Imitating the Word

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace […]

Thank God, Think God

I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds (Psalm 9:1).

Silencing My Opinion and Shouting Out His Praise

For the Scriptures say, “’As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will confess and give praise to God.’” (Romans 14:11) Ever wonder about that great day? When every knee is bowed and every tongue is confessing? Just think about it, nothing else will be happening, nothing, […]

Reflecting on the Strength of My Savior

‘And just as any parent would run in and carry their child out of a fiery building, Jesus did that for us.’ My four-year-old son had just walked off the school bus when he asked me to pick him up. He looked like he had a long day of preschool. So I did. We walked, mommy walked. He rested his […]

Comment Spotlight: Vince Chough (BraveFish)

I have to say I enjoy the the responses in the comment section of a post. If you haven’t done it yet, go on and comment somewhere. It’s an exciting way to connect with others and of course, share your thoughts. What I especially enjoy is connecting to those thoughts from others that allow me, as the writer, […]

Changing My Privacy Settings

A Christians life more times than not was not always a life lived in or for Christ. And once we accepted  Christ into our lives we may have still had questionable doubts from our past. Thoughts we thought Jesus himself wouldn’t understand. Thoughts that maybe His blood may have missed or would never cover. Reluctant […]

Do You Mind? Your Praise is Turning Me Off

“The best messages are always repeated. Jesus reaffirms God’s message, and now we reaffirm Jesus’ message.”  Ever wonder if your praise, your very awe of Jesus turns people off? Well, it does. It turns the light off of ourselves and others, and shines the spotlight onto Christ, our Savior and Lord. Jesus took our very nature, to talk about ourselves, and […]

Pray Because…

Pray because…. No one is ever without a need. You’re in mine, I’m in yours. Every trial has a trail to the cross. Right now is as good a time as any. Trust and faith go hand in hand. It’s a victorious ingredient. It’s never a mistake. God listens. He answers. You’re tired. You’re thankful. Just […]

I’d Rather Not Ramble in Christ

I had a blog thought today. A good title, too. But I couldn’t get them both to gel. I wrote some more. I thought some more. But nothing was as clear as I wanted it to be. I even backed away from the blinking vertical bar telling me to keep going, but nothing. ‘What’s going on Lord?’ ‘Was I rushing into your Word?’ […]

What an Unveiling We Have in Jesus

2 Corinthians 3:16 But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. How fitting is it to know that turning to the Lord is a mind altering experience. An experience that changes our own personal truths into falsehoods no longer worthy of our attention and time. Taking those thoughts that once deadened our minds […]
