Unity

So in keeping with our current theme this week, I wanted to share some thoughts on unity. I was reading the other day in John 17. This passage was Jesus’ prayer for the believers — both the believers of His day AND future believers which is US!!! Did you know Jesus prayed for you? In […]

Surrender

So I’ve been reading through the story of Saul and David in recent weeks. And it was interesting because in the beginning Saul was this great guy and he was humble and feared the Lord. But somewhere along the way he started to see himself as in charge. Because we see by his actions that […]

Citizenship

So continuing with our thoughts on our identity in Christ, the ultimate end of owning that identity is realizing that we are citizens of Heaven! Sometimes we forget that fact! Our citizenship is in Heaven!!! (Philippians 3:20-21). This life is temporary — we are merely shifting shadows (Psalm 144:4). Sometimes we forget that we are […]

Identity

I’m sure we’ve all heard the “you’re special” message like a million times. We know we’re special, right? But how do we get from “knowing” we’re special to acting like it? If we believe we are unique and special and loved by God, why do we allow ourselves to get pushed around by lying thoughts […]

Fear

illustration depicting how fear is always trying to speak to us and the Holy Spirit is our shield.

So last week at church the message was about fear and I thought it would be good to bring up on the blog today. It never fails that just when I get a great idea about a creative endeavor, fear pops up to tell me I can’t do it. It will be too hard or […]

Faithfulness

I don’t think enough can be said of the faithfulness of God. I’m sure I have mentioned it in previous blogs, and I know I say it to just about everyone I meet — I must sound like a broken record! LOL But it’s true! How faithful is God that He made a way for […]

Praise God!

Today I want to talk about the fact that God will be praised whether or not it comes from us! Have you ever thought about that? Have you ever considered that God is God whether or not we humans acknowledge that fact? The Bible says in Psalms 66:1 that all the earth will praise Him. […]

Testimony

So this weekend we had a lovely lady from our church give her testimony at our women’s brunch. It was really powerful to be reminded of just how amazing God really is. When you can hear the story firsthand of what God did in someone’s life, it builds faith! It reminds us that God is […]

Don’t Worry

So this should be an easy one, we all know we shouldn’t worry. We all know we should always trust God no matter what. But when it comes down to it, I’m just as guilty as anyone else. I have a track record of falling back into worry and stress. It’s something that’s been there […]

Back to Life

We’ve been on a series in church called Back to Life, of course leading up to Easter which was yesterday. It got me thinking. Obviously we are talking about Jesus coming back to life, but even the faithfulness of Springtime to bring green grass and budding flowers back to us each year, it’s an opportunity, […]
