Climbing Out, Climbing Up?

Years of wandering in the Scary Swamp finally compelled me to start wailing, and I looked upward with my arms wide open. Jesus must have been right there waiting all along, for the minute I gave up, He entered to offer The Ladder. Desperate as I was, I understood for the first time and accepted Read More …

Again?!?

Again? Yes again — Mathew 6:33 — again! This is such affirmation and confirmation, such encouragement to me! Apparently, Quiet Time is God’s will for me — not that I am to be rigid or scholarly about it, but to be grateful for the refreshment and revival from being fed by Hand daily — and Read More …

Blessed Bankruptcy?

My reading today contained Luke 15:17 in which Jesus said, “Joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety-nine just persons which need no repentance.” Oddly, this coincided with something I had woken up hearing (an echo from yesterday) — something about “blessed bankruptcy” from a book called Royal Insignia. The Read More …

Eyes Wide Shut?

It was new-news to me that I needed God. But when I found myself in a set of unacceptable circumstances that I simply could not conquer, I began to hear the boiling of trouble. This was surprising to me because, externally, our life looked perfectly lovely. Days were dazzling, with yachts sailing past — sometimes Read More …

Who Is Talking?

Ever since I gave myself the gift of Quiet Time to begin each morning, I have been learning to discern who is talking: When I hear worry or fret or fear, I recognize my own voice — the voice of ME-MYSELF-I. When I hear discouragement or ridicule of any kind, I know that’s DARTH VADER talking. When Read More …

Jericho Walls?

Thick walls surrounded me, but I simply did not realize I was trapped inside a fortress made from huge boulders of fear and unforgiveness. It took practically an earthquake to bring those walls down, and an unwanted pregnancy is what did it. My husband and I were 43 years old and childless on purpose (our Read More …

Hard of Hearing?

Is it possible to be extremely well-read and yet know nothing about what actually matters? God says yes! He says, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” I find it heart-breaking when someone’s library contains many books except one. This was true of me: I had read extensively and owned hundreds of literary editions. But Read More …

Heartful?

Divine Intervention kicked in yesterday with guidance I had requested as regarding a songbook I carry around as I sing to seniors. The notebook is now crammed and jammed full of song sheets that have increasing exponentially since I joined a Song Circle and started adding all the songs other people shared. Now, a year Read More …

Capital Ideas?

I thank God for revealing there are separations that are invisible to our inherited human senses, such separations as Light from Darkness, Seen from Unseen, Clean from Unclean , and so on like that. For me, it’s also clear that there is life on the one hand and there is Life with a capital L Read More …
