9.22.2020 -“Father, may Your will be done…”

As I was listening to a teaching message yesterday, I heard a quote that just jumped out at me and stuck with me… “…but if you’re not purged of that which would stop you from saying ‘yes” (to God)… the reason why God put you here will never happen. You have to be purged of… Read More 9.22.2020 -“Father, may Your will be done…”

I used to think that God didn’t really actually (literally) speak to us…. …other than through what He wanted to show us in His Word, or perhaps through the message of a preacher… For a lot of my life I believed it was good to pray, to speak to God, but I didn’t really expect… Read More 9.12.2020 – Small Awakenings

8.16.2020 – The “Birthing” Process

So I had another “birthing” dream last night… And before you think or assume anything, this dream doesn’t have anything do with “birthing” an actual baby in real life.
