What Is The Gift Of Encouragement

Encouragement is a very special spiritual gift. One that often gets hidden. One that people may feel is not "good enough." But we are all told every part of the Body of Christ (the true Church) is important. Every toe is as important as an eye. (NIV) 1 Thessalonians 4:18, "Therefore encourage one another with … Continue reading What Is The Gift Of Encouragement

2,000 Followers?! | The Journey So Far

Thanks be to God in all of this. You know, when I started and had less 12 followers, I didn't know how God would use my writing. I had always known that He called me to reach believers, and I believed writing was something He wanted me to use.

Feeling Weak & Distant From The Lord

David, like Job, cries out to the Lord often. We think of how strong David was in his faith, and I think, we forget he often felt forsaken by the Lord, too. Look at what God did for David, though! The Lord was present, and the Lord can be just as present in our lives, … Continue reading Feeling Weak & Distant From The Lord

Are You Set Free In Jesus But Still In Bondage?

The title seems counterintuitive because it is. If Jesus sets us free from sin and its hold on us, how can we still be in bondage? We do not wake up the next day after deciding to follow Christ and our old ways are "magically" gone. We need to be active on our word. The … Continue reading Are You Set Free In Jesus But Still In Bondage?

(NIV) Ecclesiastes 7:12, "Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it." (10/13/2020)- A few edits have been added.

I Asked For Ducks & God Gave Me A Seagull

I've heard a lot of people joke, I have, too, that God has a sense of humor. It must be true! Last week I wrote about venturing out of my home and deciding to check out a place I haven't before. Post | Wherever I Go, He’s There. Since I had such a lovely time before, … Continue reading I Asked For Ducks & God Gave Me A Seagull

Some of those posts will have a couple … Continue reading Starting A Series On Gifts Of The Holy Spirit

David Seeks Vengence Through Solomon

Solomon has been declared king and David has some parting words for his son. It's interesting to see how David kept his word that he would not kill certain people, but that didn't mean his son wouldn't go after them. Today's Reading: 1 Kings Ch. 2  David knows he is drawing close to death. He … Continue reading David Seeks Vengence Through Solomon
