Look Up

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” -Luke 21:28 As I was driving to the office this week, I heard the call in my spirit to “Look Up”. I quickly glanced up and today’s scripture came into my thoughts. When I pulled into the parking lot, I sat gazing up into the sky pondering what it will be like when Jesus returns with a burst in the sky. I felt a sense of urgency to live that day with a looking up attitude. What does that mean? I didn’t listen for the trumpet sound, I didn’t sit staring into the sky all day, I didn’t sit paralyzed thinking this might be my last day. But an expectancy and urgency came over me

Standing Still In The Storm

“And suddenly a violent storm arose on the sea, so that the boat was being covered by the waves; but Jesus was sleeping. And the disciples went and woke Him, saying, “Lord, save us, we are going to die!” He said to them, “Why are you afraid, you men of little faith?” - Matthew 8:24-26 During the recent hurricane news reporting, I was fascinated how the ones reporting on site of the storm seemed to take delight in their opportunity to be in the midst of all the adverse weather conditions.

Teach my song to rise to You When temptation comes my way And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You Jesus, You’re my hope and stay. Often we are deceived into believing that this walk of faith just automatically happens. It doesn’t. We have need to train ourselves in the faith. My song of faith does not always arise. I must train it to rise up. Sometimes I need to set myself down in the chair and preach some truths to me. Train

Expand Your Territory

In obedience to God’s leading to take better care of my body, I began the weight loss and exercise journey this summer. It is amazing how quickly the pounds creep up and display themselves in the oddest ways. When I first started walking regularly, everything hurt as I panted my way back home wondering if I could climb the hill that stood in front of me. How embarrassed I would be if I had to call my husband to rescue me from less than a half-mile walk. As I continued to press on, each day became easier and I walked further. I noticed that after 2 months of regular walking, I wasn’t increasing my steps. This past Monday when I came to the end of my street, I felt a push to cross over the ma
