Distraction from God isn’t always (sin)….

Anytime I hear the word distraction; for me, comes with an angry connotation. I have this memory, I hold close to my heart of two of my spiritual mothers praying with me when I was a babe in Christ. One of the biggest things they talked about and prayed over me was to be aware…

I Do…. <3

When I was 11 years old I remember looking through an album of my parents Holy Matrimony; this ceremony is where a man and woman become one before God. The album starts with my mother, a young bride being escorted down the aisle by my grandfather who’s face was wet with tears, the details embroidered…

Just knowing..

Like a dream, on my knees at the altar of a church my eyes carved circles in the carpet as tears poured from my eyes; it was that moment when I came to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. It wasn’t like I had never heard the name Jesus; after all I was baptized as…

When it’s all said and done….

For the last 5 years that I have walked with Jesus, I have journeyed many different stages, In the beginning I walked in total awe and total fear of the unknown. After a while I learned to walk in joy and faith. As I walked with Him, He, as the lamp to my feet directed…

Arise

My transfiguration process in Christ has blown me away! I remember being new to church and while sitting in the services watching my pastor walk back and forth on the stage, up and down the isles preaching that once we surrendered our heart fully to Jesus the possibilities were endless…I remember sitting there thinking “that…

Tree’s

One morning I was driving to work in the fog, it was the kind of fog that seems to be resting on the road instead of in the sky; here I was alone on a highway and because the fog was resting low I was able to see the road several miles ahead of me,…

The shadow of His wings

There were these days as I stepped into faith…… I had just encountered GOD and the only direction my feet were pointed to were towards Him…… I found myself not ever wanting to look back, not ever wanting to take a glance at what was behind “lest I turn into a pillar of salt” (Gen…

The Watchman

In ancient times watchman would use a watchtower to warn people of approaching danger. God said to the prophet Ezekiel, “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from my mouth, and give them warning from Me” Ezekiel 3:17 This watchman was responsible for protecting…

A Holy Mess

I remember not being able to sleep the night that I surrendered my life to Jesus and the (many) nights that followed; I was in this state of awe & wonder.After I’d been seeing through (new) eyes for a while: I had this surge rise up within me like I needed to tell the world…

“Behind The Scene”

You know as well as I, how discouraging it can seem when you cannot see things working out in your favor and people who love you try to comfort you by saying things like; “it will be okay” “don’t worry, ” it will all work out”, “just have faith” etc.…. I personally have always had…

Still, Small Voice

Every now and then if you are able to catch the prompting of the Holy Spirit, and are obedient; you can experience a miracle. For example: For months now I have been praying for someone whom the Lord placed on my heart. I do not know this person well at all, so you can imagine…

First Love 

May 9th 2012: Journal Entry: I pray father that when I speak tomorrow night at church; that I am just led by your Holy Spirit and only your Spirit! I pray that you keep me in a small and lowly place! I thank you for the gift of compassion for others. I thank you for…
