Sand Dollar Moments
Sand dollars are rare and delicate. They come in a variety of shapes and vary in design, making them especially exciting to happen upon.

My prayer is that each post be just what God has for you and reminds you of His love, provision, and necessity in your life. God Bless!

“Under pressure, you don’t rise to the occasion, you sink to the level of your training.” A good friend shared this quote with me a few years ago and it stuck.

Sometimes I feel silly. Sometimes I feel hurt. Sometimes I feel angry. Sometimes I feel sad. Sometimes I feel excited. Sometimes I feel loved. Sometimes I feel scared.

I could take a hundred selfies, but the truth is I don’t think I’ll ever see what God sees. There is no filter to see my potential. There is no angle that shows I’m forgiven. All a selfie shows me is who I am in this moment, and honestly I tend to look at myContinue reading “Selfies Are Snapshots in Time”
15 years old and Desperate Alone Isolated Broken Depressed Worthless …and then the story changed. When I was ready to give up, God was there with open arms.

Betrayed Spit on Slandered Denied Abandoned Rejected Falsely accused Alone Suffering Tortured Yes God understands! His son endured it all and he walked to his death.
