A warm welcome to you! Thank you for stopping by. As you read through my pages, I believe you will find that I am just like you—a woman who loves the Lord and cherishes His grace. And, like you, I sometimes grow weary from the journey. I have experienced many difficult places in my life—a brother’s suicide, my mom’s young death, cancer, a prodigal child, extensive unemployment. There have been times when I thought I couldn’t go on. But, God…don’t you love that? But God carried me through and opened my eyes to see Him in my midst. He opened my ears to hear His sweet whispers of love.

Take hope in the knowledge that you are cherished by the One who made you—you are sheltered in the shadow of His wing, close to His heart. It is my prayer that as we get to know one another you, too, will see beyond the veil and will learn to say, “Even so, I walk in the Presence of the Lord”

With joy,
Nan

God Speaks to Us Out of The Night of The Soul

It is said, “The darkest hours of night are just before the dawn.”

Perhaps that’s because of the contrast between dark and light. The contrast emboldens the darkness yet welcomes the inevitable light. That fine line between despair and hope. The bridge of reassurance across the abyss of brokenness.

And in that moment of darkest night the soul wrestles with simply giving up. Giving in. And the forces of hell come against the child of God because the enemy knows the breakthrough is coming.

When God Races Upon the Wind to Save His Child

As I peered out the window toward the setting sun, the wall of clouds darkened, shadowed by the twilight. The wind began to rise. There was a surging now — an urgency — like dust billowing and swirling around stampeding hooves.

I could sense God’s Presence. His protective watchcare. Even with trepidation building in my heart, I knew I was not alone. God was with me just as He has been with me through the storms of brokenness that swirl and billow across my weary spirit.

How May I Be a Giver of God’s Love in 2017?

I pray for those who feel stagnant in their purposes — weary in their well-doings. Empower them with a fresh anointing of Your sweet Holy Spirit. Unleash Your power and strength within them. Give them boldness to serve, courage to follow You, and compassion to love those who we think least deserve it.

Help us love with unconditional and complete love. Regardless. Help us love like Jesus — sacrificially, purely, and consistently from a place of total abandon to You. We want to represent You well — to be Your hands and feet, Your voice. We want to be a giver of Your love.

The Fragrance of Life Emerges From the Broken Places

Life began to stir. Slow at first. Gentle. An awakening — a response to the appointed time. An embryo of wheat began its growth and pressed against the seed wall, breaking it and bursting through. The seed yielded to heavenly purpose and fell away, dying to self so the embryo might live and grow and produce multiple grains with the fragrance of life.

It is in the dying that new life emerges.
