"We are around all types of spiritual opposition.” - Steve Lawson “Our own heart is a battlefield.” - Steve Lawson As a sinner, we didn’t have an issue with our sin before. But when we enter the Kingdom of God, as a Christian, we are in a conflict. We are a new person in Christ,… Continue reading Against Our Own Sin (Steve Lawson)

Contemplative Prayer/Spirituality… Continue reading How To Mediate On God’s Word (The Right Way) & Why It’s Important
Following last week on why I do not pick a word for the year. Today, I share why I do not have a life verse, a concept I was introduced to when I began blogging.
As I shared last week, I no longer pick a word for the year. In addition to halting this practice, I also do not have a life verse.
Similarly to when I found out it was even a thing to pick a word for the year, having a life verse was very new to me when I joined the blogging community.
I just didn’t get it.
And I tried. I already had a lot of scriptures I enjoyed, and it seemed really weird to pick one over the others. Honestly, I do not understand why people feel like they need a life verse. It seems odd to me, and I want to share why.
We need the whole message of the Bible to impact our life. When we decide to focus on pieces and snippets, trouble can happen. Now, again, like I said last week, it’s ok to study…

Salvation is a work in us from God, and it is our job to work out our salvation with… Continue reading Sanctification: Believer’s Transformation Pt. 1 (John MacArthur)

I write about a lot of topics that require an in-depth look. Especially regarding false teachings, I want to help people think critically about what the word of God says compared to what those masked as followers of Christ say compared to what the world says.

Thought it might be fun to begin the year over on UnAshamed with discussing my experiences with picking a word for the year and wby I no longer do.
It wasn’t until a few years ago I even heard that people had a “word” for the year. The basic idea is people take a particular word to meditate on or study throughout the year. I’ve seen Christians do this, so I thought it was ok, and attempted to do the same.
Erm… yeah, it did not really work out well.
Picking a word and studying the word isn’t wrong. Meditation, chewing on what scripture says, and studying are good habits Christians should have. But, do we really need 365 days to be focused on ONE word? How beneficial is it, really?
I can’t really speak from the perspective of others, but here is what I noticed. There were sections of the year I did not really do anything with the chosen word. But that isn’t as bad as the mysticism, which came from trying to apply a word to…
