Unhindered Love Made a Way… 

The chains of fear have had a strong hold on my heart for far too long. I have mentioned before that the Lord really speaks to through songs and lately one song in particular has been a powerful warcry in my battle against fear, “You Make Me Brave” by Amanda Cook . God is where my courage is found. The power of His  Holy Spirit makes me brave enough to pray against the fear and the spirits of oppression that sometimes cripple me. Jesus is fighting with me and for me and the victory is in His hands… 

“No fear can hinder now the love that made a way…” 

The Wind Still Blows…

The moments when the Lord speaks to my heart are so special to me. He gave me an image of wind blowing through a meadow that surrounded by mountains. He said, ” Even in the valley the wind still blows. I am with you on the mountains and in the valleys. My presence can be felt no matter where you are or what you’re going through. I can move in you whether you’re at your lowest or your highest. I am the Lord, your God,  and nothing can keep me from you”… 

Pray In The Desert….

There so many moments where I have felt spiritually dry and empty. That my heart had become a desert full of dry bones, begging for life and every prayer that I prayed was completely ineffective. My soul cried out for rain, but continued to wither. It is in these moments that God breathes new life in me. Because “those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength.” We have to remember to pray in the desert, in the valley of dry bones, in raging storms, because God is not deaf to the suffering of His children and He will restore us in His timing… 

“This is my prayer in the desert, when all that’s within me feels dry”…

Firm and Steadfast…

For so long my path felt uncertain and unsteady. I have always believed that God has a plan for me and that He will bring it to fruition in His timing. In this period of waiting on the Lord and preparing my heart for what He has in store for me, doubt has sown its parisitic seed and partially took root in my heart. But over and over again, the Holy Spirit would speak to me through scripture or a sermon and kill the choking vines of doubt in my heart. My faith has been tested time and and time again, but each time, God is faithful. 

10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. (‭1 Peter‬ ‭5‬:‭10‬ NIV)

You Make All Things Work Together For My Good…


In our deepest struggles  it is hard to remember that God is working all things for our good. The past year and half has been a learning experience to say the least, and now I have reached one of my destinations. I finally got a job that will be a really good fit for me and really play to my strengths. To finally be at peace with this part of my life is indescribabley amazing! All the times I despaired, doubted, and felt defeated all pale in comparison to the good things that God is doing in me right now…

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose…” (Romans 8:28) 

Taking The Leap…


God’s great plan for my life  is starting to unfold in amazing ways and I am so excited. I am completely at peace with what is happening and I know God has brought me to this place for a purpose. God is faithful in everything and He has never led somewhere He would not walk with me. Thank you Lord for all you have done… Thank you that Your good and perfect love never fails…. 

I’m Still Here… 


When I was little, I didn’t have a lot of friends, and it made me feel like no one liked me. Thankfully, even in the early years of my life I heard God speaking to me. Jesus would come to me in my dreams and we would talk and spend time together because He called me friend. Every once and a while I am reminded of those dreams and how Jesus was there for me when I felt no one else was and that I am special to Him and that no matter what, He is still here, walking beside me… 

You Make Me Brave… 


Sometimes I am so overwhelmed and encumbered by fear I forget where my courage comes from. I forget who is fighting for me, and giving me strength to overcome. Satan is very sneaky and he will find different ways to for you to fall into the same trap over and over again. My whole life he has used fear in some form to keep me from living out the life that God gave me. I love the way God speaks to me through song and recently I discovered a new worship song and the bridge is so powerful and meaningful to me.

 “You make me brave, You make me brave, You call me out beyond the shore into the waves, You make me brave, You make me brave, no fear can hinder now the love that made a way….” 

God has called us to a great purpose, and if we are willing to step out beyond our comfort zone and into the vast ocean, He will lead us to greater things… 

I am Not Broken…


God has given me amazing parents that pray and intercede on my behalf and impart to me the things that God has for me. The other day, my mom shared with me that God told her that I was not broken, that I did not need to be fixed, that I had been made perfectly in His image. God knew what He was doing; He didn’t make any mistakes or forget to include an instruction manual. I am fully capable of being exactly who God wants me to be, just the way I am…
