Let me ask you something? How many times have you gone to a concert, watched a movie, attended a major sporting event or been anywhere in the presence of a true celebrity and thought, “I sure wish I was famous, that everyone knew me just by seeing my face or hearing my name”? Anyone saying … Continue reading Known
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." 2 Timothy 4:7 Perseverance is steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. Faith is the complete trust or confidence in someone or something. How do the two of these go together? Funny you should ask, … Continue reading I Will Run
We take a Breath Day today. A day to breathe in the most Powerful Promise ever given in His Word. A day to breathe out a Prayerful Praise to our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus. “I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died … Continue reading Easter Breath Day
I am intrigued by the accounts of those who have had spiritual experiences, those moments in which the veil between the physical realm and the spiritual realm is peeled back. Like the stage curtain opens for the audience to see a scene of a play, Father God reminds us that there is more going on … Continue reading Behind the Scene
Don’t we as women absolutely love it when someone praises or complements us on a job well done? Or how about when someone raves at what a beautiful home we’ve made or tells us how proud we should be of the fine children we’ve raised (or are raising)? These things are so nice to hear, … Continue reading To Whom Do You Give the Glory?
I imagine she was the woman other women whispered about. The woman no man wanted except for a secret rendezvous on the bed of a dark room. Known for her inconspicuous service and convenient location, Rahab continually justified meeting the needs of multiple men. After all, she was available and it paid the bills. That’s … Continue reading Need a Lifeline?
By faith the prostitute Rahab, because she welcomed the spies, was not killed with those who were disobedient. Hebrews 13:11 As believers we know when God is involved in the details things do not happen by chance. There are no accidents with God. I remember someone saying to me “There are no coincidences, only God-incidences.” … Continue reading The Power of Faith
James 2:25, 26 The same with Rahab, the Jericho harlot. Wasn’t her action in hiding God’s spies and helping them escape—that seamless unity of believing and doing—what counted with God? The very moment you separate body and spirit, you end up with a corpse. Separate faith and works and you get the same thing: a … Continue reading Rahab. The Harlot.
Then the Lord descended in the pillar of cloud and stood at the entrance of the Tabernacle. “Aaron and Miriam!” he called, and they stepped forward. Numbers 12:5 MSG "Miriam, Come to the office." Have you ever been called to the principal's office at school? You're sitting in 8th grade Algebra class chatting with your friends … Continue reading Nip It! Nip It in the Bud!
One of my very favorite Christmas songs is Mary, Did You Know? Especially when sung by CeeLo Green. It asks Mary, the mother of Jesus, if she is aware that her baby boy would be the savior of the world. And of course she did. The angel Gabriel gave her a heads up. But, the mother … Continue reading Jochabed, Did You Know?
