~WELCOME TO MY JOURNAL~
My journal — my hidden place with the Lord — holds so many secrets, unlocking so many places that have freed my heart. It’s my holy hope that opening these pages together, we will unlock places where we wrestle. That we will be tackled with answers, opened to the truth and left immersed in God’s perfect love, grace and mercy.
Do you feel like giving up? Do you hear messages that say you should? I’m finding life is a daily weeding & watering, it’s about perseverance! This, a perfect reminder. Listen up. Hear the voice of truth. Don’t give up! Take this little boy’s lead. In due time we will reap a harvest. (Gal 6:9) #godwithus #dailytrust #faith #truth #neveralone #perseverance
Do you worry over what to wear? Over how to present yourself in front of the Lord? Jesus wants you as you are. He isn’t interested in us covering up ourselves, He wants us to wear our hearts on our sleeve!!! Don’t worry, come naked—He longs to cover you & me in forgiveness & grace & send us away dancing! PS Jesus is everywhere, … Continue readingWhat to Wear
WE ARE HIS MOST PRIZED POSSESSIONS! The crescendo of all creation was us! He saved the best for last and calls us His favorite. (Genesis 1:31) Under the open skies, all creation worships Him. Yet over all that was created, we are His most prized creation, made in His image and made for heart connection. (Genesis 1:27) It’s true. Creation was finally complete once … Continue readingBest Kept Secret: We are God’s Favorite
I wept as this truth was reestablished in my heart and the Father pulled me close to His chest. Push play & listen to Lucy and her Daddy sing. Be held and hear the truth. Amen and Alleluia. Song: A God Who Sees (Jason Upton)
Have you ever noticed how creation pours forth speech? Honestly, it does. Why do you think that we post so many pictures of sunsets, rolling waves, mountains and hills? Isn’t it because we see the power in it all? What is creation saying? It proclaims the Creator! His qualities, His purpose and His power are just outside our window. “We are without excuse to … Continue readingOpen Display
“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18) Ever noticed that the cute white painted brick house down the street begins to look awfully dirty once the snow falls to meet its foundation? Or had a shirt … Continue readingSnow Reminds Me of Easter
“MARY HAD THE PERFECT LAMB WHOSE FLEECE IS WHITE AS SNOW!” So, let’s be sure we get this straight. Mary did not have a little lamb, but the virgin gave birth to the perfect male spotless lamb, born to die. The one who took our place, served our sentence and rose from the grave to prove its finality. Read all about it!!!! Not in … Continue readingMary’s Lamb Wasn’t Little
We all have desires, some are good, they are a delight to us, to the Lord and to others. Other desires we’d prefer to take a hike, tied to habits and attitudes that take over and weigh us down. Then still there are more that we might not even realize. Did you ever stop to wonder what God’s desire is? I found a little … Continue readingDesires of the Heart
We’ve moved so many times in our marriage. Last count was five. We’ve always bought the fixer-upper, moved in and given it a whole new look, settling into our new home. Our last move proved a little different. Before pulling the trigger we actually paused to think on why we were moving and it really was a good idea. Our ideas in the past … Continue readingMake A Move
Oh, I love to sing. Just ask my family. An ole’ favorite took my heart to deep places this week with just this one line ~ Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. Most all of us are familiar with this song, but do we rest in this word? A wretch? Whoa! Do we realize what we’re admitting? We … Continue readingAmazing Grace in Full Color

Hi, I’m Lori
Behind any of my words is a girl who has not always walked the straight and narrow. One who has hit some dead ends, sharp turns, heartaches of regret and challenges. Behind any of my words is a heart that desires to share the windy road; for us to know and discover God’s ultimate desire. That whatever path we find ourselves on, it’ll stir us and lead us home to His safe embrace.
Life is better when we travel together.
