Jesus Wants To Flip Your Tables

There is a song by Rita Springer called Phenomenon and in this song she says, “forgive me oh Lord, if I’ve been a marketplace and turn me upside down so I will seek your face.” I’ve always loved this song and these words in particular

Let God Transform You

C.S. Lewis is my favorite author and there is one quote by him that always resonates with me.  “Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the

NaNoWriMo Days 2,3 and 4

Okay, for those of you who follow me on social media, you know that I haven’t written anything until today. On day two I had the most horrible pain in my hip and leg and I’m sure it was gout.  Yes, in my hip!  UGH!

NaNoWriMo Day 1

Today was the first day of NaNoWriMo.  If you don’t know what that is, you can visit www.nanowrimo.org and find out the details, but if you want a general idea, here you go.  NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It happens every November.  I’ve participated

An Interview With August Rain

Okay, you guys have heard me talking about doing interviews on social media.  Today I’m excited to bring you the first one!  I’m even more excited that the first interview is with August Rain!  If you’ve not heard their music, I hope you’ll take the

Changes

This is my favorite time of year.  The long hot summer has come to an end and things are changing.  The days are gettings shorter and the trees are changing color.  I’m always sad that the color doesn’t last long.  The beauty of autumn has

Lies, Lies, Nothing But Lies

What do you see in this picture?  A window, right?  Do you know what stands out to me? I see a room that seems like a dungeon almost.  It’s not a comforting place.  Yet, there is the window. If we’re being honest most of us

It Is Well

Do you remember the story in the bible in 2 Kings 4:8-37?  Where the Shunamite woman’s son died?  If you don’t it’s okay, I’ll refresh your memory.  This man and woman watched Elisha pass by them all the time.  They started inviting him in to

Daily Bread

When I was a child I remember my grandmother having a small container that was shaped like a loaf of bread.  Inside it had small cards with scriptures written on them.  I loved to pull them out and read them.  It was called Daily Bread.

What Are You Harvesting?

It’s my favorite time of year!  Autumn is known for being a time of harvest.  With that in mind, I’ve been thinking today about sowing and reaping.  The bible says: Galatians 6:7  “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that

Broken For A Purpose

There are times in our life when we cry out to God and ask him why.  We beg for answers.  Sometimes it feels like we’ve been ripped apart at the seams and we’re lying on the ground in a million pieces.  We search for answers

What Am I Doing?

I hope you all are doing well today!  I’m writing to update you guys on what I’m doing and what I hope to be doing in the future.  If you’ve read this blog, then you know I lost my dad last month.  It’s been really

Stop Hoarding The Past

If you’re like me, you’re a hoarder.  I like to keep all kinds of things.  I mostly keep them because of a memory that may be associated with the object.  I think for the most part a lot of us can identify with that.  While you may not hoard them,

Trust The Author

Life is a journey.  The story takes unexpected turns and we find ourselves in places we never thought we’d be.  That’s the beauty of life.  Uncertainty, although scary, is what gives life meaning. Think about it.  Love comes unexpectedly.  Children sometimes come unexpectedly.  Job promotions,

The Alarm Is Going Off

It’s time.  As a matter of fact, we’re late!  If you are a Christian in America, your need to be coddled by a pastor has put the church to sleep.  We’ve been so focused on growing the numbers that we’ve set aside sound biblical teaching.  Now, we’re
