What do we often do?
Last week I did some thinking about how busy Jesus was! While looking through all the busy, however, I also noticed this: But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer. (Luke 5:16) Round and round my pen went in an ever darkening circle around this verse in my Bible. This is what Luke said […]
You might be the only one. Just you.
This week Beth Moore publicized on Instagram that one of her staff members, Lici, was rushed to the hospital and had a blood clot removed from her brain. Lici is still not awake. It has been some days. Since I have attended Living Proof Live events featuring Beth Moore’s bible teaching and enjoyed worship led […]
A Pet Peeve Prayer
I have been having a strong emotional reaction lately to a particular sentence when it is said during prayer before a group event. Lord, let at least one person be touched. One person?!! The second I hear that I start praying in my head, “Lord, touch every single person that comes tonight. Let every single […]
How did a high priest in Satanism answer?
Early this year I received a daily devotional in my inbox HERE from Freedom in Christ Ministries. Neil Anderson, the founder of this incredible ministry, shared that one of the most dramatic deliverances he has observed happened in a man who was a high priest in the upper echelons of Satanism. Neil writes, Six months […]
Don’t read the Bible…
Pray the Bible, instead! My son and I are currently reading through Matthew. We just started at the beginning and won’t stop until we finish. Each day we grab the next few verses in chronological order, discuss what they mean, pray, and then he leaves for school and I leave for work. It’s casual and […]
Preparing for the New Year! Not only is 2020 a new year, it begins a new decade. Along with the typical commitments most of us make (like eating and exercise, spending more wisely, etc.), I wanted to do something extra special. Do you want to pray with me for 20/20 spiritual vision in the […]
Feeling Trapped? Feeling Small?
I feel trapped a lot. Are you feeling trapped too? Maybe it’s just my personality, or perhaps the lure of the world’s definition of success, but I have dreams of doing great things for God, my family, my neighborhood and the world. Yet most days I am found throwing in a load of laundry, wiping […]
Summer Snippet 3: What to pray for kids?
It’s summer and every household has experienced conflict already, maybe so fiercely that we have had a moment of panic and thought, “Oh, my Lord, the kids aren’t going to turn out! Help!” While my kids were still young, I learned from Beth Moore to pray the end goal: Lord, may my children grow up […]
Surviving Life’s Storms in 2019
So many of us rolled out of bed on the first day of 2019 and life was hard already. Our circumstances were the same as they were the day before. Nothing had changed while we slept. What now? How do we live through the storm? How do we keep from drowning in the waves washing over […]
A New Year’s Resolution Guaranteed to Work
Wrap up 2018. Whether you are a New Year’s resolution person or not, most of us think about what kind of year 2018 has been, even if for a few minutes. I usually spend 30 minutes tying up the current year before crossing the threshold into the next one. I write a list of the […]
