High in the sky an eagle soars, his movements purposeful and precise. Without warning wings folded, it dives swiftly earthward until its extended claws grab its prey. Dinner is served.
Lord, You designed the eagle, its warrior face and strength indicating its character. The ea...Read Full Post »

If you watch TV, at some point you must have seen those TV commercials advertising laundry detergent? See two stained shirts and with XYZ detergent the stains come out in the wash totally gone and "our little boy’s shirt is like new". Well that brought to mind how our life works under Jesus. The other day I was journaling and Holy Spirit convicted me that what I was writing r...Read Full Post »

God is so delightful! Here I sit on a rainy morning enjoying my quiet time with the Lord. Suddenly, glancing out the window, my eyes behold huge snowflakes lazily tumbling from the sky. I am distracted as I continue to just sit and watch. God is so good! He delights in blessing us with little joys like this touch of beauty! My heart overflows with love for my Father.

My Lord You have been guiding me to discover Your purpose for my existence: to reach the unloved with Your love flowing thru me, Your Words speaking on the page and from my mouth. There are so many living in darkness these days! Let Your light shine through me. My heart's desire is to serve You.
I’ve discovered that as I go over these 4 blogs on going deeper with God again, they are even more meaningful. They showed me I need to refocus on God’s promises, His Word, again to ...Read Full Post »

Here I am at the bottom of the sea with Jesus and the Treasure chest. It’s been an exhausting swim, but valuable in strength building and learning! Now the goal is within reach. The front of the chest has a buckle holding it shut tight. Releasing it; already escaping from opening cracks is a bright golden light. Gently lifting the lid, amazement fills my soul. What is cont...Read Full Post »

Lord, my God! Yesterday was the 16th anniversary of 9/11/. We remember the attack of terrorists on our land. You did many miracles that day. You saved many lives~ some through little things that made people late getting to work in the world trade center~
a phone call, a dirty diaper, spilled coffee, traffic tie up. These small incidental occurrences (Your handiwork) saved lives. However many ...Read Full Post »

Somehow Jesus You have sustained me here in the depths of the sea. My lungs are no longer desperately crying for oxygen, my mind is focused on You. You know where the Treasure is, and You are leading me there. What is the Treasure? It’s why I have chosen to undertake this journey. The treasure is discovering what is in the heart of the Creator. What plans? What thoughts? What strategy, proposals, wa...Read Full Post »

I discovered inspiration in a teaching by Pastor Marie Helene-Moulin, who heads a prayer ministry in France when she says:
“But with the prayer, the Church on earth is an expression of the thoughts of God. And that’s really what we want. And there are arrangements, there are settings, there are ways, there is gold that only can be found in Him. And we have the privilege to be a coworker with Chri...Read Full Post »

We lift up our brothers and sisters in Houston asking God to provide comfort in this time of great loss. As flood waters decrease, the count of those who lost their lives continues to rise as death claims souls who were unable to escape the flood waters. Some survivors are suffering from lost family members and friends; plus many have lost their homes and everything in them. It's a great tragedy and many in our nation ar...Read Full Post »

Lord we lift up our brothers and sisters in Texas asking You to protect them and provide them with their needs. Help them Lord and guide them. Let Your wisdom prevail with our leaders in all areas to bring restoration.
I have seen the enemy’s plans.

"Lord I see this army of evil that has risen against us in this nation. It has been planned for a long time, and continues to rush in...Read Full Post »

Recently was reminded of a truth that I needed. Don't know about you, but sometimes, especially when I'm tired, the enemy can slip a negative into my soul. Not long ago there was an occurrence that looked in the natural like something was gonna turn out bad. It was almost a certainty, a done deal. But a whisper in my spirit said, "Pray". Then I saw this reminder~
God is not hampered by time and space....Read Full Post »

It is so encouraging to get reminders from God! A recent Global Prayer Alert Network letter really lifted my spirits, and so I wanted to share a part of it with you:
The following prophecy was delivered by Brother Kenneth Copeland on October 11, 2013:

How sweet is the presence of the Lord! I have been in a recuperation process from surgery. It has been going really well; but the muscle healing gets to aching in the middle of the night and wakes me up. So I usually get up and lay on the couch, take a small pill, and read. It’s a quiet time; it’s dark out. The other night there was a thunderstorm, and what began to glimmer in ...Read Full Post »

Matthew 16:25 MSG
Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is...Read Full Post »

What’s it like to have fellowship with the Lord? Can a fish live out of the water? Would an eagle be happy earthbound? Could a bear sleep soundly without a cave? Is an elephant happy alone without it’s herd? We were created to live in a close relationship with our Creator God. There is a hole in us that can only be filled with His Presence. We can only fill our own pot...Read Full Post »

God loves us so much! We are so precious to Him! Yet, some walk out their days without one thought of God. Others scorn Him and fight to delete Him, not just from their lives, but also from our country. Many have forgotten or perhaps never even knew the gentleness and magnificence of His love for us.
One of my favori...Read Full Post »

Hello my friends! I've had technical problems with my blog, but hopefully they are now cleared up and we can get back on our track of 2/week.
During this time I have also had hip surgery, so my life has been in the healing mode~ hopefully my body and program are recovering quickly!

Tears flowed down her face. Despite her prayers, the infant has died. Did her prayers mean nothing? "God, don’t You hear me? Are Your promises true or not?"
Pain has a way of chaining our heart to doubt. How do I come out of that? How do I become strong enough to defeat the enemy’s deceitful ways of chaining me down...Read Full Post »

In this day many are struggling. Times are getting better, but it won't happen over night. And so we do have these feelings~
Overwhelmed. Depressed. Dread. Fear. Sometimes we experience difficult situations like job loss, financial distress, sickness, or a sick child, which can lead to relationshi...Read Full Post »

Last night: Toss and turn. Scratch the itch. Bend the knees. Turn over. That was the physical body. But the mind was the biggest deterrent to sleep; felt like a game of “keep away” with the ball being tossed here and then there, and soon as I thought I caught it, away the thought would fly. You know too, the night is when the devil loves to bring negative thoughts to mind. Last night he was true to form. It got to the point where I threw myself down weeping before God’s thr...Read Full Post »
