USE ME BUT

We say “USE ME” to God. Then we get rattled when he asks us to get up and move. USE ME GOD… But ….  Use me how I want to be used. Heavens no, don’t ask me to do that. I cannot be inconvenienced. Use me Lord. But.  I am not equipped. That would be awkward. Somebody else will do it. USE ME LORD. SEND ME. … Read More USE ME BUT

A LETTER TO MY DADDY

Psalm 84:10a (NIV) ~ Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere.  It’s been one year since I’ve seen your face, your smile, and felt your hugs. One year since I have heard you say “I love you”, or been able to ask you for advice, or just sit with you and visit. The longest and shortest year of my life. … Read More A LETTER TO MY DADDY

I’m Not a Good Christian

I was thinking of how often we use the term : “good Christian“. It’s become so cliche. “She’s a good Christian woman”. “He’s a good Christian”. Are they even authentically a Christian? Is there a good Christian? Is there a bad Christian? One implies the other. (Honestly, the term Christian is used incorrectly at times as well.) There are different levels of spiritual maturity. … Read More I’m Not a Good Christian

The ME God Sees

When did I grow up? I’m pretty sure that I still think I’m like 20 something. Until I look in the mirror. Or wake up with an ache. Or somebody that must be not much younger than me says “Mrs. Heather” or “yes ma’am.” Maybe it’s because in my 40s (41 to be exact), I’m learning to like me. Learning to slow down. Learning … Read More The ME God Sees

Spending Time Alone

    What happens when you don’t really want to BE PRESENT? You know… The days that you want to be alone. Zoned out. On an island even. The days that you just want to withdraw into the shadows. The days when you are just completely mentally drained. Feeling like you are pulled in a thousand directions. What about those days? Do it. Spend … Read More Spending Time Alone

Better Is One Day In His Presence

  I’ve loved the Psalms ever since I can remember. As a young girl in Sunday School class, I remember an assignment from our teacher. Come back next week and tell what our favorite book of the Bible was. Mine was Psalms. I remember well, going to vacation bible school with my cousin out of town. We memorized Psalm 23. I imagine that reciting … Read More Better Is One Day In His Presence

Beauty in the Ordinary

Beauty in the ordinary. Ordinary beauty. It’s everywhere. Beauty tends to be a term that is reserved for the PERFECT things that we deem beautiful by our standards of judging. There is beauty in the ordinary. I step onto the pavement, and the breeze is blowing cool and crisp air, and I look down and see a very unique cone of some sort. At … Read More Beauty in the Ordinary
