In The Beginning: Journaling through John Chapter 1

IMG_1015

 

Welcome to our first week of Journaling through the Book of John: A Journey for Lent and Beyond ! The purpose of this journey is to linger longer in the presence of the Lord and not create a sprint through the Bible. We don’t want to minimize our relationship with the One who created everything … with a capital E – Everything – to a bullet on our task list, do we? When I look around at the state of the world today, I dare say many people have. I go further and say, I am in danger of doing this daily! When God becomes a bullet on our list of things to do, friend, I fear He has been removed from the place He desires in our hearts and relegated to an unrecognizable blur in our days.

Journeying with Jesus -Into the Wilderness and Beyond

These mornings I continue to journey through the Gospels along with others for Margaret Feinberg’s #LentChallenge and I am thankful for words on pages that come alive with Spirit and Truth. These words I read are forever new as they are read,  if read with a heart that is willing, available…hungry for truth. This morning as I sat and tried to quell the voices and distractions assaulting my mind, a song came to me, and drew me into His presence and out of myself…because out of my SELF is where I need to be to hear Jesus. The song? It’s called Fill My Cup, Lord, and I was introduced to it by a lovely woman of the Word named Connie, many years ago. She gave it to me on a CD she had made with her voice and spirit singing, and it remains a part of my brain’s hard drive to this day.  When I hear it in my mind, it’s always her voice ministering grace and truth to me.

“Fill my cup, Lord-I lift it up, Lord

Come and quench this thirsting of my soul,

Bread of Heaven,  feed me till I want no more

Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole. “

Desperate Times Call for Desperate…

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

 

How would you finish the sentence?

Desperate times call for desperate…actions? Measures, people, phone calls? What would you answer?

I challenge you to consider this reality and ask yourself where your trust is.

Desperate times call for desperate prayer, first.

Prayer is not a business transaction. We do not give something to get something in return. It is relational intimacy. In prayer, at our point of greatest need, we can encounter God and receive His presence. ~ James Banks

The past couple of weeks have been challenging around this here neck of the woods…er, um…seashore. This little fish here has struggled to swim in some big, wide, previously undiscovered, very scary open water.  Isn’t it just like the enemy to come stealthily into our terrain and try to steal away our new  beautiful, God-given territory?

70 Days and Pressing On (Whispers of Hope Week 10)

70

Friends, this past Friday was the 7oth day of our journey of prayer together using the Beth Moore Whispers of Hope devotional.

I believe these 10 weeks leading up to Easter could not have been better spent than in strengthening my own prayer life and intimacy with the Lord.

It was my one desire at the onset. I am still amazed and processing how blessed it feels to have followed through on this commitment to God and to you! Thank you so much for journeying and keeping me accountable, touching base and praying for me.
