Hello Dear Faithful Friends and Followers,

It’s been awhile since I have written for this blog consistently. I remember the days of writing every single morning and sharing…it seems like a memory now. Part of this is my schedule is a little less roomy. Another part is I think I am like Peter looking at the water, instead of the Lord, and I don’t always see clearly. I see all the obstacles- the site that needs updating, the time to write, edit, revise a post, the sharing to Social Media, the critical voices within my own head  and without, all the steps and none of the joy I used to have when I was so excited to simply share what God had shown me as I went about my days and weeks.

All that to say…here I am.

A simple share on a blog that is woefully in need of updating from a girl in the smallest state sharing as she goes, this morning’s meanderings, slightly edited, moderately revised, but absolutely imperfect, because – after all…that ‘s how I roll most days.

Without further ado, from my journal and heart this morning…may it be a blessing to you.

How to Start the Day with Pen and Paper

IMG_0083

Today I want to walk you through a morning of journaling from the heart, to the heart of God. Are you ready?

You will need your journal, and a pen. You will need your Bible, and whatever reading plan you follow, or Scripture you are meditating on for today.

You may have a beverage, but usually my coffee grows cold as I set my pen to writing my heart to God.

An Update on Journaling with John and More

May I Have a Word?

It’s the Monday after Easter and I wonder how you, dear reader, friend, fellow sojourner- are doing? Have Easter celebrations left you inspired or do you feel a bit wrung out of faith in the season you find yourself?

Well, I hope you will be encouraged in the knowledge that, regardless of where you think you’re standing, Jesus is able to keep you in all of the seasons you pass through. Our faithful Lord will not leave you high and dry, nor will he hang you out to dry if your faith feels like a big giant fail! He loves you the same whether you’re smiling or full of sadness, whether you’re hopeful, or fearful. Rest in this truth and lean on Him, who is always faithful. Be strengthened in His faithfulness!

The Problem with Theology

“…Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’  The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”    John 3:7-8

 

I have a personal connection to Nicodemus and his story as told by John. As a matter of fact over time I have found I have a connection to many of the individuals who live in this great holy story told in Scripture. Do you realize as Believers we are all part of the testimony of grace started at the foundation of the world? Who can comprehend it?

Nicodemus was part of the spiritual elite of his day…

Where is Your Wine for Water Need?

Well, we’ve made it through another week of Journaling through the Book of John: A Journey for Lent and Beyond . We are not sprinting through, but instead we are lingering long, digging deep and reflecting on scripture- at this pace if you are just jumping in now, it would be easy to modify and “catch up”. Isn’t that a beautiful thing?

This week we’ve seen Jesus’ first miracle, stuff that makes God REALLY angry, and a Temple confrontation that leads to a bit of foreshadowing.
