Time to Man-Up

"Brace yourself like a man; I will question you and you shall answer me." The Lord makes it clear, there are times we need to man-up. We are not as important as we think we are, and at the same time, we are loved much greater than our knowledge and insight can allow for. Yes, … Continue reading Time to Man-Up

The WHOLE Body

the whole body, God's way

I am always in awe of how God made our whole bodies. All the little parts that work together for the good of the whole body. Science still has not discovered all of the loving intricacies that God created. What we are discovering through science is that ALL the parts are needed for a well-functioning … Continue reading The WHOLE Body

Staying Focused On My Character, Not Others

There are choices and sides to be had. Social media has struck again. This week I ran into more than one conversation on … Continue reading Satan, Demons, Angels, Cherubim

A Cheerful Heart Is Good Medicine

A cheerful heart is good medicine. Sounds good. Sounds righteous. Sounds like something someone would say when they have not deeply suffered from chronic illness. God actually said it and Jesus did suffer, more than we can wrap our human brains around. So let's get a spoonful of medicine and practice that cheerful heart. HINT: … Continue reading A Cheerful Heart Is Good Medicine

Healing Wounds

Some of our wounds can be seen from the outside, and others not. Both can affect our lives very deeply. Both kinds of wounds can create a perfect storm for chronic illness. How do we heal the wounds so our bodies can be restored to health? Jesus can heal our wounds. He has healed so … Continue reading Healing Wounds
