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…

Sunday Praise & Worship (40 REAL Days)

DAY 14 Today was a super busy, but extremely blessed, day. I didn’t want to miss a day of posting so, I will share one of my favorite psalms. Since Sundays can be quite busy for our family, I will reserve Sunday posts for praise and worship. I hope you take some time to meditate…

Just Abide (40 REAL Days)

DAY 13 I believe today is the day I was kind of dreading. I don’t have much to write…at least, not yet. So, I am going to focus more on the process of my quiet time, this morning (I guess this would be the real, unrefined part that I am uncomfortable with). Even though it’s…

Restored and Redeemed (40 REAL Days)

DAY 12 Good morning (or, whenever you happen to read this)! I began my quiet time by listening to last Sunday’s (4/10/16) Encounters with the Christ sermon by Pastor Moe Diggs from Healing Place Church in Waldorf, MD. I am so thankful that I am a part of a network of churches. The Lord has…

His Presence (40 REAL Days)

DAY 11 I continued spending time in Exodus 33, this morning. I think we (myself, included) take for granted the access we have to God. And WOW, do we have access!! The One who created us, loves us, rescued us and has a plan for us, very much longs for us to spend time in…

Radiant (40 REAL Days)

DAY 10 The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks with his friend. Exodus 33:11a When I woke up, this morning, I didn’t have much of a direction as to what to study. So, I began by watching a teaching called Three Levels of Spirituality (part 2) by John Paul…
