reckless abandon

God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways so that you’re ready for anything and everything, more than just ready to do what needs to be done. As one psalmist puts it, He throws caution to the winds, giving to the needy in reckless abandon. His right-living, right-giving ways never run out, never wearContinue reading “reckless abandon”

where to go for Hope?

I recently had someone ask me where i go to for Hope on those hard days. The sources I use to redirect me back to Him, so I can keep my eyes focused on my Hope and not the circumstances surrounding me.

when it rains….

There is an awful lot of storming going on around right now. Chaos attempts to take over previously peaceful shores. Grey clouds try to block the sun as far as the naked eye can see.

scaredy cat, come to the Son

I have lived more of my life than I am comfortable admitting as a scaredy cat. Afraid of what others think, promises  how God would treat me if He really knew all I had done, afraid of making a misstep, afraid of my own shadow. Fear turns into anxiety when it isn’t kept in check.Continue reading “scaredy cat, come to the Son”

His writeful place

I had a dream I had kept hidden for several decades. And a few months ago at a special prophetic night, someone publicly read the mail in my heart and spoke it over me. I am to write a book….at least one. I have had a few ideas of late, but the timing for myContinue reading “His writeful place”
