Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

Words of Wisdom for the Weekend: Life, Love, and Light {with web links}

"The light shines in the darkness, 

and the darkness has not overcome it."
{John 1:5}



"This is the stunning message of Christianity: Jesus died for you so that he might live in you. Jesus doesn't merely improve your old nature; he imparts to you and entirely new nature—one that is completely united with his. Everything that belongs to him becomes your. His righteousness replaces your unrighteousness. His Spirit fills your spirit. His love becomes your love. His joy becomes your joy. His mind becomes your mind. His desires become your desires. His will becomes your desires. His will becomes your will. His purpose becomes your purpose. His power becomes your power. The Christian life this becomes nothing less than the outliving of the indwelling Christ. This in the essence of what it means to be a Christian—a follower of Christ."

A Soft Gentle Voice


Life is messy and broken. That is the way it is. There is baggage and junk. 
My sister sent this video to me and while I was doing dishes and rolling our pastry for a party I listened to this powerful message. 
Just like yours my family is full of brokenness. 
BUT there is hope in the power of the Gospel.

"I am a brand new person . . . this is the story of me today . . . "

"I love you . . . I came full of grace and full of truth . . . Put down the book of being the victim . . . the story of the Victor is overwhelming the story of the victim . . . No once can separate you from the love of God . . ."

"You will never be without the love of a Father." 

"I am His and He is mine"

"It is only possible . . . with Christ and it's only possible at the cross."


A love letter straight from the Word of God.

How To Get Through the Dark Places [#TheJesusProject 2]
I read this one out loud to my hubby in the dark late one night. If you haven't read it, take a few moments to read this incredible story. And while you're at it, you may still want to join in on the memory work project. It is not too late.

"While others run fast, you can just shuffle with perseverance. 
While others impress, you can simply press on.  
While others stop for the dark, you can run through the dark. 
The race is won by those who keep running through the dark. 
Could be the year to pull a Cliff Young."

  1. Your picture is stunning and I loved what you shared from David Pratt. I'm sitting in the airport waiting to return home and find myself emotional today over what He did for us..just in awe.
    Blessings to you friend.
