YOU are Holy

Did you know that you can be holy? for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:16 I’m guessing that you probably don’t feel all that holy. I know I certainly don’t. I can probably think of half a dozen ways I was unholy just this morning…and it’s only 9:30am! I…

Great Is Your Faithfulness (Sunday Praise & Worship)

Great Is Your Faithfulness In a world filled with faithlessness, God is faithful. Even when we turn our backs on God and insist on doing life our own way, His heart is still so full of love toward us…and He continues to pursue us. Because of His grace, we need only to turn back to…

Love Well

Do you love well? I know that oftentimes I fall short when it comes to loving others – and sometimes, myself – well. To love is not only a command, but it is the greatest commandment. (process point: Don’t skim over scripture because you have read it a thousand times. Read it slowly, actually meditating on…

My Hero

After the day I had, yesterday, I really feel the need to give my husband some well-deserved props.  I’ve been struggling with a lot of health issues for a really long time. It’s gotten pretty bad over the last few months. I won’t harp on the details, but it has been daily pain and darkness and…

Be Content

Sometimes it’s hard to wait on God. We long to have more or be somewhere else in our journey. But we must remember that God has a plan for our lives and that there is purpose in our waiting. Even as we watch others live out their dreams, we must learn to rejoice with them…and…

Be Relentless!

For forty days the Philistine came forward every morning and evening and took his stand… David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands,…

When I Am Weak…

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to relieve me of this. But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. 2 Corinthians 12:8-9…

Appointed Times and Boundaries

“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And He is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything. Rather, He Himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. From one man He…

Applying the Blood of Jesus Christ

“For this is the blood that seals the new covenant. It will be poured out for many for the complete forgiveness of sins.” Matthew 26:28 TPT Today we, as Christians, remember the perfect sacrifice of Jesus – and through His blood, the complete forgiveness of our sins. In the Church, we talk about “pleading the…

Walking in Tandem

*This is something that I wrote seven years ago. I thought it was completely lost due to my last blog site abruptly shutting down, without warning. Thanks to Facebook Memories, I was able to copy what I shared in 2011…and present it, here. What a precious thing the Lord did, this morning, by bringing this…

HOPE Restored

Hope is a dangerous thing to lose. We can face the hardest of circumstances – persevere through seemingly unending trials – as long as we maintain our hope. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;…
