I am in great need of breakthrough over a certain area of my life--so I have decided to fast from social media as I pray about this need over the next three days. I will be back Monday. Hope you all have an amazing weekend!!! 💕😎

Listen sons and daughters--just as the bride prepares for her groom, believing he sees all her beauty, so are we seen by our Heavenly Father. Don't worry about your ugly past--leave it there! When He looks at you He sees you as you can be---as you were made to be! #picsee #pixabay #christianliving #potential #jesuslovesme #heavenlyfather #bride #bridegroom #beauty #beautifulovercomer

What we are experiencing today is nothing in light of God's glory-kingdom that will last for all of eternity! The season of trials will end, and His glorious light will shine through! #picsee #pixabay #tpt #kingdom #jesus #eternity #heaven #season #christianliving #restinhispresence #havefaith

Even when all around you life seems to be falling apart--rest and peace can be found in His presence. #restinhispresence #christianliving #picsee #pixabay #jesus #calm #peaceinthestorm #havefaith #iloveyoujesus #relax

This song by Elevation Worship has been going through my head for the past few days. I think we often reach a point in our Jesus-walk where we really feel as if the walls confining us should have crumbled by now-- I know I've had those thoughts often! We need to stand firm in our beliefs that God won't fail us--He never has and He never will! #havefaith #christianliving #jesus #walls #picsee #pixabay #standfirm #hewontletyoudown

My soul longs to be in His presence as there I find rest and peace...as only there, the longing in my soul is filled. #peace #streams#asthedeerpanteth #fillmeuplord #jesus #christianliving #havefaith

Rest...trust that God will make a way even when there appears to be no way. #restinhispresence #christianliving #rest #forest #dontworrybehappy #jesus

Sweet and simple as I sit in His presence worshipping Him! ❤️ #restinhispresence #christianliving #jesus #worship #ilovejesus #trials #storms #havefaith

I was thinking of this song from years ago by Darrell Evans--it was one of the first pieces my daughter ever learned to play on the guitar so I heard it a lot!!!
"I'm trading my sorrows, I'm trading my shame, I'm laying them down for the joy of the Lord...yes, Lord..."
#joyofthelord #yeslord #christianliving #christianlife #faith #music #guitar #practice #tradingmysorrows

This song has been going through my head all morning--yes, Jesus loves me, the Bible tells me so! As all around me as the enemy attempts to attack and distract, I will choose to rest in that promise! #jesuslovesme #cross #christianliving #christianlife #jesus #restinhispresence #promises #pixabay #picsee

Spending some time with my Lord on a relaxing Saturday morning--there is nothing better than resting in His presence! 💕 #saturdaymorning #hills #mountains #restinhispresence #jesus #christianlife #christianfaith #psalms #worship #godisamazing #help

This is a difficult one--I keep trying to put God in a box and make Him what I think He should be rather than just letting Him be Him. #god #godisgreat #thinkoutsidethebox #christianlife #cslewis

I enjoy reading and rereading through The Way of the Warrior Series by Graham Cooke. I've applied this a number of times when praying for other people. If you are struggle financially,pray for someone in a similar situation; if you need healing in a certain area, pray for someone with the same need. When we do this something amazing is released in the spirit. 💕 #christianlife #jesus #prayerwarriors #spiritualwarfare

Happy Friday! I couldn't resist sharing this because I am so excited--almost at the finish line! But aside from all that--my hope is that as a result of reading my book, people are drawn closer to the Lord! 💕#beautifulovercomer #christianlifecoach #christianlife #author #inspiration #readabook #jesus #thankyoujesus

This has been my life verse for the past 6 years as I have learned to find joy in the Lord. He's seen me through some difficult seasons but He's faithfully guided me through them. Last night at 11:56 I submitted my book to Amazon and it should be available within a few days. It was such an amazing moment as I saw fruit from my labor. The Lord truly can make beauty from the ashes of your life! #christianlifecoach #beautifulovercomer #jesus #beautyfromashes #joy

Just wanted to share this with you all: the IAmen app is a Christian social networking platform--it's an amazing community where believers can share prayer requests, what God is doing in their lives, and encouragement. I've written a few devotionals exclusively for IAmen--stop by and check them out in the app! @iamen.app #iamen #christianlife #christianfaith #beblessed #jesus

Just counting my blessings today. God is good; all the time He is good! #beblessed #god #blessings #christianlife #mycupoverfloweth #countyourblessings #drinkmilk #overflow

One of the greatest challenges to our Jesus-walk is the time spent waiting. But while you wait, know He is listening to your prayers, collecting your tears, and working on your behalf. Rest as you trust His perfect timing. #rest #waiting #jesus #hehearsmyprayers #christianlife #christianfaith

It takes a lot of courage to release our dreams into the hands of God, but we can trust He knows best! #dream #christianlife #livelife #jesus

As I was reading in Psalms this morning my thoughts turned towards how the Lord is always right there with us in the storms of life. He is with us when the spouses are unfaithful, when friends turn away, when children turn their backs on the Lord, or when death or illness comes knocking at our door. He is there when we experience betrayal, heartache, loss, shame...He's right there with us through it all...and that makes me love Him even more! 💕#christianlifecoach #godisfaithful #betrayal #prodigalson #ilovejesus

Just got back from coffee with a friend and I have this amazing sense of peace. So often, I end up fighting against what the Lord is doing in my life because it isn't happening according to my schedule--like publishing a book 🙄. Today, I choose to stop striving and relax, trusting everything will happen at the precise moment it needs to. Be blessed my friends! Enjoy your weekend! 💕#christianlifecoach #relax #weekend #godsgotthis

You find Jesus! There are seasons when He removes so much from your life that nothing seems left. But one thing always remains--Him! He never leaves or forsakes! #christianlifecoach #jesus #endoftheroad

Continuing with Casual Friday--yes, I play but I hadn't for the longest time. I still remember the day the music died and I allowed the enemy to steal even more joy from me. It took me years before I was ready to play again. I finally replaced my piano last year but it sat neglected as I just wasn't ready to release this part of me. In this season of waiting I've recently started practicing again-- I had forgotten how soothing music is to my soul; how the expected patterns of a piece of music can bring order to my disorderly life. I'm pretty rusty and it will take work to reclaim the same level of playing, but I'm going to enjoy the process of practicing. #christianlifecoach #beautifulovercomer #music #practice

It's casual Friday!!! I have been thinking about giving you a glimpse of the real me--this is a photo of my daughter and I just having a blast being together; in other words, our version of normal. My favorite thing to laugh about is a good pun--or should I say a bad one because the more groan-worthy the pun is-the better I like it! But the real reason I'm on this platform is to encourage you in your walk with Jesus. The road can be a difficult one, but if we focus on Him the journey can be easier. I've been through the fire, and now I'm bringing buckets of life-giving hope to others. May the Lord richly bless you! 💕 #christianlifecoach #beautifulovercomer #sherrylynnfire #breakthrough #jesus #christianlife #casualfriday

Expectant anticipation that your prayers will be answered. There are times when our faith is stretched to the limit as we are called to prepare for an unseen, unknown future. In my life I've done a lot of preparation for my future--two degrees, certification, even written a book--all without the certainty of where it will lead. I am certain I am following His will for my life, and while I do it I am stretching my faith muscles as I work towards an undefined goal. Has the Lord called you to something that makes little sense in what you can see with your eyes? #christianlife #sherrylynnfire #beautifulovercomer #breakthrough #christianlifecoach #jesus #faith

In the waiting season I can try to move forward as I rely on my own strength. When I do this--trust my strength over His--it gets me nowhere. As I wait I can relax and stop striving, knowing He will provide what I need at the exact moment I need it. #breakthrough #opendoors #waiting #jesus #strength #beautifulovercomer #christianlifecoach

Rather than respond in the negative about how your life is going, why not answer with "I'm quietly hopeful" as you wait with anticipation for your breakthrough? #beautifulovercomer #breakthrough #christianlifecoach #testimony #trials #christianlife #howareyou

In the midst of my fiery trials I sat in church services listening to the testimonies of others as they experienced their breakthrough moments. I rejoiced right along with them but as weeks, months, and even years went by I began to ask God where my breakthrough was. I questioned whether or not He heard my prayers; if He was even listening or working on them. I also remember wondering if all my tears even meant anything to Him; couldn't He see how I was hurting? The waiting season is challenging but by adjusting our attitude and positioning our heart to receive what He has for us, we can use this time to grow closer to Him. Beauty can be birthed from the ashes of your life. #beautifulovercomer #christianlifecoach #christianlife #overcomer #beautiful #trials #testimony

Imagine where we'd be if this was still true? Praying this nation turns back to God--praying for revival to sweep this land!! #christianlife #maga #foundingfathers #independenceday #patriots #faith #unitedstates

So thankful for the freedoms I enjoy today that are the result of all the wars fought in the yesterdays of history! #christianfaith #independenceday #unitedstates #foundingfathers #maga #jesus #christianlife #disciple

Don't let the current teaching tell you differently--the Founding Fathers wanted Christ in all aspects of our lives. #god #christianfaith #maga #foundingfathers #unitedstates #independenceday #christian

How can we doubt the original intent of the Founding Father's when we read words like this? The beginning of this quote reads: "in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior". #independenceday #patriot #unitedstates #foundingfathers #maga #christianfaith #god
