An Encouraging Word From Our Heavenly Father
Seems pretty cheeky to say one can hear from God and even cheekier to share it with others. But if there’s a chance of this soothing hearts and encouraging us to trust God when we’re discouraged, then I’m sharing. Feel free to pass this on if it resonates with you. Blessings, y’all. The text of […]
Grieve, Mourn & Wail–Joy is On the Way
So often I go through day after day kinda forgetting that I’m surrounded by people who are dying and moving toward an eternity without God.
When the reality of that fact breaks through, even a moment, its unbearable.
The Way Is Open
The way is open. He who defeated death and walked out of the grave blew the door of death off its hinges. He lives, will never die again, and keeps the way open. The way is OPEN. His arms are open wide to YOU. Come as you are. Step over the old bones of […]
3 Tips for Powerful Prayers
About ten years ago our family was wading through some of the most trying, exhausting circumstances of our lives. One of our kids was going through a very painful era and, to help him in the only way possible at the time, we began homeschooling. Now I felt like I was trapped with a lion in a cage every day without even the break of packing him off to school for a few hours.

Holy Is His Name
From: Images for Holiness: http://alturl.com/kx8e8Holy. That description can only apply to One. God is Holy. There is not even a shadow of a hint of sin or fear or despair or sickness or bitterness or unforgiveness in Him. Not. One. Drop. Therefore, the more we immerse ourselves in Him, the more we call on His […]
The Cross Through Jesus’ Eyes
Recently, to honor the passing of one of our favorite actors, my family viewed the incredible movie Dead Poet’s Society. In one iconic scene, Robin Williams, as the eccentric Professor Keating, tells his students that he steps up on his desk to “remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way.”
A Prophecy of Hope
Over the past decade of daily prayer, I’ve often wondered that God has never sounded the alarm in my heart instructing us to stockpile, build a stronghold or otherwise prepare for tribulation. This morning, He spoke of the coming shaking but it was in an entirely different tone.
