I’ve Got The Joy?

You said there would be joy in the laying down, You said there would be joy in the letting go, You said there would be joy in the giving of my life/giving of my rights This song could not ring any more true. Here I stand wondering, where is the joy? I am letting go,…

You Know Better Than I

Recently, I was searching through netflix for a movie for the kids to watch. As I was flipping through I came across “Joseph: King of Dreams”.

Take up your cross & follow Me

The Lord has been doing a huge work in my heart. Even though I have the struggle of being home while Matt gets to go to all these awesome classes, hearing awesome teachings, being at all the services, going to the prayer room and just soaking. I just keep asking God to touch my heart…

Behold! You are fair my love! ~ Song of Solomon 4:1

Why is it so easy to listen to the lies of the enemy? They are so much more depressing than the truth of what God thinks about you. What makes the enemies lies easier to listen to and to agree with? Really. What is it? I mean honestly, what would you rather hear? That you…

Grip My Heart

Here we are. Back in KC. Most of the time it feels like a dream and not a reality. I’m not sure how to act, how to respond or what to think about all of it. But here we are. Drawn by God’s presence to this place. Since the beginning of arriving here, my heart…
