Active is His Word

This morning as I picked up my Bible, I thought of the many wonderful benefits in the word of God. I think sometimes we forget the power that lies within the word of God.   Or perhaps we simply begin to take it for granted.  Yet, after more than thirty years, I continue to discover new […]

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 dry seasons. I can honestly […]

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 input is positive and not […]

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 I thought I had. Tuesday […]

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 didn’t elaborate. I simply became […]

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, Brailee had to show me […]

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 things in our natural surroundings. […]

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 remember the LORD your God, […]

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, “Stay under the shadow of […]

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 I expected.” I think that […]

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.  We simply must learn to […]

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; then whoever stepped in first, […]

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 yesterday. He does not change. […]

God’s Word Alone is Our Source

Ecclesiastes 11:4 has always been an insightful scripture to me.  As I read it today, I thought about it in an entirely different way. The scripture says, “He that observes the wind will not sow, he who regards the clouds will not reap.” I have often written on this scripture.  Previous writings have focused on […]

Works & Faith

Faith without works is dead. We have all heard this scripture but today I saw it differently. I was reading the book of James when I came to these scriptures.  For some reason I read and reread it over and over again.  Suddenly I began to see this in a whole new light.  It may […]

You Create the Atmosphere

For the past few days, I have spent more time in praise and worship than I have in some time.  This morning, as I was worshipping God, I could feel how different the atmosphere was surrounding me and throughout my home.  For that I am so very thankful. It’s been a hard few months for […]

“I Am Already There”

One night I had a dream that seemed to last all night long. It wasn’t a dream of heavy revelation. It wasn’t an encounter with God. It was just a dream. A dream about normal occurrences in my day. It was a Day in the life of Kim dream. Through the dream I would do […]

Time to Change our Focus

It is during the darkest moments of our life that we must shift our focus to clearly see the light. I thought of this one day as my daughter shared an insightful truth with me. My daughter has battled anxiety in the past.  When driving, there are some long bridges over deep waters that would […]

Sowing Deliberate Seeds

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; […]

The Wind is Here

Although my grandkids are growing up way too fast, I often think of some of the memories we have made.  This past week, as the winds became strong in my area, I was reminded of a particular time a few years ago. It was a time of kite flying. I sat on my back porch […]
