  • WELL WITH MY SOUL
    Formed

    Is it really well with my soul?

    I preach to myself in song. It gives me an emotional high, and I’m not sure if it’s my enneagram 4 showing or the excitement from feeling closer to God. He frequently reaches my heart through worship music, as I’m sure He does for many of you.

    Amazing grace, that saved a wretch like me…

    All my hope is in Jesus, thank God that yesterday’s gone…

    There’s an army risin’ up, yeah, to break every chain, break every chain….

    There are a few songs, though, that just stop me. I don’t know that I’ll ever be able to sing these songs without a large ball of emotion assaulting my voice and spilling tears from my eyes. I didn’t always feel this way.

    Worship Made New

    What’s your favorite way to worship God? Is it through scripture? Singing? Nature? Going to church? For students – they love the peak experience of camp worship. There are always new songs, movements, intimate depths of the words repeated over and over. These songs usually lead into our worship experience at church in the fall. But unfortunately, they don’t get that experience this year.

    My Journey to Recovery

    On April 22, 2010 God’s plan intersected with mine and brought me to Recovery at IBC with the hope that this would be the place that would heal my family from the trauma and brokenness we were walking through. I came to Recovery with my husband to make sure he came and participated in the program, but I ended up staying for me. I was honestly not ready to look at myself, but Jesus knew this ministry would shed light on my own issues.

    Perfectly Free

    “We are not perfectly free until we live in pure hope.” I have read that line over and over. I’ve put it everywhere. On my mirror, in my car and on my computer as a reminder of where my hope comes from.

    Lessons from a Prayer Prodigal

    I am not a prayer warrior. Am I allowed to say that? I really struggle with prayer and deeply admire people who don’t. If prayer is one of your spiritual gifts, consider my lack-of-giftedness officially on your prayer list. My biggest problem isn’t that I’m uncomfortable praying out loud, or that I get too busy and forget to pray (although that does happen); it’s that...

    Manna-Moments from the Kitchen Pantry

    We are in such an enormous swirl of emotion, action, education and anxiety. The unknown seems vast. The future feels foggy. It may at times, look a little bleak. I mean, Moses and his crew made sand angels in the desert for 40 years before they got to the promised land. We are just 6 months in.
