Let the Adventures Begin

As I left my house this morning, before the sun came up my thought was “Let the adventures begin.” My husband was taking me to the airport. I was heading to New Orleans to meet a friend as we head to Greece tomorrow. I prayed before we left the house and even as we drove.... Continue Reading →

I Haven’t Made It, So I Have to Press Past The Past

“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:13-14‬ ‭ I remember memorizing the scripture when my...

From Faith to Fear and Then to Abundant Life

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” ‭‭John‬ ‭10:10‬ Today the woman with the issue of blood has been on my mind.

Jealous

You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture says to no purpose, “He jealously desires the Spirit whom He has made to dwell in us”? James 4:4-5 Our desire to be a friend... Continue Reading →

Sifting

““Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat; but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”” Luke‬ ‭22:31-32‬ ‭ I am sitting in the desert with the only sound a random passing car from time to...

God Will Only Multiply What We Give Him

The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught. Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” So they went away by themselves in a...
