Words for the Soul~June 22

There are things I take for granted that other people are praying for…

Is this true for you too?


“Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” Proverbs 4:23

Offering a prayer of discernment that we all may distinguish problems from glitches and crisis from challenges.

 . . . what happened to our ancestors in the wilderness long ago. God guided all of them by sending a cloud that moved along ahead of them, and he brought them all safely through the waters of the sea. ~1 Corinthians 10:1

Fly Your Flag of Grace

From the Library of Congress Collection


Yesterday, June 14th, was Flag Day.

Even though Flag Day is not a federal holiday,

it is a memorial day to remember the adoption of the U.S. Flag in 1777.










Make today your Flag Day.

Today, take a few minutes to fly your flag of Grace.

Conceive it. Create it. Color it.

It’s summer…there’s time.

No crayons at your house? (then it really IS time!)

Leave masterpieces for the museum. This is your flag of Grace!



Rejoice in Grace and wave your flag of Grace. Think about all the blessings done for you through Grace.  You don’t have to make an actual flag of Grace (although it is fun to do!)

You can contemplatively fly your Grace flag. Think about where you once were compared to where you are now. What are the victories you have enjoyed? Think about whose misaligned holds you were delivered from through Grace. Thing about how Grace saved you and all the calamities you have avoided because of Christ’s sacrifice.


 “At that very time He rejoiced greatly in the Holy Spirit, and said, “I praise You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight.” ~Luke 10:21

Midweek Question~ June 10

In what ways has God been generous with you?

generous grace

While wandering through flea markets this passed weekend, I found a large stack of old magazines.

Within the pages of one of the magazines, I found this ad about trails and I snapped it with my phone.


This week and this summer, I hope you and I find our trails (or continue on the trail of best service).

I encourage you to keep moving. “The path of least resistance  — is the path of least reward.” Do not allow circumstances to dictate what you do or say. Let Grace always get the final word.

Question of the Week: June 3

Does fear feel safer than trusting God?

DoesFearFeelSafer Than Trusting God


The weird thing about being afraid for a long time is that you get comfortable with it.

And before long you start to believe fear itself keeps you safe and keeps bad things from happening. I felt like fear protected me. As long as I stayed vigilant, cautious, and wary, nothing bad would happen.

Instead of depending on God for protection, I held tight to something destructive.

The problem is, we let the bigness of grief and pain overwhelm the obvious: God loves.~Susie Davis, author of the book Unafraid
