So here it is "When Life Sucks", because sometimes it kinda does, doesn't it? This time of year, farmers often burn their fields. Yes, the fields they work so
Proverbs 4:23 - Above all else, guard your heart, or everything you do flows from it. Guard your heart. Imagine standing guard outside a gate. As the guard you decide what comes in and what stays out. And this is exactly what God's word is telling us to do with out hearts. Guard it. Be

2 Corinthians 9:7 "God loves a cheerful giver." That could be the most hated scripture ever. Why? Because it’s a guilt trip over our money. Here take your hard earned money that you scratched and clawed your way up to make, the money that doesn’t ever seem to go far enough, the money that you
I love check-lists. I like little boxes to fill in. I’m a 'make a list and check it off one by one' kind of girl. There’s a feeling of great success when I come to the end of the day and I’ve marked off each line of my long list of chores, tasks and duties.
Isaiah 40:31 - "Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." This is one of my all time favorite scriptures. Several years ago I was on about mile 20 of a marathon
You are a walking talking contradiction to yourself. You are complex and confusing. Oh come on and admit it you’re a strong independent woman who says “I can do this on my own” – yet you’re wondering why no one is helping you. You want one thing – you say another thing – and yet
