PRESSING INTO GOD’S LIGHT

Throughout the ages many people have had God encounter experiences.  Add me to that group.  Here’s what happened. In early June 2015 I went to a fellowship group called Wave Riders in Ormond Beach. We met in a former Bank of America building on Granada Boulevard.  Inside it was kind of dark and cozy with …

A TALE FROM DYSTOPIA (a community or society that is in some important way undesirable or frightening. It is literally translated as “not-good place”, an antonym of utopia)

Pitchers of warm sunlight poured down from the heavens into this mid-July day 2022 in North Dakota. The winter had dragged on forever but finally left this bleak backwater outside Minot.  Svetlana Roshenko placed her hand over her brow to cut the glare and peered at the barren yard through the window bars in her …

TALKING TO GOD

The following is an excerpt from my journal on 7/6/12 I SPEAK:  Abba help me to seek only your love and praises and not that of others.  I hate it when I fish for compliments and praise from others.  How lame is that?  We both know where this comes from….the lack of such things as …

My Big Fat Italian-American Holidays!

Oh how I remember the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays in our 2-bedroom walk-up apartment in Ozone Park, NY in the 1950’s and 60’s. Mom and Dad bought mega amounts of food for a huge family dinner and somehow made it all fit in a small white Shelvadore refrigerator. Dad, affectionately called “The Mayor”, called his …

Miracles Happen!

The dryness was almost palpable….irregular devotions, a lack of spirit-filled prayers, missing worship services, etc; my spirit cries out, “G-d where are you?” It’s a rhetorical qustion as I know He is right here with me. If anything it should be Him asking “Tovah, where are YOU?” Lately each day seems exactly like the one …

Better is One Day in Your Courts (than 1,000 anywhere else)

What does it mean to spend a day in HIS courts? To me it means spending as much of the day in sweet communion with HIM. To wake up and speak HIS name, thank HIM for the new day, for my health, home, family, friends and job…to acknowledge to HIM that every good thing in …

The Inner Conversation

It was Fall 2002 and Pat Pritchard, a prophetess, came to our area.  Women especially gravitated to her for her words of comfort and advice.  About 20 of us had a house meeting and she exhorted us to keep journals of what we sensed G-d was telling us.  I took this advice and made entries …

The Teshuvah Trilogy – Part I – Ship of Fools

Teshuvah – The root word is the Hebrew “shoov” which means to return. It combines both aspects of forgiveness: turning from evil and turning toward good. <I love to reread this dream I wrote into a memory book. It occurred sometime in the 1980's. Because I committed my heart and life to Yeshua in June …

The Teshuvah Trilogy – Part III – Swing Low, Sweet Motorcycle…coming for to carry me home

Teshuvah – The root word is the Hebrew “shoov” which means to return. It combines both aspects of forgiveness: turning from evil and turning toward good. Many were the times the Lord tried to get my attention through dreams.  Such was the case with the following dream which I had in the late 1970’s. I …
