Singing Encouragement-Overcoming Fear

Never forget God loves you, we all have opportunity to start again, to call upon His name. Sometimes, obedience involves vulnerability. Mine. Overcoming fear. I am singing 🎶 with Jeremy Camp’s song “Getting Started” ~Debbie Prayer: Father God, thank you for the wooing of your Holy Spirit. Thank you that you never forget us, thank you that you want us. Open our eyes to see ourselves the way that you see us in Your Son, Jesus Christ. In Jesus name. Amen Lyrics for this song Getting Started Are you running 'round in circles with no place to go? Is there a person in the mirror you don't even know? Someone still sees who you are, yeah Were you the kid that was a dreamer, now you don't believe? Are you the lock that got so broken, now you lost the key? Someone still loves who you are, yeah To anyone who ever lost your way To everyone who ever felt ashamed Here's a song for all the broken hearted I believe you're only getting started To anyone who trusts in Jesus' nam

Realigned Focus

At times strength arrives in drops of liquid peace as I worship. Arms extended, heart submitted upward I reach to be cradled by the strong arms of peace that sustain me. By God’s love that restores and renews me. Praying the Word of God will settle the waves assaulting your peace.  The Word of God will reveal the false narrative that floats you into storm filled seas. Be still and know.  Prayer can refocus us when we have been blown off course by the cares of this world and the spiritual intensity of daily life. Spend time with God. He welcomes you and delights that you are seeking Him. Prayer and worship can strengthen you in your journey here on this Earth.  Take time to be still and know that God is God .  The surrender of self to realignment will strip you of false layers, preparing you to rest in the warmth of the LORD’s peace and care. A moment of prayerful focus can realign your day or night. Why not take a moment as you are reading or listening to this to agree in prayer with m

For The Joy Set Before Him

© 2019 Debbie Turner Chavers The Last Supper was a glorious event, a gift to the world to celebrate in remembrance of Jesus Christ and the gift He gave us. The bread and wine, the stripes and the blood of our Redeemer. Remember, it is for us that He died and rose again. Eternally grateful to He who sits on the throne. He who died and rose again, that we might have life eternal in Heaven. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, our Redeemer.

The King in Thorned Splendor

The King in Thorned Splendor © 2019 Debbie Turner Chavers Water-Man series God is a great mystery. Our pearl of great price. Our faith, a path to finding the depths of treasure hid in Him. I am on that journey. When one finds a treasure there is a natural gut reaction to hoard what we have found. Fear arrives with the knowing of the immensity of the value. Yet God would have us tell the world. To overcome the fear we must obey and allow the Living Water contained within the midst of us freedom. Fear is a dam. Fear is a thief. Here is part of my search to find the eternal in the brief interlude that we call life. It seems quite odd to me that anyone would value what I say. So I have struggled to not be selfish, to overcome my disdain of the humbling required. The root, pride. God would have the garden of my heart, mind, spirit and soul free of all such impediments. Therefore I must dare to be bold and cast my fear to the ground from which it came. Treasure is ca


Weeping May Endure For a Night,  But Joy Cometh in the Morning © 2005 Debbie Turner Chavers Psalm 30:5  There are catalyst in every persons life. On June 12, 2019 I was told that my sister had died unexpectedly of a heart attack on the 11th. Silence. No more laughter with my sister. Silence. No more time or opportunities with her. Silence. Until Heaven. Terri was my younger sister by 11 months. My only sibling. We were total opposites in almost everything. I loved her, the gift of her. No matter our difference of opinion on almost every subject in life, I was grateful that she was my little sister. Grief is not always silent. Silence is not always quiet. Silence can reverberate with "Why?" or "I don't understand" and "Help me, God." And He has. Loss is hard. Each loss that has come has been a catalyst. A drawing nearer to my Redeemer. My questions have not been answered, but as I obey, choice by choice I feel His p

Sweet Encouragement

Last night I observed a wonderful thing about honey. If you put several teaspoons of honey in a bowl and cover it with several teaspoons of water and swirl, an amazing thing is revealed. As you swirl the water rapidly over the honey it will image / return to its original honeycomb shape. As I did the experiment I was reminded of the scripture in 2 Timothy to stir up the gift of God within me because our DNA is in the image of God. Persevere. Stir up. Press forward into your destiny. ~Debbie Genesis1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 2 Timothy 1:6-7 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear: but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. ** If you click on the art parable painting title you will be redirected to its website for more information about the painting.
