Breaking Free from the Bondage of Betrayal

Since January 2014 I have been doing a study on Breaking Free by Beth Moore.  Yes a year is a long time to spend on one book, but I’m not just reading, I’m memorizing the scriptures, answering the questions, doing chapter outlines, and trying to apply all that I am learning.  I cannot move on to the next chapter until I feel like I have … Continue reading Breaking Free from the Bondage of Betrayal

Yes, Virginia, There Is A Devil

If you have been following my blog lately, you may have noticed a little distance, a little discouragement, maybe even a little wining.  Yes, I have been in a little funk.  I have let circumstances around me come in between me and God.  My circumstances , although a little rough right now, do not give me a reason to pout.  The only one who gains … Continue reading Yes, Virginia, There Is A Devil
