What a beautiful day for the adventure to begin. What’s in today? What’s around the corner? See beyond the dismal and ordinary to that which Father is wanting us to discover!

Pieces Of The Puzzle

I awakened at 4:00 o’clock this morning from a horrible dream. I saw someone get on a motorcycle in frustration and ride at a very high speed across a valley and then up a mountain or hill. As they got to the top I heard agonizing screams as they went straight over the cliff. Then I saw the motorcycle and the person fall down the cliff to their death. Life over! Gone in just a heartbeat! A choice was made, evidently out of frustration and it was carried out quickly. Then I awakened later and saw a vision. PIECES OF THE PUZZLE! Read the rest of this entry »

Soften My Heart

Soften my heart, O Lord, make it ever true. This is my cry and this is my song. If you’re like me, sometimes we can get to a place where we turn on the cruise control. Everything seems to be going great and then we catch a glimpse of our heart. A situation arises and we don’t like the way we handled it. It wasn’t a good thing. What happened? It was a hardened heart. How could this be? Easy, it was one of those things from a while back and now it is simply time to deal with it. Soften My Heart! Read the rest of this entry »

CROSSROADS song by Joseph James

Every once in a while we come to a crossroads in our lives where choices have to be made. Which choice is the best? Which one do we choose though? Do we go the easy way or do we make the difficult decision? As I was writing this song, the Lord gave me an incredible revelation in the midst of it. We’ve been living that way ever since as it has changed our perception of the storms that come our way. A short mp3 music clip is below the lyrics. Crossroads… Read the rest of this entry »

Fear Driven Or Love Led

Do we react to most things we see and make choices based on the fear that touches our heart? Like the bombs that went off at the Boston Marathon yesterday, how does it change our life? It is absolutely necessary to look at the situation and try to determine what changes we need to make, if any, but the choice that comes next is of utmost importance as it will either imprison us in a smaller place or set us free to rise above it. FEAR DRIVEN OR LOVE LED… Read the rest of this entry »

Wisdom vs Knowledge

In the book of Genesis, there were two trees in the garden. One was the tree of life and the other, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It’s message is simple and yet profound. One brings life and the other death. WISDOM VS KNOWLEDGE… Read the rest of this entry »

Times Of Transition

What do we do during times of transition? You know, those times of uncertainty. We know we have finished a segment or season in our life, but we don’t quite know what’s coming next. It’s a time of transition and the choices we make in the midst of it will determine our next destination, whether it is a place of blessing or something other. Some transitions are longer than others. Some are more treacherous. Sometimes we even feel like giving up. What will we do? TIMES OF TRANSITION! Read the rest of this entry »

Destiny Awaits Art Print

Destiny Awaits – Art Print by Joseph James (Hartmann) – Finally, after several years of creating some art prints for some of my poems, we now have them available in 12×18 inch prints. Each print is printed on high quality metallic paper called Ice Gold Metallic with an 80# text weight. It is stunning and brilliant as the light touches the metal flakes and colors and makes them sparkle. This print is titled, “Destiny Awaits.” What a wonderful way to look at our future? If we haven’t liked the past, we simply make new and different choices and it is created. Of course, there are some choices we have already made that might have set us on a certain course, but that can be subject to change. What kind of future do we want? It’s not too late to find out from the Lord what His purpose and destiny is for our life. Everything can change and become brand new. Think about it. What would we like to see? Destiny Awaits
