5.28.2020 – Walking at His Pace

I just used up the last little corner of space in my journal… ✍🏻😬 I didn’t have a new one to continue into, and so I’ve admittedly been trying to conserve the last few pages —attempting to use every little bit of space on the pages, and writing as small and concisely as I can,… Read More 5.28.2020 – Walking at His Pace

5.26.2020 – God’s Books

This morning I was drawn to Malachi 3:16-18… there is something about this passage that is so lovely and especially beautiful to me. 😊💖✨✍🏻 I’ll post it in a couple of different versions because I love the wording of both: “Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened,… Read More 5.26.2020 – God’s Books

5.21.2020 – “God, what would You like to write upon my heart?”

I’ve been hearing this beautiful phrase a lot, especially from our Pastor: “Written upon our hearts…” Heard it again at prayer last night, and this morning again… Suddenly as I heard it again this morning I had a thought, “What kinds of things could God write upon our hearts?” Wow… Yes, He writes His “laws”… Read More 5.21.2020 – “God, what would You like to write upon my heart?”

5.16.2020 – Every “Page” Matters

I’ve only a few pages left in my current leather journal. It’s felt like this one has lasted forever. Don’t get me wrong, I love this journal.

5.15.2020 – “Girls with Swords”

Yesterday morning on my Facebook page I shared a quote from a “Facebook Memory” from that date, in the year 2016. “Our God loves triumphing over what looks impossible; therefore, he calls an ambush without any means of escape “an opportunity”!” ― Lisa Bevere, Girls with Swords: Why Women Need to Fight Spiritual Battles (Take note… Read More 5.15.2020 – “Girls with Swords”

1.25.2020 – Renewed by The Word

The Word of God is truly the “remedy” for anything we could ever face. Isn’t that amazing? How is it so easy to lose sight of that sometimes?

1.24.2020 – He likes to keep me on my toes…

Lately I’m noticing these patterns in my life…. It’s like the Lord has been teaching me how to recognize when He is leading me into the “next thing” –the next thing He wants me to learn, or to break through, or to step into. It’s the “next thing” He wants me to learn with Him.… Read More 1.24.2020 – He likes to keep me on my toes…

12.21.19 – Pen, Paper, and Hearts

This morning I realized I’m on my last page of my current journal. It always feels like God does something a little different in my life, with each new journal. I’ve come to expect a new “page” turned or perhaps even a new “chapter” as I start each brand new journal. I was thinking about… Read More 12.21.19 – Pen, Paper, and Hearts

10.24.19 – God’s Storyline

Over the last couple of days, I’ve been thinking, and marveling over the fact that God has written a book about my life.

Have you ever really felt “nervousness” in the pit of your stomach, in the shaking and sweating of your hands, in the pounding of your heart? The concerns and “what ifs” and worries in your mind?

This morning has felt like a treasure hunt, or maybe you could say it has been somewhat of an adventure with the Lord.
