You Are CHOSEN

“You did not choose Me, but I chose you…” John 15:16a In my last post I stated that I am not rejected, but chosen. That was a pretty big deal since it has taken me almost 42 years to finally begin to understand just how much God loves me. cherishes me. adores me. rejoices over…

I either trust Him…or I don’t.

“I either trust Him…or I don’t.” I have spoken these words, so many times, over the last year. When I was seeking God’s guidance with a chronic health issue and I was feeling led down a not-so-conventional route of healing, I told my husband, “I either trust Him…or I don’t.” When I felt led to…

Abba [Sunday Praise & Worship]

All those led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons.

Surrender

To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul; in You I trust, O my God. Psalm 25:1 We’ve got big dreams. We’ve got plans. We’ve got things to do; places to go; people to see! I get it. There are also bills to pay; family to take care of; so many responsibilities! “I’m Busy!”…
