For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Romans 10:10

I came across this Scripture a few days ago and it has stuck with me since. “Made right with God” I continually repeat. When I make a mistake, when I say the wrong thing, when I don’t do the right thing to live a life of ease I think to myself this is not who I am, Because God said He made me right, right with Him....

I will offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of the LORD. Psalm 116:17

Thankfulness is a sacrifice because to be honest I am more quick to think of things I lack, the things I think I need to be happy, the people I wish would change because as we know I am so perfected but a sacrifice of thanksgiving is something I have to consciously decided to do. To purposely remind myself of all the good things God has done for me. I have it written down because it d...

“Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when it is bad, your body is filled with darkness.” Luke 11:34

I once had eyes that could not see that the way I was living my life was dark indeed. I did things without a second thought as to who I was hurting even if I brought that harm upon myself it didn’t really matter to me because in the end I got what I wanted what I thought I coul...

My hope comes from these 4 simple words repeated throughout Scripture:

What’s more I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you. Genesis 28:15

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand....

That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our Spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

If t...

At this juncture in my life I am thinking about the hope of restoration found in Jeremiah chapter 31 because to be honest the stresses I face are no different than most. Right now we are struggling in our finances, we overextended ourselves over the summer and are paying for it in the fall. We spent what we didn’t have to spend and now we find ourselves in debt yet again. Disappointed that we didn’t save more for the unexpected things like tires, AC repair, additional purchases fo...

And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.*(In Greek have put on Christ.) Galatians 3:27

“Put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.” Alarm clock rings at 520am I chug down a glass of juice, wash my face, brush my hair, pull it up, put on my workout pants, a faded t-shirt and shoes and head out the door within 10 minutes of opening my eyes. I greet the moon, my day starts before sunrise. My shower is the ...

…everything has remained the same since the world was first created. 2 Peter 3:4

Mockers still mock. The foolish are still fools. The fearful are still afraid. People still suffer. Physical pain still has its way in bodies that fade. As Isaiah puts it in 26:10 the wicked keep doing wrong and take no notice of the LORD’s majesty. Even the same sins that still tempt us still remain. Faith in one true God. Hope that there is. Loving others also the same, the same, ...

Rejoice, you people of Jerusalem! Rejoice in the LORD your God! For the rain He sends demonstrates His faithfulness. Once more the autumn rains will come, as well as the rains of spring. The threshing floors will again be piled high with grain, and the presses will overflow with new wine and olive oil. Joel 2:23-24

Though fall is still officially over a month away, fall has begun in my home. I have survived the summer, my son has returned to school. So the time I know as ...

Has any other god dared to take a people for Himself out of another nation by means of trials, miraculous signs, wonders, war, a strong hand, a powerful arm, and terrifying acts? Yet that is what the LORD your God did for you in Egypt, right before your eyes. Deuteronomy 4:34

Yup that sounds about right, I came to know God by more trials than I care to count. More miraculous signs that had no explanation but God for. Wonders that overwhelmed me to tears. War so torn in my ow...
