With All Your Heart

Start where you are. Do what you can. With what you have. This week I have heard this statement or something similar in different ways from different voices.  God, through these words, has captured my attention.  And I am obeying His voice. You see, God has put a few things in my heart to do […]

Psalm 23:6; Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever. Psalm 33:5; He loves righteousness and justice; The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. Once I completed looking up scriptures, I felt the Lord led me […]

Weekend Reflection

In the Webster’s1828 dictionary, goodness is defined as; kindness, benevolence, acts of kindness and favor shown. One part I love of the definition is acts of kindness.  I often talk about doing acts of kindness.  As we do acts of kindness, we are also sowing a seed for a harvest of His acts of kindness […]

Words that Water

A man has joy in giving an appropriate answer, and how good and delightful is a word spoken in due season, (at the right moment) how good it is!  Proverbs 15:23 Chances are, at some point in each of our lives, we’ve been on the receiving end of a word spoken in due season. Perhaps […]

Effects of Anger

Lately, I am hearing a portion of scripture in my heart, at least once a day. “Anger rests in the bosom of a fool.” Eccl. 7:9 says, Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, for anger rests in the bosom of fools. It seems to me that disproportionate anger is lurking everywhere these days. On […]

God, I Give You Thanks

A statement has been on my mind for weeks now.  Actually, two phrases.  One is a heart of thanksgiving.  The other is a thank offering. These statements caused me to reflect on something that happened to me this past week. One day last week I awoke with a toothache.  It took me by surprise because […]

Be Encouraged

I don’t think I have ever dealt with as much discouragement as I have this week.  It’s not coming from the world, but from the body of Christ. It’s coming from those who are strong in God.  Those who seek Him daily. I understand.  I, myself, have had to refuse to watch the news.  Refuse […]

Preparing for Winter

As the temperatures drop and mornings become crisp and cool, I find myself thinking about something I do each year – prepare for winter. I thought about last year, when I not only prepared myself for winter – but helped others prepare as well.  Whether it was preparing water pipes, chopping wood, or picking up […]

Sweet Smelling Sacrifice

After writing Friday’s motivation, the Lord continued to talk to me about a sweet-smelling aroma. He shared with me that it was not about the smell at all, but what it represents. Leviticus 2:9 says; It is an offering made by fire, a sweet aroma to the Lord. This scripture was referring to grain offerings. […]

One Word from God

Saturday morning began like every other Saturday.  However, as my feet hit the floor, I realized I was weary from the challenges of the previous week. It wasn’t anything personal.  It was with the negative things going on in our nation. I had long stopped reading facebook posts.  I no longer watched the news.  It […]

Weekend Reflection

In every season there are things to learn. This is one thing I am learning. Fill the empty spaces with good things…with GOD things. And life will never have to go back to normal, it will forever be far above normal. It will be the zoe life God always meant for you to have. God […]

Getting to the Root of Things

“There are three levels of attack coming upon our nation.” Those words from a recent prophecy repeated like a loop in my mind. My first impulse was dread. It felt ominous. But seconds later, God dropped His perspective in my heart regarding the prophetic warning. At that moment, I wanted to do a happy dance. […]

My friend, I don’t know what type of storm you find yourself in today, but this I do know.  You can trust Him in the storm.  It may rage around you, shouting to you.  Don’t listen.  Keep your eyes upon God, He will keep you in peace.  Keep your ears tuned in to His voice, […]

What Has God Said?

I woke up this morning with this question in my heart… “what has GOD said?” I know what the media is saying. I know what people are saying, but what has God said? Isaiah 46:8-9 says, “Remember this, and show yourselves men; Recall to mind, O you transgressors. Remember the former things of old, for […]

Eating – A Sign of Life

While watching a documentary one night, a statement was made which caused my spirit to jump within me. The documentary was about a foal that was just born in the middle of winter.  It was having a very hard time.  It was not moving at all, barely breathing.  The family called the vet to come […]

Power in Words

Sometimes kids amaze me.  Especially when they throw the words you have been trying to teach them back at you. The other day, Breanne and I, were having a conversation about work.  I made the following statement… “If we are going to do this project, we should do it now.  We don’t always have good […]

Ready….March!

Tuesday afternoon I was spending time with the Lord.  I had spent time reading the word and studying for upcoming writings. I stood up to take a break, as I had just completed writing my partner letter for the month of March. Suddenly, yet quietly, the Lord spoke to my heart and said, “you are […]

Mid-Week Mindset

Read Judges 6; Gideon defeats the enemy against ridiculous odds. It made no earthly sense. Supernatural intervention – (the third marker of this time/season) …the way things come about make no earthly sense. (Angel visits Gideon and gives him a strategy – pairs the army down, etc.) Remember, when the WHOLE army was assembled the […]
