Magnify

“Panic and anxiety NEVER advance the kingdom of God – even if attached to prayer. Prayers of faith are what move heaven and earth. When you panic it is because you are seeing too much of the enemy and not enough of God. Be careful what you focus on. Be strategic in what/who you magnify.” … More Magnify

Just Musing

Just musing this morning. No official “Monday Morning Musings.” No podcast. No series. No particular format or pre-planned content. Just my heart – reflecting – pondering – considering – a variety of things. Things like: His great faithfulness. Years ago, Jesus told me He didn’t mind proving His faithfulness to me.

The Voyage

This song has been messing me up. Like really messing me up. But that’s a good thing. In fact, I’m seeing a lot of good things lately.  Even though a lot of those good things have initially been disguised as challenges.

Monday Morning Musings: Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure.” –Psalm 122:6 It wasn’t intended as a suggestion. But it’s also not an obligation. It’s an invitation. The idea of praying for Jerusalem–praying for Israel–it’s not a duty, its a privilege for those who love Jesus. Because if you love someone, you want to … More Monday Morning Musings: Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

Time is My Ally

Time.  Seems there is never enough of it.  I find myself running late far too often.  On any given day I feel like I’m behind on dozens of things. That feeling often carries over from a task level to a heart level.  Often I feel like I’m behind in life. I feel like there are so … More Time is My Ally

Taking a Walk

I’ve been attempting to write “something” every week so I’m rushing to get a few thoughts down before this weekend completely slips away.  It’s been a busy week and a lot has happened.  There is no way I can do justice to all that God has been doing and showing me recently in the few brief moments I have … More Taking a Walk
