I have a tendency to fall into a trap of believing that because something turned out one way before it’ll be that way every time.
How many times have I faced situations that seem to come at me in cycles? A relationship conflict, a misunderstanding, a problem that seems void of solutions. How often do I face these with the same expectations each time assuming because it turned out one way in the past, it’s destined to turn out the same way again?
How quickly do I allow discouragement to lead my thoughts rather than hope? How often do I give fear the freedom to speak when I should allow trust to do the silencing on my behalf?
Join me today where I share a story of how God led me to believe through the lens of hope in an everyday situation.

These nevers sometimes are spoken only inside the quiet of our own hearts. Yet, the Lord hears them.
I wonder if it’s His kindness towards us that draws us to face the nevers we proclaim with such staunch boldness.
I wonder if the nevers I proclaim are sometimes the voice of my own fear? My pride? My will? My way? My desires and likes.
I forget He is so good. When He stands me face to face with my spoken or heart-muttered “I’ll never”, it’s because He is good beyond my wildest ponderings.
Let me share some of my nevers with you. I trust as I share my stories with you, you will find your own stories tucked inside.
We are tempted to focus so much on sacrificing our lives for the sake of others that we actually neglect ourselves. We fall in bed exhausted, run ourselves ragged straight into the doctor’s office, or simply feel we have no time, energy, or money left after we’ve given to everyone else.
I’ve discovered that investing in myself is actually not selfish like I once believed. It is life-giving to me and to everyone I do life with.
There are 5 key ways I’m finding help me invest well in myself so I can offer the best of me to the world around me.
Before I share 5 ways to invest in you, I may need to remind you why you are worth it.
