Do you remember, as a child, the eagerness inside on Christmas Eve? Or at the arrival at a much loved vacation place? Or the visit of a special friend? It’s that jump up and down excitement with eyes sparkling and a wide grin splitting the face. That is the feeling inside of me when I think about living with my God face to...Read Full Post »

Seems I need my pride kicked around a bit. I ‘even I’ (LOL) fall prey to evil temptations. Today I awoke with a gloomy cloud over my head; no amount of shaking seemed to loosen it~ until I sat down in my quiet time with my precious Lord. He reminded me that it is my right to evict that evil little demon from my mind and from my home. It had no right here! So I spoke words of eviction ou...Read Full Post »

Good morning, my Lord! I am so blessed to call You “my Lord”! Who am I that You should be mindful of me? I am Your servant, Lord; yea, unworthy though I am, You have called me daughter, adopted me into Your family. You are my Father, God, and I love You. You are so good to me! You love me despite my weaknesses and mistakes. Your love is perfect and all encompassing.
David asked a question similar to mine;...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 »

Lord, all things raise up and praise Your holy Name! Even the little critters praise You. Birds come and sit on our fence looking over the situation. Sometimes they burst into song, and I find myself wondering what spirit inside them is filling their breast waiting to flow forth? What do these little birds know of the Creator? Is it the realization that they are a small part of something larger? If they have ...Read Full Post »

The other morning as I sat talking with the Holy Spirit, He answered a question with a story~
"When God created us, He placed inside each of us a womb."
[Now I thought that was a ‘different...Read Full Post »

A two day trip brought us to a small town in Illinois, our destination for the rest of the week. Our brother-in-law had gone home to be with the Lord, and we had come to celebrate his life.
There is joy and sadness in death. Joy that a loved one had returned home to be with the Lord for all eternity. A sadness that his physical presence would be missed by us earth bound friends and relatives. Even the skies cried wit...Read Full Post »

Good morning, my Lord! In all things You are wonderful! Looking out the window where last week there were black spider web branches, I now enjoy green leaves dancing in the sun. You Lord designed our world this way, ever changing seasons. Like my life which seems to transgress through seasons too. These end times have brought much variety to life, not always good. We have a good man as presid...Read Full Post »

Lord Lord! You are mighty and You stand with muscled arm, fiery eyes, a thunderous voice, and a vigorous love in your heart for us. Lord, my God, before You I bow. You are Holy and it is only by Your love and grace that I can approach You at all. Your goodness is a sun of light that pierces my eyes; I cannot look at it. It is only by Your grace that I can have a taste of Who You are. Jesus came that we migh...Read Full Post »

Like a child I humbly bow before Your throne my God. I repent that the enemy has persuaded me to doubt You, even momentarily. Now I am up and know that I know that You love me and take care of me. When Your Word speaks:
Isaiah 55:11 AMP
So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; It will not...Read Full Post »

Holy Spirit. You love us, and we are called to love You and our sisters and brothers too. Jesus, please teach us how to do that well.
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighb...Read Full Post »

I invited a young friend over for coffee one day. We began to chat. She had been contemplating getting baptized. So, she said, “Why should I get baptized?” I could not think of a better teacher than Jesus; so I let Him speak:
Romans 6:5-14 (MSG)

This morning I was looking at some Scriptures in King James Version and others, and it came to me that social media fits right in. We text message all the time, and we convey many thoughts to friends this way. I agree that sometimes it is misused to convey a thought that should be shared face to face, or at least voice to voice (phone call). . . you know those messages you need to make but don’t want the...Read Full Post »

Planting seeds is the beginning of harvest. That's what we tried to do at our anniversary party. . . plant seeds. Some probably thought it inappropriate, but with so many dear ones gathered together, God nudged us to share the Gospel message with them. We so want our friends and relatives to be with us in eternity, but some have rejected Jesus and chosen their own beliefs. I just pray as death nears their doors...Read Full Post »

Lord, time is slipping and sliding by, and I am on the sidelines watching it as I would a flooding river grabbing everything in its way to carry along. I am horrified and fascinated at the same time. Horrified at its roaring domination on its uncaring journey; fascinated by it’s raw power. Time swiftly passing does the same, except there is a power of good that is within my...Read Full Post »

I sometimes fall into thinking I am the king of my own little world. I’m doing ok. Then, I hear a still small voice calling me by name. I want to run away; but dragging my own little world behind me makes slow progress. So, ok I will come; and with that acceptance I find myself before Your holy throne, Lord.

It's not all about me. It's all about how I can fulfill God's purpose for my life. From the time in the womb, God created me for a purpose, and Lord, my God, I choose to move forward in You. With all my heart I seek to actualize what You placed in me. Let me be a lighthouse and You the fire within to warn and to guide.
My friends, our lives are in the hands of Holy Spirit. The Holy Word says to make your body a sa...Read Full Post »
