“Beware in your prayers, above everything else, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can do. Expect unexpected things, ‘above all that we ask or think’. Each time, before you Intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ, andRead more →
A lung burning lie that says I’ll never be well, settles like a heavy weight on my chest during a return of illness. The lie also plays during flashbacks from negative past memories reminding me that in the natural sense I’ll never be whole. I know those are lies. God is more powerful than any illness. The God who created the universe can renew any life. There is nothing that the enemy hasn’t sought to destroy thatRead more →
Through God’s grace, I was blessed last week to attend the American Christian Fiction Writer’s (ACFW) Conference in Denver, Colorado. I loved visiting with my buddies, attending wonderful classes, meeting new friends, worshiping, hugging my agent, and pitching to an acquisition editor for a publisher. God blessed me abundantly. The editor requested to see my full manuscript! Woo hoo! With all the fun, life is still filled with waiting. Even when a publisher accepts my book,Read more →
“When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, ‘Who do people say the Son of Man is?’ They replied, ‘Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’ ‘But what about you?’ he asked. ‘Who do you say I am?’” (Matthew 16:13-15 NIV). I’ve been thinking about Jesus’ question, “Who do you say I am?” Jesus is first and foremost my Savior. He saved me. He died so that I may live. The older I get, the more life I experience, the deeper the meaning. Every day He shows facets of His amazing, unfailing love. Oh my, what a Savior!Read more →
My sweet husband and I drove to Bogus Basin Ski Resort. During the off-season months the area is open to hikers and bikers. We parked in one of the areas at about the 6000 foot level, and using the ski and snowshoe trails hiked to the top — 7582 feet! Woo hoo! I’ve decided that life as a Christ follower is a narrow, curvy path. We never know what’s around the next bend, but we know Who is leading the way.
Some days are fun like playing peek-a-bo, and the turn in the road is delightful.
I love this quote by Beth Moore…
“My prayer, my cry is, ‘Thrill me with Your Word. Delight me with Your Word. Make this my bread and my meat. Cause me to perceive You through what I read, through what I see, through what I experience. Disclose yourself to me. Give me perception.’” Beth MooreRead more →
I’m feeling much better today even have a spring in my step and a smile on my face. The storms still raging, the waves are fifty stories high, and our little Buffaloe boat seems overwhelmed. The wind is lashing at my face and the lightening is splitting the sky. But I tell ya, I’m standing in the helm with my arms outstretched like the heroine in Titanic. The problem yesterday wasn’t so much the problem, but howRead more →
Yesterday, I quoted Max Lucado from his book, Fearless. Today, I’m fighting a mountain of fears. After 448 days between jobs, our finances took a rather large hit. The struggles in the economy impacted our retirement funds, and our Texas house is still on the market after almost six months. We’ve made it amazingly well, and even kept our credit rating at an excellent level—all definitely by the grace of God. Today I’m scared. I’m a littleRead more →
