Embracing The Full Freedom Of Christ As A Single Woman

Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you. Galatians 5:1 MSG There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus....

Wear The Same Clothes Everyday

Facebook reminded me of this little play on Colossians 3:12 today -- from 6 years ago! Still love that God is most delighted when I wear the same clothes every day, the ones God designed for me to wear. Reminds me, too, of when kids dress like their...

Auguries and Destinies

To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour from "Auguries of Innocence" by William Blake   The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our...

When I forget, God Remembers

Forgetting, deleting, redoing, undoing. I wrote this post two nights ago, while I was meditating on all I think about, and the thoughts I don't write down, and that get lost in the mist of my conscious mind. Not wanting to forget my meditations on that subject, I...

How to Survive the Mean Seasons

Some days in the late Spring, from April to May, I hate living in Florida. It's not that the weather is bad, if anything, these are some of the most pleasant days of the year. The longer days are warm, but with a touch of coolness in the...

We Have An Anchor

This past year of grief God has seen me at my best and my worst, and He had to have been hurt by my tumblings of anguish, my slashes of anger, and my scrapings of despair. It amazes me that He has not wavered one bit in His perfect love for...

Feeling Hemmed In? Me, Too!

Today I was feeling such frustration and defeat - like I was inside a strong rubber balloon, pushing and punching with all my strength until I was exhausted and frustrated. My world was a big knotted mess, and I felt powerless and...

All For Jesus

Without question the best and most acceptable services are those in which Jesus is the solitary aim of the soul, and His glory is the focus of all our endeavors. (From Truth for Life Daily)

Strength for Today, Just for Today.

I’m regretful in the first, denying the second, and worry about the third.

A friend of El Edwards said we’re only given strength for what ISs, not for the what ifs. Good and true, and spurred some thoughts. So consider…

Be Valiant

Take courage therefore, and be very valiant. (Joshua 1:7 Douay-Rheims) God, give me the courage to pick up the sword, and fight the fight. Don't let me lose faith, drop to the floor and rest against the castle wall,  thinking the battle is...

On Beauty…

We do not want merely to see beauty... we want something else which can hardly be put into words- to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it. That is why we have...

About Living Selah

I love a mystery. Selah is a word of mystery. Its meaning puzzles bible scholars, although it shows up in the book of Psalms 71 times and Habakuk 3 times. Some scholars view it as a direction to musicians to pause or take a breath. Some think it may be related to the Hebrew word “calah” which means “to weigh in the balance.” Still others think it’s a combination of two words that mean “to praise” and “to lift up.” My soul responds to all these meanings.

I get so busy in the days, weeks, months, and years, and as I gain years, the swiftness of time astonishes me. Do you feel this too? Too often the present rushes at us, running rough shod with all its urgencies.

We need to, even in the midst of what we might call “holy” or “spiritual”, take time to rest – take a breath – weigh the present and enter its spaciousness. And praise.

This is what I’d like you to find in this journal of mine. Places where you can take a breath, weigh a thought, and ring praise back to our eternal God. I write about places and times where God’s promises have rung true for me. I share about scriptures that shimmered from the page and urged me to look deeper. I hope what I share will open a space for you to encounter a peace that is not of this world, and a grace that is the most powerful force in the universe. All freely given by a good and loving God. His gifts to us in this often insane and messy world.
