A Plan for Us

The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18 I’ll be honest, I never thought I’d get married.  Partially because I just wasn’t raised thinking about marriage and partially because I was the product of a marriage based on very little respect forContinue reading “A Plan for Us”

Contend for the Faith

Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richlyContinue reading “Contend for the Faith”

Resolute In Christ

As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. Luke 9:51 Hi Friends!  It’s been a while since my last post – which ended the 30 More Days of Praise series.  I’ve been praying for some time for direction about my next series.  And I finally received a pushContinue reading “Resolute In Christ”

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”

He Serves Humbly

“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” He replied.  “Now get up and go into the city and you will be told what to do.”  Acts 9:5-6 I did not grow up in a strong, male-led home.  My father was a sweet man who worked a lot.  When he got home from work we ate dinner, he showered, andContinue reading “He Serves Humbly”

She Loves Like Jesus

“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13 Jesus sees you. The first lesson of this miracle is a welcome one. You and I aren’t invisible. We aren’t overlooked. Jesus spots us on the side of the road, and he makes the first move. Max LucadoContinue reading “She Loves Like Jesus”

Jesus Mindset

“But we have the mind of Christ” 1 Corinthians 2:16 We so often hear the phrase, “To be like Jesus” but what does it really mean in our everyday lives?  My BSGs were in a deep conversation on Revelation about whether or not we believe in the rapture.  And, more importantly how does either position effect ourContinue reading “Jesus Mindset”
