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

Life On Mission

        Longing For Home     When on a mission trip in Nola.. I loved it but longed for home. Now that I’m home, I long to be back on mission. Somewhere. I think of the people there every single day.

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.

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

Provoking thoughts usually come to me at the strangest times. While mopping or vacuuming or exercising usually. That might provide some insight into why there have been so few posts lately.. 💁😂 Anyways.. For some reason … Read More The Beautiful Remembering Kind

Missed Blessings

That nudge I get, the one that I can’t ignore, that’s The Holy Spirit. My JESUS living in me. Convicting. Pushing. Nudging. HIS presence. Every single time that I obey whatever it is that God lays on my heart, I am blessed. Usually the obedience is preceded with an uncomfortable feeling of SELF fighting with The Holy Spirit. I.E. : “you should really go … Read More Missed Blessings

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
