I took last week off to get my oldest daughter ready for college and then take her. I didn’t experience any great sadness as I was so excited for her. However, this week, as I am starting to miss her, I think it is finally setting in…our family is forever changed. Now that the school year is underway, I am back to subbing. I so … Continue reading Though You Slay Me….
Romans 8:28 (NKJ): And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. These few words have gotten me through many tough times. Some days, these words are the only thing that kept me going. Why? Because my experience has shown it to be true. However, there are times when I … Continue reading The Choice to Believe
Psalms 37:4 (NLT): Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. I recently got into a discussion with someone on this verse. This person was explaining to me how scripture is not true and applicable to our lives. In other words, God’s word doesn’t work; I’ve tried it, but I didn’t get what I wanted. Well, like most people, this person … Continue reading He Will Give You Your Heart’s Desires…Fact or Fiction?
Yesterday we were talking about the importance of helping the poor, widows, and orphans. I even threw out the harsh statement that if we fail to do these very things, then maybe, just maybe, we are not Christians after all. If you have not read yesterday’s post, I encourage you to do so now. Today, I wanted to tackle the issue that is no doubt running through many … Continue reading Evidence of Salvation
I woke up today to sunshine and warmer temperatures. It is going to be a good day. It is going to be God’s day! Did I mention I woke up to these two this morning: Yes, we have two new additions to the family: Ruthie & Boaz. Not so sure we are ready for this new adventure, but it sure makes my husband and … Continue reading Happiness is Not A Destination
Yesterday, in Guilty As Charged, we began to compare the Jewish crowd at the trial of Jesus Christ with the people of today. But not just the people of today, but rather the church today. It was my claim that while the Jews called for Jesus’ death they did not actually kill Jesus. It was Jesus’ choice to do the will of His father. It … Continue reading Does the Church Still See Jesus as the Son of God?
For those of you who don’t live close to Indiana, there has been great controversy here in the Hoosier state. Facebook has been flooded with comments on both sides of the fight, many without doing any research of their own. Indiana’s governor has recently signed our own “religious freedom” bill. Are we the first state to do this? No, we are like the 3oth! So, … Continue reading Thank God that I Am Not God
Revelation 2:15-16 (NLT): I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! I get it God; lukewarm Christianity is blah! Monday, I wrote on Surviving the Famine, surviving the times in our … Continue reading Give In or Dig In and Trust God
I read a great blog this morning on “wilderness wandering” and it got me thinking about Lysa TerKeurst’s book What Happens When Women Walk in Faith, which got me thinking about the phases of a dream. Yes, my very own version of If You Give a Mouse A Cookie-lol. If you click on the above link, it will take you to my full review , … Continue reading Surviving the Famine
Well, I can honestly say that I am happy to be writing to you all today. There was a time this past weekend where I didn’t think I would get the opportunity to write or speak another word. But God is faithful, God answers prayers, and that is the only reason I am still here today. You see this past weekend I had to take … Continue reading In the Hands of God
