“Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and enter His courts with praise!  Give thanks to Him; bless His name” Psalm100:4

I saw a question that said, “what would happen if you woke up one morning only having what you thanked Him for the day before?”  Interesting thought.  I was dumbfounded when I realized that I had only thanked Him for our dinner yesterday.  It definitely wasn’t a good enough meal that I would want only it the rest of my life.

“For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough”     2 Corinthians 11:4.

I have been holding off because I thought this issue would just go away.  I thought people would have some more sense than this but clearly I have been giving society too much credit.  I am floored that there is yet another insignificant thing being treated like the be all end all to Christ:  A RED CUP!  Are you kidding me?

No More….Please!

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you” I Peter 5:6-7.

Over the years I have heard many myths about what the Bible says.  The one that is my biggest pet peeve is, “God won’t give me more than I can handle.”  WRONG!  Continue Reading »

“But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you'” Jeremiah 7:23.

Now I am a bit too young to know exactly what occurred during the ’70’s but something powerful occurred that has recently caught my attention.  I had vaguely heard of this movement when I was younger but due to the religion I was raised in I was told that the “movement” was of Satan.

“You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail” Proverbs 19:21.

We are told from a very young age to make plans.  As early as elementary school we are told to make a plan of how to write an essay or plan what additional stuff you want to do for an after school activity.  The older we get the more plans we make.  What club or sport to join in high school?  What college to go to and how to pay for it?  Where to live?  What career path to take?  When to get married?  When to have kids?  But where is God in all this planning?

“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God” ~Colossians 3:1.

What is holding you back? The Lord wants us to grow closer to Him. Just because you were saved does not mean that is as close as He ever wants you to get. The angels are rejoicing when you praise His name but is that all the closer you are to become? Every person has the ability to learn more about Him because in our lifetime we will never learn everything. So, what is holding you back?

“The Lord is my light and my salvation. Should I fear anyone? The Lord is a fortress protecting my life. Should I be frightened of anything?” Psalm 27:1

Why do people fear so much? I know it is a humanistic behavior but not one encouraged by God. The Bible actually has 365 verses that tell us not to worry/fear of anything. Kind of ironic that there are 365 days in a year and He chose to remind us not worry or fear that many times as well. He chose to cover every day of the year with an encouragement of His presence. 

I used to be a person who feared everything. I was afraid to be alone in my home, afraid to walk to my car in the dark, and afraid to go to places known for violence. Why? Was my fear going to save me from being harmed? No. Was my fear or worry going to prevent someone from making a choice that may alter both of our lives? No. So, what is the point?
