Right or Left?

Today's verse comes from Isaiah 30:21, which says: "Your Own ears will hear Him. Right behind you a voice will say, 'This is the way you should go,' whether to the right or to the left." This is the verse that appeared to me day after day as I fasted and prayed, seeking God's will for my life.  Inside, I knew where He wanted me to go, but this verse offered reassurance that what I felt in my heart was the Holy Spirit calling.

This all just…

Good Enough

All of my life, I've struggled feeling good enough. There have been times where I've been pretty confident and happy, felt pretty, skinny, good at something. But mostly...not good enough. And to be honest, I've felt okay lately. Not necessarily on top of things, but enough. Until yesterday. And I don't know exactly why or exactly when, or exactly what...but there it was again. Have you ever felt not good enough? Maybe it's that I'm in the process of putting together a book, and I'm unqualified. Or maybe that it's that I don't string my words together quite as beautifully…
