In the Garden

I think of the many mornings that I've sat alone in the dark, right before (and after) sunrise. Alone in the physical sense, but not alone in the presence of God. This time of day feels spiritual to me—it is precious.

Pray It Forward

Father, help my eyes have the clarity to see the needs others have for prayer. Help me to pray on the spot and lift others up—not at a convenient time for me, but when the necessity is clearly in the moment.

Songs and Words From the Heart (Notes about My “Why”)

As a writer, and for all of us, I believe the evil one feels joy as he whispers lies in our ears. He adores seeing us go off track when we believe in his words"You aren't good enough, " or, "What gives you the right or say or write that?!" (and more...). Satan's onslaught is constant, but when we are armored up, his lies cannot penetrate us. We possess the freedom to use our voices as tools to help others when our faith and shields are in place!

Why Are You Silent, God?

Sometimes, when we feel we don't hear God (after all, we're only human), we are looking in the wrong place. Sometimes, we need to remember how he talks to us, and we need to listen and respond to the silence...he is there, we just aren't where we need to be.

Scrapping My Book Plans (For Now)

My desire in life is to not write what the itching ears want to hear. My goal is to write the truth. I do not want to steer anyone away from God's truth through either verbal or written word. My thoughts wrap around how easily words are miscontrued in today's society. 

Anniversary Reflections and Testimony

I was alone that day and it struck me—the conviction to drop to my knees, cry out to the Lord, and repent. I spilled every ounce of anguish and sin from my heart. I cried out for favor and forgiveness. As I repented, I felt his presence. Our relationship grew from that very moment.

Novel Coronavirus – Fear or Distraction?

I talked about how I know this as a succinct distraction from Satan. A deflection from the enemy. A deviation from a focus on God, instead it is an (idolization) on COVID-19.

Hearing the Voice of God

Author C.S. Lewis said, “God speaks to our hearts through His Holy Spirit in an audible but compelling way.” Yes, this is beautiful, thank you, Father, for loving us as your children!
