By The Washing of Water

By The Washing of Water

Ephesians 5:26 NIV gives a key that I have used often this week: That we can be made holy and clean. We all want that. I love this picture of the mighty roaring ocean waters swirling and washing around the rocks. Scientifically we know that action does eventually wear down the rock and it scours it completely with every wave. As women whose lives are often filled with such dirt and grime from life itself, we often feel the need…

Unexpected First Day

Unexpected First Day

God always has surprises for you and He knows what you can do even when you don’t. In fact, you wouldn’t have done it! So, I am hot and sweaty, no makeup, it’s 5 pm and I am searching the facility’s kitchen for ice and water. I hear a soft voice speaking “I’m looking for Ms. Liz?” Somehow the first clients I had scheduled for the next day were told to come today by their supervisor and this was the…

Update-Hope’s Door, a Work in Progress

Update-Hope’s Door, a Work in Progress

“Don’t be nervous; Moses started out as a basket case!” While we wait for things to take shape in our offices on Kings Home Drive we are forging ahead in outreach. On April 29 we spent the day with eight precious ladies who are residents in Kings Home Tuscaloosa shelter. It seemed obvious at first that they were there because they were mandated. Many things had gone wrong. We could not get childcare and at the last minute used our…

Still Standing in Amazement

Still Standing in Amazement

There we were, little lights blinking on above the altar.  Mitch had begun to play the piano tenderly, lightly, beautifully. Then you could feel momentum build, the chorus became a rolling chant of adoration…within 3 minutes we had moved into the Presence of Jehovah. As the person everyone looked to for leadership, I was terrified. Worship was going beyond the traditional, marching majestically into the supernatural….was I supposed to do something? I could not make my feet move, I turned…

Ephesians 3:20 God Did More Than We Could Imagine!

Ephesians 3:20 God Did More Than We Could Imagine!

    Yesterday we had our “catch up” seminar that was designed just to bless and teach the Kings Home women that had not been able to come in November. We also had girls from two youth homes at Kings Home. It was beautifully decorated once again by our friends to Hope’s Door and the food was outstanding. We were organized and ready. As we began the second teaching of the day one young woman spoke up and said “Well…

A Promise Appears

A Promise Appears

As I was praying in the spirit with two friends who are intercessors I began to see a vision. A shaft of light began to descend from heaven on the left side of my view. It formed suddenly as though it had reached its destination and all below it was dark. What was below it appeared to be earth and I was on the outside of earth watching the light almost come down with a slight bump as it touched…

2016 Path to Joy

2016 Path to Joy

I follow a blog posted by Victoria Price, Vincent Price’s daughter whose pursuit this last year has been joy. She uses her camera and captures things that speak to her as she goes on her daily walk. I have to say I envy her stamina and her consistency in walking and thinking and discovering new things every day to be joyful about. So, this year I will make this a resolution. Among a few others I am resolving to keep…

The Importance of Staying On Guard!

The Importance of Staying On Guard!

I have been afflicted with 3 things that put me down physically in the last 3 weeks. I have to look at things spiritually when that happens. Something is going on; there are two messages here- I am depressed and I can follow that down a physical path of illness or I am about to enter a better relationship where God can use me in His plan at Kings Home and through Hope’s Door. I of course will take the…

Hosea 2:15 and the archway

Hosea 2:15 and the archway

In 2005 I felt a need to take a personal spiritual retreat. I have often found a convent to be a good venue for this type of journey. I found a beautiful one in Holy Trinity, Alabama. I drove the 3 hours and found the lovely site situated in a woody area with a walking path down to a large pond. I was there 3 days and sought God often in the chapel and on the paths surrounding the convent….
