On the Rise – New Age Beliefs in the Church

I’m sharing something today, that I hope will begin some conversation about where we are as the Church – as the Body of Christ. While this post addresses issues found in the western church – North America, in particular – these beliefs and practices have a global reach.  This is a video by Steven Bancarz…

Recent Changes and Future Plans

I’ve been away from both my blog, and social media, for a few months. It has been a season of change for me and my family, so a break was a necessary thing. I’m writing this as a quick update on what has been going on and to share a little about my plans for…

Poking the “Spiritual” Bear

I have started and stopped this post, what seems like a hundred times. There is so much I want to say, but I want to keep it clear and concise. I want to share what has been so heavy on my heart, but don’t want to go into too much detail, because that would actually…

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;…

Settle It

When it comes to our identity, and trusting in who we are in Christ, there are a lot of opportunities to get distracted. Opposing messages come from the enemy; the world; even our own mind. This is why it is ESSENTIAL to be in the Word – everyday. We need to know what God’s Word…

What’s My Motivation?

Hi Everyone! I’m back. I didn’t post for a couple of days because I was overwhelmed and tired. I was preparing for family coming into town on top of our regular October boost in activity. As much as I had hoped to post everyday in October, I realized the pressure and stress to get a…

Stand Firm

Yesterday, I talked about the temptation of Jesus and how the enemy attacks. Using the same Scripture, I would like to talk a bit about authority. Knowing who we are in Christ helps us to understand the authority we have, so that we can withstand any attack from Satan. Then Jesus was led by the…

Know Your Enemy

Day before yesterday, I talked about the baptism of Jesus and how God, Himself, declared who Jesus was and how He felt about Him. Today, I would like to talk a little bit about how Jesus’s identity was tested immediately after that declaration. Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be…

For God So Loved…

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. John 3:16-17 John 3:16 is probably the most…

In Spirit and In Truth (40 REAL Days)

DAY 37 “But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship Him. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:23-24 ESV (emphasis mine) Some of the…
