7.7.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: A Klutz on a Path

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I am a klutz. My feet can literally trip on air. I once tripped on some air while carrying a sheet cake in a moment could have come straight from an episode of “I Love Lucy.” I tripped at a Mexican restaurant and landed about eight feet from where my trip originated as a restaurant full of horrified diners paused … Continue reading 7.7.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: A Klutz on a Path

7.5.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: 1000

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• Today is the 1000th post on Instagram (not the 1000th prayer prompt… this is the 850th). So in honor of that—we’re going to talk about 2 Peter 3:8. It says, “Dear friends, don’t overlook this one fact: With the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day.” It seems innocuous enough, but talk … Continue reading 7.5.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: 1000

7.4.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Fear and Fireworks

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I used to love Fourth of July. Until I got a dog. This is one of my least favorite days of the year now. I will spend the late afternoon and evening consoling 90 pounds of Labrador who will be terrified by the fireworks. But even if the weather prediction comes true and we end up with rain, it’s going … Continue reading 7.4.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Fear and Fireworks

7.2.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: A New Day

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I’m not naturally a morning person, but I’ve trained myself to become one. Most mornings, I get up pretty easily, albeit after I hit the snooze for about 30 minutes on the multiple alarms I have on my phone. And recently, I somehow keep taking screenshots of my alarm with my new iPhone. I keep finding these random screenshots of … Continue reading 7.2.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: A New Day

6.29.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: A Broken Spirit

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• “The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit. You will not despise a broken and humbled heart, God” (Psalm 51:17). This is a powerful verse. And I’m going to use an analogy for which I have zero frame of reference: horses. I’ve never ridden a horse. They are pretty, but horses have free will and they don’t come with … Continue reading 6.29.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: A Broken Spirit

6.28.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Always Praise

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• When this blog turned a year old, I changed the platform a little bit. Instead of being a daily “prayer prompt,” it switched to a “praise & prayer prompt.” Then, at the end of each devotion, there’s always some kind of prayer of thanksgiving. I believe in the power of praise. But just because I believe it doesn’t mean I’m … Continue reading 6.28.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Always Praise

6.24.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: No Need to Fear

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• We adopted our dog, Beth, when she was three and she’s 11 now. She’s always had some weird quirks but recently, they have grown to epic proportions. And let me tell you, Friends… You can’t reason with a paranoid dog. They just refuse to listen to common sense or believe that their delusions have no merit. It’s not helping that … Continue reading 6.24.19 Praise & Prayer Prompt: No Need to Fear
