you are deserving of grace

We can all be our own worst enemies, beating ourselves up at the slightest hint of failure. We all hold ourselves to a certain standard and when we don’t meet it, we often become our worst critics. You’d think it’d be the other way around: that we would extend grace to ourselves far easier than…

illusions

There are far too many emotions and opinions that we let control us in life. Guess what? Control from anyone but yourself is an illusion. You are the only one in control over your mind, soul, and body. The Bible continuously shares how we have a gift and that gift is our ability of choice.…

row the boat

“We’re in this together.” This is a phrase I’m sure we’ve all become extremely familiar with. If at once it was ever comforting, now it seems to be a reminder. A reminder of a life full of fear and uncertainty. I think fondly of simpler times, but there’s one thing I’m sure of: 2020 made…
