You're Already Making Changes: Intertwining Your Faith with Everyday Life

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Have you ever taken a moment to reflect on your life, starting from birth? We experience so many challenges in life, starting with coming into the world. After birth, the challenges keep coming, from cutting your first teeth to walking, being potty trained, learning your letters and numbers, attending kindergarten, through learning how to ride your first bike. There were so many things to achieve by the age of six. You went from kindergarten to elementary, through middle school, junior high, then high school, and all the accomplishments in between. Sometimes it was easy and fun, other times challenging, but in the end, you did it. And just as you have made it through those earlier years, you'll be able to make it through the next season of your life.

In young adulthood, you’re possibly working or leaving home for college. Some will get married and/or have children. Life comes with endless possibilities and choices. It's up to you which road you'll travel. Either way, you'll make some good choices and some that aren't so great. They're all fine just as long as you can learn from and recover from the decisions you make. Regardless of what stage of your life you meet Christ, he has been with you every step of the way. Even now, He is with you.

Looking back, I can see where God was present in my life, although I was oblivious that he was. We don't always see it at the time that it's happening, but sometimes He gives us glimpses as we go through. I've learned that it's easier for me to see Him as I've gotten older, especially in the lives of those around me. When talking with my daughter, I can see God with her as she experiences being a young adult. She'll ask, “really, Mommy? Is that Him?” To which, I reply, yes, and then proceed to tell her what I see. So, we all have our journeys to take. I'm praying for all ages, from babies to young adults that God will keep us safe, protect our minds, and that our Father will open our eyes so we may see Him in all areas of our lives.

In Jesus' name, amen!

  • Seek God. “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.Proverbs 8:17 KJV

  • He is always with us. “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:20 KJV

  • You'll make it. “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10 KJV

By doing these things…over time, I’ve been learning how to incorporate Christ into every area of my life.

Below are two books that God has inspired me to write. "The Flip Side" and "Blinded By Sight: The Heart Matters" both available now.

So… what’s this book about?

“The Flip Side” depicts the possible feelings and emotions of lesser-known Biblical characters as they navigated their lives in the shadows of the more popular characters in the Bible. While the Bible gives us snippets of their stories, we are usually left in the dark about their true motives, desires, and thoughts concerning the situations they are in. However, one certainty is that despite how little we know about these characters, they were often the catalysts to pivotal moments in the main characters’ lives.

So… what’s this book about?

Join me on a journey of self-discovery. “Blinded by Sight - The Heart Matters” is a compilation of short biblical devotions. These stories are not conclusive. They are depictions of how God is revealing my heart to me.

My prayer is, Lord, make it real for me, show me your heart, show me my heart, and give me the wisdom to change what hinders my relationship with you. I am learning that my perception is my biggest obstacle it affects my mind, what I think, and how I process my experiences. What I have experienced in my mind is expressed through my feelings and these experiences dictate my choices either consciously or subconsciously.

This devotional will allow you to explore and evaluate your past and present situations that have hindered you from seeing the heart of the matter. Simply put, look at the heart – it does matter. Your future depends on it!

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalms 34:4
