YOU CAN BE FREE FROM THE BARS OF ENSLAVEMENT

“Oh, the fleeing of youthfulness and the onslaught of aging.” I remember when I was younger and heard older people say, “I have to get home before it gets dark;” “I don’t go to the gas station after dark;” “I do my grocery shopping and get my hair done early in the morning.” I was […]

BE CAREFUL WHO YOU ALLOW CLOSE TO YOU

Have you ever had the feeling that something was too good to be true? Like winning an expense paid trip to Hawaii. Like getting a new car donated to you. Like meeting ‘that special man’ who is too good to be for real. He seems to be perfect in every way – kind, generous, sensitive, considerate, […]

GIVE YOUR WAY OUT OF DEBT AND LACK…

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38 (NIV) Are you thankful for the gift of giving God has blessed you with? It is a gift if you […]

WHEN THE GOING GETS ROUGH – THE FAITHFUL GETS TOUGH

I looked up the word trial and one meaning was a test of faith, patience or stamina. Have you been going through a trial a long time and will be glad when you’ve passed the test? Have you sat on the side of the bed and cried for hours asking why you are going through the […]

THE MORE I LEARN – THE MORE I REALIZE I DON’T KNOW

I’ve been editing my third novel, PHOBOS, since 2011. When I think it’s ready to be submitted, I find out something I don’t know. And back to the editing cycle again. I first thought it was ready in 2013 when I attended a writers’ conference, was brave enough to have my first page read by […]

TESTIMONY – JUST TELL WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU

Do you sometimes fear witnessing to others because of fear you will say the wrong thing or not be able to think of scriptures to validate what you’re saying? I feel that way sometimes. I also fear that the person I’m witnessing to may be argumentative and I will not be able to respond adequately to their statements. I know, it sounds […]

BE THANKFUL FOR THE TROUBLES YOU DON’T HAVE

“Trouble follows me where ever I go.” “If it wasn’t for bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck at all.” “It’s like a dark cloud follows me wherever I go.” Have you ever made any of the above statements? I have and yes “trouble follows me where ever I am.” Not really, just joking. But I have had my […]

CHILDLIKE WONDER

I love life. I enjoy looking at God’s wonderful and beautiful handiwork. I like walking by oceans, lakes, and rivers – enjoying the beauty of Jehovah’s creation. I gaze in amazement and wonder at the works of His hands – how the ocean’s waves stop at a certain point; how the billows seem to have […]
