Why Me?

Do you ever question the road life has lead you down?
Or maybe asked yourself the question- WHY ME? I know I have.

I remember the days when crying myself to sleep was my “new normal.” Questioning the path I was on. However, as I see how things have unfolded as a result of my surrender to God, I say, “Why ME?” I say, “REALLY GOD?” You mean I get to spread hope and encouragement to others who are experiencing the pain of THEIR PATH? A blessing that makes my heart burst with gratitude.

Because it’s Christmas I am drawn to remember the life of Mary & Joseph to encourage you today. I look at their life, and I think I had an “easy path.” Mary was pregnant outside of wedlock, yet STILL a virgin! And “YEAH RIGHT?” was the consensus of everyone around her. I can’t even begin to image how she handled the emotions of knowing she was the topic of the “town gossip.”  But what about Joseph? How he must have felt has he struggled to accept this far-fetched story that his wife was pregnant and he had nothing to do with it? The hurt and betrayal that must have been sitting heavy on his heart. Most of us know the story of the birth of Jesus and think what a beautiful story, but maybe not realize just how much Mary  and Joseph suffered to bring the good news. Mary was literally carrying the savior of the world, and not only was there no one to share in the excitement, she was treated as an outcast. 

Are you facing something that is making you feel like an outcast that is paralyzing you with fear? Maybe you are trying to move forward to follow a God given dream, but the opposition seems impossible to overcome! I want you to know you are not alone, and to find comfort in knowing that Jesus is with you, and your biggest struggles CAN bring you your BIGGEST joys, and can enable you to have more strength and courage than you thought possible!

Find HOPE and choose courage to keep pushing forward.

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13

The Power of Prayer & A Father’s Heart!

Do you find it hard to trust? Maybe wonder if God even hears your prayers? I know we aren’t shocked by the questions we have for God, or how weak we sometimes feel in our request, but what about spending some time sharing stories about the times HE DOES answer? What about sharing stories of miracles and the power of prayer? Would that encourage you today?

If I Had ONLY Known…

I would have put off all the things I had to do.” A very powerful lyric from the Casting Crowns song, Scars In Heaven. 

Hearing this song, in light of hearing the news of my dear friend Dr. Garry E. Milley, who passed away in his sleep this past week, was what inspired me to write this blog for you today. Dr. Milley was my professor, a mentor, and dear friend, and I pray you are encouraged, as I share some golden nuggets from our interview, that I always PLANNED on sharing.
