My Concrete Dove

2 Timothy 1:7-8 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. This blog is about my Christian walk. Join me for the adventure.
Is This Enough?

Is This Enough?

When is it ever enough? Is your it status-related like income, bank account, job title, respect of others, even your position at church? Is your it appearance-related like diet, exercise, make up, a closet full of clothes that make you look thinner, younger or sexier, and don’t forget the shoes? The it we’re chasing may even shift over time depending on circumstances and people around us. It that a fair observation?

A Prickly Reminder

A Prickly Reminder

We spend so much time searching for our purpose, our calling and a book that will tell us how to do it. Then there’s the perfect outfit, the right shade of lipstick, the perfect vacation spot or whatever it is we think we want or need at the time. It takes over our focus for the moment until we move on to the next ME thing. How much time do we spend searching for want we truly need?

Committed and Complete

Committed and Complete

Yes, I fall into the comparison trap chickening out of posting something on Facebook, starting a Pinterest board, or anything else that could expose my ineptness. Then, I go into the not-good-enough cave for a couple of weeks (or months) until the cycle starts all over again. This keeps me just short of commitment. Incomplete.

Heart Work

Heart Work

Heart work. That’s what my friend calls it when we allow the power of the Holy Spirit to change us. That doesn’t happen naturally. We like to hold on to things, even if what we’re holding is heavy.

Choose Power Over Rejection

Choose Power Over Rejection

My first memory of feeling humiliated and rejected was in second grade when Sr. Julie Ann yelled at me, “SCATTER BRAIN! SCATTER BRAIN! SCATTER BRAIN!” and with the eyes of all my classmates on me as I returned to my seat, across a classroom that seemed the size of a football field. The sting of embarrassment filling every part of me, burning my seven-year-old cheeks red.
