The latest bloom is often the most anticipated bloom, the bloom we have been waiting so long for, praying and believing for. Sometimes, we wonder if the bloom will ever come, if all our hard work to protect the harvest was for nothing. We heat the harvest in the snow, cover it in the rain and shade it in the sun. We do everything we can to make sure our plants will eventually bud, but sometimes the hardest part is simply waiting for the blossom to bloom. Continue reading “Latest Bloom”
My Jesus is there for me when I walk in blindness.
My Jesus stands by me when I’m surrounded by nothing.
My Jesus speaks life over me when all I hear is silence.
“Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” -1 John 4:4
There is nothing too great for you, for inside of you is something so vast, so wonderful, the very earth itself worships at His feet. In you is power so overwhelming the very winds become still for Him. Around you is something so large the very mountains bow before Him. Continue reading “Greater Is He”
I will trust you, always.
I will trust you to do what you say you will do, regardless of what I see around me.
I will trust you to surround me with your favor, regardless of the storm I feel raging to my right and left.
I will trust you to speak to me, no matter how the silence presses in upon me.
I will trust you to fill me with your Word, regardless of how my stomach may be growling. Continue reading “Trust”
We are meant to be wild to the world, untamed and untouched by its greedy fingers.
We are meant to run free, with only the wind as our companion: no saddle, no stirrups, no whip.
We are meant to find joy in the independence of our run, the solitude of our time with the Sun, stars, trees and breeze.
There should be nothing in the world keeping us captive, tempting us to walk into submission to anything other than our Creator.
When God has you, there is nothing the devil can do to get you out of His hands. Continue reading “God Has You”
I do not fear what is ahead of me, no matter what it is, for I know who my God is.
My God is the God of miracles, breakthroughs and overflow
My God heals the sick and cleanses the lepers
My God speaks to the wind and the waves and commands them to be still
My God pulls the mountains out of the earth and digs the oceans into the deep Continue reading “Who My God Is”
There’s a ripple in the water, I know it.
It’s been so long since we’ve seen movement we’re hesitant to even believe it. We feel the shifting of the earth beneath our feet, the stale wind brushing our cheek, see the still trees slightly sway. We know the water is about to move, not because of what we feel, not because of what we see, but because of what we believe. Continue reading “Ripple In The Water”
So many, so many of your people are waiting for you. It’s like you have a group of people staring at stagnant water, praying and believing it’ll move. They are desperate for it to move, for the water has been still for so long it’s become moldy, bacteria has crept its way in. No matter what the group does, nothing can clean the water or make it move.
Your children feel like they’re going crazy staring at the water, begging it to move, praying for it to move, believing you’re going to step in to stir it, clean it out and restore what was once there.
We watch, and we wait. We wait. We wait. We wait and wait and wait but you don’t come. Every morning we tell ourselves that this day will be the day the water will move, when our God, our Father, will step in, but every night we go to bed discouraged and doing everything we can to encourage ourselves that tomorrow, not today, will be the day. Your people have done all they can, but the water still isn’t stirring.

God took me and covered me with his feathers, encapsulated me under his wings. He protected me as the winds rushed by, the rain poured down, the thunder shook the ground and the lightening lit the skies. He guarded me until the clouds started to part and the sun began to arise.
He told me it was time to come out, to stretch my legs and strengthen my spirit. He took my hand and pulled me up as the sun peaked over the mountain and poured rays of light upon us both. He smiled at me, encoring me to come out of my hiding place and trust His guiding steps, listen to His calming voice. Continue reading “God Took Me”
He pulled the mountain out of the dirt to stand before Him, tall and towering. He poured the oceans into the deep to roll in front of Him, loud and soothing. He taught the birds how to fly, to hum praises unto His Holy name. He orchestrated the singing of the trees and choreographed their sway. He spoke to the blossoms, encouraging them to come out of hiding and show the world their beauty. He made the Sun to shine upon His creation and the moon to glow upon the same. He spoke life into dead places and poured love into loveless depths. He made man His friend, the friend of a God, the God. He made women His children, children of a King, the King. He adopted them into His bloodline, sacrificing His one and only in order to make the adoption legal and everlasting. Continue reading “Always Has, Always Will”
“Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.” -Micah 7:8
When I fall, I will rise, over, and over, and over again. For, there will be times when I fall, when I feel weak and unable. There will be days when the sun rises and I may be unsure if I can do the same. There will be situations that weigh upon me, that push me down and make me doubt. There will be, for there always has been: but, when I fall, I will always rise. Continue reading “I Shall Arise”
