Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.   Proverbs 3:5-6 Imagination is a faculty of the mind that can be cultivated, developed, extended, and broadened by use. The world has become accustomed […]

Warrior Simplicity

Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious and adding the meaningful. For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.              […]

Our Good God

The sea, the sand, the rocks, the birds, the fish, the waves—God made every detail. Every molecule, every grain, every crevice, feather, and gill—He made the entire scene you’re taking in [when you are at the beach]. And then, He went even further: He gave us His Son, who provided a way for us to […]

Twelve Days of Christmas

The 12 Days of Christmas are not the 12 days before Christmas, as many people think. For most of the Western Church, the 12 days are from December 25 to January 6 (Epiphany, or the day observed as the day the Three Wise Men brought gifts to the infant Jesus). However, some cultures observe December […]

Mary Said Yes!

We have all heard the Christmas story in Luke where the angels come to Mary to tell her she is going to have a son. Not just any son, but THE Son of God. If you remember, Mary questions the angels on how this could happen, since she’s a virgin; and the angels basically tell her, […]

The Real Story

As I prepare for Christmas, one thing that I love doing is going back to Sara’s blog and remember what she wrote…remember her perspective. God’s perspective. I do believe that Sara opened her mind and heart to God so He could teach us through her. I love this post, Sara wrote on “The Real Story.” […]

Finding My Bearings

The kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit . . . Let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another. —Romans 14:17, 19 One day I could hear that inner voice shouting orders at me: […]

Choose Kindness!

The world doesn’t feel very kind these days. As we read social media posts, we see so much anger and dissension rising up. The sad thing is, we say things online that we would never say to a person’s face. We argue about everything under the sun, and it feels at times that people have […]

A Family Stitched Together

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always […]

Thanksgiving with Psalms 97

1The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof. 2Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne. 3A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about. 4His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled. 5The hills […]

Hope for the Hurting

Simplicity

The key to having focus is having clarity. Where there is clarity, there is no choice. Where there is clarity, there is simplicity. Where there is simplicity, there is power. The other major reason we flock to complexity is a challenge of a very different nature. This requires a completely different solution. Society has rooted […]

Revival Starts with Prayer and the Word

Revival. It’s such a big, powerful word. It represents restoration, strength, and awakening. When our faith is revived, it becomes deeper than ever. Revival is the sovereign work of Almighty God. In Isaiah 64, God’s people had been carried into captivity, His work was in disrepair, and His people were dispirited, much like believers today. […]
