I hope you had an amazing Mother’s Day! Mariah and I had a wonderful time speaking at the Mother/Daughter retreat at The Tuscarora Conference Center in Pennsylvania. The country side was so peaceful and the women precious!
Speaking of daughters, this month I have the honor of being on the cover of the Proverbs 31 Magazine with my daughters, Mariah and Madison. I thought I would share the article I wrote for this issue with you.
I was desperate. Instead of heading to the altar, I headed into heartache. A serious relationship ended, leaving me empty and alone. My heart was scared and scarred. Elevating that man to such a lofty place in my heart was a serious mistake. The cavity he left shocked me.
What could fill a hole that size? It had to be bigger than a man, or a career. Could Jesus offer that? Growing up, I knew Him as my shepherd, friend and Savior. But I felt I needed something more.
While moving boxes in my warehouse job, I cried out to God, asking Him to fill the cavern in my heart. I knew He could, I just didn’t know how or what that would look like. His Word promised that if I sought Him with all my heart, I would find Him. So I began my pursuit.
During my quest a verse changed my perspective on God and life: “I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the LORD” (Hosea 2:19-20). For more, click here….
