4.7.2020 – We’ll be able to look back and see…

Have you ever been able to look back on something in your life… And it’s like you can now see, exactly how things worked out, how they so perfectly fell into place, fell into alignment, and how things that needed to happen, happened… And it’s like you can see God’s “fingerprints” all over the pages… Read More 4.7.2020 – We’ll be able to look back and see…

4.6.2020 – “We Will Feast”

This is another one of my favorites by Sandra McCracken that I want to share this morning.

4.4.2020 – Tender Hearts

This morning the Lord brought to mind a memory from last February, and so I went and found my journal from around that time to see what I had recorded. It was around the time I had fallen. I couldn’t walk, couldn’t sit for a little while, and a prayer group had prayed for me.… Read More 4.4.2020 – Tender Hearts

4.2.2020 – Like an old, favorite sweater…

How can we comfort one another in these kinds of times? We can find comfort by dwelling with Him in His Word, and reminding one another of His promises. And when we overflow in joy and in faith, we can let it overflow out into the atmosphere… I’ll admit, it’s a struggle in this time….… Read More 4.2.2020 – Like an old, favorite sweater…

3.30.2020 – “Sweet Comfort”

I love this album of Psalms by Sandra McCracken. There’s something about music that can soothe the soul in times like these.

3.29.2020 – The Hope of Promise

Yesterday was such an encouraging day for me. ☀️ It was the first day I’ve been well enough, to be able to solidly work outside… in what seems like forever. Simple things like raking leaves out of my flower beds, weeding, and getting them cleaned up, helping Jason to build our new raised beds… 🧑🏻‍🌾🌱🌷🦋🍃☀️All the… Read More 3.29.2020 – The Hope of Promise

3.20.2020 – SOS

This song came on yesterday… and something about it felt like the “cry of many out there in the world” right now. Perhaps it’s the cry of many who are going through this challenging and troubling time of uncertainty. But then the Lord gave me Psalm 46 ☀️(I encourage you to read it in it’s… Read More 3.20.2020 – SOS

3.9.2020 – True Colors

Who am I when no one is looking? When no one else but the Lord can see… How will I react in the moment of that sting of disappointment? Or that moment when fear swoops in? Will I choose to grumble over the inconvenience? Will self-centeredness rise to the surface? Will selfishness kick in? “What’s… Read More 3.9.2020 – True Colors

3.7.2020 – Habakkuk’s Lessons

Foreward: As I first sat down this morning, I felt empty of words. It kind of scared me a little, to be honest. I didn’t like this feeling of “lack” but…I decided that the lack of my own words could be even better than having the wrong ones, so I decided to wait… Yesterday I… Read More 3.7.2020 – Habakkuk’s Lessons

I’ve always felt “different” than the rest of the crowd.

Change. Have you ever gone through the kind of “change” that feels kind of like you’re being swept up in a whirlwind, knowing you really don’t have much control over where you land?

2.19.2020 – “When’s it gonna get easier??”

This morning as I sat before the Lord, I heard a random phrase… “Try, try, try again!” Sometimes in the “trying” and “trying” and “trying” again… I find myself growing tired and weary. Frustrated. When I feel the resistance, the struggle, the pain of my glaring weaknesses time after time after time… “God, sometimes it… Read More 2.19.2020 – “When’s it gonna get easier??”
