Pumpkin Gospel

Pumpkin Gospel

Who else loves pumpkins? I sure do as do my kids. Each fall I used this to teach my children about the Pumpkin Gospel. Have you heard of this? I heard it from  Liz Curtis Higgs Bible truth: We become a new creation through Jesus and can let His light shine in and through our lives. This […]

How Do I Pray in Agreement With God’s Will?

How Do I Pray in Agreement With God’s Will?

One way of guaranteeing your prayers will be answered is to pray in agreement with God’s will! Many times, we have already DECIDED how we want the prayer to be answered. We have already determined OUR will in the matter and try to get God to co-sign our prayers. Or we ASSUME what God wants […]

The Fear Of The Lord

The Fear Of The Lord

I started doing a Bible Study this week on Wisdom. It’s with a big ministry. Somethings have stood out to me, that I’ve not seen or thought about before. Crazy, how God does that, right? We at times may want to think we have wisdom and know more than we do.  Sometimes we do and sometimes we don’t. […]

Thanksgiving In Your Heart

Thanksgiving In Your Heart

This week in the USA on Thursday is Thanksgiving. I love, love this holiday. Family comes together and sometimes we only see them at this time and at Christmas. The smells and the food. There’s nothing like it. Coming around a fire as family members, a lot of times grandmas are cooking up a storm […]

How Might We Recover from Addiction?

How Might We Recover from Addiction?

Recovery from addiction, compulsion, or impossible situations requires diligence, commitment, and boundaries. Praise God for His healing of me when I fell on my face as a powerless compulsive overeater. After years of surrender to Christ and serving him even with what I eat, I’m thankful that He allows me to mentor others with a […]

Christ Is the Answer

Christ Is the Answer

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”———————————————–Acts 4:12 (NKJV) “Christ is the answer” sounds like a cliche or a cop-out; and the phrase might be both; BUT it is also a true and proven statement. There are millions […]

Comfort Food…

Comfort Food…

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.” Psalms 34:8 I just love to eat and most times when I am feeling not so swell, I look forward to going into my refrigerator or cupboards searching for something sweet to devour. My favorite thing to eat […]

The Seven “I AM” Statements of Jesus

The Seven “I AM” Statements of Jesus

I saw a meme on Facebook that caught my attention. The Seven “I AM” statements of Jesus. I never thought about this before. He tells us right there in scripture just who He is. We just have to have a willing heart to listen to him. Praise God for these statements. Let’s take a look […]

Obedience

Obedience

It’s been at least three years since a dear friend loaned me a copy of the Life Application Study Bible. I’ve read the Bible through maybe three times in the course of my life, but never with the sense of adventure that I have read this version. One of my New Year’s resolutions in 2013 […]

Do You Need A Moving Truck For A Change of Heart?

Do You Need A Moving Truck For A Change of Heart?

This past week my family moved to a new community an hour away from previous home. We are so excited about the move, but the whole process of moving was daunting. Boxes upon boxes were stacked in the living room, garage and hallway. Tedious hours of sorting and eliminating the old things we no longer […]

A New Year and A Fresh Start

A New Year and A Fresh Start

A new year and a fresh start. Isn’t that a great feeling? Or do you dread it? I know some years I love it a little more than other times. And this got me to thinking. This thing called a fresh start. Isn’t this just what God gives us after we are saved? You’re shiny […]
