Sheet Changing Day

We’ve all found comfort in daily busy-ness. But now God is calling us to find our comfort in Him alone.    Yesterday was sheet changing day. That meant the pillow cases as well. So that meant that all the pillows were in the floor without cases. When I went to put the fresh sheets on the bed I also put pillow cases on all the pillows and placed them back in their spots. I evidently got the right pillows on hubby’s side of the bed. He slept fine. But I must have picked the wrong pillows for my side. I …

Wash Your Hands and Have a Laugh

God wants you to know this morning that even in the worst of times it’s okay to find laughter in the midst of it because Joy is one of your strengths.     One evening after hubby and I had been outside we came in to wash our hands. I started washing mine first and I looked at him and said you know you’re supposed to wash your hands for twenty minutes. He said no it’s 20 seconds. I had thought when I said 20 minutes that something wasn’t right but I repeated it. Yes 20 minutes. He repeated his …

Are We Doomsdayers?

Doomsday Predictions abound but we are called to seek His face, read His Word and practice His love, mercy and grace. Hubby decided he wanted to watch a movie about a scientist survivor of a man-made plague that transforms humans into bloodthirsty mutants. Yeah. I just couldn’t watch it. While I have no fear I still didn’t want to watch a movie about a plague that wiped out most of the world. A little close to home. Oh beloved we are in what they are calling a pandemic. Some folks are sure it is the beginning of the end. Others …

Steady As She Goes

God says I AM that I AM. I AM your Captain and I will navigate you safely to the yet unseen shore.   “Steady as she goes.” I hear these words as I get up this morning. So of course I look for the origin of the phrase and I find it quite interesting. Here is what I read: It is a instruction from the captain to the helmsman of a ship, to keep the ship heading steadily on the same course regardless of gusts of wind or cross-currents. And then I read these words: When in vicinity of the …

God’s Discovery Channel

God is allowing us to discover new insights and fresh truth. We are entering uncharted territory. Nature has thrown us a curve that science hasn’t even found truth for.   I am sitting here this morning wondering what the message will be and I hear the word Discovery. We love the Discovery Channel. I am more drawn to the nature type shows and hubby likes the science and technology stuff. We have plenty to watch for both of us. Oh beloved, this morning God is giving us an opportunity in this rough season. He is opening up for us a …

Wish You Could Sleep Through It?

God wants us to know today that even though we want to sleep through it, He is wide awake and always on the throne.     This morning I woke up and thought “wish I could just sleep through it”. Rain again. Today’s rain makes this the longest stretch of consecutive rain days since 1986. I truly just want to sleep through it. Oh beloved, there are other things we’d like to sleep through aren’t there? The virus situation, family problems, financial woes, uncertain outcomes. All these things make the heart faint and the body tired. But God wants us to …

Your Season Will Change

  Ecclesiastes 3: 1 “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens” Have you been going through a rough time in your life?  Are doors closing in on you and not opening?  You are not alone!  During your life walk with Christ you will face many trials and rough patches that you feel you didn’t deserve. You see things closing when you clearly prayed for an opening. Closed doors are a blessing but you don’t know that when it’s happening to you. You may have prayed, waited and expected God to answer a dream …

New Hearts

Ezekiel 11: 19 “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.” When God changes your heart, you are changed forever. He gives you a new transformed heart, one that is pliable and ready to be used. From a hardened one to one made of flesh. My heart was pretty hard before I came to Christ, I would justify saying or doing things to people that were not very nice, when Jesus saved me my heart began to change. …

Grace Beyond Our Expectation

Decisions We Make

Proverbs 16: 9 “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps”. As a Christian woman I have learned that in my walk with God that whatever I have done, He has forgiven me.  I can’t keep looking back at the things that didn’t happen and I had to learn to move forward. Many times when I pray the past comes back to my memory to dredge it all up again. satan will always pick prayer time in an attempt to discourage me and fill my mind with things of the past to keep me bound up and …
