Even Now

This account of GOD’S timing and what seemed like a delay is on my heart tonight. There was an unexplainable delay, but in the end, the miracle arrived. “So the two sisters sent a message to Jesus telling him, “Lord, your dear friend is very sick.” (John 11:3 NLT) They knew Jesus, they loved Jesus,…

A Fox in the Henhouse

Today is my day off from my job outside the home, which means I have a million things to do at home. So, instead of sleeping in, I got up early to get started and like many other weary mommas, I sat right down with a cup of coffee and began to have my devotion…

A Whisper in Our Ears

Today I am determined to be quiet in my spirit and listen for a whisper. It won’t be easy, but I am determined. Did you ever notice how loud life can get? How noisy and demanding every day life can be? Schedules, appointments, decisions, deadlines, conflicts… Even when everything is going smoothly, it’s going at…

Parenting Goals

These are a few things that are top priorities in my parenting goals. #1 – I want to teach my children to pray. So many people, even those who claim to be Christians, simply fail to pray. It should be our first recourse not our last resort. I want my children to feel comfortable enough…

Dangers of Criticism

Lots on my heart this morning and I’ve been contemplating how very easy it is to make judgement calls on other lives while sitting and doing nothing ourselves. Here is what I mean. HUSH. Please just hush. Do not be so bold as to express your opinion on matters that you have no first hand…

Understand

“Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.” Luke 24:45 NIV That single verse has been spoken in prayer many times from my lips. ‘Open our minds so that we can understand’. This is from the passage in Luke that describes the events that occurred on the very first Emmaus Walk. It…

This Love – Such Glorious Love

I know I must write about the glorious love that led to this day, this day in between. Jesus has been crucified and has not yet risen from His grave. And yet, I find myself at a loss for adequate words to describe what I am feeling.  As I contemplate the evidence of such great…

Abandoning Your Comfort Zone

Recently, I have stepped out of my comfort zone by committing to new responsibilities which require learning new skills and doing things I have never or not done in a long, long while. And, I’ve been struggling. I’ve been anxious, apprehensive, and honestly, worried that I will experience an epic fail. I like to know…

Someone’s Knocking at the Door

About that time… Have you been there before? Are you there now? When about that time, things start changing suddenly and you re-act rather than act? Who I really want to tell you about is Rhoda. She is found later in this same passage. But, before you can fully appreciate what she did and why…

Provoked to Love

Today is Valentine’s Day and “love” is in the air. This morning as I read my personal devotions I studied the scriptures that spoke of love. There were many! So much truth and wisdom and admonition concerning love! I enjoy fiber art and being able to knit and crochet. I am fascinated by the weaving…
