Pieces of Trust

I subscribe to many ’email inspirations,’ they are reminders to start your day blessed.  Today I was inspired by “truth.”  It is a meaningful piece, I pray it inspires you as well! “Trust and rest when all around thee Puts thy faith to sorest test; Let no fear or foe confound thee, Wait for GodContinue reading “Pieces of Trust”

Pieces of Clarity

There are many days as a believer that we stumble and fall.  Maybe more stumbling and falling than we care to admit, and sometimes we just have to sit with the confusion until we have clarity.  It’s not often (and usually not) a lightening bolt or gigantic billboard from God.  I believe personally, when theContinue reading “Pieces of Clarity”

Pieces of Grief

The holidays tend to bring a mix of sadness and joy.  We mourn the loss of those we have loved, that are no longer here to celebrate familiar traditions.  We delight in the knowledge that we will be reunited again, but today, it hurts.  Our heart is sad, the grief sometimes unspoken.  But your heavenlyContinue reading “Pieces of Grief”

Pieces of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is certainly one of the hardest acts and emotions to live with.  We withhold it from others, yet our heavenly Father forgives us for EVERY thing we do or say.  Period.  Regardless of….!  Because…..!  It’s their fault….! Psalm 25:6-7  Overlook my youthful sins, O Lord! Look at me instead through eyes of mercy and forgiveness,Continue reading “Pieces of Forgiveness”

Pieces of Thanksgiving

In a few days, we will celebrate Thanksgiving.  Perhaps we will share a meal with family and friends.  What are you thankful for? I see so many parallels in my past life and now.  Except now, I am grateful for all of it.  The hard, hurtful times along with the fun and happy.  I believeContinue reading “Pieces of Thanksgiving”

Pieces of Calm

We do not have to sit idly by waiting for the storm, it’s okay, really; perfectly okay to have periods of calm, without expectation of the hammer dropping or circumstances changing. Psalm 107:29  He calms the storm and stills the waves. Daniel 10:19  “God loves you very much,” he said; “don’t be afraid! Calm yourself;Continue reading “Pieces of Calm”

Pieces of Patience

Frustration is a sign that you are doing the work; instead of God.  You cannot act independent of God, He needs to lead the way.  Wait on God.  Pray, meditate, fast, believe.  The battle is already won!  Think of Job, everything was taken from him; his animals, possessions, all of his children, yet he didContinue reading “Pieces of Patience”

Bold Pieces

I believe it’s incredibly important to research and understand what you believe; particularly if it comes from habit or “how you were raised.”  For many, many years I’ve described my spiritual beliefs as a “patchwork quilt” believing a little of this and a little of that, but not committing to any one belief.  And usingContinue reading “Bold Pieces”

Prayerful pieces

Welcome to the very first post in “The Pieces” blog!  I am to remind you that I am merely a vessel, not a scholar, not an educator and most certainly, not an expert in religion, philosophy or any other higher truth, only what I believe to be true and what I am led to write. Continue reading “Prayerful pieces”
