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

Sometimes things just happen…. in an interesting way. And that’s about all we can say about the situation, in that moment.

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.

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.

3.9.2020 – True Colors

Who am I when no one is looking? When no one else but the Lord can see… How will I react in the moment of that sting of disappointment? Or that moment when fear swoops in?

Foreward: As I first sat down this morning, I felt empty of words. It kind of scared me a little, to be honest.

This morning as I sat before the Lord, I heard a random phrase… “Try, try, try again!” Sometimes in the “trying” and “trying” and “trying” again… I find myself growing tired and weary. Frustrated.
