From God’s Perspective Whether You Are Frantic or At Peace the Outcome is the Same


Imagine watching your child facing something stressful in his or her life. They have a choice to face it calmly or with wringing of their hands. You, their parent, are in charge of the details and making sure that everything comes out “OK”. What would you rather see? Your child without angst and trusting you to pull this off for them or your kid all tied in knots fretting, stressing and looking like a pretzel tied in knots.


I was thinking the above after my Lord Jesus whispered to the “ears” of my heart:

My little daughter, the confusion you see is of the enemy but I am working through it for your good.

Whether you’re frantic or at peace in me the outcome is the same.

So you can turn it loose to me. I have a plan for you birthed out of love.

Still yourself in Jesus and behold as it unfolds. Trust me.

Psalm 4:5
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD. (NKJV)

Psalm 18:2
The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (NKJV)

Proverbs 3: 5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. (NKJV)
You mean I really don’t have to get upset, stressed, jumping up and down like a little kid, I simply need to trust You? What a most freeing and incredible revelation!

PRAYER: Dear Jesus, please help me to be at peace in You. Looks like You are telling me that frantic wastes so much time and energy all for no good reason.  I do hear You now, help me to remember when I am in the thick of it next time. AMEN

Sunset Painted by God

Thursday, December 8, 2016



Quiet gray

Morning clouds dipping



Coolness touching

Doe drinking bird bath

Streams dried


Refresh us

Our Jesus, raining down

Heaven’s revival


We thirst,

More of you our King

We pray

You celebrated your special date

Born eternally

Bright, new, clean in Jesus

42 years prior,

Yet only yesterday;

Washed in His blood

Given promise in the Word

Lifted out of sin's slime

To walk, run, skip

For the first eternal time

Hugged close, tossed toddler-like

Into clean, life-giving air

By the everlasting arms of God.

Strength never known

Windblown hair

Heir of salvation

Now walking in LIGHT.

Daughter of the Son

Removed from darkness

Taken from night

Into His presence

Lifted to eternal LIFE.

A most incredible book on end times (non-fiction) written by a dear friend of mine is ready for pre-order!
Stonebridge Publications is pleased to announce the pre-release sale of Dr. Cliff Kelly's highly anticipated work on the end times!

Click on the link below to order The Sixth Seal at the sale price of $9.99 for delivery by Christmas!

Read what others are already saying!

“Cliff Kelly’s Sixth Seal is the easiest to understand and most plausible explanation of Biblical eschatology that I have ever read or heard.  Those who are just beginning to study this most difficult finale of Scripture will appreciate a clear foundation with which to compare other interpretations.  And those who are familiar with eschatology should find plenty to consider.  Cliff’s vivid writing style, references and quotes from extensive reading supplement this fascinating subject.  Perhaps God made such a terrifying series of events intriguing so that we would study it, and be more prepared for what God warns us is going to happen.” – Dr. Pamela Jason, professor of political science

“Dr. Cliff Kelly’s new book The Sixth Seal represents the culmination of more than 35 years of diligent study. This slim volume is not a dry academic tome but rather a passionate labor of love cast in a lyrical style rich with poetic references and literary allusion. This conversational narrative is also a valuable repository of expert resources relevant to the state of contemporary culture and spirituality at the beginning of the 21st Century. Dr. Kelly’s avowed central focus is on rightly interpreting the Book of Revelation, a formidable task that has challenged many able scholars over the course of two millennia. The arguments advanced are rooted solidly in the Biblical text and in the linguistic origins of key words. The Sixth Seal is a timely work and an important commentary on End Times events.” – John ‘Cadillac Dave’ Wheeler, author and journalist
