Finding the quiet of my heart

A 100-day journey to peace and purpose.
I’m sick of it. I don’t want to oscillate between emotional zombie to harried crazy-lady anymore.
I want to be free.
In the sense that I love Jesus and I have embraced the Heavenly Father’s gift of salvation, I am free from my sin. But am I living it? Do I really know what His peace is or where to find it? No. I yearn for it… I’m looking for radical. I’m looking for a bond, and a closeness with God far beyond my imaginings. I’m looking for a peace that truly transcends all human understanding. And I’m looking for His purpose for my life beyond a shadow of any doubt.
(*Deep, nervous breath.)
Are you ready to come with me? I will honestly record what I learn in 100 days. I’m sure it won’t always be pretty, but it will be the truth.

Surviving The Waiting Room for Dreams

A pinched weary voice, drones, “Number 7, 000, 899. Now serving 7,000, 899, please.” Everybody in the cramped, stale, waiting room, frantically checks their numbered paper slip. Many groans fill the air, some throw their hands in the air in defeat while bolting for the exit, while one lucky soul, exclaims, “Yes! That’s me! Finally!”… Continue reading Surviving The Waiting Room for Dreams

Is There Room For Goals AND Gratefulness?

Is it possible to Dream Big and still be Thankful for everything we have? Can we have both Goals and Gratefulness?
