Look for others to help complete your puzzle

God gave all things to Christ.  He will not give any one man or movement a more complete revelation.  We need each other for full perspectives, to see a bigger whole, to complete our puzzles.  We can never do a complete work on our own.  ~Anne

Stop waiting for all the details and Just Begin

I feel this word from the Lord is not just for me but for some of you too.  “Just begin and I will give what you are seeking Me for as you move along the process. Just begin and I will show you what you desire as you get going in the process.” He’s telling…

Starve out what hinders you

Be encouraged today from the Holy Spirit who said: “I decree a fast. A fast in the land. A fast from the profane. A fast from the distractions, a fast from the meaningless. With survival on the line see and hold onto what is meaningful. Do not starve yourself on my account, nor in My Name, says The Lord. …

Beyond the Fog: Faith brings you Full Circle

This morning I woke up hearing Jesus say, “Come with Me”.  I saw Him running like he was on a morning jog.  He spoke turning to look at me but he didn’t break stride.Briefly I thought of going back to sleep but thought, “If Jesus is up, running and smiling asking me to come- I’m…

Unplug from FEAR and seek the source of a SOUND MIND

Just last week a song came to me which we used to sing over and over in church, “God has not given us a spirit of fear but the Lord has given us… Power! His Joy and Peace… He has given us a Sound Mind! Never should I be: AFRAID! Think about it. God hasn’t…

Follow the path of purpose and share your gift

Our life purpose is hidden within us and the discovery of it is the most important journey we can be on. One reason I feel our purpose can be so hard to find is we ignore the power of our natural gifts. Not natural abilities but gifts. Our gifts are something we’ve been given by…

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…

Why does coloring a Mandala make you feel peaceful?

This past year I took up the hobby of coloring. I never thought about coloring to relax or to gain a sense of peace. But this is just what coloring has done for me. I’ve read all sorts of discussion as to why this is so and even found “art therapy” to be a viable…

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…

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…

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? What purpose is there to being different?  You are different because God is in you to be the one who turns your family name around. ​ Purpose…

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…

Are you tempted to quit on love?

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. But if given the chance your inner spirit will eventually lead you away from the hurt. Then, after your heart softens you’ll wonder what in the world kind…

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…

Does it Matter where I live? Part 2 Prayer for Cities

Years ago my husband and I were in the thick of things trying to find our first home.  Our search took a couple of years as it seemed like every home we looked at and wanted already had an offer on it.  We felt like we were beat out every time. One day we were…

Living without Fear. Part 1 Prayer for Cities

WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS ARE IN AUTHORITY, THE PEOPLE REJOICE! Q. Why is it important for you to declare the righteous be in authority? A.  Because the people will rejoice!  When God’s people who truly are in Him are ruling the people can rejoice.  Heaven has come to Earth.  People can live without fear, hold jobs,…

Watch for opportunities to work

Don’t despise menial work!  Don’t pawn it off!  Instead do those activities you could do in your sleep, like laundry, mowing the grass, stocking shelves, driving to and from work – whatever they may be in your life so you can work internally. Do important work of God internally while doing those things which don’t require…

How can I forget a bad dream?

One night I had a very vivid dream which took me back to a time in my life I thought was over.  In my dream I was doing something I’d given up never to pick back up again.  I woke up puzzled wondering why I’d had a dream like that. When I prayed asking God…

One praying person can make a difference.

There are enough believers on the earth right NOW to get the job done. Even if there were only ONE believer this ONE believer could pray and take authority to change anything small or big. Remember LOT- one MAN who was righteous and prayed to God because he was not able to stand the sin…
