That New Thing

Isaiah 43:19 (AMP) “Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.” Has a scripture ever jumped off the page at you before or in this case the glowing…

My Soul Waits…

Psalm 62:1-2 (AMP) For God alone my soul waits in silence; from Him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my defense and my strong tower; I will not be shaken or disheartened. My husband went on a date last night. In fact, over the last couple months, it seems like there are more and more…

Life is Good

I Thessalonians 5:16-19 (NIV) Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit. “Life is good.” The first words scribbled in my journal this cold January morning. Who am I telling? Me, I guess. Sometimes in the chaos and craziness of life…

Stuck in the Middle

Proverbs 13:12 (NKJV) Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life. Life with Jesus is a process. It is a perpetual learning cycle of trust and obey met with experiencing God’s Goodness and Favor as a regular occurrence. Such a life has nothing to do with me changing His Mind…

Fruitless Faith

Luke 17:5-9 (TLB) One day the apostles said to the Lord, “We need more faith; tell us how to get it.” “If your faith were only the size of a mustard seed,” Jesus answered, “it would be large enough to uproot that mulberry tree over there and send it hurtling into the sea! Your command would bring…

Lifter of My Head

Psalm 3 (NIV) Lord, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me! Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.” But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain. I lie down and…

New Year – New Thing

. Isaiah 43:1-2 (NKJV) But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, and He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire,…

If Only We Believed…

Psalm 27:13 (NKJV) I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Stumbling across this passage the other day, I could feel the hot tears behind my eyes forcing their way down my face. This is my testimony. I would have lost…

Time To Pack

Matthew 11:30 (NKJV) “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Christmas is now over. The torn open boxes and piles of paper all thrown away. Decorations all put away and a brand new year in just a few days. I love the coming of a new year. The turn of a historical page and…

Do Not Be Afraid

Psalm 56:3-4 (NKJV) Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. In God (I will praise His word), in God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me? Do not be afraid. A variation of this statement is used in scripture more than 300 times. God doesn’t…
