    Show Me A Sign

    “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues.” – Mark 15:17 When you are a new believer; you are full of fresh faith, and excited to see what God will do.  On earth we see the rainbow as a sign of a rainstorm’s end, a bird’s song to signify the beginning of spring, and leaves to fall and change color as a sign that fall is near.  God used the rainbow as a sign back in Noah’s day that He would no longer flood the earth.    “I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the…

    To new beginnings

    “Live a life of inspiration, and of passion.  Anything else is eating away at time, and dying a slow painful death, rather than living.  Toiling and laboring for nothing but bread and futility.  Man cannot live on bread alone.  There is a purpose, a time and a season, and a God that oversees it all.”  – Amanda Batten “Make each day a masterpiece, we do not remember the days, we remember moments.”  Laughing with family and friends until it hurts, odd moments that are perfect because they are not, and will live forever in stories.  We may already be into the New Year, but it’s never too late for new…

    “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…

    The Constant Gardener

    “Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.  The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” – Genesis 2:8-9 One of the oldest professions in the world is Gardening.  Without gardening we wouldn’t have the beautiful flowers and plants to grace our living space with, and perhaps farmers wouldn’t know how to grow crops.  The Garden of Eden was created…

    The Human Spirit

    “This is true because, being made in God’s image, we are not human beings having an occasional spiritual experience; rather we are spiritual beings having a temporary human experience.” – Steven Sjogren (Excerpt from, “The Day I Died.”) We sometimes forget that we are only part human, and our flesh is mortal.  God is talked about as a triune being; therefore, if man is made in God’s image, we are also triune; yet we are one person.  Man, is made up of three different parts – Spirit, Soul and Body.  To live we have to take care of our physical man, our spiritual man, and our soul.  Too often we…
