Ten Minutes Listening- July 12 2018

This morning my baby (Judah) woke up at 5:30. Not my best time! However, I decided to try and use it to my advantage. You may recall I sometimes like to set a timer for 10 minutes just to be quiet and tune into what the Lord may be saying. Often times I find this exercise is beneficial not just for myself but also for anyone else who reads it. Here’s what I believe the Holy Spirit spoke to me […]

Because He can…

Last night Rick & I read Matthew 9:18-38. This is a passage with Jesus going to heal someone and on the way, He ends up healing a woman who couldn’t stop bleeding for 12 years. Then He raises a girl from the dead, and restores the sight of two blind men. I started pondering the words of the woman and the blind men who were healed and what they did, as well as what Jesus said. she thought, “If I […]

He Removes the Veil

“But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed.” 2 Corinthians 3:16 Tonight Rick and I read 2 Corinthians chapter 3. This verse stuck out to me. The context is saying that the glory of the New Covenant is more glorious than the Old Covenant. Moses delivered the law on the tablets and had to place a veil over his face because of how bright it was (Exodus 34:34-35), and there is still a veil over those who […]

Small Beginnings

I got an email today about Asheritah’s new book “Jesus is Enough”, which is a Bible study on Colossians. I sat jealous for a minute, thinking something along the lines of, “Well, I guess I won’t be able to create a study on Colossians then,” like she just took the wind out of my sails or something ridiculous like that. As if no one ever before has written about the book of Colossians. As if no one will ever again […]

Blogging again…

So, it seems I am back to the blogging life. Well, at least the writing life. As my newest baby (Judah!) has turned 6 months, I’ve been feeling a little pull, a little tug here and there from the Lord to start writing again. As usual, I have no idea where to start, but He usually shows up once I obey and follow His lead! Unfortunately, time has lapsed since my last blog post…about two years time…and I’ve forgotten how […]

A New Perspective

The Lord spoke to me the other day and I want to share it with you. I pray He will speak to you through this too. Please let me know if you have been touched by it or if you need prayer. Remember, this is written as though from God’s perspective. —- “I AM giving you a new perspective. See things from My view. My thoughts are greater than your thoughts. I know every living being intimately. Everything and everyone […]

Are You Avoiding a Book of the Bible?

Are you avoiding a book of the Bible that has bored or confused you in the past? Every time you open your Bible, is that book staring you in the face? Are you trying to ignore it? I believe God is saying that now is the time to tackle it! Don’t forget — God breathed all these words in the Bible with precision and purpose– and He can speak to you in that specific book like He can in no other. So let Him guide you into that book […]

You are Important in the Body of Christ

Oh, hey blog! It’s Sunday night and I am tired. My wonderful and loving husband is on a business conference until Thursday. I just finished pre-making the crock pot meals for this week and I’m feeling accomplished. And tired. I’ve been doing a 40 day sugar fast with Wendy Speake and about 5000 women on facebook! I started earlier than everyone else, and tomorrow will mark my 2 week date. Around Thursday I started feeling super tired (more than my usual tired-because-I-have-three-children-who-still-wake-up-at-night kind of […]

From My Mother’s Womb

“A Razor has never come upon my head, for I have been a Nazarite to God from my mother’s womb” (Judges 16:17). First order of business in my Mother Bible study — what’s a Nazarite? Having read this before, I know what it is, but for your sake, (and to glean what I can) I’m going to look it up. (From my oh-so-helpful Holman’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary) “Member of a class of individuals especially devoted to God. The Hebrew term means consecration, devotion, […]

Be Curious Seekers!

My husband Rick and I were reading about Gideon’s son Abimelech in Judges chapter 9 on Monday night. We came to the beginning of the next chapter, and this was the first verse: “After Abimelech there arose to save Israel Tola the son of Puah, son of Dodo, a man of Issachar, and he lived at Shamir in the hill country of Ephraim” (Judges 10:1). I thought, “Who cares? Why is this dude Tola even mentioned?” Then I thought of Chuck […]
