A Note From A Reader

A Note From A Reader

A writer loves to hear from their readers, and I’m no exception. When I was at the Christian Writers Conference in Fort Scott recently, I met a new friend, Maranatha. She bought one of my God’s Little Miracle Books to use as a devotional to start the day with her homeschooled kids. I received an email from her recently which read: Dear Sally, I just wanted to pop in and say your first book on miracles is proving to be…

Look to me; remember those yet to come who’ll stand in our stead and march to the drum 0f a land established for God’s…

Money Matters

Money Matters

  Hebrews 13:5 Let your character be free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” We each one have a choice. We can love God or we can love money and what it can buy. Money and goods are temporary, fleeting. Money can be here today and gone tomorrow. Things can burn in a fire or thieves can steal them….

Holy Spirit Coaching

  Job 39:22 (God said) “He laughs at fear and is not dismayed; and he does not turn back from the sword.” Here God tells Job how He has made the horse a very powerful animal, and yet, after training, a very useful instrument for specific purposes. The one spoken of here must be a war horse. He has been taught not to fear. When he sees and hears a battle, he is not terrified. He doesn’t turn tail and…

God’s Promise

God’s Promise

Isaiah 60:15 Whereas you have been forsaken and hated with no one passing through, I will make you an everlasting pride, a joy from generation to generation. Have you ever felt God has abandoned you? That He has forgotten your name? That you no longer matter to Him? If so, take heart. This scripture is for you. Even from the first word, “whereas” this is meant to encourage you. “Whereas” carries a meaning of “being burdened, oppressed, in subjection or…

When in High Waves

When in High Waves

Matthew 14:27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them saying, “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.” Jesus directed His disciples to row across the Sea of Galilee at sundown while He stayed behind to pray. After they had rowed for many hours in contrary winds they were worn ragged. Between three and six in the morning, they saw something coming toward them and were terrified. They thought it was a ghost. Jesus called to them to take courage;…

My place of Safety

My place of Safety

Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defense of my life; whom shall I dread? The Lord is my light, my instruction. He rescues me. He is my place of safety, my victory. The existing One, the God who created the universe, is for me. I have no reason to be in dread of anything. He delivers me. He is my protector, my stronghold, my safe harbor. He takes…

Our Unique God

Our Unique God

Isaiah 64:4 For from of old they have not heard nor perceived by ear, neither has the eye seen a God besides Thee, who acts in behalf of the one who waits for Him. Of all the world religions of all the ages, there is no God who forgives sins, who came to earth to tell us of the One True God, who offered His own self on a cross as payment for our sins, and then died. But there…

Trust in the Lord

Trust in the Lord

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. Have you ever been brought to a place or circumstance that you were at a loss to know what to do or say? As if you were up against a brick wall and you were stuck in forward gear? Everything in you screams, “There is no way out! We’re going down!” Stop. Remember you are not alone. The One who promised to…

God’s Dynamite

God’s Dynamite

II Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. Another word for “timidity” is “cowardice” or “fearfulness.” God gives us holy boldness. This word “power” is “dynamis” from which we derive our word “dynamite.” It refers to strength and ability, a power which resides within itself. God gives us His power to perform miracles and to have moral power and excellence of soul. It’s that kind of power which…
