Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. Matthew 18:21-22 I was never any good at math. But 70 x …
At only fourteen, I was already suffering from PTSD and self-harming. Depression and anxiety were my only friends. Feeling like an outcast at home and at school, I was contemplating suicide.
When you are in a difficult marriage, your heart is particularly vulnerable. God intended for your marriage to be your primary source of intimacy outside of your relationship with Him. Even when marriage is rocky and filled with pain, your heart’s desires for intimacy do not just magically turn off. God created you to experience intimacy, and you must guard your heart against looking for it in the wrong places.
Abuse in families is something that happens far too often and receives very little attention within the Christian community. Those of us who have experienced abuse within our marriage may have turned to our church for help and guidance, only to be mocked and scorned.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Father God, I want so badly for my marriage to be healed and redeemed. I want more than anything for my marriage to be a testimony of Your loving kindness and mercy.
This is a very special poem. This is the poem that was found on my father when he ended his life on February 10, 1992. My father carried this beautiful poem with him everywhere. It is because of these beautifully penned words that my father carried with him that I have even the smallest glimmer of hope that my father did, in fact, make his peace with God before drawing his last breath. It is because of this poem, that I hold tightly to the hope that someday I will see my earthly father again.
When depression takes over with it’s Darth Vader-like choke hold on me, I find so much hope, strength, and encouragement in the book of Psalms. It really is my go-to book for battling a bad case of the blues.
No matter who you are, where you have been, or what you have done, God can take your messy life and make it far more beautiful that you could ever imagine. All you have to do is ask Him!
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but 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.
A woman of God will seek to know God more through reading His Word, communing with Him in prayer, fellowshipping with other believers, and listening to sound teaching.
I can see so much of myself in King David, whom You called a man after Your own heart. Is it possible Lord, that You could see me as a woman after Your own heart too?

Looking out my window, Staring at the street below. I sit here and cry, As I helplessly watch my life pass by. I feel so cold and hollow inside. I check for my pulse, But there is no sign of life. Demons surround me, Clawing & gnawing, Ripping me apart. It’s all so confusing, I’m …
