Listening to Inspiration

God wants to help us on the path of life. His Spirit can give us direction and help if we are willing to act on that direction. Acting on positive thoughts and feelings helps us receive more direction, because we show God that we are a person He can trust and use. As we act on those things and see how God is directing us, our faith and confidence in Him grows.

The Universal Remedy
The Holy Spirit can do for us physically, emotionally, mentally and intellectually what no man-made remedy can begin to duplicate
Linda K. Burton

Your Confidence in Impressions
As you gain experience and success in being guided by the Spirit, you confidence in the impressions you feel can become more certain than your dependence on what you see or hear

    Avoiding the Trap

    Sometimes we let Satan get the better of us. We listen to that wrong voice in our head and he wreaks all kinds of havoc.  He particularly loves to get issues started in families, and I played right into his hand. This summer when my oldest son returned home from...

    Regrets can paralyze you.  They can serve as roadblocks to keep you from moving forward.  They can snatch you, suck you back and spiral you down into grief. We all have regrets… it’s simply part of living and part of making mistakes, but what we choose to do with those regrets...

    I’m Ok. . .

       Yeah, I am ok. That is what I will tell you if you ask me how I am doing. I am ok. And for the most part I really am. Bart’s passing was not expected, but I have received some very special/sacred answers to my prayers letting me know that...
