Avoiding Responsibility

Avoiding Responsibility We live in a society where many people refuse to accept responsibility for their actions. It’s so commonplace to blame others for things you have caused yourself. We see it in children first, but then in people of all ages because they never learned how not to think like a child. Look at Proverbs 22:15, “Foolishness is bound up in…

His Words Or Mine

His Words Or Mine 1 Peter 4:11 (NKJV) If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies… Public speaking is an interesting thing and one that I never cared to partake of. In fact, even the thought of speaking publicly would make me physically ill. It’s…

Faith Fix: Traditionally Bound

Traditionally Bound Mark 7:9 (NKJV) He said to them, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition.” Tradition isn’t a bad thing. I quite enjoy tradition actually. I love Christmas and our Christmas traditions that have become a yearly staple. Yes, traditions can be very nice, however when they become bondage that’s where their benefits…

What’s Your Reason?

What’s Your Reason? It seems so often that people go about life just sort of spinning wheels, not really going anywhere, but wearing themselves out. It’s almost this purposeless existence and sadly, it’s a human epidemic even found in the church, in Christians. God created us with a purpose! We were made to do good things. Look at Ephesians 2:10, “For we…

God’s Point Of You

God’s Point Of You 1 Samuel 16:7 (NKJV) But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” Maybe the worst thing a Christian can ever say…

And The Two Become One

And The Two Become One For those of you living in Western NY you’ll know we had quite the bout of winter weather to start this week. I found myself awakened by the extreme winds in the wee hours, talking to my husband around 4 a.m. which got me thinking about this husband/wife relationship we have. It’s funny how I can wake…

There’s A Plan For Your Life

There’s A Plan For Your Life Ephesians 2:10 AMP For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship),recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us…

Easy Receiving

Easy Receiving Matthew 11:29 (NKJV) Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Our God is a good God. His greatest desire is us. Imagine then, how frustrating it must be to have your greatest desire always distracted by lesser things. God has a wonderful…

It’s Seasonal

It’s Seasonal The other day when we arrived at our local grocery store, the parking lot was almost full and I was taken a aback for a minute because I haven’t seen it that full in a while. Then it dawned on me that it was Super Bowl Sunday.  Then I remembered that just a handful of months ago the parking lot…
