Exodus 14:14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still

It has been awhile since I have made any contributions to my blog. I am still in a place of healing and discovery so I have felt very little in the form of sharing or writing. However, during this time I have really relied on the above verse. This is where I am at currently. I am trying to learn to be still in my spirit. The calm my busy body personality and really reflect on what the Lord has for me in this next chapter of my life.

Awhile back I was asked for a list of books that I am going through. This is my list. I have read some of these, I am working through others, and still others are on my bedside table waiting for me to get to them. These books are listed in no particular order, but these are the books I am getting through during this time. I have a few more and will update the list later:
