Wild At Heart 

“We cannot escape the law that would persuade all things to remain wild or to return to a wild state after a period of cultivation. What is true of the field is true also of the soul if we are but wise enough to see it.” A.W. Tozer, “The Root of the Righteous” After a…

God Operates In The Unexpected

Rarely does God work in ways in which we expect that he will. Even the non-religious among us may admit to believing that God does indeed work in “mysterious ways.”   From Genesis to Revelation we see clearly (thanks to hindsight) that God pretty much always works in the most unexpected ways. He told Abraham…

A Different December

I have always loved December. All the decorations and music and excuses to eat, drink and be merry are enough to put me into a perpetual state of holiday frenzy. Most of my Decembers past flew by at break-neck speed leaving my head spinning on December 26… but not this December. Quite frankly, this entire…

Aslan is on the move

I just love this quote from C.S. Lewis’s “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe”. It’s probably one of my most favorite literature quotes of all time. There is something so powerful and exciting and hard to really wrap my arms around entirely within the context and the feel of a very short sentence that,…

My Focus for 2014

I began 2013 committing to focus on one word for the year: Believe. This turned into Believing God and a secondary focus on God’s Promises. I set out to scour the Bible to learn about God’s promises and how I could rightly apply those promises to my life. This was, in a way, my mission…

Staying Connected In the Midst of Change

Eight weeks ago our little family of three became four as we welcomed precious Lucas James Walters into the world! He is a doll and we are soaking up every sweet minute of his new little life. His presence, however, has brought my blogging and my study of God’s promises to a screeching halt. Since…

Draw Near to God and He Will Draw Near to You (James 4:8)

I have heard it said that “God is a gentleman.” I am not sure who said it or the context in which it was first said, but I think it was in terms of how God responds to us in that he doesn’t force us to be in relationship with him. Rather, he is patient…

I’m Believing God

Well, I just finished working through the Bible study “Believing God” written by Beth Moore. I began this study earlier this year as I was praying about how to know and understand God’s promises.  I am so thankful that I had the chance to work through the workbook and watch a few of the videos…

How to Face Your Fears

God is leading me down a very interesting and unexpected path as I seek to know and believe his promises.  The more I study the promises of God and ask for his help believing his promises, I find him leading me face to face with my fears. To be truthful, fear is what propelled me…

The Power that Fuels My Belief

As I continue to pursue the promises of God in Scripture, I have come to realize and believe that the power fueling all spiritual belief is the Word of God. The Scriptures themselves are the spoken, inspired Words of God. There is truly nothing more powerful for those who believe than ingesting, inhaling, absorbing, immersing…
