Just Begin… (40 REAL Days)

DAY 40! I keep looking up at what day I’m on and I’m having a hard time believing it. 40 days. My hat goes off to those who blog on a daily basis…especially if there are kids at home. I enjoy writing, everyday. But there is a difference between writing – and preparing a post…

Healing Balm (40 REAL Days)

DAY 39 This morning (and entire day, actually), I have just wanted to shut out the world and spend time in the Word. To hear from my Abba, Father. My emotions have been rather raw, lately. I think I really need the sun to return… As I was flipping the pages of my Bible, heading…

Revelatory Gifts (40 REAL Days)

DAY 38 So, I guess on the heels of yesterday’s post, I would like to talk a little about some struggles I’ve had over the years…and continue to have, today. This is NOT to bash the Church. I love the people of God – even in all of our stumbling and messiness. But I’ve been…

In Spirit and In Truth (40 REAL Days)

DAY 37 “But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship Him. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:23-24 ESV (emphasis mine) Some of the…

Supreme Over All (40 REAL Days)

DAY 36 I’m currently working on something that I was hoping to post today; however, it is not ready to be published, yet. I don’t want to not post something, so I will share a passage that gave me pause as I was searching the Word, this morning. It was an awesome (and timely) reminder…

Sunday Praise & Worship (40 REAL Days)

DAY 35 Sunday Praise and Worship! This Sunday, I am sharing the Scripture from which this blog was started. Be blessed! The man brought me back to the entrance to the temple, and I saw water coming out from under the threshold of the temple toward the east (for the temple faced east). The water…

Just Be Held (40 REAL Days)

DAY 34 Kim asked: So I mentioned last week that a song played on the radio and brought tears to my eyes…it was what I needed to hear at that very moment from God….to just be held. Has God ever showed you a moment that you just needed to let go and be held as…

In Secret (40 REAL Days)

DAY 33 I continued to hang out in Matthew 6, this morning. As I was studying prayer – the Lord’s Prayer, specifically – I kept seeing something else. “Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” (Matthew 6:4, 6, 18) I love how God sees us. He doesn’t just see…

Meditating in the Word and in Prayer (40 REAL Days)

DAY 32 Today was a rough day. Those of you who are familiar with my blog know that I have a history of battling depression. I’m happy to say that I have gone almost three full months without a single bout of depression. That is…until today. I am also dealing with a great deal of…

Shut the Door (40 REAL Days)

DAY 31 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. Matthew 6:6 (emphasis mine) Today, I continued to spend some time going over the notes I took from The Prayer Room…

Our Will (40 REAL Days)

DAY 30 Wow…day 30! I’m feeling the need to linger, a bit, with the John Paul Jackson teaching on prayer (The Prayer Room). I actually spent about an hour going through the first sixteen minutes…and I still feel like I need to go back over it, again. I love when God has me stay and…

Prayer…and the weekly CHALLENGE (40 REAL Days)

DAY 29 I’ve had a morning of family members either waking up late…or early. Neither worked out in my favor as far as having quiet time, this morning. I did finally get to sit down after putting the youngest on the bus and starting the first of about 5-6 loads of laundry (we’ve been busy…)….
