8.14.2020 – “Is God able to share His secrets with me?”

8.12.2020 – “Am I being authentically me?”

I have to ask myself that question from time to time… This morning, the Lord took me back through my dream journal for 2019, and I came to one of my dreams, and in this dream I was frantically “looking, looking, looking” for a place, a bathroom, where I could change into some “better looking… Read More 8.12.2020 – “Am I being authentically me?”

8.10.2020 – The “Foreshocks”

We had a 5.1 earthquake in North Carolina yesterday—apparently it was the first one of this kind of magnitude we’ve had in the state in over 100 years. We’re definitely not used to earthquakes around here—at least not the natural ones. As I was reading about the earthquake in the news yesterday, the thing I… Read More 8.10.2020 – The “Foreshocks”

8.7.2020 – “When did that happen? When did that change?”

There is this mysterious “way” that He does things… this way of His that is so “hidden above the surface” of what our eyes can see…. “that thing we never thought we’d be doing”— and yet suddenly… we find ourselves doing that thing.

8.4.2020 – He can do Wonders with His Brush 🎨🖌

In the moment we take hold of His hand… He begins to prepare, sanctify, purify, dedicate, and reserve us—to make us holy and consecrated for His purpose… He takes us to a place of being “set apart”… “designated or separated for a particular use.” God’s ways are so far beyond our ways—He does things we… Read More 8.4.2020 – He can do Wonders with His Brush 🎨🖌

8.1.2020 – This goes out to the “Black Sheep”

This morning as I was sitting here, I thought of the term, “black sheep.” This term means, “a member of a family or group who is regarded as a disgrace to them.” “In the English language, black sheep is an idiom used to describe an odd or disreputable member of a group, especially within a family.

There is a battle raging… …and it’s all about “the voice.” My voice, your voice, the voice of the body of Christ as a whole. What happens when the enemy finds a way to “silence” us?
