Scattered & Faint

Scattered & Faint “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.” Matthew 9:36 (NKJV) The devil always attacks the plan of God. As we see so often in scripture, he always gets to God’s people by deceiving them. The thing about deception is that unless you…

The Choices We Make

The Choices We Make “So they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.’” (Acts 16:31) In a society where the popular mantra is, “do you,” often times the effects of that are forgotten. Sin is easy; it always was. It’s easier to give in to the flesh, and just do whatever it is…

Quick & Painless

Quick & Painless We are blessed to live in a place with four beautifully distinct seasons of weather, which makes it easier to understand why the Lord used the illustration of seasons so often in His Word. Look at this familiar passage of scripture, Ecclesiastes 3:1, “To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven.” Though there are…

Doers, Not Observers

The trophy is reserved for those who compete and win, not those who watch. I don’t ever want to do anything and not get the most I can…

Take a Closer Look

Take a Closer Look Recently my husband and I took a couple of our friends to an art museum for the first time. Art is something that is very near and dear to my heart, as I’ve been an artist my whole life and an art teacher for over 11 years. For me, when I walk through an art gallery I see…

The Key To Peace

The Key To Peace I had a friend that, while in a very busy and difficult season of life, lost his car keys. Modern keys, as you may know, are not simple or inexpensive to replace. Normally this would have been just an inconvenience but heaped upon a never ending list of things that needed done that day, the pot was boiling…

Faith Fix: Bad Doctrine

Bad Doctrine John 8:32 (NKJV) says, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Listen to this, “You cannot know what I’m saying is true unless you know what the truth is. You cannot know what the truth is unless there is a truth to be known,” (Unknown). There is a lot of argument within the body…

Jesus Wasn’t a Loner

Jesus Wasn’t A Loner Jesus wasn’t a loner. And God didn’t make mankind to be loners either. When God made Adam and placed him in the Garden of Eden, the Bible says He came and spoke with him. God made man to communicate. God gave us a voice and a personality for a reason. We’re humans. We’re carefully created, beautifully crafted in…
