But God

Some time back, I was reading about Ananias when I came across the part where God called him to go, lay hands on and heal another man. His response was one of trepidation. He knew the reputation of this man. He knew the authority this man had to murder anyone who came in the name…

The Cause of Comfort

My husband hangs Christmas lights every year for extra income. Though he may never admit it, I think there is a part of him that does it because he is a closet adrenaline junkie. This year was no different. He had over thirty houses on the books. Now, it is important to realize that Christmas…

We Wait

While waiting a month for my shower water to heat up, it hit me… we do the same thing in life. We wait. We wait until everything is in order. We wait until the perfect time to do this or to do that. We wait until a better moment to address something long over due….

Paper Cuts

“and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,” Ephesians 6:17 ESV

Unusual Peace

​And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

  Four days ago, I got a call from my former principal, asking me if I would consider a teaching job in a different grade level than when I taught for him this past year. The reason I say “former principal” is because I had resigned to be a stay at home mom. I have…

Anchored

July 29th “COME TO ME CONTINUALLY. I am meant to be the Center of your consciousness, the Anchor of your soul. Your mind will wonder from Me, but the question is how far you allow it to wander. An anchor on a short rope lets a boat drift only slightly before the taut line tugs the boat…

Ready for Battle

David was a man who heard what others had heard. What crippled others with fear, called him to action. When his family learned of his calling, they doubted and even became angry with him. Even the man in charge of their spiritual journey spoke against him. Hearing all of their doubt, he did the unthinkable,…

First Responder

11-12 Then he was told, “Go, stand on the mountain at attention before God. God will pass by.” A hurricane wind ripped through the mountains and shattered the rocks before God, but God wasn’t to be found in the wind; after the wind an earthquake, but God wasn’t in the earthquake; and after the earthquake fire, but God wasn’t in the fire; and after the fire a…
