Walking During the Night

It occurs to me that many of us live life by the steering wheel of fear. Trying continually to snatch it back with many failed attempts. Some examples might be the building of invisible, emotional walls around our hearts so no one can hurt us, never driving because someone we loved died tragically in a car…

Prepare for Battle

Can a soldier fight without proper education and training? Can a car run effectively without gasoline? Will a lamp shine brightly without drawing power from the electrical socket? If the answer to all these questions is “no” why do we think we can woo a lost world with the love of Jesus Christ without first-hand…

The Voice of One

“He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord…” John 1:23 I once heard it said that John the Baptist recognized the divinity of Jesus long before anyone else because it says in Luke 1:41 “And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the…

Intricate Things

Intricate details, ones that are small in comparison to the vast earth we inhabit are looked over by most. Take for instance the changing colors of leaves in the fall or the dots on the back of a tiny lady bug. When is the last time you noticed the intricate things around you? When my…

Dig Up the Old Wells

Before social media, money, jobs, and society took over the reins of our lives. There was a day when men sought God before any other thing. A day when every step of the servant was led of the Lord. A day when servants listened to the voice of Jesus rather than being deafened by all the other…

An Expression of Jesus

Is there a way to be an expression of Jesus in today’s world? Ponder on that for a moment with me. I wonder continually about this question because Christianity has been lied on by demonic forces from hell. Remember and tuck this in your heart, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against…

Don’t Suppress HIM

Step away for a while, be still, know that Hes near you sweet child. His ear is bent toward your lips. He hears you beloved. His heart overwhelmed and melted by every adoration you utter He collects every tear in His bottle. You’re the apple of His eye, the flame in His eyes, the love…

Stop Fearing His Plan!

  We all know life twists and turns with unexpected events on an almost constant basis. My ability to want to schedule everything plus unpredictable life events are certainly an equation for disaster in my mind. I’m here to confess my unrelenting ability to be a control freak. Being organized and perfectionist is a beautiful…

Royalty

I’m so drawn to the old testament book of Esther. As I run my fingers through the pages of this amazing story, I’m lost in it over and over again. It encapsulates the beauty of favor and realization of true identity. The Bible tells us that Esther had no father or mother and was raised by Mordecai,…

Now is the Time for No Distractions

Look not to the left or right, do not be distracted, don’t be taken aback by anything or anyone. You have a mission for the Kingdom of Jesus now. Time to follow His footsteps and leave all else behind. He is anticipating the feeling of your hand gripping His. He is listening for your footsteps…

Meekness is not Weakness

  I often ponder on how meek Jesus was and that some people tend to think He allowed everyone to run over top of him like a doormat. I don’t say this with arrogance.  I am a minister’s daughter and I was always a little different from most of my high school peers. I wouldn’t…
