I have been praying to the Lord and asking Him what He would like me to write about. This morning I awoke to the Word "Call for circumcision". Okay, so most people would hear this and think "What...that is a Jewish thing!" Yes, circumcision IS a Jewish thing, but I think I understand where the … Continue reading Call for circumcision
My first thought, when writing this post is "Oh Lord Jesus, I don't know how to write this one"...But He tells me..."Write, Holy Spirit will lead you". So here we are. In this conversation, we will also talk about 3 "Churchy" words that all relate to one another and yet are different...Salvation, Justification, and Sanctification. … Continue reading Salvation, Justification, Sanctification
On this beautiful and yet cold December 4th morning, as I sit and peruse the morning news, I am reminded of a story in the Bible, a story about King David of Jerusalem. In this story, Saul was still king; however, he was going to be removed because of his sin and defiance against God's … Continue reading When God is for you, who can stand against you

When we think of Wisdom, we think of knowledge, understanding, education...but really, wisdom is different than knowledge.

Things on the side of the road can grab your attention away from where you are headed. Even your thoughts … Continue reading Staying Alert
This thing called control... we all like to think we have it. It's really honestly nothing but an illusion. There's only one being in the universe that truly controls anything, and that is our Father in Heaven. Still, we are people, and we are goofy enough to convince ourselves that we are controlling every aspect … Continue reading “Control”
A dear sister in Christ asked for prayer today because she felt "lost, hopeless, and abandoned." She went on to explain that she has been totally in love with Jesus, spending a lot of time in prayer, praise and worship, but her OCD (obsessive/compulsive disorder) "kicked in" and her intrusive thoughts went from questioning herself … Continue reading Do you feel abandoned by God?
Unless you've been living on a deserted island somewhere with no access to the outside world, you have probably recognized how "hot" this topic is for ALL people, the topic of sexuality.

Walking through this life, we see people in crowded stores, we read people's facebook messages, we encounter people in cars, trains, planes, planes, everywhere. This world is a crowded world. But what do we see? Do we see people we envy? "Boy, that girl seems to have it all together"...."Why can't I be like that … Continue reading Who do we trust in the storm?
