Coming Toward – An Interpretive Video

There is a song by David Crowder called “Coming Toward” It is an instrumental piece that is repetitive but it keeps building the intensity until finally it resolves. It’s an amazing piece. Anyways, whenever I listen to it an amazing imagery comes to mind and I’ve been seeing it for months. While I would have […]

Sitting at Jesus side

James & John wanted to sit at the right and left side of Jesus, I don’t think that went over well because, and I am assuming, they were hoping for higher positions in heaven than just angels. But for whatever reason, my limited Christian education always gave way for an image of my loved ones […]

What is God’s Plan?

God doesn’t tell us his plan for us. He does that for a reason. So that way we can never fail him. They say that everything happens for a reason, and it’s all part of God’s plan. The point is, we do not know what God’s plan is for us. We have dreams. We have goals in life. We may or may not see them come true.

The Labyrinth

Our church has a labyrinth, a place to find the loving spirit of the Lord. This was my journey from a while back… I had a similar experience today, one where I was placed in a position where I got to enlighten someone else. I felt it was time to reflect. Located at the top […]

God Moments for Easter

Award Winning Author Kathleen J Shields educational books

In March my grandfather passed away. While emotionally trying, I have to admit, the frequent and blatant God Moments assisted the grieving process in a way that made the entire time, dare I say it – pleasant. KNOWING that my grandfather was with God and the rest of my family; my mom, my aunt, my […]

Sitting at Jesus Side Part 2: Reincarnat...

In a previous post, I was thinking about the idea of sitting at Jesus side, or at the very least having some time to socialize with Jesus upon arrival to heaven. Mathematically, I determined that 1.8 people die every second which led to an average of one person per side, per second for all eternity. […]

Which came first God or the Believer?

Which came first God or the Believer? Award Winning Author Kathleen J Shields educational books

Like the old phrase which came first the chicken or the egg, this idea came to me earlier today. It made me really think because there are so many ways we can go with this question. God came first – he made the universe. We wouldn’t exist without him. The Believer came first – without […]

Labyrinth 2: Finding Peace

Lately at church, I haven’t been feeling ‘it’. I tend to leave feeling emptier than when I arrived. That is the exact opposite of what church used to do for me. There are many reasons for that – excuses… working harder, following my dreams, leaving others behind, lost loved ones, oh and that darn biological […]

Cancelling Christmas | A Poem

It was two days before Christmas and all through the square, people were shopping like they hadn’t a care. Ripping through racks of toys, clothes and shoes, pushing past others, “You gave me a bruise!” They didn’t see the beauty, the lights in the trees, they didn’t sense the magic, the love or the freeze. […]

Why God gives you trials.

The other day I was reminded of something from my past and I thought I could use it as a teaching tool. A long while ago, I worked for a small business owner. I was very good at my job and he knew it. He left me in charge of his business, as manager because […]

Is prayer, perception?

Today at church our pastor was teaching us about prayer.  It led to a conversation with someone after church, whom I only know in passing.  A conversation that stayed with me through lunch, through folding laundry, vacuuming and through writing this post.  What I learned may only be for me, but I felt it was insightful […]
