Day 11 #100daysoflesshustle

Please follow and like us:2351kBreathe… This is what I must constantly tell myself whenever I become anxious.  After overcoming years of Job-like trials I’ve found myself consistently in a heightened state of awareness.  Constantly looking over my shoulder expecting a problem to surface.  Thankfully nothing has, however, I feel completely justified over the smallest of occurrences. Breathe… “1,2,3,4,5.”  It’s become a routine of sorts.  Air expanding in and out of…

God’s Love #100daysoflesshustle

Starting Again #100daysoflesshustle

As believers in Christ death isn’t…

Not Good Enough #100daysoflesshustle

Please follow and like us:2351kI have completed seven days in my new devotional journal by Shanna Noel and I’ve yet to write inside.  In fact, I haven’t even written my name on the inside cover.  Aside from almost daily blog postings I’ve written my thoughts of a would-be journal entry on a scrap of paper.   Going so far as to tell myself that I’d rewrite it later.  A move which…

Forgiveness vs. Love #100daysoflesshustle

Please follow and like us:2351kCan 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…
