Waiting With Hope

“I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His Word I put my hope.” (Psalm 130:5) I love this verse. David is waiting, but it’s how; with every fiber of his being. With his all, in his all. (Luke 10:27) And it’s where He is placing his hope; in God’s Holy Word; the only infallible words ever spoken. What if we took his lead in our waiting? What if we remember that Jesus, at this very second, is fighting for you and me in prayer? (Romans 8:34) He is praying for us to not trust in our feelings or what we see, but to trust that He is for us and with us AT ALL TIMES; In … Continue readingWaiting With Hope

“Forgive & Forget”

This is a tall order. You picking up what I’m putting down? But NOT with our God. Have you visited the Sea of Forgetfulness? Go there with me and dip into the deep deep love of Christ. Picture with me all your wrongdoings being thrown in, dropping to the bottom, never to be dug up again. These include the super heavy ones.

When God’s grace and mercy collides with our worst pieces and leaves a dent on our hearts, changing us now and forever. Oh the sweet sweet love of Jesus. Stay at … Continue reading“Forgive & Forget”

It’s All Gain

I overheard a Mom and Dad speaking to their young daughter. My ears perked up when I heard the word “sacrifice” fill the air and what followed as they explained to her it’s meaning. “It means you’re willing to lose something to gain something.” Oh my heart. I’m not sure exactly what they were talking about, but so many thoughts came in like a flood. What comes to mind when you hear the word sacrifice? I love that they pointed out that it’s a “gain,” cause we don’t always think of it as gain. I began to quietly ponder in my heart and I heard the similar words of Jesus stir. Jesus said to all of His followers, “If you … Continue readingIt’s All Gain

Letting Go

Do you think that daily we have to let go in order to receive what the Lord wants to extend? Is open-handedness the key? Are we to let Him continually examine our thoughts so He can uproot what doesn’t belong? To input what’s true? To keep us standing firm and walking in the joy of our salvation? Psalms 139:23 speaks to letting go and inviting the Lord’s searching gaze to come into our hearts. To welcome Him to examine us through and through, to find the hidden things that are hindering our lives, to sift through all our anxious cares. I WONDER? How can we better open our hearts and minds? Don’t we all want to live in His glorious … Continue readingLetting Go
