“He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.”  Psalm 18:16 “Send thine hand from above; rid me, and delivered me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children.”  Psalm 144:7 “Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.

“I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, I will hold thine hand, and I will keep thee. …Behold the former things are come to pass and the new things do I declare before they spring forth I tell you of them.”  Isaiah 42:6-9   I knew the Lord had told me that He would allow me to experience days of Heaven upon the earth, that I would be able to say that I have seen a glimpse of Heaven and it is glorious.

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about a dear pastor of a Church I visited several times.  He made an impression on me.

But it’s […]

I immediately began to pray this prayer for my husband and me.  Our life was such a mess at that time, like a cluttered closet.  I didn’t know where to start and he wasn’t interested at all in cleaning closets. I had heard the old saying that prayer changes things, so I began to pray and trust God to clean out our cluttered closets. Today, 20 years later, as I […]

“This is my resting place forever.” (Psalms 132:14) Would you like to find a restful place that is quiet and peaceful, but more than that, a place where you can experience the presence of God? According to Psalm 132:14, God has established resting places, literal places that are His resting places.  God is calling each of us to find a quiet place, a resting place where we can get alone to spend time with Him.  In the story of Noah, when the world was destroyed by the flood, the first thing Noah did was send a dove out to find […]
