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

5.19.2020 – Thoughts and notes about life lessons…

This morning I am filled with “awe and wonder”…. I like to refer to it as being all “sparkly” 😊✨ I’ve been sitting for a little while, reflecting on a couple of dreams I had last night, and one of them was perhaps, one of the most beautiful and interesting dreams I’ve ever had. ☀️💖… Read More 5.19.2020 – Thoughts and notes about life lessons…

5.17.2020 – For the one who feels ‘forgotten’…

For the one who feels “forgotten” or “unseen” in this time… I feel compelled to write something this morning… It’s a lie. It’s a dangerous lie that will take you down into a dark pit of bitterness and offense, if you allow it to take you there.

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”

5.13.2020- “Softly and Tenderly”

I felt led to sharing this hymn this morning… This one gives me chills every time I hear it sung from within a congregation —all the voices all around me, singing and “calling” together—joining together with the will and desire of His heart. 💝It’s more powerful than perhaps we realize.

5.11.2020 – “Who am I… really?”

There’s something about this time we’re living in…. something about this time of “reset”…. It seems like God is surfacing and stripping away false things… false identities. Hindrances… It’s so easy to take a look at our lives, and find something we enjoy doing, maybe even something we’re good at doing, perhaps something that others… Read More 5.11.2020 – “Who am I… really?”

I’ve always loved this hymn, and I love it even more after hearing this new version of it, performed by Wilder Adkins and McKenzie Lockhart… In the Garden Words and Music by C.

5.7.2020 – “Am I going backwards?”

I had a moment of discouragement with myself yesterday…. and the enemy tried to take it and run with it. But what have I learned to do? Write about it. Backfire it in the enemy’s face. Lately I’ve struggled with the feeling of being anxious of “falling behind or going backwards”…..not wanting to “fall” backwards… Read More 5.7.2020 – “Am I going backwards?”

5.6.2020 – The Way of Truth

I’ve been thinking about “truth” this morning… I’m sure you’ve probably heard the phrase, “(so and so) loved me enough to tell me the truth.” One might be referring to something as simple as a person having something in their teeth, or on their face, or perhaps an outfit that is just a big “no”… Read More 5.6.2020 – The Way of Truth

There is so much “out there” that we could “set our minds on” right now. Information, different perspectives, facts, studies, numbers, theories, opinions, feelings…SO much information.

5.4.2020 – “In this life you will have trouble…”

I’ve noticed the Lord will often take me back to certain memories in my life, and it’s like He’ll show me a brand new perspective —a new way to look at that memory. He’ll take it and really “make something” of it. 💖 This morning I suddenly remembered a specific memory from when I was… Read More 5.4.2020 – “In this life you will have trouble…”

Have you ever noticed thoughts that just somehow find a way to sneak into your head?

This morning as I was sitting here, realizing that —”Wow… it’s May 1st…“ I heard a phrase, “The time has not been wasted!” And so I decided to press into that a little bit this morning.

There is something valuable that is gained from a “process”… “Process” is defined as, “a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end.” Could I miss something important if I skip a step?
