Words have power. Written words provide proof. You can read them, and reread them whenever you want. They can speak life to someone who needs encouragement. They can speak death to someone who is being deceived. The choice lies within you. How is it that you want people to remember you? Encourager...that is the gift that God has laid on my heart. To use my written, spoken, and/or sung words to lift people up. To be one link in their road to healing, restoration, joy. I have been without those things, and I claim them to be mine again. If you want me to seek God on a prayer for a specific situation...that is why I am here. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to pray God's Word of Life over you.

It's a new day

Hello all! I am so happy to be in a place where God is going to use my writing for His purpose. I have been quite inactive in writing recently...so it is lovely to be back.

I literally have pages and pages of prayers that I have written to God over the last ten years. (Hence the name of my blog.) Then there are the pages that He writes back to me. Amazing! Both are vital. God longs to hear from us. He wants us to pour ourselves out to Him. He requires honesty because we all know that He sees our true self anyway. When we give Him just that...He will reveal Himself to us in a very real way. For me, He guides my pen. He has me write to myself...but not in words that I would normally use on my own. I know it is Him, and I am always grateful for His words when I am finished.

My prayer right now is that I would never become prideful of the words written on these pages. I will type with confidence in the Author that I know fuels my writing. To Him be the glory and honor. I want to fully embrace the gift of encouragement that He has given me through the written word.


  1. It is my great honor to be the first to comment on your blog. I am so very proud of you and count you as my friend. I know that our ages are far different, but that has never meant anything to me in my entire life:) I know that God has huge plans to use you in the lives of others. It is with great anticipation that I will be reading your "blog".

  2. Thank you so much Ruth Ann. You have no idea the many times you have provided deep-seeded encouragement to me. I don't take words lightly...especially from you. I know that you don't say something unless you truely believe it. So, your uplifting words...they cut right through any of the lies that the devil is trying to whisper to me. I am thankful for your friendship! I am so glad you will be one of my faithful followers.

  3. Yay! I'm so excited for you and your new space. I think it is going to be so great, and I look forward to reading. Love ya, sister!

  4. I trust God's timing...and this was the absolute perfect time for me to start. Thanks for the gentle nudge in the right direction. =) I am so glad that God sent me you...way back in 4th grade. We have so many great memories and things that we have helped each other through. I look forward to many more to come. (More the great memories...but I will help you through anything you need as well!) Love you lots...sista!
