A Plan to March Forth

February 28, 2019 at 9:50 am | Posted in Christian Women | Leave a comment

Hi Friends!

This being that last day of February and the nearing of Spring, let’s consider that we have an opportunity for a fresh start in the Lord!

Here’s a 4-Day Plan to consider:

FRIDAY, MARCH 1st

Let’s march first to our desks and write two lists.   The first will be an honest list of our current needs and short-comings (sins and frailties).   On the second list, write from scripture some of God’s names that describe His cabilities and love for us!

Here are some beautiful names of God to ponderNames of Jesus green pic:

 

 

 

 

 

 

SATURDAY, MARCH 2nd

On Day 2, set aside a special time to tarry in God’s presence.  Through prayer, surrender your list of needs and shortcomings to our precious King and Savior, Jesus.  Wait with confidence for His cleansing power as we empty ourselves of us and are re-filled with His Holy Spirit.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  1 John 1:9

I love the Lord because he hears my prayers and answers them. Psalm 116:1 TLB

SUNDAY, MARCH 3rd

It’s Sunday, the Lord’s Day!  It’s the New Testament Sabbath honoring the Lord’s resurrection on the first day of the week!

Take time to rest, take a break, and bask in God’s presence.

He said to them, “This is what the Lord commanded: ‘Tomorrow is to be a day of sabbath rest, a holy sabbath to the Lord. So bake what you want to bake and boil what you want to boil. Save whatever is left and keep it until morning.” Exodus 16:23

Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.  Exodus 20:8

“Observe my Sabbaths and have reverence for my sanctuary. I am the Lord.” Leviticus 19:30

MONDAY, MARCH 4th

It’s Monday; time to get up and march forth!   Let’s put feet to our faith and move ahead with excitement as we trust God for His guidance, wisdom, and power through His Holy Spirit!

He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.    Psalm 1:3 (NKJV)

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us   Ephesians 3:20

God bless you with a wonderful new month as you march forth in the name of Jesus!

In Christ always,

Carole

 

Think Creatively!

Greetings Again in Our Lord!  

Spring is almost here!  What a beautiful time of year to witness new beginnings in nature and in our lives too!

I’ve been thinking about the speaking topic I presented last November for Church of the Highlands in San Bruno, CA.  What a blessed day that was as we considered new ways of “Creating a Legacy of Gratitude”. The thing is–giving thanks is not just seasonal but an every day opportunity!  Are you ready to refresh and renew the legacy of thanks you’re leaving for others?

Legacy of Gratitude Session Two - Creating My Legacy

First, re-embrace the truth of God’s word.  Our Father God’s unfathomable love for us has been demonstrated through the sacrifice of His only Son, Jesus Christ.  John 3:16  

Now, think creatively of new ways to leave your legacy of God’s truth and love for others. Why? With so much opposition to the Gospel in our society today, we desperately need guidance from the Holy Spirit as we strive to demonstrate God’s love to our pre-Christian family, neighbors, community, and beyond.

With the coming of Spring, we have a chance to renew our purpose for being–to bring honor and glory to God. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate new beginnings!

God bless your days ahead as you refresh and grow your legacy of gratitude and love; all for His glory!

 In Christ always,   

Carole

JESUS IS THE TRUE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!

December 21, 2018 at 8:28 pm | Posted in Christian Women | Leave a comment

Hi Friends and a Joyous Christmas to you!

Yesterday, a surprise beacon of light came from a distant window to shine on the antique Nativity scene under our tree. For authenticity, I created the cave setting to replace the traditional barn….this after visiting the limestone cavern below the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

Grandma's Nativity Scene

You’re only seeing a few of my Grandmother’s antique figurines. With all the tiny statues circling the base of the tree, the natural sunlight specifically illuminated the scene for about 5 minutes. How beautiful!

Light bends, you know.  It wraps around corners and reaches into obscure and unexpected places. It wakes us up and shows us the way.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 NIV

I love how Jesus, the Light of the world, bends to meet us where we are; around the corners of our hurting hearts. He shows up in unexpected places and illuminates our minds to the Truth of His word. When we need direction, He shows us that He is the Way. What a joy to follow Him!

Thank you Father God for sending your precious Son to us.  If not, how would we know of Your great love for us? 

May your Christmas be greatly blessed!

In Christ always,

Carole

Clothed in God’s Love

KEYNOTES FROM CAROLE

Hi Friends!

I had the great blessing of speaking last weekend for a group of ladies in the Lodi,
CA area. The topic they requested was “Clothed in God’s Love”.

Aren’t you grateful that our God gives us actual spiritual garments that we can
dress ourselves in? His divine accessories are not only for praise but for battle!

If you’re personally not in some sort of spiritual battle right now, prepare because
sooner or later you will be. When we belong to the Lord and are sharing the Good
News with others, the enemy will do what he can to disrupt our lives and our joy.

Here are some of the wardrobe staples from Ephesians Six that really do make us
look much better when we put them on!

Creator Collection Accessories

 

 

 

 

 

 

For certain, we need to be “fat” in the word. If we aren’t, the belt of truth will end up around our ankles!

More than ever, let’s READ, CONSIDER, AND LIVE IT OUT!
Jesus is our living hope!

God bless you with a wonderful Thanksgiving!

In Christ always,
Carole

Having Joy in an Eccentric World

October 9, 2018 at 4:58 pm | Posted in Christian Women | Leave a comment

Hi Friends!

Have you recently considered 2 Timothy 1:7? The apostle Paul tells us, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

A sound mind means well-adjusted; an explanation for why we can be full of joy when there is so much turmoil in our world.

When we reflect joy in the midst of a trial, we are considered by many to be eccentric or just weird.  Ha!

Eccentric is a mechanical term meaning off-center, out of balance, catty-wampus.  What a false description for believers!

Jesus is the center of the universe. He is the reason that physics, molecules,  and our physiology are held together so well.  When He is in the center of our lives, we are in harmony with the universe and Him!

People who choose to reject God’s truth are the off-balance, eccentric ones. The evidence is in our daily news.

My prayer for all of us is that we who are Christ-centered will have no spirit of fear and will keep shining the love of Jesus in a dark world.

Many blessings to you as you rejoice in His goodness!

In Christ always,

Carole

Paddle Forward

September 17, 2018 at 3:41 pm | Posted in Christian Women | Leave a comment

Hi Friends!

Blessings to you these last few days of summer!  For many parts of the country, it’s not summer at all.  Please keep all those living in the path of hurricane Florence in prayer. 

I’m so grateful that my six-week devotional Revitalize is now available and pray that many will be greatly blessed as they go through it!   

Here’s an excerpt to bless your day! 

WEEK 1, DAY 1  

Paddle Forward 

I’ve always loved rides that inspire me to sound off with a loud “Whee!” or “Yee-haw!” While visiting the Canadian Rockies, my husband and I decided to try a white-water raft trip.

After wriggling into wet suits, rubber booties, and life jackets, we received a crash course in dry dock on rowing etiquette.

Paddle forward

Paddle backward

Stop

Paddles up

Rest

Those commands seemed easy enough to follow.

Our group of seven gripped the side-ropes of our raft and lugged it downhill to the river’s edge-a pebbly beach just around the bend from the bottom of the magnificent, roaring Athabasca Falls!

Quickly choosing our seats, we braced ourselves while our guide at the back calmly said, “Ready? Paddle forward.”

Many blessings to you for beautiful Fall days ahead!

In Christ always,

My Unusual Summer

KEYNOTES FROM CAROLE

Hi Friends!

Summer is an amazing time of year when the weather allows for swimming, camping, picnics, BBQ’s, and simply enjoying being in the great outdoors!      

For me, I’m getting a late start since I’VE BEEN IN MY OFFICE WRITING! 

Yes, I’ve been writing words–without music–in book form. Really! You might be thinking, “Big deal. Doesn’t everyone these days?” A lot of my friends are but for a musician like me, it’s been new and challenging.   

HERE’S MY PRAISE REPORT!

After working on my projects since last August, I’ve come up with two books!  First is my voice manual Cookin’ Up a Song which I began several years ago.  My fun-filled faith-based book for church volunteers is done and Live on Amazon!

New Cookin' front cover- 2018  Cookin’ Up a Song

That writing experience in itself would be plenty but the Lord has been laying on my heart to complete a six-week devotional for women called Revitalize! It’s nearly ready for print and you’ll be seeing it on Amazon very soon. I’ll keep you posted!

The Apostle Paul tells us, “Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant-not of the letter but of the Spirit,” (2 Corinthians 3:5-6). 

With faith in God and trust in the Holy Spirit, we can pursue our dreams!  Support  and patience from my husband as I’ve spent hours, days, and months typing away is greatly appreciated too.

One of my favorite new sayings is, “Never let you memories be greater than your dreams.”  Let me encourage you to keep looking ahead as God helps you fulfill your dreams too!

In Christ always,

Carole
