A Healing Journey Comes to an End….

Today is a bittersweet day for me. Today I am turning over a new leaf and recognizing the goodness of God. I started this blog on November 27, 2015…. and 99 posts later, here we are! I guess this makes 100! 😉 Restorative Grace Ministries was an outlet God gave me to work through, process,…

Sometimes we Just Need to Ask

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm…

Is it Your Move?

“The strategy of Chess consists of setting and achieving long-term positioning advantages during the game – for example, where to place different pieces – while tactics concentrate on immediate manoeuvre. These two parts of the chess-playing process cannot be completely separated, because strategic goals are mostly achieved through tactics, while the tactical opportunities are based…

Encourage

I was reminded today of the importance of our words and the weight they carry. It’s been a busy month for this girl which is why I haven’t had as much time to blog and share what Gods been sharing with me. I’ve been so busy that I haven’t been awesome at staying in touch…

The Perfect Pursuit

The Billion-dollar industry (Hollywood) of sophisticated storytelling is the biggest imagination controlling business in the world today. If the actors themselves (i.e. the late Heath Ledger), aware that they are playing roles, are unable to break free from the media and the message, how is it possible for the viewer to be freed from the…

Hope Sees the Best!

  “Hope is the natural cure for unhappiness.” Joyce Meyer, Get Your Hopes Up!   I had stopped hoping. There was so much ‘hard’ happening in every corner of my life that my heart stopped hoping. Any glimmer of hope that I had previously was diminished by life’s events. Things that I had dreamed and…

365 days- 365 new chances…

  As you enter into the New Year I just want to remind you that whatever you do, whatever you feel called to, whatever you begin you are going with God. He is there to help you through hard times, grief, pain, joy, happiness and unexpected news. You do not need to be afraid of…

To Be Broken for God…

The first time it happened to me was a few weeks ago while I was reading from the book of Hosea. I cried. I cried for Hosea and for the calling God gave him. I felt the anguish of a tough, heartbreaking decision. I think that all the years of studying the Bible, being tested…

Purpose

Purpose noun the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. Purpose. Oh how I have grappled with this. Why? Why did this happen? What purpose was there in this for me? How could God let this happen? Honestly, I don’t know. I’m not God. But for whatever reason knowing…

Inactivity… or simply waiting?

  There is a change in the air… it happens after a season has served its purpose. Personally I have felt it more this week than I have in a few years. About two years ago this time I entered into a new unclear season. I had just arrived back from Nova Scotia and felt…

Seasons: Revisited

“Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 NIV We just spent the last 28 weeks- that’s right 28 weeks, wow, it’s been a…

Seasons: A Time for… Peace!

An Introduction to this Season… “When your soul is resting, your emotions are okay, your mind is okay, and your will is at peace with God, and not resisting what He’s doing.” Joyce Meyer  The first time I really understood what it was like to live in peace was when I was listening to a…
