    Unshaken

    This devotional I wrote last January for an online publication called, Happy Sis. The magazine issue was called, Overcoming Fear.

I encourage you to go to the website and check out all that it has to offer, even freebies! Click Here To Visit Happy Sis! Unshaken “Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.” – Psalm 91:6 I hate to sleep in a room that is too warm.  I decided to open my window one night to let some fresh air in.  My dog likes to sleep right…

    What is your worst fear?

    “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” – 2 Timothy 1:7 The phrase, “Do Not Fear,” is written in the bible 365 times.  Does that mean God is telling us we can live fearlessly every day of the year? When asked what my worst fear is, my quick answer is usually a description of an eight legged creature with black fur and beady eyes.   The spider!  But in truth my heart fears many other things.  It’s natural to have weaknesses and fear certain things. Fear can be a natural healthy thing where our bodies warn us of danger, and then there’s the other…

    Name Your Giant

    “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.” – Mark 11:23 We all face things in life, problems that can be so hard to face that they often feel like mountains or giants.  They can come in many different forms such as doubt and unbelief, financial issues, health issues, relationship issues, and sometimes a big one is lack of self confidence. In the book of Samuel, David faced Goliath even though the odds didn’t look so great, given the size of…

    Praying For Paris

    “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” – John 10:10 I was horrified to hear on the news that Paris had been the victim of a terrorist attack. My first thought was, Isis. This world is so full of evil, and corruptness. Not to say that there isn’t any good in the world, but it’s so evident every time I turn on the news what we are dealing with.  A lot of people want to blame God, because He isn’t evidently stepping in. But what do you…

    Ouch

    The other day I noticed a small splinter in my finger.  It hurt so bad, that it affected me the whole day because that’s all I could concentrate on .  To be honest it’s still there!  It’s amazing how the smallest of things can hold our attention.  The smallest of afflictions can become strongholds, and affect everything we do. An affliction is something that causes pain or unhappiness.  Sometimes we fight it and other times we simply learn to live with it.  We ask it to move in with us.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t do well with roommates.  And the old saying, “Misery loves company,” is…

    The Greatest Monument

    There are many famous towers in the world.  The Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy; The Eiffel Tower of Paris, making France known for it’s beautiful ability to light up the sky. No wonder they call it, “The City Of Lights.” The Twin Towers of New York was a huge attraction, and the home of the world trade center – an American cultural icon. Tragedy struck the towers down, causing people to lose their sense of security; however, as a nation they pulled together and rebuilt a memorial in its place.  The human spirit is quite a thing. The CN tower in Canada is one of my favorites since it’s…

    Go Ahead And Ask

    “Gideon said to God, “If you will save Israel by my hand as you have promised— look, I will place a wool fleece on the threshing floor. If there is dew only on the fleece and all the ground is dry, then I will know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you said.” And that is what happened. Gideon rose early the next day; he squeezed the fleece and wrung out the dew—a bowlful of water.”  Judges 6:36-38  Gideon wondered why all sorts of bad things were happening in his life.  Much like we often ask the question in this world today, as to why God would…
