I feel you. It’s not easy when you feel like you’ve been overlooked and tossed to the side. I’ve been in this discouraging place too. But God never overlooks us. In fact, He has a great plan for our lives even when we can’t see it.

In this episode I discuss 3 reasons why things do not go according to our plans.

Thanks for joining us. Follow us on ins...

I thought God screwed up when he made me. Here's a snapshot of where Ms. Insecurity and I have traveled through life...

For most of my life Ms. Insecurity was right by my side.  I think she was connected to my hip.  Seeing how I was given up at birth, that one small thing seemed to tell me who I was.  It shaped me.  It gave me my sense of self-worth (or lack there of it!).  And it didn't help any that I didn&apos...

I’ve been married for 25 years now and not once has my Beloved received a paycheck. There has been no income that I could count on and budget for, and no dependency of what he’ll bring in each month. All this equates to me living with no financial stability throughout our marriage. It’s always been this way because he’s been self-employed his entire working life.

Here’s what I said to my new groom about my new reality:

As a believer in Jesus Christ, I should exude joy and peace but those attitudes go straight out the window when I'm overwhelmed and stressed. And the last thing I want to be is a stressed out follower of Jesus because that's not a good witness. Jesus was a man of action yet he was never stressed. What was it that I was missing? What did I need to learn to change my ways?

I remember reading about the Proverbs 31 woman when ...

I’m not a naturally upbeat person who’s got a pep in her step. Melancholy is more my bent. So the idea of being a joyful person eluded me for many years when I was a young Christ-follower. Coming out of a deep dark pit of atheism I had my fair share of depression struggles and suicidal thoughts, but once I found the Light my heart was filled with hope.

But one day, it felt like the light went out.

Depression has been my uninvited tra...

As the unexpected tears welled up in my eyes, I mourned our losses.  The loss of my health, the loss of our time, the loss of our home and business, the loss of relationships, the loss of our dreams. Not only was I fighting back the tears but also the bitterness that was seeping into my heart. I was trying not to be angry at God for all that we've gone through.  I knew I was on a slippery slope.

Every person has diffi...

The sting of rejection. Every soul has experienced it, including Jesus. The shame and grief we feel when we're not accepted by another can leave our souls wounded. Our insecurities start to seep out as a result and then we want to retreat from others. But, as believers in Jesus Christ, we are not called to live like this.


If you've been rejected like I have and you too want to hide back in your shell, then listen to this ...

If you don’t know my testimony here’s the short version.  I was married, then divorced, then lived with a man, plus I was sexually involved with other men before I came to Christ. And I embraced atheism.  So with all that being said, I’m very familiar with the shackles of shame.

I refer to my past lifestyle similar to Rahab’s.  Although I didn’t get paid money for what I did, what I was looking for in return was being love...
