Monday Morning Musings: A Perspective of Peace

Perspective: A particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view. Peace: Freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility. Perspective of peace: A particular attitude or way of regarding circumstances that frees us from disturbance and promotes quiet and tranquility in our souls. (Cindy’s suggested definition. 🙂 ) I write about perspective a lot. I write about … More Monday Morning Musings: A Perspective of Peace

Personal Best

I wrote this a few years ago, but I’ve been thinking again lately about how differently we’re all wired. Although God’s love for each of us is the same, that’s pretty much where the similarity ends. I will never be able to achieve anyone else’s “personal best”–or for  that matter meet anyone else’s expectation of … More Personal Best

Focusing on Addition

I just had a bit of an epiphany. I have often said that I struggle with MANY things–but my relationship with God is never one of them. I know He loves me. I know He is with me. I know He is for me. Regardless of my life circumstances. Period. I also know that is not the reality of … More Focusing on Addition

Choose Your Battle

No, that’s not a typo. I didn’t mean to say choose your battles. Choose your battle. Choose your battle carefully. Choose your battle wisely. Because the battle isn’t  … Against ungodly governments or legislation Against corrupt leaders and officials Or even against bullies, murderers, and terrorists The battle isn’t … Against that person with whom … More Choose Your Battle

Monday Morning Musings: Wretch or Wonder?

A holy hush settled over the entire room. The soft and tender tones of women singing out their sincere love and longing for Jesus filled the atmosphere. It was a taste–just a tiny taste–of heaven on earth. Then it happened. (Oh why does it always happen?) “If you’re struggling with SIN don’t let anything keep you from Jesus. … More Monday Morning Musings: Wretch or Wonder?

Monday Morning Musings: Letting Go of Pain

On this week’s podcast “Letting Go of Pain” I share a testimony from my own experience of letting go. I had previously written about this particular story and it was published in an anthology book called God Allows U-Turns back in 2006. Since I’ve never published it here, rather than rewriting it slightly differently, I’m … More Monday Morning Musings: Letting Go of Pain

My Convoluted and Complicated Thoughts on Corporate Prayer

I think I came out of the womb praying. I can’t remember a time I didn’t talk to God all day long. In fact, I’ve often said praying is like breathing to me. I still say that … because it still is. Prayer is a priceless and precious means of communion and communication with God. … More My Convoluted and Complicated Thoughts on Corporate Prayer

Monday Morning Musings: Life IN Transition

“Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength,till each appears before God in Zion.” -Psalm 84:5-7 Transition.  Not many people love the word. Because not … More Monday Morning Musings: Life IN Transition

Monday Morning Musings: The Road That Leads Back to Praise

With her two daughters-in-law she left the place where she had been living and set out on the road that would take them back to the land of Judah. – Ruth 1:7 Things had not gone well for Naomi. There was famine in her hometown of Bethlehem. Then, after leaving for Moab with her husband … More Monday Morning Musings: The Road That Leads Back to Praise

Happy Endings

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what it means to be authentically me-especially as it relates to what God has called me to in terms of the message(s) He has given me to communicate. As I was pondering these things, I remembered this post I wrote a few years ago. I think I needed … More Happy Endings

Perfect Steps

We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps. – Proverbs 16:9 NLT Always Faithfully Relentlessly Perfectly He determines our steps. He perfectly determines our steps in His intricately, amazingly, precisely perfect timing. Plan away–but rest in the grace of His perfectly timed and perfectly ordained leadership. Because He never fails.

Pieces of My Heart

So I worked on this little project before Christmas and I sort of forgot to tell anyone about it. Basically, I’ve published another book called Pieces of My Heart. It was fairly easy to put together because I didn’t really write anything new–it is a (somewhat) random compilation of stuff I’d previously written. I like … More Pieces of My Heart
