When God Closes Doors

“But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses:forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.” Deut. 17:16 (KJV) My favorite aunt gave me a small wood plaque to hang on the […]

The Plan of the Master Weaver

Our lives are but fine weavings, That God and we prepare, Each life becomes a fabric planned And fashioned in His care. We may not always see just how The weaving intertwine, But we must trust the Master’s hand And follow His design. For He can view the pattern From the upper side, While we […]

Do Men and Women Sin Differently?

In the latest Barna study, the data was put forward that for the most part, men and women admit to being tempted by the same things at about the same level.  There are a few temptations that seem to affect men and women differently.  On the men list  Pornography (28% versus women 8%)  On  the […]

The Top Lessons GOD Taught Me in 2012

God is the greatest teacher in the universe.  He began when He walked with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.  I can image He shared with them what He wanted them to know about Himself along with how He wanted them to behavior while living in the garden.  The most painful and consequential lesson […]

What do we do with Sin?

September 19, 2012 What do we do with sin?  For too long this question has been asked only by theologians and scholars as they “pontificate” over spiritual things.  But the people who should be asking this question are those who are currently stewards of God’s grace, desiring that God’s “kingdom will come”—to our nation, to […]

Rising Above Sin: The Grace Factor Multiples

Our September 19th, we published a WordBytes entitled, “What Do We Do with Sin?”  Our intent was to show the relationship between our nation’s current social/economic dilemma and “sin.” In response, our guest writer, Bethany Spilde offers encouraging options to address the “elephant in the room”–SIN.  ENJOY!

What’s Your Role on the Stage of Life?

It’s been said that the “whole world is a stage and everyone plays a part.” Within my immediate family, I am the heroine playing many different roles–wife, mother, daughter, sister.   Some roles I “reheased for”; for the role of wife, there were several callbacks and a few rejections.  The other roles, I inherited on the […]

Examine Yourself

This morning I had the opportunity to listen to one of my favorite Christian radio shows. The show is formatted to resemble a Bible study session, where there is an open discussion of a particular Bible passage, character, or faith principle.   Before closing, one of the study member said something that really resonated with […]

Faith that Perseveres: THE APPLICATION

 Read Hebrews 11.  All the Faith Hall of Famers “died in faith not having received “the promises” but having seen them afar off were and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth (Heb. 11:13).  The word “promises” is a metonymy for “the things promised.” […]

What is Your Eternal Net Worth?

One of my favorite Bible teachers and minister, Alstair Begg, recently chastised us for being more concerned with our IRAs (Individual Retirement Accounts) than our IEAs (Individual Eternity Accounts).  That brought to mind a WordBytes teaching I had written a few years ago.  It still has relevancy for those who have “an ear to hear.”  […]
