Restart — September 7, 2019


I started a new YouVersion bible plan today called Restart. Here was the first day’s assignment:

  • Make a list of where you need to see your attitude change with God. Identify and list areas of sin, fear, rebellion, distrust and replace that with faith, promise, hope and gratitude through prayer
  • Make a list of major mistakes or shortcomings in the past year that you do not want to see repeated.
  • Talk to your spouse, parents, friends and Pastors to find our what they see about you that you do not see.

That was only the first day! Tough, right? I just journaled the first part of this exercise. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but it was a challenge. Reflecting on sin is hard. Coming to terms with weakness and fault is challenging. My list consisted of things like wanting control, not fully trusting, blaming myself, and impatience.

I also listed out how to replace my fears and faults with faith, His promises, and hope. This list was my favorite. Realizing that through it all, we’re not alone and that if we were perfect, we wouldn’t need Jesus. I’m grateful to have areas to improve and to know that we can always Restart.


Windy Wednesday — September 5, 2019

Windy Wednesday

So as you may or may not know, I live in Florida and this week it was all about hurricane Dorian. Schools, roads, bridges, libraries, and businesses closed. It’s been the big event here. All over the news and my neighborhood. We were all prepared to get a direct hit, but thanks to God for turning this monster storm to the North East. It truly was an answer to prayer.

It’s a great reminder to me that in the midst of our personal and seasonal life storms, we can do our best to be prepared, but ultimately, we have to trust and pray. Actually let me reverse that – PRAY and TRUST. We have to pray with the intention and belief that God is listening and working on our behalf. No matter the outcome, when we believe that His will is done, we can be okay with it. It’s not easy, but necessary in our walk of faith.

I’m currently on a faith walk. Work is scarce and finances make my head spin, but I know He is our provider.


Monday Meal — September 2, 2019

Monday Meal

I loved making August a fervent prayer month. I enjoyed discipling myself to Praise, Repent, Ask and Yes (proclaiming His word!).

Back to our regular scheduled programming. I didn’t have time to cook and photograph a new meal this week (due to hurricane Dorian heading our way) so I thought I’d give a shout out to one of my favorite recipes.

Taco Meatloaf:

I loved this recipe. I served it over Spanish rice (just a pre-packaged kind) and used the white cheddar organic Doritos in the meatloaf mix. Hubs requested additional Doritos on the side next time 😉


31! — September 1, 2019


Last day of fervent prayer month. It flew by. It was such a great daily reminder to reflect on all that there is to praise, repent, ask and yell YES about! Here we go:

P – praise

Thank you Lord for allowing this storm to turn East!

R – repent

Please forgive me for worrying about our finances and the future.

A – ask

I ask for this storm to continue moving away from land. Please protect us.

Y – yes

Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. – James‬ ‭5:13‬

P – thank you for getting me through this interview process!

R – forgive me for worrying about money.

A – I ask for my friends safety while they travel.

Y –

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? – Matthew‬ ‭6:25‬ ‭NIV‬‬
