More Tweets of late…



Forgiveness = more than sentimental. Cost? Patience, forbearance, giving up the “right” to exact penalty. It’s not automatic reconciliation.

The biblically chastised “fear of man” is more than a “Do Not.” Relinquishing others’ “good opinion” of u is 4 ur FREEDOM & true best self.

If u spend life in a false Role-Self trying 2please others, u lose the right 2b mad if ppl don’t know the real u. U risk not knowing urself.

LOVE is sacrificial, but “dying 2self” isnt a mandate always 2martyr ur core identity 2serve the demands of others. TRUTH is also a servant.

1thing Ive learnd about PRAYER: its @ least as much LISTENING as speaking. Recognizing the voice of our Shepherd takes TIME in his presence.

I used 2despair of ever discerning the Lord’s voice. But I found it’s often recognizable Scripture, & he often says what I DON’T want 2hear.

The CONVICTION of the Holy Spirit nvr sounds like condemnation. He is patient 2reveal my failings, &administers 2me w/GENTLENESS not threat.

Truth can be bold AND an act of Grace. Jesus knew who his enemies were, & he STILL knows who will yet repent. Be LED by HIS Spirit.

Ask ur spouse what they would wish if wishes could come true. Fish for 2-3 ideas to get creative in fulfilling something as an act of love.

There have always been Days of Chaos. But measured from Eternity’s perspective, Life is ALWAYS worth bringing into this world!

We need 2b wise re battles we choose, discerning re who/what =a tool of our spiritual Enemy. Some ppl are like Sabotage if we fall asleep.

Establishing healthy boundaries is not just pop psych. It is essential 2fulfilling the purpose 4which God placed u here. Tend ur own Garden.

Love= more than emotion if it’s even that at all. Love= a DECISION more than a choice, faithful in grace AND truth. That’s why it ENDURES.

Marriage isn’t a date, rings, a certificate. Marriage is GOD joining 2 together as 1 in Covenant, as a living parable of HIS faithfulness.

Heard today: Just because it’s TRUE doesn’t mean it MUST be said.



1. Controlling behavior can be the result of good traits and habits carried to an extreme.

2. The problem can arise when we respond badly to our failure to achieve or to people and events messing up our plans.

3. It only takes one area of life to go wrong for some people to feel that all of life is out of control.

4. This impacts everyone connected to the person.

5. Trusting the wise and good sovereignty of God is key to overcoming vain attempts to achieve personal sovereignty.




About Grace2Grow

Leah holds a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, and considers herself a forever-student at heart, especially of the Word of God. The last few years have included a 160+ lbs weightloss, and a complete re-working of her "inner man" as she has had to journey from merely what she "knew" to putting that into "ACTION" .. a transformation that so rocked her core, she believes God's calling in her life includes a sense of "urgency," as the body of Christ is fully - knowingly or unknowingly - entrenched in These Last Days, just as Jesus prophesied. She has worked in various forms of professional Customer Service for nearly 20 years, from Mortgages and Banking to Automotive Plastics, and values most the opportunity to mediate and problem-solve. Leah has served over the years in varying roles, from Women's Bible Study Leader to Choir Director to Worship Leading to teaching Sunday School to working faithfully in the Nursery. She loves being a Wife and Aunt and Sister and Daughter and Friend, and loves to read just about anything she can put her hands on. She is always re-learning putting feet and muscle to these things, but she has learned there is incalculable value in "working the plan," and "being faithful with LITTLE so as to be entrusted with MUCH." And she is trusting her beloved God and Savior for the "much" yet to come. You can find more of her musings on her blogs at and, or follow her on Twitter at
