Who Told You That?

It was late Saturday night, my ten-year-old granddaughter was spending the weekend with me.  This child is full of energy and never stops talking.  She had taken her bath for the night and was preparing for bedtime.  As I watched her run giggling down the hallway, this thought came to mind. “This child is full […]

Relentless like a Dandelion

This week Brailee received a gift from Kelita, a dandelion, and it took me back to something that happened a few years ago and the writing God gave me that day… Let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due time we will reap a harvest, if we do not give up. Therefore, as […]

We Shall Arise

Don’t rejoice over me, o my enemy; when I fall, I shall arise, when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me. Micah 7:8 This scripture found in Micah has been one of my favorite scriptures.  When I fall – I shall arise. As Christians, we don’t want to think that […]

Move Forward

Recently I heard a question that caused me to reflect on life, my life in particular.  The question was, “If you could go back 20-30 years, what advice would you give your younger self.” I believe this is something we should ask ourselves today – because those answers, the ones we have gained by wisdom […]

Live the Life

While I was listening to the Word of God, one scripture, that I have heard a million times, jumped in my spirit. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. (John 10:10) We […]

Who are You Hanging With?

Several times over the weekend I heard the same message preached by several different ministers.  It felt like a warning message to me, perhaps to you as well. Each message was talking about relationships.  Not only marriage, but friends as well. I believe it is more important than ever who we hang around – who […]

Surrounded

Surrounded…that’s how I felt as I opened the card from someone I had never met. 1 Thess. 5:11 says, “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” Col. 3:13 says, “Bear with each other.” This wonderful woman was being, not only a hearer of the Word, but […]

An Aroma that Rises

I have always loved the scriptures about a sweet-smelling sacrifice.  One day I was meditating on this when the Lord began to share with me, that it is not all about the smell, but what it represents. Leviticus 2:9 says, “It is an offering made by fire, a sweet aroma to the Lord.”  This scripture […]

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 […]

The Results of Fire

It was early in the morning.  My grandson and I were driving up the mountain to get freshly picked turnip greens to freeze for winter. He began to share with me something he had learned about making candy.  He told me how they heated it up until it was so hot it was pliable.  Then […]

A Time of Rest

At the beginning of this new year, Jerry Savelle gave a prophetic word about the goodness of God being poured out this year in an unprecedented way.  I have been praying and declaring that over myself, my staff and my partners. Last week I began asking God if I needed to do anything else concerning […]

Spring Forth – Sing!

I had a strange morning this week.  On my way to work I could sense God prompting me to pray about a situation I had prayed about for years. In frustration I said, “God, I don’t know anything else to pray, I have prayed everything I know to pray. Holy Spirit show me how to […]

Sunday Selah

I read something today that captured my heart. It said; before you speak, let your words pass through three gates. 1. Is it true? 2. Is it necessary? 3. Is it kind? Is it true? Don’t spread things about people that you don’t know to be truth. And don’t believe everything you hear about someone […]

What are You Expecting?

Whether you are looking at Proverbs 23:7 that says, “As a man thinketh, so is he.” Or Matthew 9 which teaches us, “According to your faith, be it unto you,”  we see from the Word of God that what we expect is essential to what our end result will become. I was thinking about this […]

When Multiplication Begins

I was reading in Matthew 14 a few days ago. It’s a familiar story found in verses 13-21. When Jesus heard it, He departed from there by boat to a deserted place by Himself. But when the multitudes heard it, they followed Him on foot from the cities. And when Jesus went out He saw a […]

Perseverance is Required

Lately, I have been hearing one resounding message, both from God and from several ministers I have listened to. The message I am hearing is perseverance is required. In this world of fast food, instant messages, microwaves…we want everything fast. In God, things do not always happen that way.  I wish they did.  I always […]

Whole Life Prosperity

3 John 1:12 is a foundational scripture for prosperity.  We hear it quoted all the time concerning this subject. It says; “Beloved, I wish above all things that you would prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.” We often use these scriptures to declare that God wants us to prosper financially, and He […]

Honoring the Voices of Your Heart

Several times each year God speaks to me about honor.  Specifically, about honoring those who have spoken into my life.  Oh, I know you have read about honor before, however, like me, perhaps you need reminding every now and then.  Today, I want to talk about…honoring the voices God has placed in your life. In […]

Good Friday

The words Good Friday have been on my mind for weeks.  It’s a holiday we celebrate every year, just before Easter.  What exactly are we celebrating?  The death of Jesus Christ.  And we call it good. Let’s take a glance back at that day. Jesus was betrayed by His disciples and Judas following the Last […]

Removing Debris

Last night the Lord gave me a dream, actually three separate dreams saying the same thing. In the dream, debris was being gathered into one place.  In the first dream, debris was coming in on every wave from the ocean.  We were gathering it up and taking it to a facility to get rid of […]
