Self Or Sacrifice

There is a mist rolling over this nation. Like a fog it’s rising to blind and hinder our ability to go forward. It’s creeping into our homes, our families and our churches. A subtle message aimed at stopping the Gospel in its tracks.

Christian Atheism

Sometimes I come across a topic that grabs me…this Blog post by Craig Groeschel did that and more! It’s a topic I’m passionate about, helping believers live out their Christianity in their lives not just attend a church. So I wanted to share it with you today. Please read and study this Blog and look up the scriptures for yourself, it’s a great reminder for us all.

Lessons In The Delays

Ok…so as I sit at the airport having missed not only my flight but also not being able to get another one today at all, I’m reminded of something we tend to forget. We forget because we are frustrated, angry or pick any number of other emotions you feel when you get delayed.

Shaken And Stirred

I taught on this subject a couple of years ago in a Women’s Conference, using the same example of wind and trees that Lisa Bevere shares in this article. I came across this short Blog of hers and just felt I needed to share it with my audience. It is one of the most powerful principles we can understand as believers. 😊

Was That God Speaking?

I was sitting at the beach today and God began to speak to me…because Jesus loves the beach too!! The ocean is in constant movement, constant surging in and back out. Even on a calm day when the waves are small, it’s never completely still or quiet. As I listened to the roar of the waves crashing to the shore, I thought of God’s voice.

Busy Busy Busy

Busy seems to be the buzzword today. We all seem to be so busy all of the time. We think our effort and busyness will make all of the things we are busy with get done. But have you ever noticed it doesn’t? What the heck? If we are so busy and doing, doing, doing, why are there still eleven hundred things on our to do list?? Help me Jesus…

The Pressure To Conform

I’ve been praying for revelation lately when reading the Word. The Holy Spirits job is to teach us. “But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative-that is, the Holy Spirit-He will teach you everything and remind you of everything I told you”John 14:26.

The Mind: The Real Battlefield

There are many voices in our heads sometimes. Many people do not realize that we do not have to think on just any thought that comes into our minds. Just because we are thinking something does not mean it is our thought. How can we know the difference and what do we do about the thoughts filling our minds?

What Do You See

We think we can only see what is seen with the human eye. But there is so much more that is in us that we often don’t realize much less “see.” How do we learn to look beyond the obvious to the deeper possibilities that lie within us?

Opinion Or Truth

Voices. They are all around us. People try to tell us their opinion, we read articles that present a certain viewpoint, we hear the news filling us with their thoughts, we have our own opinions, and sometimes our minds get bombarded with all of it! But…whose opinion matters the most, who is right and what is the truth??

Forgiveness and Reconciliation

I shared a statement on Facebook the other day and said, “Forgiving doesn’t always mean reconciliation.” I received a lot of comments from people wanting to understand this more, and who thought it would make an amazing Blog topic. We all deal with people…and with people come “situations” icky, hard to deal with, and hurtful situations. Yikes...

Refocus

I’ve been around long enough to know that growth and maturity usually don't happen when I'm living in my comfort zone. Just because I know it doesn’t mean I like it.
