When I cannot walk ON water, I walk through it. God divides it, makes a path and I walk it out. God did it for Elijah and Elisha so why couldn't He do it for us? He has, He is, let's go... We all remember that God parted the sea for Moses and they walked … Continue reading Divide the Water and Walk It Out
Who Is the Door, Who Answers the Door, Who Opens the Door?
Jesus does it all. He is the Savior. He answers the door when we knock and He opens closed and stuck doors for us. During chronic illness, there are a lot of doors we simply cannot open ourselves. I am used to doors being slammed in my face. I am used to them being tightly … Continue reading Who Is the Door, Who Answers the Door, Who Opens the Door?
I Cannot Be Separated From God
That simple. I simply cannot be separated from God. As a Christian I am secure in that knowledge and secure in His arms. Usually (not always) I read daily from my Bible-In-A-Year.

But my curiosity still wanted to know what animal could possibly … Continue reading Maker of the Behemoth
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
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
Does It Take Gifts To Keep Friends and Family?

Satan, Demons, Angels, Cherubim
The Bible is filled with all of it; Satan, Demons, Angels, and Cherubim. In a way, today is no different than the Biblical times, there is good and evil, war and peace. 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
Jesus Took Care of Our Reasons for Fear
Fear often grips us. We get stuck, in all kinds of ways. I LOVE being a Christian because Jesus took care of all the reasons I have fear. It is done!!! I am still human, it still sneaks in, and I still resort to Christ every time. Easter is a perfect reminder of what God … Continue reading Jesus Took Care of Our Reasons for Fear
