Show Your Chips


Revelation 19:11-22:21


I am a nut when it comes to being “fancy”. I love doing my nails, I love doing my hair and make up and getting dressed up. When I first started working at the school I had TWENTY-EIGHT outfits laid out and ready to grab out of the closet and go to school. Accessories and everything, I’m not kidding. One thing I loathe is chipped fingernail polish, it’s just so annoying to me, and a little gross. I mean, I could care less about your chipped polish but mine had better not be! Yet I’ve been so busy this week that a few days ago when my nail started chipping I chose to ignore it and keep going and I haven’t stopped since. BUT being a teacher, my hands are constantly pointing things out to students. Usually with my right index finger. So to have my right index fingernail polish chipped and have every single one of my students see that has been really annoying to say the least.
This morning the chip caught my attention even more than usual, in a different way. Like a chink in my perfectly fashioned armor it’s been right out there for all of them to see… I’M NOT PERFECT. And what’s more important, that it’s OK to not be perfect!
NOBODY IS PERFECT, not a single one of us. Yet we try. OH how we try. We try to fool ourselves by trying to fool others thinking maybe if I can convince them that I’m perfect then maybe I will be… at least in their eyes. But the truth always comes out in one way or another, nobody is perfect; and that is perfectly OK.

An Update from the Front


Revelation 15:1-19:10

Oh my friends! I am so very exhausted. I have signed up and started taking online classes in order to renew my teaching license. So now, I’m studying in the morning, working at the middle school from 11-3, doing homework with the kids at school, coming home and cooking dinner, taking Gabe to tennis, coming home again to put the kids to bed then flop back down in front of the computer to work on more homework and my post for the day until I drop. So do please forgive me if I’ve been late posting lately or my just plain short posts. I’m spread thin. But at the same time I’m excited about the possibility of having my own classroom again. I have missed being a teacher of children. And now that I’m working on being a full time teacher again I’m missing writing, go figure.

One of my assignments for my classes is to write a few blog posts about what I’m learning. Which I find interesting seeing as how that’s precisely what I always write about!!! J So don’t be too terribly surprised if I throw a teaching post at you here from time to time in the next few weeks. In fact, there might just be one on time management at some point this week! J

Alrighty my dear ones, it’s time for me to give in for the day. This weary head is in need of a bed to rest upon. Sweet dreams my friends! You are always in my prayers!

Revelation 10:1-14:20
A few days ago Tim asked me how we can KNOW that the Lord’s mark is on our foreheads. And while I haven’t had the time to research that question to the best of my ability, I did find this verse in today’s reading:

 16 The twenty-four elders sitting on their thrones before God fell with their faces to the ground and worshiped him. 17 And they said,

“We give thanks to you, Lord God, the Almighty,
    the one who is and who always was,
for now you have assumed your great power
    and have begun to reign.
18 The nations were filled with wrath,
    but now the time of your wrath has come.
It is time to judge the dead
    and reward your servants the prophets,
    as well as your holy people,
and all who fear your name,
    from the least to the greatest.
It is time to destroy
    all who have caused destruction on the earth.” (Revelation 11:16-18)

We often talk about judgement day and the possibility of being judged. But according to this verse in Revelation, it’s a time to judge those who are dead (who haven’t declared Jesus as their Lord and savior) and to REWARD all who respect His name.
For all who have died in Christ, will also be raised with Him.
Jesus died to forgive your sins…every single one of them. Think about this, at the moment when Jesus died, how many of you’re sins had you committed yet? None! And yet He forgave each and every one of them before you ever committed a single one. HE paid the full price for your sin that day right there on that cross. A price that doesn’t need to be paid again because Jesus paid it ALL, the whole bill AND the tip. He received the entirity of the Father’s wrath leaving nothing for those who accept that gift of sacrificial salvation except… REWARD!
May you KNOW the goodness of the Lord, in this, the land of the living and forevermore!

Revelation 5:1-9:21

 But one of the twenty-four elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the heir to David’s throne, has won the victory. He is worthy to open the scroll and its seven seals.” Revelation 5:5

He had won the victory. The victory had made Him worthy to open the scroll and is seven seals. In all the Earth, in all of creation, no one but Jesus is worthy to open the scroll that unfolds the judgements upon the Earth. All because HE died for US. How blessed are we to have the seal of the Almighty God upon our foreheads? Hallelujah! We are SAVED!

Don’t be Afraid. Keep Calm and Carry On


Revelation 1:1-4:11

 “I know all the things you do. I have seen your love, your faith, your service, and your patient endurance. And I can see your constant improvement in all these things. Revelation 2:19

On the way to church this morning Sean and I were discussing some travel plans we have slated for this summer and the more we talked the more I could feel fear tightening it’s grip on my heart. I have been really stressed about money the past few weeks. I signed up for some classes this past week that I thought were going to cost us $$$$. Stress. Where was this money going to come from? I didn’t know. Where is the money for this trip going to come from? We HAVE to go, it’s a close family member’s wedding and Anna is in it, we don’t have a whole lot of choice in the matter. Worry and fear were playing tug of war and I was the one losing the battle.
Then we got to church and I’m handed a buletin that looked like this:


Keep calm and carry on. It’s been a catch phrase that has caught fire lately and I honestly didn’t pay that much attention to it, until today. As I held the bulletin in my hand we sang, and sang, and (praise God) we sang. We kept singing until my heart broke in and joined the song. Have you ever had that happen before? Where your mouth was singing but your heart just wasn’t in it. In fact, perhaps, your mind was a million miles away while your body was there singing. Or maybe like me, it was two months in the future worrying about things I could do nothing about in that moment… other than surrender them to my Jesus.
And that’s what I ended up doing. I surrendered them, I set those thoughts aside in order to concentrate fully on the gift I was being given in the present. The gift of the present!
I can’t live in tomorrow because I haven’t been given tomorrow yet. I’ve only been given today. And while I can TRY to live in two moments at the same time, it’s just not possible. And honestly, it’s pointless anyway.
And in that moment of surrender, do you know what God said to me? “Keep calm and Carry on. Calm is something that you can keep or you can let it go. KEEP calm! And then carry on.”

There was a moment in the Exodus where the Israelites had gotten their first real taste of freedom from slavery. They had witnessed all the plagues of Egypt and seen the power of the Lord. They had been released from their slavery and had journeyed to the Red Sea. When in the distance they could see that Pharoah had changed his mind about letting them go. In that moment they panicked. They were free men and women, and they had decided they liked it. But off on the horizon there was this huge dust cloud threatening to take that freedom back from them. Now, the dust cloud was not the army itself, that they couldn’t see yet, it was just the threat of the army. And yet that was enough to terrify them. They cried out to Moses, asking him why he would bring them out into the wilderness to kill them. And weren’t there enough graves in Egypt? And in that moment of preemptive fear Moses told them, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm. Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get moving!” (Exodus 14:13-15)
God literally told them to keep calm and to carry on, to stay calm and keep moving in the direction I told you to move. But they couldn’t keep moving forward, there was an OCEAN in their way. Did that stop God? Of course not! Was that a problem for Him? NO WAY! He performed the most miraculous miracle those people had ever seen, and at this point they had seen quite a few!
2 Corinthians 4:6-18 says,
For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.
8 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. 9 We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 10 Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies.
11 Yes, we live under constant danger of death because we serve Jesus, so that the life of Jesus will be evident in our dying bodies. 12 So we live in the face of death, but this has resulted in eternal life for you.
13 But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, “I believed in God, so I spoke.” 14 We know that God, who raised the Lord Jesus, will also raise us with Jesus and present us to himself together with you. 15 All of this is for your benefit. And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory.
16 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

Press on towards the mark my friend, keep running for the goal, persevere through this trial. It will not last forever, but the strength you gain from it will!
So keep calm and carry on.

My Hero on a White Horse

Revelation 19:11-22:21

“Then I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.” Revelation 19:11

For as long as I can remember the pinnacle of any romance scene was the damsel in distress, helpless to gain freedom from captivity under her own power. Then in rides her hero to save the day. In the older movies there would be a horse involved. In the newer movies it’s often an iron horse. But either way, sitting upon that horse would be the hero, the one who held the key to her heart and her freedom.

Many times the story goes that the enemy really couldn’t have cared less about the girl, but he knows that the hero would do anything to see his precious Beloved safely out of the clutches of His evil nemesis. The enemy capitalizes on this fact day in and day out all the while chuckling with his maniacal laugh. Never realizing that the traps he is setting for our hero will inevitably, and usually comically, spring back on the one who set them; gaining our hero victory over the enemy and access to his Beloved Bride.

Who is laughing now?

We see the final scene with our hero embracing his Beloved, the sunset over their shoulders casting them in back-lit shadow, you see them kiss as they fade to black, while overtop you can hear the moans of the fallen enemy as he is led off by the police to his prison cell where he will stay for a thousand years.

Any of this sounding familiar? It’s the end of about every movie known to man; at least most of the ones I’ve ever seen anyway. You know why they all end that way? Because we like watching it happen over and over and over again. Simply put, we’re all that Beloved girl who is trapped with no hope of escape. We’re that damsel in struggling distress praying for our hero on a white horse to ride in and save the day. Our day. We’re the ones in constant need of salvation from a Savior who is willing to give His very life for His Beloved Bride. We’re the ones who need that. We’re the ones laying our heads down on tear-stained pillows praying for the ache to cease, for the pain to lift from our hearts, for our heads to forget a past that continues to chase us down and a present that just won’t let up. We’re the ones who smile through loss and tell everyone we’re fine effectively shutting our doors and throwing away the proverbial key.

There’s only One whose light can penetrate that kind of darkness.


Jesus is the rider of that white horse. His name is Faithful and True (Jesus, not the horse) and He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Jesus is the true hero of our story. He is the only hero of any story to be fully faithful to His Beloved, totally Truthful to her at all times. He is the only hero with the ability to promise her salvation and then actually deliver it fully. He is the only hero so wise as to lure Satan into his own traps. The traps that were meant to kill Jesus the man, and did; only to then have Satan realize three days later that there is no killing Him because He is not just... a man.

Oh my friend, there is no hero like my Jesus. There is no God like my God. There is no savior like my Savior. Isn’t it glorious to remember how heroic He is? Doesn’t it just fill your soul with light and laughter?

Say it aloud with me, “Jesus loves ME”!

It’s the TRUTH. He is faithful. He does not forget promises. He does not lose track of time. He does not misplace His keys. He KNOWS you and He sees you in your trouble and desperate need. He is coming, soon and very soon, He is coming. And He’s coming for YOU. He will save you. He will embrace you and kiss you with a backlit sunset shadow kiss. And you will hear the clank of the Enemy’s chains as he is led off to his eternal prison where HE WILL PAY for his crimes against the Bride of Christ for all of eternity with fire and torture.




It’s HERE!!!! 😀 My very own personalized notebook for writing through the Bible in a year is here just in time to finish the last MONTH of the project right! LOL. Maybe I’ll make more for the beginning when we start over in June. 😉 If you want one for yourself they’re available here.

Earthshaking Love

Revelation 15:1-19:10

“Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” Revelation 19:9

Picking a verse today was hard. Actually, picking a verse this week has been hard. Reading Revelation is hard, but we’re getting through it aren’t we. I’ve always had a hard time reading Revelation, perhaps because I know it’s Truth. It’s a Truth that makes me cringe in fear. 100 pound hailstones? Plagues? And an earthquake so large it splits an entire city into three parts? Eep!!! But this is part of the Bible too. What does it say at the beginning of this book? “Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.” Revelation 1:3

Lord, help me. I’m weak and frail and scared. I need You!

“My child. You’re TIRED. Rest and allow Me to work things out in your favor. Lie down and sleep for I alone make you dwell in safety. The laborers labor in vain if they do not follow My instructions. Here, lie down in this green pasture and sip on this still water and watch Me work. I am preparing a table for you, the likes of which you have NEVER seen! And I am so excited to share it with you in the presence of your enemies!

I love you SO much! You have no idea of the lengths of my love for YOU. You jump through hoops and perform your duties for Me but that’s nothing compared to the wonders I am preparing for you. Just for you. There are things I have prepared for you today that are so enormous, and yet you will be the only one to see them. There are things that I have prepared for you today that will blow your mind and you will be the only one to witness them. Why? Because while I love the whole world, I have an intimate relationship with YOU. You have spent time in My Word and that’s special to Me. You’ve spent time in conversation with Me and that means something to Me, that touches My heart and I want to touch yours. I want for you to feel My presence and My tremendous love for you. I want you to know I care. I want you to know that I see YOU and I hear YOU. I want you to know that YOU matter to me, a LOT. I want to move your mountains for you. I want you to see them crumble at your feet. Not because you’ve done something to earn it or because you took a jackhammer to it, but simply because I love you and I want to help you.

In today’s Word of the Day, I shook the earth so fiercely EVERY mountain fell. I can do that for you. I want to do that for you and I will – if you let Me.

Your fear of the shaking holds Me back. Do you not realize the point of the shaking? Yes, your world is being fiercely shaken at the moment, and in your heart of hearts you know it’s a good thing. Yet you’re having trouble letting go of the pain and fear. Why? Do you not trust My judgment? Do you not trust My goodness? Do you not remember My promises to tend you and care for you? You did not commit yourself to an unfeeling God, who is cold and unloving. Cast ALL of your anxieties upon Me because I CARE FOR YOU!

I love you!

I am a Good Father and the Good Shepherd, I will provide for all your needs. In times of drought or famine, doubt and fear, I will lead you on the good path for My name’s sake. You have not given your eternal soul to someone who does not recognize the sacrifices you’ve made and the cost you’ve paid to follow Me. I’ve seen your pains. I’ve seen your obedience in spite of everything. I’ve seen it and will NOT forget it My love. You matter to Me. I see you. I have NOT forgotten you My dear. You are special to Me. You are not lost, though Satan tries to make you feel that way. I found you, long before you were ever born. Long before you ever took your first breath your name was in My book. Your face was on My mind, your beautiful form before My eyes.

I love you.

My darling, My bride, My friend.

I love you.

It’s going to be OK.”

And I’m Spent

Revelation 10:1-14:20

“And they have conquered him [the accuser of the brothers] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony,” Revelation 12:11

Sorry folks, I’ve got nothin’ today. My brain is spent from these last two days! I’m going to go take a nap now. See ya tomorrow!

We’re Covered by the Blood of the Lamb

Revelation 5:1-9:21

“These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” Revelation 7:14

OK, of all times to be reading Revelation, I would NOT have chosen it to be now. But it wasn’t my choice as to when we would read these books, it was God’s. Some of you may be familiar with the lunar events set to happen starting this week, but some of you may not. I am not entirely familiar with them, but I am familiar with the word of God, and the times, they are a-changin’.

On April 15th, of all dates, there will be the first of four blood moons over the next 18 months. Each of these moon will be visible in Jerusalem and will appear on Jewish holidays (this first one is Passover). Now while this has happened before with somewhat unpleasant results, there have never been four in eighteen months with a solar eclipse in the center. In today’s reading we saw:

“When He opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. The sky vanished like a scroll that it being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.” (Revelation 6:12-14)

Matthew 24:29 says, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” [Read Matthew 24 & 25 for more.]

Next in Revelation and the events that take place after the signs in the heavens, we read in chapter seven about an “angel descending from the rising of the sun, with the seal of the living God, and he called in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm earth and sea saying, ‘Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.’ And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel:” (Revelation 7:2-4)

At this point revelation rolled over me in a wave of hopelessness. “Lord, 144,000 are so few in comparison to the entire population of the world! I want to be one of those sealed… but there is absolutely no way I could ever earn something like that.” I was crushed because I knew I was right. There is absolutely positively nothing that I can say or do to earn the privilege of being sealed and protected from the trouble that is to befall our planet.

Verse 5-8 is a list; the list of how many people from each of the tribes of Israel will be sealed. There will be 12,000 from each of the twelve tribes. The seals are for the Jews, the pure bloodline of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. And there goes the last of my hope for a seal of salvation from tribulation. I’m not Jewish.

Buuuut, verse 9-10 says: “After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!'”

Who is this great multitude that no one could number, from EVERY tribe, people and nation? “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” Revelation 7:14


While I know a good deal about the Bible, I certainly do NOT claim to be an expert of any kind. Especially when it comes to the book I avoid the most – Revelation. However, according to what I recall David Jeremiah preaching about this passage of scripture, from this point forward there is no mention of the church on Earth.

There are MANY speculations of “The Rapture” as most refer to it. But, in Matthew 24 Jesus explains it like this, “Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left.” Wouldn’t the “unexplainable” sudden disappearance of a “great multitude” of people from all over the globe cause the greatest tribulation imaginable? There’s no detective alive that would be able to come up with any natural clue as to how it happened or why.

In Luke 21:36 (NKJV) we read the words of Jesus, “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

There is hope my friend.

“Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne will shelter them with His presence. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore, the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd and He will guide them to springs of Living Water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” Revelation 7:15-17

“He who sits on the throne will shelter them with His presence.” We may not have His seal on our foreheads, but we’ve got something MUCH better. We’ve got His blood on our hearts. We have His Holy Spirit as a seal IN us. At this very moment, we are being protected in the best and most complete way possible, from whatever tribulation comes our way, colossal or minute.

We’re covered by the blood of the Lamb!

Hosanna to our crucified and risen King! 😀


Happy Palm Sunday.

The One Who Conquers

Revelation 1:1-4:11

“the one who conquers…” Revelation 2:7, 11, 17 & 26; 3:5, 12 & 21

Throughout today’s reading the phrase, “the one who conquers” kept popping up. And by the end I wanted to be one of “the ones who conquered” because they are rewarded with some pretty great stuff!

“To the one who conquers…

*Revelation 2:7 … I will grant to eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the paradise of God.” – Yes please!

*Revelation 2:11 … will not be hurt by the send death.” – Yup, definitely want that!

*Revelation 2:17 … I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.” – Cool! Yeah!

*Revelation 2:26-28 … and keeps My words to the end, to him I will give authority over nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from My Father. And I will give him the morning star.” – Wow! Seriously?

*Revelation 3:5 … will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the Book of Life. I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” – Hee! Hee! Hee! Hee!

*Revelation 3:12 … I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem which comes down from My God out of heaven, and My own new name.” – Eternally in close physical proximity with the Father? Oh my!

*Revelation 3:21 … I will grant him to sit with Me on My throne, as I also conquered and sat down with My Father on His throne.” – OK, seriously, where do I sign up!?! How do I become one who conquers? What does that mean?

Well, if you’ve heard of Nike shoes you’re already semi-familiar with this word. It’s the Greek word “nee-kay” and it means: to conquer, to carry off the victory, come off victorious; for example 1) Christ’s victory over His foes 2) Christians that hold fast to their faith even unto death against the power of their foes, and temptations and persecutions 3) when one is arraigned or goes to law, to win the case, maintain one’s cause.

You’ve heard me say before, the Bible defines the Bible. So to better answer my question of how to be a conqueror I pulled up all the other instances of this word in the New Testament, all 28 of them. Most of them simply helped explain the meaning of the word: Luke 11:22, Romans 3:4 & 12:21, 1 John 2:13-14. But then there were others that really delved deep into the heart of my quest.

1 John 4:4 “Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

When we are from God, His children, we are able to overcome and conquer because God is in us and helping us along the way.

1 John 5:4 “For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world – our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?”

So to be one who conquers, you must be born again by believing in your heart – which justifies you, and confessing that belief in Jesus with your mouth – which saves you. For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. (Romans 10:9-13)

Revelation 12:11 “They conquered [the accuser of the brothers] by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.”

Our testimony of how the blood of the Lamb has changed and saved our lives conquers Satan.

But the big key I found was in the interesting fact that John used the word nee-kay more than anyone else in the New Testament, 21 of the 24 verses that contain nee-kay are John’s. Why is that an important fact? John is known as the beloved disciple, he understood the power of the Truth that God first loved us, not the other way around. He discovered that while there is power in our love for Him, our real strength is in the knowledge of how much Jesus loves us! And when we’re expressing that love that we first experienced for ourselves, Satan’s power is destroyed in our lives.

Romans 8:37 is a really fun verse for nee-kay, because it’s not actually just nee-kay alone. It’s hooper-nee-kay. Just like hyper in English, the word hooper is often used as a prefix to words to add emphasis to their meaning. Sensitive – hypersensitive, active – hyperactive, conquerer – more than conquers.

“In all these things we are more than conquerors (hooper-nee-kay) through Him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39

So while choosing to trust Christ with our salvation and voicing that choice makes us conquerors; receiving God’s amazing and abundant love for us makes us hyperconquerers!

Praise God we are loved!!!
