Stuck Against A Wall

I have a delightful memory of racing my brother around the bumper car track, feeling certain that if I could press the accelerator far enough I could push him into the wall and leave him behind in my smoke. It never failed that before I could reach him, out of nowhere, a car from behind would bump into me knocking me off course. There I would sit shoved into the wall as the other cars were buzzing laps around the track. I well remember being stuck in a corner as the fun raced past me round after round. I clinched the steering wheel when I spotted him coming toward me. The brother that I had longed to bump into the wall came straight toward me. In shocking amazement it was the very bump that

Show me Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and faithfulness and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You [You only and altogether] do I wait [expectantly] all the day long. -Psalms 25:4-5 Being a part of ministering to women is an incredible joy. I have the privilege of sharing coffee and conversation with women from many different walks of life. In a recent conversation, God spoke to both of us. We paused and began typing His words into our phones. The word kept coming and we giggled as He was revealing Himself to us in a glorious divine way. This life is a divine journey. Watch and Listen! We sat talking of our journey over the past several months.

Generation To Generation

She heard the heart behind my typed words. I want this ministry to outlive me. When I am gone, I pray that it will carry on. When we sat face to face, she poured encouragement into me. She confidently stated that the ministry I have poured my life into, would live on. “Martha, it is not just who you can see with your eyes. It is not just who passes through our ministry doors. As God’s word has impacted women’s lives, their children and grandchildren likewise have greatly benefitted. According to God’s word, it passes on from generation to generation.” Wow! What a privilege. What an incredible responsibility. I remember the Thanksgiving family gathering many years ago when Daddy, Mama and Bro

I Will Worship You

It was an especially difficult day with many uncomfortable moments. Another day to obey the Lord in the hard places. It is especially tough when your obedience is challenged. The temptation to back down, change your mind, and allow just this one thing presses hard against the will to obey God. Silently I told the Lord, “I love you more. I will not back down in what I know you have shown me. Use the difficult to sharpen me for you and your kingdom.” "Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life." (Proverbs 4:23) I put a fence around my heart by constantly praying and forgiving. I told the Lord, I would not let any offense, hurt or wrong attitude have a place in my heart. As I

Look At The Birds

The invitation from a friend to come for coffee was anticipated with great joy. During a previous brief visit, I had caught sight of her outside room and looked forward to returning and sitting with her. She is a gentle-spirited woman full of peace and quiet. The outdoor room portrayed her character. It was carefully planned with everything in place. Inviting seats were under the pergola surrounded by beautiful landscaping. Bird Feeders were strategically placed and obviously filled with the bird’s favorite seed. As we drank coffee and ate home-baked muffins, sweet conversation quickly began. It felt like a taste of heaven. Nothing else mattered for the moment. The cool breeze on this summer
