Fan The Flame

For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.  2 Timothy 1:6  I remember the day I got baptized.  I was 34 years old and at the same time my one year old and 5 year old received the HolyContinue reading “Fan The Flame”

The Quiet Mind

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.  Exodus 14:14 I am not a “still” person.  If something feels lacking in me, I do a personal inventory and then come up with a plan to fix it.  But I finally realized that my relationship with God needed to be approached differently.  I sat on the edge ofContinue reading “The Quiet Mind”

His Will Be Done

Lesson #11: God is sovereign over all, even unbelievers “The day of the LORD is near for all nations.” Obadiah 1:15 There’s a song one of my previous churches used to sing a lot that goes, “Our God is an awesome God.”  That refrain is sung over and over throughout the song.  I’ve always thought that wordingContinue reading “His Will Be Done”

The Sweetest Name…..

I’m a doer. I consider Martha from Luke 10:41 my Bible spirit. My “Love Language” is definitely acts of service. I’m working on being Martha’s sister Mary — loving Jesus in pure love and adoration. We frequently compare ourselves to others we admire and usually find ourselves wanting. I told a sweet friend of mineContinue reading “The Sweetest Name…..”

God Is My Rock

Day 4 I really admire people who have the gift of poetry. To be able to take everyday life and turn it into a beautiful metaphor. Or, just make clear a concept in a few simple words. I found this beautiful poem about what God is that I thought you might enjoy! He is ourContinue reading “God Is My Rock”
