Grace: how to receive it and give it to others

Grace: how to receive it and give it to others

Do you ever feel like it’s hard to open up, honestly, to others with how you are really doing?  Close friends and trusted family members will ask “how are you?” but you shrug it off with “I am good,” or “doing ok, hanging in there!”  I do this, too.  There are times when I don’t…

Hurt in the moment: giving it to Jesus

When you find yourself hurt in a moment, how do you cope with it? How do you recover? Do you escape through television, shopping, eating ice cream, or sitting in self-pity? These are some of the ways that I have dealt with my hurt.  The only problem with these things is that they only bring…

Denial inhibits true growth and transformation

Denial inhibits true growth and transformation

It’s so easy to live in denial. It’s a trap that you can fall in effortlessly.  When you don’t admit that you are hurting, it inhibits you from receiving the healing you so desperately need.  I am no stranger to living in denial. Are you? I did for years. Years of believing that I didn’t…

Grief: recognizing that you don’t have to bear it alone

Grief: recognizing that you don’t have to bear it alone

In loss, there you will find grief. It can come on suddenly when we acknowledge what we have lost.  Grief can bring us to a place of great despair. It’s hard to know what to do.  I was deeply stricken by grief as I came to terms with the losses I experienced from my childhood,…

Resentment can be overcome by forgiveness

My heart was filled with deep resentment from the hurt I experienced in the past. I resented the ones who were supposed to protect me, but failed me. I grieved over the lack of relationships that were meant to show me what love and forgiveness looked like. Left with shattered hopes—fearing that I could never…

God's love

The fulfillment of God’s love

“I love you.” Growing up, I longed to hear these words. I heard the phrase thrown around a lot on television, and read it often in books, but I never heard it for myself.  It made me not really understand love.  Was I loved? Was I capable of giving love?  These unresolved questions left me…

restoration

The power of salvation for restoration

I felt like I was beyond repair; I needed to acknowledge that I had a problem, and that I couldn’t fix it on my own. I tried many times, but the compulsion to control certain things—brought on by unresolved pain from the past—overtook me.  I felt lost, and broken to the core, but knew that…

Caring for yourself well while loving others

The high expectations that I had placed on myself to love others led me to think that I needed to sacrifice myself. I placed my needs and wants last, after the wants of others. Not caring for myself left me completely empty. I was exhausted mentally, physically and emotionally. I was depleted to the point…

Trusting in Him alone

I was weary and heavyhearted, feeling like I would never be able to trust again. I had experienced a great betrayal in a past relationship, which brought me to this place. I trusted that his love for me was unconditional and secure, but it wasn’t. Left with a wounded heart, I questioned my ability to…

Is change really possible for me?

My doubts and insecurities in my identity were leading me to feel trapped and causing me to think I could not change.  I didn’t think I could trust God to change my mindset, even if I asked him. I thought this change would be too hard, and would bring me on a journey that was…
