All Your Might

I do not have words to express the past six months. There are seasons of growth, seasons of service, seasons of suffering, seasons of plenty, seasons of lack, seasons of rest. The list goes on and on. However, this last season has probably been the most confusing and yet eye opening at the same time. […]

The Journey

Life is a journey. Over the years, I learned that a journey isn’t the same during each part of the journey. There are highs and lows, good times and bad times. There are moments of rejoicing, and moments of sorrow and tears. When one sets out on a journey, so often the sojourner thinks the […]

Living with Him

In Psalm 27, David demonstrates why he is known as the man after God’s own heart. The one thing, the ONE THING, that he sought from God above all else is the privilege of living with Him. We don’t read of a grocery list of wants and desires for material things. We don’t read of […]

Handle With Care: Stain Removal

Week 1 – Stain Removal [Genesis 14:22-23] I will not take anything from you so that you can’t say you made Abram rich. CARING FOR GOD’S GLORY   You were made to glorify God – Isaiah 43:7 No one can steal God’s glory – Isaiah 42:8 Satan loves when you try to steal God’s glory […]

Living a Limited Life

When I first moved in the home I currently reside, I remember trying to get all of the utilities installed for the new place. One of the hardest vendors was the trash removal service company. I was asked to haul my trash a far-off distance because the truck couldn’t fit down our road. For years, […]

Suffering is not fun, hence the reason it is called suffering. Suffering is when you are undergoing pain or hardship. It’s surely not fun. But Peter tells us to “be very glad.” Throughout the Bible we read that we should rejoice in our suffering. When we are insulted because of the name of Jesus, we […]

What about Those Ites?

In Numbers 3 and 4, we read about the Gershonites, the Kohathites, Merarites, and others. The chapters contain so many instructions of the responsibilities of each clan. As we read over the passages, it is hard to grasp how this relates to us today. We are not carrying around a tent from place to place. […]

Glory

The Israelites were quick to complain about God when they didn’t have their eyes on food. Just after God brought them out of Egypt, they forgot what He rescued them from, because they were hungry. Where was the food? We would be better off back in Egypt. Even though the Israelites were complaining, God showed […]

Drawing Attention

Paul gives specific instructions for women. This passage is a difficult one for many women to swallow. Many times it is misunderstood. Contemporary readers typically shut their ears to the truth in these words. It is important, whether you are a man or woman, to understand what Paul is referencing in these verses. The reason […]
