Finding Our Voice…

Amanda (and Anna), Anna, great post. Scripture yields so much insight into the power of words, and teaches us to handle words like the power-tools that they are. Amanda, you are so right about words – words hurt. I know for many people ‘sticks and stones’ is definitely not true. As a recovered anorexic and…

Eating Disorders, Body Image, and Jesus

I received an immediate response today to the post Words Hurt or Heal…… I wanted to share her comment (that was public) as a post and would love to invite Cathy Boyle to respond and highlight her ministry.  I will send this to her.  I think we need to hang out here for a while….

Words Hurt or Heal – What will you choose today?

I can’t speak enough about words of encouragement. There is a spiritual gifts test you can take and one of the gifts one can have is exhortation.  When taking that test, I’ve always wondered why someone would not score at least marginally on this category.  My husband, who is a wonderful, loving person, honestly shared…

Please be sure…

It’s so awesome to read other’s thoughts and testimony.  Please make sure you go back to Desperado and Victory In Jesus and scroll down to read the comments of others cheering us on in the faith. I love full gospel songs.  Below is a youtube video/song of Victory in Jesus!  Imagine yourself in church worshipping…

VICTORY

Victory:  Defined 1. Defeat of an enemy or opponent. 2. Success in a struggle against difficulties or an obstacle. 3. The state of having triumphed. Our family was nestled in bed on the pull out couch and other pieces of furniture downstairs (Yes all five of us) when I received a text from my sweet…

Desperado – The song…

I hesitated to post the song because it’s not a Christian song.  I hope you can hear Jesus within the song.  I’ve always found that listening to Christian songs lift us and give us meaning.  I think that is why when I hear pop songs or remember songs from my past I try to put…

Believe! KNOW! Freedom!

Wonderful Holy Spirit moments happened today in response to discovering “one word” that heals for others.  A friend of mine text me and said that God truly spoke to hear heart after reading the post and for her the word was “FREEDOM”.  We had a text discussion on believing and within the believing finding freedom…

BELIEVE!

Triggers. You are in a room and you hear a song or a word spoken, a smell catches your senses, a place…Triggers.  Most of our triggers are pleasant ones.  We smell apple pie and we think of fall.  I have this one school at a certain hallway and door that smells like my old elementary…

GOOD MORNING LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE!

He’s the Lily of the Valley – Charles Fry, 1881

A friend of mine, Sandy, reminded me of Charles Fry, 1881, original hymn of He’s the Lily of the Valley: The version Karen sent to me and I posted seemed to be a rendition  of the original hymn!  Enjoy!  I love old hymns.  I like to think of someone with an oil lamp hovered over…

Reader’s Response To Mirror, Mirror On The Wall

Follow this wonderful time line of God Moments with Me: (all within 24 hours!) Karen writes to me and says – “He is the fairest of them all!” (meaning Jesus) which reminds us of a song, and she sends the lyrics and highlights the last verse – AMAZING!  I’ve found a friend in Jesus, He’s…
