Trusting God's Leading Brenda Goodbye Devotion

Trusting God’s Leading

“Follow your dreams and go for it!” is what my Dad always used to say to me.  My Mom grew up near Luzon, Philippines and she used to talk to me about her adventures to the big city of Manilla.  My parents inspired me to travel, live life, and go on as many adventures as I can.  …

Cast Your Burdens On Your Father

How do we react when we feel overwhelmed by problems? How do we respond when we feel discouraged or hopeless?  This past week was especially tough on my family and yours. We all have the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Tropical Storm Ida, COVID-19, Afghanistan, and countless other things on our minds. This was amplified by seeing our…

Love One Another devotion

LOVE ONE ANOTHER

We all struggle sometimes, but isn’t it great when God shows up in the middle of it? One of my best friends, Tonya, lives in Texas and works several jobs to pay the bills. One of her side gigs is waitressing. The other day, she received a note with a pretty large tip and I wanted to share her…

Amid loss God is faithful devotion.

No Matter What We’ve Lost God is Faithful

No matter how much was lost, God’s promise to you is that He will work it all out. Sometimes it’s hard to see the good. I get that. I’ve had a lot of bad days (years even) and the only thing that’s gotten me through them all is focusing on the good. You know, I’m a silver lining…

Feeling a million miles away from God devotion.

Feeling A Million Miles Away from God?

The government has been taking photos of us. A few years ago, NASA’s Cassini Telescope snapped this photo of you and me, as the telescope approached Saturn. The brighter blue dot near the center of the photo is us – planet earth! It’s easy to look at a photo like this and be impressed with…

It's ok to fall apart devotional

It’s Okay to Fall Apart

Talk about gut-wrenching! Have you heard Ryan Stevenson’s song, “When We Fall Apart”? Every time it comes on, I cry! And since I’m listening to Star ALL DAY LONG, that’s a lot of crying. But… it’s a good cry. I’ve been thinking a lot about how society has taught us that we need to have it all together,…

From Mess to Message

From Mess to Message

If you know me, you know I love outdoor adventures! A few weeks ago, I decided to do a Tough Mudder! I am still bruised but it was so fun! If you aren’t aware, a Tough Mudder is an obstacle course in the mud! The idea is that it forces you to focus on teamwork, physical strength, and endurance in order to be successful.  One thing that is really awesome…

Skipping Stones & Changing Seasons

Skipping Stones & New Seasons

skipping stones the rings begin to touch as they fade That’s a little poem I jotted down while my daughter was skipping rocks across a little pond when she was maybe 5 or 6 years old? I remember thinking, “Oh, these moments go by so quickly in life…they fade so fast.” It’s my hope that…
