Today is the start to my most controversial topic to date. (Considering some of my previous posts that is surely saying something.) Just to warn you, due to time and space, this will be a two-parter. Last Tuesday I wrote about King Belshazzar. He was a king who was brought down (once again) by pride, arrogance, the refusal to acknowledge God as the ultimate authority, and the … Continue reading Beware of False Prophets
Nope, this is not the controversial post I was talking about, but it is the lead in to said post. Be sure to check back in on Monday for the great reveal (just kidding…it is now sure to be anticlimactic). There are things going on today I just don’t understand. Today I would like to share the 5 things that are making me go hmmmmm. … Continue reading Things that make me go hmmmm.
Today (tonight) we finally get the most well-known story in Daniel. Yes, yes, it is time for Daniel and the Lions’ Den. At the end, I will also reveal a secret; better yet, a confession. I will also give you a preview of probably the most controversial post I have ever written. So don’t stop reading until the very end. [While the majority of us … Continue reading Do You Fear the Lions’ Den?
Yesterday I shared with you the importance of studying Scripture because all Scripture was “written for our learning.” In school we were taught that is was important to study history because “whoever doesn’t learn from the past is doomed to repeat it.” Well, Biblical history is no different. Have you ever heard the term….the writings on the wall? Well, today, I think that phrase will … Continue reading Don’t Let Ignorance Dictate Your Fate
This week we will be finishing up our time with Daniel (at least for now.) Last week we left off with the story of the Fiery Furnace. Today we will once again be reminded that God is in control. Right now it may be hard to see that God is control. With the hostile attitude towards Christians these days it can seem like God is … Continue reading God is in Control?
Fellow Christians, let me first just say, if you are not one who usually takes the time to read by blog (and for those reading on Facebook and just scrolling through), please, please make the time today. There is a lot here today and I think we all need to hear it…and guess what…..I am not the one saying or writing it. This Reblog Friday … Continue reading Reblog Friday: The Power of No & 5 Trends Christians Must Stop Doing
I was just thinking this morning that it has been a year since I took a leap of faith and quit my job. When I look back, I can’t believe I ever doubted God as this year has been such a blessing to me. I was able to spend a lot of time with my girls who have since graduated, went on many college tours, … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: I Know My Sheep and My Sheep Know Me
While the attitude and nation seems to be turning on Christians, it is easy to get discouraged. But God keeps reminding me this is the time for Him to do great works and show His power as God. It is in the hopeless situations that God shines best. Be faithful; keep praying; Sunday’s coming. Let us go back again to the book of Daniel. Today, … Continue reading The Fiery Furnace
Yes, I know it may seem silly to some, but today we will continue on with the story of Daniel….children’s style. Hey, don’t knock it until you tried it; for many it will give a clear understanding to a complicated story. After reading it this way….I do encourage you to go back to your Bible and see the actual story for yourselves. The story of … Continue reading Daniel Interprets a Dream
Last week we talked about how the attitude towards Christians in America is changing. While we have yet to face true persecution in this country, our religious freedoms/rights are beginning to be trampled on. No matter which side of the line you fall regarding Kim Davis, the time is coming where all Christians will have to take a stand. Luke -warm Christianity, straddling the fence, … Continue reading Daniel’s Story…..Through the Eyes of a Child
