A Shaky Question

Can you identify the foundation of your life? What are your priorities? What are you building on? It’s a key question for steps forward. When our priorities are out of alignment, we will find our footing begins to slip.

Often we can start on what appears to be on steady  ground.  But when the winds and waves come, we find our foundation crumbles. Why is that? Because our life was built on things that can be destroyed.

Steadying the Platform

Because God is spirit, we worship and love and talk to Him with our spirit. We are spirit to spirit. His spirit is the greatest foundation we can build upon. Why? He is eternal, His love for us is eternal, and He will never disappoint us. When HE is our foundation, He will never crumble.

Things of this earth will crumble. Yes, relationships and careers and finances all have the potential to crumble. But HE will never crumble and His love for us will never crumble. He is a sure foundation.

    The latter years are supposed to be the best, filled with confidence, grace, forgiveness, wisdom and contentment. What happens when we reach those years and we have not met the milestones we expected? Sometimes we need to stop, breathe, and take inventory of where we are, have been,

  • As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. Proverbs 27:19 I’ve been thinking a lot about grace; a five-letter word that reaches to the depths of the earth and the heights of the heavens. It’s readily available, yet we have trouble grasping it. How can we be the

    Forward Movement If you are going through a season of brokenness, seeking healing and wholeness, keep moving forward. Forward doesn’t always look the way you think it should. Sometimes you take a step forward and retreat two steps because the world looks unsafe and risky. This is

    Wonder … May It Be Unto Me … This time of year not only brings a celebration of the birth of Jesus, it also takes me to the heart of Mary, the earthly mother of Jesus. In Luke 1:30, the angel of the Lord said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.

    Cultivating a Heart of Gratitude Scripture says we are to cultivate a heart of gratitude. Rather than thinking about the things we don’t have, we can train our hearts to thank God for what we do have. Shelter, food, clothing, jobs, health, etc. But how? I have learned the secret of
