Trying to Turn from Lost

Sometimes I don’t even know where to begin. Credit: Nick Page        There are either too many thoughts swirling inside my mind, or an absence of seemingly everything, save the echo of unattained wisdom. I have ignored so much potential throughout my life. A vibrant and eager encourager of others, I am motivationally …

Having All

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” II Corinthians 9:8, NIV ’84     I saw this verse on one of my coffee mugs sitting on countertop. I take this verse …

Fluctuations of a Path

I think Lisa-Jo is clairvoyant sometimes. I mean honestly, how does she KNOW the exact word sometimes to knock you back – speaking shards of relevance into your current situation?
