Living in the Truth

Jan 21, 2019

We are called by Jesus to live in truth, the truth that Jesus revealed about God and the truth that the Spirit of God reveals about ourselves to each of us: “Whoever lives in the truth comes into the light.”[1] No hiding, no defensiveness, no cloaking ourselves in fine dress to obscure the truth about […]

The Church of Jesus Christ

Jan 14, 2019

The church of Jesus Christ is not a building. It is not a denomination. It is not a sect. It is a fellowship of all his followers in union with Christ, living in the mind of Christ. Whatever differences there might be among us, they are as nothing when compared to being a part of […]

What Revelations Can Teach Us

Jan 07, 2019

During the summer I was led to read the Book of Revelations which I have had little contact with. Immediately, I could see a huge benefit from reading the introductory letters to seven churches. Each church was affirmed for where they were at the time and then challenged for their short-falls.   We can see […]

“I gotta feelin, that everything’s gonna be all right Be all right, be all right, be all right.”   What is being born right now in you? What is stirring in your mind? What new idea, purpose, is there for you to entertain, to allow to grow in you? Imagine that you are pregnant—even guys’ […]

Advent

“Hush, Hush, somebody’s callin my name                                     Oh my lord, oh my lord, what shall I do?”     Do you have any idea about what is coming in your life? How often do our lives take a turn that we never anticipated? And how do we respond to those changes? With acceptance and grace? […]

A Lesson Gratefully Learned

Nov 26, 2018

I learned so many lessons from being married for thirty-seven years to Hank Adams and raising our daughter and twin sons. By far the biggest lesson I learned was to not take anything personally. Early in our marriage, when Hank was mad at me, I took it personally. It was my fault; he was angry […]

It’s all about the gods!

Nov 19, 2018

  I walked on air for three days after I gave my life to Christ, but came crashing down to earth when I heard these words: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me!”  I wrote pages and pages of things that I put before God in my life. I think that my whole journey […]

How can we truly give God power over our lives when we so limit what He can do in our lives by the ways we think of Him and how we are in this world? I’ve been thinking about the limitations of our thinking and how our idea of God is distorted in so many […]
