When it's said that the Word of God is alive and breathing, it's true. I've always believed it, but this week, I witnessed it first-hand...the words in scripture playing out in a physical way in my life. This is the story of how God whispered to my heart, using Isaiah 30...

When we moved to Georgia almost 7 years ago I was excited to give our new house a fresh and updated look, different from the home in Texas we lived in for over 10 years. A desire to design rose up inside of me, stemming from 12 years as an interior decorator and fashion consultant. It was something that largely drove my world. At the time, I owned my own business, Bellarue, decorating homes and corporations and acting as a personal stylist. Home parties, Dallas markets, antique shops, fashion shows, handmade scarves and custom-made price tags - I was in my element. And let’s just say there was an innate desire in me to decorate any space I was in. This move was no exceptio...

The mini series that is this whisper has been in the weaving process for the last few months, but actually began about a year and half ago in the sanctuary of our church. It began the minute I walked in, headed toward some seats a few rows back, and was stopped by Garth who nudged me and said, "let’s go up front." Okay. No problem here. It wasn't our "norm", but I didn’t give it a second thought. The service began - worship, prayer, a powerful message, but nothing else out of the ordinary. That is until God did something completely out of the ordinary. Our pastor was ending the service with an altar call when God began whispering to me and it turns out, was whispering to Garth at the exact same moment. As the pastor spoke an invitation to the altar, I watched from behind closed eyelids, the Lord paint a picture of a man gathering all the things one might need to build a fire...a large burlap bag full of sticks and a handful of matches - an image of a man preparing a...

On a 10-hour flight to Israel about a month ago, I had ample time on my hands, so I decided to watch a handful of movies that I've managed to miss over the last year or so. One of the movies I watched was A Star is Born, one of those I'm glad I watched it, but I honestly don’t think I’d watch it again kind of movies.It felt lonely and dark and, I think sadly, an honest picture of where so many are at. But that's not what this is about. I won’t ruin it for you if you haven’t seen it..this isn’t a movie review after all - it’s more like a life review that God did for me - through a specific song from the movie and how He used it to whisper something in my ear. 

Have you ever experienced a time when God used a song to hit deep in your spirit? The kind of moment that when the song plays, you stop all you're doing to just sit and listen? Then you hit repeat, again and again? Or on occasion, maybe the Lord repeats it over and over for you. If you h...

Yesterday, I wrote on the last page of a journal that began in January. Today, I closed the cover and opened a brand new journal. A common occurrence, I know, especially for those who are diligent in journaling. But when you begin to see and hear God in everything, an act as simple as closing one book and opening another becomes a very significant message. As I was praying this morning, I knew this particular transition was something different and it was anything but common - something the Lord was highlighting for me in the moment..and in the new season that He has waiting just inside the new journal cover.

The journal I’ve been writing in for the past six months is all black with gold flecks dotted across the cover in a pattern. On the inside of each page, written at the bottom, is the word "greenroom." It's not an amazing journal by any standards, but it did the job. I don't know if any of you feel the same but, to me, the p...

Well, that was a long stretch of not writing. 

It turns out Satan stole my story. For real. Which shouldn’t have surprised me. Scripture says it very plainly in John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.” And yet it still surprised me. I haven’t written about this story yet because every time I get ready to write about this, something causes me to pause. And I finally realized why. It’s two-fold actually. One, I’ve looked everywhere I can possibly think of for my notes that I wrote about “the day I got a call from Satan." I know it happened on September 9, 2016, because it's recorded on my phone, stamped with the date. But my notes themselves are completely missing. I had even started an entry on my blog site on September 29, 2016, ready to write all about the day I got a call from Satan. And then, nothing.

Two, whenever there is mention of Satan, people glaze over. Or there are those that get upset and say things like, "you need to focus only on God". Don’...

I was sitting down for a minute reflecting on Christmas and thinking about what story to share next. There's so much I wanted to write about and share, but the Lord just wouldn't release me until I wrote about the thing He's been asking me to write about for months. It didn't feel like such an awesome Christmas message, but as I prayed about it, I saw that it actually kind of was...because everything wrapped around Christmas is meant to be about everything but us. It's meant to be about the love that our Lord has for us. All that the Lord has for us. And as we get ready to head into the new year, I want to know that I am in a place of total readiness for all the Lord has for me. So this is the story of the moment God whispered to me unexpectedly in the middle of a worship service.

A reality hit me pretty hard this week and I had to wrestle through it with the Lord, because it truly grieved my heart.

I’m beginning to wonder if more people than not believe that God can’t do anything and everything He wants to? I'm not talking about those of us who struggle with big faith because it's hard, or those who don't understand or even know about it. I'm talking about those who know God, know scripture but stop short of believing His power could exist in our lives. Over and over this week I heard accounts of pastors who put God in a small, undersized box and called it truth. A belief they hold and speak out that, as it hits my ears, sounds very much like “God’s power isn’t alive and active, at least for us, now.” They're speaking of the kind of power that comes in dreams and in miracles, in healings and in scripture that jumps off the page and becomes reality. And so, as they speak, I hear - “That simply doesn’t exist anymore. That was then, this is now.” And it makes my...

I haven’t written in awhile. Obvious statement, I know. The not so obvious is why. I keep asking myself that question. Why? What’s the hindrance? I have the stories. God continues to show me some pretty amazing things. Speaks to me in intimate ways. Puts me in situations that only the Lord could. And yet I can’t write. I feel distracted, my head feels thick, I feel a disconnect of sorts. And I realize, I'm simply going through the motions.

I woke up one morning a few months ago and said to the Lord, “What do You have for me, what do You want me to say? I don’t want to go through the motions.” And then hit play on Pandora. It's a fun activity the Lord and I do together...I ask a question and then play Pandora. And more often than not, He answers me word for word with a song. Quick side story - one morning before I was about to go on a trip that was a pretty big deal, I asked the Lord for confirmation of my role. I left the room for a second and when I came back, Pandora was playing a son...

I know I just wrote something and in the world of blogging, I don’t think you’re supposed to write one on top of another. But since my intent really isn’t to be a blogger, but simply to share what the Lord is whispering to me, I figure it's okay.

The things the Lord has been showing me feel a bit like a state of emergency. So I feel a weight to share this - sooner than later. And I believe with everything in me that we have the ability to speak life, to speak things that are on the Lord’s heart into action and into being. So that is my prayer.

For the past couple weeks, I’ve been seeing emergency sirens in my dreams and visions, something I have learned over the years indicates that the Lord wants me to pay attention. So when I picked up the phone the other morning and saw an amber alert, I knew to start praying and pay attention. And then all at once, my heart dropped and my pulse began racing and I knew what the Lord has been trying to tell me. In one swift moment, all the different pi...
