Discernment | God’s Will for Your Life
Discernment is one of those words you often hear thrown around in Christian circles, but what does discernment really mean? Are we merely using our feelings, our intuitions, to discern something? In the past, I used to think discernment was merely a spiritual gift and not everyone would have discernment. I realize now, through scripture,… Continue reading Discernment | God’s Will for Your Life

Sunshine In The Heart (Charles Spurgeon)

Please feel free to disagree with me 🙂 I bring this up because I've heard both sides and have been engaged in both conversations.

A Plant In The Window | Midweek Inspiration
I'm a plant in the window. I see all kinds of things. From rainstorms to snow to butterfly wings. People pass my window. Aloft inside their head. Faces stuck into phones. Hands clenched in dread.

Are We Too Confident In Ourselves?
We should never pride ourselves on what God has granted to us. Our abilities. Our gifts. Our knowledge.
