A Sweet Spot for the Soul

Do you ever feel like your soul is in a state of unrest? Something in you or around you is stealing your peace and you are distracted in your heart and head? Past regret, present hurt, doubt and discouragement, and future concern can steal our present moments. Heartstrings tethered to the cares of the world can steal our joy. But a soul that’s present in the presence of the Lord and anchored in Christ is an anchored soul, and we can go to a sweet spot in Him anytime, anywhere. Our souls can be at rest even when everything around us is in chaos. Do you want to go there?

When Jesus Shakes It Up

As Jesus and our Samaritan sister continue to chat, she still only sees the physical: her physical need for water, what is required in the physical to draw it and the fact Jesus does not have it! What He is saying that He is not saying is the well she’s drawing from is a well tradition and heritage, even religion. But even as deep as it is, it is not the source of living water. He is shaking things up and challenging all she has ever known, and she does not understand.

How Me?

In being exact, Jesus knows exactly the conversation that will engage us as He reveals Himself to us. His exchange with the Samaritan woman at the well continues as her question back to His request for a drink betrays her feelings about His unconventional ways. She asks “How me?” She can’t believe Jesus would be asking her, a Samaritan, for a drink! Is this sometimes how we think? We cannot imagine how it is possible that Jesus would seek us out, come to us, personally engage us in conversation and give us exactly what we need? That’s when Jesus reveals the questions she and we should really be asking.

Jesus Is Exact

When Jesus travels from Judea to Galilee, Samaria is not just the quickest, most direct route; it is also the route that will put Him at an exact place at an exact time to encounter the woman at the well. And it is a place of deep-seated historical, racial and religious tension. Yet Jesus chooses to go there. He ventures into controversial, unclean and undesirable territory to meet this one woman. Jesus will do the same thing for us!

Why Am I Never Satisfied?

Do you, like me, find yourself at least sometimes seeking temporary happiness from things that bring no lasting satisfaction? Jesus is the only one who can satisfy our soul needs for salvation, assurance, peace, security, significance, purpose, perfect love, perfect acceptance, perfect dependability, perfect trustworthiness, eternal presence, deep, abiding joy, unshakable hope, steady mercy, steady grace, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, discernment and so on. But don’t we all find ourselves attempting to draw from the wells of the world to quench spiritual thirst? And when we do, the thirst remains or returns? Come with me as we visit Jacob’s well with Jesus and the Samaritan woman and discover that Jesus will meet us at our exact place of need to reveal Himself as exactly what we need.

Steadfast Podcast: Sharing a Bit of My Story

Sharing a bit of my story on the Steadfast podcast with Casey Tate today! The stronghold of bulimia and a desire to cover self-disgust with a perfect image left me a broken, hurting mess, but God by His grace and faithfulness rescued me.

Or maybe you just love to hear the many ways the Lord moves in personal and profound ways to show Himself mighty to and in us. I’d love to share this story with you, as He has and He continues to teach me each day how to live free of the sin that once entangled me. It’s a story of the hope and redemption!

Life & Loss

When it hits me just how great it was to have my mom alive in this world, and my heart longs to have her here still, it is still hard. Thirteen years later and it is still hard. It hurts.

And knowing it’s not goodbye forever makes goodbye for now so much better! Have you lost a loved one? Are you facing the loss of someone you can’t imagine life without? It’s hard!
