There’s More

Dear Reader, I’ve moved on. Seasons come and seasons go and this page has accomplished its purpose. But I’m not done. Follow my other page for updates and stories and life lessons. Thanks for your support during this part of my life- The Lord knows I needed it. See you on the other side. -B

I Am Free

And just like that, it’s over. A year ago I was on the outside looking in, yearning for something I had seen most of my life but had never been able to reach. Standing on the edge of a possibility I landed face first in a promise. A promise that He would be faithful to…

Focus Point

If it’s true that perception is reality, then what are we seeing? What are choosing to look at? While it’s important to be conscious of what we do because people do watch us, it’s when we focus on the wrong things that we go astray. In children’s church, we aren’t allowed to tickle or hold…

Joy of the Lord

Some days are murky. There is a grayness that touches everything, robbing the world of life. Colors are dimmer and the light doesn’t shine as bright and sometimes you forget that it was ever vibrant to begin with. If the world were music, today would be grunge. If life were a metaphor compared to mountains…

Oaks of Righteousness

July is quickly approaching and the closer it gets, the more anxiety I face. I’m scared. I’m scared that a boy will come along and undo everything that this year has done.  I’m scared that I’ll forget everything that has happened to me over the course of 365 days. I’m scared that I’ll shift my…

Lifting Darkness

What do you do when you feel you have no purpose? When people who are just like you are killing themselves because they can’t take it anymore and there’s a voice in your head telling you that you’re next? You’ve lived your entire life fighting demons and voices in your head and you wake up…

She Is Clothed

Life change happens in small groups. This is something that Church of the Highlands harps on over and over again so it sounds so cliche, but it is so true. When you’re able to take that mask off and be who you truly are, as dirty as you may be, it frees you. I used…

Ground Lost

None of us are perfect. No matter how mature our relationship gets with the Lord, we will always sin. It’s a part of being human and having flesh. It’s our response to our sins that shifts our relationship with Him from one side to the other. We see our sins as sky scrapers. Lying isn’t as…

Promises

There are dreams that live inside of our hearts, some that we can feel and some that are so much bigger than us that we don’t even know that they’re there. They beat in rhythm with our hearts and grow along with our bones, strengthening not with the milk we drink but with the things we…

Not My Own

I hate looking at myself sometimes. I hate what I do to myself, how I categorize myself, even how I treat myself. Like I’m not worth anything more than a side chick, or a go to for someone who just doesn’t want to be single. I let myself continue to play those games when I…

Pillars Of Salt

So what happens when we accept Jesus. After we’ve surrendered our lives and realized who He really is. What happens in the quiet hours of the night when temptations sit on your chest like an elephant? They promised that God would be with you always but here you are, feeling lonely and desperate for attention….

Perfect Love

Recently I was asked, after everything that I’ve been through, how can I trust God. In that moment, laying under the stars and feeling completely wrapped up in my Savior’s love and being completely in awe at what I was looking at, I couldn’t give them an answer. All I could think of was how in…
