From My Heart Devotionals

All My Heart

All My Heart

I am one of those people whose primary love language is words of affirmation.  Many, many times in the last twenty-five years, I have asked Todd the same question repeatedly, “How much do you love me?” I’m not really sure why I even ask because for the past...

All My Might

All My Might

In Sunday school, we talked about King Joash going to see the prophet Elisha before he died.  It seems that Elisha had served as a prophet for around fifty-five years.  Now his life was coming to an end.  From his sick bed, the prophet Elisha put his hands on top of...

Wet Cement and Leaking Roofs

Wet Cement and Leaking Roofs

As a young woman in my twenties before I ever met the person who God had for me, someone else came into my life.  I had nagging thoughts that maybe everything was not correct in this relationship, but I overrode those thoughts.  My emotions got progressively involved...

The Impossible

The Impossible

During every war there are tragedies, and World War II is no exception.  When war came to the South Pacific, around 130,000 civilians in the Dutch East Indies were sent to prisoner of war camps by the Japanese.  Really these were concentration camps.  Many people who...

Presence Unseen

Presence Unseen

I have been places before—classrooms, offices, and homes—where the spirit that came with someone changed the whole atmosphere.  Agitation, irritation, and even a reprobate undertone were created.  My husband and I have spent enough years in the classroom to see the...

Quitting Too Soon

Quitting Too Soon

Recently I’ve wondered about some things for the first time.   If Elijah had not had his servant look for the cloud while he prayed, would it have come?   Elijah had already predicted in I Kings 18:41 after the mighty victory on Mt. Carmel that there was “a sound of...

Are you on the steps?

Are you on the steps?

My church wants revival.  We want an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  My pastor, Bro. Johnny, had a message from God for us Sunday morning.  Can I share it with you? My pastor has wanted to see the fire of God.  The Lord told him, “You’ve gotten the cart before the...

Weeding My Garden

Weeding My Garden

I have a client who I help a few hours a week.  Recently, I have volunteered to pull some weeds for her.  I knew that she would enjoy having this done.  She is mostly housebound and spends hours looking out her windows at her flowers. I am not very knowledgeable about...

I Must Make It!

I Must Make It!

 A few weeks ago, a five-hundred-year flood came to Hanging Lakes area in Colorado.  I’m glad that Todd and I went when we did. We got married in 1996 and went on a honeymoon to Colorado…Durango train, Estes Park, Colorado Springs, and more.  It really was a...
