7.14.2020 – Cause & Effect

I love it when the Lord prompts me to take a journey back through my journals… Because I know that He’s wanting to remind me of something, or show me something brand new that I had never seen or noticed before. This morning, He did a little of both. 💖✨☀️ How He works so beautifully… Read More 7.14.2020 – Cause & Effect

Have you heard of “The Chosen” series? More than likely, you have… I was a little late in getting to it. I think everyone had already seen it by the time I started digging into it.

All of the attacks on your life….

What if… You had to go through that hard thing… Because of the testimony you would gain… Because of the powerful story of salvation and deliverance that now belongs to you… And what if… The testimony of what God did in your life… Is now, what someone else so desperately needed to hear?

7.6.2020 – Childlike Hope

Sometimes I feel like I have this kind of “childlike hope” that is somewhat hidden within me… And I want to hang onto it with everything I’ve got, in spite of all the reports of things happening around us.

Goodness, it just hit me that we are halfway through this year. June has been quite an interesting month around planet earth. 🌎 My time at “34” is inching closer and closer to 35.

6.25.2020 – Enduring the Hard Things

God has this way of somehow making certain things that we must endure —hard things, painful things, horrible things, “impossible things”….. bearable. The word “bearable” means, “able to be endured” He has given that to us. 💖✨ Have you ever looked back upon your life, perhaps at some of the hardest things you’ve ever had… Read More 6.25.2020 – Enduring the Hard Things

6.24.2020 – Just when I thought there wasn’t a doorway…

Left and right, I am seeing Jesus “make a way” when there “seemed to be no way”… How He surprises me sometimes with His heavenly solutions… things I wouldn’t have ever considered from my own mind.

6.23.2020 – Refreshed Hope

This morning I feel such a refreshed hope, a revived hope about some things going on in my life.

Have you ever had to tell your soul… “Be still, my soul…” Sometimes things don’t happen the way we’d expect, and fear and anxiety begin to creep in because we don’t like the looks of the situation… This morning I am remembering that no matter how things may seem, no matter where I am standing… Read More 6.22.2020 – A Way (when there seems to be no way)

I discovered this song at just the perfect time yesterday… This new song by Sandra McCracken so lifted and encouraged me in a moment of frustration and discouragement.

I am finally beginning to understand… …that the lessons we learn from within the struggles are worth far more than having no struggle to deal with at all.
