In the Dry Seasons

I often get questions about different seasons in God.  Today, I was reminded of something a partner once asked me. She asked, “I know you’ve had many experiences with God throughout your life, but have you ever had a dry season where you did not feel his presence?” Ah, the...

Sunday Selah

Meditate on this: “Again, I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of...

Weekend Reflection

Ecclesiastes 4:9 says, “Two are better than one for they have a good reward for their labor.” I love this scripture. It is truth. However, two cannot walk together, not truly, unless they are in agreement. “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with...

Who is Influencing You?

I read something from Marsha Burns recently.  It was profound and really captured my attention.  It said, Keep yourself from defilement.  This may require pulling back from activities and relationships that are not beneficial to you.  Stop and consider what and who influences you the most and make sure the...

When God Says….”Pay Attention”

When God Says… “Pay Attention”    Monday night I had a restless night’s sleep, with a jumble of dreams. Dreams are not uncommon for me.  I often dream, some God dreams and some not.  Yet I have always been able to distinguish when a dream was from God.  At least...

The Agreement of Partnership

Amos 3:3 says, "Can two walk together unless they agree?" This scripture came to mind during a conversation with a friend. We were talking about a biblical situation when she gave me her frank opinion on the subject. I didn't respond. She asked my opinion and I gave it. I...

Removing the Dead Things

I pulled in my daughter’s driveway Sunday afternoon.  I was taking the grandkids home after spending a pleasant day with them. As I pulled in, I noticed her beautiful hanging baskets on her porch.  I thought, “How nice and colorful those look!” I got out of the vehicle, as always,...

God’s Voice of Peace

 Last week we talked about the ways in which God speaks.  Today, I want to revisit hearing God’s voice. As I shared earlier, there are many ways in which God speaks.  We have talked about a few of them.  Today, I want to talk about three more. God speaks through...

Sunday Selah

The Lord is our Shepherd, we shall not lack. You know, sometimes we are happy to just get a little relief…for things to become tolerable. However, I believe we have settled for that long enough. Time to come out of that survival mentality and enter into the SHALOM way of...

Harvest from Seasons of Sowing

“Don’t you realize, you are now eating the harvest from the seeds you sowed last season?” This is something God spoke to me this week… You may recall, I shared with you how God began speaking to me in January about the scripture found in Deuteronomy 8:18; But you shall...

Weekend Reflection

In Exodus 5 we read what happened when Moses first ask Pharaoh to let God’s people go. Not only did he refuse but he put even more labor and bondage on the people. It became much harder on them, day after day. Have you ever been there? In a time...

The Center of God’s Will

"The center of His will.” I have heard this statement all my Christian walk. Today, I was reminded of a day when God showed me the depth of this phrase. I had received a gift and a letter from a pastor friend. In the midst of the letter he wrote,...

An Expected End

While watching an old western one day, I heard a statement that has stayed on my mind. In the movie, they were reading the will of a man who had just died.  He made a peculiar statement.  He said, “My end was not what I hoped, but it was what...

A God Who Speaks

I often am asked the question, “How do you know when God speaks?” For me, the answer can be simple or complex. It takes time to learn His voice.  It takes time to learn the different ways He speaks.  But He is always speaking.  His voice is all around us. ...

When God Stirs Us

“This writing stirred me.” These are the words I read from a partner email.  He was referring to a previous writing. As I read his email, my mind quickly went to John 5:4. For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water;...

Sunday Selah

God has a place prepared for us. It is ready for us to walk into. The rest is up to us. We can leave our baggage at the door and enter in…or we can allow other things from the past to hold us back. God is the same today as...
