How to Receive the HappyJoyLife!
If you’re like me, you may have grown up in church, hearing about the “HappyJoyLife” that the Bible promises – peace, health, prosperity, success, joy – the list goes on…but you may also have wondered “Why don’t I SEE those things happening in MY life???” Have you ever wondered why true success, blessings and happiness […]
Happy Birthday, Jesus…
Out of all the people born on this planet, it is marvelous to realize that You were the one and only human being ever to walk on this planet that actually CHOSE to be born… You – Maker of this vast universe, galaxies and beyond…You – Who holds every creation together…You – Who has the […]
Grace Has Made You Perfect!
When was the last time you looked in the mirror and said to yourself, “You’re perfect!”? If you are like most people, chances are the answer is – never! Sometimes, we can often be our very worst critics. Looking at ourselves through the mirror of our lives, we are experts at spotting our sins, imperfections, […]
Don’t Be a Religious Snob
Looking at today’s church, it seems that most have lost touch with the things that are most important to Jesus. Religious people and churches have a tendency to get caught up in behavior modification (“I never smoke, drink, cuss, etc…I read my Bible every day, I fast, pray, etc.”), thinking that this is what’s it’s […]
You Are Invited!
I’ve been putting this off and putting this off. But finally the time has come for me to stop with the excuses and do what my Abba Father has put in front of me to do. I am starting a Bible Study at the first of the year, and I’d like to invite you and […]
What’s Love Got to Do With It?
I want to tell you something about myself that I think most Christians never want to admit… Although I’ve been a Christian for most of my life, I spent many of my years in fear, feeling stressed out and wondering if my relationship with God was “right” enough. Yes, I knew how to speak all […]
Stop Trying to Be Perfect!
Let’s face it. It seems that converting our friends and families to become believers in Christ has gotten tougher and tougher. As ambassadors of Jesus, we are finding that this society we live in doesn’t seem to be very attracted to what we are trying to sell them. If we’re ever going to bring change, […]
Will the Real Gospel Please Stand Up?
As I learn more about God’s grace, something has become disturbing apparent to me about many of today’s churches. It seems that as Christians, we have too often forgotten all about our founder – Jesus! I know that sounds a bit crazy, but I want to present a challenge to you next Sunday when you […]
God Will Never Cut You Off
Religion has taught that if we don’t do the right things as Christians, that we are exposing ourselves to trouble with God. We fear that if we don’t meet certain standards, that God is capable of cutting us off from His blessing, His presence and His favor. What a scary thought! The problem is that […]
The Gospel is Not a Salad Bar
The other day, my husband and I had lunch with another couple at a salad bar restaurant. We ate and talked, talked and ate. Before we knew it, we had been there for more than five hours…it’s a wonder that we didn’t get kicked out of the place! Not only did we do some serious […]
