Thank You

My brain is on spin cycle. The Holy Spirit has been pouring in so much; doing so much. In my mind, there are a zillion sound bites clamoring for airplay. They are competing with half a dozen opening lines of posts that are mentally “in process.” Floating in between it all–mental snapshots of so many amazing and miraculous … More Thank You

A Christmas Prayer

  Dear Father,   Thank You for the priceless gift of Your Son. This Christmas I pray that the miracle of the Incarnation—that God became flesh and dwelt among us—will be birthed anew in my heart. Open my eyes to see with fresh insight.  Let me come to You with the faith and trust of a … More A Christmas Prayer

What I (Really) Need

Often what we think is broken, isn’t what is broken.  And often what we think will bring healing, isn’t what brings healing.  In those times, I am so grateful for a loving Father who knows me so much better than I know myself. I was … More You Know Me

The Open Door

After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here …”  –Revelation 4:1  There is a door standing open in heaven. “Come up here!”  The invitation has been issued.  The way has been made.  … More The Open Door

Longing for Glory

Been thinking a lot about glory.  Been pondering and praying, too.  Been longing.  Been hearing a lot of messages that have stirred my soul and made my heart ache, even more, for glory.  The messages are great.  Praying and pondering is great.  But oh to taste. I have tasted– a little–but there’s more.  There is so, so much more.  I want it.  I … More Longing for Glory
