The finish line for Jesus’ followers is being with Him face-to-face forever in utter bliss and blessedness after our lives on this earth are over, but how do we get to the finish line when this marathon called life can be so brutally challenging, gruelingly hard, seemingly impossible, incredibly busy, and totally exhausting? “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about…

“No matter how I feel, I want to honor the Lord,” I told a sweet younger sister in the Lord. I was feeling pretty wiped out from being on the road full-time for the Lord for several years, from my ministry work, from a long-time painful personal trial, from all the solititude that comes with God’s calling for me, and…

God didn’t create humanity and then take a gargantuan God-sized cookie cutter and press it down on all people again and again to make us and our lives look all like each other. But would you agree sometimes we who are Jesus followers become preoccupied with other Christians and their lives and relationships with God and feel like our hearts…

The Holy Spirit said to me one day these words: “Timing is important. Way more important than you realize. It is fundamental to following me. You can do my will and miss my timing. You can have my timing and miss my will. You need to fulfill my will according to my timing. I have a plan and purpose for…

I had been reading a few books by famous women in ministry when I found myself feeling disappointed about my alone time with Jesus. In my estimate, I wasn’t measuring up to what I had determined was the quality and the beauty of these women’s alone time with Him. They called their time with Him devotional time. I didn’t even…

Ever felt down, discouraged, disappointed, frustrated, downhearted, and maybe even depressed because you feel like you’re not measuring up to how somebody else or some other people are serving God? Because of how they are called by Him to serve Him? Because your serving God doesn’t look like their serving God? Because you don’t have great passion and drive for…

Please do not refuse to forgive the person or people you need to forgive. The one or ones you have been refusing to forgive. The person or people you say you’re not ready to forgive. Or whom you believe don’t deserve your forgiveness. For Christ’s sake, forgive. Without further delay. Oh, please forgive, friend! Please forgive. For this reason. Forgiveness…

When was the last time you thanked God for His mercy? For the fact He sent His only begotten Son Jesus to the cross to die in your place and pay your sin punishment and be raised from the dead? For the fact He offers you forgiveness and everlasting life through faith in Jesus and turning from your sins and…

Are you covering your sins or confessing them to God? Are you forsaking your sins and turning from them to God? Or forsaking God and holding onto your sins? Please read this powerful verse: “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” Proverbs 28:13 We are foolish to try to cover…

Pleasing the Lord begins with believing in Him. With turning from our sins, believing Jesus Christ is Lord and in His death and resurrection and in turning to Him and His ways. We cannot please the Lord without faith in Him. “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he…

“My number one prayer, Lord,” I prayed before climbing into bed one night, “is that I please you.” Imagine my surprise as I considered my prayer. Oh, how mightily the Lord has changed me over the years. I lived for decades knowing virtually nothing about the Lord. Then I believed in Him but still lived for me. Then I began…

Dear friend, I’m so excited that even as I press on in a relatively challenging season of my life, the Lord is blessing me with the humbling privilege of continuing to write messages He places upon my heart to share with others yourself included. I love, love, love to write and have loved writing since I was a little girl,…

The last thing in the world you might think about when God is chastening you and bringing correction and calling you to repent for sin into which you have fallen is His beautiful love. His magnificent love. His phenomenal love. His extravagant love. His breathtaking love. His kind love. His tender love. His merciful love. His humble love. His gentle…

The Lord tells His people throughout the Bible, albeit strongly, to return to Him. They have strayed. They have wandered. They have disobeyed. They have rebelled. In one way or another, to one degree or another, they have turned away from Him. They need to turn back. To God almighty. And so, friend, do we who believe in Jesus Christ…
