It’s Not the Same

When you're comforting someone, do you say, "I know how you feel"? I recently realized that a person really doesn't know how another person feels when my sister told me of the sad story of a mother whose two sons were among the victims of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 which crashed and burned in …

All Things to All People

"If the Bible were a wine, it would be Chardonnay." Her eyebrows rose. "Chardonnay?" "Yes, the Chardonnay of Truth," he said as he raised the glass and took a sip. "Why Chardonnay?" she asked. "Like Chardonnay, the Bible can be all things to all people. It can be a source of hope for some, comfort …

Doubts

"When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer" -Psalm 94:19. This is so true.  Whenever I have doubts about my ability to perform a task, God always reassures me through His word or someone that I can do it.  Just recently, I was having second thoughts about a position at …

My Marvelous God

"You can be sure of this: The Lord has set apart the godly for himself. The Lord will answer when I call to him. Don't sin by letting anger gain control over you. Think about it overnight and remain silent. Offer proper sacrifices, and trust in the Lord. Many people say, "Who will show us …

The Lord is my shepherd

Losing and Finding Love

I was cleaning out my desk when I came across a picture of Susanna.  I stared it for a moment.  She was easily the most beautiful woman I had ever known.  When we met ten years ago in Aspen, it was love at first sight for me.  Her beautiful, angelic face was framed by long, …

Overcoming Fear

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind - 2 Timothy 1:7 I used to think that as a Christian woman, fear isn't something I should ever feel so whenever I experienced it, I felt guilty and chided myself, saying, "You shouldn't be feeling …

I Love Him

"You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the LORD" - Leviticus 19:28, NKJV I never thought of getting a tattoo until I met and fell in love with Roger.  We met at a book fair four years ago.  We were book lovers …
