Gratitude is a deeper, personal appreciation for receiving an act of kindness from another. When gratitude is given, the soul of the giver and receiver are graced with God’s presence and blessing.

Nothing But Net
Friends, co-workers, bosses, acquaintances, jobs and all other circumstances will let you down at some point in life. Sad, but true. Jesus is in the business of eternal reliability.

Do you ever feel like talking to God is like talking to a brick wall? You don’t hear a response or see a change? Here’s the thing. There are no brick walls, at all; no bricks in sight.

We need a day of rest to replenish ourselves physically and spiritually. We are not created to work 24/7, 365. We are created to rest on day 6 and have a deeper encounter with Him on day 7.

A Whole New World
It’s exciting and nerve-racking to explore something new. You can open yourself up to a whole new world you never expected or thought was possible. With each new understanding of who Christ is, a whole new world is revealed.

Light Bulb Moment #364
In my quiet times with Jesus, I’m learning more and more about who He is, who He is to me and how He lives in me. Love is a state of being. Love is a glimpse of the realm of God, of the realm of who He created us to be.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Do you look in the mirror and wonder who is looking back at you. Have you walked away from the mirror forgetting the person you just saw? Next time you look in the mirror, smile. Smile knowing Jesus is looking back at you and loves you.

What is your default setting? How does it affect your heart and mind? How earnestly do you desire to live out the heart of Christ and to think like He thinks?

Something Old. Something New.
“Why not?” seems to be the motto for people who thrive on trying new things. Try something at least once. Right?? I have more joy, excitement and pleasure when experiencing something new that was unplanned. Most times fear and anxiety hold us back from doing something new that we hadn’t thought of before. Try something new today.

You are never alone in the valley. He is right there with you, holding your hand to help balance your next step. Take a minute and look up and see His beauty that surrounds you and be overcome by His peace.

How often do we desire to perch on God’s knee and seek His shelter? I don’t have to be cautious or fearful when approaching. We can have full confidence and take a leap of faith and land on His knee. I want to share in His vibes. I want to hang out and get to know Him more.

Have you had someone back you up and tell others to wait a minute, you need to listen up. What he or she has to say, you need to hear. No matter your age, your thoughts and opinions matter.

Hide & Seek
Do you ever feel like you are playing Hide and Seek with Jesus? Seeking Him out and He’s right in front of you and you can’t see Him? Or you’re wandering around aimlessly trying to find Him, when He has been and always will be right inside of you?

Can't Find My Keys!
His plans for us truly are for good and gives us hope and a future. It’s not said to appease our wandering hearts and minds. It’s said to give us singular focus to look for Him wholeheartedly for the goodness we receive when we find Him.

Living Stone Part 2
As living stones for Christ, building up the body of Christ, we too are chosen and placed with purpose. We were not haphazardly created and thrown willy nilly to fend for ourselves. God knows where He has already placed His people, knows who He needs where currently and sees where He is going to place us in the future.

The church is not the building at all. WE are the church. His children, beloved, believers, brothers and sisters in Christ. We no longer have to go to a designated building to encounter God. We have Him in us, with us all time. We are His temple in motion.
June 10, 2021
We need to allow ourselves to go away to a quiet place. We also need to learn how to have the mindset of being in His stillness in the midst of the daily grind. Too many times I vear off with my mind going a mile a minute as He patiently walks beside me waiting for me to turn to Him and revel in His presence and be still.
