    Hearing from God

    I’m going to take a break from my series on sin because God has been speaking to my heart and gave me some things He wants me to talk about on my blog for the week. Today’s topic: Hearing from God. In my quiet time this week I heard the Lord say to my heart that He wants to speak to all His children, but that many of us just aren’t listening. Maybe we don’t take the time to really sit down and have a daily quiet time with Him, or when we do have a quiet time we’re focused on speaking to Him ourselves (prayer) but we don’t just…

    Don’t Let the Sun Go Down

    Six of the sins I listed in the beginning of my series on sin all pretty much go together: murder, strife, malice, anger, rage, and brawling – they are all a progression of one sin. Let me define them all real quick just so we know exactly what we’re discussing. Strife = angry or bitter disagreement over fundamental issues; conflict Malice = the intention or desire to do evil; ill will Anger = a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility Rage = violent, uncontrollable anger Brawling = fight or quarrel in a rough or noisy way Murder = the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another Okay, stay with me here in this…

    The Dangerous Threesome

    There are three very dangerous sins that, in a way, go together: greed, envy, and idolatry. I say that they are dangerous because they lead to many other sins and ultimately pull us away from following the Lord Jesus and living the way He wants us to live. I talked in another post about how godless our society has become or has really always been but now it’s just more out in the open, but this series on sin is not for the non-Christians, it is for those who claim to be born-again followers of Jesus and struggle with sin, just as we all do. We live in a world…

    Love Always Perseveres

    We’re almost done with my series on love and I’m excited to start writing my book again about this subject! I can’t wait to get more in-depth. But, in the meantime, we’re going to continue with this series today on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 with “Love always perseveres.” First, what does it mean to persevere? Well, the dictionary defines it as to “continue in a course of action even in the face of difficulty or with little or no prospect of success.” That sounds like many of our lives, doesn’t it? My first thought when I read that was, “Do we even have a choice? Don’t we have to persevere?” But…

    Love Always Hopes

    Today I am continuing my series on love based off 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. And I want to talk about hope. Hope is a vital part of any life, Christian or non-Christian, because without hope we give up on life. People who commit suicide have lost all hope. But God wants us to live each day filled with hope and if we want to learn to walk in love, we have to learn how to get and keep hope in our lives no matter what trials or storms come. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. (Psalm…

    It’s All About Grace

    If you’re anything like me and grew up in the church, or even if you are new to Christianity but you’ve been going to church recently, you’ve probably heard the word “grace” thrown around a lot. God’s grace, giving grace, having grace, receiving grace…grace grace grace. I think we can hear something over and over without really understanding it. I mean, I hear people talk about our economy but I still don’t really understand how it works because I’ve never studied it. Never wanted to, still won’t. But, I have grown up hearing about grace and I don’t think I truly understand what it is or what it means or…

    Love Rejoices in the Truth

    Today we’re continuing my series on love taken from the scripture 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. What is truth? In society today truth seems to be whatever one wants it to be. If I want to believe something, it’s true to me. But is that really truth? What if my truth says that your truth is wrong? Does that still make it true? According to Webster’s dictionary truth is: “the quality or state of being true” “that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality” “a fact or belief that is accepted as true” So, I ask again. What is truth? Truth is not subjective. How can it be? If…

    Waiting on God

    Do you hate waiting on God? I definitely do. The problem is, it’s a big part of our lives as Christians. We are always waiting on God for something: a spouse, children, the right job, money, blessings, etc. There is never a time in our lives when we won’t be waiting for Him. He’s God and His timing, while perfect, never matches ours. My husband and I are going through that right now. God has made some promises to us that we believe by faith are from Him, but month after month goes by and there is no answer, no blessing, nothing. And the longer I wait, the more doubt…

    Love Does Not Rejoice in Evil

    In today’s post, I’m going to continue my study of love found in the Bible passage of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. I want to focus on the verse, “Love does not rejoice in evil.” I guess our first question is, what is evil? Let’s look at the Word of God. 20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.” (Mark 7:20-23)  29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They…
