Sabbatical Eve?

I am hearing the words “Sabbatical Eve” and realizing I am on the threshold of Rest and Replenishment. This means removing myself (for awhile) from deadlines of any kind and from also from posting to social media. I wanted you guys to be the first to know that will be available, just less visible, probably Read More …

Fall or Fly?

People told me that Divine Intervention is my story, so I published it as book to encourage others that there even is still such a thing. The “leap of faith” I was considering caused some friends to stand aghast, legitimately concerned for my well-being. But recovery was teaching me to take off my God Suit Read More …

Restoring to Sanity?

When Sanballat accused Nehemiah of rebellion, he replied with a hot retort saying to the liar, “No such things as you say are being done, but you invent them in your own heart.” Nehemiah pooh-poohed the faslehoods and resumed the work of rebuilding the holy city, finishing it fifty-two days later, which was totally disheartening Read More …

Twelve Years?

My thanks to Rachel McKendree for posting this image on Facebook. It came to mind this morning when the phrase “twelve years” popped up while I was reading Nehemiah 5. In the Bible, the number twelve often signifies completion. Is this God sending encouragement to me? When I did the math, I realized this particular Read More …

A Prayer Chair?

The evidence of my past shows me that prayer is the battle, and the battle belongs to the LORD. This helps me resist temptation(s) to go beyond my purview into the choices being made by others.

Will The Wall Fall?

The story of Jericho fortifies my faith that God can weaken any walled city, any stronghold. In my actual real-life, I have marched around a well-defended fortress as God leads and have seen walls crumbling like dust and fall to the ground. Isn’t it amazing to witness the impossible become possible? Chime in if you Read More …

A High Horse?

My thanks to @TheQuoteToday for posting this image on Twitter. It reminds me how long it took before I fell off “my high horse” and finally asked two questions: “Who are You, Lord?” and “What would You have me to do?” It confirms that I was knocked off my high horse in order to follow Read More …

On Fire to Inspire?

The book I wrote called “Whit’s End” Breakdown to Breakthrough” is a snapshot of my trial by fire and of my actually emerging from it not even smelling like smoke. People tell me this book is thought-provoking and encouraging, especially for people who are feeling daunted by their need to make some serious lifestyle changes. Read More …
