I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying ‘occupy’. I’ve had this phrase written on a sticky note for a few weeks, awaiting clarification before I released it. I’m learning not to race to release everything God whispers. “Owning is one thing, occupying is quite different.” Allow me to unpack […]
Proverbs 25:21-22 If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; For in doing so, you will heap coals of fire upon his head, and the Lord will reward you (Amplified Bible, classic edition). As a hippy-chick, ’70’s teenager, I had […]
The new year is underway. My focus here on Healing Writer is to encourage and equip you in your journey in maintaining a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. And if you don’t have that, maybe something you read here will stir you to want it. I enjoy praying. It’s one […]

We live in frightening times. People murdered for their western values and lifestyle. But our true enemy is fear itself. As a Christian, I rely on the truth of God’s word to refocus my fearful mind. Read what Psalm 91 from TLB promises God’s people.
Let this be our goal: “Who thru faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions (oh yeah, thats what I am talking ’bout), quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight (come on!)
