Waiting is hard.

Called Out of Fear

You called me out from the grave
So I can live like I’ve been changed
There is a new song in my soul
And it begins when I breathe in
Your word of life

Word of Life by Jeremy Camp

I was on my way to the chiropractor and in the midst of a panic attack when I first heard this song on the radio. The words, “You called me out of the grave..” really spoke to me and in that moment, I heard the voice of God whisper in my ear Continue reading “Called Out of Fear”

I was reading, “The Pursuit of God”, by A.W. Tozer recently and came across a passage that resonated with me and stopped me in my tracks.

I hate making mistakes, and I think that many of you reading this would say the same thing.

I hate the feeling that I let others down, let God down, and myself down. I’m a perfectionist and I have to do things right and when I don’t, I tend to beat myself up and obesses over it.

When others make mistakes though, it’s a whole different story. What makes it different?  Continue reading “Have A Little Grace…On Yourself”
