All Sin

The Message translation of 1 John 3:4, says that “sin is a major disruption of God’s order.” Sin is anything that is against God. We know that “everyone who sins is breaking God’s law.” God is holy and He cannot look at our sin. He has a beautifully orchestrated plan and He knows the best […]

Made for More

Did you know you were made for more? Jesus said that we would do greater things than even He did during His earthly ministry. It’s true. Sadly, many of us never step into what God has prepared long ago. We allow our fears to dictate our steps. We make up excuses for not stepping out. […]

Oh Everyone Makes Mistakes

Oh everyone makes mistakes. Oh, yes they do; Your sister and your brother and your dad and mother too; Big people, small people, matter of fact, all people! Everyone makes mistakes, so why can’t you? I used to sing that Sesame Street “Everyone Makes Mistakes” song as a child. It was the first song I […]

Sons of Noah

In Genesis 9, the sons of Noah came out of the ship. There were three of them: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Ham had a son named Canaan. Noah planted a vineyard and one day he got drunk from the wine. It wasn’t a sin to drink wine; it was a sin to be drunk. As […]

As I was printing envelopes today, the printer stopped working. It continued to say that there was a jam. I looked inside the printer and I did not see a jam. I closed the door but it still said there was a paper jam. I turned the printer off and on. I continued to pace […]

Getting Your Life Together

I saw a post today online about the infamous invite-a-friend to church day. It got me thinking about the recent invitations I have extended and the invitations that seem to get excuse after excuse. There are some people I have been inviting to church for years. I get a lot of excuses but the one […]

Constant Disobedience

As a parent it can be very frustrating to constantly be repeating the same thing over and over again. There may be a rule that you have for your child’s benefit and you find yourself having to repeat it because it is not followed. It can be very nerve-wracking when you sound like a broken […]

Putting On The Act

I remember when I was a little girl and I would see someone put on an act. Everyone has seen someone put on an act at some point in life, and I believe that everyone has taken their attempt at trying to be a bit deceptive to the human eye as well. We leave ourselves […]
