  • Leaving the Leaven?

    16 April 2014

    Immediately following Passover, in fact, beginning during the Pesach Feast, comes the feast known as “Unleavened Bread”. I find this order of things most significant! First the Lamb is sacrificed, and its blood is applied to “thresholds” of our “dwellings”,...

  • Teshuvah, The U-Turn to Freedom!

    17 April 2014

    I greet each day in the Joy of His love, choosing His victory, to live above the defeats of the flesh that threaten and churn, I choose to listen, to return - to the Word of Life, from the ways of death – Yeshua, my hope, my Life, my breath! He is my...

  • Tales From Pandora's Box

    21 April 2014

    A Victim's Archives - A Story of Dysfunctional Love, and Restored Hope Part One: The Beginning of the End... Long ago, in a tech school far, far away, in what now seems like another world altogether, two pairs of hazel eyes connected in what seemed an...

  • Deliverance = Trust

    12 August 2014

    Spiritual "Deliverance" (from strongholds, addictions, generational "downloads", and persistent illnesses) is as much about us being willing to empty ourselves, as it is about His ability to empty us of the affliction that has us bound, or is hindering...

  • The Cross-Road to Joy

    16 August 2014

    The Joy of the Lord is my strength. I am trying to beat this concept into my exhausted being. I am trying to learn what this means. I am trying to grasp the practical application of this truth. What does “The Joy of the LORD” look like? It isn't the silly...

  • The GOOD News, For a CHANGE!

    31 August 2014

    There is an Anointing that's so very real, an Anointing to help, an Anointing to heal! An Anointing to break down the walls in your life, He brings hope to despair, and He speaks peace to strife! There's a very real salve to the deepest of pain, there...

  • Plunging the Depths

    01 September 2014

    Most of the time when I hear this expression, “plunging the depths”, people are talking about suicidal depression! And that seems to be the only “depths”, besides the actual Ocean, that anyone seems to know anything about these days. But what I want to...

  • Self-deprivation, Sacrifice, or Self-satisfaction?

    03 September 2014

    Or one could say instead; Abasement, Abandonment or Accomplishment? Ruts, Rivers or Rain? As I have explained in other writings, for us humans attempting to be spiritual - that is, for those of us who feel we must do our best to find an eternal meaning...

  • Love. God's Law. God's Nature. God's Plan for Mankind.

    13 September 2014

    Love is God's Law, God's nature, and God's plan for man. Simple logic tells us this. God IS Love. He had His many writers declare this reality about Himself. And when He made His prime creation, He made them – us - in His own image and likeness! We were...

  • Diseased Lust, or Divine Love?

    14 September 2014

    Which fruit is our "ministry" bearing? I was reading another devotional compilation of Oswald Chamber's excellent teachings, named, “Devotions for a Deeper Life”, and came across this startling passage that stopped me in my tracks with wonder. The truth...

  • Come!

    08 October 2014

    “ As long as you have even the least bit of spiritual disrespect, it will always reveal itself in the fact that you are expecting God to tell you to do something very big, and yet all He is telling you to do is to “Come . . . .” .” ~ Oswald Chambers;...

  • A Poetic Call to Unity

    23 October 2014

    I want to say right off – again - I don't believe in “Race”; except for one, which is “Mankind”, which God Himself has set in place! However, in our silly world, where skin tones still divide, we stir pots of division, while ever striving to rule the...

  • "But Others..."

    04 November 2014

    { Hebrews 11:36-40 The “Faith-List” Which We Tend to Avoid} How many are aware that there are two lists, in what we like to call “The Faith Hall of Fame”, which are located in Hebrews chapter eleven? There is a “Winner's Circle” and a “Commendation for...

  • Dealing with Religious Rejection...

    27 November 2014

    I just have to say this. I am dog-tired of being judged because I live my life with transparency, honesty and accountability! I am tired of people, who wouldn't know the Truth if He came and sat on their sofa, trying to stand in judgment of me because...

  • Battle Ready or Devil Bait?

    12 December 2014

    It has been said that God anoints whom he appoints. And, of course, that is absolutely true! However, what we tend to miss, in the spiritual/religious community, is that there is usually a, somewhat extensive, absolutely prerequisite, training period...

  • To Have and To Hold....From This Day Forward....

    07 January 2015

    An Open Letter: To The Unwed Followers of Yeshua The Messiah (a.k.a. Jesus the Anointed One); Blessings to you in the name of our Blessed LORD! I want to discuss the subject of holiness among “single believers”. And, of course, by “single” I mean those...

  • To Those I Most Cherish - Continued

    01 February 2015

    Another Open Letter ... In which I attempt to answer the burning question, “WTF just happened!?” (What? So soon? Yes! And again it is long...sorry...please endure.) Yes children of mine, I am continuing my dissertation this soon, because none of us are...

  • Cultivating a Positive Atmosphere

    03 February 2015

    I felt impressed this morning as I was reading my daily declarations, that I was being questioned by the Spirit of the Lord - “Are you really, 'Blessing the Lord at all times, and continually praising Him with my mouth..'? It seems to me that I am hearing...

  • Helping/Giving vs. Enabling/Entrapping. . .

    15 February 2015

    Where is the Line? Over the years we have been looked to by others for help, but to us it seems that we have more often been the ones on the “needing help” end of the stick. Being on both ends has taught me some valuable lessons about giving and helping....

  • A Basic Misunderstanding

    07 May 2015

    That phrase would describe most of my life. I have had, because that's what I was given, a basic misunderstanding of who I am, what I was called to be, and how that purpose and calling were supposed to function. I have been slandered and maligned, unintentionally,...

  • Parenting: Peril, Promise and Privilege

    10 May 2015

    Parenting is one of God's main object lessons. It is not for the faint of heart or weak of mind, or the short on spine! It is NOT for those lacking Chutzpah. It takes all nine “Fruit of the Spirit” listed in Galatians. It takes anointing, authority and...

  • Spiritual Life Hacks 101

    12 May 2015

    (Straight up principles from the Word of God which will keep us in the center of His prescribed paths of righteousness.) Being good eliminates the need to be “careful”. (Because we don't care who catches us doing the right thing! Right? Why is that?)...

  • "What a Day (Glorious Day) That Will Be"

    16 May 2015

    As our earthly sun begins to wane, Shabbot begins to rise; I think of ending all the pain, and much to my surprise, A joy beyond the normal joy, begins to flood my soul, The spirit man does leap for joy, anticipating "whole"! As dusky shadows hide the...

  • Shabbot Shalom

    01 June 2015

    Another Shabbot's sun has set, and many haven't thanked God yet! Thanked Him for another week, another rest, for time to seek, His blessed presence, quiet, still, a chance to know His blessed will. For Shabbot is a blessed command, a gift of rest from...

  • Got Hope?

    05 June 2015

    Hope is THE elusive butterfly, except when sent by the hand of God! But when it is a messenger of His, it can withstand any storm, deflect any blow, heal any wound, and repel any foe! It is good stuff! Tough stuff! But seemingly easily lost or stolen....
