They Can’t Come In Unless They’re Invited

They Can’t Come In Unless They’re Invited

In recent months my niece informed me that she didn't think she had ever seen the 1992 movie Buffy The Vampire Slayer. If you've never seen it, just know it is a very cheesy and corny 90's movie. Towards the end of the movie there is a dance for the senior class in...

Grace or Guilt

Grace or Guilt

1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Romans 6:1-3 Have...

Love Today & Tomorrow

Love Today & Tomorrow

I should be home or at the very least traveling there. Unless you've been under a rock you've seen the weather and you know that it's gross in most of the US right now. That means traveling is discouraged. The area I live in is pretty much covered in a sheet of ice...

I’m Too Much

I’m Too Much

I'm too much! There are days I'm more than I can handle so I know that no one else can. Some can only handle me in small doses, stretched out few and far between. Then there are a few brave ones can handle me at full strength. I get it, I'm more than some people can...

Are You Washed in the Blood?

Are You Washed in the Blood?

This past Sunday during service we sang the song Are You Washed in the Blood. Towards the end of the song the song leader asked us to look at ourselves. Am I washed in the blood? In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb? Are my garments spotless, are they white as...

Thanks Not Fear

Thanks Not Fear

As christians we preach about thanking God in all situations, but this year many of us have failed to do that. This year I've heard very little praise or thanks for what we have. Instead I've heard lots of complaining about 2020 and wanting it to be over. Even as I...

God’s Timetable Not Mine

God’s Timetable Not Mine

A few weeks ago my brother's family left my house at the same time as I did with both vehicles headed to the same destination. He pulled out before me so I was right behind him most of the way. We were about halfway there and now with a bit of distance between us I...

A Different Kind of Easter

A Different Kind of Easter

Often times in elementary school we would be told to bring an item from home. Mine was typically homemade because going out to buy things wasn't happening. I remember one year we were told to bring an Easter basket. My mother is one of those crazy creative people that...

Sparks Fly with Christ

Sparks Fly with Christ

There is a song that says 'sparks fly, it's like electricity, I might die. When I forget how to breathe, you get closer and there's nowhere in this world I'd rather be.' Obviously, I'm not a guy so I can't speak for them, but as a female I can tell you that most of us...

Biblical Relationships

Biblical Relationships

Have you ever looked in Genesis chapter 1 and noticed that God, more than once, calls His creation good? It makes me think that His definition of good and the way I use the word are more than a bit different. Before the fall of man there was perfection so when God...

Does Prayer Change Anything?

Does Prayer Change Anything?

Why bother to pray and trust God if He isn't going to change anything? It's a question I was recently asked and one that sadly I believe many people ask when they are struggling in a situation. If the only reason we pray is to get our wants and desires then isn't our...

Choose Happy

Choose Happy

I recall when I was a child my parents would often tell me that my siblings didn't make me mad, I chose to be mad. All that did was make me even madder. How dare they tell me such utter nonsense!  They must have forgotten that I was the baby of the family and should...

I Can Do All Things

I Can Do All Things

Not too long ago you couldn't go anywhere without seeing or hearing Jeremiah 29:11. It seems the verse has changed and now we are all on a Philippians 4:13 kick. I'm not complaining, I just wish people would use it correctly. I can do all things through Christ which...

What You Date Is What You Marry

What You Date Is What You Marry

While having dinner with some girls from church we were discussing a trend that for the life of me I don't understand. One of the young ladies said she has been in this situation herself and at the time she saw nothing wrong with it. She was speaking of a past...

Feelings are Fleeting

Feelings are Fleeting

My great nephew has been with me this summer and we've had a blast! This week we took a few days and rented an airbnb. When going there I went a way I wouldn't normally go, but the gps said it was the fastest so we took it. On the way home I decided I'd come the same...

Try or Strive

Try or Strive

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. Matthew 13:45-46. Can you image selling everything you have for one pearl? This seems pretty...

A Mother’s Heart

A Mother’s Heart

I sat at church today and did the same thing I've done numerous times throughout my life; I watched mothers of all ages go to the front of the building to be recognized for Mother's Day. They're given flowers, plaques, keychains, pictures, cups or some other token of...

Rest

Rest

Lately, the idea of rest has been popping up everywhere. Maybe it's just because it's been on my mind so I'm noticing it more than normal. Either way, it's a popular topic around my house. You all know I'm headed back to Genesis before going anywhere else so have you...

What Jesus Are You Preaching?

What Jesus Are You Preaching?

Walls, abortions, and tacos seem to be in my newsfeed on a daily lately regardless of the social media platform. In all honesty, tacos probably won't be going anywhere soon and I'm ok with that! The other two will be changed to new hot topics soon enough. I typically...

Unseen Productivity

Unseen Productivity

I feel like it's been 5 years since I've posted. It obviously hasn't been that long, but it certainly has been a while. As much as I enjoy writing on here sometime this takes a back burner to life. I've been very productive lately, but I don't have a lot to show for...
