He Answers






I’ve thrown myself  headlong into your arms–
I’m celebrating your rescue.
I’m singing at the top of my lungs,
I’m so full of answered prayers.

Psalms 13:5-6

Today is the day to jump into His arms! He is ready to catch you, rescue you from every heartache.

Today is the day to sing. It’s time to celebrate  all the answered prayers, every one of them.

Go ahead and sing at the top of your lungs!

He has answered my prayer to fill my heart with His presence today. He rescued me from a place of darkness and despair, confusion and hopelessness. He untwisted the web in my mind and lifted me into the light of His love. He filled me up with His heart and His mind, making light illuminate the dark areas so I could see where to go and how to think. He answered my questions, and He continues to answer.

Jump into His arms today with your desires, questions, or heartaches.

He is there for you!


Wake Up

Wake up, Put your face in the sunlight.

God’s bright glory has risen for you.

The whole earth is wrapped in darkness, all people sunk in deep darkness,

But God rises on you, his sunrise glory breaks over you.

Isaiah 60:1-2

The time has come to wake up! Let His light shine on your face, He is sunlight to you. He is your Glory, inside and out.

The earth is darkness, but He is light inside of you. Rise up and let glory shine throughout the darkness.

God rises in you, go today and wrap His light around the darkness until all you see is His light.

Rise up, it’s time to wake up!

God is prompting me to RISE UP, and greet each day with the Light of His face. He is challenging me to look into deeper places, and to see into the hearts of each person I encounter. His Light lives inside of me, therefore He has given me the ability to shine His Light into all dark places. His glory is in you too, and you can go out into the dark world today and shine the Light He has given you into every corner. You can rise up and let His glory break over you so that everywhere you go, there will be Light!

There was a time I lived in darkness, but then He came and wrapped His Light around me, and when His Light is wrapped around the darkness, the darkness cannot prevail!

The Wind


A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death. 

Romans 8:2

The Spirit of God lives within you, His life, is your life. His love, grace, faith, hope, mercy, and His mind belong to you. He is a strong wind within you, moving throughout your family, your community, your city, and your nation.

He is fire, He makes you too hot too handle for evil!  

Let the Wind blow within you and ignite you. Listen to the rustle that it makes, ride it's strength. Feel the warmth from the flame. Be confident in all that you are from the power of life within you. 


The Spirit of God is freedom within the depths of your heart, like a strong wind inside He breaths fire, and you are hot from His flame. The tyranny of bondage cannot stand up against the wind and fire of God's Spirit!

Holy Plans

Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you: A prophet to the nations-that’s what I had in mind for you” 

Jeremiah 1:5

He knows you. You belong to Him, from the moment you were conceived, you have belonged to Him. He shaped you. It was dark in the womb, yet He formed you to see light. He has holy plans for you.

You are Chosen.

His watchful eye is always upon you, caring for you. He knows you, He wants you.

He loves you.

I believe He is working His plan through me everyday. Sometimes, I do not realize the ways He uses me, or speaks life into others through me, His Spirit is active and alive, I am only a vessel. It is my willingness to have His Light and His plans worked out through me that makes it all come to completion. He is holy and He works in wondrous way, even through someone like me, and you!

He chose me. He chose you. It's an amazing deal!
