Will you pray with me? #goingthere

I felt the spirit in me yesterday morning in a way that I haven’t felt in a while. Tears fell as I heard about our sister church in Liberia and their need for basic supplies and food as a horrific virus sweeps their country, killing so many. And the Israel situation escalating among God’s chosen people, and ISIS who is killing so many innocent people, and targeting Christians. And, and, and… And then right here, one state away, riots are happening and a community is in upheaval, possibly the nation in upheaval. It all seems a bit too much and I can’t stop praying, “Jesus, I see the persecution, I see the evil, won’t you come. Come Quickly.”

It’s ok to not be ok!

Sometimes, we buy into the lie that we have to have it all together. We worry that if people saw our tears, they would think less of us. We think that the only way we can minister is if we have it all together.

Monster Meltdown Moment – admit it, we’ve all had one!

You know the moment I’m talking about. The moment when every frustration and worry, along with a dose of anger just spews out. The moment you can’t hold back, and one little thing makes you spew words and appear like a crazy lady. You spew and then you think – oh my goodness, where did that come from and who was that person? My husband can attest I’ve had my fair share, and if we’re honest and can admit it, we’ve all had one! I call it the monster moment.
