Daily Word

I’ve decided to start sharing my daily passage from God’s Word here (as well as on social media,) in addition to my regular posts here. Even though I don’t always share any commentary or thoughts with them. Even though I may not do it everyday. I hope you find them an encouragement!–and the other freelywhole.com posts too. And I hope that you’ll subscribe (in the sidebar) on freelywhole.com Why posting these here also? And what you can do to help–you and me. 1) Too many friends have lost their social media accounts, due to hacking or lock-outs. Many of them… Continue reading

Psalm 143 Bible Journaling

Do you spend much time in the Psalms? One purpose of God’s Word is for it to be a comfort to us. But we don’t usually turn to Leviticus to find that solace. In times of deep distress, we perhaps can’t even think where to turn. In that turmoil, we may just open the Bible anywhere and hope that God speaks out, but this Bible roulette may have the opposite effect. Or maybe we just freeze, and don’t turn anywhere—abandoning God’s Word, that’s he’s given us to help us. Crying out to God in our trials with our words is… Continue reading

Shalom

While I was convalescing last month, I had plenty of time to think of direction, focus, goals. I’d already made some decisions that would make a change going forward. I thought that specific path of change would begin in January, but found that it needed to be postponed for a little longer this year, leaving me in a gap. I’m a recovering overachiever, overthinker, overfunctioner. Having a gap, while looking to move forward, doesn’t sit well on my soul. “God, what do you want me to do in this “gap?” I have goals. I want to move forward with this…. Continue reading

Word—Psalm 73

When things are too painful for me, He remains. He is trustworthy. He will judge Righteously. Evil never wins. Though my flesh and heart fail, God holds me and guides me, and is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Trust in Him. He is trustworthy and loves you!

Pro 30:8 YHWH Yireh Journaling

YHWH Yireh, My God will Provide! Often, this is the hardest promise of God for many to believe. His failure to provide is many times the greatest fear of DV survivors. It keeps them stuck in the destructive situation, when they need to get out for safety and healing. Others aren’t immune to these fears either. Even for those that this isn’t a fear, it is still to be the prayer of all of us, “Give us this day our daily bread.” In Proverbs 30:8, Agur declared to Ithiel and Ucal his request of God, “Give me neither poverty nor… Continue reading

Luke 4:18 – He Has Come

He has come! That is the Good News! With the recent celebration of Advent and Christmas, our minds and hearts have been focused on the coming of Jesus, the Messiah. But he didn’t just come as a baby to live as a human and to die. His death and resurrection, to atone for the sins of His own was His ultimate purpose, but He also came with a ministry purpose in life here on earth. His death and resurrection extended that ministry to those of us that have come much later in HIStory, that didn’t walk the streets of Judea… Continue reading

Out of the Valley

When life’s been full of darkness, the Valley of the Shadow of Death feels like an endless tunnel. No Light shines forth. Yet I know He is there. He walks with me. He holds me close. He is the Hope that keeps me going, the Hope that Light is there. He will never leave or forsake His beloved children–Me! He protects me. He comforts me. He leads me forth in the dark, step by terrifying step, through the evil. I trust. I Hope. But fear lurks near. Then… A flicker is seen in the far distance. Ever so slight. Ever… Continue reading
