Is there a situation in your life that you believe that’s just the way it is; this is my life; I just have to deal with it; it’s not going to change? Do you know what? You are the same as the man by the Bethesda pool. Listen to how he responded when Jesus asked … More What’s Your Expectation?
“Are you trying to PROVE there is hope or ACCEPT there is hope?” Was the question I heard as I was walking one morning this week. BIG difference in the amount of energy required/involved. I think from all the wrestling and unsettledness of my dreams, I’ve been trying to PROVE there is hope. There is … More Prove or accept?
It is time for more transparency which means I must confess to you … I’ve been trying to crawl back into my cocoon recently because my heart had been wounded, but my Heavenly Father wouldn’t let me. He sent a friend to literally tell me I am a butterfly that needs to fly, flutter and … More My cocoon doesn’t fit any more
Not 2 things that I normally think about at the same time. But, as I sat here quietly this morning that’s what I heard “fog can turn us into Pelicans”. I just love it when my Heavenly Father grabs my attention to go “say what?” When we can only see what is right in front … More Fog and pelicans
I’m stuck. I’ve recently discovered that my expectation about my health was to be disappointed. You may have noticed I haven’t been posting for a few weeks. There was this “catch” somewhere in the part of my soul that is hard to describe that if I hope for physical healing I am going to be … More Hope that does not disappoint
Well … let’s prove “them” wrong. What do you say? I’d rather take the time to know what I have while I have it, wouldn’t you? I was just reading a friend’s blog The View is Great . You’d think from the title of the post it’s about her birthday … but what I saw was … More You know the expression “you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone”
My husband has an expression “too heavenly minded to be any earthly good”. That’s not what I’m talking about here. I’m not talking about stuffing your heart away so that you don’t feel loss, grief, pain, disappointment or whatever lack has occurred in your life; then when your heart tries to surface for air you … More Pain and Provision
Big question. Important answer. If I may, I’d like to thank our respective intellects for how hard they work at trying to figure everything out for us, sorting through all the input that we experience and trying to connect the dots so that we can rest easy. Our intellects work very hard; but right now … More Does God really love me if I am chronically ill?
I was just speaking with a friend who has been dealing with grief. During our conversation she told me several times “you’ve got to put that on your blog”. Part of me had trouble accepting that encouragement; almost a fear of what if no one else agrees with her; what will people think of me? … More Is that all there is?
