December 14, 2016 will vs expectation 


God with us. Set your will in His. 

“When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth, for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will declare to you the things that are to come.” John‬ ‭16:13‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Good morning, Beloved. 

We focus on the Christ child. The birth we celebrate this season is the marking point of being shifted. If you dared to be so brave, you brave soul, you would admit that you, too, have felt Him stir. 

Allow Him to have His way, (as Mary did),

and will His way into being (like Joseph). 

The Holy Spirit comes and plants seeds of sparks, seeds of possible, not impossible…and He guides you and me with authority. 

Alone, I would go cold. 

Or, laugh you off at the audacity. 

Or, hide away. 

‘Expectation’ is not confirmation of what is to come. It’s not manifestation of an expected end. It’s a distraction, really. 

A distraction from today. 

But, ‘will’, ‘will’ is different. 

Because, will happens when you choose to fully show up in today, as Mary and Joseph did, you focus on the give, not the get. It doesn’t really matter that the meeting went off track, or that the outcome was … different (it created a new beginning). The net gain of a new perspective, of the shift is this:

show up,



move on. 

Lay down the expectation, and feel the shift.

Anxiety drains away. 

Streaming calm fills in. Shifted. 

Expectations shrink me from God’s best for me. They weigh me down with worry and formulas and analyses, ‘if/then’, and ‘what/if’s’. 

But, God’s will be done … there’s my paintbrush,

my oil,

my secret potion,

my sanity. 

Like Mary and Joseph … I’m most interested the power of will, His planted sparks, His best that is lying in front of me. 

What expectations are consuming your shine? Let them go. 

Let them go. 

Wake up. 

Will His way in you. 

(Thy will be done).

April 26, 2016 ten new


“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew‬ ‭5:16‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Good morning BlessedOne.
Think about this day and as you prepare – ask your Creator’s blessing to cover it. Give the hours of this day YOUR blessing, too. 

You have a Divine role to play as you will experience all brand new minutes. You will see brand new colors, behaviors, have new talks with others, and with yourself. Find new experiences. 

Find new blessings in what would otherwise be regular, ordinary, mundane. 

Open yourself up to changes that the Holy Spirit is orchestrating in you. 

Thank Him for your gifts, 

for your creativity, 

for allowing you a chance to share with those you love. Celebrate your own creativity today – fresh ideas … all gifts from God Most High. He has empowered you with specific gifts to give that can only go through you … things you don’t see – 

like the power of your smile, 

the touching of a hand, 

a simple kind word. 

You don’t realize your power on others – you are a channel of His Holiness; ask Him to pour ten new gifts into you – and ask your Maker to make them invisible to you but for these new gifts to be a blessing to others …


and gentle, 

and needed. 

Wake up. 

Open up. 

Receive more of Him with gentle intention.

April 21, 2016 still


“Lord God of Hosts, who is strong like You, Lord? Your faithfulness surrounds You. You rule the raging sea; when its waves surge, You still them.” Psalms‬ ‭89:8-9‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
Hello, MightyOne,

Years ago I made a list of my life’s years and wrote down the best and most significant event I could remember of each year. It was humbling. Looking back over the list, I was struck by the fact that nearly everything on the list had turned out for my good, yet was directly or indirectly the result of some failure, or loss, or disappointment that made me look at my situation differently. In hind site, nearly everything that I considered at the time to be loss turned out to be the loss of an old way of life that was in process of gaining something new. It seemed at the time of each juncture, that my God was out of the picture, nowhere to be found, far, far away … when actually, He was closer than ever … just simply coming in from a different direction. Unexpected. The emptiness of the time was an emptying of old patterns and habits and trains of thought that He used for me to see that the road I was on was no longer working to serve Him. 

He revealed new. 




He gave new guidance to yield more promising results. And, He developed in me a sense of trust, deeper than ever, that sealed in His boldness and empowerment to follow Him into uncharted territory. 

I still add to that list every single year. And, His work in our lives still comes from every possible surprising direction. He blows my mind. His faithfulness overwhelms me. 
Wake up. 

He’s closer than you think. 

Be bolder.

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.

December 7, 2015 grasp


“The Lord is the One who will go before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid or discouraged.” ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭31:8‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Good morning, LovedOne,

Your Creator says “My child, My love for you won’t walk out, fail, or ever come to an end.” Earth is a strange place to be for our soul. It is strange to be here. The mystery of longing to be “back home”, in the presence of God Most High never leaves. Behind our face, below the draft of our words, above every thought, the silence of another world, our true home, awaits. The sacred duty of our days is to simply learn how to live so we are more and more aware of His grasp. His presence leads us home. 

Wake up. 

Feel His grasp.

November 4, 2015 opps


“For this is our confidence: The testimony of our conscience is that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you, with God-given sincerity and purity, not by fleshly wisdom but by God’s grace.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:12‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
Good morn, SincereOne,

Looking for new opportunities? Do you want your life to take a turn for the better … but, your rotten choices of the past keep haunting, and the ‘better’ just hasn’t shown its face yet. Never mind that. Get your affairs in order so you are ready to move when the opportunity strikes. Stay on point and be ready to spring into action. Do what you promised you would do. Why? 

Because, you have been called by the Maker of the Universe to bring your worthwhile purpose into this life. 

Worthwhile purpose = game face. 

Get your game face on. 

So, just maybe that means it’s time to shake free from the unworthy time-sucker stuff you’re doing ad interim. 

Send the enemy a clear signal that YOU. ARE. READY. And, available for where The Most High desires for you to shine. 

Clear your calendar, FaithfulOne. 

Clear your desk. 

Clear your barn. 

Make room for inspiration to enter – and then strike while red-hot. 

Just because the desire of your heart did not show up yesterday, and has not shown yet today, doesn’t mean you should just fill the empty space while waiting for its arrival. Prepare.

Tiny nudges are moving you in the direction of His desire/your desire. 

Baby steps count.

An “in the meantime” mindset can be a lethal compromise. Be smart. Take care of business. Be responsible. 

Write the letter.

Play the notes.

Dial the number.

Keep the bills paid up. 

Practice, push harder. 

Let the rush of elation open you fully to His call to move. 

God honors your integrity when you are responsible with the opportunities He gives you. And, He leads you to opportunities that are greater still. Grace. 

Wake up. 

Do the responsible things first.

September 25, 2015 deep water



 ‘He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.’   Isaiah 9:6b HCSB

Good morn, PeacefulHeart,

Do you know what thrills me to no end about God’s children? Their deep-lake peace. 

Let me explain. No one in human skin is exempt from drama. Surface drama. Excitement, disappointment, chaos, and every emotion known to man. The outer edges of our daily behavior is based on the “deal” going on today in our life … our ‘mindset of the moment’. Whatever happens there, on the fringe, is like the surface of a lake – sometimes dead calm, sometimes windy and rough. Cycles and seasons and egos and drama come and go and influence the surface. Those who have given their hearts to Christ find that deep down – the lake is undisturbed. Peaceful even. No matter the white-caps, the Creator has your resting place ready and available and accessible. 

As a child of the living God, you are the whole lake – in touch with the depth of the Prince of Peace, which remains absolutely still. We abide in His unchanging, timeless, deathless presence. Our surface fluctuates – plays, experiences, creates and dabbles in continuous drama … God gets that, He lived in skin for a while on earth, too. But, the only requirement you and I have as His children is to attach ourselves to His navigation through the waters to our eternity. Mm. Yeah. Rest there. No matter the storm, go deep in His peace. 

Wake up. 
Wear Him as your life-jacket.

September 14, 2015 let it rain


September 14, 2015 

“Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures.” ‭‭James‬ ‭1:17-18‬ ‭MSG‬‬

Good morning, River of Light,

Rain makes me giddy! You, too? Even on Monday morn; the cleansing and rebirth that rain brings to nature absorbs into the soles of our feet muddy with rich soil, hair smelling like pond water; where freshly laundered creation is cause for celebration. Much like the third day from the cross. Transformed. Renewed. 

It is from this place that we step into our day clothes, into our ‘busy’ from that wildish place … to be present to the customer, or the hammer, or the stove, or the child, or the data screens. We breathe the Wild of the freshly poured Holy Spirit into our decisions, the work of our heart and our hands, our plans, our classes, our industry, our responsibilities. He sustains all worlds. He whispers His ways to us in and out of our minutes. His Spirit courses and calls us and His responsible ones follow. Our River of Life rushes, then slows to make sure we are coming, He pauses in still waters to allow us to catch up – and sets the flow again. He has something to show us. Many things. Renewed. 

Wake up. 

Let it rain.

August 27, 2015 authenticity


 “God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son he loves so much, the Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.” ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:13-14‬ ‭MSG‬‬ 

 Hello, RescuedOne,

My3sunz give their mom a real hard time about how much I use my favorite word… “authentic”. It makes me grin just to say the word. Here’s the deal: my walk is one-of-a-kind, just like yours. Having been rescued from the darkness, Christ has taught me that when I stay the course of His truth, and support others in doing the same with their one-of-a-kind Christ walk, I prosper in every way that peace can be delivered. 

You may be way overdue to to get your fire lit. Make a list of 5 traits about a yourself you like (if you can’t think of 5, then fill in with traits you’d hope to gain … I guarantee they are already there). 

Now, read back over your list. Pause on each long enough to feel it radiate through your body. There you go. There’s the base of where Christ is expanding in you and raising you out of a dark dungeon. Thank Him for that. Feel His power course through your veins.  

You’re ready to go. 

Wake up. 

Enjoy authenticity.

August 20, 2015 Galactic stuff


“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.” Hebrews‬ ‭10:23‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Hello, Faith-filledOne,

I’m thankful to live in the country. It would shut me down to step out every morning and not be able to see the stars each day when I put my weenie dog, Ellie, out. Even with cloud cover, well- even in daylight, just because we can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Some nights we can see thousands, even then we know there are billions more that we cannot see. I suppose then, that we are always looking at billions. We have physical limitations, so we simply can’t perceive all of the stars that are out there. A telescope would help bring into focus what has been there in the sky all along – what you are already looking at. But, distance and galactic stuff get in the way. 

Spirituality is the much same way. The Holy Spirit is at work and the naked eye deceives you. There is so much going on in your struggle that you cannot see (and in others -expansion that is meant for them, you’re just a cast member that will grow in the process, too). Hidden growth, yet-to-be revealed insights, spiritual things, eternal things. Faith. Setting your heart in the place of faith is like using binoculars on a clear night. Faith gives sight into the hidden places, tapping in to extra strength to do the impossible. 

Wake up.

Set your faith.
