Learning To Walk The Lord’s Way

So what would the toddler say to mom and dad if he/she could after falling over and over again while trying to walk? “It sure feels good to have your comfort near and your loving kisses as you reach out to help me back up.” How does it make the parent feel? Absolutely wonderful because they love their little one and see the progress and are there to encourage. So, in light of all of this, how does our Heavenly Father feel when He reaches down to help us back up or carry us for a bit? We have to get this. He’s not upset. It is His pleasure to see us attempt the impossible and to keep on going. It is only the enemy that brings accusations. We have to close our ears to his voice and feel the love of Holy Spirit. He always comes to comfort us… Lift up your heads. We have a Father who cares for us MORE than we can ever imagine or comprehend. Maybe we can all walk together… We will cross the finish line and fulfill our destiny… Yeah! LEARNING TO WALK THE LORD’S WAY! Read the rest of this entry »

Feeling Insignificant, Not

Feeling insignificant? It’s just a feeling generally based on circumstances. Who knows what is written about you in your scroll in heaven? Psalm 139:16 “all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” Question is, “Do you really want to know or is it easier not knowing rather than being held accountable to do what it takes to cross the finish line of victory for your life?” In the Lord’s Kingdom, no one is insignificant. Don’t you know that the one door in front of you might open to let hundreds of souls into a glorious place in the Lord they would not otherwise have seen? Push a little harder! Press in a bit more! You are not alone. Self-pity would have you believe otherwise. Who you gonna listen to? Be encouraged my friends… Take my hand and let’s go together…

Peace Like A River

In this hectic world, it’s hard to find peace. When I look at most people’s faces, I see a lot of stress. So much to do and not enough time to do it. How does one find peace in our generation? Everywhere we look, there is calamity, noise, and seemingly so many things that need to be done. PEACE LIKE A RIVER! Read the rest of this entry »

DWFD – Do What Father’s Doing

I awakened one morning with this caption in my thoughts. I added a couple of my photos and designed the print. DWFD – Do What Father’s Doing. It is taken from the scriptures John 5:19 & Galatians 4:6. Jesus only did what He saw His Father doing. As His children, His sons and daughters, we have the same privilege and directive. This challenge is a Higher Calling than simply questioning “What Would Jesus Do?” because you have to have a relationship with Him in order to see and then His grace to accomplish it.

Enemy Schemes

Haman was an evil man to be sure, but there are Haman’s in our world too. They are building gallows to bring down the Lord’s people even though some might even think they are helping the Lord. Warning: Don’t walk in and participate in Haman’s camp, it’s end is death. The very schemes they use will be used on them instead. Justice will come swiftly. (Esther 7) – ENEMY SCHEMES!

Changing Course

Awakened this morning and heard the words, “Changing Course” and wondered what it meant. We have been going through a time of transition anyway in our lives, so we knew there was a change of course coming, but what did this mean today. We’ve recently moved and have been throwing out some of the old things to prepare for the new, so just what did He mean. CHANGING COURSE! Read the rest of this entry »
