After the Locusts Have Eaten

It’s a fact, a sad fact, that all of us have times of scarcity and famine. But the flip side of these times speak of R-E-S-T-O-R-A-T-I-O-N! God says we can expect restoration, and that’s exciting. There’s one word that God has spoken over and over to me, and that is focus. Oh yes my friend, God brings both the bad and good.

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 here?”

Some Thoughts ~

“You can never learn that Christ is all you need, until Christ is all you have.”~Corrie ten Boom.

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.

To Live is Christ and To Die is Gain

Oh my friends, there has been much death in my life. I’m not sharing this so you can feel pity and sorrow towards me, but I have to be transparent. I have to be real. I have been stripped of so much that I held dear. I

The Christian Wilderness

The Christian Wilderness. How shall I start to explain this? The best way I can describe it is that you are confronted with an anti-you barrier, and in the eyes of the world you look like a loser. Limitation after limitation have been part of your life now for years, or you’ve had to endure a lifetime of restriction. What I mean

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 may think

Awesome Sermon – Red Is Still Tough!

I want to share this sermon with you.  Today I watched it again...  Every true believer who will be effectively used by God will be put through a process. This process is God’s curriculum on betrayal, false accusations, and broken promises. This message peeks into the...

He is Coming!

This wonderful vision is directly from my friend, Susan Norman... He is coming. He is. And what will those who are still alive on earth witness? I think I have a pretty good idea, and it might not be what you expect. The miracle of Michael didn't stop on Christmas...

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 being a...

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 under...

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...

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 taught...

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:...

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 area......

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...

Encourage – My Story

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. (Romans 12:15) There is a unique culture, a new medium that someone at some time for some reason named the ‘internet’. It is a new way of communicating; a place where you have a voice and your audience is the...

Sovereignty In Raindrops…

As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, "Let's cross to the other side of the lake."  Mark 4:35   Today I want to share with you something I read about the above verse that really sticks with me.  Jesus told His disciples to get into their boat and cross to...

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...

"Pity Plus Action"

Hath God Said?

 “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.  And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”  Genesis 3:1   The way it usually works with Satan is that he tries to make...

Knowing Gods Deep Secrets

A while ago I heard a statement that really made me think.  In fact, it helped me in my prayer life... You ask God about something, and when He answers you question whether or not it was Him.  Why don’t you believe Him?  Jesus tells us that the Holy Spirit will come...

Before and After My Encounter With Christ…

My internet connection was down all day.  It gave me a chance to make some new graphics, which I'm still working on - so check my "free graphic" page this weekend.  I also made this new photo, which I'm pretty excited about!  I think it really speaks volumes of the...

Please “get it!” It’s yours for the taking.

Its Truths Never Change

“When I discovered your words, I devoured them. They are my joy and my heart's delight, for I bear your name, O LORD God of Heaven's Armies.”  Jeremiah 15:16   How true these words are to me!  Nothing has ever taken hold of me like Jesus Christ (You have enclosed me...
