Pray Without Ceasing

The first Thursday in May has been designated as the National Day of Prayer.  While millions are asked to unite in prayer on that one day, Christians are admonished to pray continuously…to pray without ceasing.  (1 Thess. 5:17)  What exactly does that mean and how do you do it?  To me, praying without ceasing is […]

Experiencing the Presence of God

After experiencing the presence of the Lord, it is was hard for the two on the road to Emmaus to return to “business as usual.” (Luke 24:13-32) Christ’s words burn in  their hearts.  They had begun their journey burdened, but ended it with renewed faith–ready to witness for their risen Savior.   In His presence, Peter, […]

Why Do You Follow Christ?

Why do you follow Christ?  Why did you choose HIM for your savior?  That was the issue behind Jesus’ statement to the crowds that pursued Him after His miracle of feeding five thousand adults.  Jesus had gained a huge following as a result of His miracles, wonders and signs. (John 6:22)  After this miracle, they […]

WEIGHT TRAINING 4 CHRISTIANS

This morning I had tea with my girlfriend, Kim.  She is my prayer intercessor and sister in Christ. As part of our commitment to the Lord, we have agreed to meet the last Friday of every month for spiritual support and accountability.  Today as we talked, she mentioned a phrase that God had dropped in […]

Where did Zoe and Phos go?

John 1:4 states, “In Him was life and His life was the light of men.”  Life in Greek is “zoe” and it means “soul and spirit.”  The soul is where our spiritual DNA resides.  For we were made in the  image of God.  It provides  our unique (and sometimes quirky) personality.  It consists of our […]

Comfort Zone

A friend recently sent me the YouTube of Marvin Sapp singing a song entitled “Comfort Zone.” Your comfort zone is where your ability or capacity is equal to the circumstance you may be facing.  It is a place where we feel secure, safe, and in control.   However, when we are asked to do something we […]

What’s Luck Got to Do with It?

This past weekend my husband and I had dinner with friends we hadn’t seen in a while. We learned that our friend, Sam (name changed to protect the innocent) had experienced a massive heart attack.  We listened intently as he and his wife described the event. “We were so fortunate that the paramedics were close […]

An Eye on Eternity

When was the last time you thought about eternity?  Better yet, do you even believe in eternity?  If you do not believe in “life after death”, you may be extremely depressed with the thought of someday leaving behind your prize possessions (your favorite stuff) and relationships (your favorite people).  Even for those of us who do believe in eternity, […]

View From the End of the Rope

Popular adage:  “When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot in it?” My view of the adage:  “When you come to the end of your rope,  ask yourself how you got there?” In 2010, I was determined to move our ministry forward in reaching its teaching goals.  My perception was that […]

Opportunity Does More Than Knock

Yesterday opportunity knocked on my door.  I had been looking for someone to help with my website.  For literally years I prayed that God would send the support I needed.  Help almost came several times, but I was always left to manage “on my own” (or so I thought). Yesterday God presented an opportunity greater […]
