Welcome to Encounters with God!

As a spiritual director and writer, my passion centers around people hearing God and growing in intimacy with Him. I want you to know His delight in you.

Let’s go on an adventure together, one that explores those ideas.  How do you become attentive to His presence and delight in your life?  I want to share some of the ways I have experienced those encounters and hope you’ll share your encounters, too.

What are you looking for?

My desire is that you grow closer to Him in your day-to-day walk and that we do that together.

The main places we’ll visit on our journey together come from Colossian 1:9-12 The Voice, although I am certain other scriptures will prompt an idea now and then!

We have not stopped praying for you.

Prayer, ways to pray, and praying for each other connect us to God.  It’s how we develop that relationship and friendship with Him. Encounters with God will often explore prayer, talking to God and Him talking back to you. I love having chats with Jesus!

Father, may they clearly know Your will and achieve the height and depth of spiritual wisdom and understanding. 

My word for the year happens to be “wisdom”. I invite you on my journey to understand what gaining wisdom can look like. Let’s seek out what knowing God’s will could look like for you.

May their lives be a credit to You, Lord; and what’s more, may they continue to delight You by doing every good work and growing in the true knowledge that comes from being close to You.

What does “good work” look like? Have you considered that your work and actions delight God?  Imagine that for a moment. Together we’ll explore your passions and ways you delight God and as well as you can enjoy His delight.

Strengthen them with Your infinite power, according to Your glorious might, so that they will have everything they need to hold on and endure hardship patiently and joyfully.

None of the things going on in this world happen without hardship so together we’ll explore how to access His strength and power, How can we hold on, and what it can look like to do so patiently and joyfully?  Certainly not an easy task, yet it is possible.

Thank You, Father, as You have made us eligible to receive our portion of the inheritance given to all those set apart by the light.

Finally, in Encounters with God, let’s explore together gratitude. Where do you find yourself thankful?

What benefits can you receive?

Every day, I believe, you can benefit from and experience an Encounter with GodI  Do you believe that? He’s not a genie in a bottle, yet He longs to be our friend, peace-maker, overcomer, light in the darkness.  I know I don’t always have my eyes and ears open to notice those encounters.  I want these writings to help you and I be more attentive to His presence and delight. We can become more intimate with Him.

Our beginning destinations on our journey will be prayer conversations, gaining wisdom, insight, and understanding; exploring good work and passions; discovering His strength and power, and enduring hardships with patience and joy.

And so, here we go, with God leading the way, Jesus interceding and the Holy Spirit providing the power.

I am so glad you’re taking the journey with me.
