Recovery from Hate

Hate is a drug. Hate is so addictive nothing else matters. We cannot see our addiction or acknowledge it. We do not understand we have a problem nor that we are addicted. Hate becomes more important to us than family or job or sanity or God. We need a twelve step program, but we must […]

He Lifts Me

God is my Shepherd, my Healer, my Comforter, my Teacher, my Light, my Father, my Elder Brother, my Provider. I have no want for anything beyond Him. He provided a desired haven for me with an arbor of trees around me, lush plants on my deck, and causes me to sit there quietly in repose, […]

Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a gift for me It sits collecting dust unopened until I’m ready It’s benefits to trust And let the Spirit set me free, keep heart and mind focused on God’s love, stronger than my own through grace, His cornerstone.   Forgiveness is God’s whole embrace We get it and must give the grace […]

Three Ways We Know the Truth

1.“If you hear My voice and abide in My words, you are truly My disciples; you will know the truth, and that truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32) These precious days we have on earth, as we scramble to discern the truth from alternative facts, we have an Internal Guide who helps us in this winnowing […]

A Fearless Moral Inventory

“He wanted her to move out of the lie, into authenticity, but first she had to admit to how she was living her life. People in recovery would call it taking a thorough and fearless moral inventory and then sharing that with another person. Jesus offered himself as a loving listener, a no-judging ear He […]

Dear Lilka, (June 6, 2017)

“’Even in our sleep pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart until in our own despair against our will comes wisdom from the awful grace of God.’  What we need in the United States is not division, what we need in the United States is not hatred, what we need in […]

Yes, It’s Love

As I attempt to determine amidst disorganization how to keep my thoughts on you, Lord, it’s just to you my heart is moored: adoration.   When Satan gains we see no light that’s visible to guide, unite. This circumstance calls for our trust, our patience and our refocused views from God’s sight.   While Jesus […]

Home, Sweet Home

“I don’t have to fully write my private story. It’s being written with me and in me. I am already a character on the stage. I am being used, I am being chosen, I am being led. [I am] both the agony and the ecstasy of God that is happening inside, and all [I] can […]
