Blessed…because of Christ

The Beatitudes are a beautiful piece of Scripture that many just take in a literal sense, but they are so much more than that “Beatus” is translated as ”blessed” in Latin…we are blessed because we have found Jesus The Beatitudes will, at least, challenge…

Fill ‘er Up!

My heart breaks when I think about the parable of the Ten Virgins, in the Gospel of Matthew. It’s sad to think that some Christian’s believe they have enough “oil” to see them through until Jesus returns, but in reality, some of us rarely…

The Log in Our Eye

Are we tearing other people down in order to make ourselves look, or feel better? Jesus warned that instead of being critical about others and judging them against our own moral code, let God be the judge in His perfect timing. Because, we may…

Seeing Clearly

Personally, I think, our eyes are one of the most beautiful and captivating parts of the body. It is said that they are the gateway to our soul and I don’t think our eyes can hide our emotions or feelings. As Christian’s, we have…

Don’t Be a Rebel

As a child, I was always fearful of doing something wrong and therefore, I tried to do what was asked of me. However, in my teenage years…let’s just say that those weren’t the best times of my life, and looking back, unfortunately, that sprawled…

Loving Those You Hate

Ok, so this Scripture is one that we don’t like because it challenges us to our core. Enemies could be defined as a family member, ex-best friend, rivalry gang member, different culture, etc. – the list could go on. But the point Jesus was…

Don’t stop children

I love the attitude children have towards Jesus – simple yet powerful. If the Bible says it, it’s true. No debates. No stress. No doubt or fear. Sometimes, children are such a breath of fresh air because they have pure faith in their beliefs…

The body is weak

This verse literally sums up the struggle between our body and spirit. In the natural there is always a reason not to spend time with God…tiredness, sickness, running late, that deadline to meet etc. Yet, the supernatural is where the miracles reside. It’s where…

The Journey

Twelve years ago today, I became a Christian. Looking back, the ironic thing about my conversation being on Independence Day, was that I never knew what true freedom was. There was a large tapestry (of the scripture above) within the Church, in the United…

Today!

We often spend so much time thinking over the “what ifs,” that we then don’t get around to doing what God is asking of us. Do you worry about what tomorrow will bring? This scripture reminds me that God wants us to be bold,…

The seed of faith

In this parable about the mustard seed, Jesus shares that faith begins as a seed. Faith in God is planted in the soil of our hearts and cultivated by the Spirit, and over time, it produces the character of God, in us. Sometimes we…

Focus on God

It can be so easy to focus on “stuff,” rather than the main reason for us being alive – relationship with God. “Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.”…
