11.24.2020 – Remember, He is like the Sunrise…

This morning I am finding rest in the truth… …that God’s Word does not return void. “So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.“—Isaiah 55:11 I am finding hope… Read More 11.24.2020 – Remember, He is like the Sunrise…

11.23.2020 – He always plans on seeing us through!

I wanted to share this music with you this morning…. As I sat down with the Lord this morning, and I put on this music, I felt such a tender closeness with Him—a sense of “togetherness” with Him…a warmth, a comfort, a peace…. a sense of relief. I’m so thankful to be able to come… Read More 11.23.2020 – He always plans on seeing us through!

11.21.2020 – “Wallflower” or Real Flower?

I kind of think I was made to “grow into” my name. “Heather“ It means, “flowering.” It’s a kind of plant. —A small, tough, flowering, evergreen shrub that grows and flourishes in rocky areas. “The name Heather actually refers to a variety of small shrubs with pink or white flowers which commonly grow in rocky areas that… Read More 11.21.2020 – “Wallflower” or Real Flower?

11.20.2020 – “Don’t Be Afraid”

I love this song by Josh Garrels… Wanted to share it on here this morning… because it soothed and encouraged me. In a time that many hearts are troubled….

11.18.2020 – The Battle in the Airwaves

Last night, as I was attempting to settle down for the evening, I started “scrolling” Facebook for a little bit. And —honestly—I was already in a little bit of a stressed, overwhelmed state of mind in that moment. And then, just like that, as I was scrolling, I came across some news that affected me… Read More 11.18.2020 – The Battle in the Airwaves

11.14.2020 – “Lord, this ‘voice’…. how do You want me to use it?”

I think it deeply pleases God when we ask Him things like, “Father? What do You think about this? What’s on Your heart? What are You thinking about? What are You dreaming about? What is Your desire, God?” What’s Your will for this situation that I’m seeing/going through/experiencing?” It must bring Him so much joy… Read More 11.14.2020 – “Lord, this ‘voice’…. how do You want me to use it?”

10.28.2020 – Uninhibited with Him

Sometimes when I wake up, and go to the table to sit with Him… I’ll walk in sleepy and tired, unsure of what God will want to do, wondering if I’ll be able to hear Him…and in that moment I’m honestly unsure of whether or not there will be a “breakthrough place” where I’m able… Read More 10.28.2020 – Uninhibited with Him

The Lord has brought my attention to “light” again this morning… And I’m not exactly sure why, but I’m going with it…we’ll see… Do you remember this little Sunday School children’s song? “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shineThis little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shineThis little light of mine,… Read More 10.25.2020 – “This little light of mine…”

10.16.2020 – Consecration

What does it mean to be “strong-willed”? Someone who is strong-willed doesn’t give up easily. A strong-willed person is determined. Perseverance is a good thing when it comes to living life.
