I allowed anxiety to gather grass and straw and build a tangled nest in my heart. No major problems plagued me, but tiny remnants of fear and questions about how God works in and through me swirled in my mind.

With my pen, journal, and Bible in hand, I sat on the deck and asked God to help me fight fear and learn to trust Him more. I then heard the first notes of a concert.  

The performer sang to an audience of one—me. A little sparrow belted out an aria, and as he tilted his head upward and increased his volume, I chuckled and named him Pavarotti.

Our loving Teacher used my little Pavarotti Sparrow to emphasize five important truths.

How to Win Supernatural Victories When Outnumbered by an Enemy

 by Barbara Latta @barbaralatta

Do you ever feel as if you are outnumbered by life? Kids get sick, bills need to be paid, traffic is congested, fatigue plagues our bodies, and yes, people we love pass away. These are not battles we fight with military weapons, but they are battles we must face and overcome. When we feel outnumbered, we can lose heart and see no way to win.

Promises From God's Word For a Parental Legacy


by Barbara Latta

The Faithfulness of God series.

As mothers we have the capacity to criticize ourselves for not being the perfect parent. Our minds can accuse us better than, satan, the enemy of our souls.

But none of us are perfect, and God knows that. We can hold on to promises from God’s Word to leave a parental legacy as the mother and grandmother of Timothy did.

Earthly Seasons Teach Us How to Withstand the Challenges of Life

 by Barbara Latta

After a cold winter, spring has arrived in full force. New growth, beautiful blooms, and warm weather invite people to get outside and soak up some sunshine.

Last week, Ken and I stumbled upon two festivals where the landscape was decorated with a rainbow of color as acres and acres of ground was covered in tulips.

The creativity of God showed out.

Other than tropical and arctic climates, the world endures changing seasons, and each range has a purpose.

Earthly seasons can teach us how to withstand the challenges of life. We go through transitions, but they don’t always bring circumstances we like. But when we learn to lean on our Creator as the gardener of our soul, we can learn from these seasons when we follow His directions for nourishing the soil of our hearts.
