Taste and See

The Bible tells us to taste and see the Lord is good. This is one small step toward God, drawing near to Him to see Him with eyes opened. But it isn’t supposed to be a simple taste. Just as we don’t sit down at a full meal and simply taste a bite of food […]

Be Useful

Something that I have been thinking about a lot is usefulness. There are moments when we have items in our home that are not useful to us. Sometimes we have apps on our devices that are not useful.

Prosper in All

Blessed are those that “delight in the law of the LORD.” The Bible says that “they prosper in all they do.” For some, this may be seen as success, a success that brings anything and everything desired.

God Shut

There are moments in life when it can feel like you are doing everything. As a mother, I know a lot about carrying the load. Sometimes I go from chore to chore and forget to finish one before getting to the next. I often feel like a taxi driver. I actually have a bag filled […]
