Epiphany is a moment of sudden revelation or insight. Epiphanies, for the most part, can’t happen without a relationship or a foundation with Jesus. He’s the one who works with us and in us and brings us to place where insight takes place. Where revelation comes. I am so grateful that He speaks. That He breathes life into us. That His knowledge, understanding, wisdom and love is never-ending. That He cares deeply, desires to know us and shares His very heart with us. Epiphanies . . .
What I Learned as a Parent: Sometimes I just don’t know how to bring down a mountain, but He does.
What I Learned as a Partner: I can remember what love does.
Verse: If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan? Jeremiah 12:5
Deep Thought: God has big plans for us to run with Him. Into the battles He has already won. I embrace the idea of fighting the good fight in floods where waters rise even though I sometimes gasp for air. In earthquakes where I sometimes loose the ground I am used to walking on. In lightning storms where I sometimes loose my sight. For in these battles, we can learn that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ.

My Prayer to You: God, give us your epiphanies. Lead us to mountains so we can witness your power. Help us remember to love one another, especially those that are closest to us. Give us the passion to run with you into battle. Help us fight our tendency to be weary and lead us to find our strength in You. Help us to count our losses as opportunities to gain in your Kingdom. Help us to run hard with horses in battle, but call on the Eagle to bring us to victory. In Your Holy Name, Amen.
