In the Presence of a Meltdown

Lord, You saw the meltdown this morning.  So hard.  Oh Lord, what am I to do when a family member has a meltdown? God's Word to us:  Listen. Be patient with them. And hear their concerns.  They are all wrapped up in it then. You can enter in and be that safe person.  When you... Continue Reading →

New Steps of Faith

Today, I am feeling that nothing I do is good enough.  Where did my self-confidence go? Every time I try to do the next thing, I start questioning myself.  I hate those feelings!  Lord, please help me see why I'm struggling so much with this today. God's Word to us: You are about to walk... Continue Reading →

My Rags

  I feel like a rag doll coming to you. I'm not pretty on the inside or out. Just leftovers. I've given my best pieces to meet my family's needs and even my own so all I have left are rags and remnants. Lord I need something new to work with. Fresh new material.  Something to... Continue Reading →

A Busy Mind

I am praying and my mind has wondered off several times.  I'm thinking about what I need to get done in the next few days.  I have a tax appointment, I have to plan a dessert club talk, and my mom is flying into town for a visit.  I can't even focus and it's You... Continue Reading →

Helping a Family in Need

I have been feeling guilty (or convicted) for not helping a family I know who is in need.  They are so sweet, but they have fallen on hard times.  And although I have prayed for them and prayed with them, I haven't done anything to help them get by. I remember when we had our... Continue Reading →
