Lately I feel like every plan I make, fails. I made plans for my birthday, they fail through. My husband tried to find something else, but I had my heart set on my original plans. I rescheduled those plans, and then cancelled out other plans I had made with a friend because the availability fell... Continue Reading →

Sign to Nowhere

We were driving down the road, and I saw this street sign, without a street. There was a barbed wire fence, and no access easement at all. It was just a weird thing, and there were a couple of these along the road we were traveling. Why would there be a street sign on a... Continue Reading →

Walk in the River

I grew up around a lake, not a river. I spent most of my childhood at the lake, jumping off the cliffs or just walking straight into the water. What we are familiar with shapes our understanding of the Bible; we can not picture what we don't know. Tonight as I was in Bible Study... Continue Reading →

Lessons from a Prodigal and His Brother

“And he said, “There was a man who had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of property that is coming to me.’ And he divided his property between them. Not many days later, the younger son gathered all he had and took a journey into... Continue Reading →


““Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat; but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”” Luke‬ ‭22:31-32‬ ‭ I am sitting in the desert with the only sound a random passing car from time to...

Succeed or Fail, I Give Myself Permission

I was scanning my emails this morning, and saw the Five Minute Friday prompt word PERMISSION. And immediately I thought, why is it that I fail to step out where I know God has called me? He has given me permission. He equips me. He calls me. The failure comes in that I haven't given... Continue Reading →

Faith of a Mustard Seed

“And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” Matthew‬ ‭17:20‬ So this scripture...

One Spirit

We live in a culture that very much prizes individuality. We want to stand out and be ourselves a unique expression; yet, as believers we are one spirit with God. “But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him.” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:17‬ ‭ESV‬‬ Our lives and actions, thoughts and words, if...

Migrating Prayers

As I was praying today, one of the items on my list was for the unaccompanied minors at the U.S. border. I have prayed a lot for them over the past few years as the need came before me. I am usually praying for their safety. That the process and separation will not leave any... Continue Reading →

Word and Power, not either/or

“Jesus said to them, “Is this not the reason you are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God?”‭‭Mark‬ ‭12:24‬ ‭ESV‬‬ It is not enough to know Scriptures, the Pharisees and Sadducees both to quote them. We must walk in the truth of the Word and in the power of the... Continue Reading →
