4.9.2020 – What His blood means…

Haven’t these times been interesting? I feel as though there is so much “symbolism” right beneath our noses —there to give us a deeper revelation and understanding of what is happening within our world, within our nation, as well as what could be at work within our own lives. Things that need to be addressed,… Read More 4.9.2020 – What His blood means…

4.6.2020 – “We Will Feast”

This is another one of my favorites by Sandra McCracken that I want to share this morning. This song brings courage, joy, and hope, especially in times of uncertainty, and in times of trouble, in times of waiting— for me, it’s a beautiful reminder of what’s ultimately to come for us as beloved children of… Read More 4.6.2020 – “We Will Feast”

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

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

3.27.2020 – Time to Tune In

In the midst of the overwhelming noise of fear, and the distraction of conspiracy… God is speaking. 🍃☀️ He’s reminding. He’s unfolding. He’s revealing. Right now, we are being given a unique opportunity of “quiet”… And within the “quiet” He is speaking. Will we turn our ears toward fear? Will we allow the noise to… Read More 3.27.2020 – Time to Tune In

3.25.2020 – His Way Leads to Healing and Refreshment

Jason said I woke up laughing again… 😆 He said he asked me what I was laughing about, and I told him, but neither he nor I remember. I wonder what God is doing. 💖 A few of years ago, before I started dreaming regularly and before I began recalling and recording my dreams, I… Read More 3.25.2020 – His Way Leads to Healing and Refreshment

3.24.2020 – Change is in the Air

What a strange time we’re living in. It’s a historic time. Imagine all the books and stories and recordings that will come from this moment in time… We’re living it right now. We’re experiencing what will be written about in history books —right now. It’s like we’re finding ourselves suddenly being carried up into a… Read More 3.24.2020 – Change is in the Air

3.12.2020 – “Put on your beautiful garments…”

I love mornings when I wake up from a beautiful, brand new dream, and I get to sit down and dig into it, asking the Lord about it, looking back through my notes about the different dream elements, and what they mean to me… Sometimes I’ll know exactly what the dream is saying, and other… Read More 3.12.2020 – “Put on your beautiful garments…”

3.10.2020 – The Diving Board

Sometimes we come to these places in life that feel a lot like “jumping off a diving board”… The place of being “right there on the edge of jumping into something“…. It could be something new… Probably something deep… Hitting that water could be a little harsh… Depending on how I make my way in.… Read More 3.10.2020 – The Diving Board

3.8.2020 – Deeper and Higher

I love this song. Something about it makes me feel not so alone in all the thoughts, all the concerns, all the “what ifs,” and all the fears, that we so often face in this journey we take with the Lord. He’s always taking us to a “higher place” in our perspective. He’s always bringing… Read More 3.8.2020 – Deeper and Higher

3.6.2020 – “Paint with Water”

I spent some time going back through my dream journal this morning. Every now and then I’ll feel prompted to browse back through, looking at certain dreams, looking back over the ones I was able to figure out, and the ones that still remain a mystery to me. I write them all down. Even the… Read More 3.6.2020 – “Paint with Water”

3.5.2020 – “Odd One Out”

I’ve always felt “different” than the rest of the crowd. No matter what kind of group I’m around, even the kind of groups I’ve been a part of where we have the same “DNA” –I’ve still always found myself in the place of being “the odd one out.” The one that’s so different than all… Read More 3.5.2020 – “Odd One Out”

2.27.2020 – He’s inviting us into a “Place of Discovery”

I asked myself this question (and not in a condemning way)… “How many times has God been doing things to get my attention in my life, and yet I wasn’t ‘looking’ to be able to catch it, to be able to see it, to be able to notice it…?” I pondered this question as I… Read More 2.27.2020 – He’s inviting us into a “Place of Discovery”

There is a unique perspective that belongs to our Heavenly Father… “As you do not know the path of the wind,or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb,so you cannot understand the work of God,the Maker of all things.” -Ecclesiastes 11:5 …The things He can see and understand that we may not be… Read More 2.26.2020 – Sight and Understanding

Me: “God, what are You doing? I want to see You in this…I don’t understand…but I know You’re up to something…” And it’s just like I see Him “smile” (if that’s possible to see without really seeing)…. this knowing, loving, joyful, “don’t you worry” kind of smile. 🌅🌈 A smile that says, “I’ve got this.”… Read More 2.24.2020 – Parts to Play 🧩

2.23.2020 – Resting While Waiting in the Place of Unknown

Thank God, He knows us better than any other. Thank God, He knows what we can handle, and what we can’t. Thank God, He knows our hearts, our minds, and still loves us just the same. Thank God, He doesn’t expect us to “figure it all out”… Have you ever found yourself trying to figure… Read More 2.23.2020 – Resting While Waiting in the Place of Unknown
