We Say Yes

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58 A few years ago, God put my faith listening ears and my trust in Him to the test.  HeContinue reading “We Say Yes”

Slow to Speak

Then the high priest stood up before them and asked Jesus, “Are you not going to answer? What is this testimony that these men are bringing against you?”  But Jesus remained silent and gave no answer.  Mark 14:61 I sat in that meeting surrounded by men.  I was the only woman on the coaching staff and thatContinue reading “Slow to Speak”

Repair My Soul, Oh Lord

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.  Psalm 23:1-3 A couple of ladies in one of my Bible study groups have had workmen at their houses this year.  If you’ve ever had people working on your house you probably have already conjuredContinue reading “Repair My Soul, Oh Lord”

A Gentle Touch

“I have no husband,” she replied. Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. 18 The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.” John 4:17-18 The story of the woman at the well speaking to JesusContinue reading “A Gentle Touch”

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”

A Tap on The Shoulder

I have a good friend who has been a Christian for much of her life.  She’s now in her 60’s.  It’s been fascinating watching her in her faith progression.  For years she sat solidly in the knowledge that Jesus died for her sins.  She knew that God loved her.  She can quote many Bible verses, she taught Sunday school, andContinue reading “A Tap on The Shoulder”

Our Faith Progression

We, therefore, desire to copy his character and put our feet into his footprints. Be it ours to follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. What saith our Lord himself? “Follow me,” and again, “Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find restContinue reading “Our Faith Progression”

Rinse & Repeat

“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the SonContinue reading “Rinse & Repeat”

Listen Up!

Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. John 5:25 Today’s Fresh Fire is our last in this series.  It’s been a great adventure finding and studying verses that have helped me bolster my faith.  IContinue reading “Listen Up!”

Fresh Fire

That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:12 I don’t typically pull Bible verses from the King James version.  But in one of my devotionals this version of Hebrews 6:12 was the focus of that day’s study.  It got me thinking about my own faith andContinue reading “Fresh Fire”
