Cast it Aside

They were so religious they couldn’t see a move of God right before their faces. Modern day Pharasees and Sadducees. They have a head knowledge but their hearts are empty.

Power in Obedience

I treasure my time with Jesus, some may think it’s silly or weird to pray.

My world…

Pastor’s Wife

Hi, I’m a Pastor’s wife and I sometimes struggle introducing myself to new people because I’m shy. There have been times when people mistake my shyness as being “stuck up” when they really don’t know me at all. Sometimes I’m afraid I will wear the “wrong” outfit, and someone will say something demeaning even though…

Push back in the name of Jesus

Dear precious Child of God, Do you really think the devil is going to let you off easy? Do you really think those over obsessive, anxious filled, depression ridden thoughts are just going to stop?

Take Comfort In Jesus

Singing this morning, “Jesus…  Jesus… Jesus, there’s just something about that name, Master, Savior, Jesus, like the fragrance after the rain…” He took all my sorrows, all my pain, all my anxiety, all my sadness, all my sin and unlocked a secret door in my heart and walked right in. He can do that for…

The Scarlet Cord

A couple weeks ago my wonderful husband asked if I had a red ribbon lying around. We were talking about Exodus 12 and the story of Rahab the harlot. In looking closer at the story he came up with a very creative idea. I thought I would share this with you precious people. This is…

Revelation of Love

I was approached recently by someone to share one of the major and most recent testimonies in my life. This has only been shared by word of mouth to very few people. It was a powerful and unforgettable encounter and I have a burning desire to share it with others now. It has been about…

We Need More Patience

In this flip-switch, microwave world we live in, patience is sometimes hard to find. Even as Christ-followers, we can become impatient even in ministry and life. It’s almost like our world has caused us to become used to being in a hurry. Think about it for a second… Twelve hour shifts Microwave meals or fast…

Waging War on Technology

Go Where You are Celebrated

When you are rejected, never forget to rise higher. It is okay to walk away when you aren’t appreciated in a certain place. This goes for everyone really, in a lot of circumstances. It’s not okay to wallow, suffer, complain non-stop like no one cares about you. But, it is okay to say your peace,…
