Blessed in Return

I have been doing a lot of praying lately, mostly praying for others. The grief of my world feels heavy right now. But it is so life-giving to lift our prayers and our cares to the Lord. It is a gift to others and a gift to ourselves to pray for those we love.   I just read this in my devotional Growing in Prayer by Mike Bickle:   “Intercession for others causes multiplied blessings to return back on the […]

He has given our prayers power.

I’m currently reading a 100 day devotional called, “Growing in Prayer,” by the founder of the International House of Prayer, Mike Bickle. This book has been absolutely fantastic in encouraging me to pray, daily. I committed to writing 2 pages of prayers every day this month in my prayer journal. There are times when I have not felt like doing it. But I have a difficult time staying in prayer when I am just thinking or even praying aloud, and when I […]

Where are You Running?

This is what I hear the Lord saying today: Hide in my heart. There is space in here for you. I am your safest space, the place you can hide from danger, from evil, from chaos. I will shield you from the storm and I am your strong tower.  Where your treasure is, your heart will be also. You will soon see where your idols are. Come to Me, repent and ask Me to remove your desire for those things […]

God Speaking During COVID-19

I want to keep track of the encouraging words I’m receiving from God, through His word and through other people, as well as what I’m hearing from Him in the Spirit during this strange time in my life. So I’m going to be recording here. Sometimes my thoughts will be haphazard, but I hope it will be a comfort to you too as we go through this. — March 19 Today I was encouraged by a meme reminding me how […]

You are God-sufficient

I just came across this message I received from the Lord in January 2017. Thought maybe it would bless some of you  “Be a source of love. Let love flow through you from Me and out to others. Let Me be your strength, you were designed to need Me. You were designed to rely on Me. You are not self-sufficient, you are God- sufficient. I will make the way, not you. Trust Me. Lean on Me and I will make […]

He is so gracious toward us.

I am currently writing out the book of Revelation, and the things I’m noticing are amazing and so encouraging! Here’s something God revealed tonight while I copied Revelation chapter 3 about the church of Laodicea. “I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, […]

Love Anyway

(Originally written down in my journal on 7/29/19) I’ve been thinking about love. It feels like it’s going to take a lot of energy to write this out. But I think it’s important. Sometimes love means allowing something that makes you uncomfortable. Choosing to love can make you vulnerable. But over time it’s little bits of love that add up together as proof of great love, God’s love. Do you choose to put yourself at a disadvantage and put others […]

What is the Measure of a Man?

What is the measure of a man? You can measure him in kindness, in good deeds. In prayers piling up in golden incense bowls before the Lord. The Lord measured King Belshazzar in the book of Daniel, and he was found “wanting”. He was lacking before the Lord. I often measure myself by the standards of other people. I measure myself against impossible standards that I imagine others are judging me by. But the only one whose opinion really matters […]

Five Minute Friday: Search

This is a link up post with fiveminutefriday.com where bloggers write for five minutes on a topic with no editing. Today’s topic is “search.” I set my timer for five minutes and ta-da. —————————— “Search” ‘You will find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.’ It’s hard to keep searching sometimes. It’s easier just to let it go, let the desire to know God or know truth or get to know His word, to let it drift […]

God Will Carry You

This is a message God has given me different times. He gave it to me again today! [this is written from God’s perspective] I Am holding you in My hand. Don’t be afraid. It’s not what you think. John 10:28 – “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.“ Isaiah 49:16 “Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before Me.“ […]
