Welcome to the third week of Myth Busters version of What’s on Your Mind!
Have you listened to this week’s sermon?
OK, true confession time for me. I didn’t do my homework! Sorry folks! However, I have a great post ready for tomorrow (part two of What does your refrigerator say about you?).
My true confession centers on a few prayer requests:
- sleep study tonight (spending the night at the doctor’s office! sounds like a horror film!)
- leading worship this upcoming weekend at church
- writing deadline due for popular Christian women’s magazine (I’m super excited… but still terribly stressed… they are accepting my article under speculation… upon acceptance it MAY be published)
So back to the task at hand. Is the Bible reliable? I look forward to reading your responses.
Who came up with that saying ~ practice makes perfect? Aren’t we setting ourselves up for failure? I mean really, how many of us are gonna hit our goals Michael Phleps’ style?
So, maybe practice makes progress would be a bit more realistic. Progress is good, isn’t it? Its just not perfect though! Read the rest of this entry
Have you ever uttered that dreadful phrase?
I didn’t sign up for this!
I didn’t sign up to be a part of the depression club. I didn’t sign up to be the entertainment committee for two demanding girls. I didn’t sign up to be giving the clueless hubby advise on how to help me cope. I didn’t sign up to live 300 miles away from my loving family who need me, and I them. Read the rest of this entry
This weekend’s warrior challenge is web based. The ladies listed below are wonderful writers and inspire me in my daily Christian walk. So, your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to visit these sites over the course of the weekend and PRAY for each lady and her blog-ministry as God leads. You’ll get “bonus points” if you leave your prayer as a comment on their site! Have fun. Read the rest of this entry
Tonight, the electricity went out after a brief rain shower. The lights were out for about an hour or so. Right around bed time. So my girls were treated to books in bed with daddy and flashlights. What could be better?
Unfortunately, for those who suffer with depression, there are no flashlights to illuminate our heavenly Daddy sitting along side your bed stroking your hair, singing you to sleep. Read the rest of this entry
As I mentioned yesterday, I felt like having a baby would cure all my problems. I saw women in church who could connect so easily with others. And, to me, the connecting factor was a baby.
After 2 years of infertility, God answered my desperate plea. I was thrilled to be pregnant. Within a few weeks, things turned ugly. Bleeding started. Cramping occurred. A miscarriage was predicted. The doctor told me that the chances of carrying this baby was “a coin toss.” Yes, they told me the life or death of my child was a COIN TOSS. (I should have written a letter!)

Reading last night I found a little treasure. It was something that I had read before, but I saw it in a new light.
A young boy was rejected by his brothers, beaten up and left to die. He was sold into the slave traffic and sent to a foreign country. Later, he was accused of assaulting a woman (however, she was the one who assaulted him) and landed in jail. Read the rest of this entry
Below is from author, Marissa, at By Grace Alone:
How do we trust God when He seems distant or absent from our lives? We’ve all been there – we’ve prayed and prayed, and things are still not working out like we planned. Often, when my plans don’t work out the way I hoped, I am devastated. Then I realize that I was not trusting God in the sense of wholly submitting to His plan for my life. I was merely believing that God would give me what I wanted, when I wanted it.
