You are a rare gift given to the World

There is no earthly gift of value to lay as an offering before God.  I learned this a few years ago when a vision of Heaven opened up to me a few years ago.  (You can read about this vision in my book, “Light from a Dark Night) When standing in the presence of God…

Begin Now doing what you love

Have you abandoned the LAW of PROGRESS?

Are there not some of us, beloved, who have been trying a good while to get back an old experience? If we succeeded we should only be where we were, and if we are only going to get where we were, we have abandoned the law of progress and begun the downward retrogression. “The A.B….

Love someone who BLOOMS in their desert

There is something beautiful and unexpected about seeing something bloom where it shouldn’t. Like a cactus flowering in the desert. These cactus bloom in dry, desert conditions where other plants would not survive much less bring forth beautiful flowers.

Bloom Where You are Planted

Why is “Bloom where you are planted” such a beloved and powerful saying? Because, each of us immediately identifies with the sentiment of wanting to thrive no matter the circumstances.

Pursuing the Out of the Ordinary idea

Have you ever been going down life’s path only to find yourself suddenly pursuing something totally bizarre and out of the ordinary? That’s just what happened to me last month.  I was set to start writing my second book when I had a crazy idea come to me.  And what was this crazy idea? “Start…

Have Writer’s Block? Find out why!

Give what you have to someone in need

We are in this thing called “LIFE” together and each one of us has times when we’ve felt the wind knocked out of our sails.  Will you be someone who can help others through their tough time? Or do you need some help today?  Listen to my first (I readily admit to this being a…

Be flexible to keep in step with your purpose

“Sometimes it’s important to be flexible and willing to change if internally we “know in our knower” it’s the right thing to do.  We do our best when answering God’s call and begin to follow the path we feel is right at the moment.  But there are times when the time has just come when…

Your life story is worth more than pure gold

Each one of us has life experiences which seem similar to others but, because of our unique life pattern they bear a distinct mark which cannot be copied by any other. This distinct mark is our footprint.  It becomes our testament to the world.  Therefore, with experiences flavored with the unique blend of you, what…

Without Fear; Find Your True Self

“You’re always on my mind. You’re always in my dreams. Your worth and value exceeds all wealth. My thoughts toward you are good. My dreams for you are good. No matter what you’ve done (or not done) makes no difference to me. I’m not your boss! I’m not looking for performance! I’m looking for you…

Are you different than everyone else?

Maybe no one has anything nice to say about your family.  They may be deemed lazy by others. But YOU are different.  You are a hard worker. But why are you different?

Ignore your feelings and hold on to Faith.

Feelings are based on the physical interpretation of our surroundings.  They communicate to us on a lower frequency than faith. Feelings are earthly in nature and can be manipulated by many things. Faith is a spiritual substance not able to be measured by  earthly standards. Therefore faith operates on a higher frequency than our five…

Is there anything worse than being tempted to quit on love?  Sure, it might sound good to stop loving someone while your mind keeps fresh wounds alive.

Agree with God’s Angels. Part 4 Prayer for Cities.

Agree with God’s Heavenly Angels. All Angels are ministering spirits or serving spirits sent to people who are going to receive salvation.  He sends them to serve us – to help us.  After I received “Song of an Angel passing by”, God gave me the third strategy for restoring our cities: “Agree with God’s Angels as they…
