9.25.2020 – “Hiddenness”

I’ve been thinking a lot about the word “hiddenness” lately… There is a kind of “hiddenness” that we sometimes take ourselves into…and there could be many different reasons we do this. …But there is another kind of “hiddenness” that our Heavenly Father takes us into sometimes… and it’s the beautiful, transformative, healing kind. ✨ Our… Read More 9.25.2020 – “Hiddenness”

This world is filled with all kinds of people… And of all the humans God created… He didn’t design any two of us to be the same.

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 love it when the Lord leads me to my “archive” of old journals…. and He shows me which ones to take down from the shelf to browse through… When He does this, I know He’s going to reveal another layer that perhaps I’ve never seen before… and maybe I have seen it before, but… Read More 9.21.2020 – Another Layer

You know, I never was really interested in too much when I was learning in school.

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.
