cropped-march-2106-029The world can sometimes feel cold and dark. How quickly a day that began in sunshine and warmth can evaporate like mist in the wind. How can you rekindle the embers of your soul and keep your heart glowing?

cropped-moms-birthday-013v2During the darkest times of my life, it was the heart and words of Jesus that carried me through. In times of great desperation when I found I had no voice left to pray, I learned to use scriptures to speak the cries of my heart for me. The voice of Jesus, found in the holy scriptures of the Bible, became my voice and my prayer. The more I sought Jesus in the pages of the Bible, the more I found Him to be near. If you are going through a difficult time or if you want to infuse more fire into your prayers, you can find out more about the process I used for praying fervent, passionate, Spirit-filled, Bible-based prayers in my book: In Dark of Night When Words Fail.

Follow me here on my website!  Out of overwhelming gratitude to Christ, I share devotional writings, prayers and poems inspired by His Word and His Spirit.

My prayer is that every word I write will illuminate the truth, grace and beauty of Jesus and draw you near His heart, or if you are already close to Him will draw you closer still. Let your heart be warmed again with Bible-based, Spirit-led words of encouragement, refreshment and inspiration.

When our connections include Jesus, His Spirit and His Word, they go deeper, ripple farther and have true lasting power.  Through the power of the Holy Spirit and the power of God’s Word, together we can help one another continue to radiate the warmth of Jesus and stoke the fire of our devotion to Him!
