Posted by: Rebecca.

Are you struggling with how to accomplish a goal?

For me, it’s been a revision I need to make in my book. Lately, I’ve been in a writing funk (GASP!) and have made little progress on it.  Continue reading

Posted by: Rebecca.

It feels like ages since I’ve sat down with the intention to just write. The tornado that is sometimes called life has run amuck through our house. What do I mean by that? hmm…

Graduating or Growing Dim?

‘Tis the season for diplomas, cardboard caps, and “Pomp and Circumstance”. At least eight of my friends and family members are graduating from High school or college this month.

Recently, I’ve felt a deep longing to graduate too. Not from an academic institution, but to new levels in my faith and in the craft of writing.  Continue reading

Finding Focus: God’s Vision for You

God is the only Light which can give us a true, clear vision for our future: His “high calling” for our life.

“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Phil. 3:14 (KJV)

The good news? God has a plan. He has a specific vision for each of us, and it’s a good one! He also wants to show it to us. (Jeremiah. 29:11-13 NIV).

So, how do we discover God’s vision for us?

We can learn much from studying natural vision and the functions of what biologists call the visual systemContinue reading
