My Soul Thirsts for You

A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
    my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
    as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
    beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life,
    my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
    in your name I will lift up my hands.

Loving His Will

It’s not merely doing holy things that produces holiness! It’s simply trusting a Holy God! Do you realize that God is not only nearer than you are to yourself, but that He also knows you better than you know yourself? And He loves you better than you love yourself! When I accept this, I begin…

Just do it

Why are you seeking more knowledge? It’s not mere knowledge you need, but the “knowing” that comes from have done the thing!

Have you been asking for something you don’t need? Sometimes we fall into the trap of praying for more when we didn’t manage less! It’s not about what you dont have, it’s about where you put your priorities and what you focus on. Too many of us are scattered across too many things and not…

Time for refocus!

Whoever they are and whatever they did, it’s not worth it to allow your history to abort your destiny! If you keep taking in offense, it will damage your attitude, and the person God desires you to be will continue to corrode from the toxicity of the buildup of the things that have happened to…

I believe in the Holy Spirit!

  The following are notes from a recent Seminar on the Holy Spirit: Holy Spirit There are few things more misunderstood than the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the accompanying gifts. Many have gone through their church’s sacraments and teachings and think that’s all there is to their religious experience.  Because for some, so…

The Notebook

By Barbara Heil | February 2, 2016

Not too long ago I was given a simple spiral notebook by a very good friend. It was given to me to journal my thoughts during Lent. When the day came for me to open the notebook and begin my entries, I was amazed that this person had taken the time and energy to label…

My Sheep Know My Voice

By Barbara Heil | January 2, 2016

One Spring I went to visit a rancher who wanted to show me his new lambs. After we inspected the new lambs, we went to see part of his larger herd of sheep. I was fascinated as the rancher whistled and I watched every head perk up at attention. Then simultaneously they began moving toward…
