With friends like that, who needs enemies?That was my thought as I watched a video of a teenage girl being pushed off a bridge to tumble about 60 feet to the water below. Moulton Falls is a popular place where people often go to jump, ignoring the “No Jumping” signs. The young lady was quoted … Continue reading Who’s Got Your Back?
Breath on Paper small group is taking a break between semesters. We'll be back June 12th.

Breath on Paper small group is taking a break between semesters. For the next few weeks we are taking advantage of this time off, we hope you enjoy revisiting our favorites. We will return June 12th. I’ve had to do it in line for a car tag. I’ve had to do it at the restaurant. I’ve … Continue reading I Will Wait on the Lord
I’ve had to do it in line for a car tag. I’ve had to do it at the restaurant. I’ve had to do it in the hair salon and I’ve even had to do it to get in church. What’d I have to do? Wait. That’s right, the twiddling-your-thumbs, tapping-your-fingers kind of waiting. I don’t … Continue reading I Will Wait on the Lord
A little bit about me....I am hard headed. I want what I want and patience isn’t a quality I possess. I also love God and know without a shadow of a doubt that true joy is living a life that is built on a foundation of faith that God has it all worked out......we just … Continue reading A little bit about me….
Trust in the Lord with all your heart ... For the life of me, I don’t know why that verse is so difficult for me to grasp. Maybe it’s because I’m German. Not only is the language hard, but so are German heads (so they say). Or maybe it’s because I’m a little bit of … Continue reading Trusting Like Alice
"The work God does within us while we wait, is just as important as whatever it is we're waiting for." Oh. That's when it hit me, there I was so desperate for the "more" that God has for my life, just wallowing in my own self-pity wondering WHEN I was going to have that life God promised, WHEN was he going to make my dreams come true, the dreams HE gave me? I was so mad at God for giving me hope, for showing me a future that He had for me, but not giving it to me.
Today we are taking the day to reflect on a precious verse and a beautiful song. We're calling it Word & Worship OUR WORD for TODAY: But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 Wait upon the … Continue reading WORD & WORSHIP – Everlasting God
Today we welcome Lauren Cruise to Guest Writer Week at Breath on Paper. There's something so beautiful about speaking to God as though He's our only friend; being totally abandoned to Him; separating ourselves from the world and being solely devoted to Him. Inviting Him into every area of our lives, every second of the day. … Continue reading Authentic Love
Today we welcome Kelly Jones to Guest Writer Week at Breath on Paper. I have wrestled with insecurity throughout my entire life. This lie that ‘I am not good enough’ or that ‘I am too busy for God to use me’ is a lie that the devil attempts to ensnare me in. I struggled with believing … Continue reading Identity Buried Within Insecurity
