LIVING FROM ABOVE: THE HIGHER LIFE

LIVING FROM ABOVE: THE HIGHER LIFE

  I pray you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and it was filled with peace, health, and laughter. Today’s blog is written to shed light on the struggles we have internally as we discern the many voices, emotions, and thoughts bombarding us each day.     Isaiah Chapter 55, verse 9 came to my heart this week, and I want to explore its meaning considering our relationship with our Father. The Lord said:   “For as the heavens are HIGHER than the…

UNVEILING ETERNAL LIFE

UNVEILING ETERNAL LIFE

  He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted ETERNITY [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end. Ecclesiastes 3:11 (Amplified)     The Book of Ecclesiastes Chapter 3, verse eleven, has been on my heart for a few days. As I reflected…

When we returned home, my husband lavished me with two dozen roses, clothes, and a card.     My precious sister Diane made me one of my favorite cakes. I also received gifts…

LOVE OF THE FATHER

LOVE OF THE FATHER

  See what an incredible quality of love the Father has shown to us, that we would [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the Children of God! And so, WE ARE! For this reason, the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.    2 Beloved, we are [even here and] now Children of God, and it is not yet made clear what we will be [after His coming]. We know that when He comes and is…

WE ARE RICH BEYOND MEASURE

WE ARE RICH BEYOND MEASURE

Have you ever heard of Iraan Texas? If not let me tell you about it. The town of Iraan was named after Ira and Ann Yates. They were poor herders who lived outside of Pecos, Texas. The land they lived on was not fertile enough to grow crops, so they herded sheep and other livestock.     They struggled year after year to keep their small parcel of land from going into foreclosure. Their land was barren and unprofitable, as…
