Talking about purpose…

I wasn’t sure what to title this post, but allow me to ramble about the topic of purpose. God made us to have purpose in this life and in the life to come. So it’s natural for us all to desire purpose. Everyone wants to be needed and feel like they are contributing in their… Continue reading Talking about purpose…

Hearing God’s voice

 Jesus said to the Pharisees, “Listen to this eternal truth: The person who sneaks over the wall to enter into the sheep pen, rather than coming through the gate, reveals himself as a thief coming to steal. But the true Shepherd walks right up to the gate, and because the gatekeeper knows who he is, he… Continue reading Hearing God’s voice

Tell me about Jesus

I have run across many people asking about who Jesus is and I wanted to write out the core of the gospel! Jesus – all that He is is hard to contain in just our human language. He is God – the Son in the trinity of Father, Son, and Spirit.  He came to fulfill… Continue reading Tell me about Jesus

Our good!

Romans 8:28 states: “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” It struck me that this verse has become the catch-all verse when things don’t go right, hence it’s taken on a negative connotation. I admit I go to that verse… Continue reading Our good!

Abandonment and David

I was reading Psalm 27 the other day and these two verses jumped out at me: “Hide not Your face from me; turn not Your servant away in anger, You Who have been my help! Cast me not off, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation! Although my father and my mother have forsaken me,… Continue reading Abandonment and David

Pour out your heart to God

If you humble yourself in God’s awesome presence, he will eventually exalt you as you leave the timing in his hands. Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you. Be well balanced and always alert, because your enemy, the devil, roams around incessantly, like a roaring… Continue reading Pour out your heart to God

Discernment and wisdom

Are you in need of guidance, discernment, wisdom for a decision, a new opportunity or a relationship? Who couldn’t use more wisdom! The more complex our society gets, the more we need wisdom to navigate ourselves through all the tangles of the world. Jesus knows all about our world and gave us the Holy Spirit… Continue reading Discernment and wisdom

God’s heart for the church service

I was praying one day and the Lord spoke this to me. It’s my hope it encourages you! “I love My church so much! You are My bride and I’m coming for you!” “I want to speak to you about worship. Hear these words of love I speak to you. Especially my body in America,… Continue reading God’s heart for the church service

Promises

I was reading Proverbs 19 the other day and verse 22 jumped out to me…“A man is charming when he displays tender mercies to others. And a lover of God who is poor and promises nothing is better than a rich liar who never keeps his promises.” This was one of those times when the Spirit starts… Continue reading Promises

Dark and Light

I love when things in the natural world teach us about eternal things. I was out walking with a friend just as the sun was about to rise, and it was hard to distinguish if a shadow was an animal or just a shadow. As we walked along, I was thinking to myself that our… Continue reading Dark and Light
