This morning as I was driving to work, I was thanking God for everything He's given me and done for me. It is amazing (to say the least) that the God of all this would even think to give me anything more than my life and breath. Anything else is like icing on the cake.… Continue reading Cake
Sometimes I am so high and mighty, I even annoy myself. Last night I was venting to the Lord about someone. I was reading my Bible and stopped mid-chapter to let God know how I felt. There I was, laying in front of my open Bible, talking to God about how someone frustrated me. I… Continue reading Takes one to know one
"Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind. Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of his works with songs of joy."Psalm 107:21-22 It's annual evaluation time at my company soon, and I'm thinking about my time at this job. I remember the hope that welled… Continue reading Rejoice
Remember how before this year started, I had a word from the Lord for this year: Diligence? He was not kidding. He told me in I think September of last year that there would be an acceleration of a purification process and I would need to be more quick to make my decisions for or… Continue reading Taking out the Trash
This morning I was sitting in awe of the Lord and how He is everywhere at once, yet still personally and deeply involved with us. I was telling Him how awesome it is that He's over there with my Pastor and his wife, and over there with another friend of mine, and at the same… Continue reading God Knows Your Name
I heard a song on the radio this morning that frustrated me. It said, "Check your shame at the door/ you don't need it anymore/ You're in the Father's house." I think those are the lyrics. Right after I heard those lyrics, I got this picture of someone checking a coat before they came into… Continue reading Coat Check.
Yesterday I was doing my morning prayer and Bible Study before the kids woke up. I asked the Lord to fill me again. He responded with, "I can't fill you up until you're empty." I said, "Lord, empty me then and fill me again. He said, "You have to empty yourself." Then He explained it… Continue reading Make Room.
Sometimes it scares me how right on the Bible is. It seems that as I dive into it more and more, it speaks to the very situation I'm in and shows me exactly what I need to read when I need to read it. Truly, the Word is living and active (Hebrews 4:12). I know… Continue reading Viva la Resistance
"It is for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore, keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery."Galatians 5:1, NASB The more we draw near to God, the more He draws near to us. When God abides in us, His light exposes all the hidden areas of our hearts… Continue reading Free Indeed
My pastor recently told the congregation of a kind of conversation he had with the Lord (a long time ago). He was, in a way, telling God to look at what he'd done: at the time, he thought he'd helped people, had done well at this, had been good at that, etc. God's response to… Continue reading You Can’t Handle the Truth.
