The Space Between

That space between Before & After. That sliver of time between the unknown and the now known. That tiny AND between the here and now. It’s profound what that AND holds. It’s the moment between what you didn’t know and what you know now. It’s the moment between your life before a discovery and the life after the discovery. It’s the space between. The … Read More The Space Between

Missed Blessings

That nudge I get, the one that I can’t ignore, that’s The Holy Spirit. My JESUS living in me. Convicting. Pushing. Nudging. HIS presence. Every single time that I obey whatever it is that God lays on my heart, I am blessed. Usually the obedience is preceded with an uncomfortable feeling of SELF fighting with The Holy Spirit. I.E. : “you should really go … Read More Missed Blessings

Without JESUS

I’ve found that with grief comes moodiness. Some days I’m more irritable than others. Some parts of the day I’m “ok” and at other moments I’m not. Not many people see those sides of my grief. Or if they do, I don’t even realize it. Truth is, I don’t know when the low moments will occur. Anything can trigger them. They may last 5 … Read More Without JESUS

Time Doesn’t Stop For Anyone

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. (Psalm 116:15 ESV) When I knew my Daddy was definitely dying, (I believe he had coded 2 or 3 times by this point) as we all surrounded him in the hospital, I sang “Jesus Loves Me” and “Zippity Doo Dah” in his left ear. (He used to sing the last one … Read More Time Doesn’t Stop For Anyone

Wrong Label

Labels are for cans of food. Labels are for items of clothing. Labels are NOT for people. They shouldn’t be…that is. Romans 2:3 ~ Do you suppose, O man —- you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself —- that you will escape the judgement of God? Hmmm. OUCH. So…. we are all guilty? Maybe? Definitely? GUILTY.   Psalm … Read More Wrong Label

Don’t Be A Blessing Robber

    There are times when we least expect it that GOD reaches out and loves on us. We don’t deserve it, none of us do, but HE freely gives us HIS LOVE. I don’t know why it still shocks me sometimes… My FATHER GOD, HE loves me! So much that HE speaks to me in a language that touches my soul. Through the obedience … Read More Don’t Be A Blessing Robber

When You Are Hurting

I wish I could give a simple answer. An AHA!! type of  answer..that could make things make sense to people who are hurting.   I can’t.   I can only point the hurting to the ONE who heals all hurt. In HIS time..in HIS way. The ONE who promises to never leave us. The ONE who gives wisdom and knowledge to all who ask. … Read More When You Are Hurting

Even When

    Even when…things are falling apart, God is still God. HE remains sovereign. HE is always good, and only capable of LOVE.   Even when…things fall and break into tiny pieces…like one of my favorite coffee mugs did this morning..it’s not the end of the world.   God knows all. HE is in control of ALL. HE is over ALL.   When friendships … Read More Even When

Just Passing Through

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. (Psalms 34:18 NLT) There are things in this world that happen, that I’ll never understand. I won’t claim to understand. This I know, My Savior.. My Redeemer, is GOOD. The truth is that this world that we live in is broken and sinful. So much so, that God sent His … Read More Just Passing Through

My Safe Refuge

Nahum 1:7 (NIV) ~ The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him. This past week has been one of those weeks that made me thankful & tired all at the same. If ya know what I mean… We all have times of trouble. Times when we need rest. Nobody is exempt. That’s what you … Read More My Safe Refuge

Even When I Don’t Feel Like It

    Psalm 139:1-4 (ESV) 1 O Lord, you have searched me and known me! 2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. 3 You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. 4 Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether. … Read More Even When I Don’t Feel Like It

When Troubles Come

I woke up really early this morning. If you know me very well, then you know that 4:45 a.m. is very very early for me. My dog woke me up first…she’s a 6 year old toy poodle that occasionally likes to wake me up so that she can go out and graze like a horse. Usually I go take her out, but being that … Read More When Troubles Come
