Look for it

Expectations are a curious thing to me. I’ve learned a lot about expectations and the source of growth has been rooted in my relationship with my husband. Generally people are self absorbed and self centered. We relate best to ourselves because that is who we know best. Now when we pursue God and his excellence … More Look for it

Joy

Joy unspeakable and full of glory! The joy of the Lord is our strength! Count it all joy when trials come! All these facets of joy in the Word would indicate that there is really something to joy. Such a small word with such grand implications. In my post Strength, I covered the strength aspect … More Joy

Courage

“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us…if it is to encourage, then give encouragement…” ‭Romans‬ ‭12:6, 8 This passage of scripture highlights the functions within the body of Christ and emplors each of us to steward those gifts with all fervor and vigor. In seeking to find who I … More Courage

Jesus

Do you not see? Have you not heard? I am the one who takes away the sins of the world. – Jesus Maybe you have “asked Jesus into your heart”, but don’t know much else about what it is to be saved. So, I want to answer the question of what it means to have … More Jesus

Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit. When we talk about the Holy Spirit, it seems to cause friction in some sectors of the church. I don’t know why, but I can guess that one reason may be, he isn’t known. That’s right, it’s not a question of what it is but who HE is. The Holy Spirit is the … More Holy Spirit

Confident

I started writing this blog not really knowing what the premise was going to be. Actually I delayed writing this week’s post because I didn’t have a clear direction on it. I knew I wanted to write on faith. I’ve wanted to write on faith for awhile it didn’t feel quite equipped. Well if you … More Confident

Motivation

God looks at the motives of our heart. Did you know that? He doesn’t judge us on our actions, he doesn’t judge us on our accomplishments, he doesn’t even judge us on our words. “But the LORD said…The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but … More Motivation

Strength

“You have such a beautiful smile.” I literally can’t count how many times I’ve received that complement from strangers and friends alike. My staple response used to be, “well my parents paid a lot of money for it.” Which is true. I had braces in elementary school and still have a permanent retainer to keep … More Strength

Time

Divine appointments. Ever had any? I can most assuredly answer for you with an emphatic YES! We go places and God sets up the right people to meet us and provide exactly what we’ve been asking for. We have undoubtedly gone another way, one out of the norm and missed a catastrophic event either knowingly … More Time

Purpose

Why are we on this earth? What is the purpose of humanity? Where did we come from? The world cries out for a purpose. The world cries out for knowledge of their origin. When we the people who know, don’t answer their cries they turn back to the world. It is our job and our … More Purpose
