Might this defeat the weapon of fear? Might the new narrative, spoken aloud, create a different reality? Is this what the kingdom government of God might look like? If we weren’t living in fear, might we make different decisions? Might we open doors of innovation bringing new solutions to education, government, media, health care, family, life?
Good days are ahead.
Cooler weather is coming.
The earth is stable.
What is happening is not unusual.
Sleep. Rest. Breathe.
Let's turn off the noise and turn on some music.
Dancing is healing; joy is wisdom; love is the main thing.
Job 3:25 says “what I feared the most has come upon me.”
Fear is a great weapon. Let's do the opposite and embrace hopeful expectation of good.

Will people follow darkness
Will they move toward fear
Will they believe lies?
Or respond to an inner knowing of truth?
Will they choose wrong?
Or run after right?
Will they serve self?
Or will they live for the sake of others?
Will hate win?
Or will love take the podium?
Will what is happening be an end?
Or a beginning?
Will I do nothing?
Or say “yes” and do something?

I forgot about the time I was an activist in Junior High School until I ran across a newspaper clipping while going through some old boxes. There was an article about me in the Shorewood Herald. I had passed a petition among the students to protest the removal of the Christmas manger scene on the Shorewood High School grounds. The creche had been there as long as anyone could remember, nestled among tall pines.
My dad put me up to the petition, I’m sure. But I like that he gave me a lesson in how we can make a difference in life by having a voice. Because of the petition, the manger remained that year.
I don’t know if it still stands. But I do know the climate of our world and nation today feel very similar to the sixties.
Just like that little Christmas petition, a simple petition in a small town could work to change a school board decision, a town hall vote, or even influence a federal legislator. Small seeds. Tiny steps. What can I do today? I pray - and that’s big. I meet with a group called Women of Courage - who are wanting to make a difference together. I also write - mostly to bring healing and hope and love. Maybe that’s enough - or maybe that is only a start.
Thank you for reading. You can find my books on Amazon.

There are five things I've learned in the ten years since Rick and I attended Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM):
1: The older we get, the hungrier we get. The love of learning and the heart's desire to ever know more of the nature and love of God keep us studying, moving forward in life, and following what we sense God is wanting us to do.
2: There is fruit; and where there is fruit, there is good soil and quality seed. BSSM provided that foundation for us, and our life since then has been filled with awesome opportunities to not only adventure with Him - but see so many people enjoy His healing, peace, joy, and presence.
3: The message hasn't changed. That message is: "God is good. He's better than we imagine. We are His beloved children. All He asks of us is to be His sons and daughters. It's from that precious identity we seek to want to do with Him what He asks us because we love Him and love His exploits.
4: We have the authority of Jesus to defeat the enemy of our souls. We can pray and declare truth and trust things are happening in the spirit. We can sing praises; laugh; and live in joy - and know that these are mighty weapons to defeat the plans of the enemy. We can know that Papa God delights in us and is with us in all things. We can know that even in bad times He will somehow and with great strength turn them around for good. We can trust that His promises will come to pass concerning us.
5: We continue to live in awe and thanks for all we learned while in school. So many helped us attend; and we pray many have benefitted from our time there. It has been such a joy to share what we learned and to pour into others what was poured into us.
We love you all and have so much hope and many plans for the coming years. It's going to be good!
Psalm 145:15 - You have captured our attention and the eyes of all look to you. You give what they hunger for at just the right time.
