Our Strength

Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.  As they pass through the Valley of Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; Each one appears before God in Zion (Psalm 84:5-7, NKJV). Photo by YURI MANEI from Pexels Our strength lies in the power of God's Word and His Spirit. Our …

Light in Darkness

The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple - Psalm 119:130 I don't like darkness. It's heavy, oppressive and downright scary. It makes you feel helpless, vulnerable and causes you to stumble because you can't see where you're going or what's in front of you. What gets rid of the darkness? …

Abide in His Love

"If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love" - John 15:10 NKJV Image by Rondell Melling from Pixabay Jesus said that if we love Him we will keep His commandments.  Like the Father, love and obedience are synonymous to Jesus.  …

Bread Alone

But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God’” - Matthew 4:4 NKJV The trouble with most temptations is that they may seem harmless or even good for us. After all, what's wrong with turning a stone into bread …

Breaking Up

I grew up in a Christian home, read the Bible everyday, went to only Christian schools and attended a Christian university. Most of my friends were Christians. I didn't drink, smoke, go to clubs or even the movies. I didn't read certain types of books and I listened to only two types of music--Christian and …

A Very Tough Decision

"You look bored," Tiffany said to her friend, Fiona. "I'm not bored," Fiona replied. She wasn't bored but she was anxious to leave. It was near six o'clock and she was supposed to be going over to Darth's place. Her heart skipped a beat at the mere thought of him. No one knew about their …

From Enemy to Friend

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good - Romans 12:20, 21 I'm looking at a photo of Jenn which was taken last summer.  …

Doubt

“Occupy your mind with My love, leaving no room for worry and doubt.” Doubt is like a bad penny.  It always keeps turning up.  It seems that no matter how many times we see the hand of God working in our lives, there is always room for doubt.  Even when we have a close relationship …

The Pure Milk

...desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,  if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious - 1 Peter 2:2, 3, NKJV I remember when I was still breastfeeding, how on one occasion, my son was crying because he was hungry.  When I held him in my arms and he latched on, I saw his eyes …

Walking Away

Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? - 2 Corinthians 6:14 There signs were there but either she was blind to them or she didn't want to see them.  They spoke at odd hours.  She never met his family or …
