When God determines to bless you…nothing can get in His way. Can we talk about “talking donkeys” today? How they are used in our lives to re-direct us when we’re going in the wrong direction. That’s exactly what happened with Balaam. Dabbling with the request to curse the children of Israel, he hops on his donkey, headingContinue reading “Can We Talk About “Talking Donkeys”?”
There’s so much power in our praise. It’s the song of the Lord that can sustain us in the good times and the bad. It has a way of girding us up, providing us with both the strength and support we so desperately need. Recently, I was reading a book on the origins and greatnessContinue reading “God Has a New Song for Us”
Walking in a relationship with God isn’t always definable. We can read, talk, and work for God and still feel empty. That’s because nothing can take the place of having a true encounter with Him. To experience God speaking and showing up in tangible ways. Our Christianity is not established through other’s convictions…it can only beContinue reading “What is the Holy Spirit saying to you?”
How does one ever prepare for loss? I tried and you can’t. I remember when I found out my mom had cancer, I determined to start my grief process before she even passed. Setting up counseling appointments to guarantee less pain, thinking I could bypass what was coming. I loved her so much. What IContinue reading “Blessed are those Who Mourn”
There is no greater joy than to know that we belong. We look for it our whole life. We hope that someone will want us. We hope for a place to land. I spent my young life desperately wanting family, but family failed me. I then turned to friends, only to be disillusioned, experiencingContinue reading “The Joy of Belonging”
To do great exploits for God we must be able to get close to Him. It’s so easy to look for a king to set things right. We want a king but not always The King. Why are we so afraid of getting close to the Lord? Why do we prefer substitutes to rule and reign? Continue reading “I am a Friend of God, He calls me Friend”
How could I drop to such intimacy in a matter of moments with a cornea specialist, but then again how could I not? He was talking about my eyes. One of the tests the team did, was to measure my tears. Right away the scripture came to mind, “You have recorded all my tears inContinue reading “Walking In the Light”
I think if we asked anyone if they want to be blessed, they would say, Absolutely! What if we included being broken? Maybe not so much…But so often brokenness precedes fruitfulness. Recently, I’ve been reading and meditating on a slice of scripture that I thought was basic and straightforward, only to have it unfoldContinue reading “Blessed…Broken & Multiplied”
Recently I had something old, made new. It was a Word from the Lord spoken 32 years ago. I had given my mom the verse Isaiah 43:1,2. I was sure it had been handwritten just for her. It said… “Fear not, for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; You areContinue reading “Fear Not, I am With You!”
There’s something about hearing the theme song from Rocky that makes you want to stand up and cheer. But to see people get into a ring, put on gloves, and punch each other is hard to watch. I personally prefer the gentler, more strategic moves of the wrestler. The contact sport that concentrates more onContinue reading “Have You Ever Wrestled With God?”
