I will never forget the summer my parents lent me their ocean front condominum for several months so that in the words of my father, “we will see this summer if you have the discipline to be a writer.” I will never remember that summer because of all the writing I did, because what stands out above all else is that I sacrificed my writing…

“O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvelous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.” Psalm 98:1 KJVAmid a night of so much tossing and turning I am surprised I was not seasick, I managed to sleep just long enough last evening for the Lord to put a new song in my heart with…

When God told me He wanted me to sacrifice my husband and marriage, I held onto a seed of hope that God would return to me my sacrifice just as He gave Abraham back the sacrifice of his son Isaac. But yesterday as the man I married piled into his pickup, drove himself to the country county courthouse, and stood before a judge to divorce…

When God takes you to a new level, or a new land, get ready. Fasten your seatbelt, say your prayers, and make absolutely certain you are studying and applying His Word. Why?

I remember the day I finally realized I am a daughter of the most high God. I was exhilarated – beyond description.

James 1:17 KJV “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”I met her in the soup kitchen. Winter. Cold. So cold. Cold for South Carolina anyway. She had her little girl bundled up next to her; glued to her side like a rag doll. Eight months…

But then God interrupted. “What you’ve done,” He interjected, “is you’ve decided to follow me.” Like so many fellow believers, I have mistakenly believed that following Christ means life will get easier not harder.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, He is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17If you are in Christ, you are a new creature, right? If old things are passed away, then all things are become new, right? As I lay prostrate on the floor today before the Lord, I repented for holding onto…
