Swirling

I’ve always been made for the waters. This season of encounters with Jesus – just so deep and so still and so peace. Not a conscious revelation or vision. Sinking in the ocean. Feeling the waves wash over. His presence like a pleasant, yet dizzying, wave flowing over your body and your brain. All the … More Swirling

2017

Moments from 2017 I want to remember. Disclaimer just for myself: This is not an exhaustive list. Starting the first minutes of the year, curled up on the floor with Pancake, stupidly wearing matching outfits and laughing at life in general. The heart-wrenching pain of saying goodbye to Mum and Blade at the security gate, … More 2017

Hear

“The Heavens are roaring the praise of your glory” Have you stopped and listened to that sound recently? If you’re in Christ, you’re seated in Heavenly places, so you can listen in. You can use those redeemed eyes and see God’s Kingdom. You were made to hear God. It makes a great theme for a … More Hear

So This is Love

A song my heart started singing right after graduation. He whispered “Abide” and my heart started to learn to snuggle up to my Daddy. I lay on the floor in the middle of a school cafeteria  and my heart met my Marmee for the first time. “Hello Holy Spirit. I’m Terah. Who are you?” I … More So This is Love

You Came

“Oh Holy Night, the stars are brightly shining. It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining, Till He appeared, and the soul felt its worth! A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices! Yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.” The King to a Babe. … More You Came

Dream Come True

As a child, my heart had this deep ache. I was in love with Jesus and knew that “Jesus loves me. . .” but my heart was aching for more. I looked at my church and my experience with Jesus and I knew this couldn’t be all there was. I couldn’t explain it or define … More Dream Come True
