Faith, Righteousness & Being Tested

James 1 tells us that the testing of our faith should be considered as joyful… not simply looking at our circumstances and being happy about them but knowing that: God tests the righteous (Psalm 11:5) God delivers the righteous (Psalm 34) when perseverance has its perfect result we will be perfect and complete, lacking in […]

Parents vs Instagram

This post is titled “Parents vs Instagram” but really I’m not against Instagram or social media in general. I’m actually a big fan! (Although I’m not a fan of snapchat and some others…) I’m not against them (and I don’t think all parents should be either) because they can be used for good, and can be fun and I enjoy sharing pictures of my food and kids. What I’m against is the enemy who uses those tools for his divisive works to get into the minds and hearts of our young adults.

REfocus 2015

The Word the Lord has given me for 2015 is REFOCUS. I’ve been meditating on that for almost a month, now I’m ready to say it “out loud. …REfocus… I wasn’t exactly sure at first, where I needed to refocus. But I feel now that as I walk through this year with the Lord, He […]

Overcoming with Your Testimony

Our testimony is an ever-changing, growing journey. It is not simply the story of how we got saved. We are continually working out our salvation (Phil 2:12), continually going from glory to glory (2 Cor 3:18), continually learning more of who God is and who He made us to be. Each little testimony of victory […]

Overcoming Your Land of Giants

But Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said, “Let us go up at once and occupy it, for we are well able to overcome it.” Then the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we are.” (Numbers 13:30, […]

Reflecting on the Past Year

At the last church leadership meeting, our Pastor said (my paraphrase) “Some of you may came here from another church and took a break and now you are just waiting for permission [to use your gifts]. Well, here you go, you have permission.” That had been my exact thought a few weeks before. I felt […]

Making Worship True

I thought I’d go through my journal and messages I had written in the past and start blogging them. This message was for our youth group July 29, 2009. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. -John 4:24 I am by no means a worship leader like up […]

Foundation After Fire

For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will […]

For What is Your Heart Stirred?

In Exodus 36, we see that God gave specific people skill and intelligence to know how to do any work in constructing the sanctuary. Moses called every craftsman who God gave skill, everyone whose heart stirred him to come do the work. 2And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every craftsman in whose mind the […]

The Tempter

Continuing on with the remainder of James chapter 1… you can find part 1 here. James 1 is talking about trials and testing of our faith. I will pick up where we left off at verse 13, 13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, […]
