Sometimes we have to
LOSE OURSELVES
in order to find
WHO WE REALLY ARE

-Dacian Miron

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. For many are called, but few are chosen.

The Lord said "Gazingstock"

Only the Lord knows the heaviness on my heart this week and the deception within myself that has come to surface.  I don't try to hang out in a place of "pretend" but still often find that reality is much worse than I would like to believe. …

Why Were You So Focused on Josh Living?

A few months ago, I went on a Christian television talk show and was interviewed about the book, "Father Please Let Him Live."  The question was asked of me, "Why were you so focused on Josh living?"  And you know, I struggled to answer it. …

The Heaviness of Me

I fail at so many things.  I look at all the masks that I wear from moment to moment.  Being a wife, a mother, a business professional and my heart's desire to be a child of God - there's a heaviness that seems to always hover above the juggling…

Why did Jesus say the world would hate true followers of Christ?

Jesus said, "The world will hate you because it hated me first."  He told the disciples they would be hated for HIS NAME'S SAKE and he said the time would come when HIS would be kicked out of synagogues (religious assemblies - the congregation)…

The Butterfly.. Thank you Lord

Yesterday is gone, and I'm glad about that.  Sometimes it seems when a truth is opened up to me and I can see a new thing differently than before, a testing of my faith follows that truth on subject of the very thing I've been shown. There…

What does it mean to BELIEVE in Jesus?

This morning the Lord showed me something I'd not seen before, but it's beautiful.  What does it mean to believe in Jesus?  Simple answer - I'm not capable of doing this.  And as a demonstration I put myself up against the disciples.  Needless…

What is Life More Abundantly?

One of the scriptures I see so commonly used in discussing God's will for us is found in John 10:10.  Jesus describes the enemy's task and HIS task with clear separation.  He says, "The thief comes not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:…

Self Love and Self-Made Philosophies VS the Sacrificial Work of God

Last week when I was walking out of Subway, the Lord laid a question on my heart.  "Would you walk through fire to get to me?"  And over the last few days, this has been a lingering subject within my own heart.  Yesterday I just felt this…

The HEART CRY that Opens the Door to Him

One of the words given by Jesus in the book of Revelation - within His messages written TO THE churches that has captivated so many of my thoughts in seeking understanding from the Lord is found in the warnings and instructions for the Church…

The Secret Place

There is a place where time stands still.  There are no elements of heat or cold..  There is no fear or worry.. no sadness or complaint.. no hurt.. no pain.. no heartbreak.  This place doesn't have necessity and the fleshly requirements are…

Struck Down on the Broad Road in order to find THE NARROW PATH

In "Father Please Let Him Live", there was a process that started our journey that continues to be one the most humbling, life-changing, eye-opening experiences of my life.  And I often think about Saul (who later became the Apostle Paul). …

For God So Loved the World.. He Gave us The Way to Be Removed from It

Life is a really disturbing thing, because it lacks meaning.  It's like dedicating all that I am for a race - so that I can win the trophy.  But at the end of that race, looking upon the trophy only brings temporary joy.  It doesn't last. …

May 15th Dream - Out of Time

I was in a deep sleep as I heard the alarm sounding - my cue to wake up.  I knew it was important that I wake up and get ready - I had a flight to catch.  But each time the alarm went off, I ignored it, telling myself that I would sleep for…

We are Heirs with Christ IF we Suffer With Him - Romans 8 - THE WORD OF GOD

I think one of the major turning points in my faith settled in when my Granny got sick. Nothing made sense anymore. If God rewards believers in His Son with health, wealth and prosperity, why would the most unselfish, kind-hearted, God-fearing…

Why Half Truths are So Dangerous to our Faith

I'm in a strange season right now, which could be true of all seasons as we enter into new challenges and walk along new paths.  In recent times I've seen a battle unfolding outwardly and inwardly that has really illuminated some walls that…

Christ is the author and finisher of my faith and my story.

“For those seek to save their lives will lose life and those who lose their lives for my sake will have life eternal” – Christ
