What have you given up for the Kingdom?

Since we have made the announcement concerning the Bible Study, I have been writing tons! (I had been doing some writing – but mostly intense studying – but now I’m W.R.I.T.I.N.G.!) ¬† ūüôā Gathering the verses that focus on the Kingdom is always a delight – just because I love God’s Word – but today, … Continue reading

Seek First the Kingdom

So, we’re days away from the new year…. ¬†What could be a more valuable or incredible thing to give yourself than some transformed thinking and renewed (maybe just new?) passion for the Word of God? For the past few months, Jeff and I have been working on writing a Bible study, with the goal of … Continue reading

Siyach

They heard the sound of¬†the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day….they. ¬†Not just one person, but more than one, they. ¬†They, of course being Adam and Ishshah. ¬†Not Eve, for up to this point Adam’s only nomenclature for her is “woman.” ¬†(Just like a man – names all the … Continue reading

Plan X (cellent!)

‚ÄúThe most successful people are those who are good at Plan B.‚ÄĚ ¬†(James Yorke) ¬† To which I say, “Only those who don’t know my God.” That’s the thing about Father – His character is such that if we miss Plan A 10,ooo times, we’re still on Plan A with Him! ¬†He is a GOOD … Continue reading

For those of you purists who prefer to read full sentences, I apologize. ¬†But, I am finding the more time I spend in the Word, the shorter my sentences become. ¬†For example, “In the beginning…God” or “For God so loved the world, He gave.” As my knowledge and relationship with my Lord and Savior grows, … Continue reading

HOLD ON!

As a Mum of a goodly few, as a woman called to work with her husband, and home school and help a daughter establish her own business – somehow I can get lost in all the hats that I am to wear and I can easily find the call of the Lord for my life … Continue reading

How to grow good fruit

“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” Abide. ¬†Five letters put together that so adeptly explain how we’re to live with our Lord. ¬†Abide. Noah (uh, Webster, that is) explains it this way: … Continue reading

Have a drink!

“But Mom, I had water last night, I don’t need water this morning,” she said, crazy curls all over her wee head. ¬†“Silly bean! ¬†Your body used up all the water you drank last night. ¬†OF COURSE you need more water this morning,” while handing her her ballerina cup. Our spirits are no different. ¬†Yesterday’s … Continue reading
