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. He has–over and over again. … More Just Musing

Monday Morning Musings: Conformed to His Image

“For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son.” –Romans 8:29 I love Romans 8:28. I mean, I really love Romans 8:28.

Excitement filled the air. At long last it was time. It was my time. It was time to present an offering to the King. It was time to place the fruit of my labor–my very best efforts–before him. The King himself had commissioned this gift. It was the very best I had to offer. I worked … More Imperfect!

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


Someday I will have something profound to say.  Someday I will have a great story, or great revelation, or something incredibly encouraging to share.  Someday.  Maybe.  Someday. But  today is not that day. Today is not someday.  Today is, well, today. So I’m not going to try to be profound. I don’t have a really great … More Today

Love Never Fails

“Lord, I’m such a failure!”  I had already spent way too long listing everything that was wrong with me and everything that was wrong in my life,  when I tearfully blurted out the words. I wasn’t expecting a response from Jesus, but I got one anyway. Really, in whose eyes? I was a bit startled.  I stammered a reply, … More Love Never Fails

The Strive Free Zone

It has been quite a week.  Sometimes the reality of living in a restless, fallen world is like that.  Unexpected things have happened that have broken my heart.  Good things that were expected didn’t materialize.  Delays and disappointments have been the norm along with a variety of other perplexing circumstances popping up at exactly the wrong time.  It’s been one of those … More The Strive Free Zone

This is My Story

I had a great day yesterday and my quick Facebook update last evening reflected that fact.  This is what I posted:  “Been completely undone most of the afternoon and I’m so glad.  Jesus is so ridiculously good it is embarrassing.” When I got home last night, there was a comment on the post:  “Really?  I … More This is My Story
