So Fresh From God

September has always reminded me of going back to school after the summer break. Everything was new and full of possibility. New clothes and new school supplies, new books, new teachers and maybe new goals. September in the Mid-west was still a little too warm to pretend it was Autumn yet. But still, I would […]

To Him Who Is Able

This verse keeps showing up lately. A morning devotional before a day worth of doubts set in, it was there. In a writing group workshop, someone quoted it from a different translation. Lately, God has been showing me, reminding me of how He alone rescues. The Lord gives tender treatment. The enemy of our soul […]

Gratitude

Sometimes, these post come from my morning quiet time, this morning I wrote this down: “If I am grateful and make a conscience effort to experience fully whatever I am grateful for by writing it down or even just sitting quietly within the moment while noticing how my human senses are being engaged, it is […]

When We Need Naps And Nourishment

I sat on the side of my bed and thought, “I should use this time to pray.” Because I am basically on a forced fast as my mouth heals from getting wisdom teeth removed. I’ve had a lot on my mind and my heart lately. Still sitting there I think, ” yes, I’ll light a […]

God Walking In The Cool Of The Evening

  We were always meant to work. That is why the desire is in each of us. We all want to create and tend, to build and multiply all that we have been given. Even the lazy among us has a desire for the results of work. There is just a disconnect in what they […]

The Unraveling Of The Day

Because sometimes I don’t know how my day needs to unravel until I begin my conversation with my heavenly Father. What will He reveal? Often it is the same thing from Thursday or the same things that were revealed on a random January afternoon. I am on this path of loving Him. And if I […]

Love Deeply

I’m sure we have all come across people that have knowledge and they even act upon that knowledge. They help the needy and the poor. They know the laws and can probably recite them. They are eager to die for Jesus. But a lot like Peter and the disciples after him proclaimed: Peter said to […]

The Uncontainable God

Uncontainable. The attribute I find the most comforting is this, His omnipresence. The human idea we can keep Him sequestered in only certain corners of life and the world, reminds me of how much at times I want to hide away or even go as far as denying Him existing right there beside me in […]
