth ~ When Jesus Speaks: It Only Takes a Word to Change Your Life

Arise, my friend.

Stand, Weary One.

Get up and come forward.

Doesn’t that just resonate with your soul?  When Jesus speaks those words to your parched heart?  I love Ginger’s post, When Jesus Speaks: It Only Takes a Word to Change Your Life.  While I was reading it, it made me think fo a time when I read the encounter a blind man had with Jesus near Jericho and Jesus asked him an intriguing question. (Luke 18:35-41)  

“What do you want Me to do for you?” 

Jesus already knew what the man wanted.  What his desperate longing was.  But He still asked the question.  

It’s the same with us as it was with the blind man or the man with the withered hand.  In order for Jesus to heal us, we need to put our faith into action.

Be sure to head over to Ginger’s post and read her encouraging,h ope-filled thoughts.

Grace and Truth ~ Double Feature

Well, my friends, I have a double feature for you this week!  I couldn’t decide which one of these fantastic posts to feature, so I am including them both!  They go perfectly with one of my recent blog posts, Are You Offering Life?

The first feature is written by Charlie over at Mississippi Mom, What To Do When You Are Weak.  I love how she dropped her reservations and called her friend for prayer.  Even in our brokenness, we can offer life to each other.  Head on over to Charlie’s site and read her post.  Your heart will be encouraged. 

Then there is Dawn’s post When Our Heart Is The Garden Of God.  Another eloquent piece of writing that stirs the heart of a woman.  I love how she beckons us to sing into the broken places of our hearts…sweet friend, if you don’t have a song to sing right now, ask the Redeemer and Restorer of all things to give you a new song to sing.  He will.

Are You Offering Life? Or are you sitting in a puddle?

She was so distraught, in such deep sorrow that she wasn’t even able to eat.  Her husband always served her the choicest cut of meat during the feast for the yearly sacrifice.  For he loved her greatly and favored her over his second wife even though she wasn’t able to give him what he always hoped for – a son.  This was a very dark time in her life.

I’ve been there, too.  But in a different way.  I’ve been in such deep sorrow that I wasn’t able to eat from the word of God.  I know I wasn’t offering life – how could I?  I wasn’t even living myself.  And now, I wonder about you?  Are You Offering Life?  Or Are You Sitting in a Puddle? 

Sometimes when we are so caught up in our own filth, we get stuck in the puddle of life. When that happens, then we can't be used by God to breathe life into others. Are You Offering Life?

Maybe you know exactly what I’m talking about.  Maybe you are there now.  In that dark place.  And you haven’t eaten in so long – your soul has not been satisfied with the choice meat of the word of God. Read More

Grace and Truth ~ When You Need Your Heart Strengthened

I am so glad I am not the only one who has asked that question!  When life suddenly goes off its hinges, it can be easy to let your mind begin to entertain that question – “Jesus, are you real?”.  Often, that question arises when we haven’t been quieting our spirit before God.  Instead, we give Him our demands and carry on trying to accomplish these goals ourselves.  I love how Betsy offers clear scripture to help us when we begin asking that question in her post When You Need Your Heart Strengthened.  Hop on over to her site if you’ve been asking that question, too.
