    The Road To Damascus

    “But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who dwelt in Damascus, proving that this Jesus is the Christ.” – Acts 9:22 What do you want to be when you grow up?  We come across many points in life where we ask the questions.  Who am I? What do I want to be? Where I want to go?   There is nothing wrong with having dreams and setting goals for yourself; however, the problem comes when it becomes all about, “I.” We are all put on this earth with gifts and a purpose in using them.  Not just for ourselves but for others, and to glorify our…

    Deep calls to deep

    From Sea to Calling Sea A voice calls out to me From deep to mighty deep piercing through the waves I sing your praise; oh ancient of days From shore to shore Though the storm will rage I am not overcome Your mighty hand guides me on From dawn til setting sun Your name is to be praised on high For the victory is already won. Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. Psalm 42:7 (NIV)

    Point of Reference

    Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. Ephesians 2:19-22 (NIV) According to Merriam Webster “Point of Reference” is a fixed point, or a place or thing, that is used to judge or understand something. I can remember numerous times in my own life where I questioned things. Where I was going, what…

    The Silver Lining

    “Then put my personal silver cup at the top of the youngest brother’s sack, along with the money for his grain.” Genesis 44:2 Joseph was a righteous guy but also a sneaky one. In the story of Genesis 44:2 it would seem only natural that Joseph would want to get back at his brothers for what they did to him. I mean they had sold him for twenty pieces of silver into slavery, but only because Judah, full of mercy, did not want the other brothers to kill him. Little did his brothers know they were about to find out God’s perfect plan for Joseph, them, and what mercy and…

    More than Conquerors

    What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us,who can be against us? Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:31  All of us have a calling and purpose in this life given by God. It can take us time to figure out just what it is that God wants us to do, but there is one thing I can tell you for sure: When you decide to move forward and do something for God, you are bound to face adversity; I can 100 % guarantee…

    The Royal Wedding

    “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her” Ephesians 5:25 With the Royal Wedding over with I am consistently going back and searching up YouTube for bits and pieces of what I may have missed. It was a long wedding! But a beautiful one, and one many were anxiously awaiting. I was so excited watching, as It reminds me of a fairy-tale, and for Meghan and Harry, I’m sure it was. I was obsessed with Meghan’s facial expressions and just trying to guess what she might be feeling at the moment. The smiles on their faces were absolutely contagious. The idea that a…

    Seed of Life

    “Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.” Hebrews 12:15 (NLT) I was working in the garden today. I was digging up these roots that seemed never ending. There is a plant coming up in multiple spots almost like tall blades of grass and the roots grow so deep that it’s hard to uproot them. I have to be sure to get all the way down so that it doesn’t come back up rearing it’s ugly head. I’ve been dealing with them for a couple of years…

    Ode to the Shooting Star

    “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?” Psalms 8:3-4 (NIV) In the deepest darkest moments; in my wintry hour of despair, you send a shooting star firing through the air. Lighting up the night; distracting evil schemes, thoughts invading my mind; disappear like a dream. Into unknown galaxies they go, as quickly as they came. As the earth doth ebb and flow, In reverence to His name. Pure and pristine; swift in flight, joy has surely arrived tonight. Ode to The Shooting Star.…

    Hello Me. Nice To Meet You.

    And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die. 2 Samuel 12:13 David sinned against God in a pretty major way, yet God still loved him, and had a huge purpose for his life, and loved him regardless. Just because David sinned did not mean he didn’t have a good heart. He was referred to as a man after God’s own heart. But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the Lord hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast…

    Victory Through Forgiveness – I Can Only Imagine

    “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32 “For this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” Matthew 26:28 The way to victory is through forgiveness. Without Jesus first forgiving us, we would have no grounds to forgive. Now we have no excuse. How can we expect to be forgiven if we do not forgive. “For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” Matthew 6:14-15 It doesn’t matter how…
