Letting God into Your Mess

Letting God into the Mess

Life is unpredictable, chaotic, challenging, unexpected. That’s a given. Life is messy.  In a single day you may run into a disgruntled cashier at the grocery store, settle yet another dispute between your toddlers, deal with family who is hurt that you don’t spend enough time with them, appease a boss who doesn’t care that your son has a soccer game and feels that work is more important than family, and look at the scale and realize you gained weight instead of lost it, not to mention that finances are tight, your car is on the fritz, and your best…

The Quest for Peace in Uncertain Times

The Quest for Peace in Uncertain Times

When we moved to Georgia a few years ago, my parents dug a well on their property, and a few months ago, we split the cost to have a pump installed and water lines run to each of our homes. This seemed like a good way to save a little money each month by not using city water, and I figured the well water would taste better. Unfortunately, after just a few days on the well, we noticed that the water tasted somewhat metallic, so we switched back to city water. Needless to say, I was a little frustrated since…

Strength to Survive the Hard Days

Strength to Survive the Hard Days

My husband started cycling about 15 years ago, and he and my cousin convinced me to try it about 10 years ago. At first, I hated it, but it quickly grew on me, and now I enjoy riding. It’s great exercise, and it’s good bonding time with my hubby. What started out as 10 to 20-mile rides when I first began have slowly increased to 20 to 40 miles for an average ride. Two years ago my brother, who also cycles, invited Randy and me to complete the Six Gap Century. It’s a 104-mile course that climbs more than 11,200…

Everything We Need, From Worry to Faith

Everything We Need, From Worry to Faith

As a little girl, I would sit on my bed feeling completely helpless against the stream of worries that would flow through my mind. I worried about being kidnapped, about my parents dying, about catching some horrible disease, and about tornadoes and hurricanes and alligators and sharks (I lived in Florida). I remember crying one night and my mom trying to console me. She told me God was with me and that I needed to trust him. She told me I didn’t need to worry about anything because God promised to be with me. I vaguely remember her telling me the Bible…

The High Calling of Motherhood

The High Calling of Motherhood

A few years ago while visiting my brother, I found myself in a room with fifteen strangers who were part of a Bible study group my brother taught. Most of them were regulars, but there were a few visitors, so my brother had planned an ice breaker of sorts that went along with the lesson. He asked each person in the room to share one thing they admired about the person sitting to their left. Fortunately, I was sandwiched in between two people I knew—my stepdad was to my right and my husband was to my left. My brother gave…
