1 Kings 19:12 (NLT) “And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper.”
Have you ever had the experience of hearing God speak to you but only you could hear it? It wasn’t a clap of thunder or a surround-sound rumble, but a quiet voice, and you just knew in your spirit that it was Him? In the bible, God speaks in a thunderous sound, a whirlwind, and also loud enough for all to hear as He did at Jesus’ baptism (Luke 3:21). The bible tells us that He also speaks in a whisper, one on one, as described in 1 Kings 19:12. Continue reading In a Quiet Voice

1 Peter 5:7 (NLT) “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”
A few weeks ago, I was once again reminded that God cares about my cares. For some reason I was feeling very heavy in an emotional way and I could not shake it. I did not quite know why I felt the way I was feeling because there was so much on my mind.

I attended prayer meeting and appreciated the message and I did feel a bit lighter, but not completely. When I left church, I planned to go to the gas station then to the grocery store. Between the gas station and the grocery store, I learned, via text, that my Uncle Archie passed away. Confusion washed over me and I didn’t know if I should still go to the store. My stern inner voice said, “Your life didn’t stop. You still need to go to the store for fruit and vegetables.” Continue reading He’s Got You!
2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT) “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”
This morning I dropped off two of my children at a meeting point to take a trip with a group from our church to New Jersey. As I drove away from the drop off point, I began to experience a fear of something tragic happening. I started to feel scared of something over which I have no control. I said to myself, “even if you were driving them, you’d have no control over someone hitting your car and causing an accident. You have to let go of this irrational fear!” Continue reading Fear Not!
