The Mystery of Light (40 REAL Days)

DAY 27 Yesterday was a super-blessed day! My husband and I had the pleasure of watching a sweet couple get married and then we sent our oldest son off to his first prom! It was a day that extended well past midnight, so I did not wake up quite as early as I was hoping…

Know Christ – Walk in the Light (40 REAL Days)

DAY 26 The Word of Life [I am writing about] what existed from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life [the One who existed even before the beginning of the world, Christ]— and the…

The Light of the World (40 REAL Days)

DAY 25 Spent a lot of time in prayer and intercession, this morning. The devil makes me so angry! My heart breaks for those who are being deceived by him…especially the ones who are being deceived and they have no idea. What’s worse is that when they speak, their words are so close to the…

React or Reflect (40 REAL Days)

DAY 24 Something has been weighing pretty heavily on my heart and I feel like addressing it, today. It concerns how we (Christians) behave on social media. There always seems to be one thing, or another, stirring up controversy at any given time. And there is no shortage of opinions (or vitriol) concerning said controversies….

Good and Evil (40 REAL Days)

DAY 23 I’m afraid I’ll need to cheat a little, today. The day has been filled with a whirlwind of activity and I haven’t been able to complete what I started writing, this morning. I’ll finish tomorrow morning and post it, then. In the meantime, however, I would like to share an episode of Dreams…

Scripture – Weekly CHALLENGE (40 REAL Days)

DAY 22 I didn’t have a lot of time to spend in the Word, worship and prayer, this morning. We have family visiting and I have to head to Annapolis to meet a friend and pick up one of my kiddos. Since I do not have a lot of time to write today, I’m going…

Sunday Praise & Worship (40 REAL Days)

DAY 21 It’s Sunday praise and worship! Psalm 139 You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise;
 you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down;
 you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my…

Doing What the Father Does (40 REAL Days)

DAY 20 Spent some time in prayer, this morning. It included repenting for continuing to try to do things in my own power instead of staying plugged in to the Father and doing things His way. Sometimes I’m really good at listening – other times, not so much. When I find I’m slipping and trying…

Focus! (40 REAL Days)

DAY 19 Woke up this morning feeling better than I have, all week. For those who have lifted me up in prayer…THANK YOU!! I’m still having a difficult time focusing on study and prayer…probably because I’m not getting much sleep. I guess that’s pretty much how it goes. We do well for awhile. We carve…

For God So Loved… (40 REAL Days)

DAY 18 Being in the Word, daily, is like any other discipline. And just like any discipline, if there is a rift in your routine, it isn’t always easy to get back on track. That’s kind of how I’m feeling, this morning. Although better than the last three days, I’m still feeling pretty lousy and…

Been Sick… (40 REAL Days)

DAY 17 For those who are following me on this 40 day journey…I apologize for not posting, yesterday. I have what appears to be the flu with possible strep throat. My fever hovered between 100 and 102 all day, yesterday. I continue to run a fever, today. I’ll admit, I haven’t really spent any time…

Treasure! and a weekly CHALLENGE (40 REAL Days)

DAY 15 This morning, I began by praying…praising and thanking God for who He is and what He has done…and I needed to repent of some stuff, too (it’s always something). I read through a new devotional that I just started receiving. It’s called “Praying the Names of God.” I signed up for it through…
