Seasoned and with Grace

“Let your speech always be with Grace, seasoned with salt…” Colossians 4:6

Your words don’t have to be bland, but they should always be kind so that everyone you talk to might feel the grace of God.

Psalm 91:4

It’s nice to be reminded that there’s more than just blessings and lessons waiting in my Father’s arms. Like any parent, there’s always strength and comfort too! (Psalm 91:4)

31 Thursdays!

Proverbs 31

Far Above Rubies

There are few women who understand their own worth but God knows. A woman worth more than rubies is not just rare because there are so few of them, she is rare because she is like a buried treasure, hidden and unknown.

If every woman knew her true value, what a beautiful thing that would be! Maybe even a little frightening too!

Designed to be of greater value than the rarest of gems, what a tragic sadness that so many of us see ourselves as simple as sand and look for our worth in other ways. Our looks, our words, our actions, our possessions, the people we spend our time with, the things we spend our time doing, things we think add value but add camouflage instead.

God sees our true value no matter how many things we bury it under and we need to trust in Him to show us how we can see it too. Let Him be our map and compass to find our very own buried treasure in ourselves!

Wednesday’s Women



There are times in our lives where the only thing we can think to do is pray but the book of Esther reminds us what prayer can do for us.  Her story of love, faith, grace and courage is inspiring and has a happy ending.

Knowing all she could do was pray, she asked all those around her to fast and pray with her. Her prayers gave her strength, her faith gave her purpose and her courage saved her people.

When it feels like all you can do is pray, perhaps that’s just what you need to do first and the rest will come.

“Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”  Esther 4:14

Tuesday’s Truth

Ephesians 4:17

“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ has forgiven you.”


be kind


Be kind, even when you’re right!

None of us deserve the love and kindness God gives us so being kind to only those who actually deserve it might be harder than just being kind as often as we can.

The days we can make Jesus look good to anyone who does not know Him is a great day indeed!




Manic Monday

Jesus strength

Philippians 4:13

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”


It’s Monday again, crazy, busy, frustrating, never-ending Monday!  Just remember that no matter what your plans are for the day, God’s in control so take a deep breath and repeat after me.  Jesus gives me strength! Praise the Lord!
