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 […]

YES, GOD SETS BOUNDARIES

“Should you not fear me?” declares the Lord. “Should you not tremble in my presence? I made the sand a boundary for the sea, an everlasting barrier it cannot cross. The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail; they may roar, but they cannot cross it.”……………………………………………………………….Jeremiah 5:22 (NIV) I was astounded at a face book post that showed the […]

YOU ARE REDEEMED

Do you wake up some mornings with thoughts filled with regrets? You attempt to pray. You try to focus on other things. You engage in reading, cleaning, meditating, but the thoughts keep creeping into your consciousness – you should have done better with your children; you could have been a better wife; you should be […]

ROSES AND CHOCOLATES

When I was dating, many years ago, I’d get upset when my boyfriend forgot to buy me chocolates or flowers on Valentines’ day or Sweetest day. My friends bragged about the jewelry, candy, and flowers they got on those holidays which led me to have a lengthy discussion with my man. Most of you will […]

USING EVERY SECOND TO THE FULLEST

“Teach us to number our days; that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”  __________________________Psalm 90:12 (NIV) You take a personal day or a mental health day off. You sleep in until 11:00 a.m. You pray, read the Bible, stretch, and finally get out of bed, shower, brush teeth, and eat breakfast – by now […]

BUT I DON’T WANT TO DO IT…

Last week I made a statement to my work associate not realizing the intercom was on. It wasn’t anything ‘bad’ or ‘negative’ but was supposed to be a dialogue between me and my colleague. I said, “They need to…” as I hung up the phone. My associate rushed back into the office, breathing fast, “They […]

ARE YOU WEARING YOUR FEELINGS ON YOUR SLEEVE LIKE A BADGE?

I’ve discussed love, partnership, and godly relationships this month, focusing on what we, individually, need to do to prepare ourselves for our mates. Today I’ll finish with a discussion on super-sensitivity. Super-sensitivity is someone that is easily hurt emotionally. Someone who reacts according to the attitudes and feelings of others. Someone that is excessively or […]

KILL THE CHILDISH WAYS

Hello again… There are multiple issues women and men need to expose in their lives before they go to the altar. I picked out three to discuss this month, not because they’re the most profound, perhaps unconsciously because they are  the areas I need to deal with. Insecurity is being beset by fear and anxiety. Always […]

ARE YOU STILL ON THE POTTER’S WHEEL?

Last week I talked about LOVE…What love is and what love is not. For the next three blogs I’m going to talk about  traits we should look at in ourselves first so we will be prepared and ready when God allows us to meet that ‘special’ someone created just for us. We need to ask God to […]

LOVE IS THE SECRET TO YOUR SUCCESS

  “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, […]
