After the Locusts Have Eaten

“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten–the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm – my great army that I sent among you.”  Joel 2: 25   It’s a fact, a sad fact, that all of us have times of scarcity...

Some Thoughts ~

“You can never learn that Christ is all you need, until Christ is all you have.”~Corrie ten Boom. How this resonates with me in my every waking moment.  It wasn’t until suffering plopped itself down in the middle of my living room and set up camp for the long haul,...

To Live is Christ and To Die is Gain

  “Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope. My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life. ” Psalm 119:49-50 These are words I recite back to the Lord everyday. Flashbacks of the vision I saw 12 years ago...

Did the Lord Ever Speak to Me at All?

“Did the Lord ever speak to me at all?  If so, why does He allow the innocent to suffer?  Why was I sent to this filthy prison while that lewd woman (Potiphar’s wife) lives in the lap of luxury?  Could not an omnipotent God deliver me?  Why then does He leave me...

The Christian Wilderness

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”  Isaiah 55: 9   The Christian Wilderness.  How shall I start to explain this?  The best way I can describe it is that you are confronted with...

Envy – The Suffering Righteous and the Successful Sinner

Envy.  Sometimes it’s hard not to be envious… especially when it seems like you’re stuck sitting on the sidelines watching everyone else’s life progressing… and you are just existing day after day, month after month, and monotonous year after year.  You...

The Word of God Will Try You…

Dear friend, if God gifts you, or if he graces you – then He intends to try you.  Being “tried by the Word” is something that has lately been mulling over in my mind.  So when I received a devotional that spoke about this, I knew I should write about it here. ...

A Blessing in the Storm...

AllThreeBooks_200 widthAlthough Muscular Dystrophy was the catalyst helping me to see my need for God, this story is not just about physical suffering; It’s for precious souls who are weary… souls who simply feel beaten down by life.

Carter Conlon – Why do Preachers Lie?

Another great sermon I want to share with you.  There are so many wolves out there, especially in these last days.  We all need to have discernment from God and need to really know who we are listening to for TRUTH…  ... read more

Stop Assuming, Don’t Be Like Job’s Buddies

I’m not even sure how to begin this post, but I need to get a message across to some well-meaning Christian brothers and sisters – that some things they assume will be helpful for others to hear, can sometimes cut like a knife…   Instead of the church... read more

God Has Not Forgotten You

God has not forgotten you!  Those are some of the sweetest words anyone who has been through severe drought and storm can hear.  Let’s really look at what God is saying to us in this verse of scripture as we pick it apart… “Blessed is the one who perseveres... read more

None of Us are Born Loving God’s Sovereignty

None of us are born loving God’s Sovereignty.  We are all born loving our own sovereignty!  God uses afflictions/suffering to heal both sinner and saint, and if we don’t take hold of and really understand that all of our steps are ordered from the Lord, we will become... read more

All I Need to Do is Worship

There I was again for the umpteenth time.  My flesh was screaming for the release of this disease!  Yes, for a brief moment my carnality was in a fierce battle with my spirit.  I lost my focus.  Self-pity was at the front door. But here’s the thing… God has... read more

What Do You Do When Hope is Gone?

Hope is a great thing, maybe the best of things. Hope is a key to the Christian life. But there’s a kind of hope I can really identify with because I know it so well… “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:... read more

Are You Dead Yet?

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.” Gal 2:20   Recent circumstances have inspired me to write about being crucified with Christ, and I believe the Holy Spirit wants to challenge all of us in this particular... read more

Speak to My People who are Yet to be My People

Something God had recently put on my heart is to “speak to My People who are yet to be My People.” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”  John 14:6 Jesus is the only way, my friends, and He’s looking... read more

A Change That Will Propel You

I shared this with a few friends and loved ones, but today I was prompted to put this out there in blog land (and wherever else it travels)… A few months ago I had a dream about things changing in my life AND I DID NOT LIKE THE CHANGES!  I woke up.  My eyes were... read more

About PERSEVERE

It’s my passion to write about my personal experiences to make you realize that God is in the intricate details of our lives. I am here to share things with you and to let you know there is hope… especially if you feel this IS NOT the place in life you envisioned for yourself! I’ve been there, and I know firsthand that it can be a dark and scary place. My friend, I know about a broken heart...
