It’s ALL GOOD- even when life’s not perfect!

Hi, I’m Anne and welcome to Shades of Color and Light. It’s easy to say, “Life’s not perfect right now” and put our dreams on hold. But, even when life isn’t perfect we need to remember- It’s ALL GOOD! I believe we must pursue our purpose moments in the face of imperfections and not let…

Begin Now doing what you love

Recently I read a book called “Big Magic- Creative Living Beyond Fear” by Elizabeth Gilbert. Elizabeth puts forth the idea that we give up what brings us joy because it does not produce an income. This idea is what hit closest to home for me and inspired my latest video. In my early twenties I…

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. This is why blooms from your life in the dry, desert seasons are the most interesting…

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. Life isn’t perfect and some of us get thrown more curve balls than others yet there is always the thread of hope which leads us…

Pure, Free, Healthy and Open. Part 3 Prayer for Cities

This morning as I was praying for Washington D.C. this phrase came to me. “Let’s change the face of this place.”  This is a declaration for the city prayer pioneers to use releasing their words and commanding the Heavenly Host. We declare over our cities their face be changed no longer looking as they have but…

Our enemy is confident in our weakness. Part Three.

In my vision, I saw black bulls coming down from the air like rain.  One after another they touched down on the earth and began to chase the few sheep who were grazing away from the flock.  But why bulls?  Why did I see bulls coming down as opposed to some other animal?  I believe…

Feed your spirit- it’s hungry too.

Manna was supernatural food yet those who ate it died. Jesus is the bread of life.  His flesh is also supernatural food yet He adds this promise, “Whoever feeds on this bread will live forever”. (John 6:53-58 ESV) One type of bread was for the body and the other for the spirit.  There is nothing wrong…

Win your race by looking at the Prize.

I’ve been thinking about Jesus being the ONE WHO SAW.  He saw the glory of what awaited him and called it JOY.  This joy is what gave him strength to endure pain and suffering of the cross.  He disregarded the shame of the cross on account of a yet unrealized joy. Who can have this…

Don’t edit your book into oblivion before it’s complete.

I feel like someone needs encouraged today to JUST START WRITING! Don’t be afraid to start writing.  And write and write and write. Don’t wait until it’s perfect or you have everything you need.  Just start writing.  And if you are already writing the most important thing to remember is: There is always enough time…

Pursue God to reveal your special gifting.

I began writing Light From A Dark Night in my head as soon as we were home from China in November 2013.  A few months later in February 2014 I began putting my thoughts into words.  It took me three years to finish and the book was published in February 2017. It was an exhilarating…

Who will Tap into Eternal Time and Achieve Purpose?

Every moment is about reaching backwards in time to eternal time. We must go back to our beginning. The beginning which was with God. Everyone existed within God in eternity before being born on earth.  So you were known by God and all of Heaven. I find this an exciting and comforting thought.  God knew me…

Chosen for the Honor: Prophets call in the Rain

Many are called but few chosen.  As an example, many may have been called but Isaiah was chosen.  He was chosen to SEE, PROPHECY, and PRAY.  Isaiah was chosen to SEE what God was doing, PROPHECY “there will be no rain”, then PRAY to CALL IN THE RAIN at the appointed time. Many are called and I’m…

The Living Crowns

Have you heard it said, “American’s have a fascination with Royalty”?  I believe this is true and rightly so!  But I don’t think it’s just an American fascination.  The world is interested in those who are of royal birth and carry a royal title. We love to peek into their personal and public lives trying…

Message from an Angel Passing By: There is Grace for Your Path Today.

This morning the sky was filled with Angels.  Angels on the move!  As they passed I asked, “What are you saying?” And this was their reply: “Saving Grace give way to Joy Saving Grace give place to Joy Saving Grace Armed with Peace Saving Grace for All. Saving Grace Multiplied Saving Grace Flowing Inside. There…

Act now and get your blessing flowing

I was looking through some file folders filled with notes regarding some topics I wanted to write about “one day”.  Before there were blogs and blog sites I had nowhere to go with what God was giving me to write.  I was faithful to write down what I heard and organize it but the vehicle…

God is strong enough to finish what he started

No outside force or circumstance can stop God’s destiny for your life.  However, you (your inner person) can stop the flow of destiny by ignoring it, rebelling against it, or giving up on it entirely. There can be many reasons for stopping up the flow of God such as outside hindering forces or negative circumstances…
