Are you weary and worn out trying to be a good Christ follower? I was.  It’s exhausting. Jesus says, “Come to Me all who are weary and worn out…and I will give you rest.” Matthew 28:11   God gave me this Scripture several months ago. Sometimes you “get it” and sometimes you just “don’t get it“. […]


Let HIM Lead you!

  Are you taking the reins of your life or are you letting God have them?  Are you doing what you want to do or are you doing what God wants you to do?   Give Him your hand and let Him lead you!  Let Him be in charge. He knows the way…the best way!  […]


Let Jesus Calm Your Storm!

  “Say to them that are of a fearful heart…AN ANXIOUS HEART, Be strong, FEAR NOT: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a reward; He will come and save you.”  Isaiah 35:4   God is greater than ANYTHING we face…or fear…or worry about. His Word given to our soul (mind, will, […]

“I am saying to the PRISONERS of DARKNESS…Come out!  I am giving you your FREEDOM!” Isaiah 49:9   I’ve been a prisoner of darkness. I know what it’s like to be depressed….for years! I feel your pain. I hurt for you!  And I know about DELIVERANCE from depression!   I was held in that prison […]

  I have a couple of situations that I’ve been praying about for quiet sometime…and it seems like “nothing is happening!”  God spoke these words to my heart…“Remove the Doubt!”   It made me think. “Am I doubting?”  Is there a feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction for what I am praying for?  Do […]


Still Pressing…

July 21, 2017 holderduo@yahoo.com Hope (encouragement)

  “I PRESS toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 3:14-16   If we are still pressing, that means we haven’t arrived yet. We are reaching, pushing, advancing – we are drawing nearer to the goal of becoming like Jesus.  It’s about constant progress!   Through […]

Sitting on the back porch during my Quiet Time this morning…I felt God’s Presence.  It was as if He was sitting in the chair next to me. I talk to Him as if He is sitting there…because He is. He is my Friend – “a Friend that sticks closer than a brother”.  A Friend that […]


Do you need to TURN?

July 4, 2017 holderduo@yahoo.com Hope (encouragement)

  Hurt people and brokenness are everywhere…it’s overwhelming to me and makes my heart hurt.  I pray and cry over it. I’ve been there…hurting and broken.  I’m so thankful God didn’t give up on me. He kept pursuing me and I finally “TURNED.”  I came to the end of myself. I had no one and […]


Stay Aflame!

Romans 12:11-13 Do you feel like quitting?  DON’T!   Do you feel fatigued, overworked, unable to go on?  Like life is “snuffing the life out of you?”  Do you feel like ceasing everything.  Believe me, I’ve yelled…”Stop the world, I want to get off!” before.   Has your emotional strength and motivation left.   Are you […]


Get Ready!

June 20, 2017 holderduo@yahoo.com Hope (encouragement)

Has something triggered a new season in your life? New responsibilities, new choices, new DREAMS? I feel a SHIFT…to a new season and it’s different…its exciting!   I had a mini vision in worship Sunday morning. I saw Jesus holding a new born baby and then it looked like the baby was being born…with the […]
