How To Transition into 2016? Without Fear, and With Christ!

Transition can be difficult especially for those of us that have difficulty finalizing plans and committing  to the very steps ,one must take, to actually get to the promise land. It is no wonder to me that the 12 spies, which Moses dispersed to observe all the Lord had promised,  came back holding the grapes, but only two wanted to…

What If Mary Didn’t Believe That Motherhood Was a Ministry?

Mary, the little girl that said, ” I am the Lord’s servant. Let it be to me according to your word.” I can’t imagine as a young teenager the courage it took for Mary to produce these words, and  when you leap frog through time , these words, still have the ability to move any believer’s heart. What trust…

Are You Wanting to Leave God’s Legacy Behind… Or Yours?

I often marveled at how long it took for our heavenly Father to get me to the point of  being able to use me to spread the gospel. What a road trip that was. I spent at least 25 years living for myself which is AKA for fumbling around in the dark with only shadows of who I could be…

Save Me! What Do You Do When the Bible Is Like A Riddle?

I am sure many of you when you decided to devote yourself to the study of the word of God  couldn’t help but notice the many figures of speech that gloss the pages of your translated bible of choice.

What is the Godly Family?

The holiday season always makes me think about family, and with Christmas approaching, and the end of the year always bringing promise of new hopes, dreams, and resolutions I could not help but think of some things. What if you didn’t have a traditional family?and second, being a follower of Jesus Christ, what is the ,ideal, Godly family?…

Defending God’s Character

It is a shame how God gets introduced into people’s lives for I have discovered that it is this very first impression, of others point of view, that always seems to need correcting or adjusting down the road . In a world that is all about first impressions it is no wonder that the masses of people, worldwide, have…

Feeling Like a Misfit? You are not alone…

Christmas is such a festive time of year, and with all the hustle and bustle of gift shopping I simply wanted to sit back and be entertained so, I thought how could I let the season pass without tuning into my favorite holiday classic Rudolph the red nosed reindeer. It had been a while since I’d seen this red…

Is there really nothing new under the sun?

As I was visiting this amazing place, Emeralds Bay, I could not help but think of the infamous line in the book of Ecclesiastes when the writer , Solomon, son of King David,  utters the words that there is nothing new under the sun. What a statement to make,  and furthermore how does one get to a place , a perspective in his or…

Who is the King of Your Life?

We all have different ways we deal with life’s up’s and down’s; the tragedies that seem to come into our lives like a tsunami unexpectedly. I can recall some of my own pitfalls, and plunders that have brought me to my knees in agony, and as I sit and write this, the pain, at times,…

The Tri-Fold of the Authority, Submission…Position

Oh my… the dreaded authority and submission -position. No matter who you are, and who’s you are at some point in our lives, we will all be forced to endure having to submit to the authority placed over us. I know, I know, I cringe too when I see or hear the word submit it just has the power to not make…
