While catching up over lunch with a good friend today, we both discovered we had the same courtship rule; we would never date younger men.

When asked why I felt that way, I automatically responded, "Older men are just more mature".
Intuitively, she concluded, "Hmm, so it isn't really about their age, it's about their matur...

💗 You have grown in love:
when you don't cry BECAUSE OF others,
Instead you cry FOR them (Dan Mohler)

💗 A way to help gauge if I'm responding with complaint or intercession. It's growing in compassion, the capability to see past myself, and have some awareness of what is happening around me.

💗 A promise in God's word which I can cling to when I feel overwhelmed.

📖 Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.
(Psalm 55:22 NIV)

🔥 When you choose to stand with Jesus and what He says over your situation, you can go through your fiery conditions and have no smell of smoke on you. The following biblical narrative is a reminder to me that trials and bad circumstances can provide me with a unique opportunity to trust God and watch Him move.

📖 There's an account in Daniel 3,...

🤹‍♀️ Life can get so busy. Juggling my current responsibilities has stretched my days thin, even though I want to pull over, take random rest stops to reconnect with community. Homeschooling & raising 2 high school teenagers as a single mom while trying to build 2 home-based businesses is not for the faint of heart.

🤯 By the time I'm done teachi...

💗 Love this version of His word
Psalm 136 The Message (MSG)

136 1-3 Thank God! He deserves your thanks.
His love never quits.
Thank the God of all gods,
His love never quits.
Thank the Lord of all lords.
His love never quits.

4-22 Thank the miracle-working God,
His love never quits.
The God whose skill formed the cosmos,
His love never quits.

📖 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
(Proverbs 3:5‭-‬6 NKJV) {Footnotes for Prov. 3:6 reads: "Or make smooth or straight your paths"}

🤔 How many times in the day do we stop to acknowledge God, whether it's asking His thoughts o...

👶 In 2004, the birth of our second child led Scott & I into prayer seeking direction for this new season. During prayer, we felt peace about Scott taking parental leave from work. We felt not to tell anyone about our needs during this time & trust God. We had an opportunity: learn a facet of God’s nature, Jehovah Jireh, which means “The Lord will...

🌈  As the clock read 11:11 am, my promise scripture Hebrews 11:11 came to mind, "By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised."

🌈 I believe God gives us all promise scriptures to guide us through every season of life....

🏆 Slow and steady wins the race

🐢🐇 "The Tortoise and the Hare" is one of Aesop's Fables. The story concerns a Hare who ridicules a slow-moving Tortoise. Tired of the Hare's arrogant behavior, the Tortoise challenges him to a race. The hare soon leaves the tortoise behind and, confident of winning, takes a nap midway through the race. When the Ha...

I wish I knew then all I've learned now. It's too bad I had spent my marriage choosing petty grievances over mercy, impatience over grace, and self-preservation over love. My late husband would have benefit from my current love journey.

Do you remember those growth spurt years? You'd be brutally awakened, middle of the night, by excruciating calf cr...

🤔 A good friend asked me, "Elsa, does trusting God really work?"

👉 Trusting God for His solution always works, but trusting God for your solution never works. If you fill in the blank with your own answer then God cannot fill in the blank with His, because it's already been filled.
