All It Takes


There were times in my life when I desperately called upon the Holy Spirit to be my comfort and strength. He never failed me and He will never fail you. All it takes is to ask. Happy Sunday.

Healing Words


Having been ill for a couple of weeks, I have received many words of prayer, encouragement, upliftment, inspiration, and just plain love.

Among the many that came my way are these: “I was so surprised and sorry to hear how ill you are. You know we are all praying for you to be completely well. I never realized how much I would miss not seeing or hearing from you.”

Healing words from a caring friend on my road to recovery…God’s love in action. “‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:40 Happy Sunday.

Fear No Evil


There was a recent incident in my life which could have caused me fear and the need for protection. I felt neither. Instead, I made a conscious decision to support the person involved and later prayed for confirmation that the right decision had been made. Within minutes a flock of five blue jays appeared in my yard. That seemed strange because I rarely see a blue jay. I googled that bird and read:

This bird may symbolize protection and fearlessness. If blue jays appear in your life you will feel safe and protected.

Confirmation received with thanks. Happy Sunday.

It’s About Faith


My life is lived by faith…not blind faith, but supernatural faith. It works for me. Faith means much to many people and means nothing to others.

There are many examples of faith throughout the Bible and chapter one of Hebrews is a great example.

This came to me from the book, Hinds’ Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard:

“Faith has nothing to do with intellectual belief. Faith is obedience. Faith and abandonment to God’s will and power are inseparable. Faith is willingness to do God’s will. Unwillingness to abandon one’s own will and to obey God is unbelief.”

Because I believe, my life is lived by faith.

Happy Sunday.

Who You Are


The following is taken from Charles Stanley’s book, Relying on the Holy Spirit:

God knows who you are. He knows who He created you to be and which natural gifts, talents, abilities, and personality traits He put into your life. He knows which motivational gift is best suited to you. 

God knows how to place us within a body of people to accomplish His ministry. He will open doors of opportunity for you to minister in a way that is suited to your natural gifts. Be open to how and when the Holy Spirit chooses to use you.

This is sound advice for those asking the question, “Who am I and why am I here?” Happy Sunday.

He Lives!


He lives!

We survived the last supper, the crucifixion, the waiting period, and it is here…the day of resurrection…Easter Sunday!

It has been said before and is worth repeating:

It is not that Jesus lived and died but that He died and lives! Happy Easter.
