4.9.2020 – What His blood means…

Haven’t these times been interesting? I feel as though there is so much “symbolism” right beneath our noses —there to give us a deeper revelation and understanding of what is happening within our world, within our nation, as well as what could be at work within our own lives. Things that need to be addressed,… Read More 4.9.2020 – What His blood means…

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

4.7.2020 – We’ll be able to look back and see…

Have you ever been able to look back on something in your life… And it’s like you can now see, exactly how things worked out, how they so perfectly fell into place, fell into alignment, and how things that needed to happen, happened… And it’s like you can see God’s “fingerprints” all over the pages… Read More 4.7.2020 – We’ll be able to look back and see…

4.6.2020 – “We Will Feast”

This is another one of my favorites by Sandra McCracken that I want to share this morning. This song brings courage, joy, and hope, especially in times of uncertainty, and in times of trouble, in times of waiting— for me, it’s a beautiful reminder of what’s ultimately to come for us as beloved children of… Read More 4.6.2020 – “We Will Feast”

4.5.2020 – Sometimes things just happen…. in an interesting way…

Sometimes things just happen…. in an interesting way. And that’s about all we can say about the situation, in that moment. This morning I clicked on an “untitled draft” here on my blog site, and I came across this old reading that I had pasted into this “untitled draft” from an old book that we… Read More 4.5.2020 – Sometimes things just happen…. in an interesting way…

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

4.2.2020 – Like an old, favorite sweater…

How can we comfort one another in these kinds of times? We can find comfort by dwelling with Him in His Word, and reminding one another of His promises. And when we overflow in joy and in faith, we can let it overflow out into the atmosphere… I’ll admit, it’s a struggle in this time….… Read More 4.2.2020 – Like an old, favorite sweater…

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…”

The Lord keeps bringing Psalm 81 to my attention, and He did again this morning… Psalm 81 English Standard Version Oh, That My People Would Listen to Me 81 Sing aloud to God our strength;    shout for joy to the God of Jacob!2 Raise a song; sound the tambourine,    the sweet lyre with the harp.3 Blow the trumpet at the new moon,    at the full… Read More 3.31.2020 – “Oh, That My People Would Listen to Me”

I love this album of Psalms by Sandra McCracken. There’s something about music that can soothe the soul in times like these.

3.29.2020 – The Hope of Promise

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. Simple things like raking leaves out of my flower beds, weeding, and getting them cleaned up, helping Jason to build our new raised beds… 🧑🏻‍🌾🌱🌷🦋🍃☀️All the… Read More 3.29.2020 – The Hope of Promise

3.28.2020 – Almighty God

This morning I am reminded of how, in times of our greatest weakness, in times we are most vulnerable, in times we are “helpless” …and when things are about as “outside of our control” as they can possibly be…. How much more can God be God? How much more must we depend on Him? How… Read More 3.28.2020 – Almighty God

In the midst of the overwhelming noise of fear, and the distraction of conspiracy… God is speaking. 🍃☀️ He’s reminding. He’s unfolding. He’s revealing.

3.26.2020 – Time of Preparation, Renewal, and Hope

I’ve been thinking a lot about gardening lately, as we’re building some new raised beds, and getting seeds started, and preparing the land. I’ve also been thinking a lot about flowering trees, specifically flowering “fruit” trees. I have a tiny little patio peach tree that’s pretty much just a branch, and to my surprise it… Read More 3.26.2020 – Time of Preparation, Renewal, and Hope

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. I wonder what God is doing. 💖 A few of years ago, before I started dreaming regularly and before I began recalling and recording my dreams, I… Read More 3.25.2020 – His Way Leads to Healing and Refreshment
