{Photo credit A.L. from Unsplash.com} {Day 29} “This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” ~ Joshua 1:9 NLT   I’ll never forget the day in 2019, when I pounded widely on my steering wheel, yelling out to God. Looking a […]

Say What? {Day 29}

{Day 23} “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and sound mind.” ~ 2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV   I don’t want to worry anymore. Especially about my health. Or money. Or my kids acting like kids. Everywhere I turn there is something I could fret over. Like […]

Set Your Spirit Free {Day 23}

{Day 22} “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” ~Proverbs 17:22 NLT   We were still in a scary season of my husband’s unexplainable health issues, where we hopped from doctor to doctor, practically begging someone to find out why he felt like falling asleep each time his […]

{Day 17} “Do everything without complaining and arguing,” ~ Philippians 2:14 NLT It turns out, my breathing problems, extreme fatigue, and upper body swelling after open-heart surgery were caused by a blocked vein called the Superior Vena Cava (SVC). Basically, my blood flow was restricted from my heart to the rest of my body from […]

Everything? {Day 17}

{Day 16} “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” ~ James 1:2-4 NLT Full confession. I used to crinkle my nose at […]

Pure Joy is an Option {Day 16}

{Day 15} “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” ~ Isaiah 26:3 NLT “Dabney…how much money is two quarters and a dime,” my cardiologist asked me each day he visited my hospital room after my open-heart surgery.

Back in November, each blog (well, devotional) I posted no longer magically appeared in your inbox. Ack. Somehow I accidently did something that deleted this handy-dandy feature. Well. I think I’m back. And I will be posting (again) my devos to bring you up to speed. My prayer is that these messages are helping someone. […]

Ack. And, {Day 13}.

{Day 15} “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” ~ Isaiah 26:3 NLT “Dabney…how much money is two quarters and a dime,” my cardiologist asked me each day he visited my hospital room after my open-heart surgery.   Eyes wide, I stared at my husband, silently […]

Perfect Peace {Day 15}

{Day 11} “Yes, come,” Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you […]

Where Are You Focusing? {Day 11}

{Day 4} “The tongue has the power of life and death.” ~ Proverbs 18:21a NIV I wish someone would have warned me about what strangers might say that morning I walked into the welfare office to register for food stamps. Since our income was cut in half when I stopped working to start treatment, we […]
