“Know your worth.”

Does God Disappoint?
I think it’s safe to say that we have all had a time or two where we just plain missed it. We did it our way and then later came to know whatever it was, it was a wrong choice and may have even had some rough consequences.
But have you ever done something in complete surrender and submission to God, following His lead, yielding fully and then later feeling disappointed in what came next?
Why do we think being a Believer is going to fulfill our personal goals and
What can we do when it feels like the world has been stripped of you? How should we go? How do we proceed and prevail?
We proceed faithfully into our destiny.

The dessert rose is a lovely plant. So stunning is its thick trunk, green leaf and star shaped flower most gardeners recommend showcasing this plant rather than tucking it in with the other garden foliage. The dessert rose originated near the Sahara Dessert. This flower loves the heat and is drought resistant.
The human heart is like a lily of the valley, the dessert rose, a garden of splendor. Just like a garden, the human heart needs special care and attention. Not every heart is exactly the same. Some need
What do the caterpillar and bumble bee have in common?
Neither knows how extraordinary they could be. Sometimes the same it true for you and for me. We never see ourselves quite as we should. Either too grand or not so good.
But the caterpillar overcomes to become something beautiful that can fly. And the bee possesses wings that can take it high despite the laws of physics (body too big and wings too small). He flies anyway and extracts sweet nectar everywhere he goes.
All of life has something beautiful that can
You are doing a lot of good.
You may not always be aware of how your life is positively impacting others, but believe that it is…
and one day, God will bless you to see the fruit. Keep loving. Keep believing and keep receiving all God has for you. He’s got you! So continue on dreaming big. In fact, I challenge you to—
Only the best is yet to come.
And never forget, the battle is already won and the promise is done.

The moon arises and this is of no surprise, yet it takes the breath away.
God is like both the sun & the moon—He isn’t going anywhere.
He is committed to you through thick &

The Bible is mostly poetry? Nearly fifty percent of it! This is a fact I learned just yesterday and it tickled my heart. Because when the Spirit speaks to me and when He crowds my pen and I rend, something poetic as a prose or rhyme comes to my mind every time. I love this because He has always versed my pen and courted my heart with smoothness of words. It’s like salve to my soul.

A year ago in late spring the Lord told me He wanted me to go to Israel with a trip my pastor was planning. The deposit was due by August 2018. Because my husband would be going also the deposit would of course be double. $1,000 by August that I didn’t have. But that’s not stopped God before.
