Hope that holds me

When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High. He’s the hope that holds me and the Stronghold to shelter me, the only God for me, and my great confidence. Psalm 91:1-2 TPT Psalm 91, the Psalm often used as a prayer of protection, brings…

His harmonies

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.

The lows

Last week was the lowest I have been during this season of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many difficult and heavy things were going on throughout the week – too many to list here – even as we continue to endure the cloud of uncertainty and growing waves of the Coronavirus across the country.

I can’t go on

“I can’t go on.” We will inevitably have days when we feel like we can’t go on. When our personal lives are hard and we are invaded by the heavy clinging blanket of the outside world. We simply cannot escape the fact that we are in trying times. There are times we may feel like…

Compassion

“COMPASSION means ‘to suffer with’. Not pity. Not sympathy. Not saving. But co-suffering. It’s a visceral desire to be with each other in the pain and a vital longing for new possibilities together.” // Jay & Katherine Wolf, Hope Heals Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility,…
