Our Responsibility to Respond (10/25/2018) - We did it!! Special thank you to every single person for hanging on to the very end of this 7-week Bible Study in the Gospel of Mark (Lisa Harper). I pray that you were able to take away one thing that blessed you! To end our time in this study, let’s reflect on Mark 16:15-18:…
The Beautiful Outcome of Our Lord’s Betrayal (10/18/2018) - Betrayed. Abandoned. Humiliated. Stranded. Thrown under the bus. Do you have a few stories of your own that made you feel…drastically alone? “The sober symphony of Calvary was arranged by these characteristic notes of betrayal.” This was the story leading up to Jesus’ death. “Our Savior’s murder was not a story just to give us…
Featured GUEST BLOGGER — Amy Elaine (10/12/2018) - I love coming across great websites in the blogging community and social media networks that inspires my soul. This week’s featured author is one that caught my heart. Her website, amyelaine.com, is all about helping heart-shattered lives become whole again and live in victory. Not only does she write, but Amy is a speaker and…
The Beginning of His Earthly End (10/11/2018) - The Bible is at times hard to read. There are times I’m left with emotions of frustration and hurt because I’m asking God, “Why did that happen in the Bible?” “Have you ever encountered things in Scripture that seemed tough or even wrong with harsh judgements that our soft hearts don’t want to consider?” I…
FREE Book Giveaway!!! (10/8/2018) - You’re blessed. You’re wealthy. You’re thinking, “Who me?! I don’t think so.” Before you disqualify yourself from being in that category, let me change your perception for a moment. I’m not talking about money. Wealth is far more than dollar bills in your bank account. However, that’s a blessing if you do have that, but…
Giving Up the “Right” To Ride Shotgun (10/4/2018) - We are more than half way through The Gospel of Mark Bible Study by Lisa Harper! Welcome to week 4 and I want to thank you for joining me every Thursday morning for diving deep into the study of really pursuing Jesus! Take some time this week to read the scripture reference and answer the…
Let Choices Lead and Feelings Follow (10/2/2018) - Help! There’s a tornado whirlwind of jeans, tops, and dresses all over my bedroom! I cannot make up my mind on what to wear so I throw every article of clothing I feel like wearing in every direction of my bedroom. Can anyone relate?? I like the idea of wearing one blouse in my mind…
Featured GUEST BLOGGER – ReeINSPIRED (9/28/2018) - This week’s featured guest is a Christian writer, Bible teacher, and breast cancer survivor. I came across her blog while on social media and had to share how she motivates and encourages people to press through life’s challenges, trials, and setbacks. Not only that, she has written a book called OVERCOMER: 25 Keys to Walking…
The Scandal of a Scarcity Mentality (9/27/2018) - Oh the Scandal!! What shame!! What embarrassment!! How preposterous the situation… When we are called to “dare greatly” but then we get sucked into the scandal of a scarcity mentality, also known as “the never-enough problem” (Brene Brown). Writer Lynne Twist said it best, “For me, and for many of us, our first waking thought…
God Isn’t Finished With You Yet (9/24/2018) - I wrote the post “The Comeback” over a year ago and wanted to revisit it again today, especially after being inspired by Tiger Wood’s legendary comeback yesterday. Your past is not the indicator of the future God has for you; neither is the present moment. In fact, we are all in this process called life…
