Family History – A King, A Shepherd, and Fighting Shadows

Roi is a family name in my history on my paternal grandmother’s side. I know it often translates King from their French.  I’ve been delving into family history today and while examining this verse in one of my devotionals “Praying the Names of God”…

My God’s Will Test

How do I know if something is God’s will or not? Scriptures three things help me base my decisions and actions on that which I KNOW is God’s will. It is God’s Will that we know Him: Jeremiah 9:23-24 New International Version (NIV) 23 This is…

Facing Fears Productively – Part 2 an exercise

If we are allowing fears to control our lives, they are stunting us. They keep us from living God’s reality for us. And we keep fearing, even realizing if we think about it that most fears are never realized, and wasting a tremendous amount…

Facing Fears Productively – Part 1 of 2

I shared this in the past when the recession was on the horizon.  We have a new kind of fear developing these days with groups/peoples/factions seemingly stirring up hatred and separation.  This quote “Today the nations of the world may be divided into two…

Playing A Supporting Role in Music Ministry

Remember radios?  We used to ask what do you play (speaking of instruments) and if you didn’t play the “clever” reply was radio!  I don’t have a lick of talent with instruments, or singing, but I can still play a supporting role to music…

We say: “It’s impossible” God says: All things are possible (Luke 18:27) We say: “I’m too tired” God says: I will give you rest (Mat.11:28-30) We say: “Nobody really loves me” God says: I love you (John 3:16 & John 3:34) We say: “I…

Informed, But Not Armed?

Informed but not armed? We know the drill – we’ve heard the words – we may even have some of the scriptures memorized but have we applied them? How often do we PUT ON our physical clothing? Daily, right! (Sometimes more than once a…

Happiness is a Choice

This video spoke to me because a lot of times I find myself challenging my emotions.  I foolishly challenged someone else early today to reject those feelings for the lies they feed.  A few hours later I found myself confronted with the same challenge….

Three Prayers for Today

As you read this I will be in Tennessee praying with women from across the world. Isaiah’s prayer is a fitting prayer as we discuss and pray about the turmoil in the world today, and as relevant today as when first spoken: How we…

Enough?

It’s true I was raised with demeaning accusations that I was not enough, but now that I am grown and have raised my own children, now that I’ve known Christ, and now that I’ve recognized my gifts and my failings, I wonder why I…

What Happens Day after Diet

Have you seen the joke describing a typical diet day? BREAKFAST: 1/2 grapefruit 1 slice whole wheat toast 8 oz skim milk LUNCH: 4 oz lean Broiled chicken breast 1 cup steamed zucchini 1 Oreo Cookie Herb tea MID-AFTERNOON SNACK: Rest of package of…

Annanias and Commitment

This coming Monday will mark the last week of my 28 day detox.  I’ve learned a lot about commitment as I am determined in drinking more, and putting ON much more nutrition – and doing what is right to complete this plan.  Annanias was…
