Seen and Unseen

A couple of summers back, my husband was teaching our youngest daughter nicknamed Bug, how to float. She was terrified to lay on her back and relax. Scott finally took her to the shallow end of the pool, by the steps, and got her to finally relax and let him hold her. As she laid…

Thirsty

I wanted to share a journal entry that washed over me a couple of days ago. My heart aches deeply for our thirsty earth and the parched souls searching desperately for something to satisfy the arid places within. Father, We have never been more thirsty for Your living water! We are searching for it in…

Unanswered Prayers

I think Garth Brooks sang it best, “Some of God’s greatest gifts, are unanswered prayers.” Many times I have prayed and prayed and begged others to join in me in prayer, praying every way that I’d been taught and to no avail. “I must be doing it wrong.” I would think to myself. I would…

Focused on the Flesh

One of the darkest times of my life was sadly while I was on my journey to a better, healthier me. I remember a time, a couple of years ago, when I sat down to have my quiet time, the scripture reference was Romans 8:6. I opened up my Bible to see what it said….

Unusual Peace

​And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 ESV Since deciding to go back to work, this incredible, indescribable peace has washed over me. Sunday, in church, my husband prayed over me as we took the communion elements. In the midst he…

The Root of Weeds

Many times, I looked out in the yard and noticed an onslaught of weeds. It seems every time we mow, the weeds just pop back up the next day. One day, determined to alleviate the problem, I grabbed a dinosaur step stool and an old shoe box. For a while, and by a while I mean five…

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…

My Father’s Father’s Promise Is My Hope

Last week I ran across an old friend, a scripture that had given me much hope, through many of my life’s trials. I have walked a lot of life in these last three and a half decades, so when a promise in scripture like this one comes along, it is one I cling to for hope….
