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 »

The grandness of our God is evident to all with eyes to see. The universe as revealed by Hubble Telescope is huge and beautiful.
Looking at the earth itself, we can gasp at the loveliness of mountain scenes, water cascading over rock cliffs, tiny flowers peeking up through a small cleft in a rock on a trail.

Easter approaches on swift wings of time; and as we celebrate this beautiful season, prayers of love and thanksgiving are offered to Jesus, the Son of God, who gave up His divine heritage to become fully human. Why would He do this? He knew His end before He began living this choice, and it meant separation from His Father and a painful death. So why?
There is but one reason: God’s love for us required...Read Full Post »

Praise You mighty God! You will not stand for the enemy’s continuing to come against and trying to subvert President Trump whom You placed as head of our government. There are many standing in the gap for him and for the USA. Thank You Lord! You are mighty and strong and what You will, shall be! I want to shout out~ I LOVE YOU LORD! COME LORD JESUS!
To what can I compare t...Read Full Post »

What a wonderful God we have! 'He created us to know Him and to love Him and to serve Him on this earth so we can be happy with Him in heaven'. This is right out of the Baltimore catechism from long long ago. I grew up learning it. It is truth simplified.
When God created first man, He knew He must give men free will to choose. He also knew that free will could c...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 »

Jesus walked the earth with purpose. He was obedient to His Father God, and He was in love with us. Therefore, He wanted to teach us how to join in the amazing relationship with God that He created us to have together; we are His children and He loves us.
That’s why when satan seduced Adam into betraying God, God had a plan set up to rescue us from damnat...Read Full Post »

My spirit has been yearning for something; this morning it came clear~ holiness, peace and quiet joy. Where do I find this in the hustle and bustle of this season? It is a beautiful time to celebrate the birth of a Savior! Why all this pressure and busyness? It does not belong!
Decided to go to my quiet place and close my eyes. It’s late evening as I find myself in ...Read Full Post »

John 6:53 (AMP)
53 And Jesus said to them, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood [unless you believe in Me as Savior and believe in the saving power of My blood which will be shed for you], you do not have life in yourselves.

Hey, my friends, I stumbled across a Scripture that I really enjoyed. This translation is in the Message Bible whose accuracy isn’t what some of the others are, but its language sometimes brings clarity. i will share part of it with you:
Romans 9:27-33 (MSG)

Lord another month is about to fall off the calendar. The year has been so full and gone so swiftly, I want to slow it down. I want more time with You, my Lord. So this morning I must capture my thoughts, thus I command: "Quiet mind; quit the racket. Just be still and
Hear what my Lord would say to me":
Quiet your body as well Mary. Yes you look at the respo...Read Full Post »

My friends, as you know I have written a book called “Cast Up A Highway”, and perhaps you are wondering where that title came from. Today I'm going to share the story of the book with you.
Long ago and not too far away, there were a couple of days when I was feeling grunchy, like Linus with a cloud over my head, and that’s just not like me. S...Read Full Post »

It is our Almighty God!
I could see it reflected in the mirror~ the golden sky. Grabbing my camera I rushed out to the street so I would not miss anything. Clouds that were golden began sliding into rich orange-red. Click. click. I began collecting another illustration of the deep love of our God. Do you also stop sometimes and think on the beauty God created here for us to enjoy? He did it...Read Full Post »

As time continues its race dragging us into our future, I want to put my heels down and say “WAIT! I want to rest." I want to have Jesus’ rest where I just know His truth and walk thru my days; because sometimes I get too bunched up~ so many things seem to be pushing from behind calling for me to settle them. Then my mind wonders ahead and all the requirements are yelling at m...Read Full Post »

In a previous blog I spoke of a door and I could only see the light under it, but I was excited to go through the Door. Now I find this Scripture:

Another answer to Morgan Freeman's search for God has to be faith. So what is faith?
According to Webster’s Dictionary there are various definitions of faith: The assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another; firm and earnest belief on probable evidence of any kind; belief in what is given forth as a revelation of man’s relation to God and the infinite; a settled conviction in re...Read Full Post »
