The In-Between

(This series of devotionals spanned over a three year period of my life. I wrote out of truths that God shared with me throughout every season of this process. I love how he brought this all together and I pray that you will receive encouragement from what he allowed me to experience. Praise His Name!)   I am in an in-between place in my life right now.  I’m not here or there.  I’m at the half-way mark.  At least I hope I am.  I’m not sure yet because I can’t really see the end or the finish. I know I’m working toward …

The In-between. Saying No.

(This series of devotionals spanned over a three year period of my life. I wrote out of truths that God shared with me throughout every season of this process. I love how he brought this all together and I pray that you will receive encouragement from what he allowed me to experience. Praise His Name!)   I had to say the word “no” the other day and it was so very hard.  I know my voice shook the entire time and I’d like to say it was from conviction, but honestly it was out of fear.  There was fear of upsetting the …

The In-between. Preparation

(This series of devotionals spanned over a three year period of my life. I wrote out of truths that God shared with me throughout every season of this process. I love how he brought this all together and I pray that you will receive encouragement from what he allowed me to experience. Praise His Name!)   I don’t think we realize how much we are learning when living in the in-between. It’s probably because we are so focused on getting through it. But God is molding and shaping and training us in a way that only he can. It’s called preparation. …

The In-between. Perseverance.

(This series of devotionals spanned over a three year period of my life. I wrote out of truths that God shared with me throughout every season of this process. I love how he brought this all together and I pray that you will receive encouragement from what he allowed me to experience. Praise His Name!) Sometimes there is nothing quite as mind and body numbing as finishing. Especially if the finishing was monumental and consumed all of your waking, talking and breathing. You discover, in the after, that you quite literally do not know what to do with yourself. You are …

The In-between. Reaping.

(This series of devotionals spanned over a three year period of my life. I wrote out of truths that God shared with me throughout every season of this process. I love how he brought this all together and I pray that you will receive encouragement from what he allowed me to experience. Praise His Name!)   There is nothing quite as satisfying as living something you love. That does not necessarily make it easy, but it does make it very enjoyable. This is where I find myself after the in-between. I am in a season of reaping, a season of production, and I …

Are You A Teacher?

When I was a girl I enjoyed teaching school. Generally school was held in the garage of our home. At one of the places we lived I even had a big chalk board! I assumed I’d grow up and be a teacher. And I did. But not the kind of teacher I thought. God has given me opportunities to teach about Him – and my major is on His love and His care. I needed to know that most of all, so as I learned about Him I have become more proficient at this subject. Proficiency is achieved through wisdom …
