Lost Your Work?

Lost Your Work?

How many times have you been working on your computer and then lost all your work because the computer freezes or some malfunction occurs? SO frustrating. You restart trying to remember everything you’ve done to that point thinking there is no way you could do it better the second time around. All we can think about is the work we previously did. When you invite Jesus into your heart recognizing that He is the only Savior we need, Jesus froze…

Don’t Wait to be Good Enough…

Don’t Wait to be Good Enough…

Ever invited someone to the gym and they said: “Well, I just want to lose a little weight first.”. Ever invite someone to church and say, “Well, I just got to get myself together first.” Wrong answer. We lose weight by getting TO the gym, we grow closer to Jesus by taking action steps of prayer, attending church, reading the word.  You’ll never be “good enough”, we’re all just working to get better.   Here is some confidence for you that…

“Kill” Them with Kindness

“Kill” Them with Kindness

Romans 12 has a unique standing for me.  Before I deployed, my sister was going to get my name with a yellow ribbon license plate for her truck.

It was about our enemies.  I needed some perspective and Romans 12 delivered.  17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far…

Because they pursued it not by faith but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone.  Are we living our lives as though we can earn…

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Never forget that forgiving some one is for you much more than it is for them. Harboring resentment in your heart is not the way that the Lord wants you to live. It actually steals joy from your life. It compromises your gratitude and thankfulness for any blessings that you’ve been given. It stares in the face of the grace that the Lord has so freely given us. If you have someone in your life that you know you need…

A Look in the Mirror

A Look in the Mirror

We have finished 1 Samuel and have moved on to Isaiah in our ongoing bible study, and I noted something that I wanted to share that is a consistent, almost overwhelming theme throughout the Old Testament – that is, the ebs and flows of God’s people. They fail to keep God in His rightful place over and over and over again. To the point where I can’t help but question them harshly – “What a bunch of idiots, how can…
