Holy Week is here!!!! What is Holy Week? Well, Holy week is a week for us to take some time and reflect on Jesus’ last week of Jesus’ earthly ministry. Two years ago, I did a series on Holy Week, and I plan to share an updated version of said series this week. Today, I will post for Day 1 and Day 2. Timeline of … Continue reading Holy Week: Day One: Palm Sunday
I know I am a day late and a dollar short here, but I can’t help but throw my 2 cents in the pot. Christian opposition and discrimination is growing in America (duh). Notice I refrained from the word persecution. I did so because I don’t believe we have hit that mark…yet. There are Christians all over the world loosing their lives, enduring horrendous torture, … Continue reading A Day Late and a Dollar Short
I just love, love, love God’s confirmation.
As you all well know, the matter of service has been on my heart for a few months, or more like a year. Last October, in a morning Bible study, I was overcome by Matthew 25, The Final Judgment, in which it explains how the nations will be separated…those who served…and those who didn’t. I have not been able to shake these verses and all year I have been looking for different ways to serve. Continue reading “Be Blessed and Be a Blessing”
There have been times in my life when I hear God with absolute clarity. Then there are times when I struggle to hear God at all. I used to chuck this up to “seasons” of life. However, the more I study God’s Word, the more I realize that while we go through “seasons”, God’s intention is for us to have Him and hear Him all … Continue reading Pure Hearts
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….
Psalm 51:1-17 (NKJ): Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. 4 Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right … Continue reading Create, Renew, Refill, & Restore
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
Holy Spirit is without a doubt one of the most misunderstood teachings of the Bible. While he is the Third Person of the Holy Trinity, and our power to walk out our Christian life, he is often times a mystery to most believers. As incredulous as that sounds, I am just beginning to see that prayer too is misunderstood and underused. My friend Arika … Continue reading Misunderstood and Underused
I very much dislike yard work. It is not mowing the grass I mind so much, but it is those darn weeds. I hate pulling weeds. No matter how much weed killer I use, or how much of the root I get, there always seems to be another weed just waiting to sprout. So much wasted time pulling weeds. So what happens if we just … Continue reading What Is Your Superpower?
I know it is Reblog Friday, but I have been bad this week and haven’t had much time to visit other sites. So, I will do a modified “reblog” and share an excerpt out of David Platt’s Counter Culture that has been on my mind for a few weeks now as the ISIS issues intensify, the whole Iran debacle takes us further from God’s protection … Continue reading Reblog Friday: Countering Culture
