Ultimate Makeover

The question we all ask ourselves, huh. Who am I? For many, the answer to this question changes depending on the season.  Sadly too many base the answer on emotions, experiences, or what others have said about us; as if someones opinions define us. Times and seasons change. Society is a fickle people. With the […]

Safe in the Storm

I cling to the cross when the storms roll in and the dark clouds try to distort my vision. The work Christ did and completed on the cross is my anchor. When the waves tempt me to row in the opposite direction, Jesus calls me to the stern and He tells me to rest. I […]

Beauty for Ashes

Shame does something to a person. It produces a judgement of guilt and unrelenting condemnation. Shame distorts a person. It suffocates the future and feeds on regret. The showering of fear hinders growth and stifles a person from becoming who they were created to be. When I think of people in the Bible who overcame […]

Hope for Healing

I didn’t know my Father as a child. He knew me long before I was born, but I didn’t meet Him personally until I became an adult. The father I knew as a child was a hurt, abusive, and angry man. I spent my early years being the recipient of his hostilities.  Since a seed […]

Her life didn’t turn out the way she planned. Everything was a struggle, from childhood to adult, it was a constant struggle; as if she was under a curse. All her life all she ever wanted was to be loved. As a child she would envy other children who had parents who loved them. She […]

Fear is a Poor Bedfellow

Fear will kill dreams, destroy relationships, paralyze, cause illness, put you in the poor house,  bring depression and even cause physical death. Fear is hellish! Fear comes from Satan. Throughout your life he planted those little seeds of death. He manipulated people to hurt, offend, or misunderstand you. He magnified every failure. He whispers accusations […]

Your Will or His Will

God came down to us as a man, tempted in every way we are tempted, experienced every emotion we experience, and yet He was without sin. He sent His only Son, Jesus, to restore us back to Him. Jesus, fully man, fully God; Emmanuel, God with us. Think about that. Let that sink in, please. […]

Real Love, His Love

There is comfort in love; safety and freedom. What freedom and security to be completely vulnerable and naked, knowing you are loved and cared for, no matter the flaws, because your Beloved loves you unconditionally. Such love is willing to lay His life down for you, defend you, hold you, care for the things you […]

Spiritual Litmus Test

  If you want to know where someone is spiritually with their walk with God, you do not have to look at the church pews, you only need to listen and watch. There is a saying, “an apple does not fall far from the tree.” Jesus said it this way, “For there is no good […]
