Forgiveness vs. Love #100daysoflesshustle

Can I be transparent?  Forgiving someone is one thing but having to love them is an entirely different creature.  Today’s reading on Christ’s love has deeply convicted me.  During my job-like trial over the past 7 1/2 years I have found myself quite the angry woman.  And while I’ve sought to spend time almost daily with the Lord it didn’t stop the wounds from forming. I have been ostracized by…

First Draft Completed #100dayslesshustle

I’m often amazed at the outcome of something I’ve strived to accomplished and how it comes into fruition once it’s done God’s way.  Today I completed the first draft of my nonfiction book.  I’m very thankful for God’s direction.  He Led me on a path I may not have otherwise traveled. I had been telling people for quite some time that I wanted to write a book and while it…

Authenticity in Women of Faith #100daysoflesshustle

The struggle for authenticity in women of faith is not without merit.  We fear judgement of being ridiculed by others.  So much so it often hinders us from requesting prayer.  Even though we may be in dire need.  After all, it may wrongly assumed that our troubles stem from a lack of faith or that our relationship with God lacks depth.   God forbid its presumed to be sin related.  Here…

Sometimes it’s what you don’t do #100daysoflesshustle

Self-care is all the rage these days and rightfully so.  In fact, it’s one of my most popular pins on Pinterest.  We often burn candles from one end to the other placing ourselves last in the name of whatever our primary responsibilities are.  I’m not saying it’s not right only that we can run ourselves down trying to survive and care for everyone else. For the past several days I…

100 Days of Less Hustle, More Jesus #oldschool

Today I began using a devotional journal for my morning quiet time.  I needed something new and fresh in my time with the Lord.  For quite a while I’ve studied the old testament in preparation for a book I’m writing.  I’d become reluctant to stray from my research for fear that I would forget something useful.   I’m not an individual who uses guided journals or daily devotionals.  To be…

Day One Entry: May 6, 2019

One of the aspects of being ostracized is emotional eating. The longing to be part of a community and yet having been uninvited results in a longing unfulfilled. Jeremiah tells us “for I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds, says the Lord, because they called you an outcast saying: this is Zion; no one seeks her (30:17).” This is the promise of God to you…

Wounded while serving? Begin your healing journey

One of the joys for women of faith is being able to serve God in ministry.  Sharing our faith with little ones, young adults and those in between can be life-changing.  Witnessing the lives of those we’ve had the privilege to teach improve, because of small and consistent contributions increases our faith like nothing else.  As women serving in a leadership capacity challenges are to be expected.   We are viewed…

Leadership for Women Defined

The definition of leadership is not nearly as complex as one would think.  In fact, according to leadership expert John Maxwell, it simply means “influence.”  A concept garnered from J. Oswald Sanders’ book “Spiritual Leadership.”  If you haven’t read this classic, I highly recommend it.  According to Charles “Chuck” Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship, it’s the best book on Christian leadership out there. Leadership is Influence As believers we are…

Never Give Up On Your Dreams!

“… I will not leave you nor forsake you.” Joshua 1:5c As I read the words above during my devotional time this morning I heard the words “never give up on your dreams“ in my heart.  It was a much-needed word of encouragement. I’d given up my passion for leadership and all things ministry. This resulted in my God-given dream falling by the wayside. Joshua had taken the reins of…
