Tomorrow I will start my 31 Days Challenge (Nester’s 31 Day Challenge), in which I will post every day in October regarding a theme of my choosing. I had a few ideas going in yesterday and I was pretty set on my topic, and then I read something on Facebook that solidified it: “This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and … Continue reading 31 Day Challenge Preview
I’ m not going to lie; this week has been ROUGH! My daughter got her first broken heart. Let me just say, those who say your first broken heart is the hardest are not telling the truth. Your daughter’s first broken heart is the absolute hardest. I don’t think I have ever felt more useless. On top of that my daughter’s childhood best friend was … Continue reading My God is Greater
Yesterday, we talked about how God wants to be the center of our lives. He doesn’t want to be at the top of your list, he wants to be the list. I also shared my belief that in order to live a Christ-centered life you must have an on-going relationship with Him and have Holy Spirit. Yes, Holy Spirit, the Uncle Eddie (Cousin Eddie) of … Continue reading My Holy Spirit Experience
I am listening to the audio version of The Shack by William P. Young, and one concept from yesterday’s reading (listening) really got me thinking. [Yes, I realize that it is a fiction book; however there are some great insights in there.] God doesn’t want to be the top of our hierarchy pyramid, he wants to be the center of our carousel. “I don’t just … Continue reading How to Get a Christ-Centered Life
I know it has been a few weeks, but I haven’t forgotten about our open study on Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman. For those who are new to my blog, we are currently discussing the book Not a Fan. As the title indicates, it is more than a book review but far from an official book study. In Chapter 8, Kyle takes a long … Continue reading Beyond the Book Review: Not a Fan: An Open Invitation
Well it is official; I am currently a stay-at-home mom and wife. While it may not make sense to some around me, I know the time was right because God called me to it. Actually I had felt and heard God tell me to quit my job long before I ever did it; I was just too confused to follow through. If I heard God’s … Continue reading My Sheep Hear My Voice
Below is an article I am preparing for my church newsletter. Please understand that I am not an expert of any kind in this field. I struggle to understand the complexities of these types of issues, which is the reason why I have to simplify it. Some co-workers commented it helped them get a clearer understanding, so I thought I would share it with you … Continue reading ISIS Simplified
Yesterday I shared: John 13:34-35 (NIV)-“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” I further shared that this verse meant that the world will know we are disciples by our love. If we are truly disciples, we … Continue reading Are you a Christian or a Disciple?
John 13:34-35 (NIV)-“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Jesus gave a new command for us to love one another. Jesus also made a statement that many of us or quick to dismiss: ‘They will know … Continue reading They Will Know We Are Christians By Our Love?
“Do we want to make a point with our opinion or make a difference with Jesus? Let’s check the amount of love in our words.”-Lysa TerKeurst I am very hesitant to pen words today as I am saddened by a lot of what I have read today in the “blogosphere.” At what lengths will we go to get people’s attention and divert readers to our … Continue reading When Christians Attack
