Are you worried? Scared?

This will challenge all your inclinations to worry:

"Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength."

Corrie ten Boom
(She was a great Christian whose family helped many Jews escape the holocaust. Her quotes are profound and cut cut through logic, natural wisdom into seep into your soul to illuminate God's divine wisdom and promises.)

Be blessed and trust God with the future, Godsy Girl.

When you are stressed - Bible Verses

Stress is birthed when we don't trust God fully with what we pray for, hope for or ask.  Sometimes, we don't even pray.  We just assume the role of "handler" and go through each day bearing life's burdens- managing life's demands as part of our ever growing "to do" list.

We all know we deserve nothing from God.  I'm  so tired of the weak theology (rooted in carnal insecurity)

Deacons' Wives Duties

If you're a deacon's wife, I'll be you have.

If you are in charge of training deacon's wives, I'll bet you have!

A sister in Christ (wonderful Kathy)  just gave me an awesome resource for deacon’s wives. I read through it and figured it is a "must" for just about every deacon’s wife. It offers practical information, guidance and advice on serving in ministry alongside your

Back to the basics

I read this quote today and it has clung to me:

"To rob God of nothing; to refuse Him nothing; to require of Him nothing; this is great perfection." Jeanne Guyon

Yesterday, I met with a sister I love.  I asked her as I often ask those I care about, "what is God saying to you in this season?"  She made me answer first. I shared that God is calling me back to the basics of my spiritual walk.  Before the stuff, before the distractions [were allowed to be distractions] and before the "noise" of my current life season. He's beckoning me back.

In the end all that matters is our relationship to Jesus Christ.  Nothing else really matters, ya know?  My prayer requests don't matter,  my personal "little" ambitions are of little significance.  My earthly positions are trash in comparison to the love, fellowship and will of my Savior.

The basics....just He and I.  Like worship with no music.

Now, that's perfection.

Move into your new season!

Wrong life seasons just don't fit.
Have you ever try to fit into a pair of jeans that no longer fit? It's one of the most frustrating experiences.

Just think of it, something that was once cozy, comfortable and even cute no longer working for you. You know, it just doesn't make sense.  The jeans used to fit, but now they cause you discomfort and angst – both physically and emotionally. Ugh!

The same is true in our natural and spiritual lives. Something that once was comfortable and commonplace can morph into something that generates unease, discomfort and, even sadness. Your “something” could be a relationship

Check out this verse on

Isaiah 43:1, 2 NIV

"But now, this is what the Lord says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze."

Bye, Bye Facebook

I love Facebook! It offers a wonderful opportunity to connect with friends, see what's new in their lives and offer encouragement when they need it.

Well, after one of my usual visits, I felt the "inclination" to take a break from my favorite social media outlet.  The inclination was actually from that still, small voice of which I am very familiar.  That voice deep in my spirit.

Our church just came out of a season of consecration and revival. During the season of fasting, I heard God's voice so much clearer than I had in days prior.  Without the dulling sound of television, radio and the noise of everyday life, the Father's directives were clear as crystal.  His Words jumped from pages of the Bible and I was much more connected than I am in my usual, run-of the-mill daily busyness.

So, when I felt the inclination to discontinue my personal Facebook for a while, I know He was at the heart of the urge and I am committed to obedience.

Now, is Facebook bad?  No, of course not. I think this is more about obedience than it is about Facebook.  So for now, farewell, FB friends.  I would say I am going to miss you, but I think my time will be spent in a way that will render me a much better "friend" to you in real life.

So, bye, bye...or should I say "baaaa baaaaa"?  Sorry, I couldn't resist.:)
