Anticipating Heaven

Today I am anticipating so many things. Finishing some things on our house. Moving day. Baby Nine’s arrival. Heaven. Wait a second, did you read that right? Yes, indeed: you did. I said heaven. I suppose heaven is something that most Christians would say they anticipate, but today I am anticipating it in a particular […]

my vineyard

Published by under Beloved,Faith,Hosanna

This morning in church, I sang a meditation based on Habakkuk 3:17-19. The Scripture reads, “Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the […]

Praying, IV

Published by under Faith,Hosanna,Quotes

Beware in your prayer, above everything, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can do. Expect unexpected things, above all that we ask or think. Each time you intercede, be quiet first and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, of how He […]

2 Timothy 1:7 God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. Oh God, allow us not to give in to a spirit of fear, but give us power by Your Spirit, love beyond measure, and self-control that we can not explain. Please fill us with Yourself and take […]

Psalm 115:3 Our God is in the heavens; He does all that He pleases. Oh God who lives and reigns in heaven — be pleased to shower Your mercy and covenantal love upon us. Be pleased to grant life to our tiny child, and be pleased to show your miraculous works to the nations! Isaiah […]

Praying

Published by under Faith,Hosanna

As we go to war as the body of Christ, praying for the life of the baby in my womb — and as we anticipate the news on Thursday of whether the doctors are right or whether God is going to prove them majestically wrong — I want to share verses with you that are […]
