My Experience with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

Right now, we are in that same period of time of “waiting” as the disciples were. The 10 days between Jesus’ ascension and the day of Pentecost when “The Promise of the Father, the Holy Spirit, came and baptized the disciples.” (Acts 2)

I’ve never put into written form, my personal experience with the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Nor do I recall ever sharing publicly the specifics of it – how it happened for me, or what it was like (as best as my limited human vocabulary can describe it.) But today, I felt led to. So here goes. Continue reading

2020: The Year of Reconciliation

I wanted to share something I believe the Lord has shown me for 2020. I woke up super early on the morning of December 19th, picked up a pen, and these words just began to flow. Since then, this theme of reconciliation has not left me. This morning, I felt it was time to release it. I believe 2020 will be a year where we experience an unexpected level of grace for reconciliation. There’s another word I keep hearing that in a way, is tied to this same concept, and that word is “wonder”. Connect the two, and we have a picture of acts of reconciliation that are literally going to fill us with and cause us to wonder. Here’s what else I wrote that morning: Continue reading


Harmony of the Gospels by Linda G. Riddle

IMG_2082“The person who follows Me in faith, believing in Me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these…” John 14:12 

The message and ministry of the Kingdom of God are two sides of the same coin. We learn best how to operate in both by observing the life and ministry of Jesus. Not just what He taught, but also what He did.

Harmony of the Gospels is a guided study through Matthew, Mark, Luke & John. This book takes the events recorded in each of these gospels and places them side by side, in the order in which they occurred. The study includes a Bible reading plan, study notes, devotionals, and space to journal within each chapter. (Volume 1 in the Series)

The Floods of Life, Pt 2

There’s always been a part of me that has never liked accepting the fact that floods can come. (Again, I’m referring to spiritual floods in this series.) Especially as a faith-filled, Spirit-filled, overcoming believer. I’d rather think myself, my life, my family impervious to the waters. And if I should ever face them, I’d rather focus on praying that God part the waters like He did for Moses and the children of Israel. But here’s the truth: the storms will come and parting of the waters is not always what we are promised. Continue reading

Planting Ourselves

“The church, you see, is not peripheral to the world; the world is peripheral to the church…” Ephesians 1:23 MSG

Several years ago, this one, simple verse changed my perspective about church. Growing up, I’d always heard about the importance of going “to” church, but never about being planted “in” church. Little did I know, there is a difference; and it’s about much more than weekend attendance.   Continue reading

Purim: A Time of Divine Reversal

Purim is 14 days from today and so last night, my family and I began a reading plan together which will take us through the book of Esther in these days leading up to Purim. I wanted to share that reading plan with you (available below as a free bookmark download) and also share some of what I feel God prompting me to around this holiday. Continue reading

Raleigh Coming Back to Life

When my family and I first moved to the Raleigh, NC area, (three years ago this July) I began asking God to give me prophetic insight as to what He originally had in mind for this area, and what, prophetically, He wanted to do now. I researched the history of the city, pulled out maps, making note of boundary lines, studied the topography, etc. and began looking for anything I could get my hands on that had been spoken prophetically over both Raleigh and over North Carolina. Seeing as it’s the capital, this is the gateway to the state. What happens here permeates.

There are a few words I’ve gotten clarity on and that I have held to and been personally praying and interceding over. This year, however, I finally feel led to release them. I know this series of blog posts will speak specifically to those in my beautiful state, but my hope is that through reading these posts, and how they came about, that God will also give you insight as to how to seek Him prophetically for wherever He has positioned you.   Continue reading

Prophetic Word: Holy Fires Are About To Spark

I believe with all my heart that some great and mighty spiritual fires are about to spark. But I believe the place they are going to be lit and catch aflame will be in very small environments. At least, that’s where they’ll originate from and then they’ll spill out from there. Let me just be clear – this is not an anti-large-crowd message. It’s not an either or, it’s an inclusive both-and. But I believe that over the next 90 days specifically, we need to be intentional about positioning ourselves in small, upper-room type, intimate environments where we can cultivate the spiritual atmosphere and community that will attract this holy fire. Continue reading

Dreaming in Patterns

In interpreting dreams, a very common theme I come across is patterns. Stripes, camouflage, spots, dots, zig-zag patterns just to name a few. These patterns can show up on clothing, accessories, on buildings, or on vehicles. And then there’s those times when we’ll see patterned insects or animals show up in our dreams too. What does all this mean? For example, why would someone appear in a patterned shirt as opposed to just a plain colored one? Is there more meaning behind the patterns we see? Continue reading
