Trapped and imprisoned yet on the Run to nowhere! So you’ve been there have you? Thrust into the utter depths of ruin and despair for no other reason other than a selfish rebellion that robbed you of your better life, that you once knew? That rebel in you, that you gave consent to, took you to the dead-end of the road and left you beaten at the edge of the cliff and stricken with massive loss! Now you sit in a heaps of stinking garbage and life is so heavy with a heart that’s heavier still!! It’s terrible and the loss has been incredible and so not worth it, but it’s too late to change the fact that it happened, for it surely did and it happened to you. Oh how could rebel ‘Self’ get you into this fix? Hanging over this sharp, dangling edge of abyss, where the darkness is darker than it’s ever been before, where nothing makes any sense any more? Guilt, anger, depression, and all the emotions that come to take over and take you down farther still, all have to have their day with you, and when you try to fight them off you find your fight is weak because your strength has been zapped, and it’s just Way easier to give in to that power that undermines you, than to stay strong! The ‘rebel’ in you seems stronger and just easier to succumb to than your will power and self-discipline to begin to dig out.

And… You wonder, where does it all end? How do I make a comeback and re-surface to the top? Will I ever re-surface? Will I ever again see the light at the end of the tunnel, or is gone forever fallen into that dark abyss that stares at me in the face? oh selfish ‘self’ what have you done?

No Longer Alone
No Longer Alone

Anyone who goes the way of the prodigal, turning a deaf ear to God, in order to find greener pastures in the life they imagine, only finds it to be a self-destructive dream! A dream that quickly accelerates into a nightmare of no escape, where consequences of actions are frightening and difficult to overcome! Maybe you know of a prodigal or live with one and are all too aware of the heartbreak to watch one, where it seems easier to spiral downward than to fight the current and rise up again. One can’t do it alone. Oh Yeah ~ the enemy’s grip is too tight and his web of deceit too binding. His bondage too strong ~ too tough! He lies to your face while he knocks you down and tramples on you while you’re there. Let’s just say he’s not your best friend. Never was! Never will be! Let Him go! But there is no help for the “rebel” you unless you hear God’s words of redemption and seek His face, divine wisdom and His healing counsel.

You Can Overcome this! God's grace miracle is beside you.  Spread your wings and fly.

Psalm 107: 4, 5, 6, 9

“Some wandered in desert wastelands, finding no way to a city where they could settle;
They were hungry and thirsty and their lives ebbed away.
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble and He delivered them from their distress…
He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.”

Psalm 107: 10, 11, 12, 13, 14

“Some sat in darkness and the deepest gloom, prisoners suffering in iron chains,
for they had rebelled against the words of God and despised the council of the Most High.
So He subjected them to bitter labor; they stumbled and there was no one to help.
Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble and He brought them out of their darkness and deepest gloom
and broke away their chains.”

Psalm 107: 17, 19, 20

“Some became fools through their own rebellious ways and suffered affliction through their iniquities…
They cried to the Lord in their trouble and He saved them from their distress. He sent forth His word and He healed them;
He rescued them from the grave.”

Psalm 107: 8, 15, 21

“Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men.”

Unruly Pride

Little Thoughts For Big Days

Don’t you wish you could just drop it at your feet and trample it to mush ~ the pride I mean? That unruly, rascal that keeps resurfacing to the top in your life and leading you astray with it’s deception? What makes it “So There” all the time? Just when you think you’ve beat it, it’s back with a vengeance undermining your desire for humility before God. How do we tell it to get lost and leave us alone? The most amazing thing is that God understands it and it’s plight and best of all He’s willing to keep taking it, helping us with it and helping us reduce it to rubble. Only He can do it though, so don’t forget to ask Him daily to take that unhealthy, unruly pride that just seems to be there! Lay down that rod, that fear of failure, that insecurity, that crutch in your hand, all the subtle elements of pride as well as boastful pride and allow His confidence to rise up within you and move you forward in His divine direction with divine guidance.

Galatians 6: 3
“For if any person thinks himself to be somebody [too important to condescend to shoulder another’s load] when he is nobody [of superiority except in his own estimation], he deceives and deludes and cheats himself.”

Proverbs 3: 5
“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.”

A Defining Moment

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So you’re regretting your past and your failures? If you allow all of that stuff to define who you are, you’ll stand in the way of God using you for His purpose. At God’s command, Moses threw down his rod that defined him as a lowly shepherd, all too aware of his own insecurities, weaknesses and failures. He didn’t want to do what God had for him because he didn’t feel confident enough! When he threw down his rod (His crutch, his control) God took it over and all the insecurities, weaknesses and failures became potential that God used in the life of Moses to lead the complaining, critical Israelites through wilderness wanderings. What’s your crutch, your rod that you hold on to so tightly? Throw it down before God and leave it with Him. Make this a defining moment and rather than hiding behind weaknesses and insecurities see them as powerful potential for God to use!  

Exodus 4: 1-3
“Then Moses said, “What if they will not believe me or listen to what I say? For they may say, ‘The LORD has not appeared to you.'” 2The LORD said to him, “What is that in your hand?” And he said, “A staff.” 3Then He said, “Throw it on the ground.” So he threw it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from it.…

Joy For The Broken Heart

How does this day begin for you? With a brokenheart, tainted with disappointment because all that you’ve believed for and trusted for has once again been shattered and not only left you crushed but robbed you of any confidence that you might have had left?   The enemy wants nothing more than for you to feel defeated helpless and hopeless! He’ll grind you into the ground if you succumb to his lies.   Don’t go there, rather say with the Psalmist, “But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.” Psalm 3:3


Good therapy?  Sing a new song, even if it’s difficult to sing…just begin and feel the joy resurface and the trust slowly return, for yet again another day on this journey.  Friends, It’s how we keep preserving in the faith and coming out on top!

Psalm 28:7
“The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.”
