Faithful over “small” things today

By | August 15th, 2017|Faith, Practical Christian Living, Revelations and Encounters|12 Comments

Step upon step I climbed up the narrow spiraled staircase leading to the Oxford Tower. I didn't know what I would see.  All I knew was the history I had just learned from the tour guide about Oxford Palace and its tower. With each step, I didn't know how close I was to the top. I wondered [...]

What motivates your prayer life?

By | August 3rd, 2017|Practical Christian Living, Prayer, Revelations and Encounters, Spiritual Growth|4 Comments

I hadn't thought of what motivates my prayer life until I heard a sermon by Dawna De Silva called Praying from Power. I listened, riveted to my chair, taking in every word as though I was hearing for the first time. Each word carried weight, clarity, and authority. It demanded my full attention and required [...]

By | July 18th, 2017|Revelations and Encounters|9 Comments

The conversation took a turn again that night to a time in our lives I wish I could re-do. It was a time laced with mess, mistakes, and heartache. I know my side and heart - one with good intentions motivated by fear and negatively distorted by outside influence. It was a time which brought [...]

I’m Stuck in a Rut until God shows up

By | June 19th, 2017|Revelations and Encounters|15 Comments

I'm stuck in a rut again. The words "I'm stuck" continue to whirl around in my head as fast as a merry-go-round leading me nowhere. What do I write? What do I say? Do I have a message? In the process, I realize maybe I am trying to hard. Trying too hard to write something [...]

Don’t be perfect, be redeemed

By | May 30th, 2017|Revelations and Encounters|12 Comments

Don't be perfect, be redeemed? This has been a word that Jesus has been gently massaging into my spirit. It's a pulling out of misconceptions and false views of myself and others. It requires that I let go of ideals and take a deeper look at what perfect really means. Perfect. A state of being [...]

Attributes of a good father? God is a good father? These questions often feature in our minds for a variety of reasons at different times in our lives. Often, we project our view of our earthly dad onto God as a Father thinking that he will treat us in the same way. The impact on [...]

How do I learn to trust God when trust is hard

By | February 27th, 2017|Faith, Revelations and Encounters, Spiritual Growth|4 Comments

How do I learn to trust God? This question regularly pops into my mind, especially when God asks me to trust him more. Synonymous with trusting God comes the necessity to let go (Read this post for more on trust and rest). Both of these are challenging to do yet vital in deepening our walk [...]

It starts in love – we were made to encounter Love Himself

By | February 6th, 2017|Faith, Revelations and Encounters|5 Comments

My eyes were gazing into eyes that held no judgment. I saw love, acceptance, and delight reflecting back at me. [...]
