The Breaking

"Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." John 12:24 NIV Do you ever question why things happen to you? I think, especially, if we find similar things happen to us repeatedly we begin [...]

Roadblocks and Forced Stops

Have you ever taken a road only to find it's a dead-end or there's a roadblock keeping you from traveling on? It can be extremely frustrating, especially if you are running late or just in a hurry! Or if you are dead-set on having your way! I was all ready to go, and so looking [...]

Letting Go

Are you carrying too much? What do you need to let go of? I ask you this because I have been carrying too much. I temporarily took a break from posting because my life felt overwhelming. And now I come back to writing still feeling overwhelmed and stressed but I have learned something. This thing [...]

No one who [habitually] sins has either seen or known Him [recognized, perceived or understood Him or has had an experiential acquaintance with Him]." Matthew 5:8 "Blessed are [...]

Surrendering: Seeking God’s Agenda

I am a planner, I love getting my calendar out to plan a get-together, or mark down an appointment. I like writing out my to-do list, because I enjoy marking off what I have accomplished. I enjoy planning menus and having it all organized for easy meals. I love planning retreats. I look forward to planning coffee [...]

Surrendering: Growing Meek in Spirit

Meekness is not a term used very often today. Jesus used it to describe Himself in Matthew 11:29 AMPC. He said, "Take my yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart..." The word meek is defined according the HELPS Word Studies as "not weakness" but rather [...]
