Pleasing Jesus instead of people

Pleasing Jesus instead of people

Is it hard for you to say “no”?  It’s hard for me too. Sometimes it feels like I am trapped in a vicious cycle of agreeing to everything with no way out.  I get deeply hurt because I feel like I’ve lost my choice, and end up disappointed in myself for failing to do it…

Mending an unsettled heart

Are you struggling with an unsettled heart? I can understand. When I was first getting to know Jesus, I was deeply torn between how I was living and the life he was calling me to live. Faced with a life-altering decision, desperate for help, with no one to go to, I sought after Jesus. The…

Fear only the Lord

Fear only the Lord

Jobless; I didn’t know who I was anymore.  I knew I needed a change, but what I didn’t realize was that my identity had become tied up, and defined by, my vocation.  It was hard to know who I was anymore. I felt like I had lost my identity and purpose. Deep feelings of fear—of…

Anger: finding healing from the hurt

My silence conveyed it all to him.  We once could lock eyes across the room and guess what each other was thinking, but now I could barely look him in the eyes or talk to him. I didn’t want to have a broken marriage, but I felt like I couldn’t let go of my anger. …

Learning to heal: 5 ways Jesus sacrificed for you

Have you ever wondered whether your sacrifices were worth it?  Letting go of the past for a better future requires sacrifice… but it can be hard to look beyond the pain and hurt. Having to forgive; releasing your anger and bitterness; and being humble before the Lord, admitting your need for his help, can lead…

Letting go of toxic shame

Letting go of toxic shame

The sweat dripped down my forehead rapidly as I realized I had messed up again.  Getting lost while driving was common for me; I shamed myself for my miscalculations.  Even with the GPS on, I would get lost—fearfully anticipating the worst.  Over and over again, I would internally question my abilities thinking “Why are you…

Overcoming hurt in friendships

Overcoming hurt in friendships

I thought we were friends. It never occurred to me that maybe she didn’t think of me that way. I never expected that she viewed me differently. We talked often when we saw each other, and made plans to hang out. Even shared our struggles from time to time. I appreciated her and those moments…

Rest and Surrender

Rest and Surrender

When your heart is troubled, it can sometimes feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster. The ups and downs can continue with no rest in sight. It’s utterly exhausting. One moment you feel completely, overwhelmingly struck in this place—and the next moment, like you can get through it.  The lows seem to outweigh…

Faith in difficult times

Faith in difficult times

Do you ever feel like you lack faith?  Having faith is a foundational component of following Jesus, though it’s hard to have faith in every circumstance—especially when you feel hurt from not knowing the outcome of something.  When things don’t go as planned, or they don’t seem to go in your favor, do you ask…

Don’t blame yourself

Don’t blame yourself

Do you blame yourself when something goes wrong? Or think what happened is always your fault?  I have a tendency to do this.  “I hate myself,” “I really blew it this time,” and “nobody likes me” are common phrases that can saturate my mind in these times.  I question whether the outcome would have changed…
