OUT OF THE CHAOS 02.12.2021

Friends who help along the way with words that encourage or gently guide me are my inspiration for today. They are one of my 10,000 reasons to bless the Lord.

OUT OF THE CHAOS 02.10.2021

Monday was my birthday. It started well. I read the most amazing challenge to hear the inner name God gave me when my body was forming in my mother’s womb. I sat with my mother and drank coffee and talked about the day I was born. It was a great morning. Monday was also disappointing. …

While this song is quite lengthy – over twelve minutes – it is worth every moment. May God use this song to restore hope in your desert place! What phrase or description of God in the song meant the most to you? What do you relate to the most in these accounts of desperation from …

OUT OF THE CHAOS 1.13.2021

In my consideration this week of Hagar’s interaction with the One who sees her and my subsequent delve into how God sees his people, I came across this beautiful picture of how God’s care for his people. 10In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared …

6I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. 7Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes. 8Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in …
