Master Gardener

I admit, I have never been accused of having a green thumb. When I bring a plant home, it is almost as if I can hear Taps being played in the background. I have either drowned them with too much watering or they have dried up because of my neglect. Poor things. I have learned […]

What Are You Searching For?

We look high and low for something to numb us or someone to fulfill us. Addictions come in many forms. Drugs, alcohol, relationships, impulse shopping, social media, etc… Because there is that something in each of us that is reserved for Him. He planted it in us. Because He desires an intimate relationship with each […]

Are You in the FIRE?

So, I was talking to a friend yesterday, she said her husband said he didn’t even know if there was a heaven anymore. Of course she was concerned. She is a believer and so is he. Even the great giants in the Bible wrestled with their faith. It is the cry of our heart when […]

Power of the Testimony pt. 1

Free to Fly

As I sit here and listen to Jason Upton sing about freedom, I mediate on the truth of what he is singing. (Click here) Ah, yes, freedom! Isn’t that we all long for? True freedom to be who we were created to be in the security of safety and comfort of knowing we will not […]

Deadly Eye Candy

How do we keep ourselves pure in a fallen world? You can hardly watch a movie or t.v. show without being assaulted with vulgarity. It is almost impossible to even look at Facebook without being bombarded with arrows to our spirit. Hollywood serves up a smorgasbord  of nudity, profanity, and violence buffet style. Just because […]

The Difference Between Pigs & Sheep

Do you know the difference between pigs and sheep? Pigs like mud. They will wallow in it. They find comfort in mud. It’s their nature. Sheep do not belong in mud. It is not their nature.  “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the […]

Love AND Abide

  The last post I talked about the battle we are in. Sometimes it feels like a constant battle and we wonder if we are ever going to enter our rest. You know, the place where peace resides. I think it worthy to note: peace does not mean the absence of storms, rather it is […]
