The Waiting is the Hard Part


What is it? You are waiting for something. A pay raise? A call back about a new job you interviewed with? News about a loved one’s health scare? A loved one to be delivered…like yesterday? Jesus to return? It is torturous, it almost seems impossible. We feel frustrated, angered, ready to take the reigns and solve things ourselves even though we are no doctor, lawyer, business owner or….*gasp* God. 

However when you are waiting it is nearly impossible to not feel “god-like” at some point, and get to where we are so impatient and frustrated we can “do this”! So we….quit our jobs, “believing by ‘faith’ that’s what God would have us do”. We call and frustrate the administrative assistant at the job we interviewed at five hours ago, to the point where she shreds our resume. We harangue the relative that needs delivered about “coming to church” until they totally disregard God…and us. We. Can’t Wait. Read the rest of this entry »

Come to Church or You’re Not Saved!

Wait, what? What is salvation? I think it is time for a back to basics lesson, because as the days get darker and time seems to be steamrolling past us, it seems like people…umm..”Christians” have forgotten the basic mandate Jesus gave us.


 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. -Matt. 28:19-20.

“Go therefore….make disciples…of all nations…”. I know later in our bibles we are told not to forsake the assembling of ourselves and other variations of gathering: Hebrews 10:25, Colossians 3:16, Acts 2:42, Acts 9:31, but in all these scriptures I did not see a mandate  that church attendance is a requirement to be saved. We have veered off-track people of God!

Salvation Island

In my work I am surrounded by people. Many people. Different ages, different cultures, different levels of intellect. I work at a University. A world of diversity, from starry-eyed first generation freshman to seasoned seniors ready to take on the world. From long-term staff members to tenured faculty members. From people with only a high school diploma who had an “in”, to those with several graduate and doctoral degrees. There are many, many people here. Yet I am stranded on Salvation Island, which can seem like the loneliest place in the world to a Believer in Christ. Read the rest of this entry »

When Worlds Collide – A Personal Testimony

Dear readers, I will not bore you with why I’ve been away so long; please just know I have missed writing and sharing much more than you’ve missed reading. The good news is that on the surface everything is fine, my faith is still strong, Jesus is still my rock, I am making strides in my work in sharing the gospel with college students and my family is well.

But…..when worlds collide…


The bible says:

Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. – Proverbs 22:6

This is what my husband and I held onto our whole lives. We taught, he preached, we encouraged and exhorted. We prayed, we believed and we held onto the promise. That is what you’re supposed to do as a rock solid Christian, right? Well recently, and I will say in the last few years, our faith has been rocked to the core. We have been tried and tested by satan’s influence over one of our children, yet we persevered through it and he seems to be finding his way. I have always been one to pretty much present myself as unshakeable, especially knowing who God is and understanding His ways, but the last few months… Read the rest of this entry »

A Daily Word



Ahhh yes, this is how to start your day! Your electronic device beeps, letting you know that your “Word of the Day” is ready, you unlock your phone while brushing your teeth, read the scripture of the day, feel energized by it and rush off to work! Wonderful, God is good…all the time and all the time….God is good!


The “word of the day” is not enough to sustain us! It is a trick of the enemy. Do you REALLY think the devil cares if you read ONE scripture per day. Do YOU think that one scripture per day is enough to protect you from the hand of the enemy? Let me be the voice of reason, No. It is not. Trust me, I have 7 bible “apps” on my phone and they are useful to an extent, i.e. a quick reference tool or to share a scripture with a friend or colleague or to a social media outlet. They do not replace the full bible, in my opinion. Yet I have people tell me, “girl….the Word I got from Blue Letter this morning was on point”! Read the rest of this entry »

Approval Ratings

GISATG-LargeThat’s what we like to hear! We have been classically conditioned from childhood to seek approval from our parents, our teachers, our peers and our elders in general. Who hasn’t been to church as a child, sat quietly and been rewarded for it with those Starlight Mints, yum! Job well done child. As we grew older that same dependence on positive affirmation continued; we did well in school and Mom/Dad/Grandma/Uncle or Big Brother rewarded our “A’s” with dollar bills, we played sports and the teams were rewarded with a trophy or a snack after the game (win OR lose these days). We go to work and hard work is rewarded with bonuses, promotions, vacations or plaques. Society is filled to the brim with “Atta Boys”. And we expect it. Read the rest of this entry »
