Watering Our Inheritance

This morning I was awaken with the ding of a text on my phone.  As I picked it up and looked at it, I realized it was a scripture from a friend.  What my friend didn’t know is that the very thing I had been praying about all week was suddenly answered in her timely […]

A Better Harvest

“Don’t you realize, you are now eating the harvest from the seeds you sowed last season?” This is something God once spoke to me… 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, for […]

Prepare!

I am once again hearing the word prepare in my spirit. However, it is not the same kind of prepare as it was before. I don’t believe God is talking about preparing for something challenging that is about to happen – no, I believe it is the opposite. What would you do if the prayers […]

Expectations & Bitterness

I sat down in anticipation as I took a bite of the first watermelon of the season from our local farmer’s market. Several people had shared their opinion on facebook, saying how great these first watermelons were, I couldn’t wait for that first bite.   Expectation was high after the reports I had read.  However, as […]

Refusing the Weight of the World

Hebrews 12:1 says, “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.” I was thinking about this verse over the weekend, while […]

Seed in Your Harvest

I never tire of the things God teaches me and reminds me of during planting season. One day I was preparing some Kennebec potatoes to put in the garden.  I was sitting down, cutting them in quarters and halves, making sure there were several eyes present on each cutting.  That is what I have been […]

Victory in the Conflict

Are you in the middle of a conflict? I heard a statement recently that completely caught my attention. “If God doesn’t deliver you from a conflict, or if He doesn’t take you around a conflict, it is because He has equipped you to obtain victory in the conflict.” It caused me to reflect on the […]

Don’t Eat Your Harvest

As I went about planting seeds in my garden today, an email I once received from a partner came to mind.  Every now and then God reminds me of this email, and I am so glad He does. So, we were digging up some sweet potatoes today. And we got a great amount, we re-planted […]

Enter His Rest

As with most folks, there are many things I am praying about this month, even this week. There are times in our life when it seems we are bombarded with prayer requests.  There are times when it seems one thing happens after the other and we are trying to keep up. I don’t know about […]

Don’t Water the Weeds

It was the cool of the evening. I was watering my freshly planted vegetable garden. Brailee was watering her flowers. From behind me, I heard her exclaim, “don’t water the weeds!” I turned around to look at her and she repeated, “Nana, don’t water the weeds!” I laughed. However, as I laughed, I thought, “wow, we […]

We Cry Out… “Restore!”

Don’t Be Afraid

This is going to be a different kind of writing – but it is what I feel the Lord is having me to write and it is for someone – maybe even you. Yesterday, I was sitting in my prayer room, praying for peace…for myself and for our partners.  I felt the Lord wanted to […]
