Your Silent Cries Heard

About 3:47 this morning I was awaken by a woman’s screams. Then dogs started barking in another area and what was a scream sounded like a bark. It was not in the complex where I am but far off into the community. Many problems, was it a woman? Where can I tell police to go? I don’t know where she is. At home I could give them a possible street. I couldn’t here. So I laid awake waiting to hear, then she started again. To “stop” “get off” “get out.” Then I said okay, if I can hear from far away, surely the neighbors can hear and will call. As tears rolled down my cheeks, I did what I do best. I prayed that God send someone right then to ease her pain, to save her.  A few minutes later a heard one car, than two cars driving with authority, not just cruising, and the Lord said, “Done.”

In the new year I bless you that your silent cries are heard; that God eases your pain; that you recognize it is him, it has always been him. And that you hear, “done,” and you receive his peace. Blessings dear ones for peace.  Happy New Year! enough for now.

All is Well

All is well. Spend time with that simple statement. All is well. In spite of where you are, or what you may be going through- all is well. You see, that alone can slow you down and allow you to hear and get directions from Holy Spirit. You can hear and rest assured that really, in the grand scheme of life God has you and all in indeed well. Blessings of wellness. enough for now.

Go Back Another Way

Today we walk away from the event of the Christ birth, but we do not leave like we came. We must go back another way, take another route, act a different way. We cannot move as we once did. There should be something new in us/ with us- not from gifts; but from The Gift. Oh no, there is something different. How do you recognize? Get still, and listen to Holy Spirit.  He's a part of that Gift. Then as you listen, be refreshed, and recognize your change, your new route.

This is larger than resolutions you make on New Years Eve; because you make them, half thinking. but this- when you realize your change you walk differently, you act differently. Go back another way as you follow Holy Spirit's guide. enough for now.

Christmas Blessings

Merry Christmas! May the realness of the love of God for you be realized in such an awesome way today and going forward. Walk in his love today. Watch what God is doing. Wait for your kisses on the cheek letting you know you are special and loved. enough for now.

Cheer Up

Cheer up, life has more for you. Because of the Lord's love his mercies never fail. Do not despair. It is because of the richness of this season that you can celebrate your more. enough for now.

Feel the Love

It's all about the love. All about the love the father has for you, so much so that he sent his son so that you could live free. Free from the lies that you have been made to believe about yourself. Free from the lies you believe. And the celebration of that love manifested is in a few days.

Celebrate. Celebrate the expectancy of the season, the hope of fullness, the joy of your life, the love the father has for you. It's all about the love. Feel his love and pass it on. Someone else needs to feel it. Merry Christmas! Happy birthday Jesus! enough for now.

Joy Everywhere

As we mark this third week of Advent find your joy and peace in what God has for you. I have found joy in conversations with friends and family.  I look forward to what God has for the rest of this year. Merry Christmas! Love, and allow yourself to be loved. God has already set that in place by giving his only son. enough for now.

Go with It.

Changes are inevitable, that's life. The question in becomes, 'how well can we handle changes?' As things change we learn to go with it. So take time today and go with it. enough for now.

Sunday, December 10, 2017


In this advent there is a feeling if expectancy, of hope. What are you expecting? What do you need t see? Move away from the presents under a tree and expect his presence in your life because of the greatest gift. Stay with that. Ponder what it means to you. Hope. Wait. Watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Just Breezing Along

Just breezing along. Life is just breezing along if you allow Holy Spirit to guide. Oh my goodness! If we could recognize that alone, we would rest so much easier. There is so much in life for us- but we can't know where or how unless we are guided. Just as a baby learns to walk we learn to take baby steps, following Holy Spirit's guide. Go ahead- take baby steps, and you'll find yourself breezing alone with him. enough for now.

Give Thanks

Give thanks for everything, the good and the bad. We miss the thought hat all things work together for the good . . . Not all good things work.  You have so much to be thankful for- not just at thanksgiving bu everyday should be a day of thanksgiving.

Start right now. Make this the time that you try everyday to watch for your reasons to be thankful. Your day may look crummy; nevertheless, thank God for what it did't look like. You get the picture. And then by this time next year you will be a such a different place. I promise.

Blessings of joy and contentment on his day, in this season. enough for now.

Drop that Burden

We get so burdened down by some things that really are trivial. Why is that? We are so much more than that. We are stronger than that. Think about it. Many times, these small things are only there to through us off track of what we are to see, to hear, to do. But we are so bogged down with the trivial that we miss what is significant. And that itself becomes a large burden. Drop it.

Today, ask Holy Spirit for wisdom to see and hear what is real and what is not real. Do not try to work any of it out yourself. Get direction and then proceed. You are now shifting your focus off of your stuff and toward what is real. As you move, stay focused on your direction as prompted by Holy Spirit. And watch what God is doing. enough for now.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Shift Your Focus

Yes, things happen. Life will present itself as harsh, but you must shift your focus. Instead of focusing on the harsh, find the good. It may be small, but you can grow it by focusing on it. That is why the harsh seems so rough-because you focus too much on it. And it grows with your focus. Focus on the good, the peace in everything and watch it magnify. Shift your focus. And then give thanks in the small and feel your strength. enough for now.

Each New Day

Each new day is a gift; however we must approach it as a gift. To unwrap it slowly as the day unfolds with expectation that it will indeed surprise. Each new day holds so much promise. Wait on it- receive it - walk in it. enough for now.

In It to Win It

Let's be real, life can trip you out. First- you must remember who you are. When you know who you are, you will not answer to what others call you. Do not let another give you your identity. God has already done that.

Next, this is a journey with ups and downs. Don't focus on the short game, but hold on for the long game. Too many people are focused on the short game and try to get what they can while they can- from anybody and everybody. The sad part is they lose in the end. They miss what God has already placed in their path.

When you identify those focused on the short game, don't be surprised when they lie, cheat; that's what they do. Yes, you may need to work with them, you may have them closer to you than you wish; but you already know who they are. My mother used to say, "Feed them with a long handle spoon."

Yeah, life can trip you out, but don't stay out. Know who you are and remember that you are in it for the long game. "You are in it to win it." And our journeys are different. enough for now.

Stepping it Out

Wow, just stepping it out. Stepping because it has so many connotations. It could be walking it out step by step. Or moving in precision with others- to a prescribed rhythm. Or inching it out a little at a time. And each of these has a true meaning for- us. What are we stepping? Life - our life. The life that God has for us. We step it out in order to get clear guidance. We step it with others along the journey. We inch our way through dark places knowing we are not alone. We can indeed step it out "rejoicing always, praying continually, and giving thanks in all circumstances, for it is God's will for us"
(1 Thess. 5:16-18).

How do you step? What is your step like? Where are you right now? You are not alone. Step on. enough for now.

No Fear

Why do we procrastinate? Why do we put off what we need to do? Could it be fear? Fear of the outcome? What on earth could it be? Take time today to find out the answer. Find out what could hinder you from completing what you need to do. And then make a stand to complete. Go at, go resolving no fear. enough for now.

Saturday, October 21, 2017


Who do you go to? Who is it that you have to go to when you need to make sure you are on track- to keep you accountable? Yes, you need someone who can agree with you in prayer or snap you out of your pity party. You need someone.

Yesterday I texted my sister a long text about nothing. At the end I said just pray for me. She promptly texted back,"Lord help her." That was all. I read it and began laughing. I texted her that the pity party was over. Sometimes life will try to- usually to distract you. You need someone to agree with you. Someone that will listen and not condemn, will not give the way out, will only agree in prayer that change happens and now.

Who can you go to? Who will agree with you for breakthrough? Thank God for that person. enough for now.

Friday, October 20, 2017

Shake it Off

Shake it off. That is what we must do at times. Let me tell you about it. When people come at you the wrong way. . . when they lie . . . when they cheat . . .when you must be around them (you see there are times that you cannot rid yourself due to business or other). You must shake it off.

By doing so you are not releasing them but you are releasing the issue to God. Lament and let God take care of the situation. Yeah, I know you want to tell them off, show them who you are-but I promise-God can show them so much better. They don't know who they are dealing with- for real.
However, you must know. You must know who you are and whose you are, and keep on. Your trying to tell them about themselves, that's no good. They know who they are. A liar will be a liar, a cheat will be a cheat until they recognize Truth.

Your actions can point the way to Truth or you can join them in their mess. That's why you must shake it off. Shake it off and watch what God is doing. enough for now.

Another Year

This is the day of celebration of my journey. I have been contemplating this moment and thanking God for my ups and my downs. I have found that my challenges strengthened me for the journey. I am watching what the next years will bring-whatever the number. Enjoy each day that the Lord brings and grow in it. Thank you for another year Lord. enough for now.

Find Yourself, Find Your Pace

As I walked up the mountain I wondered, "Why is it so hard to pace ourselves?" "Why are we constantly trying to do like, act like, be like someone else?" Could it be that we have been trying so long to impress, to 'show', to represent, to people please that we don't know who we are? As a result, we don't know our pace for the journey. You know the way we will overcome hurdles, obstacles, hindrances and just plain journeying in general. We don't know our own rhythm for life so we can't appreciate what God is doing in out life; because we are trying to have another'e rhythm, another's pace.

Discover your pace and go with it. Discover who you are by examining whose you are. Rest in that, and then listen for directions from Holy Spirit. You see, you don't know the journey, Holy Spirit does. You know don't know you, God does. And your way has been made. Trust God so you can walk in it. No, you can't even trust self because 'self' doesn't know, 'self' has no clue of the journey.

This is an exciting time for you- if you allow it. You are discovering who you really are. It doesn't matter your age- what matters is that you do it. Find yourself, find your pace. Breathe- say yes to Jesus. Now watch what God is doing in your life.  enough for now.

No More False Goals

Too often we find ourselves moving toward what we have made as a goal; only to find out it was not in keeping with what God had for us. And we wonder why it is so difficult. Yes, life is difficult; but it does not need to be so treacherous all the time. It will be that when we do not hear clearly from Holy Spirit. There are things that you have been shown; yet you chose an different way. At any point when you recognize the correct way, get on course and allow yourself to walk in peace.

Your path, is set, walk in it. Recognize that you are not alone. No more false goals. enough for now.

Sunday, October 8, 2017

"It's too far," "I can't do it," "Who else is going?" How many time have you uttered these? Hmm. Our journey is our journey. It's good that we don't know how far; we don't know what lies ahead, we don't know who else is going or way. If we did, we probably would not want to go. But we do know who had already laid out the route, mapped our the journey, so we can follow. Let's try following, shall we? enough for now.

Saturday, October 7, 2017

Slow Your Roll

Too often we get in such a hurry that we miss what we are looking at- we miss it. We miss what we need to see while trying to see something else. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees. what on earth do we do at that point? Slow down and breathe. Slow down and hear. Slow down to watch what God is doing. Slow your roll. enough for down.

Friday, October 6, 2017

This is Your Journey

What is it about us that we feel the need to know that someone else is going the same way, doing the same thing, or in the same place? While we are to live and learn in community we travel this journal alone. Yes, there are those that travel with us for a season. When that season is done, it's done. When we are clear on our path, it really does not matter that someone close has another path to take. Our path is our path. Our journey is already mapped out, already secured; we must travel it. Enjoy your journey- the ups and the downs. And at all times, watch what God is doing. enough for now.

Pace Yourself

As I walked up the mountain I kept hearing pace yourself. Your pace is not like anyone else. So I slowed up in order to catch my breath. I realized that I was not trying to beat my own time but to pace someone else- so that I didn't look weak.  I was breathing hard and feeling embarrassed, after all I should have more stamina by now. As I came back down the mountain I realized that everyone had their own way of breathing to get up, of pacing themselves to get up, of sweating to get up. And I realized that my walk is my walk.

On this journey you must know that your pace is your pace. Don't try to match another. Don't try to act like another. Just be who you are. Go in your own pace. Listen to what God is doing. Enjoy your journey. enough for now.

Endure. Endure. No matter what. No matter how long. Hold on. Hang in there. There is a mountain where I live and I have been determined to walk the over 2 miles up. I was determined to walk a little more each day. On my third day a guy coming down laughingly told me to hang in there, just a few more miles. What? I paused, rested and turned back down, determined to do more tomorrow.

Later my driver took me on up so I could see how far. I showed him where I turned back. And then we rounded the curve where I stopped. I was outdone! The top was just two short hills away. Less than half a mile. He said, 'you were right there." The next day I went on up the mountain.

Endure, don't let anyone discourage you from your goals, your dreams. Endure, on this journey, you don't know the end but you do know the destination. You don't know who will journey with you but you do know who guides you. Endure, don't give up. Sometimes you must stop and rest and then carry on. This journey is not about speed, or about who you know; but about endurance, and whose you are. Hold on. Hang in there. enough for now.

Little Frustrations

Why do we get frustrated so easily? Could it be just a distraction to keep us from moving forward? Could it be? Quite possibly. I got frustrated when Blogger was not updated to run with my Ipad, so I didn't blog as much, as it would drop off. But I missed talking with you. See how easily we can become distracted? All I had to do was blog on my lap top. Wow.

 What about you? Where have you been distracted? Where have you let little frustrations turn you around? here is so much that God is doing in each of our lives and we miss it by becoming distracted. Pause and ask "Is it you Lord?" Then proceed, "Show me your way." Go ahead, watch what God is doing . . . and don't be distracted. enough for now.

Don't Forget to Say Thanks

"I come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses. And the voice I heard falling on my ear, the Son of God discloses. And he walks with me and he talks with me, and he tells me I am His own. And the joy we share, as we tarry there, none other has ever known." I grew up on that song and found myself singing it this morning. And thanking him for all he has done for me. I just started rattling off what I could.  Oh my goodness, the peace when we hang out with Jesus.

But then it brought me back to something else. Don't forget to say thanks. Yesterday I taught one of a few classes. And the lunch was bought and brought in for the adult students. I thanked the dean for the lunch. And I thought I missed it, so I checked with the dean later - no one else said thanks. Bur I was also surprised at the students complaining about the work they had to do. That is wrong on so many levels. You see, in this life, nothing is promised us, nothing should be taken for granted. People do not have to be kind. And - when you want something you work for it. It's what you do. So at any place, if someone does something for you- you just ought to say thanks.

You don't acknowledge kindness, you don't respect the process, authority? And then you wonder why the young people act as they do- they are getting it from you. And if you are acting liking this, how much less are you thanking God?  Can you see why that is a problem - preachers?

Don't forget to says thanks. Go ahead- take a 60 second 'thanks' break and thank God. Just let it roll, don;t out it in order, name as much as you can. . .  Pause and marvel at his many blessings to you, how he places, people in your life, how he holds you from danger- seen and unseen, how he points the way again and again (it's on you when you don't follow). How he _________________ you fill it in. And begin taking 60 second 'thanks' break during your day. See what does for you, your life, yor health. Don't forget to say thanks. enough for now.

So how are you doing in releasing your busyness? See, you are so busy that you have not tried to release. But you must release in order to experience a balance. Go ahead. Release- let go. And watch God. enough for now.

Busy, not Busy-ness

Ir has been a busy time. No it is always a busy time. The thing is to not let the business of the time take you, but you take the busy-ness out of the busy time. How can you do that? By relinquishing your control and allowing Holy Spirit to move you through what is necessary and when. Another thing I do is write down at the start of my day what I feel I need to accomplish. Then I turn it over to God and check off what is done.

Let's get started. What is left for you to accomplish today? Write it down and give it to God. And get started. No more busy-ness. enough for now.

Look Back and Realize

I am overjoyed and contemplative. Today is my only son's birthday. Happy Birthday Marq!  I am so excited at what God is doing in his life. I am blessed- so blessed. That caused me to be excited at what God is doing my life. Wow. You never know the journey- you don't need to know. You do need to know the Maker of the path, the paraclete who walks alongside, the one who loves you so much that he gave his life.  When you think about it- you begin to move into contemplative prayer and end with praise.

The song says, "When I look back over my life, and I think things over. I can truly say, that God has made a way. I've got a testimony." Go ahead, mark this day, you have a testimony. Thank him for all he's done this day, in your life, with your life. Need a little help?  He kept you so you could read this and realize the blessing of you, of your life. Thank God for it, for the up and the downs.  Yeah. enough for now.

Why am I Afraid?

The question to ponder is: "Why am I afraid to walk where he leads me?"  Go ahead ask your self . Don't answer right away. Just wait and let the Answer present it to you. The reason why? Because you will talk and you don't really know. 

That is a major problem with us anyway. When we don't know or are afraid of something we question it in so many ways. It makes us look like we know more than the whatever it is. We have solved the riddle. But we don't know. We cannot solve the mystery of God's love. We don't. We can't. But we can be thankful that we are counted as his Beloved.   

The crazy part is that it really is easier to follow than we think. It really is safer, more peaceful, more joyful to follow. We don't follow mindlessly, we follow knowingly, watching what God is doing. 

Spend time with the question. Write it down and as you hear answers - write them down also. blessings on this endeavor. enough for now.

Celebration of Life

A celebration of life. There is something about celebrating a life. And yes, it should be a celebration of a life well lived and loved. But there is another aspect- to celebrate your life as you live it. To walk knowing that you are walking and hearing direction. Celebrate your life - it is a gift to be explored each new day. Then you can recognize the love around you from kindred hearts, the guidance from Holy Spirit, the peace that only God brings.  Celebrate life- your life! enough for now.

The Quiet

Hmm. I marveled again at the quiet. No, not necessary the quiet around me from people. No, not the quiet from traffic. Not even the quiet from background noises. But the quiet in my life. The rest from trying to think it all out. The peace from just being. That really is what we are to do as believers- just be. You see, in the 'being' God molds us and shapes us into more of who we really are.  Today, work toward the 'being', allow your self to get quiet and listen; to get quiet and watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Thursday, July 27, 2017

Get Quiet

Today I marveled at the quiet. I listen to the birds - but I heard the quiet. I heard the cars- yet I heard the quiet. And in the quiet I found my peace.

Where can you find your peace? You can't make it. You can't make it happen. I do suggest that you first get quiet and wait. Get quiet and watch what God is doing. enough for now.

Change Your Way

Each day presents its own set of challenges. Yet, each day present its own set of possibilities.How do you view the day? Do you arise counting the things you must face or do? Or do you arise watching the glory- the beauty of the day?  Are you giving thanks for the new day? It's all how you arise. Change your way of getting up in the morning and watch what God is doing.  enough for now.

Waiting . . . waiting on . . . waiting  for . . . waiting. We spend so much time waiting for someone, waiting on something. We spend so much precious time waiting for the wrong things. Many times what we are waiting on- disappoints.

Too often we find ourselves in so much turmoil trying to play catch up from lost 'waiting' time.
I have recognized to shift my priorities from all of that to waiting on God. Waiting on - in serving. Waiting for Holy Spirit's instructions. And I have found that the peace from waiting on God - wow, you can't beat it.

It's that statement that we hear so much - "What God has for you is for you." It is, and you can't bring it to you, neither can another. I encourage you to watch what God id doing in your life, and wait on God. enough for now.

Thursday, July 20, 2017


There is safety when traveling in numbers. There is peace when traveling with Holy Spirit. Now we know as our paraclete Holy Spirit guides us. The peace comes with listening and resting on the journey. Listen today. Watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Count the Times

How many times do we keep asking the same thing and hoping that the answer will change? We used to do that when we were little. We kept asking until out teacher gave in. I say teacher because my parents weren't having it. No meant no. What about doing the same thing the same way- and expecting a different outcome?

Oh count the times. Yes we have been there, but there is hope from that rut, that pattern that we have gotten stuck in. It's called listening - listening to guidance- and the trusting that God's answer is the best for your life. Go ahead. This time trust and watch and wait. enough for now.

Friday, July 7, 2017

You will

Keep walking. Keep going. Don't worry about set backs or failures. You see, the race is not given to the swift but to the one that endures to the end. Keep going. Things will indeed change. You will walk out of your place of pain, you will not walk alone because Holy Spirit is walking with you. You will survive. You will make it. You will. enough for now.

So Much More

I am celebrating independence in a foreign land. Foreign only because there is so much still to learn. Celebrating because my independence did not come as celebrated on the fourth of July, but because it came through the shed blood of Jesus. And that right there gives me reason to want to walk more in that independence means - celebrating my full dependence on Jesus. Kinds cool isn't it?

Celebrate your life. Celebrate the love that God has for you. Live today loving your life. There is so much more. You must be willing to receive. There is so much more. So much more. enough for now.

Monday, July 3, 2017

Sometimes it takes a Shifting

Sometimes it takes a new way of looking at an old situation. You know, that is how you handled it the past. But the past is the past and actually should be a part of how you build. You may need a new perspective, even a shifting of priorities. Whoooo. Scary isn't t? It is scarier when you think you have all the answers.

Sometimes you need to hear a different view, even when you think you are correct. You don't know everything and you can't be everything to everyone. It takes a shifting. Begin shifting from what you know, and watch what God is showing that you don't know. Sometimes it takes a shifting. Are you ready? enough for now.

Yes, You Can

Hurdles are meant to jump over, go around, and yes they are doable. Sometimes we get caught up worried about how to overcome the obstacle- whether we go around, go over, go through, or even go another way. You see- there is always another way. It's the way you could not think of- that's why we need Holy Spirit's guidance to direct us.

Yes you can, yes you will. You are more than a conqueror through him who strengthens you. Hold on to that and face each obstacle with a new resolve. Watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Toward Beauty

It is sad that you have people with ugly ways everywhere- especially in the church. But you see, the church is where they should be- to receive healing. So don't look at them strange- but pray for them. The funny part is- they may be praying for you and your ugly ways.

Which ugly way did Holy Spirit reveal to you? Now that you are aware of it don't try to get away from it but walk with Holy Spirit toward the beauty. You see, we spend too much time and energy trying to get away from something instead of walking toward the good-the peaceful-the positive. Can you see it?

Get focused and keep moving toward beauty. Watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Keep on Walking

Walking out of ugly. Sounds good, doesn't it? Keep on walking, and watching what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Monday, June 26, 2017

No More Ugly

Why is it so hard to look at our own faults? It must be hard because we are too quick to recognize the faults of others. Why is that? Haven't you noticed?  "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother/sister's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?" (Luke 6:41 NIV)

Ok, that is our next move. The next time you roll your eyes, or put down another, or not speak when you enter a room, ask yourself why? What is the trigger that affects your own wounding? Many times -it is a worth wound. Your self worth may have suffered and it can manifest in so many ways.

I just remembered something. When I was young I said someone was ugly. My parents said never to use that term. They said "no one is ugly, but they may have ugly ways." I've come to understand that so much better. The sad part is ugly ways will only hurt you. Others can appreciate your beauty, learn to appreciate the beauty that God has made in you.

Allow yourself a season of healing from your ugly, and then you will not only appreciate self but you can love others more. enough for now.

The New You.

How are you doing? What have you recognized about you? What are you going to do? You have done the hardest part- to recognize. Now let's get started. How? Again by listening. And by watching. Listen for guidance from Holy Spirit. And watch what God is doing in your life. This is the start for the new you. It takes small steps, but they will accomplish much. enough for now.

It is You

Have you wondered why you find yourself in the same situations, meeting the same people and having the same issues? And you are upset and mad at everybody about the same thing? Do you hear it? It is not them, the people, places, or things- it is you.

So what do you do with that? Hmm. Let's look at that wounding. You know the core wound from a core need you are missing. That is a good place to start. Get still and ask Holy Spirit to show you your core wound. You may have a few. If you are ready, let's get started.
I bless you with hearing clearly from Holy Spirit. 
I silence the voice of the enemy.
I silence your voice.
Now get still and look at you. enough for now.

Fill Me Up

"Fill me up Lord." How often do we hear that? How often have you prayed that? The crazy thing is -to be able to be filled- we must empty ourselves. Hmm. What can be emptied?  Anything that hinders. Do you need peace, then empty strife. Do you need rest, then empty busyness. You must be willing to let go in order to receive. Let go, then fill me up Lord. enough for now.

Your Will

We must be mindful of who we are, otherwise others will dictate whom we shall be. That is a part of giving control to God. When we think we are in control, too often it can be wrestled away from us by others and we find ourselves lost and confused. No one can wrestle control from God. No one can serve two masters. Today, not my will, but yours God. enough for now.

Learning a new way, relearning self. Hmm. Recognizing that not everyone has the same value system, and learning to work with that. I think that is enough for today. What are you learning? enough for now.

No Routine

Routines may be comfortable, but there are times that what we regard as routine must not be handled with a routine heart. Anything can become routine and so regarded as "it is what is is." But it is never just what it is. So approach your day differently today- whatever the task search for what is being presented to you. Watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Your Specialness

I think if people recognized how special they are, they would not have to make themselves feel special, or important, or bigger than anyone. So many have been wounded through their worth and do not realize that they are only fighting self. It has damaged many relationships, and sometimes even positions at work.

Just let it sink in that you are indeed precious-special-the beloved of God. enough for now.

Thursday, June 1, 2017


Taking time to access, to contemplate, to hear from God. Yes, we really should do that daily. We have so many good ideas that appear to work, but maybe now is not the time for them to be implemented. How about you?

I have found that although God gave them to me, they are for a certain place and time. And God will direct that implementation if I wait. Now since Holy Spirit, as our paraclete, walks alongside, guiding and teaching, just maybe we should wait on the teacher. enough for now

Whose in Your Corner?

I have been on a whirlwind trip visiting family and friends. I didn't get to see my grandsons but I saw quite a few close people. There is something rejuvenating about being in community; being with those who are in your corner and in whose corner you reside. So now I return to carry on the work. Look around. Recognize your close community and connect every chance you get. We all need one another. Happy Memorial Day for those celebrating in America. enough for now.

Where Is Your Faith?

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Heb. 11:1).
Where is it? Where is your faith? Where are you faltering? enough for now.

Mothers, You are Loved

Blessings of joy and contentment to all the mothers on yesterday. Blessings of peace to every child, every husband that reached out not only to your own mother but to another mother. I believe that we should love on our parents while we can and not just on a national day of observance.

We should also learn to love on self as we are special also. Not in a prideful manner, but loving and accepting who we are as God's beloved. When we can do that, we can see that belovedness in others.
Go love today. enough for now.

Saturday, May 6, 2017


PUSH. Push. there are times that you push, then rest. Push, then rest. It somewhat like giving birth. It may be that you are in the birthing process. You may be transitioning through where you are into where you will be. Through where you are into who you are. That is usually what is happening along this spiritual journey.

We crack the shell of who we think we are as we evolve more into who God created us to be. That is is real us. And it is a process that we cant rush but just go with what God is doing in our lives. And so we PUSH, and we rest as we wait on God. We PUSH- Pray Until Something Happens, and rest. You see, sometimes the 'something that happens' is our receiving guidance from Holy Spirit. And that is movement. enough for now.

Are You Limping?

And that's how we start. Just listen. And today- keep on walking. enough for now.

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Remember who you are

You know, wherever you go-remember who you are. Remember that you have been created in God's image and for his expressed purposes. Yes, you have flaws- we all do. Many are lies that we have believed but there is a you that God created and that is your goal along the journey to be the best you you can be.

The image that comes to mind is from an old movie, The Dark Crystal. All was well and peace and balance ruled the land until one day the crystal broke and what was a balance whole became two ruling sets of creatures, the noble and just Mystics (they moved around like giant moles) and the evil Skeksis (who stood tall yet grotesque). The land could not be whole again until the one shard of the crystal was replaced. The evil Skeksis gained control and refused to give it up, thus banishing the noble Mystics out and away. The thing about it is when one Skeksis died, so did one Mystic. A little Gelfing raised by the Mystics set out to find crystal shard and restore. Enough of the background.

As the Gelfing's journey neared completion and everything lined up with the planets, the Mystics began the long journey home. When the crystal was restored the Mystics began to walk upright and the Skeksis shed the grotesque look and each one was blended to a mystic and restored to a magnificent glowing balanced self.

Now to the image: As you walk your journey each leg of your journey restores you to who you are created to be. Each leg of your journey bring you closer to that final destination when you hear "well done." Some legs of the journey will not be easy, but all will be doable. You must realize that you are on a journey and you are not alone. Listen as Holy Spirit guides. Remember who you are. enough for now.

How I Got Over

New day, new time, new place, new people. Nothing familiar. Yes, all of that has happened to me. But I am not alone. Yes, it is different and that cause me to be different, not to assimilate but to understand. And my own woundedness causes me to reflect and wonder- "How I Got Over"- That is an old song we sung when I was little.

All that newness -yet- the same God. That is what I hold to. That is how the song plays out for me. God is indeed a wonder and what ever your 'new' God is still the same God. Just let that stay with you today. It may be in that newness that God has purposed you to grow you, teach you, but in all things- blesses you. enough for now.

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

The New Journey

The new journey begins. Do not be discouraged by those who try to steer you off track by their strange "well wishes." You see, they don't know your dream, they don't know your path, they may not know your God. So be encouraged each day as each day your new journey begins. enough for now.

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

What's New?

It was indeed a day of celebration of our risen Savior. Now how are we walking? Is it business as usual? It should no be -it should be something spectacular as you walk in a newness. Look around, what is your newness? What is blooming fresh in you? enough for now.

Good Friday - The New Normal

On Palm Sunday, as we celebrated Jesus' triumphant entry into the city, I want to share a photo. And this week we walked with Jesus - this last week. The disciples did not know what they were about to face. We don't know what we are to face. Many do not realize where they are and what is happening. Oh but God.

The disciples were about to face a new normal. A time without the physical Jesus but a time with a so much stronger Jesus- the new normal. But before they could get to the new normal, they had to go through pain, fear, dread as they witnessed the crime against Jesus, the crucifixion, the death. And this day, their pain.

What are you going through? What new thing is being birthed out of a dead thing? What are you afraid of? Oh, there is nothing that cannot be faced because of Jesus and his work on the cross. You are not alone. You do not walk this alone- because of Jesus. Yes, something is changing. Changes happen; but you can indeed walk your new normal because of Jesus.

Celebrate the love that is yours. God loves you so much that he gave his son to take all your dysfunctional behaviors, your crazy sin issues so that you could walk in peace with your new normal. enough for now. for now.

Thirsty Yet?

I need more of what God has for me. I watch for it. I long for it. Hmmm. I watch and I wait. If I watch what I see in the physical I will be so disrupted. But if I hold on to what I hear from God, I have peace. I must stay focused on God. "As the deer pants for the streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God" (Ps. 42:1,2 NIV).  

Get thirsty for God, not the temporal things. Watch what God is doing in your life. Listen and follow. enough for now.

Lies/ Truth

More and more clients are recognizing the lies that have bound. Kept them bound although they knew they were lies - in their head. Oh but when they recognized in their heart they were lies - that is when healing could start.

There is so much more in life for you. When you recognize that lie, get still, ask God what is the truth? When you hear the truth you can stand stronger. Yes, you may have read the truth yes you may have spoken the truth, but when you hear truth from God- you can stand. If you are not sure what you hear, line it up with scripture and God's promises for you.

How have you lived your life, structuring it around the lies you have believed? Or the lies you were made to believe? Are you ready to live free from them? It does not matter the lie, what matters is the truth. Send me a note. enough for now.

Keep Going

Don't you love the season of challenge? When what you attempt to do appears so difficult? Yeah, that is part of the challenge. Just know that you are not alone. Keep going. enough for now

Let it Go -This Time

My, my, "Oh what needless pains we bear- all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer." That line from a most loved song rings so true. You need to share with someone. You need to know that there is someone in your corner. You need to know that sharing helps release the toxins of anxiety, worry, fret, anger. . . you know. Yes, you may have someone you can vent to, but that only dumps your stuff on them. You may feel better but they feel dumped on. I offer that giving all that stress to God will relieve you and replace all the stuff with peace.

Yes, your friends can pray with you, but sometimes you tell the same thing to anybody and everybody that will listen. That is no good as you are rehearsing the stuff and not letting it go. Resolve this season to learn to let it go, to give it to God and watch what happens. I'll walk with you. Ready?
enough for now.

Just Walking It Out

This season affords us the community of walking together, either giving up something or taking on something that brings us closer in our spiritual walk. I offer that it should only enhance what we should be doing anyway. This is a journey and we get on with it by walking it out. we do so shedding things that bind us and realizing clarity in hearing clearly. We are not alone, Holy Spirit, as our paraclete walks alongside. Again this season allows us to share with one another what we are doing. Why can't we do that all the time? If we can't find anything to say, just say, "Just walking it out." That is what we are doing. enough for now.

The Way Made

When? When does it all settle down? When will I get paid? When will I find love? When . . . When will the way be made? We have all have so many "when" questions. I can can only offer insight to the last one- when will the way be made. That is already done. But there is a "when" you must answer- When do you walk in it?

You see, we waste so much precious time searching for what we think we want, what we think we need, what we think we should do. Yet, when our way has already been made- we just need to listen and follow. When we follow, we bypass so much undue stress. Stress is us trying to make it fit, make it work, see it through. But the way has already been made for us, each our own way. Walking in that way insures less stress, clarity of thought, and -wait on it . . . PEACE. Come one, don't you need peace? I do.

Use this Lenten season to shift your focus- to listen, watch, and follow. The way has already been made. enough for now.

Uniquely Made

Don't you find it interesting how you can see clearly something and wonder why can't everyone see the same thing? When I was young that bothered me. I could not understand why people could not see what I saw. My sister had to tell me - because it was my gift, it was mine to see. It was not because I was so special, but it was mine to see- to understand.

There have been times that has come back to me lately- with a new understanding. The same way they could not see what I saw, there are things I cannot understand that are clear to others. And again, they are not more special. It is their gift.

It really is cool how God has given us what we have that fits right into the puzzle of life. It is our contribution back to the kingdom. And we cannot work another's gift. We cannot look down on another but look eye to eye, heart to heart, understanding that we are all in this together.

I'm hearing how special you are in the kingdom- warts and all. Just like me. Take time today and marvel at how you are uniquely created. enough for now.

Stop Twirling

What happens when you find yourself in a twirl? You know, those little tornadoes of stresses that can distract, and before you know it you are going off the deep end. What do you do? Do you stay in the twirls worrying about everything, not knowing that your peace is already worked out? What do you?

I offer you to stop, get still, and listen to guidance from Holy Spirit. Yeah, it will take practice if you are not accustomed to doing so, but you can do it. Stop twirling. Be still. enough for now.

Already Done

How often do we allow past issues to creep back into our lives? And the sad thing is that they have already been handled by Jesus on the cross; but we try to continue fixing them. We still apologize, still rehearse what we could have done differently, still worry over what has already happened. Still caught up in our past that has been forgiven. Let that sink in. You are already forgiven. Take time with that- already forgiven. enough for now.

Tuesday, February 14, 2017


Yes, we recognize this day as officially a day of love. But each day should be a day of love. Learn to love yourself first, then others. You see, in order to love others you must know what love feels like. Loving yourself does not pump you into narcissism, that is another mess. But loving yourself sets you up to receive God's love. Too many have felt unloved, unworthy to be loved; but you see, God loves you with such a fierce passion. Had to be fierce, He sent His only son to die a death that you couldn't handle. That sets you up to live in love. As you receive that love, it can flow onto others.

Can you see it? You are indeed loved. Feel what that means. Let it permeate your being. Rest in that. Happy Valentine's Day; more than that Love Blessings every day. enough for now.

Patience. Quietness. Stillness. Be Still. Listen. Wait. Watch. And marvel at how awesome your life is- in spite of anything strange going on. Love your life. enough for now.

Open Your Eyes

The things you see when you open your eyes. Close your eyes. Wait. Open. What do you notice that you missed earlier? Now look in a different direction, what do you see? Now move to look back on where you were. What do you see? What did you miss?

My blessing for you is that your spiritual eyes are opened and you see what you have really been missing. This is more effective when you watch what God is doing. You will recognize solutions to problems that you could not understand. Blessings. enough for now.

"Lord, help me to hold out until my change comes." The sentiment of that song. Wow. How many times have you cried out? Then what? Did you cry out and proceeded to do what you thought? Did you cry out and then waited? We have been so programmed "to do" instead of "to be". It is hard for us "to be". Our first charge is to "Be still and know that I am God" (Ps. 46:10a).

In the being still, we can get clear directions. We wait through our being still. Where are you anxiously fretting, or running around and getting nothing done? Write it down, allow God to handle it and leave it alone. Try it. enough for now.

Waiting Takes Courage

Do you know how hard it is to wait on God? It really is difficult. It takes courage. Oh, but when you do, you find more peace, more clarity, more rest than you could ever imagine. Will you take that step- to wait on God? This is your life, your health- mentally, physically, spiritually, financially. Wait. And in the waiting, watch what God is doing in your life. enough for now.

Sunday, January 22, 2017


Courage. I have to go to my favorite movie of all time. Wait on it . . . The Wizard of Oz. Yeah, that's true. And my favorite character- the lion. You see, I did it call him by his infirmity. But what he felt he lacked was courage until he walked it out. . . Until he got on his journey. 

Courage. When the men were sent to spy the land than God had given them, twelve men went. Ten came back that they couldn't take the land. Two, Joshua and Caleb said, we can take it. They had courage. Here is the crazy part. God had already given the land they just had to walk it. 

(Okay I'm not going into all of this now. More later.)

When the lion got off his spot in front of that building where he had "guarded" for years and got on his journey with the others, he found his courage. 

Courage. We miss many times what God has for us, even after He has said it it ours. All because we are stuck in what we think we know, in our limited vision. Where are you stuck? It's time to move out in what God has promised. Not sure - contact me. There is so much more for you. It's time to walk it out. enough for now.

Saturday, January 21, 2017

At What Point?

At what point? At what point do you stop trying to work it out, fix it, argue it out, run it out, fight it out, pray it out? At what point? At what point do you stop trying and give it to God - whatever the it may be. As long as you're trying, you are controlling. 

Yes, I said pray it out. Think about it. At one level we try to pray our way out of a situation, somewhat like trying to walk God through walking us through. Yes, that is what you thought but there is a slight variation to that. To give it to God and watch. To trust that it is in powerful hands. Even in the praying, when we give it to God we tell what we are going though, but many times we tell how we want it fixed. 
That is our problem. Yes, lament it. . . And wait in expectation of how It will be handled. Are you ready for that? It probably won't be what you thought it will be God. 

We have been so stuck in out ways, those destructive patterns that we felt was 'just the way it is'. Oh it that is so untrue. Stop trying and start releasing it to God. And watch what happens. enough for now.

Stretching Time

I think it is stretching time again. In order to grow more into what God has for us we must be stretched. No, stretching is not fun. It is painful. It causes one to question self, and yet, that can be  good thing. Others tend to look at you weird, you know, like you are on drugs, or have lost your mind. Has it ever happened to you. You see, in the stretching, God is restructuring and reshaping. Yeah, you can resist- if you think you can. But here is the cool part. We always come out better than we started. So why wouldn't we want to be stretched by God?

Stretching gives your will to God. After all, God does know the plan He has for you. Why resist? It is always better than you can imagine. You may not be in the stretching presently; however, the stretching will come. And if you have been stretched- examine what has changed, and thank God for the growth. Blessings in recognizing and accepting your stretching. enough for now.

Make a List

Make a list. How are you doing with keeping up with everything you need to do? Do you get everything done? I offer that at any age you may need assistance. After all, you make a list when you go to the store, don't you? It is quite okay to jot down your assignments for the week, day. You can do months later, let's just get started.

I have a note tablet by my laptop. I jot down the writing, creating assignments I need to get done - period. I don't place them in order but work as I need. At the end of the day I find much has been crossed off and it carries to the next day. At the end of the day I am not in a tizzie about what didn't happen. Making a list frees my mind of those little twirly things that distract. It helps to see my progress, and to thank God for getting the work done. I am able to think on more positive, pleasant things. . . More things of God. And that is healthy and peaceful.

Years ago when I bought my house there were so many things I wanted to do. My sister told me that I could not it all at once. She was right. I made a list and kept it on the side of my refrigerator. As I accomplished one thing I wrote the date and thanked the Lord. As I needed to add to the list I did. But the things I was able to cross off were huge.

Make a list, thank God. It works hand in hand.  Let's talk journaling another time. enough for now.

Listen Anew

I think sometimes we miss what others are saying, because we are listening through our distorted filters. Yes, it happens. And others miss what we are saying because of the same reason. I offer- allow yourself a moment to filter through what God is saying to you. Just listen before speaking so quickly. The enemy is the author of confusion, and does it rather well. Don't you agree?

Think about how many lies in your life you have believed -only to your detriment. Yeah, crazy right? The sad part is that you believed them to be truth until you realized the truth. Listen for the truth from THE TRUTH. Yes, Holy Spirit does guide. Yes God has a plan for you. Listen, watch. Enjoy this day of truth and service. Happy Martin Luther King Day! enough for now.

Sunday, January 15, 2017


Why on earth? Why do we get so upset and distracted by the ramblings of anyone? Oh, I encourage you this week to shift your focus. You see, you are so much more than what you see. You have become so bogged down with the silliness of society and have believed its lies. No, it does not have to be done- this minutes. No- you are not lost. No, it is not over. You are more than a conqueror. You have been distracted. Shift your focus. 

"Why do the nations conspire and the people's plot in vain?" (Ps. 2:1 NIV) Do not be confused. God cares and loves you. And God has purposed you. It is not to cause you to shrink in fear, but to stand -knowing who you are. 

Do not be distracted. Do not fear. Do not worry. Yes, get directions from Holy Spirit. And trust God, not man. enough for now.

"Being Belongs to God"

Stop! Everything is moving too fast. It is already ten days into this year. How is it for you?

It is really "Godlike" for me. I was told to 'be still' a few times and finally got still. Yeah, every so often God has me to just get still. The thing about it was - in the stillness I saw so much more. I witnessed healings for others, recognized hope for me. Now, that is not a new thing. So why must I wait for God to say 'be still'? Hmm, glad you asked. I think it is an old pattern (to break) that I must be doing something. If I'm not doing something, then I am non-productive.

You have heard that too- haven't you? But you see- in the stillness God reveals, God heals, and we have peace. So can you see the "Godlike"? Only God can produce in absolute stillness. I suppose that is a part of our 'being' and not 'doing'. 'Being' belongs to God, 'doing' belongs to us.

The crazy part is that I know what God can do, yet I fall into that pattern of busyness, trying to get 'it' done- whatever the 'it' is. Aww, but 'being' belongs to God, 'doing' belongs to us. Come on, how do we think that we have it all? know it all? We do not.

I offer to trust what you hear from God in the stillness, to be still, and then to wait. Happy Anew Year. Your a-new-ness, your awareness, your healing. Let's go. enough for now.

Get Still

There are times when we really need to just get still. How hard is that for you? It takes great effort for me, but I am learning to heed Holy Spirit- and get still. There is something peaceful in following Holy Spirit's guide. What are you hearing? What is God saying? Listen, be still and listen. enough for now.

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

Look Up

Look up, not down. Look out and then in, not in and then out. Look toward what is for you; not down in defeat. Look out to assist others and then recognize how you are changing positively. Listen, and then follow Holy Spirit's guide for you. Don't get caught up in what others are or are not doing. You are important. You are more valued than you know. Learn how to walk in your worth. enough for now.

TODAY. This is first day of the rest of your life. Yesterday does not count. Yes, it may influence the outcome of today and tomorrow; but it is done. Move on. Whatever you did not get right yesterday you have today. Walk a different way. Hear more intently. Follow more closely. It is your right to your peace, your rest. This day you can walk stronger, more confident, trusting in what has been promised to you. Leave yesterday behind and walk in TODAY.

"Therefore God again set a certain day, calling it Today, when a long time later he spoke through David, as was said before: 'Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts'" (Heb.4:7 NIV).

I want to add a song from Donnie McClurkin as a theme for TODAY.

Happy New Year! Happy New Life. enough for now.
