Drawing Near: Love Is…

Dear Reader, I pray you’ll join me in speaking these words, which are based on 1 Corinthians 13, to our heavenly Father. Let’s worship Him together, knowing His love makes all the difference in each of our lives ❤️. In Christ’s Love, Abba! Father, Love is patient. Love is You, patiently working in us and making us more like Christ. Love is kind, those actions that tenderly touch us. Love bears all things. It covers the heartaches and heartbreaks, the sufferings and sorrow, the inconceiveable. Love […]

Ministry Update: Fears, Requests, & Privileges

“He makes my feet like hinds’ feet, And sets me upon my high places.” Psalm 18:33 Dear Readers, Yesterday I posted my “Encouragement for You ~ Ezekiel 3:8” video, and it contains a message I hesitated to share. Yet posting it enabled me to realize that I’m afraid—afraid of traveling to another country, afraid of getting sick from the heat or something else, afraid of getting exhausted, and afraid I’ll communicate poorly when it’s time to teach God’s Word. Though I’m not thrilled to relay these […]

Freedom? Here’s How to Get It

“Jesus therefore was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, ‘If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’” John 8:31-32 I never noticed this before. And I’m fascinated… I’ve heard John 8:32 quoted as a stand-alone verse countless times. But recently, I caught the first part of the sentence, which is nestled unmistakably in verse 31. The connection between the two verses washed over me like a […]

Ministry Update: A Trip, a Conference, & a Journey

Dear Readers, January has blown in like gusts of snow on a windy day. Despite experiencing my second round of a nasty cold virus, I’m thankful for energy to tackle new and continuing projects. Just this morning I focused my heart on accomplishing today’s goals in the Spirit rather than fruitlessly laboring in my own strength—a.k.a., the flesh. I’d love to share the verse God used to inspire me: “‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.” Zech. 4:6 Don’t […]

Mortifying Moments & How to Avoid a Major One

We’ve all had them: mortifying moments. Recently as I stirred a huge pot of chili, I recalled one such moment in my life. I was a fairly new wife who covered every detail before company arrived—like cleaning the entire house and working on the meal. One particular day, we hosted my husband’s aunt, uncle, and cousin. I think I served meatloaf, and I still remember my mortification as my cousin-in-law pulled a long hair from his mouth while we ate. Ewwwww! I cringe as I remember. I’m still […]
