In the Still of the Night

This is an older writing that I wrote a couple of years ago. I found it today and thought I would share it with you-enjoy! I did have to condense it a little, becasue as some of you know-I like to talk:)

God says, "Be quiet and know that I am God. I will be supreme over all the nations. I will be supreme in the earth." Psalm 46:10

How many of you enjoy talking? Now, I am not just referring to chatting casually with a friend on the phone or even having a heart to heart with a loved one. I am wondering who really enjoys just being able to talk? I know that if talking were a sport I would posses several gold medals! My sister got the curly hair gene and I got the "gift for gab" gene. I enjoy talking, I really do. My mom says that I would get home from school, come in the door talking and I wouldn't stop until I went to sleep at night! Whew! I now have one of those "talkers" in my own house and let me tell you-my ears need a rest after he goes …

Runnin' Down A Dream....

Ok, I know that I am always putting stuff on here about songs and how they trigger a message that I need to share, but I can't help it! I think God uses music, secular and non-secular music to speak to me-He knows what a music nerd I truly am:) So, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers-any fans out there? I used to listen to their music all of the time! I was just sitting here thinking about all of the "dreams" that I have in my heart. Some are spoken, some are unspoken, but they are all real. There is a song of Tom and the Heartbreakers called, "Runnin' Down a Dream- the chorus of this song says, "Yeah, runnin' down a dream that never would come to me. Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads. Runnin' down a dream." I guess the reason this is the song that started going through my head is because right now all of my dreams ARE mysteries to me. I am not sure if they will come true or not, but that isn't going to make me stop d…

She Speaks because He Speaks

I have been wondering here lately what God wants from me? Ok, maybe it has been more like 10 years, and not just lately. Whatever the time frame has been, I know that it is time to follow God's call. I have been reading His word, and listening to my heart and I do hear Him speak. I have been watching an orginization for several years and I have yearned for some direction and advice regarding my speaking/singing ministry and now my book that I have written. I feel like I have years of unspoken words and messages about God's love and grace that have been bottled up for so long-and it is time to say them outloud! There is a wonderful resource for women like me, women who have been called by God to share the Good News. This resource is Proverbs31 Ministry. I have been a follower of this ministry for a long time now and I have been longing to be a part of their awesome conference called, "She Speaks." This conference is for women who know that God has put a call…
