The Burden of Man

What a great burden it is to LOVE in a world that thrives on hate. We are wounded... mortally so. Death. -Trista Daniell @Trista.Daniell(IG) http://www.TristaDaniell.com

Are we loving or are we lying?

How simple it would be If love were free But alas, It costs So much. We are desperate for love, because we do not know Love. We have an idea of what we think it is, but that idea rarely permeates our realities. To us, love is equated with "feelings" - if she/he makes me … Continue reading Are we loving or are we lying?

You say you know God’s Love – do you?

So I've asked for prayer to know the love of God without doubt so I can develop faith that moves mountains...well God is answering that prayer through John Eldridge's book, Moving Mountains. Today's chapter asked me what I believed about God...God's provision...God's care for you. Do you believe God is all powerful and near? Or … Continue reading You say you know God’s Love – do you?

Dear Aunt Katie Bell: I dreamt of love….

I dreamt I was at my Aunt Katie Bell's house...so I felt compelled to write about it.... Dear Aunt Katie Bell, I dreamt I was at your house last night. I was running through the house looking for you....I could sense your presence....I could smell your famous super pretty perfectly fried boneless skinless chicken breast … Continue reading Dear Aunt Katie Bell: I dreamt of love….

Shut Up! (Stop begging people to love you)

I have a really bad habit of talking until I'm blue in the face in an effort to give people chances to "fix it"....whatever it is. I don't know why I do this. I find it's counterproductive because as long as I'm talking, it means I still care.... Except, you get to a point where … Continue reading Shut Up! (Stop begging people to love you)

When life offers you lemons…

There's a lot to smile about in this world. Find it. Relish it. Don't let anybody take it away. The world is angry and wants you to be angry along with it....even though you might have all the reason in the world....don't. It's easy to be what everyone else is....be rare...be insane...be positive....be optimistic...be a … Continue reading When life offers you lemons…

Heart Check 

You can't lie...scheme.... sneak...and scam....or do things that purposefully hurt/mislead someone and expect the blessings of God to fall on you. It doesn't work that way. Pettiness (and/or being an a-hole)...though funny (at times)...is not a quality that should be celebrated or cultivated in the hearts of those claiming to follow God. If you retaliate … Continue reading Heart Check 

True Love…

So many  who believe they're in love are (in reality)  in really strong lust.  Love is about the other person. Lust is all about self. Know the difference.  -Trista Daniell  @Trista.Daniell (IG)  @EnTheosTR (T) http://www.TristaDaniell.com 

A Love Story x12

Any woman  in her right mind  would've walked away by now. But! she...  she wasn't in her right mind... She was in "love".  Deranged,   I know. ... Love. -Trista Daniell @Trista.Daniell (IG) @EnTheosTR (T)www.TristaDaniell.com

A Love Story x11

 I strayed often, but I always went back. Except, 
this time when I returned to reclaim 
my love she laughed - hysterically!  and responded 
with disgust,  
"Stop expecting good women 
to pick up the pieces of your broken heart."

 ... ...and I never had the pleasure of loving her again. Love. -Trista Daniell @EnTheosTR (T) @Trista.Daniell (IG) … Continue reading A Love Story x11
