January 27, 2016 bless them


Good morn’, God’s Child,

As a Kingdom mom, I love it that we have the privilege of not only praying for our children, but BLESSING them as well. There is this place of dearly loved dead calm, where His truth holds and keeps and stays. We can access that place for our sons and daughters and He will rise in His empowerment in them. 

The God of Creation reminds them, when He becomes … when He remains the center of their focus, their circumstances have already changed, and they, as His child, have changed … and are changing with them. Blessed ones. Kept ones. Loved ones. Empowered ones. Thank you, Father, for my children. Bless them. Thank you. 

“GOD spoke to Moses: “Tell Aaron and his sons, This is how you are to bless the People, say to them,

GOD bless you and keep you, 

GOD smile on you and gift you, 

GOD look you full in the face and make you prosper. 

… I will confirm it by blessing them.” Numbers‬ ‭6:22-27‬ ‭MSG

Wake up. 

Bless a child.

January 26, 2016 grip


“I’ve picked you. I haven’t dropped you.’ Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.” Isaiah‬ ‭41:9-10‬ ‭MSG

Good morn, HeldOne,

You need God. 

 … God needs you. He does. 

Some may argue. Here’s the way I see it …

He needs you to be the light of the world through which He shines…

Right where you are, God is, and He believes in you and takes up residence in you. When you get quiet, when you choose to still your mind, the Holy Spirit begins to unfold … and soar. 

Say, “yes” to His presence, DearOne, and He activates His power … infusing your being with His peace. Held. In His grip. 


Only one requirement … you must want it. You must want Him. 

It’s not based on anything other than deep desire. Ask. 

No other reason. 

You just want it. 

It is just that simple. 
Wake up. 

Want the Holy.

Jan. 21, 2016 send the blessing … Phil 4:19


Mornin’ DearSoul,

Who hasn’t been pained. Scarred. Rejected. Passed over. Unappreciated.
Then, once we unwind our spirit and ego from the sting, now and again we can choose to send out, to the tormenter, a blessing. Yes, we can choose to send a blessing, anyway.

Ok. This hurt. Even shattered. Move along now. You can’t change the dark and vacant ones; that’s not your job. Wish them well. Love them where they’re at. And, even though you’d never share a moment or join forces with that person ever again, the blessing you grant is heartfelt.

How deep does the river in your canyon-heart go?

This, DearOne, this is how you send a blessing of healing:

God’s love is transformational. Christ’s love unshackles even the dark and blank and meanest and emptiest of hearts. He sets freedom in motion.

Send them a blessing as if you had the power to make all their dreams come true; as if every peace you extend to them is a certainty because you have the power to make it so. Because, with your relationship to Christ, He brings more power to them than you will ever fathom. 

Send out a blessing of healing to their future. Send them unconditional love, extraordinary love – here is where you and I get to be the personal angels, 

bestowing treasures, 

and freedoms, 

and fulfillments, 

and peace on them 

– we have unlimited reserves of God’s love to send into their future … so, it will be waiting on them when they get there. And, from your example and my example and our faith, they’re learning there is more of HIM available when they get there, too. Phil 4:19 “my God will supply ALL.’ 

Yes, there’s more where that came from.

This kind of loving to the one who has caused bitterness can be piercing. You will likely have to face your own grief and dejection as you bless another’s chasm to be lifted. You will also have to nod to your connection to them. And, that is hard when you’ve chosen to move on. Hard like a blast of mace to your face. Like a heart attack. Your throat may burn.
As you release the blessing toward them, you will transfer acid resentment into no less than Holy alteration. Spiritual shift. Revolution.

Baby, you’ve got to engage in focused training for this kind of deep loving. Because, on the other side is where your freedom lies. That is where peace flows endlessly. Love wins.

If you so choose.
Wake up. 

Choose. Send the blessing.

January 15, 2016 curtain


“… but joy comes with the morning.” Psalms‬ ‭30:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Hello, BelovedOne,

Your soul can never be extinguished, joy is always available . . . it never evaporates completely. The delight, His delight rising in you and me is so foundational to your ‘self’, then every other circumstance can lie on top of joy. Even grief. You can grieve with your whole heart, and still sense your joy. You can feel anger and heart pains, and be aware of your joy sitting just behind the curtain, patient waiting for your retrieval.

You, yes – YOU, can incite reassurance here. You can get duped, lied about, used, dumped on, and wound through a twister, and still feel held by the joy of His presence – the truth of your existence. There is so much more going on in the heavenlies than you think you know. Trust Him. Trust His ways. He is at work in you and your loves. 

Keep standing. His presence is our constant call home to our true nature. You grow in joy with every trial; look for it You will find Him. 

Wake up.

Incite joy.

January 14, 2015 lifted


  “This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!” Nehemiah‬ ‭8:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Good morning, DearHeart,

She comes in brazen glory. Full and satisfied all in the same breath. So fully present that the stars stay out to face her. It is the Holy Spirit pressing in while pressing out. Joy lifts her. Joy cures her broken parts. The God Most High radiates through His beloved. 

He lights. 

He burns. 

He soothes. 

He is the constant melody. Gentle. Pure. Pulsing. Fizzing. Rooting. Flying. Polishing. Delight. 

Delight is the fiber of your unusual nature, God’s Child. Your Creator placed that there for Divine purpose. Joy is the grit of your Soul. Ah. Sweet joy. 

Wake up.

Give His joy to others.

‘“And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Good morning, God’s Child,

Life gets tricky. Ice sneaks up, we slip. A left hook sneaks in. Stakeholders move on. The unexpected checks out. You do your very best and souls of the dark-empty turn you into their scapegoat, anyway. 

So, DearOne, what will you do when the unthinkable happens? 

Grief rises, then the stages play out . . . 



-just breathe, 



-baby steps, 

… they all overlap and rare-up, and replay and settle down again, but always present.

So, you wonder – you ask, “Father, what is this here to teach me? What’s the gift in this new season? Help me identify them. Stay with me. Show me. Grow me. What small change can I make today that will make an impact?”
We surround ourselves with loving people. Positive souls. Smiles. Spirit-filled souls. 

Let me invite you, DearOne, to consider this: change is also to be celebrated. If your life was exactly the same ten years from today as it is now, you’d be a puddle. It would not be pretty. Change gives us juice. Adventure. Discovery.

Change gets a bad rap. It is not comfortable. But, the Holy in us is always, ALWAYS, working for our highest good. How about if you could trust Him a little more today, and doubt a little less . . . of life, of others, of yourself? How about if you allow your Creator room to make you uncomfortable so He can deliver sweet gems of insight that are right there, waiting, just beyond your fear, yes, there they are . . . waiting to be seen? His ways are right.

Trust Him in this moment. 

Trust His ways. 

Wake up.

Allow room.

January 8, 2016 wisdom



“When God fixed the weight of the wind and limited the water by measure, when He established a limit for the rain and a path for the lightning, He considered wisdom and evaluated it; He established it and examined it.” Job‬ ‭28:25-27‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Hello, DearHeart,

Growing up here in Oklahoma, I thought there were about 37 seasons. Nighttime season, shade tree season, thunderstorms shaking leaves, dry wood campfire, bending tree, green tree season, locust in the trees season, firefly season, crying trees season, shimmering tree season, chirping wild, pink fuzzy flower blooming tree season (excellent for garnishing mud-pies). I especially loved seasons of snow sparkling like diamonds across the field. Any kind of snow, really – steaming snow, squeak when you walk snow, dirty snow, snow you had to kick your heel down into for traction so you could walk.  

We see, we know, we learn of God’s design around us … each day arrives and delivers a new season with personality of its own. Wisdom of its own. As each unfolds, His grace surrounds, for when we ask, our Father, Creator, He is faithful to plant wisdom into our soul. Like the seasons that are sometimes kind and human, other times wildishly changing, all of them, any of them lead with purpose … they lead us to our soul home. 

Wake up. 

Embrace today’s season. Fresh wisdom.

January 6, 2015 transition 


“‘May the LORD bless you and protect you. May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you. May the LORD show you his favor and give you his peace.’” Numbers‬ ‭6:24-26‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Good Morning, Fellow Prayer Warrior,

Are there sons and daughters whom you are lifting in prayer today? Younger friends and family? 

Every young person I know is facing a battle at the moment. Including my loves. Life always makes me go “hmmm?” at its cycles. Our younger ones truck along just doing whatever it is we do all easy and free, then suddenly life hits and the stakes get high. 

Our Bry went back to college this week for his final senior semester. (I miss him already – such a grounding rod, wise, old soul). God has all of my chicks in a phase that is building up for transition. 

What a great joy it is to pray over and bless our children with God’s infinite, immutable Word. He promises that His Word “will not return empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it” (Is 55:11). 

Take notice here … by blessing our children, you and I become conduits of of the POWER of God’s victory, goodness, and God’s favor on them. These blessings not only impact them TODAY, but for years … even generations to come. 

As your thoughts go to each of your chicks today – send them a blessing … will you do that for them? Place their name in the prayer. It is especially meaningful to touch them tenderly on the arm, on the head, with a sweet hug as you deliver your blessing. 

May the Lord bless you, _______ (Levi, Holly, Bry, Dani, Luke), and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance on you, and give each of you peace. 

Wake up. 

Pray His power on them.

January 5, 2016 cross over



“He stilled the storm to a murmur, and the waves of the sea were hushed. They rejoiced when the waves grew quiet. Then He guided them to the harbor they longed for.” ‭Psalms‬ ‭107:29-30‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Take a deeper breath, DearHeart, 

Fall deeply within your heart and picture yourself crossing a bridge over a creek to enter into an old farm cabin that sits just behind your heart… once you cross over, you look back and the bridge is gone and there is only silence. A deep and pure quiet wraps you as you step into the cabin. There’s a glowing flame in fireplace and a chair and quilt nearby beckons you to sit. Stay. 

You hear a voice that quiets you deeper still and you know that you are with God. In the silence your Creator says, “I have been waiting a long time to be with you in this silence.”

Imagine the embrace of the Divine as You feel Him say “My child, I have a question for you – and it will change your life.” And deep from within God says -“what have I given you in this life that is too much to carry? – tell me what I have given you that is too much to carry and give it back to me…release it to me… release it to me.”

The God Most High says “I place my hand on your head, My Child, and the Grace of God and heaven go through you and release the diseases that assault your body, the suffering that assaults your heart, the grief that grips your soul, the pain that plunders your body. Now feel the grace from heaven consuming you from the inside out and surrender it all – simply let it go.

God, grant me the grace of awe and honor for my life so that I may be grateful I am alive.

God, allow me the grace of reverence so that I see every human being as Your child.

Grant me extraordinary understanding so that I can see beauty and truth in my relationships with others.

Grant me the grace of fortitude so that I have the mettle to answer when you call my name.

God, give me the grace of Your wise counsel so that I can hear you when you guide me.

Pour into me the grace of knowledge to understand the higher meaning of things.

Download into me the wisdom to see clearly the choices I need to make.

Let nothing, Father, disturb the silence of peace in my heart.

In the Holy and Precious name of Jesus, I ask for Your river of calm to flow in me. Amen

Wake up. 

Meet with Him.

January 4, 2016 send a blessing


“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord shines over you.” Isaiah‬ ‭60:1‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Good morning, DearHeart,

Only four days in and 2016 has already dealt a blow to many of our local families. As a community, as a friend, our hearts reel in questions and concern. Tragedy often stops us in our tracks, begging God for answers. Know this … He is faithful, DearOne, to lead us through the questions. 

He asks, “My Child, do you trust Me, even tho you aren’t yet meant to understand?” Even in tragedy, even when we are set back on our heels from the attacker, He asks us to review our choices of the day, and to be aware … “Have you made choices today that are wise – that will work on your behalf and the behalf of others?” If so, bless those choices. Take a deep breath and ask your Creator to fill those choices with His Divine reasoning … with His Divine grace. Only He gives grace in full measure – the kind of grace that allows you and me to arise and shine from the “even tho” place where we feel slain. His grace is a power that comes in and transforms a moment into something better. 

He is the hope that allows us to love, even when under attack. As you arise choose to leave love at every place you walk today, at every doorway you pass, with every one you see, with each soul that crosses your mind – love. And, send them a blessing. 

Change begins in the simplest of choices, in the simplest of ways – with you and me. 

Wake up. 

Arise and shine.
