My True Freedom

For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17, NLT I have a love and hate relationship with phone storage, especially when it comes to storing pictures. I have tried every automatic back-up service recommended as the greatest, and it never fails-I always end [...]

Fit to Serve Him

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Philippians 1:6 "You have been deemed fit." Those two words-"deemed fit." They had me sitting in my chair, fighting back choking sobs. For you to understand [...]

Love and Marriage…

Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:14 Love and marriage, love and marriage...that's the theme song to one of my husband's sitcom guilty pleasures, and it doesn't have much to do with this post, except that today's verse from Colossians 3:14 is a reminder from Paul [...]

Promises of God: A New Path

The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” Psalm 32:8 I love to read. I love to write. Written words are often easier for me than those spoken, and all through school I looked forward to English classes. Well, until it [...]

Promises of God: A Hopeful Future

"For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 I have a bit of a bone to pick with today's verse. When I hear it spoken at weddings, baby showers, or plastered on graduation [...]

Promises of God: A Family

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. [...]

They Don’t Know You; God Does

I woke up distracted this morning.   I make a vow during my time with God to not use my phone, but I found this morning I spent a large amount of time on it. Good things had happened in the last couple days. A new energy was all around. A new “stepping into.” Prayers [...]

TikTok Truths

 Each day proclaim the good news that he saves.Publish his glorious deeds among the nations.    Tell everyone about the amazing things he does. Psalm 96: 2-3, NLT Last year when I began to embrace the girl God created, the one I knew I always was, but had forgotten for a time, I also began to embrace [...]

It’s OK, God Knows

We were on our way to church. I was in the passenger seat. A rarity on this morning since both my husband and I are moving in different directions and towards church at different times on most Sundays. Behind one of those loud cars. A souped-up version of a car of old I once had. [...]

Not By My Strength, But His

Ever heard of a life verse? It’s a verse from the Bible that speaks to you and usually defines the way in which you walk in your daily life with Christ.  Do you have one? I do. One I even decided to tattoo on my arm as a reminder to live out its truth daily: [...]
