Don’t Crash – Love Better

Today I was thinking about my granddaughter and when she first learned to ride her bicycle without training wheels. I had driven over to my daughter’s house to drop something off to her. While there, Brailee just had to show me something new she had learned. Her dad had just taught her to ride her […]

Just One Word from God

Have you ever heard a single word from God that stopped you in your tracks and lit you up at the same time? I heard such a word a few months ago. Today, God brought that word back to my remembrance. Could it be that it is for such a time as this? We’ve heard, […]

A Gift of Honor

A few years ago, God began to teach me about honor. It began with a simple lesson. I had received a personal check in the mail. It wasn’t common as most checks that come to the ministry are for the ministry. Every now and then, perhaps a couple times a year, someone will send me […]

Revisiting Days of Adversity

Recently, I have been thinking about days of adversity. While thinking on this subject, God reminded me of a word I once read by Johnny Enlow that I feel is relevant today. As I read it, my spirit leapt, and I knew it was what God was speaking. “We are in a huge, huge breakthrough […]

Refuse Fear – Embrace His Peace

As the enemy attempts to cause fear across our nation with gas prices, food shortages and new variants, I want to share a lesson the Lord taught me a few years back. “The devil needs fear to operate in your life in the same way I need faith to operate in your life.” These are […]

How God Speaks

Over the weekend, I was meditating on the many ways God speaks to His people. As you know from my writings, He speaks to me most often in simple terms. For instance, God speaks through things in our natural surroundings. Have you even been awakened several days in a row at a particular time? I […]

Cultivating His Presence

He is Lord

As many of you may know, Beni Johnson, wife of Bill Johnson of Bethel in Redding California, went home to be with the Lord after a long battle with cancer. To my surprise, Bill spoke at Sunday’s service, days after the passing of his beloved wife. His message was sobering, heart-breaking, encouraging and convicting. Initially, […]

Are We Passionate for God?

Recently, I was studying the book of Acts. It always amazes me that the outpouring of God was still going strong two years later, as we find in Acts 2. I began to think about how the people of God kept their passion for God and His works burning strong for that long.  These days, […]

One Word Away – Could it Be

I was preparing breakfast, while listening to preaching. All of a sudden, the man of God said something that captured my attention. He said, “many of you are one declaration away from breakthrough.” If we are going to see breakthrough, declaring God’s Word and promises are a must. Think about it, God created everything we […]

May We Have Streams in the Desert

“Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it?  I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”  Isaiah 43:19 This is, of course, one of my favorite scriptures!  It’s the foundational scripture for our ministry.  Perhaps that’s why the note on […]

Pressing into His Goodness

…so that every word may be confirmed by the testimony of two or three witnesses. Matthew 18:16 God always confirms His Word. At least that is my experience. He will often tell me the same thing over and again through several different people, until He gets my attention. When He does that, it is HIM, […]

Healing is Ours

While I was preparing for my day this morning, healing was on my mind. The Bible says in Mark 7, “Healing is the children’s bread.” This scripture has rolled over and over in my mind. Healing is the children’s bread. Who are the children? We are. Healing belongs to us. I don’t know how it […]

Sticks and Stones

This week while talking about the kids upcoming school year, bullying came up. Unfortunately, it is everywhere it seems. When we talk about this, I can’t help but remember a tragedy we had in our town a couple years ago. To many it may seem common. To us, it was quite uncommon. We had a […]

Seed BEFORE Need

I don’t know about you – but God often reminds me of the same things over and again. I assume He will continue doing that until it becomes second nature to me. For that, I am thankful. Recently I was praying about a personal need. After several days of praying…the Lord spoke to me and […]

The Life of a Dandelion

Every now and then God reminds me of the life of a dandelion and how relentless they are. Relentless is defined as, showing or promising no abatement of intensity, strength, or pace. It is not the season for dandelions, yet they are on my mind. I’m reminded of a day Brailee gave Breanne and I […]

The Coming Storm

“Things are heating up!” As I heard those words, I knew God was confirming what He had spoken to me earlier that day concerning a coming storm. Not only had He spoken it, but He displayed in plain sight the Word He had shared with me. That morning I read prophetic words from numerous sources, […]

Famine in the Land

As the COVID pandemic continues to wane and the anger and frustration of the 2020 election takes a back seat, a new threat is on the horizon. We only need to step into a local grocery store to see food shortages continue to be a problem. If that wasn’t enough, we  now see crop failures […]

A Set Time of Favor

You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come. Psalm 102:13 This scripture came to mind as I sat and watched what was unfolding before me. Bryson, my grandson, just turned 16. It was the day to get his driver’s license. Bryson is a […]
