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

4.3.2020 – 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

3.31.2020 – “Oh, That My People Would Listen to Me”

The Lord keeps bringing Psalm 81 to my attention, and He did again this morning… Psalm 81 English Standard Version Oh, That My People Would Listen to Me 81 Sing aloud to God our strength;    shout for joy to the God of Jacob!2 Raise a song; sound the tambourine,    the sweet lyre with the harp.3 Blow the trumpet at the new moon,    at the full… Read More 3.31.2020 – “Oh, That My People Would Listen to Me”

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.

3.23.2020 – “Lord, how do I fight a wave of worry?”

Worry sometimes comes in like a “wave”… Worry can sweep in and catch us off guard, and before we know it, we can find ourselves being “swept away” by that overwhelming thought –and before we know it, we can find ourselves being carried out to a sea of worrisome thoughts and fears. I’ll admit, a… Read More 3.23.2020 – “Lord, how do I fight a wave of worry?”

3.21.2020 – “Alignment”

The word, “alignment” has been on my mind a lot lately. As I sit here before the Lord this morning, it keeps coming to mind….

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…”

There is a strange “quietness” within me this morning. Usually there’s a quietness on the outside, …while there’s an over-abundance of disorganized words, thoughts, memories, and ideas swirling so “loudly” within me… Sometimes I can’t seem to organize all of it well enough to “say” with my mouth, but somehow when I write, I’m able… Read More 3.3.2020 – “Say to those who are fearful-hearted…”
