The Waiting is the Hard Part

eagle

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 »

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

 

verse

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!

WE HAVE BEEN DECEIVED CHURCH!!!

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 »

*Guest Post* Can I Get a Witness…!

CAN I GET A WITNESS….!

Truth

From the early dawn of human history the eternal being known as ‘GOD’ has revealed Himself empirically by His ability to communicate; long before the establishment of various man-made religions God has accurately and consistently throughout time revealed His truth thru verbal and written testimony to humanity “God who in different times and in various ways spoke in time past to the forefathers and prophets” (Hebrews 1:1)

Now with the ability to communicate the attribute of intelligence is a requirement, only a Supreme Intelligent being such as God, who can and does speak to another intelligent being created in His image and likeness…Man. Communication by definition is someone revealing accurate facts about himself, his character, what he knows, revealing his thoughts to us as lesser created beings; seeking our attention and requiring us to respond to that truth. And the standard of that of communication must be based on Intelligence, Truth and Reason and the character of God himself; the very concept of truth originates with God who is Living Truth, who also possesses impeccable integrity as a character trait; as it is written “It is impossible for God to lie” (Hebrews 6:18)

God has also determined the principle on which to determine the validity of truth from His written record “BY THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES, LET THE MATTER BE ESTABLISHED!” (Deut. 19:15) this will be the determining factor in this article by which the truth of the matter will be established.

GUEST POST: GOD and Racism

racism

“WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF EVIDENT THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, THAT THEY ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN INALIENABLE RIGHTS” – The Declaration of Independence

Racism has been and is one of the most detrimental social evils ever imposed on the mind of man, and has been one of the main causes for global conflicts, genocidal (ethnic cleansing) wars and mans inhumanity to man; and sadly some of its greatest proponents have been by men who claim God endorses this belief; racism is a core belief that ones skin-color and ethnic background alone makes an individual or people group superior and privileged over others who do not share the same skin pigment and has been used as justification for the oppression, suppression and elimination of cultures other than their own; but for some strange reason the individuals holding to such beliefs automatically make the assumption THEIRS is superior above all others.

Western Europe and America have been particularly guilty of exporting this social evil over the centuries; persons of this mind-set naturally need to find a “scapegoat” to make themselves feel superior by enforcing and flaunting this belief system upon those they deem inferior; historically speaking, some 17th century English speaking Christians while escaping persecution and seeking social justice and freedom for themselves have brought these racial prejudices to Americas shores have at the same time denied it to others all the while carrying a bible in their hands, because they believe the bible says so….                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Gods word has been used to justify slavery, segregation, the mistreatment and murder of minorities, making marriages between people illegal by people of diverse backgrounds solely base on “race”  but is this biblically based? Do these beliefs draw support from scripture?                                                     But from the church that is called by God to be “the pillar and ground of the Truth” (1Tim 3:15) I hear a deafening silence….

Martin Luther King once described Sunday morning worship as “the most segregated time in America”…. Read the rest of this entry »
