His Presence Overflowing… #hope

his presence overflowing“Didn’t our hearts feel strangely warm as He talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?

Luke 24:32

Oh, Heavenly Father, how beautiful You are…

 Seeking Your heart for my life, I l

lay down my will.

My agenda..

Seeking You, in the quietness of my  heart…

In the hidden places where no man can see,

I invite You to come in.

I lay down my heart, my hopes, and my desires..

I seek only to know You…

Father, How I thank You for the beauty of Your love.  For dying in place of the things that have cause my heart such pain…

For loving me way before I even knew You…

Your love has cleansed me, made me new.. filled my life with joy,  and covered my sorrow with gladness.

Your hope sought me out, captured me and changed me forever…

Who am I that You should love me… and You do!

May me life, my heart and the words of my mouth be beautiful to You…

Thank You for filling me with the warmest most amazing love…

The one true love we are all searching for…

The love of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit…

How I thank You for changing my life and filling me with such beauty…

You are my God…

I love You Jesus…

In Your Name, I pray…


Live in Love,


“O God, you are my God, earnestly I see you; my souls thirsts for You, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. 

I have seen You in the sanctuary and beheld Your power and Your glory.

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..”

Psalm 63:1-4

Holy Ground… #worshiptheking

holy groundThese words take my breath away.

 They grip my heart, and speak sweetly to my soul…

“Exalt the Lord our God..

Bow low before His feet, for He is holy!”

Psalm 99:5

I think it is because of the sheer power and majesty of who God is and where my place lays…

I don’t have to have all the answers.

You don’t have to have all the answers…

This powerful picture of bowing low before my God, humbles me beyond any description I can think of… It gives me comfort.  It gives me hope.

May you, too, sense God’s all mighty power in your life, and any situation you may be going through.

May we bow low before Him,

casting our worries, doubts and fears at His feet.

Knowing that when we bow to Him, we are kneeling on Holy ground, immersed in His majesty and covered by the blood of His love…

Live in Love,


“Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.  Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does not count against him and in whose spirit is in no deceit..”

Psalm 32: 1-2

A Wise Woman… #encourageoneanother

a wise womanI woke up this morning thinking about how easy it is to hurt someone with our words, carless gestures, or selfish desires…

How easily we can be self consumed and negative.

I sooo never want to underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, or the smallest act of caring…

 Each of these, sweet and selfless acts, has the ability to penetrate deeply into someone’s heart, and give them hope to carry on…

People matter.  You matter..

How we live each day matters…

Oh Lord, give us the strength to see beyond ourselves.  Fill my heart, my mind and my thoughts with the desires of Your heart…

Guide my steps, reminding me that today matters. Help me to be present, hopeful and helpful…

Please give me the wisdom

to live in the moment, not worried about tomorrow, or burdened with yesterday..

To know that my purpose in this world is to rock my world with love..

Lord, I depend on You for the courage and strength I need to live my life in the present…

Lord, You are my God, and I will follow You…

I give You my day, Father,

May I glorify you in all that I say and do…

In Jesus Name,


Live in Love

“A wise woman builds her house; a foolish woman tears hers down with her own hands.  Those who follow the right path fear the Lord; those who take the wrong path despise Him.”

Proverbs 14: 1-2


Angels watching over you… #hope

angles watching over me“If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your dwelling.

For He orders His angles to protect you wherever you go.  They will hold you with their hands to keep you from striking your foot on a stone..”

Psalm 91:9-12

How simply amazing is that?

Is the Lord your refuge?

Is the Most High your shelter?

Dear Heavenly Father, how I praise Your Holy Name.  Thank You for leading me into the light of Your hope.

The light of Your truths…

You are my refuge… and I am so very grateful to be a daughter of the King most high.

You are my shelter and my comfort in times of trouble..

When the storm seems to be brewing, and my heart is on fire.. You alone will rescue me… You alone are my Strong Tower..

You alone are my hope…

How truly glorious and beautiful You are.

“Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  This I declare of the Lord; He alone is my place of safety; He is my God, and I am trusting Him..”

Psalm 91:1

You are my place of safety… My Lord and my King and I am trusting in You…

In Jesus Name, I pray,


Live in Love,


“The Lord says “I will rescue those who love me.  I will protect those who trust in my name..”

Psalm 91:14

Fear Not… #foreverfaithful

fear not!Do the days seem to never end?

Do you find yourself thinking, “How did I get here..?”

Oh Dear Friend,

You are so loved…

God has reached down from heaven, chosen You.  Covered you.  Cleansed you from who you were..

Let His love break through…

“Fear not for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine. 

When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you; when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. 

For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior..”

Isaiah 40: 28-31

God’s plan for your life is bigger and more powerful than your mess ups, struggles and fears…

Put your life in His Almighty hands…

Submit to who He is..

Dear Heavenly Father, I know I have messed up.  My heart aches with pain for those who I have hurt.  I know I have not been living the way that Your love would have me too..

Please forgive me my sin.  Come into my heart and life…

I need You more than ever.

I lay my heart at Your feet.

Please, Oh Lord, shine on me..

Thank You for washing me clean… Please lead me in the way I should go.

I want to be better than this.

I trust in You, and You alone..

In Jesus name, I pray,


Live in Love,


Keep Moving forward.  Soaking in His goodness.

Truly letting God’s kindness and favor penetrate your mind and flow through your soul.

Turning from what was.

Looking straight ahead to what will be.

“For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to proper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future..”

Jeremiah 29:11

“Have mercy on me. O God, have mercy on me, for in You my soul takes refuge.  I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed..”

Psalm 57:1

Happy Good Friday… #trust #hope

Wishing you all the sweetest fragrance of His love…

Live in Love,


Killing Me Softly With His Song… #hope

killing me softly with his song

 Sometimes God’s guidance and hope in our lives can seem so distant.

So very quiet…

We may feel as if we missed our calling…or He has given up on us..

That couldn’t be further from the truth…

He didn’t redeem you, and set you on solid ground just to leave you…

He reached down from Heaven..

Choose you, and breathed His sweet song of hope in your heart…

He hasn’t let go.

Not for one minute. He loves you with abandonment, and fierce devotion.  He is growing you.

He is strengthening you.

Each day that I rise and shine, I need to ask myself…

 How do I want to live my life?

Can I do better than yesterday?

My heart cries, Abba Father, I want to live my life consecrated to You… Lost in Your mercy… filled with Your hope.

Yes, I can do better than yesterday.

I love You, Dear Lord, and thank You for Your power and majesty all around my life… thank You for filling me with hope.

Thank You for not letting me go back to the person I was.  You are pushing me forward, filling me with Your sweet songs of deliverance…

I need to be filled with more of You and way less of me.

In Jesus name, I pray…

Thank You for never letting go…


“You are my hiding place; You will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance..”

Psalm 32:7

“He reached down from high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters.  He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes who were too strong for me.  They confronted me in the day of my disaster but the Lord was my support.  He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me..”

Psalm 18:16-19

“Teach me Your ways, O Lord, that I may honor you.  With all my heart I will praise You, O Lord my God.  I will give glory to your name forever..”

Psalm 86:11-12
