God Knows

Do you ever find yourself up a tree? Are you looking for or waiting for deliverance? I was recently reading the Bible account of Zaccheus in Luke 19:2-10. Remember the wee little man that climbed the tree in order to see Jesus? He was a tax-collector known for his dishonest dealings. When Jesus came through [...]

Hope’s Anchor

Hebrews 6:19-20 "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek." The hope one can have through Jesus is secure and can [...]

Sharing God Realities

Are you sharing about the Lord with others? I hear so many Christians say that they are not good at it or that fear gets in the way when an opportunity presents itself. I probably am one of those who would answer with one of those two excuses. But I just realized something that may [...]

Rekindling: 5 Ways I am Intentionally Drawing Close to the Lord

James 4:8 "Draw close to God and God will draw close to you. Wash you hands you sinners, purify your hearts you hypocrite." Did you come away from the holidays feeling exhausted?

How I Found my Word for 2017

I recently read a blog, there have been many, that discussed choosing a word for 2017. I chose a word, and then within a week, I changed it. Let me share the process. I learned so much through doing it that I think it may benefit others. I started out by taking a look at who I [...]

2017 Scripture Verse

I decided to choose a Scripture verse for 2017. I have not done this in past year. I am looking at it as something to hold tight to when life seems uncertain, for our world is surely filled with much unpredictability. I realized as I reviewed 2016 that I lacked contentment during the course of the [...]

Starting Anew

  Happy New Year! Isaiah 43:18-19 "Forget the former thing, do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing. Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."  Our God is a God of renewal, restoration, and hope. [...]
