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…

4.8.2020 – 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…

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…”

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.

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 wonder why things often get harder just before they get easier… I wonder why, as we bring ourselves closer to risk, as we inch closer and closer to taking that next jump, the situation often becomes scarier before it’s not at all anymore. I wonder why pain intensifies in the moments before relief comes…… Read More 3.14.2020 – When things get harder before they get easier…
