I'm so over believing the lies of my accuser. The accusations of my accuser. I'm choosing life! I'm choosing joy! The joy of the Lord is most certainly our strength. For far too long, I've bent under the pressure of the enemy, listening to his bullshit. I'm done! Jesus didn't die so we could live … Continue reading Busting Out of the Cell
Free will. The will is a funny thing. It is a gift yet can seem to be a curse. It is to be submitted before God as our Lord, King, Father, friend. That's the best scenario, anyway. Yet, daily, this is a choice, a decision we have. To choose. Oh, the gift of choice. What … Continue reading The Will
The Simple Heart
a collaborative conversation Dear one, you are still a child. Don't look at this in terms of a maturity level judged by the world around you. This has nothing to do with your image but your relationship to Me. You are My child, ever-learning, ever-experimenting. You are a scientist, testing new hypotheses daily. Do not … Continue reading The Simple Heart
Obedience, or relationship?
In the garden, couldn't God have told Adam and Eve beforehand what consequences would come for both them and every generation after them if they ate of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? But of course, He most certainly could have. But He didn't. Why? Why watch us, His beloved creation, or so … Continue reading Obedience, or relationship?
The Heart What does "guard your heart" mean, anyway? "Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life," Proverbs 4:23 tells us. The King James version tells us "for out of it are the issues of life." I believe that one facet is this: It is to be sure … Continue reading The Heart
Some enemies come as calamities through the front door, loud and clamorous, clearly seeking to kill, steal and destroy our lives. Others take a gentler, more subtle approach. They crawl in the back window. They come in a harmless form, even offering to help in the kitchen. You know, we go through life experiences and … Continue reading The Sneak
Pedestals of Sand
How much of our lives are spent trying to make it look like we have it all together? This self-image, self-pedestal producing mindset .. It is self-destroying.

07.11.2015 Victory Sound It started off faint. So faint, I felt as if I had to pretend I was hearing it. But it was real, I couldn’t deny it. You know, faith. I have heard about this song, this song of victory. But I wondered, did it exist? I believed it did. I’d been told … Continue reading Victory Sound
Throwback Thursday: #noego
No matter where I go, I refuse to be either ashamed of, or overcome by, where I came from. Check the picture. I was a super confused teenager (per the picture) and had a lot of issues laid out before me from age 6 to overcome. In middle and high school, I struggled with not … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: #noego
I sit underneath a tree at the park. A circular fountain ahead of me beautifully sprays into the air, intentionally spraying into itself.
