Journey to Rest (Week 1)

I was eight years old, it was summertime, and oh how I loved to read!  Working in the yard was never my first choice for my summer days, but it had to be done nonetheless.  This particular day, my mom headed out to the yard to work and told me she would let me know…

When Dreams Change

I remember the moment as if it were yesterday.  Standing at the altar of our church, along with others, seeking God, with my hands lifted and heart open to His voice.  As clear as day, it was prophesied over me, that God would use my hands for His glory. I am honored to have been…

Waiting for Help

As I walk this journey of rest (obedience), I find myself, for the first time, learning to ask for help.  I say learning, because I’ve always been one to set a goal, work at it and accomplish it, alone. My career is one where I am the sole admin in an office of engineers, machinists…

Love Heals All

Reveling in "Wait"

As I embrace this season of “wait” & “rest”, the Holy Spirit gave me this understanding and I could hardly wait to share with you! Wherever you might be on your journey, may you join me in reveling in the here & now. May you look up to Christ, and focus on Him, rather than…

Rest is a Choice

As I’ve mentioned before, God has called me to a season of REST, yet I am continually bombarded with more things to keep me busy! So I simply ask God, “Why, if you are calling me to REST, is my life getting busier?” What I hear in response is simply, “REST, Child. REST” Then it…
