His Voice is Protection

Last week I was stopped at a light, second in line, behind a pickup truck. The bed of the truck had a load of heavy steel of some sort. I don’t know what it was but it looked thick and heavy and definitely not aluminum.

I didn’t have much time to reach my destination and would likely have been in an impatient hurry, but I was having a conversation with the Lord. This is so important because, in that moment, I was relaxed and connected when the light turned green and–

I heard the command, “don’t move!”

I didn’t take time to think about it or wonder, I just didn’t move and it felt as if a protective hand was holding me back. Amazingly, the cars behind me didn’t beep their horns; as often happens when people are not seeing you respond to the light. The pickup truck ahead of me did move however, and must have hit the gas pretty hard. He was under the light, just a few feet away, when the entire contents of his truck bed came flying out–straight out the back, every single piece!

When relating this event to a few people, some have made the comments, “That must have been scary.” and, “That sounds harrowing!” That would have been my natural reaction, had I not been ‘connected’ and heard His Voice. As it was, I heard, obeyed, and was safe. Had I moved, my car would have been totaled and there might have been a quick ride to the hospital. In His Presence is perfect peace and I remained there, totally unharmed.

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3 KJV

Maneuvering my car carefully around the mess, I gave the guy a sympathetic smile and a little wave and drove on to my appointment. He looked pretty embarrassed. Well, he should have been! He really had no business driving around with a big heavy load like that and no tail gate–not even any tie-downs–what was he thinking??? I know what I was thinking, thank you Holy Spirit! Thank you for warning me, and keeping me out of danger!


I am excited to announce that this week my publisher has begun the formatting and final editing process of the next, “His Voice in My Heart” book. Those who have followed right along, know this book has been in process; but it was going to be called “His Voice in My Heart, Volume II.” Well, ‘His Voice in my heart’ changed the title! In fact He changed the two-book set to three. When the third book is ready to reveal, I will tell you just how the Lord guided me in these changes.

I hope you can understand that this is not my work. It has been supernatural every step of the way. I am always amazed and in awe of the Lord’s incredible love for the people He created; and His great desire to heal the human heart. He comforts the brokenhearted and gathers them into His arms. He leads each one out of despair and into the abundant life, that He has prepared.

How wonderful our God is–I am so in awe of Him!

I expect the printing to take place in a month or (two) at the most. Please pray and ask if the Lord would have you join in helping this ministry to reach the brokenhearted, lost and alone. All the books are being distributed free of charge to those in prisons, jails, rehabs and to the homeless. I am especially excited in that, recently, some of the homeless have been asking for the books. They have been very excited about them. It appears the word is getting around, I am so thankful!

Praise the Lord!

“‘Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'” Matthew 25:37-40

Come Away My Beloved

I ask . . . and you comply.

But, do you know — that you are very dry?

You used to come running . . . with arms held open wide.

You used to linger . . . when I was by your side.

Many long, for time to spend with Me . . . You seem distant, unaware of My plea.

Hearken to Me, as I, in turn, listen to you . . . But, there is so much more, in store, for you!

We used to be close . . . We used to be quiet together . . . Can you tell Me, why the separation?

When did it start?

Why did we part?

Come running to Me — with arms held open wide.

I long to be — right there by your side.

We, truly, never do part . . . but, I want your heart!

Do you love Me?

Show Me.

Spend time with Me . . . as I long to spend time with you!

That is My plea . . .

Spend time with Me!

“Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, “There is change in the air.” Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to a higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me.” “You must catch the troubling foxes, those sly little foxes that hinder our relationship. For they raid our budding vineyard of love to ruin what I’ve planted within you. Will you catch them and remove them for me? We will do it together.” Song of Songs 2:13, 15, TPT

What Are You Thinking?

This new year is one of introspect and invention. I want you to take a deep look within . . . I want you to re-invent your life to My specifications.

Your expectation is not wrong, but you will not reach it if you do not tweak your habits and adjust your ways–including your way of thinking.

Consider your ways.

Loss and time have torn at your mind. Think about that and learn from it–

your thinking must change.

Function begins in the mind, but how you think and what you think about can also stop all function.

Meditate on the Word–it will release you from all torment.

When you find peace, then listen for My direction. Do not take direction from the storm. Command the storm–learn from it, but do not run from it.

I may use others to give you confirmation, but I AM your direction–within.

“Apply your mind to instruction and your ear to words of knowledge.” Proverbs 23:12

I AM in the midst of the storm. (Mark 4:38-40)

All around you may be chaos, but you will maintain peace, within, if you know that I AM.

Yes, I AM!

“My son, if your heart is wise, my heart too will be glad. My soul will rejoice when your lips speak what is right. Let not your heart envy sinners, but continue in the fear of the Lord all the day. Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off. Hear my son and be wise, and direct your mind in the way.” Proverbs 23:15-19

“My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to him who finds them, and healing to all his flesh. Keep your heart with all vigilance; for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you crooked speech, and put devious talk far from you. Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Take heed to the path of your feet, then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil.” Proverbs 4:20-27

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
