Surrendering to God

Jun 27, 2022

Are you willing to follow Jesus and seek a deeper relationship with God? Are you willing to give up what you want for what God wants for you? Do you realize that what you want is so conditioned by the culture and the world that it has nothing to do with who you were created […]

Blessings and Challenges

Jun 19, 2022

It is not just through the blessings that we know God is in our lives; if that’s all we are interested in from God, then we are only interested in ourselves. Even more important than the blessings are the challenges that we experience throughout our lives and what God is trying to teach us through […]

Still Your Mind

Jun 12, 2022

Psalm 37:7  “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.”   Still your mind and you will find the Lord. Be silent and let Him come to you. For we find God in the stillness and silence within us. Otherwise we are mostly driven by the repetitive and loud thoughts in our minds, […]

A Personal Journey to Love

Jun 06, 2022

When Christ leads us on a journey, we will be amazed at what He can transform in us. I want to share part of my personal journey today. My husband died in 2001 at the age of 60 about 20 years after I had given my life to Christ. I’ve told in other posts how […]

The Kingdom of God

May 30, 2022

  Jesus taught that the kingdom of God is “already among you”(Luke 17:21 NLT), and “within you“(Luke 17:21 KJV). On Pentecost He filled the disciples with the Holy Spirit so that whatever they said could be understood by everyone around them regardless of the language they spoke(Acts 2: 1-12). WE are called to love God […]

The Wilderness Journey

May 23, 2022

  We could look at the trials and sufferings that we endure during our lifetime as wilderness experiences, like the trials and tribulations that the Israelites endured as they were led by God from Egypt to Canaan. In the wilderness we feel lost and alone. It’s unknown territory for us, to be walked and endured. […]

Suffering

May 16, 2022

  In our country, we focus on our personal goals, we do our best to reach them, and we resent any disruptions of our work on those goals, be it a small one, like we’re rushing to meet a deadline and the traffic is slowing us down horribly, or a big one like the death […]

Discernment

May 09, 2022

“I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.” Psalm 119:125   What do we need to do in order to act on God’s will in our lives, to be confident that we are doing what God wants us to do? It’s not enough to know the Bible well, we need […]

Surrender, Part III

May 02, 2022

Surrender is the key tool to develop in ourselves, if we are to follow Jesus at all. If we cling to our agenda for our life, to the culture’s way of doing things, to the ways of the world, even to what we have been taught in our churches, we are denying God any opportunity […]

Surrender, Part II

Apr 25, 2022

Our ability to surrender to what God has put in our lives comes from our trust in God and in His ways, in His love for and forgiveness of all that we are. How much we trust God, in His answers to our prayers, in how He is guiding our lives, in what He allows […]
