A Splash of Rejuvenation

A Splash of Rejuvenation

Hi Friend, I’m wondering if you’re in need of a fresh word today. Maybe a little splash of rejuvenation after a long week? If you’re like me, the past several days have been packed full with too many assignments, errands, deadlines and responsibilities. I always look forward to the weekends, don't you?

Can You Hear Me Now?

Can You Hear Me Now?

Is it really possible to hear God’s voice? To know when He is speaking to me? Maybe you’ve heard someone say, “the Lord told me … “ or “I’ve sensed the Lord saying … to my heart” and it’s made you wonder if you could discern God’s voice too. Have you ever had thoughts like these: How do I know for sure God is speaking to me? Maybe it's just a random thought in my mind? What if I make a decision based on what I think God is telling me and then find out later I was wrong … then what? If Continue reading
