Soul Soothe

So the journey is long and unsettled and the doubts are large and looming. Fear lurks in the little corners of your world, nipping joy in the bud or maybe aggressively approaches without warning, sideswiping you blindfolded if it fails to hit head on! Yet, here you sit on another day of trying to get it together ~ making decisions and hoping for right ones. Friends are like Job’s friends, probably best if they would remain silent or at least offer some sort of tangible encouragement. It seems like you just dealt with “that” and now “this.” World news is anything but good and your news? well ~ let’s just say you could do with a little bit better deal than what was just dealt! Where on this whole wide earth is life going and where is it taking you?

Remember the same God that spoke peace and calmed the wild waters and stilled the pounding sea speaks a sweet, gentle peace into your frightening moments and upheaveled uneasiness to calm and soothe your soul and smooth the trouble! So beautiful you ~ take heart and let God take control of this moment, the next, and the next and the day ahead.

Mark 4: 39
“When Jesus woke up He rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence, be still.” Suddenly the wind stopped and there was a great calm.”
So have faith today in the One who has authority over the wind and the waves and has you and has your stuff and has your back and has you covered. There’s hope there and peace there for those in need.

Miracles Through Complexities


So have you some things coming at you that you wish weren’t. They’re coming from all directions and it’s shaping up to be a hassled week with difficult things to face. Oh, they’re not really even that hard, but for you they are because it’s your story and your story has nooks and crannies that others might not even know nor care about. Know, this beautiful soul; God’s presence goes before you today, tomorrow and the week ahead and paves the way for your difficult moments. He’s not leaving you to face it on your own or to walk your path of distress, alone. No! Not even for a moment is He doing that. For your anxieties, He’s got peace. For the blues, He’s got Hope! For the doubts, He’s got promises! For our weaknesses, He’s got strength. For our failures He got grace and for our insecurities He’s got confidence and unconditional love that reaches to the lowest depths of our feelings to lift us into the highest heights of the heavenlies. That’s pretty awesome to thing about. So think on it today as you ponder the days ahead. He’s got it! He’s got it all; your next moment, your day, the week ahead and He might not send a burning bush or a parted Red Sea as such, but He will indeed speak over you and bless you with divine guidance if you wait on Him, and walk on faithfully. So persevere through the difficult, faithful one, and watch His mighty hand work His miracles through your complexities!

Let Healing Arise

So there’s a whole bunch of us going through a whole lot of hard stuff and tough seasons and a whole bunch of us needing a glimmer of hope for the unknown road ahead, because our humanness can’t see beyond what the eye sees. It can’t see the good in the bad or the joy in the sorrow ~ or the win in the loss, or the baby step forward in the giant step backward. But God does and He knows the end from the beginning and as He waves us on to the finish line of the hard season, He promises rest for the weary and peace for our souls. So, for now, you and I and we and us, let His grace embrace and His mercy catch us in the cross-fire of battle with the enemy. Lean in strong on His strength alone! Stand fast and stand firm in the faith and unshakeable in the Truth. Let hope and healing rise in your soul! Your miracle awaits! ~k

Timeless Hope

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

1 Peter 1:24-25
“For all men are like grass, and their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever.”

The lush greens that graced the trees of our glorious, Canadian summer have wrapped themselves in the colour of death as they fall to the ground. The lovely, floral blooms that once graced the garden have bowed their heads in submission to Jack frost and their once beautiful statures now stand curled and gnarled. Beauty fades! Youth ages! Strength wanes! Bodies deteriorate! Riches tarnish! Success passes! Friends leave! Possessions break and popularity dies! All humanity is mortal and fleeting and all of our material strivings eventually come to an end at the end of our road, or maybe even before. In what then, do we put our Hope? In what then do we put our Trust? I Peter 1: 24, 25 quotes old Testament, Isaiah 40:6-8 and gives clear encouragement that God’s Word remains steadfast and His work prevails. Time does not limit Him from carrying out His plan for a lost world. We must put our Hope and trust in an Everlasting God whose plan of salvation reaches to save the lost and whose words will remain powerful when all of creation bows to His sovereignty.

Isaiah 40: 6-8
“All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field.
the grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.”
