We Cannot Be A “Good” Person

What makes someone corrupt and what makes someone not corrupt? Today's reading shows us just why we need Jesus in our lives, and that by our own merit, we are not good. Several connections to the book of Romans appear today, which I'm excited about, and I hope you enjoy it, too! Before Continuing, Look … Continue reading We Cannot Be A “Good” Person

My Journey With Christ | Christian Poem

When my mind wanders as it had before. When the whispers linger right at my heart's door.   When the floor felt like it would fall beneath me. When my world shattered You were there for me.   You stood by when the witches appeared. You heard my cries when I was torn down inside. … Continue reading My Journey With Christ | Christian Poem

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?)

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

Desperate For Christ (Benefits Of Weakness)

How in the middle of storms can we sleep through the thunder? When everyone is struggling around us how do we have peace? In times of desperation, how do we turn to  Jesus Christ? This is following yesterday's post- Desperate For Toilet Paper (Reckless Love Of God?)  I was inspired to write about desperation after … Continue reading Desperate For Christ (Benefits Of Weakness)

God’s Will | Jesus Vs. Peter (Our Struggle With Control)

It's really easy to judge people in the Bible and think, "Well, I would never do that..." or at least, I'm guilty of that way of thinking. Peter is one who often gets picked on in this manner, but one of the reasons why he is a favorite disciple of many people is because he … Continue reading God’s Will | Jesus Vs. Peter (Our Struggle With Control)

I Didn’t Know Much As A Child When It Came To Jesus | Life Story

I realize that I do not always talk about myself on my blog. I will sprinkle in snippets or pieces of experiences but I do not really go over them. I have many experiences in my life that I can use to point to Jesus, and I want to. I hope by sharing these stories you … Continue reading I Didn’t Know Much As A Child When It Came To Jesus | Life Story

Am I Living With Eyes Focused On Eternity… Struggling With The Flesh

Have you experienced God replaying the same lesson over and over? Everywhere you go, it's there? I've definitely been going through this with a particular scripture. (NLT) 2 Corinthians 4:18, "So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things … Continue reading Am I Living With Eyes Focused On Eternity… Struggling With The Flesh
