“LIKE” if there’s nothing spectacular about me… “LIKE” if there’s nothing spectacular about you, too… “LIKE” if the only spectacular thing about you and me is JESUS CHRIST and His Saving Grace. Photo Credit: Robert Couse-Baker

I Come in Peace…or Do I?

We Christians don’t want to offend anybody, yet alone another Christian. Love, don’t judge, right? Matthew 7:1,2,3 “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. 2 For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. 3 “And why […]

‘Blessed’ Status

What’s your ‘blessed’ status? In Genesis 37, Joseph, a teenager, seemed to know his ‘blessed’ status early on. He told his older brothers all about it in two dreams he had “…and your bundles all gathered around and bowed low before mine!” “The sun, moon, and eleven stars bowed low before me!” And from there […]

Created or Creative in Christ

“Most times when we take a break from who we think we are, God shows us who we were created to be.” tchadwick “Then they scoffed, “He’s just a carpenter…,” Mark 6 says.

Opportunity to Pray

Prayer, for me, is an opportunity. It’s not rare, it’s not a once in a lifetime, a never to come again opportunity, but a daily welcoming to run and to fall on my knees in thankfulness to God. Prayer rejuvenates me, knowing that God loves for me to come-a-knocking at His door, that He enjoys our conversations, […]

Flavorless Parenting

Earlier in the week my 11-year-old son came into the house upset, angry, fuming. Along with tears running down his face, I could see the smoke (revenge) coming from the top of his head. And as a mom I instantly wanted to comfort him, even before I knew what was wrong. He sat down on the […]
