Being Still Before God

Being Still Before God

BEING STILL BEFORE GOD I think that one of the most valuable & healthy things we can do is to stop amidst our chaos & still our hearts. To remind ourselves that God is with us…the one who formed the universe, and who loves us…

Living Beyond Me

Living Beyond Me

We live in such a “me” centered culture. So much of our lives we spend thinking about how we can make our lives easier, how we can be happier, how we can get what we want. We spend our days focusing on ourselves, with little…

Lock Arms with Your Children

Lock Arms with Your Children

When my kids were young, I used to get so stressed out when we had to deal with a sin issue in their life. I stressed because I wanted better for them, & I just wanted them to choose well. Now…I understand that God is…

Guard Your Heart

Guard Your Heart

Ladies, I don’t know about you, but this scripture hits home for me, and has been something that has brought so much life and freedom to my heart! We need to understand that WE HAVE THE POWER TO PROTECT OUR HEARTS from things like fear, self doubt, anxiety, unforgiveness, & bitterness. We do not have to buy in to, dwell on, or entertain any of these life sucking things. That’s why God gave Solomon this beautiful bit of wisdom that we can glean from.

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

Proverbs 4:23

If your heart feels burdened or heavy today…..know that you can take charge over these life crippling issues. Go to God’s word, look up scriptures that address your struggles. See what God says about fear, or whatever it is that you find yourself dealing with.
God wants us to place His word over our heart….so that it is guarded from things that would try to destroy us. He wants us to experience the victory that comes from applying His truth to our lives!

It Only Takes a Spark

It Only Takes a Spark

This was one of my favorite hymns growing up as a kid. It didn’t take rocket science, even as a child, for me to appreciate the imagery this song creates…..and the truth that this statement holds, is still just as powerful and relevant today. “It…

Build Your House

Build Your House

In all of our life’s pursuits, in all of our searching out for knowledge, and in our desire to do great things that make a difference, seeking out how to build our homes should be at the top of the list. In our homes, hearts…

His Grace Is Sufficient

His Grace Is Sufficient

My husband is a firefighter and due to a recent storm that hit our area, he was at the fire station for an extended period of time. During his time away, I was thanked for being a “first responder’s wife”……one of the many hats I wear.  I’m a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a niece, a friend, a singer, and a Physical Therapist just to name a few.  That’s a lot to keep up with! There are days that I feel  like an acrobat,  trying to keep fragile plates spinning on tiny little sticks, running back and forth wildly to make adjustments, not wanting any to fall. Failure just isn’t an option, right?!?!

For so long, I wanted to be perfect in every area that I have an influence in, but is that really possible?  If you have ever been there, or are there now, you understand how exhausting this can be.

Ladies, on my own, I can’t do it…believe me, I’ve tried! It’s not possible in any way, shape, or form to do one thing perfectly, never mind perfection in every role or responsibility I have in my life.

Through my blossoming faith in Christ, I’ve learned that my most important role is being a daughter of the King!

He’s the only one that walked this Earth, who has done anything perfectly. He sacrificed it all, knowing that we would fall short.  What a blessing for us! Through his grace, and through my love for all that He is, I can fulfill each role I’ve been given. I won’t be perfect, and you know what….that’s ok!

2 Corinthians 12:9 says:

 And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

 

I instead, will strive to do each task to the best of my ability, and trust that through His GRACE, and His grace alone, I will bear good fruit.  He will meet me where I am in every situation I face.  Since I’ve grown so much in this particular area, I’m much more at peace in the midst of the chaos of life.  What a wonderful feeling!

God gives us His amazing grace, not so we can be perfect, but so we can succeed in everything He’s called us to do.  This is what the grace of God is, not just for me, but what He graciously extends to you.  So today, what area are you feeling weak and exhausted in?  Where are you functioning in your own strength?   What plates are you trying to juggle?  Ask Christ to meet you, and watch as He pours His grace on you, in every area of your life.

In His Grace,

Kaelynn

Yes, You Can Homeschool!!

Oh my goodness, the fear that I had when I started out on my home school journey! “My children’s entire well being is resting on my shoulders.” “What if I don’t have the skills for the job.” “What if I FAIL!” It was such a…
