The other day as I was contemplating my struggle with choosing the right things to eat, and eating way too much sugar, I started talking to God about it…again. Only this time when I was complaining about myself to Him again, I heard something way down deep inside of me, and I decided to really listen. My conversation kinda went like this…well…. I say kinda, because I can’t promise that I remember everything word-for-word, but I do remember the most important things that were said to me.
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it at least 100 times…”If I could figure out how to put this beauty filter from Snapchat on my face when I go out, I would do it in a heartbeat!” I can just imagine walking in the mall or somewhere with this huge phone in front of my face and only letting people see me through the lens of whatever filter I chose for the day. I have to say, I do enjoy playing with those silly filters and creating stories on Snapchat. I think it’s fun!
One day I was looking to see what new filters came out, and I heard a still small voice speak to me, “All anyone needs is My filter, the blood of Jesus.” To say that it resonated within my spirit would be an understatement. All of a sudden, Continue reading
Yesterday I went mountain biking and I made a big mistake! Now that the park is closing earlier, we were not able to park where we sometimes do at the trail head.

Lately, I have been thinking about a time when I saw this flower that had been uprooted out of the ground, but yet it was still blooming.

I remember that I asked a friend in church what it could possibly mean if we looked at it in a spiritual way. I will never forget what she told me. She said, “Not everything has to have a spiritual meaning. It’s just a flower.” Continue reading
I have been noticing over the past couple of months that my husband has only been riding his single speed bike when we go mountain biking. At first, I didn’t think anything about it, but then I started wondering what the big deal was? He had bought a Gary Fisher single speed bike a couple of years ago from someone off of Craigslist and rode it off and on, but now he is riding it all the time! Continue reading
I have been way off track in my eating habits lately. Why is it that I can be going along and doing so well, then BAM! KAPOW! I am eating sweet things like there is no tomorrow. It’s like, I know it starts happening but I don’t stop it. Is this binge eating? Continue reading
Do you ever stop and think about the beginning of your walk with God? Tonight while I was spending time in His presence, I began thinking about that feeling of falling in love with Him. That feeling that makes you want to run and dance and sing about the love of the Father. I have to say that I’m more in love with Him today then I ever thought possible. His love just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter.
