It took me a really long time to see the importance of why we need to read the Old Testament with the Messiah in mind. This was probably because I once viewed the Gospel as a “surface topic.” I thought it was, of course, important... or so I “thought”. But I desired to “go deeper”… Continue reading Christ In The Old Testament (New Series)
Recently, I have been focusing on suffering. How does the Lord use our suffering for His good and glory? Today, in my Bible reading, I came across a pretty salty verse. (ESV) Mark 9:50, “Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again? Have salt in… Continue reading What Does Seasoned Salt Have To Do With Suffering?
For the past few years, I’ve enjoyed writing about salvation around Valentine’s Day. Today, I want to share previous posts that have gone in-depth and I want to share some videos that I have found really helpful in understanding a Christian walk and salvation in Christ. Some of my salvation posts are now privated, you… Continue reading Valentine’s Gift – Salvation Is Found In Christ
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?)
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?
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?!)
Edited: March 2nd, 2021 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… Continue reading Hidden Pride (My Struggle With Validation)
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. I take a while for changes... Within the past two weeks, I didn't have anything published.… Continue reading Slower Schedule Than Usual | Update
(Updated March, 2022- Just a few edits.) 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… Continue reading God’s Will | Jesus Vs. Peter (Our Struggle With Control)
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
