Well, I thought I was going to be able to cover fasting and why the disciples didn't fast when they were with Jesus, but you'll have to wait for a few weeks for the second part. (Or read Matthew 9:14-17, Mark 2:18-22, Luke 5:33-39 to learn more) Fasting is "hip" by today's standards. It's healthy,… Continue reading How To Fast Properly (Are We Seeking The Reward Of Men?)

Working On Clarifying Some Misunderstandings From Last Week
This past week I have been spending a lot of time in the Bible. I've been trying to figure out all I need to say about the things I want to clarify in last week's post: What Is Godly/Holy Living | Am I Living A Defiled Life? God has been giving me multiple scriptures to support… Continue reading Working On Clarifying Some Misunderstandings From Last Week
What Is Godly/Holy Living | Am I Living A Defiled Life?
CLARIFICATION (Added 05/17/2020)- Godly living is not the same as legalism (obeying rules to get into Heaven). Those truly in Jesus naturally will experience a transformation from the Holy Spirit. True Christians live a set-apart life as scripture shows because true believers cannot go back to a sinful life. That doesn't mean they are perfect,… Continue reading What Is Godly/Holy Living | Am I Living A Defiled Life?
Covering Bible Studies/Devotionals (Updated)|Christian Blogger
Awhile back, someone told me that my Bible Summaries were dry. I'm assuming it's because I'm mainly covering scripture in the posts and scripture by itself isn't exciting or entertaining. Use less scripture and add a lot of sugar. Make sure it looks pretty and attractive. Christian Blogging 101...right? The truth is I honestly shared… Continue reading Covering Bible Studies/Devotionals (Updated)|Christian Blogger

My Mom Taught Me The Resurrection Using Cookies
Recently, I have been reflecting on something my mom used to do when I was little. The night before Easter she would illustrate Jesus' arrest, flogging, dying on the cross, and His resurrection with cookies. I don't actually have many memories regarding the process of making the cookies. But I do have some glimpses of… Continue reading My Mom Taught Me The Resurrection Using Cookies
God’s Will | What Does The Bible Say?
Edited: March 2nd, 2021 I recently had a question posed by a sister in Christ, "How do we know God's will?" The timing of this is so perfect because today is Good Friday. A time to reflect on and remember Jesus giving His life up for ours. Before He was betrayed Jesus prayed for God… Continue reading God’s Will | What Does The Bible Say?
At First Glance, A “Boring” Speech For Some Readers… But Wait! (Second Coming of Jesus?!)
I know many people struggle reading the Bible because it feels tedious and boring. This is a reflection on our flesh, not on the word of God! It is Jesus, the word of truth, who opens scripture up to us. He ministers. Admittedly, when I first started to work on this chapter, I thought it… Continue reading At First Glance, A “Boring” Speech For Some Readers… But Wait! (Second Coming of Jesus?!)
