You are not alone – God is with you always. He is your rock. Your steady hand. Your should to cry on. Lean on Him and let Him carry you to solid ground.

How could this happen to me?

I had been injured before. I had played through the pain. But this was unlike anything else. It’s the start of the season and I was in my element. Enjoying every minute of being back on the court. That was until the third set of our first home match on September 8th, 2015. I get […]

I thought this would be easy…

“Oh that comes so easily for me, I really don’t have to try” I can’t even keep track of how many times I have said this very statement, and it’s multiple variations.. It’s like I have lost touch with what it means to work hard for something. To have your sights set on a dream […]

Rolling Around in My Own Self-Pity

We often say “Oh yeah I’m gonna start being nicer tomorrow” or “I’m gonna start praying next Monday, this week is just going too […]

We all have those days where we want to say “please don’t make me adult today”. We just simply can’t fathom the thought of getting out of bed to tackle that daunting to-do list. It’s normal for us to feel like this occasionally. We are human, not super human. However, it’s when we give into […]

Oh No She Didn’t…

Judgement. We have all made one on someone else, and we have felt the judgement of others. But why do we do this? I am quick to judge, but even quicker to say “don’t judge me”. If we don’t like the harsh glare of others when we walk into the room followed by the comment […]

Lovestruck

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day coming up tomorrow, I figured I would let you know that you are loved! But the love I’m talking about doesn’t require a special someone to buy chocolates for.. Probably the most quoted verse in the Bible, John 3:16 says “for God so loved the world that he gave […]
