When You Need to Let Go

When You Need to Let Go

The day began dreary, wet from rain and intense with wind. I wondered if God was weeping with me as I realized the miracle I had been waiting on—expecting with my whole heart—would not come that day. At least, that’s what I was believing. There was no sign of a miracle in the making.

When Your Christmas Miracle Is Just Out Of Reach

When Your Christmas Miracle Is Just Out Of Reach

There are some dreams or answers to prayer we can see, smell, and taste, but it seems just out of our reach. We know it is right there. If only, we could jussst grip it, we could pull it off the shelf and use it. Are you in that spot too? I don’t care how tall you are, there’s always something just out of your reach. I’ve been asking God for a miracle to a situation in my life. I can see a small light at the end of the tunnel, and it’s not a train. But it’s not coming fast enough for me. I don’t even know if God intends for the miracle to be on my timeline or not. All I can do is reach for Jesus and believe He is going to heal this situation.

Peace On Earth, Goodwill To Men ~ A Prayer

Peace On Earth, Goodwill To Men ~ A Prayer

Bells are ringing children singing peace on earth goodwill to men... We ask You Lord today, to come. Come be with us. As Your name, Emmanuel — God with us — promises. We ask You to remove our fear. Our fear of not being enough. Not having enough. Not doing enough. Remove from our hearts the stone that is forming, hardening us to the wonder of the season. Help us to remember what this is really all about. You. Jesus. Bring us the peace of goodwill toward men we long for Lord. We know that ultimately, this peace will not become reality until the day You come in glory and splendor to overcome the Evil One. But, You promise to give us a peace that passes all understanding and we surely could use that peace right now.

The Blessing of Belief

The Blessing of Belief

There comes a day when you just have to believe. You just have to trust. No matter what anyone else tells you, no matter what your own heart and mind tell you, you have to decide to walk by faith and not by sight. So when the road is dark and all you can do is 5 miles an hour around the hair-pin turns, your hands trembling in fear, maybe it’s time to just trust God will get you safely to that destination. Whatever it is. He will lead you, because He has promised to.

Resting In Thanksgiving

Resting In Thanksgiving

I love Thanksgiving week. It’s so relaxing. Filled with family and friends and food. What could be better? Here in a few short days, shoppers will be coming out in droves. The usual sereneness of the mall and the stores will be gone and will drive us all a little nuts. But for this week. This week we can sit and relax. Spend time with the Lord and tell Him all the things we are thankful for.

YES HE CAN (WILL)! YES I CAN!

YES HE CAN (WILL)! YES I CAN!

Do you remember the children’s song, Going on a Bear Hunt? In this silly song, the children chant along as they go hunting a bear because “I’m not scared!”. Along the way they encounter things like tall, wavy grass, a mushroom patch, a wide river, and finally a dark cave. In each situation the child sings, “Can’t go over it! Can’t go under it! Can’t go around it! Gotta go through it!” And isn’t that what much of life is like? We encounter terrors along our journey and we try every which way to manage the situation, make it go away, or conquer it but in the end we realize, we have to go through it. And then, we think, “There’s no way I can do this.” Then the more we think how much we cannot do something, the more we believe it. Until one day, we are just stuck right in that rut. That’s where Philippians 4:13 comes in.

Come and Rest

Come and Rest

I traveled down the mountain toward home with a heavy heart. The heaviness not borne of my own troubles, but of someone else. And while I have no idea what her burdens were (or may still be), I felt the overwhelming need to pray for her. Although the verses seemed to be for her, they comforted me as well. I knew my good, good Shepherd was speaking to me. I pray you hear Him speaking to you, too, through these, His words. And you find rest for your soul as well.
