Love Waits

“Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So when He heard that Lazarus was ill, He stayed two days longer in the place where He was.” (John 11:5-6) Have you noticed that love doesn’t always look like you expected? As a child receiving punishment for bad behavior, I hated those words, “This hurts me more than it does you. I love you.” You love me? Then why are you spanking me and hurting me? Of course when I became the parent, I understood the pain of being the one to give the punishment. Parenting also gave understanding to withholding a greatly desired end result that was not the best for my children. I have read the story of Mary, Martha and Lazarus many times. Our key verses a

A Tap On The Shoulder

I was sitting in church intently listening when the preacher said, “There may come a time in your life when God taps you on the shoulder and how you respond to that tap will change your life forever.” As soon as the words came from his mouth, I felt a literal tap on my shoulder.

Hearing God Speak

I have come to love my morning walks with the Lord. It is not just a time to exercise, but to worship. The lyrics of the songs and the music cause me to walk a little quicker as my heart rejoices in the Lord. Last week I was on my last little stretch when my eyes caught sight of the most amazing spider web. It was huge and in its own way striking beauty. There in the center of it all sat a proud little spider. Assignment accomplished and now he enjoyed the rest. I reached for my phone to capture a photo when the Lord nudged me to pause and listen. He wanted to reveal to me something far greater than just the beauty of this intricate piece of heavenly art. I stepped a little closer with phone
