Every Yes Matters

When it comes to God, no really isn’t in my vocabulary. Besides pretty much giving Him a blanket yes before I know the question, there have been many very specific yeses, in regard to very specific invitations. Usually, the invitation seemed weighty and came with a specific assignment. Usually, there were many confirming words, much … More Every Yes Matters

A Ready Writer?

“My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.’’  -Psalm 45:1 NKJV I have this sort of love-hate relationship with words. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not one of those people with bazillions of gifts. Pretty much just words. Yep, … More A Ready Writer?

Take Courage

This past week, my heart wasn’t feeling very brave. My faith didn’t seem particularly steadfast. And, honestly, my soul was down and discouraged. But sometimes you just gotta tell your soul what to do. So I did. In fact, that’s what I’ve had to do a lot in recent months. I’ve had to tell my soul exactly what it will and … More Take Courage

From His Heart to Yours: May 25, 2016

If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself. —2 Timothy 2:13 Have I ever failed you, beloved? When you look at your circumstances with natural eyes, you feel as though your faith is beginning to drift, but I will come through for you whether you remain strong and steadfast or whether you waiver. I cannot deny Myself—and … More From His Heart to Yours: May 25, 2016

“One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers—Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew—throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. Jesus called out to them, ‘Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!’ And they left their … More Simply Follow

To Be Continued . . .

Last week the Holy Spirit hijacked my podcast. I felt at the time that it might mean a change for more than just that one week but I really wasn’t sure. I had only started posting weekly podcasts–including resuming the Monday Morning Musings devotionals–ten weeks ago, so switching things up this early in the process … More To Be Continued . . .

A Faithful Blogger?

This is a different kind of post for me. I don’t usually blog about blogging, but I’m processing through some things and seeking input. I have a button on my blog that says “I’m a Faithful Blogger.” But am I? The button is from a site for Christian bloggers. I saw it on another blog so I checked … More A Faithful Blogger?

Finding My Voice

“Are you sure, Lord? I mean, are you really sure?” Yes, love, I’m sure. This is one of the very things I had in my heart when I created you. “But seriously, who even cares?  Honestly, tons of people are able to share the same kinds of things I share–and most of them do it … More Finding My Voice

Go Now and Write

Apparently I am quite dense at times. I so long to make God’s heart happy and I never, ever, want to intentionally resist him. My heart’s cry is to remain teachable and open to the workings and desires of the Holy Spirit – always. But the truth is there are times I just don’t get … More Go Now and Write
