Show Me Your Glory

  Hey friends,  I wanted to share an encouragement the Lord gave me this week.  I hope it blesses and encourages you:

A Word for the Daughters

This is a word the Lord gave me for the attendees of an event this past weekend.  It was for them, but it is also truth for all His daughters.  I hope it blesses you. My dear daughter, How beautiful you are to me. Your heart sings to me and I am astonished at your beauty. Beauty within and beauty without. Every travail of your heart has been felt by me. I share it with you. You are not alone. In the same way, every longing in your heart to do and… Read More

Forgiveness or Judgement

Sometimes, we need a paradigm shift because we have been looking at the same thing for most of our life, and then one day, our perspective shifts and we see it in a different way. I was reading Luke 23:34.  “Father, forgive them for they don’t know what they are doing.” In the TPT, it says while they were nailing Jesus to the cross, He said over and over again, “Father, forgive them.  They don’t know what they are doing.” Truly, they didn’t know they were crucifying the Son of God, or… Read More

The Womb of God

“Shout for joy, O barren one, you who have borne no child; Break forth into joyful shouting and cry aloud, you who have not travailed; For the sons of the desolate one will be more numerous Than the sons of the married woman,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:1 NASB Several months ago, while spending some time with the Lord, I suddenly saw an image of the Holy Spirit with a womb.  Inside the womb was the universe – everything ever created.   As I questioned the Lord about what I was seeing,… Read More

The Heresy of the Vineyard

One recent morning I was reading the passage in Isaiah 48, where Isaiah prophecies the coming of King Cyrus to take down Babylon. He called Cyrus out by name, (because Jesus already new him) 150 years before the man’s birth. I began to think about Cyrus the King who came as a conquering warrior. As I sat on my sofa and considered the man, as a warrior, rather than as a king, I suddenly felt the physical feeling of my horse getting up under me and us riding across the sand. (Years… Read More

Sunrises

“Lord, I need to see a sunrise at the beach.”  Those words have slipped from my lips a few times recently.  It’s been a few years since I’ve seen that beautiful scene in that setting. So, when on vacation, I’m the one rolling out of bed at 5:00 am to go strolling on the beach to see the sunrise.  Yeah – that one – the one grabbing my ball cap, pulling it over my bed head hair, slipping on my flip flops, and practically escaping, like a bandit, out in my pjs….

Put It Down

I was on a Zoom prayer call and suddenly I was answering a text that came in on my phone.  I felt the urge to finish the message I was typing, but that meant I was only half listening to the words and prayers being spoken on the call and NOT listening at all to the Lord for what He would say through me. “Put it down,” I told myself.  I put it down only to pick it up again! Suddenly I remembered a scripture verse;  If you do not love your brother… Read More

Just Be Bread

I threw my hands up in despair, “You are asking too much of me Lord!”   Continuing my rant, I quickly got a shower, threw on my stretchy pants and t-shirt, and tucked the soft blanket up around my neck, attempting to go sleep or at least look like I was before my roommates jolted my solace as they returned from the late session. I had come to the “Retreat” weekend immediately following some extremely, intense counseling that had exhausted me.   I had thought that I may have a few moments… Read More

Refreshing the Soil

This morning as I was washing the clinging soil from the carrots and leeks I’d just brought in from my garden, I was also listening in on a weekly prayer call full of wise and godly women. The crisp cold water released the pungent fragrance of the leeks and the sweet refreshing scent of the carrots that had grown strong in my raised beds. Our leader told us that today was the National Day of Repentance. As I stood feeling the cold water and cleaning my harvested future meals, I began to discern… Read More

Love Bootcamp

Have you ever felt like you’ve been in a holy kind of boot camp, where the Holy Spirt is trying to train you in something, teaching you a very important life lesson, (actually the most important), and you keep losing your grip on the next level of the climbing wall and slipping back down? Well, honestly, I’ve never even attempted to climb a wall. They’ve always looked insurmountable to me. With this wall though, the Lord has been so gentle with teaching and training me. He certainly has not been a drill… Read More
