Prayer-n-Truth List for Between 5-0

Title graphic for 5-0

As I finish a meal, anxiety in various irritating forms rises up and churns around in me, niggling at me and remaining until it’s time to eat again. So pretty much when I’m not eating!  I don’t like admitting that as it’s downright embarrassing! And sad! But  ::alas::  it’s where I’m at. However, that said, […]

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Morning Manna

When I wake up in the morning, I am groggy and fuzzy-brained. As I’m aging (I’m 67), I’m getting achier and achier when I wake up in the morning, even after sleeping well. In fact, often it’s especially after sleeping well because of having been in  one position for a long time. It takes a […]

“The Hardest Easiest Thing I’ve Ever Done” ~ What kind of crazy oxymoron is this? Let me explain… It’s taken me 50 years to come to the end of myself. My food addiction started when I was 8 years old. I remember going on diets with Mom who was trying to help me shed pounds. […]

A Way to Remember What I Too Easily Forget

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - A Way to Remember What I

On one of our small-group coaching calls we talked about how easily we forget the good things we know and hear about the Lord. For example, we forget about the fact that God wants to: fellowship with us… relieve the weightiness on our hearts… guide us when we are clueless as to what to do […]

I have taken in so many wonderful tips and ideas from Thin Within over the years. But I have a hard time actually implementing some of them at the moment I most need them, especially if I’m dealing with something hard – or a pile-up of  “something hard’s”! You know what, I don’t even have […]

Open Heart, Open Hands

TW GRAPHIC - Open hand and heart2 - Kelly

One thing I noticed is that, at different stages and seasons of life, I find myself saying to people “I wish I had known then what I know now.”  But the reality is that, even if I had been told some great words of wisdom or knowledge “back then,” I would not have been ready […]

Walking Out Our Freedom

I looked back at when I was having panic attacks and had a very candid talk with myself today about them. God told me to stop watching all those horrible murder shows on the ID channel that I was watching regularly. I didn’t see anything wrong with them, but it was harmful to my spirit. […]

I have become quite a fan of specialty coffee! Peppermint mochas, in particular. Iced or hot, both are at the very top of my list of “Ways to Pamper Myself.” Massages, manicures, facials, and pedicures are also on that list, too!

Feasting on God and His Word

E0209B4A-BDD6-4DA7-829D-5E3F233E7D11

This morning I read from Matthew 5:6: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled.” Not only does He satisfy, He blesses us as well. This does not come effortlessly. It is so easy to get busy and slack on reading God’s Word. It is worth the effort, and […]
