What do you see?

I have found myself reading the Old Testament prophets these past few months. King Solomon, the wisest man that will ever live, with Holy Spirit's leading, said there’s nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9). So I’ve been reading, searching, and asking for help. With the COVID-19 pandemic, another charged election year, and more horrific slayings of our black brothers, I want change. I need help. I crave wisdom. For what to do. What to say. What to pray.

Let Me See

I can hear my mom’s voice, “Kacey, let me see.” Whether it was a bee sting, a fresh splinter in my thumb, or a scraped-up knee, I’d hold it tucked…

One Accord

There’s a pizza place in town that Colin and I have enjoyed for years. We’ve been to several locations, gone with family and friends, had it delivered, dined in, mused over their interesting mix of sports and soap operas on the big screens. Did I mention that we’ve been going there for years? And I’ve discovered that I have been pronouncing their name completely wrong. Really wrong. Embarrassingly wrong.

Roots

How many times has a storm blown through, has life hit a hard season (whether that be tragedy, hardship, or the over-busy schedules), and we break away and attempt to carry on in our own strength? We might bloom for a bit, but it isn’t long before we wither and fade, are at our wit’s end, and say to a friend, “I can’t do this anymore.” We hear this a fair bit in prayer ministry...

Not Today

Lately I’ve been thinking about how my words and actions could be hurting others and playing into the enemy’s hands without me knowing it or having any awareness of what I’m doing. I’ve been on the receiving end of this, as we all have, knowing it wasn’t meant personally. But it still stings. Certainly the Holy Spirit is prompting me to confess, repent, and seek forgiveness. But I believe He’s also teaching me how I can live on mission as a daughter of the King and co-heir with Christ and take it a step or two further.

Muddy Words

Sometimes we speak curses over ourselves and others, and we have had curses spoken over us. I picture curses like words that are splattered on us, much like if you were standing by the street after a rainstorm and a car rushes by, spraying a puddle of muddy water all over you. Some of you know exactly what I am referring to, and others may be less convinced. Let me explain.
