  • Victorious: A word to the Church for the days we are in

    On Sunday, August 20th, the Lord impressed this word on my heart and I shared it with our congregation. I, the Lord your God, am a consuming fire. I am the God who makes days, times and seasons. And your times are in my hands.  The times of all creation are in My hands.  Make […]

  • Stamina: Strategically increasing our stamina gives us the strength to finish well

    Stamina is an urgent need if we are going to finish the race that the Lord has set before us. Therefore, we must increase our stamina. To illustrate what I mean by increasing stamina, let me use my friend as an example. My friend runs long distances and has a trainer. When she began training […]

  • Don’t Quit: Keys to ‘keeping on’ when your drive seems broken(Part 1)

    I have a problem with a serious urge to quit when things are unraveling.  Or when the uphill trudge just goes on and on with no end in sight.  I assume that it’s tightly braided into my perfectionism and my need for relentless improvement.  One of my core values (my default personality) drives me to […]

  • My Great Reward: When life takes more than it gives, get refilled

    Genesis 15:1 After this, the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield,your very great reward. ” 19 years ago, I was a single mom with four children, cleaning houses to provide for the kids and trying to figure out what happened to the […]

  • Fruit That Remains: Excerpts from my journals that nourished me and might encourage you, too!

      I live to hear the voice of the Lord. There is absolutely nothing more empowering, uplifting and life-changing for me than hearing the Father, our Creator, our Redeemer talk to me personally about what I am going through.  I yearn to hear His perspective on the external and internal struggles I’m facing and about […]

  • Chicken Soup for the Church’s Soul: Every person adds flavor!

    A few night’s ago, I made a really killer chicken soup –  if I do say so myself.  I love to make and eat every kind of soup.  It’s the most effective comfort food for me.  However, I don’t follow recipes so no two soups that I have ever made are the same.  I may […]

  • Fruit That Remains: Excerpts from my journals that nourished me and might encourage you, too!

    Fruits That Remains: Lessons from my journals. These are excerpts from journals over the years.  Some are more current than others. I love going back into my journals because I always get refreshed and re-learn the lessons that the Lord has taught me and that I have faithfully scribed. Strategies for spiritual warfare and for staying […]

  • Don’t Mess with the Perfect Recipe: The Basics of our Faith

    I love Nestle Toll House cookies.  I love them hot out of the oven when the morsels are gooey and cookies are falling apart in my hands. Is anyone else drooling right now? Mmmm….Can you smell them in your imagination right now? Now why can most of us smell and taste that chocolatey greatness in […]

  • Unqualified (Part 2): Don’t let what you lack hold you back

    What things are you called to do that you are unqualified to do?  What deep waters has the Lord called you out into that you know are over your head?  Are you facing situations that are completely out of your league and beyond your experience?  If so, you’re in the situations where God shines. Like […]

  • Thought for the day: Look Up!

    How many times do we suffer disappointment and say, “I really had my heart set on that,”? Having our hearts set on things guarantees me disappointment.  Things on this earth are temporal and people are fallible.  We are setting ourselves up for a letdown when we set our hearts on things as if we need […]
