Do You Have Fear?

Uncategorized

 

I remember a time in my early twenties, when my canoe tipped over in a raging river.

My canoeing buddy and I became stranded on an island, out in the middle of no where.

How to get off?

 If we didn't want to be living there the rest of our lives, or get rescued by a helicopter, we had no choice but to face the angry river again.

I fought off paralyzing fear. Heart pounding, I pushed...

Storms and Sleeping, What Gives?

Uncategorized

There is a passage of scripture that states "Jesus slept in the boat." You can find it in Matt. 8:24.

Whenever I look at that scripture, I think about my experiences in rocky storm tossed waters and sleeping in a boat during a major storm just doesn't compute!

Then I look at the Corona virus storm that is circling the globe currently, creating  hording, panic and a lot of out right...

What Would Happen If A Baby Determined Their Future Based On Their Past?

What would happen if a baby determined their future based on their past? Would they ever walk or would they see themselves as limited to crawling?

It is crazy to think a baby would do that but to often we as adults look at our past experiences or even current circumstances and let that dictate our identity and how we walk through life. 

What gives?

Then it only gets worse when we let other...

10 Ways to Self Nurture: Sanity Saver

Uncategorized
 

Self care is critical to my emotional well being. I learned this the hard way many decades ago, as crash and burn wasn’t fun to recover from.

I had to realize that self care wasn’t being selfish. It was my sanity saver.

The same for me today. As one who pours out regularly to many, keeping my emotional tank filled is critical, especially if I want to be able to have something to...

Hidden Women of Valor

I found myself weeping as I listened to an incredible teaching by Norma Savaris regarding the “Hidden Women of Valor.” This was not only because I was convicted that I had minimized who I was in God’s eyes but because God was clearly speaking, redefining my identity to that as one who was a woman of valor. (To listen to her teaching go to www.GloryofZion.com before Jan 5/20 it...

Which Tiger Will You Feed?

One of the biggest lies about God that I have been working on for what feels like eternity; is that God won’t be there for me especially when my back is up against a wall. My feelings scream “God won’t help me. I will have to do it myself.” The bible says otherwise.

Depending on who has the loudest voice that day, is the voice that wins; sad to say it is often my...

3 Women Journey

Uncategorized

Three women started out on a journey together. Life had been hard and had dealt them all a death blow; having all lost spouses. This commonality was not enough to keep them on the pathway of life together.

When given an invitation to turn back to the familiar, the first turned back and was never heard from again. Two continued on, the younger refusing to leave, partnering instead with the older...

Jail Break Time!

Uncategorized

If you are not going full steam ahead, what is stopping you from doing so? In this blog I talk about my process but I only do this to give you some ideas as to what might be hindering you.

For many decades I use to be stopped from going forward by my inability to receive help. I was taught not to take gifts “handouts” from others, but only to be the one extending a helping hand. I...

Growing Up In A Chicken Coop

Stop walking around like an apology. See yourself as God sees you. Drop the old image that you are totally worthless and will never make it; that life is too hard and you will never break out of the rut.

God is showing me a super hero outfit underneath your ordinary garb. You are a mighty warrior! See yourself as one. Come into agreement with God’s truth.  Let go of your current...

Closing the Gap Between You and God

Uncategorized

Many people wonder why God feels so distant. The short answer: there is an emotional disconnect at the heart level. When you were a child things happened and relationally you shut down in self protection mode both vertically (God) and horizontally (people.) This same self defense mechanism, unless healed, then followed you into adulthood.  

 Lies such as “the world...
