‘Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.’

I am strengthened by Vivian’s faith and trust in the Lord. God’s Word tells us, “… and after you have done everything, to stand.” I am standing with you, Vivian!

God's Whispers of Truth

Do you ever have times when you just feel defeated? You try this or that to only end up disappointed and disheartened? It happens to everyone.

I’ve been tasting the bitterness of disappointed hopes lately with my recovery. I’ve tried new tasks I think I can handle just to end up once again taking two steps back. These were simple things like climbing stairs, or household chores, things that used to come easily but are now difficult and frustrating, resulting in nausea and fatigue.

That’s the physical struggle, but then there’s the spiritual struggle which accompanies the physical struggle because we are all connected: soul, body, spirit.

In her book ‘Beauty Marks’, Linda Barrick explains the difference between our bodies, souls and spirits like this:

Body: physiological, sense awareness, sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch.

Soul: psychological, self-awareness, mind, will, emotions.

Spirit: Spiritual, God awareness, Conscience, faith, worship, dwelling place of…

What’s In YOUR Closet?

I spotted a girl in a strange looking outfit. (Kids have some crazy ideas about fashion in middle school.) From across the cafeteria, I tried to see what kind of shirt she was wearing, but couldn't make out the words. It was something I'd never seen before. I gazed out at the students as they… Continue reading What’s In YOUR Closet?

Am I An Annoying Distraction?

Did you know that if you're the most eloquent preacher/ speaker on the planet and thousands attend your conferences and buy your books, but you don't show God's love to people, God says you are an "annoying distraction".

6 Amazing Ideas for When You Don’t Know What to Write About

Just Bits and Pieces

Have you ever had one of those moments? A moment when you think, I’ve got a great topic to write about, and then as you start typing, it just feels flat?

That happened to me today. I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to write about but as I started typing it just felt all wrong.

In typical fashion, I sat and thought for a good long time about what else I could write about, but nothing was coming to me. I was Googling the heck out of the words November, Blog Topics, and Post Ideas, but nothing was striking my fancy, nothing!

Then I thought to myself I cannot be the only blogger on this planet that goes through this. Nor can I be the only one who wonders if there are others who go through this.

So I’m sure you’ll never guess what I’m going to…

Hope in front of me

God's Whispers of Truth

“God is the only one who can make the valley of trouble a doorof HOPE.” – CATHERINE MARSHALL


What exactly is hope? Here’s a biblical definition:

To trust in, wait for, look for, or desire something or someone; or to expect something beneficial in the future.

My hope is in the Lord. He alone can bring about healing for me. To trust in His sovereign timing means that I hope in Him, looking upon Him with expectant eyes of faith, as I patiently bear my current circumstances ordered by Him and ultimately fixed through Him.

Hope is contagious. When someone looses hope, it will have a domino effect on others. I’ve seen it. Yet, if a person stays hopeful it brushes off on others and in turn gives birth to more and more HOPE.

Over a year and a half ago, my doctor told me something that will…
