Weekly Devotion: All We See is Manna

Reading: Numbers 11:6 I have a confession to make. Sometimes I have these blessings that come my way, but I am not happy about them. I decide that God must have misheard me because He did not send what I asked for. Instead of recognizing that in His wisdom and sovereignty, He is sending meContinue reading “Weekly Devotion: All We See is Manna”

Weekly Devotion: Give Back Everything that Belongs to Her

2 Kings 8:6 My moods lately have been so unbelievably unpredictable. Some days I wake up full of hope and excitement, looking forward into the clear blue sky of possibilities, and other days I wake up and feel like I can’t see beyond my next heartbeat. The cycle of loss, grief, survival, repeat has drainedContinue reading “Weekly Devotion: Give Back Everything that Belongs to Her”

Weekly Devotion: Then He Lived

I have been moping. I have been fighting against the things in my life that I don’t like. I have been sulking. In the process, I stumbled across this devotion I wrote a while back, and it was so encouraging to me. It’s from Genesis 9:28. In the HCSB it says “Now Noah lived 350Continue reading “Weekly Devotion: Then He Lived”

Ramblings of an Anxious Mind

The water is moving faster today, lake currents driven by the wind and the temperature change and the recent rainfall that we thought might drown us all. It was comforting to me. Comforting to see a visual depiction of how I feel. On the outside, I go to work and I come home and IContinue reading “Ramblings of an Anxious Mind”

What will be born out of your barren season?

Luke 1:7, 24-25 I’ve been listening to this song by Maverick City called “Isaiah Song.” My favorite part is this line that gets repeated over and over near the end: “It was a barren season, it’s giving birth right now.” It’s so encouraging, and I feel like it’s reflective of where I’ve been for theContinue reading “What will be born out of your barren season?”

Weekly Devotion: Not Enough? Or Too Many?

Judges 7:1-7 I think right now I’m in a season of time where I’m learning that less is more. I need less money, less stuff, less people, less everything than what I have always believed I needed. But it’s a painful lesson. It’s not a lesson I wanted to learn. It’s one of those thingsContinue reading “Weekly Devotion: Not Enough? Or Too Many?”

Big Picture, Small Picture

I’m struggling with perspective. You know those pictures people make, like of the United States, or the face of the nurse that has gone viral, but it’s made up of hundreds of individual photos of people? The big picture is part of a lot of small pictures. I’ve always thought I was a big pictureContinue reading “Big Picture, Small Picture”
