Devotions

Direction

This morning I was getting ready to go to the Anti-Drug Coalition of Tipton County monthly meeting and remembered that our meeting location had changed. I was sitting there putting my makeup on and thought “I have NO idea where I am going!” which made me laugh at myself.  The verse that I have pinned […]

Mirror Broken Mirror

And just like that, the mirror slid from the top of my makeup case and crashed onto the tile floor.  Shattered, Broken, Shiny pieces…Some so tiny, others large chunks. I cleaned up the mess and went on about my day but God kept whispering to take a look at that broken mirror. Ok, God, I […]

Go For It!

“God, are you sure this is what you want me to do?  I don’t know how. Surely you have the wrong woman! I can’t do that.” About 14 years ago, during a church service, God called me into ministry. My response was pretty much the same as the one above! But my momma always told […]

Even though…

I have felt God’s call on my life for years so I have served in a variety of ways…as a children’s Sunday school teacher, nursery director, choir,  VBS director, etc. In the past few years, I have really felt like I am supposed to step up and really mentor ladies but something, or should I […]

Answering God’s Call

I know that God has called me to do certain things and often times I get started on what He wants me to do and then I start to feel as though I am not the right person for the job…I question my ability.  I wonder WHY He would have me do this particular thing…can’t […]

Search me

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. ~ Psalm 139:23-24 NLT~ This is my plea lately.  I want Him to search me and tell me if I am doing something […]

Leftover Masterpiece

My Sunday School class is currently going through Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted .  We are on week 2 and this morning as I was reading day 5, I was especially struck by what Mrs. Shirer says about how God can take our leftover messes and make beautiful masterpieces.  She gave the analogy of how […]

Disconnected

This morning as I was hanging clothes on the line, I had my Bluetooth in my ear but my phone was on the kitchen desk. (Yes, I know…it is funny to think of the contrasting technologies being used together!) I am standing out there placing clothespins on each garment and moving slowly down the line […]

Roadblocks

Don’t you hate it when you are chugging along and things are going well then all of a sudden, you come to a roadblock? This is the roadblock that I see in the morning when I am doing my walk.  I always walk right up to it and touch it and use it as kind […]
