Sorry folks, I don’t have anything profound to share today. Nope, just a verse that God brought to my attention. Feel free to share any thoughts and feelings you may have on this one. While I may not have any profound thoughts to add, I do think this one verse says alot. While I may not have much to share, I have been busy catching … Continue reading James 2:13
Last night my pastor reminded us that we need to be the light. It is easy to jump on the complaining train, but as followers of Christ we are called to be different; we are called to be the light in any and every situation. Matthew 5:14-16 -“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do … Continue reading Who We Are
Are you satisfied in Jesus Christ? It seems like such a simple question; one that requires little thought before answering. However, I want you to take a moment to think about it. Wait! Some of you may be wondering what it means to be “satisfied in Jesus Christ.” I could give you a long complicated and very thorough answer, but today I feel like keeping … Continue reading Are You Satisfied?
I saw this on Facebook and it reminded me of why I am doing such an in-depth study on Not A Fan by Kyle Idleman. You see, many of us think we are followers of Jesus Christ, when in reality, we may be only fans, believers at the most. I know the heart of the person who posted this picture. I know this person did … Continue reading Beyond the Book Review:Not A Fan:Narrow or Broad?
I have joined another Proverbs 31 Bible Study (once again a week late.) We are studying Lysa TerKeurst’s book Am I Messing Up MY Kids. While Lysa is one of my absolute favorite authors I was not planning on doing this study. Why? Well, honestly, parenting is NOT my forte. It is not something I feel confident in and definitely not something I feel comfortable … Continue reading This is All I Have to Give
Yesterday I caught the tail end of the radio show Radical with David Platt, which was originally aired on Moody Radio. Unfortunately, I had been scanning radio stations and just happened to catch a little piece of it, and I can’t even tell you what radio station it was aired on or which radio cast it was (without going back and listening to all podcasts). … Continue reading Saved From Hell or Saved From Sin?
When I said I was going “beyond the book review,” I must have really meant beyond, way beyond. Here we are many weeks later and I am still discussing Not A Fan by Kyle Idleman. Yes, it is just that good. In Chapter 6 we get to discuss the third part of the Holy Trinity: Holy Spirit. God and Jesus are easy to discuss, but … Continue reading Beyond the Book Review: Not A Fan: Holy Spirit
“Every day we make choices. Then our choices make us.” – Lysa TerKeurst, “The Best Yes” Such a powerful statement packed into a few words! My question for you today is “Do our choices define who we are? Honestly, at first I was tempted to say “yes.” But, as I thought about it, I quickly realized that God is the only one that defines us; … Continue reading Every Choice Counts
Well, it is good to be back. As some of you may have noticed, my blog was silent last week. Some have been expressing some concerns, and I want to apologize for not letting you all know ahead of time that I would not be posting. I did intend to post and I took my computer along, however, when we got there I felt it … Continue reading “You Are No Christian!”
To be honest, I don’t have a lot to say today. Surprising, I know! It is not that I am not feeling close to the Lord or that He hasn’t been working in me. On the contrary, He has been working hard on me and in me this week. I am still trying to take it all in and sort it out. There are four … Continue reading Jesus, Use Me I’m Yours
