Seeing Ourselves Through God's Eyes

Seeing Ourselves Through God’s Eyes

Seeing ourselves through God’s eyes rather than the lens of our past mistakes is a difficult undertaking. I don’t know if you’re like me, but I tend to be my own worst critic. I cheer others on, but beat myself up for similar mess-ups. Sophia, the main character in my book, Escape and Rescue, also struggles …

The True and Tangible Love of God

Sophia, the main character in my book, Escape and Rescue, struggled with thoughts of insecurity. Though she didn’t realize it at the time, she had falsely assumed her past mistakes made her undeserving of love – especially God’s love. It was not until Sophia found herself in the most desperate of circumstances that her eyes …

When You’re the One Standing Alone

Sometimes it’s good to be on the other side of things. To go from the one surrounded by friends to the one standing alone without any. To shift from the one whose surroundings are familiar to the one who feels lost in the maze. This has been my experience lately. Joining a new church. Starting …

A Unique Opportunity: Praying for the Adult Children in Your Life

I stood and watched as my adult children drove away, my heart whispering silent prayers on their behalf. I prayed continually while they were gone – for protection, for wisdom, for traveling grace. And when they returned home several days later, I hugged them tighter than I had in a long while. Then I uttered …

When Sorrow Invades Your Happy Place

There I sat, alone in my favorite place – my happy place. A place where I could so easily get lost in my thoughts. Behind me, in the distance, I could glimpse home. Close enough to feel safe, yet far enough away to satisfy my craving for solitude. Never once did I consider the possibility …

Prayer: Going to God on Behalf of Your Friends

My friend sent a quick text, asking for prayer over an urgent matter. I immediately texted her back – Praying now!  True to my word, I lifted a silent prayer toward heaven on her behalf, and I kept praying this same prayer over her throughout the day. She does the same for me.  You see, …

Heartbroken and Wounded: Running to the One Who Heals Hearts and Bandages Wounds

My granddaughter placed her tiny arms around my neck. Feeling heartbroken and wounded, she leaned into me and declared, “Mim, you make all my boo-boo’s better.” Wiping away tears, along with kissing and bandaging childhood bumps and scrapes had earned me her trust – and this sweet accolade. Pulling her closer, I held her in …
