Don’t lose your praise

Whatever is happening in your life … whatever the enemy is trying to do to you.. Make sure you don’t lose your praise.   We’re still standing.. +PAX

Not afraid

Next on the healing music tour…a choir that can lift any darkness that attempts to rob you of your peace: The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. My boys and I … wore this tape out back in the day when they were afraid of shadows in the night and…I was too. Like old friends somewhat forgotten, these songs just keep coming up out of my spirit. You know, they say the enemy has to flee in the midst of praise. Remember? It was from the depths of the inner prison, with their feet fastened in stocks, that Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God while the other prisoners listened. Then suddenly, there was a great earthquake and the foundations of the prison were shaken.   And immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s fetters...

Faithful footprints

Continuing on the healing journey of music from my days as a young Christian wife and mother: While some at the synod in Rome are on an apparent mission to distort, or at the very least challenge true Catholic teaching, there are many individuals from every vocation and call of life determined to walk the narrow road. Surrounded by the great cloud of witnesses who have gone before us, we desire to leave behind a faithful footprint for our physical and spiritual children. With so many witnesses in a great cloud all around us, we too then should throw off everything that wears us down and the sin that clings so closely, and with perseverance keep running the race which lies ahead of us. —Hebrews 12:1   As Catholics, our heritage is rich with the lives of...

I want to hear your voice

If you’d like, I’ll take you with me on my healing journey as it’s unfolding. Sometimes, many times…words can no longer suffice when we are suffering through trials and tribulations. Maybe you’re in a place like me where you wonder if any of the work you’ve done for the Lord over the years, most especially for your family, will ever see fruit this side of Heaven. Maybe it looks like the enemy is winning and you’re wondering if the narrow road was- is- worth the price. Do you never think that? No? You’re a better pilgrim than me. I used to try to be strong for the Lord. Imagine that? Ah, but now and then, the suffering becomes so intense, I have no choice but to face my true self and turn to the Lord, completely...

Hope in God

Hope in God

  For those of us who have been cast down in spirit of late, the morning prayer reminded me today ~ “When His strength takes possession of us we will no longer say: Why are you cast down, my soul?   So now that the surging waves of your indignation have passed over us, let us feel the healing calm of Your forgiveness.”   Over and over I read in St Faustina’s diary how it grieves the Lord that His own people don’t trust in Him. We falter so easily when as we see the tide of evil rise beyond our control..and there’s no doubt that it is. The lives of the saints teach me that to live by faith is to be sure of God even, With cries that pierce me to the heart, my enemies revile me, saying to me all the day long: “Where...
