The Way We Think Matters

Proverbs 23:7 is worth pondering for a few minutes: As  a man thinks so he is.  Our thoughts are truly a reflection of who we are. People ask me why it is so important to study and meditate on God’s Word. Primarily we do so to renew our minds allowing us to align with the […]

Our Counselor, the Holy Spirit

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever. John 14:16   Jesus promised His disciples that His Father would send the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, to them when He returned to the Father. The Holy Spirit would lead them into truth and teach them all […]

Slaves to Righteousness

You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. Romans 6:18   In our post-modern world today, truth is not absolute; there is no definitive right or wrong. Today’s society might view Paul’s position – either you are a slave to sin or a slave to righteousness – as narrow-minded. History […]

Dreaming with God

Have you ever thought about dreaming with God? What I mean by that is taking time to hear from God– maybe on a walk, or on a retreat, making space to hear specifically from the Lord and what is on His heart. Some of my favorite scriptures about dreaming with God: Proverbs 16:3-Commit to the Lord […]

Beware of Life Passing By

How to Read Scripture

I am often asked how to read Scripture. My response is to allow the Word to read you, to have the Word speak to you as a love letter from God the Father. When I read Scripture, I ask the Lord to speak to me through His Word and journal what I sense He is […]

River of His Presence

I want to share with you a little bit about peace. When we make space for God, His peace becomes available to us. No matter what trial or difficulty you may be facing, God’s peace gives hope. See the below entry from my devotional, Sitting at His Feet, for encouragement that the Lord has given […]

See How He Loved Him

This morning I have been focused on the story of the death of Lazarus. Many of you know this story, however in the way of a review, He was a friend of Jesus, brother of Martha and Mary. When Lazarus became deathly ill, they sent for Jesus knowing that He was the Healer, yet He […]

Don’t Postpone Joy

Sometimes I find myself saying things like:  Tomorrow will be a better day. Or If I do (blank) then I will find joy. Or… If I buy this new thing it will make me feel better. Or if I had more money… You get where I am going with this. Let’s face it. It’s easy […]

Praise & Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Earlier this week I posted Give Thanks In All Circumstances suggesting we all start a grateful journal. I encourage you to read that post and the Thanksgiving “challenge”. While today is a special day of giving thanks, we must remember that it is not the only day to give thanks for all that […]
