The Light of Midnight

In my darkest hour I looked about for God I found tears In my darkest hour I looked about for God I found fear In my darkest hour I looked within for God Within He was  In my darkest hour He dwelled in the place I hadn’t sought In my darkest hour I think God’s…

Vantage Point

From whose vantage point do you view yourself and your life? I was skimming my followed sites, and I stopped at a post at Beauty Beyond Bones, a fabulous blog about a young woman’s journey of deliverance from anorexia. She wrote about the same thing I had been reflecting on in deepening the wound. We focus too…

Rays of the Son

I had but given up Until my pain parted ways like storm clouds surrendering to the Son I had but given up Until the rays of Truth bathed me in the warmth of Your love   For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing…

Deepening the Wound

Have you ever thought you were healed only for something to be said or done that brings an emotion, one you can’t even quite name, rushing back to you as if the levees of your feelings opened only to meet with your capacity to feel? I have talked to God openly an honestly about my…

Get up and Go

Get up and go to the place which God will reveal. You can’t stay where you are for much longer. You’re stagnated by fear. The fear of change but that with which you are familiar will send you, along with your gifts and purpose, to a premature grave. Get up and go for in your…

Writer’s Block

   I once had writer’s block. I feared what my pen might reveal. Not what others would uncover, but that which I had hidden that would reveal itself to me. To write would require an honesty with myself and God. The truth that somewhere deep within me I was still hurting from the false accusations…

Futile Thievery 

What you tried to steal  God put it in motion when he formed me  in my mother’s womb. This thing you’ve attempted to take Is guarded by God’s army in eternity. When you fight me you fight Him And you’re starting a war that’s already been won on Calvary. Good luck with your futile war…

Into the Dark

I have experienced darkness within my life and I am not referring to an event which makes you sad or unhappy for a period of time. I speak of a series of events that lead you down a path of darkness. A darkness in which you make your dwelling place. It envelopes you, alters your…

The Leibster Award

    I’m honored to be nominated by Saintswest for a Liebster Award! He’s a fabulous writer and has clearly found his voice, something I am still searching for. It actually means quite a bit to me because the spiritual blogger doesn’t usually get much love from the WordPress community! It is really encouraging and, for…

Culture as Religion

I started writing a few blog posts last week that I ended up deleting. The most controversial topics were probably gay marriage and why Jesus hates your Easter (but especially your Christmas). The gay marriage post was probably going in a direction you weren’t expecting as was the random holidays Christians have adopted as their…

Because God

My whole process of motherhood has been a turbulent one. One that exists only in the nightmares of other moms. One, that when expressed to other mothers, leaves their mouth gaping, unable to swallow or even process the shock of what I have experienced. I can feel the weight of their empathy when I express…

Abortion: I Choose Life Because I Have a Choice

    I never really entered into the abortion debate. I had my own personal convictions on what I would or would not do but the political aspect of the conversation, pro life vs. pro choice, never interested me. The topic of abortion became very real to me on Sunday, January 17 of this year….
