Staying Strong

Every day is different. The same but different. Unexpected challenges, new experiences, conflicting emotions, good or bad – there’s something new with each day. More than just roll with the punches, I’d rather move forward and in a positive direction. But sometimes, because I’m human, I don’t always move forward. Sometimes I’m at a dead stop, or worse, in reverse. It just is; like the air we breathe. And so today I’m holding onto my faith and remembering my source of strength.

I’m always grateful for God’s daily presence in my life.



On a good day, I don’t shed a tear. On a bad day, there’s not enough tissues to go around. I’m looking forward to waking up one day soon and feeling my broken heart is healed. On that day, I’ll be able to look back and feel grateful for being part of something bigger than me, something that gave me the chance to love something outside of my small world as I knew it. And then I can smile instead of cry. But for now, I have my prayers and my faith.

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” – Psalm 147:3

All Things are Possible

Yes, it’s true. The Lord works in mysterious ways. Where I haven’t seen how my goals would come to pass, He’s made the impossible materialize.

I’ve always thought God has a sense of humor. When I think of the ways He’s chosen to make my dreams a reality, both past and present, the subtleties are amusing. We’ve all experienced it and chalked it up to coincidence. Not so. It’s prayer. It’s faith. It’s God working masterfully behind the scenes.

I know the power of faith. I know I can turn to him in gratitude, in despair, in love. I ask for what I think I want. And while I wait in expectation, I thank Him for blessing me with what He knows I need.
