Glimmers of heaven

I used to wonder about the darkness. I was obsessed with how it consumed some people and transformed them into cold cruelty, unyielding hardness. The answers settled into my bones as shadows, textures of despair- thick hopelessness, futility like a fog. What’s the point of shining in this world? Now I wonder about the light. […]

Never look back …

Loneliness is just God’s way of keeping you all to Himself. He’s like a child, who doesn’t want to share His favorites. Who else can you turn to when darkness closes in and no one’s in sight? It’s all part of His master plan … He wants to be the only shiny thing you can imagine. He wants you […]

Learning to shine from within

When are you going to realize? It’s not your job to scurry around, grasping at glints of vanishing light- The Kingdom lies within. A radiant, beaming presence – the simple answer to your prayers – is waiting patiently inside, for you to acknowledge Him. When will you allow Him to rise up from within you? […]

Encouragement to remember who you are

Believe it or not, You are made in the image and likeness of our Creator. You are Light. You are Love. You are Beauty. You are Truth. And You are WAY more powerful than you think. There will always be shadows, temptations like rain clouds knocking at your door- but You get to decide if you let them […]

Peacemaker’s prayer

Into the darkness of a world divided by hatred, give me the courage to carry Your light. Radiate Your truth so brightly through me that I can’t help but cast out lies. Ignite the fire of Your love so boldly in me that I leave trails of freedom, wherever I go.   In Jesus name, […]

Claiming the light

I know it’s easier for you to splatter black paint on me than it would be to accept the oil spill that your life has become. I also know I’m kind, quick to forgive and strong enough to scrape your darkness off me- without complaining too much. But the truth is: I am not a […]

Purification prayer

Jesus, You are perfect love. I want you to know I am willing to walk through the fire for You. Refine me. Melt away every darkness that stops me from allowing You to work freely in my life- Purify my will, desires, intellect, imagination and memories … meld me to Your designs. I invite the fire of […]

Prism prayer

Lord, I invite You to pour a steady stream of Your Radiant Light into my soul. I welcome Your Pristine Spirit to shine always through my words, actions, prayers, and presence. I want to be a prism of Your Glory in the world. Please allow all the colors of Your love to flow freely through […]

Training opportunities

Thank you for casting so much darkness at me. If you hadn’t been so relentless, I wouldn’t have called forth so much Light. Now I shine like the noonday sun, and your shadows can’t come near me. I forgive you and will pray for you always.     Related Scripture Psalm 37:6 “He will make your […]
