An Old Foe Appears (Christian Poem)

Shame, shame. Wrapped around and calling my name. Echoes whispering Accusing saying I'm undeserving.   And old foe appears. One I haven't seen in many years. He grins, while a sword glints in his hands.   I was growing, sowing. Now, the accuser destroying. Ripping apart, what was my heart. Roots broken and seeds marked. … Continue reading An Old Foe Appears (Christian Poem)

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

Working On Clarifying Some Misunderstandings From Last Week

This past week I have been spending a lot of time in the Bible. I've been trying to figure out all I need to say about the things I want to clarify in last week's post: What Is Godly/Holy Living | Am I Living A Defiled Life? God has been giving me multiple scriptures to support … Continue reading Working On Clarifying Some Misunderstandings From Last Week

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?

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)

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

Being Seduced To Death

The consequence of adultery is death. This Bible summary is a little longer than what I prefer, but that's because the takeaway message is so important. We will know others by their fruit. Who are we following?  Today's Reading: Chapter 7 of Proverbs Continuing Warning Of Adultery  Verse 01-05 continuing the remainder of the last section … Continue reading Being Seduced To Death

Behind False Confidence: Bondage of Makeup & Fashion

Let's start this by saying wearing makeup isn't an issue. Clothes are not the issue. It's looking beneath the surface of these topics and everything we see on the outside. God looks at the heart, and today, I want us to really look at our heart, our soul, the temple of where Jesus should be. … Continue reading Behind False Confidence: Bondage of Makeup & Fashion

Resisting The Devil (Not For The Weak)

Halloween of all days this post goes up.  THIS IS NOT A FLUFFY CLOUD POST! If you honestly want to resist the devil, please take these things to the Lord. Truthfully, after writing it, I'm a bit rattled, too.  Last week, I talked about how we need to know if we have truly repented from … Continue reading Resisting The Devil (Not For The Weak)
