A Luxurious Banquet

A lavish banquet has taken years to plan. The food, the decorations, the finest wine, the large seating arrangement, and exquisite music. The Guest of honor has sent out His invitations way in advance. Did you note that the RSVP requires prayer? Jesus extended us a privilege when He invited us to pray. As His…

Be Ye Humble

“The 24 elders fall down and worship the One who lives forever and ever.” Rev 4:10 ❤️ As the 24 humbly bowed down to worship, so too, we humbly obey to fast and pray. John Wesley fasted until 4 pm every Wed and Fri, to seek God’s wisdom and understanding. HUMILITY is the highest character…

Freedom of Choice

No matter what the NEWS is saying, regardless if we have been denied access to social media, we can CHOOSE our thoughts and no government but our own can take that FREEDOM away from us. Our Father told us to “Capture EVERY Thought” and in His wisdom, our Creator, who knows all things, past, present…

Competent not Compared

It is easy to envy, or compare myself to others. For instance my comfort colors, antiques, grandma cozy is what it is. I actually cringe to admit that I have compared my body size to the delicately petite — and my style of decorating to the modern clean lines of homes simply adorned without my…

Take the BEST option

Look ahead through a lens of HOPE. We are free to choose a good idea, a better thought, or the BEST way to go. If the lens on our view of life is dirty with dust from the past, the picture we capture of the world and of ourselves develops into a blurred, unpleasing snapshot.…

Be Who God Created

The freedom of being ALL of who God intended us to be, takes time. Like a caterpillar who stuffs itself full of all that life has to offer, one day it stops, becomes still, and gets transformed. Living in the fullness of God’s love comes at the expense of losing who we have always been.…

Bless Don’t Curse

Our words are powerful! We choose hour by hour to bless with our words, or curse ourselves and others by the words we speak. When we speak words of life, we are mixing the living Word of God with the power of our tongue. We release the supernatural blessings of God to overcome and cancel…

Imagine

Whatever you THINK about grows! Imagine these thoughts growing into your every day reality! Our SELF-TALK actually grows a new THOUGHT TREE of LIFE. Think on these things and grow more positive moment by moment today! I am a child of God. I am possessed by the King of kings. I am His beloved. I…

A Day of Joy

Have you ever ENJOYED a “suddenly” moment in your life? It suddenly dawned on me today, how very blessed I am! As we live and breathe by the extraordinary grace of God, I pray you get swept up in a marvelous SUDDEN moment where you feel the Holy Spirit swirling within you. Today we all…

Love Disciplines

When kids know they are loved and valued, they respond to discipline, the rules, and the boundaries that are set by parents, then society. They mature to understand and appreciate the protection of hearing “NO” that is not acceptable behavior. “The Lord disciplines those He loves.” Proverbs 3:12 As functioning adults we can look back and appreciate how our parents…
