Jesus and the Purple Grass

Jesus and the Purple Grass

The other day I felt God prompting me to send a web design proposal to an organization that I knew needed a website. I put it together and sent it off to the administrator, I’ll call him Mr. Brown. A few hours later he replied. “ We are; in fact, currently completing...

A Sliver of Pain

A Sliver of Pain

This is an ugly story and this is your warning. If you are artistic or creative and see stories come to life, this will be icky and you have my permission to walk away before I get going. When people tell stories, the pictures form in my mind. In color even. The only...

Sounds of the Butterfly

Sounds of the Butterfly

God speaks softly to me. Sometimes in the whisper of a butterfly dance--so quickly, so quietly if I’m not listening for Him I miss the sound. He has always been that way with me. I’ve never had big, open visions or an overwhelming arrival of an angel or Jesus showing...

Walking on Water: Transition

Walking on Water: Transition

When you get out of the boat there’s only one thing you can do, keep looking at Jesus. That’s it. No looking at the waves. No noticing how strong the wind is blowing or contemplating the storm. None of that. We all know how that ends. So now you’re out of the boat...

God Gave me Flowers

God Gave me Flowers

My past is a trail highlighted by the places where flowers grew. I can track my life in flowers and foliage. I can’t tell you who was with me during many childhood events, or even what we did, but I can tell you the colors of the flowers and the kind of plants that...

On the Road with Jesus

On the Road with Jesus

Several months ago I woke up from a dream where Jesus walked away. Later, I could laugh, but at the time I remember standing in the middle of a dirt road surrounded by prairie fields as far as I could see and feeling wildly scared. I looked down at something on the...

A Goose and a Fish

A Goose and a Fish

A Goose -  The other day God started talking to me about a goose, a golden egg and a fish. About how I spend my energy in life; how I sacrifice a lot of time, peace and joy to gain some golden egg laid by a special goose. I chase it, making prayers to convince God to...

Gifts and Invitations

Gifts and Invitations

I have come to believe that all the supernatural experiences I have had are simply invitations from God. Invitations to come closer. To seek further into who He is and how He thinks. To understand how He loves. I had a dream a few years ago where I was traveling from...

What You Focus on Grows

What You Focus on Grows

I walk differently now. Instead of precarious and tormented I walk straight, sure of my foundation and full of joy that makes no sense. I can’t turn around and go back. There is no other path for me but the one where Jesus leads, as odd and mysterious as it seems. ...

Seek the Lord

Seek the Lord

How do you seek the Lord with all your heart? I know I struggle with how to define ‘Seeking God.’ What does it look like? Is it going off to a monastery in solitude and meditating quietly alone? Is that how I should separate myself as unto the Lord? As appealing as it...

On Seeking

On Seeking

It feels like I’ve spent most of my life hearing Jesus say, “Are you coming?” “Are you going to get out of the boat? Will you follow Me down the road wherever it leads?” I woke up one morning some months ago to hear Him speaking loudly in my heart, “Seek. Seek. Seek.”...

The Two Great Lies

The Two Great Lies

Who are we? According to Darwin's theory of evolution, we are not created in God’s image. We are the same as the animals. And yet the bible teaches we are made up of earth and of God. All things and creatures that He created He spoke into being with His voice except...

Seeking Jesus

Seeking Jesus

Do I walk with Jesus? Well, I always have, sort of. My spiritual life was not anything I ever wanted to share with others because there was so much confusion in it. Why would I want to invite others into this life that seemed a bit tormented…knowing there was a God...

God’s Wildest Dream

God’s Wildest Dream

You are God’s Wildest dream. I am God’s Wildest Dream. Why did we not know this? Why were we not told? I have ached most of my life with an underlying sense of my own lack. A self-hatred even. Knowing I was not good enough but fighting for a place of worth. Thinking...

The Random Dangerous People

The Random Dangerous People

I have often thought I should wear a button that says, “Does not play well with others,” just to warn people there’s a cranky introvert coming their way. It’s not that I don’t want to play well, it’s just that I don’t see how to and when I do, it feels a bit like...

Contemplating the Garden

Contemplating the Garden

As believers, we were not taught to look into the past. To squint our eyes and focus through the mist at the untended garden. As a young person my goal was to climb the wall and escape the constraints. There were people who believed in my potential but no one who...

Knowing His Voice

Knowing His Voice

There are some things I am learning about my Heavenly Father. He is good. He enjoys me. He likes to talk with each of His kids. He is always looking for people who will love Him and believe what He says. The trouble Eve had, as do all of us, is that when the enemy of...

Abba, I Belong to You

Abba, I Belong to You

For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”  Romans 8:15 I have been a follower of Jesus since I was a child, but not really. Not like one of the apostles...
