Guard Your Heart

Guarding your heart; I wonder if we really know what this means. You usually hear people say this when talking to someone about “relationships”.  The conversation goes something like this: “I met someone and I am just not sure….” or “They said they were sorry, but…” To which the well intentioned, but often misinformed person […]

I just love a good testimony, don’t you? I love to hear how God is moving in someone’s life and blessing them. Earlier today, as I was scrolling through Facebook, I came across a friends post. Reading his story inspired me and I asked him if I could share it with you. You see, some […]

Let Go & Grab Hold

Being stuck is an unsettling feeling. It can feel like being stuck in a tar pit and no matter how hard you try you can’t lift your feet out of it. It grips you with the tentacles of anxiety, fear, depression, regret, despair… I have never seen quicksand, but in movies, someone gets stuck in […]

Love-O-Meter

      If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love [for others growing out of God’s love for me], then I have become only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal [just an annoying distraction].  And if I have the gift of prophecy [and speak a new message from God to […]

Real Love, His Love

There is comfort in love; safety and freedom. What freedom and security to be completely vulnerable and naked, knowing you are loved and cared for, no matter the flaws, because your Beloved loves you unconditionally. Such love is willing to lay His life down for you, defend you, hold you, care for the things you […]
