The Wishing Machine

Today as I hold tight onto a prayer request, hoping that Jesus will push this one through, I am reminded and have confessed to; that God is not a wishing machine. We cannot go to Him when we have exhausted all earthly attempts at solving the issue. He must be our FIRST line of defense.Continue reading “The Wishing Machine”

Pieces of our heart

I’ve been in semi-regular contact with a dear friend I’ve never met. We attempt to talk a few times a month, catching up; and my favorite – praying together. We “met” through an online prayer request page. I told her this afternoon, that when summer comes, I’m driving out to her house with my swimsuitContinue reading “Pieces of our heart”

Psalm Pieces

I have always loved Psalm 42:1 As the deer pants for water, so I long for you, O God. What a beautiful, visual reminder of our love for God, how we strive to become closer to Him. Where do you go for spiritual guidance? I love to walk in nature, surrounded by trees, water, blue skiesContinue reading “Psalm Pieces”

Pieces of Moments

The title seems a bit improper.  Can you have pieces of moments?  Where I was going with this thought is, there are ordinary and extraordinary moments in our lives.  Where do we find joy?  Where does heartache go to heal?  What of the prayer requests we send out? Are they tucked in-between the life weContinue reading “Pieces of Moments”

Pieces of Friendship

Jesus was friends with many people and in our quest to be more like Him, we share our life with friends also. There are many variations of the bible; versions such as King James or the Living Bible, Good News, etc., but until today I had never heard of The Message.  I love how itContinue reading “Pieces of Friendship”

Pieces of Thanksgiving

Location pieces

You’ve heard it before: Location, location, location.  Where  your business is located, or your home, the school your children attend, walking distance from here to there — depends greatly on location. I have finally after 52 years, GOT THE LESSON!!!  It does not matter where you worship; it merely matters THAT YOU DO!!! Yesterday IContinue reading “Location pieces”
