Prince of Peace…

fear not for I am with you Happy Friday to you!

I thought this was such a beautiful scripture.. It helps so much to take the focus off of the pressures of today and the thoughts of tomorrow..

” He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace..”

Isa. 9:6

Lord, thank You that You are our Counselor, you are Mighty;

You are my Everlasting Father.  You are my Prince of peace…

Praising Your precious Name…

Oh, Lord, how I praise You for your strength.. You are my rock.  Thank you for Your everlasting hope, and thank You for covering my thoughts with who You are… May my words, thoughts and deeds be pleasing to You, My Father, My redeemer, My strength and My friend….

I love You, Jesus,


Isa. 26:3-4  “You will keep in perfect  peace him whose mind is steadfast, because He trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal.”

Psalm 146:8  “.. The Lord lifts the burdens of those bent beneath their loads…”

2 Thessalonians 2:16  “May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by His grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope; encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.”

Live in Love,


For Freedom’s Sake…

 the truth shall set you free“The Lord is kind and merciful, slow to get angry, full of unfailing love. The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all of His creation..”

Psalm 145:8-9

Isn’t this a beautiful picture of God’s love?  I feel like so many of us are taught to fear God. To please God, and to obey God.  How harsh are those words to hear, when You don’t know God’s nature, or God’s love for us.

Dear Heavenly Father, how I pray for Your loving kindness to penetrate our hearts, minds and souls.  That before we walk out of our doors, and jump into our days, I pray we would let You; Your love,  into our hearts.. trusting that You have a plan for us, that You love us, and that You sent Jesus to die for our sins and injustices so that we may live, and walk in freedom; knowing that You are our King, our Father, and the lover of our soul.

Thank You, Heavenly Father for Your unconditional love.. What a priceless joy to know that you smile over us, cheer for us, and are our biggest fan.  You called us to know You, trust You, and all You want in return is our hearts…

How I love You, Jesus…

In Your Holy Name,


John 3:16-17  ” For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him..”

Can you imagine… He gave His one and only Son to us… His love is amazing!

Matthew 11:28-30  “Come to me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light..”

He is gentle, and humble in heart…

He is life giving…

Ephesian’s 2 4-10  “..   For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith; and not from yourselves, it is a the free gift of God not by works so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do..”

He loves you, sweet friend..

Live in Love,


Consumed by Your presence…

if god is for us” Bless the Lord, who is my rock.  He gives me strength… He is my loving ally and my fortress, my tower and safety, my deliver.  He stands before me as a shield and I take refuge in Him…”

Psalm 144: 1-2

Good Morning,

Dear Heavenly Father, As I come before You this day, I thank you for Your quiet strength and loving arms.  Thank you for drawing me into your presence, and giving peace to my heart.  You are my rock, my strength… my ally and my fortress.

My tower of safety and my deliver..

May my minutes, hours; and day be consumed by your presence, and filled with your love;  And may that love overflow and bless those who are looking for You and who need Your hope.

I love You..

In Jesus name


Romans 8:31    “..If God is for us, who can be against us..”

2 Samuel 22:36    “.. You give me your shield of victory; you stoop down to make me great. You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn..”

Live in Love,



everlasting” Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You; I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands, my soul will be satisfied…”

Psalm 63:3-5

Your love will shine when all else fades; everlasting…

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for another new day.  May Your love shine like the new morning sun as I seek to live a life of peace and hope; Not focused on the things of this world, but focused on Your amazing love for me.  It is a joy to let Your spirit set me free… little by little; day by day, more of You and less of me…

I love You,

In Jesus name


Consume me from the inside in out…

Have a Happy Day :)

John: 14-6

You are my God.  My Abba Father.  My comforter.  My refuge.  My strength… My redeemer, and My friend.

You, Oh, Lord are my hope..

Jesus died that we would be set free.. Free to love Him.  And free to live in Him.. under His loving wing of refuge..

Dear Jesus, I am so thankful for your loving care in my life… Thank you for Your truths that set my heart free.  I don’t have to be anyone, or anything, but Your child… One day at a time, one breath at a time… I am Yours, and I can trust that You go before me, behind me, and you hem me in… I lay down the struggles of the day… the people, the problems, and the solutions… May You care for all of these; as I focus on being in Your presence.. being consumed by Your great mercies..

How I love You

In Jesus’ name,

The long and winding road…

road less traveled 2When I am feeling anxious… agitated or uneasy.  The answer is always in God’s hope… Freedom lies in His care and compassion.  His way is the way of peace.. Not people pleasing, pushing, or trying to fix the unfixable… His way is the road less traveled.  The road that leads to the stillness of heart, and the quietness of thought.  His road is the road that leads to His presence…

Will you trust Him today?

Good Morning, Dear Heavenly Father… my day is in your hands; Your way is always the path of peace for my heart.  Your way soothes my soul and gives me the strength to truly live in love.  How I thank you for filling my heart, mind and soul with Your perspective and refreshing me with the goodness of who You are.. So gracious, good, and true.

Use me today, Dear Lord; may I draw other’s into your presence that they too will find their Hope in You, and not in the strife  of this world…

I love You!

In Jesus Holy Name..

Compassion and Protection…Love that!

doveAs I opened my sliding glass door this morning, to let my dog , Slayer, ( Nice name, right?! :)  Anyway, as I slid open the door to let him out to go potty, I couldn’t help but notice  a dove sitting on the back wall.. it was a strange place for him to be sitting.  He was perched on the wall, looking directly into our tree… As I got closer I saw her.  This new mama to be has her sweet little nest all tucked away in the branches of our sisso tree.   She’s beautiful, and so very vulnerable.

But ….

 there he was, her protector… watching over her!

“..I was overcome by trouble and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the Lord ; Oh Lord, save me.  The Lord is gracious and righteous. Our God is full of compassion.  The Lord protects the simple-hearted; when I was in great need He saved me..”

Psalm 116:3

Just like that sweet little daddy dove, our God is looking over us..

Watching, guiding and protecting.  You are that valuable to Him.

Dear, Heavenly Father, I really love You.  I pray for Your wisdom and strength to know You are always near… always watching over me; and always ready to reach down and grab my hand.. Thank You for Your loving protection, even when I don’t know You are there. Your compassion is always so refreshing. Help me to breathe a sigh of relief, as I enjoy this new day.. Loving others, embracing my life, and living in your wondrous hope.

You are so good..

I love You..

In Jesus’ precious name,


Psalm 18: 16-17   “He reached down from on High and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me…”

Psalm 18:27  “You save the humble, but  bring low the eyes of the haughty..”

Psalm 104:33 ” I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.  May my meditation be pleasing to Him..”

PS.. Can’t wait to meet her new little babies :)

Live in Love,

Lisa :)
