The weight of the Lord’s sacrifice does not escape me. I feel it now as I
sit here. He gave everything for us, for me, people He did not yet know but
already loved, loved enough to hand over the most important thing in not only
the world, but in all the universes and all the worlds, in all the ages and all
When Adam and Eve fell, God watched the fall from Heaven, His heart falling
alongside them. How could they do it, He probably wondered. I
created them to be above all, yet they desired to be beneath. They want the
world more than they want me. In a moment, He made a plan, for there only
was one way to get humanity out of the problem they created for themselves.

It’s been several weeks since I’ve written anything, but this morning I felt inspired to finally pull out my laptop and write what God has placed on my heart.
While praying for the Remnant I saw a camp with soldiers resting throughout. Some were sitting up, others were laying down, but it was clear everyone within the camp was recovering from an exhausting battle.
I then saw a Captain begin to walk throughout the camp and tell the soldiers that the time of recuperation was about to end and they were going to be sent back into the fight, for the battle was still raging not far away.
I then thought of Joshua. Right in the beginning of the book God tells Joshua,

“My servant Moses is dead; now, therefore, arise.” -Joshua 1:2
Lately, hearing the Lord’s voice and seeing His plan has become every increasingly more difficult. There is a heavy blanket of weariness and sadness upon the Remnant, myself included. We have prayed, we have fasted, we have fought, we have stood, we are still standing, yet it seems our actions bore no fruit, as if the enemy won and the Lord’s children will disappear silently into the night.
While going to God with these feelings and concerns a single thought pierced through the chaos which has lately become my mind: God is good.
We, as Christians, all know these words and repeat them with little thought of the power within them. But, when we are in the middle of the fire, walking through the waters, bombarded by the wind and the waves, surrounded by darkness and can’t see the light, we have to ask ourselves if we truly believe in the sincerity of those three simple words, if we, individually, honestly believe God Is Good.

Two years ago to the day I wrote the below post. It is just as inspiring and encouraging today as it was when it was originally written.
I hope it helps you today. Know the rain is coming.
The world shouts to the skies when it becomes desperate for rain. The world waits, never knowing when the waters will come, but knowing they must come.
The winds dance, the trees sway, the flowers bloom, the birds sing, the tides rise, all in reverence to their Maker, in obedience to His word.
If all of the world bows to His word, so will I.
If everything around me believes the sun will shine, the moon will rise, the rain will fall, then so shall I.

Recently, in my alone time with the Lord, I’ve been telling Him I am in need of prayer and encouragement. There have been several things on my heart I couldn’t quite talk about with other Christians, so these matters have been mulling around in my head and I found I could only put them into words while in the presence of God.
Have you ever been there? As if you have a whole list of prayer requests, yet you find yourself unable to bring them up with other believers?
Well, last Friday, the Lord took my list and went through them one by one, and all I had to do was sit on the couch and listen.

This time of quarantine has been difficult. I don’t believe there is a person in the world unimpacted by what is happening around the globe right now. Although it seems as if our world has been flipped upside down and our norms are now abnormal, I believe the greatest difficulty many are struggling with is the heaviness that accompanies depression.
The spirit of despair is wreaking havoc on our population. Men, women and children all around the globe are struggling with thoughts of uncertainty, pointlessness, sadness and, worst of all, suicide.
This spirit is a heavy and aggressive one. It creeps into your mind like a silent predator and over time becomes bigger and bigger, often getting to a point where the spirit is greater than the circumstance. Things that once seemed small become monsters in our minds. Issues that were manageable become uncontrollable and daily matters that accompany life are suddenly too heavy to carry.

Peace Be Still
Those are the words ringing in my ears.
As the waves crash around us, our Lord says Be Still
As the wind howls against us, our Lord says Be Still
As the rain beats upon us, our Lord says Be Still

Over the past several days I’ve been battling the things the devil is so clearly trying to attack humanity with.
Every time I coughed, he’d whisper, “uh oh, are you getting sick?”
If I sneezed, he’d say, “this is the beginning of the symptoms.”
If I was cold, he’d laugh, “maybe you should stay away from everyone.”
Although I am not fearful of this virus, I’ve been continually declaring healing verses over myself and constantly rebuking the enemy. Frankly, it’s been pretty exhausting.
Yesterday afternoon, I read Psalm 91. Although the entire Psalm is powerful, 9-10 heavily hit my spirit;

“because though hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; there shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.”
I belong to the King of kings and the Lord of lords
I belong to the Creator of life
I belong to the Maker of the universe
I belong to the One who spoke worlds into existence
I belong to the Designer who formed light by simply saying let it be
I belong to the Master of the masterpiece I live in
Continue reading “Who Do You Belong To?”
There are times in life when it seems as if the world is standing still and I’m no longer moving forward, as if everyone around me is living and I’m just existing, when every desire seems to remain unfulfilled and my prayers are going unheard.
In those moment, I must remind myself who my God is.
My God is the creator of the universe. He spoke the world into existence. He taught the sun how to shine, the wind how to sing and the trees how to dance.
My God formed man out of His own image because He believed man was worthy of being like Him, looking like Him, talking like Him, walking as He does and interacting as only His image could.
My God sees all things; therefore, He is never worried about the outcome because He knows how to get me to victory.
Continue reading “My God”
I pray for God to place me on a path that cannot be stopped, slowed or hindered in any way by the enemy. I pray I am one with Him, that when He speaks, I react, without hesitation or thought.
I pray I am so in love with the Lord that to live a single moment without Him is simply unfathomable, to wake up and not speak to Him is unheard of and to not dwell in His presence every single day is unacceptable.

There was a time in my life where everywhere I looked I only saw the chaos going on around me, in the physical and the spiritual. I came to the Lord and, while sitting in His silence, heard Him say;
“Close your eyes”

I don’t typically post words God gives me. Primarily because I desire to keep them just between God and I and anyone He specifically may mention, but also because I can sometimes go back and forth thinking, “is this me, or is this God?” which I believe is often a typical thought when receiving a declaration from the Lord.
I’m posting the below Word I received yesterday because it goes perfectly with what we are watching with the recent development of division within the Christian community. There is a shifting taking place, but a necessary one. It is time for the Remnant to be divided from the masses.
We are living in interesting times. I’m so thankful we serve the one and only King!

This morning, while in prayer, the word “aligning” heavily struck my Spirit.
I believe God is doing a mighty aligning for His people.
I saw paths that have seemed to lead nowhere coming together to end exactly where God intended them to be.
I saw people who have been downcast, frustrated, confused, sad, angry, depressed because of their current life’s circumstances, suddenly looking backward and saying, “it all makes sense now”.
Continue reading “Aligning”
I type a letter to the Lord, my fingers furiously flying over the keyboard: “Why, God? Why?” I write to Him.
Those words, the questions of why, I ask more than nearly any other. There are just so many things in my life I don’t understand, so many situations that make absolutely no sense to me at all. I’m in the middle of one right now, in this very moment even as I sit here and write these words.
While I frustratingly wrote to the Lord, a picture flashed through my mind: Joseph sitting in prison followed by the image of the Israelites walking through the desert. The Spirit then said to me:
“Everyone has their time in the desert. Many have to go through prison to fulfill their prophecies.” Continue reading “Desert, Prison, Promise”
