I am a wife, mother of two boys and passionate pursuer of Jesus and in the middle of the crazy, the busy, the commitments and all the responsibilities of life, I am constantly chasing after the One my soul loves.
My personal story is one of redemption and healing but most of all, restoration and re-establishing who I was created to be in Christ. Despite being raised in a Christian home, growing up in church from day one (okay, maybe day three?) and always having a sensitive heart towards the Lord, I still managed to find my way deep into the world as a young teen and spent years even into my young adulthood searching for fulfillment, living “free” (which turned out was actually not so free, indeed). Then, because of some very serious health issues, I desperately returned to my faith in God and though I didn’t deserve it, He in all his grace and mercy was right there ready to receive me back. From that moment on, He has proven to be exactly who He says He is: the one who loves me in fullness, the hope that anchors and never disappoints, a mighty Savior, the God who heals and the one who makes my way straight and steady.
The health issues that the Lord rescued me from were simply the catalyst that drew me back into the heart of the Father. He has since encountered me in such a mighty and powerful way and has led me on a journey that has forever changed my life, healing me of matters far beyond an outward, physical disease. He IS the God of a full and complete work and has done more for me than I ever even knew to ask him for, restoring me from the inside out.
In faith, I want to share my heart and experiences with you, trusting and knowing that the work that Jesus has done in me He will do for you also because He loves us all just the same. I pray that my words will uplift you, encourage you and bring hope into your circumstances, and that through the power of the Holy Spirit, you too will be transformed, set free and begin to walk out the abundant life Jesus came to give you.
I have truly been transformed by the goodness of God and I plan to spend my days giving out all He has so freely given me, so let’s do this journey of life together. I can’t wait to connect with you, to share my stories with you and likewise to hear yours, as we both continue to grow into who God has called us to be. Friends, it is my sincere prayer that you would prosper in all things, mind, body and soul, and that your spirit would also be strengthened by the only One who is able to do abundantly more than we could ever ask, think, imagine or dream.
He can and will do it. I am living proof. He pulled me out of the miry clay, the sinking sand and that pit of despair I once was in and He set my feet firmly upon a rock, and that rock is Jesus. He has rebuilt the very foundation of my life and He continues to settle me, with every passing day, deep down, securely into that solid foundation. He has caused me to rise up into who I was created to be in Christ, and walk in it. I AM a daughter of the Most High God, a victorious overcomer, a joint heir with Christ, and one who has access to a very rich and beautiful inheritance- life in abundance, life to the full, life to overflowing, all of which is available in the here and now. I was created on purpose for a purpose and I am walking in that purpose, which is all to glorify Him. So grab hold of this with me. It’s all yours for the taking, friend. Great is His faithfulness. Yes, great is His faithfulness.
I waited and waited and waited some more;
Patiently, knowing God would come through for me.
Then, at last, He bent down and listened to my cry.
He stooped down to lift me out of danger,
From the desolate pit I was in,
Out of the muddy mess I had fallen into.
Now He’s lifted me up into a firm, secure place,
And steadied me while I walk along His ascending path.
A new song for a new day rises up in me
Every time I think about how He breaks through for me!
Ecstatic praise pours out of my mouth until
Everyone hears how God has set me free.
Many will see His miracles; they’ll stand in awe of God,
And fall in love with Him!
