Blog Church photoMy brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

-James 1:2-3

There is one more thing which needs to be said… The testing of your faith produces patience AND a very large appetite! Why did James fail to mention this?

I indulge in fast food on a very rare basis but it’s been a Taco Bell kind of day, friends.

I have experienced quite a week of decision making and difficult steps. These steps are leading me forward, and God seems to be carefully guiding the motion. However, they are also moving me out of where I’ve been.

I think.

Or maybe not.

It’s tough.

Change is hard, even when God seems to be orchestrating it.

Or is He? Now do you see why I need you to pass me the chocolate?

My friend recently said to me, “If this keeps up, you are going to have to rename your blog from A Girl on the Doorstep to A Girl in the Hallway…”

I’ve been wandering around in the hallway smack dab between where I’ve been and where I’m apprehensively moving toward. I’ve been hesitant and God has been reminding me of James 1: 2-3.

Doorsteps are usually for waiting. We wait in expectation of a new door to open leading us to the next big thing. But what happens when you are not waiting for the next big thing and are pushed in that direction anyway? I’ve been thinking about that question all week, and I think the answer is trust. I just need to trust…

I told you that my one word for the year is brave.


Ready and


Vying for

Everything God wants for me.

When the Lord gave me that acronym, I wasn’t expecting this giant change would be taking place in my life.  The words available and everything are huge. When God gives you a word, you better believe He has a reason.

I will be celebrating my birthday on Sunday. With a new year and new age comes big change. I’m sad, apprehensive, and excited all rolled into one.

God is in control, and I will trust.

What about you? Do you have big changes happening? Are you wandering in a hallway rather than waiting on a doorstep?

I have a song for you to listen to.

I want to see you be brave! Just remember, my definition is to be Bold Ready and Available Vying for Everything God wants in your life! And even though the songs says, “Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out…” Remember to speak in love. Always.

Here’s to forward motion, friends!

Have a beautiful weekend!
