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

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…”

3.25.2020 – 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.

What an interesting time we’ve suddenly found ourselves living in.

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…

Sometimes we come to these places in life that feel a lot like “jumping off a diving board”… The place of being “right there on the edge of jumping into something“….
