What To Do When The Bible Isn’t “Speaking” Or “Connecting” To You

Why do I feel distant to God? I try to read my Bible and nothing is “clicking.” Why does the Bible not “speak” to me like others? Why is God so quiet? I should give up. I’m not a good Christian. I used to wonder about these things. I would beat myself up about “not … Continue reading What To Do When The Bible Isn’t “Speaking” Or “Connecting” To You

Godly Love| Meditate On Scripture

Edited 08/12/2020- This is an older series I am bringing up. I have changed the past title. The purpose is to focus on scripture and not take it out of context. Most of this post had been edited.

Shepherd | Meditate On Scripture

This is a series I started a little over 2 years ago, and I realized that the material had scriptures that were confusing and out of context. The way I talked about what we can focus on in some of the posts related a lot to the false teachings of a seeker driven/purpose finding nature … Continue reading Shepherd | Meditate On Scripture

What Are We “Fastening” Ourselves To?

One late morning, as other late mornings before me, I made coffee for my husband and myself. After bringing him his cup, I settled down in the kitchen with my Bible and began to do my daily reading for that day. An hour or so later, my husband enters the kitchen, "My coffee is cold," … Continue reading What Are We “Fastening” Ourselves To?

How To Fast Properly (Are We Seeking The Reward Of Men?)

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?)

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?!)

What Wisdom Is, What It Hates & How It Existed Before Creation

I know some think that by loving like God...that means we can't hate. This is not true! You see, to truly love, we hate what oppresses that love. As verse 13 shares in chapter 8, the fear of God is to hate evil. The Bible constantly shows us there are things in life we are … Continue reading What Wisdom Is, What It Hates & How It Existed Before Creation

Do Things In Secret & The Lord’s Prayer

One of the most well known parts of the Bible we will go over today. The Lord's Prayer. The most amazing Bible teaching Teacher tells us in the manner in which we need to pray and how to pray. But He also shows us how precious private time with God is. Today's Reading: Matthew Ch. … Continue reading Do Things In Secret & The Lord’s Prayer
