Stomping it out with Jesus

At first I was burdened--heavy hearted-- but after several blows, I was rippin' mad.  Mama bear mad.  The devil had dished out his fury and this mama went stompin' it out with Jesus in the garden and in the name of Jesus declaring, "Enough!   Get your filthy hands off my boy!  He belongs to Jesus!"  … Continue reading Stomping it out with Jesus

The Anniversary of New Life { Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge }

Hope for the Broken

I've come to realize I don't really like broken things.  I have a strong urge to fix them ...immediately!    If something was made to work a certain way, then work a certain way it should.  Anything less is ...well, irritating.  Somewhere in the idealistic-perfect-wanna-be-world of my mind, things are made to continue doing what they… Continue reading Hope for the Broken

Bumping Into the Cross on Good Friday

In my mind, I pictured a rushing river.  As the river made its way downstream, a cross  was… Continue reading Bumping Into the Cross on Good Friday

God allowed the call, the Holy Spirit sent a text, and Jesus knocked on the back door …

"I'm anxious and overwhelmed!"  was the call this morning -- in tearful conversation --  and what's this  mama to do when the state of things is overwhelming and the reality is that we're states apart -- too many to jump in my van and get there fast enough ! My heart begins to pray. My… Continue reading God allowed the call, the Holy Spirit sent a text, and Jesus knocked on the back door …
