Appointed Times and Boundaries

“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And He is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything. Rather, He Himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. From one man He…

Walking in Tandem

*This is something that I wrote seven years ago. I thought it was completely lost due to my last blog site abruptly shutting down, without warning. Thanks to Facebook Memories, I was able to copy what I shared in 2011…and present it, here. What a precious thing the Lord did, this morning, by bringing this…

Where I Belong

Have you ever been in the presence of someone who just gets you? Someone who just seems to understand where you’re coming from, no matter what you say or do? It’s as though they know you better than you know yourself. And when you are with them, walls can come down. Masks can be removed….

Do NOT Fret

In this world, it is easy to find ourselves caught up in fret and worry. And if you are worrying about something, then you are familiar with the gnawing sensation it causes in both heart and mind. There is no rest. There is no peace. But, worry and fret are contrary to what we are…

The Most Unlikely

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will…

Technical Difficulties

UPDATE: With some cleaning and updating, my computer seems to be back on track! (A giant THANK YOU!! to my husband for cleaning up my mess of a computer!) I will not be continuing my write 31 days series because it was more than just my computer struggling over the last couple of months. So,…

The Reality Is…

Today, I would just like to encourage anyone who may be struggling with something. Take a few moments to read and meditate on Psalm 27: The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked advance…

Waiting…

Today, I would like to talk a little bit about waiting. God has a purpose and a plan for every person He has created. God will place a longing in us – a call – that fills us with hope and drives us forward. Sometimes He gives us a glimpse (a prophecy; a dream; a…

Faith and the Holy Spirit

Last time, I talked about settling God’s TRUTH in our heart so that we can maintain our true identity, even in difficult times. Today, I would like to talk about faith and relying on the Holy Spirit. Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of…

Settle It

When it comes to our identity, and trusting in who we are in Christ, there are a lot of opportunities to get distracted. Opposing messages come from the enemy; the world; even our own mind. This is why it is ESSENTIAL to be in the Word – everyday. We need to know what God’s Word…
