I am so relived to have finally completed this study. If you have been following this study from the beginning, you could probably see that I had no idea where this was going to go. I honestly thought it would be a five part series; I didn’t realize it would take us over 3 months. But I count it all good as I have personally … Continue reading The Proverbs 31 (Virtuous) Woman Conclusion!
I can hardly believe it my myself, but it looks like we are drawing very near the end of this study! Wow, what an enlightening journey it has been. Thank you for joining me. Proverbs 31:28-29 (NKJ): Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her: 29 “Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all.” Her children … Continue reading And They Will Call Her Blessed!
I will be so glad when this post is done today. I don’t know why, but I find this topic physically and emotionally draining. It absolutely takes everything out of me when I write or speak on it (in a good way). I have been a Christian for most of my life. I don’t remember a time when I didn’t know the Lord. When I … Continue reading Understanding Grace, Obedience, and the Law (Conclusion)
First of all, I would like to apologize for leaving you hanging. On Wednesday I led you all to believe I would be finishing this up on Thursday, but I forgot it was Thankful Thursday. I then intended to finish up on Friday, but it was just not coming together. It has always been my practice to not post anything unless I was 100% sure … Continue reading Understanding Grace, Obedience, and the Law (part 3)
Man, oh man, it is Thursday again! What are you thankful for today? Some weeks, this post is super easy; other weeks it takes more effort. Today is one of those weeks (the second). To be honest, I feel super ungrateful to be anything less than thankful. After all, God has meet all my physical needs and given me a lot of my wants. Today … Continue reading Thankful Thursday-Week 24 (9/19/13)
As I promised, today we will be looking hard at grace and obedience and how together they will help us become stronger Christians. (Please read yesterday’s intro to see kind of where we are going this week.) Titus 3:5. “ Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy, He saved us.” Ephesians 2:8, “ For by grace you have … Continue reading Understanding, Grace, Obedience, and the Law (Part 2)
Okay, some people have asked me about posting the message I gave at a church earlier this month. Unfortunately, I did not think to record it, so I just decided I would post a written version. Now, this written message is a little different from the one I gave verbally as I am not under a time constraint here and the Holy Spirit changed a … Continue reading Understanding Grace, Obedience, and the Law (Introduction)
Proverbs 31:27 (NLT): She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness. Okay, I think we covered this one thoroughly in Proverbs 31:13-19. Please go back and read the older post covering those verses to refresh your memory if need be. I think this verse is just an emphasis of what we already learned: A virtuous woman’s first priority after God is … Continue reading Less Me Time and more God and Family Time

I expecting God to show … Continue reading Friday Funnies
It is Thursday once again and time to give praises of thanksgiving to our glorious God! Today I find myself thankful that God is dependable. I trust he goes before me in all I do and I know he has a plan for my life. I take great comfort in that knowledge. It is also why I am confident to say that no matter what … Continue reading Thankful Thursday-Week 23 (9/12/13)
