These "inspirations"  have come as a result of my Lord's gentle teaching over the years and I am honored to share them with you. I pray that they may be a vessel through which God can touch your heart with a special blessing as you read and reflect prayerfully upon them.

May God be Glorified!

Whispers of God



It was too late, I had lost my way. My authorities in higher education demanded I study Theology, the "religious" doctrines. I think they thought I was studying God, but as it turned out I was studying man and his crazy ideas about God. It wasn't long before I found out who my true enemies were. Their names were Doubt and Confusion ~ alias Satan. They kidnapped me and kept me hostage.

Where was He? I called on Him; I wept before Him. Wasn't He going to pay my ransom so I could go Home? I should have remembered then my ransom was paid a long, long time ago by the One I felt had deserted me. But Doubt and Confusion had me tied down so tightly I just couldn't pry myself loose.

After what seemed like an eternity, He came to tell me that my eternity belonged to Him. Through His subtleties He tugged, and nudged, and called me into His Presence away from my enemies, to find my way home, to set myself free. He said I had met Him before, that I should meet Him again and that He is all I need to become whole once again. "He" is Jesus, the Son of God, the Son of Man.

Life as the world knows it is coming quickly to an end. It is now the time to utterly cling to our Father in Heaven, for now is the time that faiths will fail giving Satan his invitation to drag us down to the depths of his hell. He wants us, but we have the power to overcome like no others. The power comes from Him who dwells within, the Christ, our forever faithful Friend.

Oh, if only then, when my enemies Doubt and Confusion came to claim my life, I knew what I know now. They wouldn't have had the chance to steal what properly belonged to my Father in Heaven. But I didn't, and I became lost. It was when I was so lost that by God's amazing grace I was found again by Him. Through it all I found out how God had blessed me with teachings so rich in His love. He taught me through tormenting experience that Satan is real and very powerful in his domain which is the world. But my soul will now and forever belong to Heaven and Eternity with my Father which art in Heaven.

Hallelujah, Jody's Home!
