Ode To Tears

You’ve kept track of all my wandering and my weeping. You’ve stored my many tears in your bottle—not one will be lost. For they are all recorded in your book of remembrance. Psalm 56: 8 TPT I used to dread and often sigh At eyes that never would stay dry! My friends would say, eyes…

Fields To Sow

Those who walk the fields to sow, casting their seed in tears,    will one day tread those same long rows, amazed by what’s appeared. Psalm 126: 5 The Voice As the Church, and followers of Jesus Christ, we have fields to sow! It is time to get busy in spreading this Gospel message–for there has never…

No More Excuses

“For the people shall walk after the Lord. I shall roar as a lion at their enemies and my people shall return trembling from the west. Like a flock of birds, they will come from Egypt—like doves flying from Assyria. And I will bring them home again; it is a promise from the Lord.” Hosea…

Love In Motion

There is something amazing that happens in a heart when love goes into motion. Joy begins to bubble up and overflow everywhere you go! (I speak that from recent experience.)

God Wants To Use You!

Yes, He does! You are the joyful one “chosen” to take the light of His Gospel out into this broken world. Do you know how rare joy is? It’s one of the most endangered things on this planet! (And, it’s getting harder and harder to find.) Yet, we have The Source residing in our hearts.…
