Valentine’s Heart Wishes

As I am writting this day, February 14, many will “celebrate” Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day. Our family exchanged gifts and sentiments and perhaps yours did too. Whether or not you do, the health of your heart matters.

Please check out my brief video (1 min. 18 sec.) to see what I mean and why it matters to you today.

Our heart is the most valuable thing that we have to give away. To receive another’s heart is the most valuable treasure that we can possess. For in that heart we find not a cardiovascular muscle that pumps blood through the body, but the essence of one’s mind, will and emotions. The very center of a person, the core of who they are.

To be entrusted with such a gift is humbling, fearful, fulfilling, and joyous. And if that heart is a whole, healthy heart, the years ahead for that relationship are likely to be many. If that heart is less than whole – a hard, hallow or half heart, challenges will ensue. Softeners will be needed for the hard heart, meaningful substance is needed for the hallow heart and obstacles as well as distractions must be removed from the half heart.

Each heart requires tending and careful grooming for wholeness to occur. It is a process, one that each of us must chose to commit to for wholeness.

I trust that you have and will continue in that process of having and sharing a whole, healthy heart – not just today, on this day of hearts, but everyday.

Happy heart day,



This short lil video, I hope will encourage you to consider in your commitments – not just being committed to the goal or product (like loosing weight), but remaining strongly committed to the process by which that goal will be reached. Without commitment to the long-term process, the goal will never be reached.

Go ahead, click it on now.

The truth revealed here is – to commit our life to the Lord is a process of rolling our cares, weakensses, fears and controls onto the Lord. Much like rolling a stone on a road. It is a process of persistent rolling and trusting. It is a commitment to continue rolling things upon Him, rather that carry that heavy stone around each day. It is a decision to stick with it (the process) as well as to reach our goal (being free of burdens) and trusting Him.

Psalms 37:5 says, “Commit your ways to the Lord and He will bring it to pass.” In fact, that word “commit” in the Hebrew is “gilgal” which means – “to roll away, roll off, remove; to trust.” (H1556) So when we commit our life to Him, we are literally rolling our burdens, cares, and controls off of our mind and back and onto Him. That is the process, and our trusting the Lord to bring things to pass is the goal or product.

The cool thing is that in John 20, we see that Mary Magdelene, a committed follower of Jesus, during probably one of her darkest times, early one morning, following the death of Jesus, came of her own volition to the tomb where He was. And what did she find? “The stone had been rolled away.”

Isn’t is interesting that that phrase is used!? The very rolling away of her burdens onto Jesus while He was alive and her commitment to that process no matter what, led Mary into a situation where God literally rolled away the stone and brought to pass what she hoped for – the resurrection of Jesus.

God brought it to pass because she committed her way(s) to the Lord.

Could it be said that her commitment to the process of trusting God actually rolled away the stone? I don’t know. But could it be said that your commitment to rolling your cares onto God will produce a similiar outcome in your life?


As we persist in rolling our cares upon Him we too will find God will bring it to pass. He will take care of things.

That’s a deal I will take any day.

How’s your commitment to the process?


Who Do You Trust with Your Life?

One of the goals for me in 2023 in regards to my teaching videos is for them to be wise and easy to swallow, inspirational words. (Proverbs 13:2 TPT) Translation – short, easy to follow, revelation-knowledge posts.

These will be shared on other social media sites in their required formatting, but will also be shared here for you to glean from. Again, I trust that you will find inspiration and refreshment here Under Debra’s Palm.

Here’s our first video for the year –

Trusting Him through another year together,


Seeing Things From a Different Angle

As we embark on another trip around the sun, I will be taking these first 2 weeks to prayerfully consider our direction for 2023.

Therefore, I have selected to share this encouraging video again, in hopes that it will encourage you as you set out in this fresh new year.

May you have new eyes to see how He wants to use you this year.

Lord. open our eyes to see…


Starting this New Year Debt Free

Happy New Year to You!

As we embark on another trip around the sun, I will be taking these first 2 weeks to prayerfully consider our direction for 2023.

Therefore, I have selected to share the number 1, most viewed video that I have posted, in hopes that it will encourage you (again) as you set out in this fresh new year. It’s topic is timeless and powerful.

There are many types of debt, aren’t there? In this video, we will address what I consdier to be the most important debt we have – the debt of forgiveness. So, here again is, “The Power of Forgiveness”.

May we all walk this year debt free and abounding in mercy, compassion and forgiveness.

God Bless,


The Last 2 Warnings (of the Beatitudes)

The Beatitudes, or Sermon on the Mount conclude with Jesus giving us four warnings. We spoke last week about the first two: 2 Gates: Choosing either the narrow gate or wide gate and 2 Prophets: Choosing either fales teachers or truth teachers.

Here are the last two warnings: 2 kinds of disciples and 2 foundations. Check it out and spend some time in self-evaluation.

Thank you for your time and interest, I truly appreciate it.

Please message me if you have any ideas or requests for topics that you would like to see addressed, that would help to equip you spiritually.

Grateful for you,
