Day 51: Make Crooked Paths Straight

Do you feel like you’re traveling crooked paths, repeating unwanted patterns, stuck in some form of bondage or another? You don’t have to stay stuck in this. God is telling you,

“I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:

And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.” Isaiah 45:2-3

Day 50: To Everything There Is a Season

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”

(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)

Day 47: Make Darkness Light

Life often sends us on twists and turns. Paths we felt led to travel often lead to tragedy or pain. But through it all, if we look to Christ, He can make the winding paths of our lives work together for our good.

“And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.” Isaiah 42:16

refiner's fire

Day 46: Fear Not, I Am With Thee

When we we’re walking through the refiner’s fire, we have the choice to be consumed or forged. If we look to Christ, our hardest trials can work together for our good and transform us into a better, purer, stronger person. Our thought today comes from Isaiah 43:2:

“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Isaiah 43:2

Day 45: I the Lord Thy God Will Hold Thy Right Hand

When hard things happen and you wonder if you can make it another day or even another hour, I hope you’ll take comfort in these words from Isaiah.

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness….For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.” Isaiah 41:10-13

law of sacrifice

Day 44: The Law of Sacrifice

Do you want more time? More money? More friends? To achieve your dreams? The answer is found in the law of sacrifice as explained by Jesus:

“Except a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit.” John 12:24-25.

Today I’m exploring the blessings that come through death — the new life, the new possibilities, the new power that comes as we sacrifice time, money and resources and as we release those we love to the grave.

There is something about grief in losing a loved one that opens us up to sweet miracles, divine tender mercies and joy. It is one of the most exquisite manifestations of the duality of our universe … that within every challenge there are equal blessings. The law of divine compensation is on overdrive at these times if we have eyes to see and acknowledge it.

My heart goes out to my dear friends Martina, Luanna and Marcia with the passing of your parents. They will be near you, watching over you. They are your angels with more power to run to you and assist you than they ever had in mortality.

As Obi Wan told Darth, “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.”

desire is power

Day 42: Where There’s Desire, There’s Power

Is there is something you’ve always wanted to do, but don’t think you have the ability to do it? Where there is desire, there is power. Psalms 37:4 says

“Delight thyself in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thy heart.”

In this video, I’ll prove to you the truth of this statement by giving you an example.

I’ve always wanted to feel comfortable singing in front of people, but I was too scared to do more than sing in the car by myself. I also have wanted to be able to compose music. Today, I wrote a song and I’m going to sing it for you in this video… just to prove to you that God really can give you the desires of your heart, whether they’re ever spoken or not.

be still my soul

Day 43: Be Still My Soul

Three of my good friends have lost a parent this week. Their loss has brought back the feelings and experiences in losing my own mother. Interestingly enough, I’m staying at the house of my own friend who lost her father unexpectedly today. No one saw it coming. He was only 62 and died out of a heart attack.

It’s one of those days when I finally understand why I am where I am and it’s not why I thought you were. Obviously, the reason I felt inspired to take this trip this summer is so that I could be here with my friend Martina and offer what comfort I can.
