Listening to the Lord…

I set about listening for ten minutes tonight. 8:43-8:53pm. I saw a sea of candles in my mind’s eye. The wind moves the flames in harmony. It was a beautiful vision. The Bible says that Holy Spirit moves us where He wills (see John 3:8). I pray that we, the Church, will move in harmony as one in Jesus Christ. I want to see us being in harmony even with those we’ve never met and those we have yet to […]

He Will Transform Me

Last week, I was with my brothers, their respective wives/fiances/girlfriends, and my parents. Two out of four of us siblings live in different states so it’s not often that we are all together. We went out to dinner to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday. As I looked around the table, I observed with humor and awe that all of us are similar. We act like our parents! Growing up together we learned mannerisms, quirks, silly smiles, facial expressions, how to […]

Faith Comes By Hearing…

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. -Romans 10:17  I recently read “Celebration of Discipline,” by Richard J. Foster, about different practices of Christianity and growing in your relationship with Christ. One chapter was about study, which is pretty much my favorite Christian “discipline.” It’s no surprise that I love studying and discovering truth in the Word and how it all works together. Foster make some fascinating points worth sharing: “Study involves four steps. The […]

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 […]
