Revelation of Him

And from thence He arose, and went away into the borders of Tyre and Sidon. And He entered into a house, and would have no man know it; and He could not be hid. But straightway a woman, whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having heard of Him, came and fell down at His... Continue Reading →

Three little letters

My heart leapt from my chest when he uttered those three little letters.  I had no idea how much it would mean to me to hear him refer to it with that word.  We had talked many times about it, but today provided a level of hope for my soul that I hadn't expected, especially... Continue Reading →

I love being in the presence of God, whether it is in my prayet closet, my car, in corporate church service, or while going about my daily life. Knowing that He is near, and being aware of His presnece changes my perspective. I recently read a book about the revival on Azusa Street and testimonies... Continue Reading →

Vertical relationship

I hadn't gotten past the introduction in the current Audible book I'm listening to "Vertical Church" by James McDonald when I had the thought "Too often we allow horizontal relationships with others to be a substitute for the vertical relationship with God." Immediately one might think of spouse or children in this role, but my... Continue Reading →

After the storm

As the dark clouds filled the sky, I could feel the disappointment start to settle over me.  I thought about my to do list and that things that would not get done on the Sunday afternoon because of the pending storm.  Hours later, when I stepped out into my garage, I scanned the sky and...

I am

I am a native of my community. I was born and raised in the same local place. Then so moved away and spent a little more than a decade out of state before finding my way back home. That also describes my relationship with God and church. I grew up in church, from the time... Continue Reading →

Democratic Kingdom

I have been a believer for the majority of my life. Yet if I am honest with myself, I haven't really let God be the King in my life. I have preferred to allow Him to be more of a democratic leader where if He agreed with my thinking, I could submit. I have allowed... Continue Reading →

Stirring up wells

There are deep wells that are being stirred within me.  Wells that had been filled, some that I didn't even know existed, some wells that I didn't understand the drawing towards.  But they are there, waiting to be re-dug, waiting to be stirred, waiting to be drawn from again. I have always had a deep... Continue Reading →

One Thing

As I was praying the other day, I had the oddest picture pop into my head.  Initially I felt like it was a distraction, but then I focused in on it.  The picture was of a Dr. Seuss character "Thing One."  Of course there is also "Thing Two"  which was a distraction.  I paused a moment...

The Crowned Queen

POD #6: Your Royal Highness: There was a time in my life that I thought I was the crowned queen of the world.  It was a fantasy world that many of the members allowed me to fill.  Yes, my world was small, but I believed that it revolved around me.  When I became a mother,... Continue Reading →
