Can I be honest? I think this has been one of the hardest weeks for me...at least one of the hardest in a long time. I don't think I even realized the heaviness I felt. I was just fighting to get through. It was difficult for me to communicate my thoughts too, yet I somehow felt I needed to talk it out with someone who understood. Someone who knew what I knew. Writing about it just wouldn't do the trick. Encouraging posts, articles and videos didn't work either. I needed som...More
LADIES. Have you ever counted the number of times you've been hurt because a guy you thought was interested in you felt differently, but didn't tell you? YEAH. ME EITHER.It started as a friendship, right? You would hang together when you were both present at events and such, then next thing you know, you're texting each other...EVERY. DAY. Casual conversation, right? That's what you start thinking, but somehow it was "that one thing he said"...
After the last of several relationships that ended up not working out, I found exactly what I wanted in a guy I knew was right for me. I remember my list of "things I want in a guy" went something like, 'He has to genuinely love God, he has to want a family and he can't be a push over, because I need someone who can lead me!' I don't know about you, but I hear several stories about how women don't believe there are guys out there that have a genuine re...More
So, you want to know how to study the Bible? Of course you do! I think God is most glorified when we dedicate our lives to 2 things: knowing Him, and making Him known. If we’re going to dedicate our lives to these two things, it starts with building some kind of relationship with Him, right? What better way to do that than to read? But, where do we start? Are you ready? Let’s talk about How to study the Bible.
If there is one question that has been playing a lot in my head lately, it'd have to be this: "How?" Change is inevitable, and it comes whether we expect it or not. Yet, I'm reminded that this is only the beginning. THE BEGINNING. Yeah, let that sink in some. :) To be completely open and honest with you, it's been very different for me lately. I just graduated from college, and now have "big girl responsibilities". I am truly thankful for how the Lord continues to provide for me daily,...More
I've heard that "only men who have had two parents in the home really know how to be dedicated and committed leaders/husbands/fathers." BIGGEST. LIE. EVER. Here's why I disagree in regards to the believer: 1. This truth stands today: "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Cor. 3:17). You ever heard the lie "You'll be just like your family" or "You'll never make it out of this place"...Who told you that? Certainly ...More
Dear young Christians, I commend you for following Jesus! What a way to begin your life! Many have not had that privilege to know him at such a young age as you do, but God has graciously opened the eyes of your heart to see Him in all His fullness and glory because you have purpose. You have purpose to carry forth what no one else can do as effectively because it's designed just for you. You've been given what it takes to carry this Gospel to the ends of the earth. YES, Y...More
Ever been faced with the "unknown"? It's the dreaded "grey area" that tends to throw us for a loop. For some reason, we find security in knowing what lies ahead and what we have to face on a daily basis. It happens to the best of us, so there's nothing abnormal about feeling this way. I can say I know first hand what the unknown feels like, as many of you can say the same. Here's my story. I work in the I.T. field (Information Technology). That by itself says...More
Ever questioned God? Let me assure you, there's nothing wrong with that. God loves it when we come to the end of ourselves and search for Him. That's when we're consciously (or subconsciously) letting go of ourselves. WHAT NEXT THOUGH? What happens after the questions? What happens when we've finished crying out to God? God ultimately wants our asking to lead to searching. However, we naturally don't desire God. Sometimes, we find our questions leading to these things and mor...More
Habakkuk 3:17-19"Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls - yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer's feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills." Habakkuk the prophet had ...
