Finding Rest

“There is a wideness in God’s mercy, like the wideness of the sea.” These words thrill my heart and quiet my mind. Mercy in the original bible languages can also be translated Grace, Steadfast love, Unfailing love. And there is a WIDENESS in it from God to us. Plenty of Grace Steadfast love as vast… Read more »

SeLaH -The Pause

SeLaH…a pause, a moment of stillness in the midst of  life.    A breath, a moment to linger and reflect. In the middle of the busy, the exciting, the sorrow and struggle, the mundane, the worship and wondering… We can Pause.

What if Struggle is Necessary?

Yep, you read that right. What if struggle is a necessary part of our growth in Christ-likeness, faith, and even more importantly, to draw all our eyes to God?  I have wrestled this question for years, not wanting to yield. What if struggle is a necessary part of our growth in Christ-likeness, faith, and even… Read more »

What will you wear?

Clothed in strength and dignity. Covered in Grace. Clothed in Christ’s Righteousness. Wrapped in Love. Cast off garments of fear, insecurity, judgment puddle at her feet. Naked, ashamed, afraid of being seen, she trembles. Clothed in Grace? Wrapped in Love? “Yes,” He whispers, “They are yours.” “My Gift to you.” Robes of righteousness, beauty, and belonging swirl around… Read more »

I’ll have it “my way.”

I really do prefer things my way.  Honestly, I think I am mostly right and my ideas are good, so why not do it my way.  Right? I remember telling a friend -as we discussed a difference in parenting styles. -if I thought the way I did it was wrong, don’t you think I would… Read more »

Why memorize?

I like memorizing.  I know it makes me a bit of a geek, but I liked memorization in school, because I was good at it. You know that game we all played at wedding or baby showers, where you look at a tray of wedding items – garter, penny for show, invitations -or baby paraphernalia- rattle, bottle,… Read more »

What You Need to Know about Name Calling!

What names do you call yourself?  Life giving names: Lovely, strong, enough, wise, blessed, forgiven, beloved?  Or  shaming names: clumsy, foolish, fat, ugly, not enough? It matters…a lot. This is something I struggle with; that’s probably why I write, speak and teach about it so often. The journey from living in shame and self contempt… Read more »

Where do you find your value?

You know that feeling- sweaty palms, heart racing, stomach in knots when you know -you’ve been found out, caught, and you’re in trouble!?  I hate that feeling. It is perfectly described in Lam 1:20  and it assaults me when I know have done something wrong,  been rebellious or crossed the line between right and wrong, obedience and… Read more »

An Audience of One

That’s my nametag.  That’s your nametag too. No matter what, this truth remains.  And that is enough.  if… we allow it to be. John coached our daughter Emily for years and I remember watching the young girls on his soccer team bloom under his kindness, encouragement and instruction.  They reveled and rested in his delight in them… Read more »

Steadfast Love

  Steadfast Love is the English translation for the Hebrew word “hesed;”  one of my favorite concepts in the Old Testament that requires multiple words and ideas to understand.  Hesed is too big a concept to contain in a word.  Hesed is God’s love for us- covenantal everlasting, merciful, kind, gracious, tender, never ending, unchanging, steadfast…and more. Just… Read more »

When life just hurts…

Grace… How are you doing with Grace? Do you sink into it and allow it to sustain you?  Are you soaking in the Grace lavished on us by God? When life hurts, threatens to overwhelm you, when pain in all its variety presses in on you…  Do you allow Grace to be more Persistent than… Read more »

Keeping it Real…

Disappointment, Discouragement and Struggle are more a part of life than we like to admit. Especially on social media. Everything is shiny, positive and wonderful!  No one posts pics of their family fighting, bad hair days, or the ugliness that can crowd our days. Sometimes I hesitate to share or write about the reality of… Read more »
