  • Girlfriends: For better or worse

    When I was in sixth grade, I was bullied all year by two girls in my class. I know that in this day and age of Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter, bullying has gone to new levels of cruelty that I doubt I could have survived. I barely survived the one year of torment I endured […]

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

    While in my daily devotions this morning, the Holy Spirit brought this phrase to my mind: “Do not make the Word of God of no effect.” Yikes! What does that mean?? I knew I had learned that Scripture from the Bible and that Jesus had said it, but I couldn’t recall where or to whom […]

  • Workout your thought life!

    If I could stay in bed, sleep in and still stay fit, I would do it. While I enjoy the camaraderie of my workout classes, if I could avoid the intense exertion five out of seven mornings a week, I would totally do it! But because I enjoy being fit and keeping my weight and […]

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

      I can’t take it anymore! I’m so overwhelmed I feel like I’m going to have a breakdown! Have you every felt like that? I have – many times! On one such occasion, I had been trying to make everything work in my own strength but I was in a season where there were too […]

  • Jesus isn’t Spider Man – He is the Son of Man: So how did he do the miracles he did?

    Was Jesus like Spider Man?  Was He human one minute, changing into a superhero the next?? I used to struggle silently with these questions because it made no sense to me how Jesus could operate at such a miraculous level.  It seemed to me as though God gave Jesus an unfair advantage during his life […]

  • Thought for the Day: You can hear God speak to you. (Yes, you!)

    Every now and then, my morning journaling time becomes more about what the Lord is saying to me than the other way around.  These are the times that I feel as though I have hit the bulls-eye in my devotion time.  After all, what’s more meaningful – pouring out my prayers and requests to the […]

  • Chain Breaker: Keys to breaking free from depression and anxiety (Part 2)

    (This is Part 2 of the message, Chain Breaker: Keys to overcoming depression and anxiety. See the last post for Part 1) God’s presence is our refuge. Psalm 62: 8 and 9 says, “Patiently wait for God alone, my soul! For He is the one who gives me confidence. He alone is my protector (my […]

  • Thought for the day: Holding unforgiveness against those who have hurt us is as self-destructive as drinking poison hoping that the other person will die.

    Thought for the day: Holding unforgiveness against those who have hurt us is as foolish and self-destructive as drinking poison hoping that the other person will die. Unforgiveness is a trap of the enemy based on legalism.  Legally, we have the right to hold people’s offenses against them.  We have the right be feel angry, […]

  • The Season of Breakthrough: It’s time to go to the next level

    On Sunday, May 21st, the Lord impressed this word on my heart and I shared it with our congregation. (See note at bottom of post.) I the Lord declare that this is a new season.  This is a season of Breakthrough – a season where you are rising to another level. This is a season […]
