9.23.2020 – “Hidden” Lessons

Have you ever wondered if God was “holding something back” from you? Or “holding you back” from something? The door won’t seem to open for you? I notice that my mind often tries to take over in times like these… Or my emotions… Wondering this or wondering about that… In times like these, we might… Read More 9.23.2020 – “Hidden” Lessons

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…”

9.17.2020 – “…joy will break forth within you as you listen for what I’ll say.”

I was drawn to this passage this morning… Proverbs 8:32-36 in The Passion Translation. I think it paints the most beautiful picture of when we find ourselves in this “place of longing to hear from Him”—this place of eager excitement, this longing and desire to hear from Him—what’s on His mind, what He has to… Read More 9.17.2020 – “…joy will break forth within you as you listen for what I’ll say.”

9.16.2020 – Discovering Him Through Relationship with Him

You know, I never was really interested in too much when I was learning in school. I never really was interested in any kind of in-depth studying… never felt the need to have all of the information, and didn’t care at all to know how to do all the things.

Have you ever reflected upon your life—a pathway you were on, a direction you were headed…. And you realized… “….my how that changed.

Who knew I’d be writing so much about our home renovations this week… Guess I should have known, because so often the Lord teaches me through things I can see in the natural, and things I go through in life—He often teaches me about the “unseen” through what I can see. ✍🏻 In case you… Read More 9.13.2020 – Home Renovations Pt. 3

9.9.2020 – God’s Infusion Therapy

I love how God can “infuse” us in such a way…. that we are “cleansed” and “nourished” at the same time… It’s His “infusion therapy”… I had a dream last night, and in the dream, I was at the Dentist for some kind of “issue” with my mouth, with my teeth.

9.2.2020 – Be Aware, Be Watchful, Be In Tune… and Take Up Your “Sword”

I feel like there is an urgency right now to be aware of our surroundings, and to be aware, and to be watchful.

I asked the Lord what was on His heart for me to write this morning and I simply heard this… “…stay true to Me…” This was after I read a passage in 1 Kings 11 where King Solomon turned his heart from God.💔 He was influenced by the wrong people, he allowed the wrong people… Read More 8.31.2020 – “… stay true to the Lord.”
