“The most important conversation you will have . . .”

We don’t pray to center ourselves or to seek something from the universe. We pray to talk to our Heavenly Father and to receive of Him in our lives. We pray one on One because we are His children; because we are in a covenant relationship that allows us to cry out, “Abba, Father!” (Galatians 4:6), making my conversation with God my most important conversation of the day.

Devotion – Dealing with Failure

God specializes in fixing the broken and healing what others thought was impossible. Trust Him with everything that is bothering you and let Him work it out.

dealing with failure

I don’t know about you but have failed at so many things in life.  If I would begin to go down the list and check off all the goof-ups, blunders, and short-comings it would tell a story most don’t get to see on the outside.  In every area of life, be it marriage, raising children, my relationship with God, or whatever – there is a mark of imperfection there, a blemish on my record.

Failure is one of those things that are hard to overcome for some.  Mess-ups have a way of smearing defeat in one’s face making them feel that there will never be a space for recovery and restoration.

The children of Israel had a propensity of straying from the will of God and messing up on several occasions (actually more than several but who are we to judge).  Knowing their history, when Solomon was praying at the…

Words to Live By – “God Calms the Storm”

“He calms the storm, so that its waves are still. Then they are quiet; so He guides them to their desired haven,” Psalm 107:29-30, NKJV. In life, we face many challenges and ugliness that will try to rise up against what God wants you to do and where God wants to lead you. Trust Him to guide you through the storm and to make them be quiet before you.  Don’t forget to thank Him for the wonderful works He does in your life, Psalm 107:31.




“I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth,” Genesis 9:13

I remember a few years ago, I woke up the morning feeling, well . . . .  blah!!!  I had a headache, no energy, not feeling really with it.  It was a hard week and it was taking its toll on my body.  Since I have some days like that this week I decided to write about it again.

I remember I was looking for something to wear and I reached into my closet and pulled out a white shirt (black and white shirts are a standby for me because they usually don’t have to be ironed 🙂 – telling on myself, I know).  But, even though it didn’t need to be ironed, I put it back declaring, in my dreariness, that I needed a pop of color.

As I was going through the drudgery of ironing my pop of color I wondered to myself if that’s why God made His covenant with Noah and all the earth in the form of a rainbow.  After the rains and the storms of life, after the hardships and turmoils, after being tossed about to and fro, maybe we all need that “PROMISE IN A POP OF COLOR!”

We all need that beautiful colorful, covenant to gaze upon to let us know that everything is going to be alright.

Today, we are nearing the end of the week.  And, if your week has been like mine I send out to you this “PROMISE IN A POP OF COLOR!”  God is letting us know, EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT! 

God bless you!

Have ever awakened to turn on the news only to hear of some horrific event that has taken place?  Upon hearing it, have you ever had the urge to run to the scene of said event to try to do something; to want to help someone and get the situation back in order?

Me too.

Often, among the devastation, life can make us feel as though we are limited in our options to do something.  But, the fact of the matter is you can do something.   Something that most count as the last option should actually be the first.


Prayer is powerful!  Prayer is authoritative!  And, prayer works!

“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus,” Philippians 4:6-7.

NOTHING is out of the scope of God’s reach.  The worse world events can be made tame under the hand of a Sovereign God if He so wills.

Confident prayer that He hears and is able, makes a difference in life’s circumstances.  “If we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us,” 1 John 5:14.

You can do something.  To some, it may seem a trivial thing, but there is real power in prayer.  Who knows what you can change when you approach Him with a heart that wants to intercede on behalf of others.

Be blessed.
