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?)

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?

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?!)

Hidden Pride (My Struggle With Validation)

Validation. It's a struggle I've had since a preteen. When I had little self-esteem in myself feeling validated felt REALLY good. Praise. Admiration. You name it. Pride & Humility Unfortunately feeling validated doesn't give us self-esteem or confidence. We are always going to want more. As I slowly began to gain my self-esteem back and … Continue reading Hidden Pride (My Struggle With Validation)

Slower Schedule Than Usual | Update

I didn't mean to take a break, but when my husband had his spring break I sorta took a break, too. With all that's going on in the world, my schedule is different because my husband is now home.

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)

We Are Like Bread Dough & God Is The Kneader

It's probably helpful to note that I am NOT the best when it comes to making bread dough. In fact, it is STILL a learning process for me. I attempted a few times last year and just gave up because I didn't want to waste more flour and supplies. This year I decided to make … Continue reading We Are Like Bread Dough & God Is The Kneader

Staying Accountable To My “Yes”

One of the messages I listened to recently, I think it was Mike Winger on YouTube, but a point was brought up that we need to let our yes be yes. The things we say we are going to do, we need to be accountable to. Though I know this scripture, this really spoke to … Continue reading Staying Accountable To My “Yes”

What God Taught Me About Paint, Christ, & False Teaching

Christmas has become more meaningful to me recently the past few years as I try to focus more on what Christ did for me through birth, life, death, and resurrection. I enjoy making gifts rather than buying, when possible. It allows me to pray for the person as I work through the project, as well … Continue reading What God Taught Me About Paint, Christ, & False Teaching
