Your mind filled with the Spirit = life and peace

Romans 8:5-6 5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by…

Don’t play small! You are a child of God!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing…

Limited only by our affections…

I hesitate to share where I personally felt limited so that you can apply meaning to your “limits”.  At work, a coworker shared this verse with me after sharing with her a vulnerable spot in my life, Dear, dear Corinthians, I can’t tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious…

Prayer Walking–Momsinprayer.org

A friend invited me to prayer walk many schools in the area–Community High, Thomas Dale, Curtis, Wells, Harrowgate, Carver, and Beulah.  I was tied up with other commitments but it seemed that in the asking and the knowledge of her group prayer walking, I was there–you were there. We are bound together in His love…

A QUICK NOTE

For some reason videos do not play on my smart phone from the post.  If I’m on my computer, I can play the videos, but my smart phone is not so smart.  🙂  If that’s the case for you, I encourage you to go back to your computer and watch the video of That’s My…

We are not a mystery to Him! Do you know Him?

There is only One who fully knows you inside and out–better than you know yourself.  He adores you. I Corinthians 8:3 “But if anyone loves God, he is known by Him.” After meditating on this verse, I was reminded of the famous sermon from Dr. S.M. Lockridge many years ago.  He asked a good question:…

We are “wee”! He is STRONG!

Zacchaeus was a wee little man…. I’ve come to know a beautiful lady who treasures God’s Word more than anything.  Her heart is HUGE for the Lord.  She preached last Sunday at her church and blew me away with God’s Spirit living in her.  It was not Sarah on the pulpit but the very Spirit…

God, Ernest, and Antiques Roadshow

A man named Ernest Loganbill found himself on the Antiques Roadshow.  I was watching his story from an old show on Netflix.  My heart has been aching for the true knowledge of God’s Word.  God has given me so much confirmation in this area through Bible Studies, sermons, and friends.  His Word is truth!  I…

Desiring God

O God, you have declared me perfect in your eyes, you have always cared for me in my distress; now hear me as I call again. (Psalm 4: 1) Fill all who love you with your happiness…..you protect  with your shield of love. (Psalm 5: 11-12) Listening to a sermon by John Piper became an…

Dry Bones Worship

After a long day at work and normal exhaustion, I found myself sitting in a church to worship at a Kari Jobe concert.  My children were so excited to be there.  Honestly, I was excited to be there but I was done, raveled, and a tad fed up in some areas.  I had an attitude.  The hardest…

By faith–GOD!

By faith Noah, being warned by God about things not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his household.  Hebrews 11:7 Has God called you to step out in faith on behalf of your family? It might seem crazy or impossible and perhaps you don’t have the full story yet.  All…
