We Are All Slaves (But To What and to Whom?)

So you should also consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Jesus Christ (Romans 6:11).

Something I Was Given: Philippians 4:19

“Start living like God is providing, not lacking.”

A Spiritual RSVP

Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator, and become like him (Colossians 3:10).

A Simple Request: ‘Go and Sin No More’

Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?” “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.” John 8:10-11 Did she? Did the adulterous woman ‘sin no more?’ I would imagine from that moment on she saw her […]

Am I Really Ready to be Interrogated?

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalm 139:23-24 Think of those old cop shows where there’s the lead detective, the suspect, a table, a chair, and a dimly lit […]

You Can’t: How to Make Your Spouse…

Pray. Read the Bible. Listen. Communicate. Tithe. Save. Cook. Clean. Show affection. Initiate intimacy. Spend time. Be faithful. Stay. Whew…It would seem that ‘making’ our spouse ‘do’ what we want requires a lot effort, doesn’t it? Not from their perspective, but from ours. It would seem we want to create this super-spouse more than they […]

Am I Any Less Blessed?

How empowered do we feel in the midst of a struggle? Or better yet, how exhausted are we? Job loss. Health crisis. Behind on the mortgage. Pending divorce. Death in the family. Where does our hope rest? Staring at bills in despair? Taking a diagnosis as a death sentence? Deciding on divorce before counseling? Blaming God? I direct […]

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, […]
