    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…

    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…

    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…
