Fruit of the Spirit | Galatians 5:22

  Galatians 5:22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things. Prayer Abba Father, I need your Holy Spirit to produce fruit in my life. Help me to be more loving, more joyful, more peaceful, more patience. Help me to have more kindness, more goodness, more faithfulness, be more gentle, and have more self-control. These are the fruit of {Read More}

How to Know the Truth | Guest Post {+ Giveaway}

Truth. Some say it’s all relative, but let’s face it, those people are kind of missing the entire definition of “truth.” When something is true it inherently means that everything else that contradicts it is not true. Truth is absolute, correct, accurate. It does not bend to feelings or changes in culture, it simply is. Truth is also generally not popular opinion. Today’s culture elevates acceptance, and moreover, the actual condoning of sin in the name of “love,” over the {Read More}

Why It’s OK To Label Our Kids

We’ve all heard it said that it’s important not to label our children. “She’s the shy one.” “He’s the trouble maker.” “If she’s this moody now she’s going to be big trouble by the time she’s a teen.” As a mom of ten, I learned personally that this type of labeling does not benefit our children. Up until my daughter, Leslie, was four-years-old I thought she was shy. She always hid behind me when we were around new people, and {Read More}

How is God at Work in Your Life?

How is God at Work in Your Life? I’ve been working through Experiencing God (again), and I find myself pondering Reality One: God is Always at Work Around You. This is summed up in John 5:17: But Jesus replied, “My Father is always working, and so am I.” The same God Christ knew as His Father, is our Heavenly Father today. God was working before He sent Christ to the world. He was working while Christ was in the world. And {Read More}

Living the Impossible Life {by Marlo Schalesky}

It was another impossible day in my normally impossible life. I woke to Jayden’s blood glucose monitor shrilly announcing a low blood sugar, one twin fiercely arguing with the four-year-old about a pencil, the bunnies escaped from their cages and running rampant (and leaving little round “signs” of where they’d been) all over the room, and one ten-year-old shouting about the Warriors shirt she just had to wear to school today, but of course, could not find. I should have {Read More}

Boast in the Lord | 1 Corinthians 1:26-31

Saturday Scripture 1 Corinthians 1:26-31 26 For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; 28 God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, 29 so that no human {Read More}

Put Your Work Aside and Enjoy God’s Presence

The priests could not continue their service because of the cloud, for the glorious presence of the Lord filled the Temple. 1 Kings 8:11 (NLT) Has there ever been a time in your life when you were so amazed at God’s presence that you simply had to pause? Pause to take Him in, pause to rejoice, pause to reflect on how amazing God truly is? I remember a time when I was folding a load of laundry, and I almost sank {Read More}

Go from Good to Great

“For the Law never made anything perfect—but instead a better hope is introduced through which we [now] come close to God.” Hebrews 7:19 (AMP) My friend Kayleigh is 15 years younger than me, but 15 times more serious in the kitchen. While I am an adequate cook, Kayleigh pours through recipe books to discover the next great recipe. When our church had a dessert contest for a lady’s event, Kayleigh spent all day making chocolate ganache tarts and she won {Read More}

9 Important Things God Asks Each Of Us To Do

So many times we want God to reveal Himself to us. We question if He is real. And if we do believe in Him, we expect Him to really put Himself on display in big ways. What I’ve discovered the 27 years since I’ve become a Christian is that I’ve learned more about God by focusing on the priorities—the main things He asks us to do—in the Bible than any other way. It seems the Bible is made up of {Read More}

How to Survive God Seeing Your Everything {by Christy Fitzwater}

The table was kind of full, so I slid down against the wall and invited little girls to come say their Bible verses to me on the floor. “Can you help me learn this verse?” asked one girl, after she plopped down next to me. “Of course,” I said. “Well, the first place to start is to make sure you really understand the verse. That makes it a lot easier to remember.” So we read Psalm 139:2: You know when {Read More}
