Dealing with Unrelenting Disappointment

Scripture paints a vivid picture of the love of God and how he cares for His children – it was one of the first things I discovered. God is good, all the time. However, the truth remains, if we walk with God for any amount of time, things will happen...

The Spoken Word and Holy Spirit

In Monday’s motivation, I did not say everything I wanted to say or explain what I wanted to say well. Sometimes it is difficult to get the thoughts in my mind thoroughly down on paper. Especially in a short writing. Therefore, I want to revisit that writing today, if I...

Walking Through to Freedom

Recently, I have been corresponding with a partner of this ministry who is going through an extremely difficult time. He shared with me last week a word from God that his wife gave him years ago, thinking that word may indeed be for this season. I want to share it...

All Things are Possible

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:14 (KJV) This scripture has captured my mind over the past few days. It is a very familiar scripture,...

What is in Your House? Or Hand?

In 2 Kings, we find a widow woman who is struggling during a time of famine. The prophet comes to her house and asks her a question; what do you have in your house? The woman says she has a bottle of oil and that is all she has. He...

Praise & Prayer

I once read a testimony that I want to share with you. I was reading a book by Kenneth E. Hagin. In the book he tells a story of a woman he once met who had been believing God for healing. This woman had prayed for many months and as...

Don’t Allow Fear to Stop You

Today I was thinking about something that happened when Brailee was small, maybe two or three years old. It was one weekend, Breanne, Brandon, and I were going to do some things in my yard. We wanted the kids to be entertained so we got one of those bounce houses...

The House Built Upon the Rock

There has been something on my mind for a week or so. It is a scripture, a parable found in Matthew chapter seven. As I thought about this parable, I couldn’t help but think about a story I heard several years ago. I was watching the news one night. It...

What Fruit are You Eating Today?

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in your sight God. (Ps 19:14) I thought of this scripture as I had a conversation with a friend one day. I called her to chat for a moment. When I asked what she was doing,...

Time to Prime the Pump

Sometime last year, one of our prayer partners sent me an email with a word she said was from the Lord. It was Prime the Pump. I really didn’t know exactly what it meant; therefore I looked up a simple definition of the phrase. Here is what I found. Prime...

Listen for His Voice…then Obey

A few years ago, Breanne and her husband took the kids on a trip to Gatlinburg. They had a blast! Bryson was still very small at the time; he was only four or five years old. It was all very exciting to him. One thing he had always wanted to...

Refusing Distractions

…and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in and choke the word and it becomes unfruitful. Mark 4:19 One morning, I was spending time in prayer; I was walking around my house attempting to worship God. It felt as if...

He Will Lead Us

It was early one morning; I was preparing to partake of my communion meal. As I went to place my elements on my table, the Lord spoke to me and said, “He will guide you into all truth.” I knew the scripture He was speaking of. It is found in...

Get the WORD in You!

Over the holidays I usually enjoy quiet time seeking the Lord, not only concerning the year ahead but also the previous years – I want to grow in God with every year. Therefore, I seek God for what I could have done differently and if there are changes, I need...

A Sweet Smelling Sacrifice

Today, I was reminded of a scripture found in Leviticus 2:9 which says, “It is an offering made by fire, a sweet aroma to the Lord.” In Genesis 8:20-21, we see Noah, after the flood, offering a sacrifice to the Lord. “Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and took of...

Turnaround Day

It was around 6am Monday morning. I had been awake most of the night. I have no idea why; I simply could not sleep. I didn’t feel the need to pray, or worship, I only felt exhausted. I decided to go lie on the couch and try to get an...
