4.8.2020 – Majesty

There is a sense of excitement within me, an expectation of what the Lord is about to do…. In my journal I wrote, “Good Morning, Holy Spirit ❤️I’m so excited to see what You’re revealing and doing in the earth!” And it was like I heard this in response, “I am about to reveal My… Read More 4.8.2020 – Majesty

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. 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”

Sometimes things just happen…. in an interesting way. And that’s about all we can say about the situation, in that moment. This morning I clicked on an “untitled draft” here on my blog site, and I came across this old reading that I had pasted into this “untitled draft” from an old book that we… Read More 4.5.2020 – Sometimes things just happen…. in an interesting way…

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.

4.3.2020 – A Deeper Understanding

Looking back over 2019, I can honestly say that it was one of the most challenging, uncertain, stressful, living-on-the-edge kind of years for us. 2019 was unlike any other kind of year I have ever experienced in my life. How? In the way 2019 stretched me… In the way it pressed me… 2019 felt like…”being… Read More 4.3.2020 – A Deeper Understanding

4.1.2020 — “Be Still, Cease Striving, Stop Your Fighting, Calm Down, Be in Awe…”

This morning I simply heard, “Be still…” But this “be still” had a “…” to it. A knowing that something should come after it, that something should follow it. A little later came… “…and remember (see, know, realize, grasp) that I Am God.” This comes from Psalm 46:10, and I love comparing the wording of… Read More 4.1.2020 — “Be Still, Cease Striving, Stop Your Fighting, Calm Down, Be in Awe…”

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

3.8.2020 – 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.

3.5.2020 – “Odd One Out”

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

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”

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 🧩
