The Great I Am

God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”  Exodus 3:14 This week I’ve been reading a lot about going ahead of God.  Thinking I know the right way, the right answer, and moving forward on that path without first seeking God.  IContinue reading “The Great I Am”

Our Elegant World

The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  Genesis 2:9 Some time ago I set about trying to change myself completely.  I told my friendsContinue reading “Our Elegant World”

The Everlasting God

Day and night they never stop saying: “‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.” Revelation 4:8 I don’t know about you but as a “baby Christian” I would go entire days if not weeks without thinking about God.  Without making any decision based on what God wanted ofContinue reading “The Everlasting God”

He Knows My Name

I will not forget you!  See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;  Isaiah 49:15-16 The other day my Bible study girls (or BSGs as I like to call them) were once again talking about praise versus thanksgiving.  I had already been pondering over my praise life when we started talking about how we so oftenContinue reading “He Knows My Name”

Retire From Self Care

“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 “I believe Jesus died to deliver ourselves from ourselves.  How many of us are just fed up being ourselves all the time?” Joyce Meyer The darkness, fury and despair of the young woman sitting next to me grew with each passing minute.  We wereContinue reading “Retire From Self Care”

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”

Praise The Lord

Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people; praise his holy name. Psalm 30:4  A prayer to constantly praise and thank God Mighty God, I admit that when things go wrong in my life I am quick to ask for help.  But when my life is running along smoothly or even when a prayer is answered I’mContinue reading “Praise The Lord”

A Promised Return

The desert and the parched land will be glad;the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the Lord, the splendor of our God. Isaiah 35:1-2Continue reading “A Promised Return”

Amazed By His Will

After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man’s ears. Then he spit and touched the man’s tongue. He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means “Be opened!”). At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly. Jesus commanded themContinue reading “Amazed By His Will”
