Do you ever find yourself in a situation that leads you to spiral down a negative path in your mind? Do your thoughts swirl so swiftly that you can relate to the term, “head spinning?” You may even find yourself directing all your undesirable energy toward a person whom you feel to be responsible for the situation or irresponsible in their part in it. Often, this can lead to full blown anxiety.
Does any of this sound familiar? I know that I can quite easily go down a path of rumination at such a rapid pace that I am not… Read the rest
Are you angry about something from the past? Are you angry about the way negativity in the world is escalating every day? Do you read and or watch negative things? Are you edgy and at unrest in your spirit?

Do you ever feel you will never see the light of day? Circumstances can readily overwhelm even the strongest among us. Never lose hope for the dawn will come. Things will shift.
Stay ever close in your relationship with the Lord. Consistently pray a mighty hedge of protection around yourself, your loved ones and your relationship with God. Consistently put on the whole armor of God, praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit for others. Plead the blood of Jesus over all you… Read the rest
Do not step into battles you are not meant to fight. For in so doing you can be taken out if wounded in those superfluous battles. Choose wisely before you engage. There are some battles you are called to but certainly not every single skirmish that presents itself.
Walk away from all disruptive spirits and situations to which you are not called. For with each such encounter you lose a piece of yourself. Your joy and peace are chipped away. Your heart corrodes (for it is always a heart issue) while doing little to theirs for that is where they… Read the rest

Tomorrow we celebrate Veteran’s Day in the United States of America. This day is set aside to honor those who have served and continue to serve in our Armed Forces to keep us free.

The Power of the Lord Breaks
Today marks the official beginning of the autumn season. Autumn signifies the end of summer. It marks conclusion with an eye toward winter when much seemingly lies dormant. It is a time of turning inward. Crops are harvested and brought in for consuming and storing for sustenance in the months ahead. This is also a time of gathering storm clouds and fall weather threats. We have been witnessing the ravaging floods in Colorado and other natural devastation brought on by changing weather patterns.
