Incorruptible Tenderness

I’ve been told countless times to guard my own heart, and I have failed. I understood not what guarding entailed, nor why it was needed. I used to think it meant higher walls and greater discernment, but I was wrong. To guard my heart is to surrender it to the One who guards it with His peace. It meant to yield in prayer and full relationship to the One who exchanged my worries for promises. It was a communication war, us throwing grenades of love at each other. I sang a new song to Him, and He would respond,...

Remember

I will remember the deeds of the Lord;     yes, I will remember your wonders of old. I will ponder all your work,     and meditate on your mighty deeds. Your way, O God, is holy.     What god is great like our God? You are the God who works wonders;     you have made known your might among the peoples. -Psalm 77:11-14 Remember today who created the world. Remember that He invented the mountains. Remember that He spread out the oceans like a blanket, and told the waves to crash on the shore. Remember that He thought of you, yes you. He made...

Re-receive

After stepping out of the “regular world” and immersing myself into the wild abandon of the lifestyle Jesus had, I came back really different. Maybe it was the selling of pretty much all my stuff, watching my washer and dryer get loaded up on a dolly and wheeled out. Watching my couch get carried away. Loading up my big flat screen into my car and then putting it in a friend’s car, never to be seen again. I didn’t realize that I wouldn’t purchase another tv for the next 4 years and counting. I didn’t know I was done...

Sweet Timing: Going with the Flow

Scriptures: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, 1 Peter 5:10 Read it on Bible Gateway here. The scriptures I posted are about timing. God and the right timing. I am praying a deep discernment over you as you journey with the Lord about what He’s currently asking you to do with Him. Look at His hands and ask Him what He’s doing. You are to mimic Him in a childlike manner. I see Him holding hands with the widows. I see Him writing plans voraciously over a big, fancy desk. I see Him opening up blueprints and showing us drawings of buildings and businesses...

My Easter Basket

Guess what I did on Easter? Yep. I overslept. I had looked forward to my plans for an embarrassingly long amount of time, for various reasons. For one, I don’t do Easter alone, ever. Easter is full of kids, hidden things being found, pastels, southern food, and good preaching. It’s a solid holiday for me. My birthday sometimes it falls right on Easter, and that’s just… *sigh*… it’s like a built-in birthday party. My best birthdays were Easters. I’m born AND Jesus is risen? Hallelujah. Sign me up. Two… well,  I’m in Georgia… that’s a 14-hour drive to my closest...
