Cast Up A Highway



We Are Both Eager!

Posted on May 25, 2018 at 7:00 AM Comments comments (0)

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...

Lessons Learned Through Depth Study

Posted on September 20, 2017 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (0)

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 ...

Depth 4 Golden Globes

Posted on September 15, 2017 at 6:50 AM Comments comments (0)

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...

Depth 3 Treasure Chest Discovered

Posted on September 13, 2017 at 7:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Rest time over; the journey to find the treasure is renewed. Continuing to swim has become more difficult, for my body is weary from its struggles. “Jesus, I am really getting tired.” He responds, “So you want to stop?” Again I realized this was a defining moment. Do I have the determination to continue? Is my will committed enough to pursue ...

We Shall Never Forget!

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 ...

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...

Depth 1 Deeper

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...

Ever Wake Up In A Funk?

Posted on August 23, 2017 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (0)

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...

A Star in the Play?

Posted on June 9, 2017 at 7:55 AM Comments comments (0)

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 ...

Walk in the Wilderness

Love You Jesus! I give my heart to You. You have everything I could ever want! Help me Jesus to be whom You call me to be. I bow before You feeling that I am no one special that You should grant me anything, but I also know that You love me enough to go through intense pain and suffering to cleanse sin from me. I know I am the daughter of a King whom I worship and adore. Just know that I will for my life t...

Somedays, Just Gotta Praise!

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 8:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Clean the counters; put the coffee on; wash my hands; look out the window. Smile. My busyness ceased for a few, as I beheld the sky full of lovely pink tinted clouds. A smile immediately burst upon my face. “O God, You are so good! Thank You for this gift!” We have so much to be thankful for, little things and big things.

Altar the Pattern

Posted on May 13, 2016 at 6:00 AM Comments comments (0)

God is so gracious! It feels like the demon of distraction has run rampant over my life in the last few weeks. I come to my quiet time, and so many thoughts take off in different directions, and my discipline goes down rabbit trails. Like Alice in Wonderland chasing the rabbit always in a hurry, off my mind goes down the hole of imagination or concern searching for things other than my Lord...

Heart of God

Listening to the sounds of the sea, I closed my eyes and saw the waves crashing against the rocks. The ever beating heart of God, they continued their unending symphony. I could feel the mighty beating heart of the Creator filling me with Himself. I did nothing but sit on that rock, sit, eyes closed, listening for what seemed like hours, allowing His rhythm to invade my soul. It filled me up like air pumped into a ...

"No Worries, Mate!"

I’m sleepy as I sit before my computer this morning. If my eyes close, I’ll surely be asleep. Yet Holy Spirit has placed a message inside of me that must be let loose through this keyboard. As the unrest in our world and in our nation is growing, It seems many people are facing 2016 with trepidation. But with full assurance, i can say, “Don’t be anxious! We serve a good God; if You also serve...

Year For Exuberance

Posted on January 13, 2016 at 6:40 AM Comments comments (0)

This cold weather reminds me of growing up in the Mid West. In the cold of winter, the dark of night would fall early. Sometimes Freddie’s Dad would build a bonfire in their back yard. It drew us kids like a bear to honey. As the blaze grew hotter we would run home to beg a potato from our Moms. Have you ever eaten a fire roasted potato? Yum! Good! We would drop it into the fl...

All praise to You Lion of Judah! My Jesus, You made it all possible. Joy is possible because of You. Thank You. Holy Spirit, You are here and I don’t know all the divine intricacies of how it all works nor do I need to.

What is, is, and I’m so glad it is! I live life with God indwelling me; now I just need to bring that truth fully into the core reality of my being. . . grab each moment retrieving it, subjecting it to this truth, living it completely as Holy Spirit directs. ...

Flesh May Howl

Posted on October 2, 2013 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)

It’s about submission. Ahhh! Such rebellion enters the soul at that word. Pride woven into the roots of the flesh stands up and howls! ‘I am great and smart and I submit to no one!’ Oh yes, it is a battle, a battle that must be fought and conquered! From Adam’s sin on, within each of us dwells the tincture of evil, and it must be cleansed for us to grow into who we were created to be. Rebellion lifts its ugly snout to roar in defiance.

Yet also within, the love o...

Journey Deeper!

Deep. The deep. Deepest ocean. Searching for You, my God! Can you not feel a pulling from deep within yourself? Oh God, a magnet is pulling us to You; and You are not found skipping on waves, but in the far down deep currents.

Peter walked on the water; we too are sometimes called to have water walking faith. Nothing is impossible with God, and when Peter kept his eyes on Jesus, he walked on the water. Then he allowed himself to be distracted by the waves and the wind, took his eyes off...
