Freely Receive

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” Romans 8:15

Honor Me By Being Still

“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” Psalm 46:10

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 […]

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)

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 […]

“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.

…nothing to attract us to Him.

Isaiah 53:2 My servant grew up in the Lord’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to Him. My Attraction I first became attracted to You When I was brought into your home I had never seen […]
