    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…

    This little light of mine

    In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16 I didn’t grow up in a christian home. I celebrated Halloween like all the other kids, and thought nothing of it. All I knew is that I got to dress up and collect a bunch of candy! Seems innocent enough. I remember going by certain houses and they had their lights completely turned off. No decoration or sign of life; nothing. Everyone said they were Christians and they don’t believe in celebrating Halloween. We simply didn’t go to those houses because we didn’t feel invited,…

    The True North strong and free!

    “The Lord gave this message to Jonah son of Amittai: “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh. Announce my judgment against it because I have seen how wicked its people are.” But Jonah got up and went in the opposite direction to get away from the Lord.” Jonah 1:1-3 Sometimes in life we find ourselves lost and in difficult situations that we have no control over. “Up the creek without a paddle,” so to speak. When we find ourselves at our lowest place, be it family issues, financial issues, health problems etc. It can be hard to rise above the harsh waters we find ourselves surrounded by. It is all to easy…

    Cause and Effect

    The dictionary explains cause and effect this way: Cause and effect is a relationship between events or things, where one is the result of the other or others. This is a combination of action and reaction. Every make a volcano for a science experiment and watch as the baking soda and vinegar explode, or stick something metal in the microwave by mistake? Well, I have and certainly never did it again. I am always so curious about finding out how and why things are the way they are, and how everything works. The moon is pretty cool, it gives us light and is responsible for causing the tides to become high. I…

    Sit still and be quiet!

    And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. Luke 1:20 Sometimes in life our words get us into trouble. The bible says that death and life are in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21) Sometimes we can’t hear from God because we simply can’t stop talking. Our minds are always distracted by the chaos around us, even our inner talk. The story of Zachariah and Elisabeth is an interesting one. They both wanted a child; however, Elisabeth was barren. They were old and it seemed impossible. Little…

    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…
