Identity Test

    For the longest time, I would say more than 2 years, I have been trapped in black. Now, let me explain. Because I did not have a conventional form of living as most people do, I had a very deep root of shame. I felt like I was less than the rest of the world.    So, I […]

Healing in the Wilderness

    A few years ago when the Lord took us on a “mobile” lifestyle, to trust Him as our only source of support, it was so incredibly hard. We started in the tiniest hotels and it was very difficult to squeeze everyone into a room. Each child had a bed and I had made myself a little place to […]

The Hope Stretch

    I am sitting here this morning in the posture of being stretched. The Lord told me that the provisions that I needed are hidden in the position of being stretched. So I have hope that in a little while, the promised relief will follow.    In this situation, to be stretched is holding a thought to a point […]

Love Rush

    I have not liked roller coasters since I was a child. I also don’t like watching action-adventure, crime, horror, or drama movies (and shows) because it stresses me out. I am more for the lazy-river rides and I prefer happy movies that indulge my inner child with faith and wonder.    I also do not like the present […]

Flooding Away the Toxins of Fear

    I spent many, many years in an abusive relationship. The manipulation and control were suffocating and it often left me unable to breathe normally. He would spend hours filling my head with lies and emotionally beating me down with all sorts of verbal abuse. I was trapped and somehow I convinced myself that I was in love, as […]

Pressing through a Promise

  It was only 4 hours before I was due to check out of our little hotel room. I had set my alarm clock extra early so that I could try to pray into my promise from God because I was desperate for a delivery.    The honest truth is that I didn’t even need my alarm clock that morning, […]

Stretching

  About 2 weeks ago we moved to where God showed us to go by faith to trust what He promised. He gave us enough to get started but He said that the rest of what we needed would show up after we moved.    For these two weeks, I have felt like I could not breathe because of the […]

Trusting the Steps

    The past few weeks have been insanely different and bursting with change. After over 3 years of the Lord giving us refuge from His promise in a hotel, He asked me to take His hand and trust Him with something entirely different.    I followed His instructions and He took us to a place that we pay for […]

Just to See You Smile

    Many, many years ago on the date February 10, I received a birthday card that played music. I cannot remember the words on the card, but the song that the card played was “Just to see you smile” by Tim Mcgraw. My heart melted with warmth and I felt so cozy inside. Somehow, I just knew that Father […]

Cut the Cord

    For the past week, I have not been myself. I would put on a “happy face” but secretly I was feeling terrible stress and sorrow. There was something that came up unexpectedly that took the wind out of my sails. It was something so deeply personal that I could not even share it. Instead, I went into a […]
