Pumping Spiritual Iron

 by Macy Johnson

“We also rejoice in our sufferings,

because we know that suffering produces perseverance.”

(Romans 5:3 NIV)


In Jonathan Cahn’s The Book of Mysteries he provides insight into “The Resistance Secret.” He writes, “When you exercise the qualities of God against resistance, it causes you to grow stronger.”

“This is what the Lord says to me:

‘Go, post a lookout and have him report what he sees.’”

(Isaiah 21:6 NIV)


GOAL is an acronym for Get Out And Look! This expression is used to remind drivers to get out of their truck and look before backing up. My husband, Jeff, and I have a list of procedures to help set up and take down our camper. On the set up list is written: “Pull trailer to site – GOAL – Get Out And Look! Take your time!”

Close Enemies

 by Macy Johnson

“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves.

Therefore be as shrewd as snakes

and as innocent as doves.”

(Matthew 10:16 NIV)


My husband and I watched an episode of Designated Survivor on Netflix. Enemies of the new President of the United States were coming out of the woodwork like roaches. I was surprised when the reluctant leader of the free world selected a new Chief of Staff. He chose the ringleader of politicians who made his life miserable! My thought was, “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.” Then I realized the newly-appointed President probably made a very wise choice.

Changed Minds

 by Macy Johnson

“When the king of Egypt was told that the people had fled,

Pharaoh and his officials changed their minds about them

and said, ‘What have we done?

We have let the Israelites go and have lost their services!’”

(Exodus 14:5 NIV)


It happened again. My body is falling apart. Twice before I have had a medical procedure and hoped I was done with this issue. Not quite, though. It was time to decide whether to go through the painful process again or not.

God's GPS

 by Macy Johnson

“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?

Yet not one of them will fall to the ground

apart from the will of your Father.”

(Matthew 10:29 NIV)


The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a U.S.-owned utility that provides users with positioning, navigation, and timing services. This system in Google Maps allows my husband and me to track each other on our cell phones.
