Growing in Faith

How do you handle it?

One of my favorite sayings is with much distance comes much resistance. Basically, it means to me that in separating ourselves from tempting things, the distance builds a strong resistance to the source of the temptation. One thing I am finding in this theory is that distance from your temptation can’t be fueled by fear. In…

Let Him Who Boasts…

(article reprinted by permission – TJ Calcara, Author) I spent some time this morning reading the Bible, in particular 1 Corinthians, chapters one and two.  At the risk of seeming irreverent, the main theme of these two chapters is foolishness.  From 1 Corinthians 1:18 through the end of chapter two, the word “foolish”…

Is Your Youth Group a Safe Place?

We always told our kids in our youth group that they could count on our youth group to be a safe place; a place where they would never have to worry about being bullied and a place where they could share their thoughts and ideas, hopes, dreams and doubts without fear of being judged.   Unkind words or deeds much less any other form of bullying…

What my cat never learned

I was trying to train my cat once. He never got it right. Each time I did sit ups in the middle of the living room he would try to claw my arm flesh off. Evidently I was crowding in on his run-of-the-entire-house-territory. Even 30 minutes on 3 days a week was a great bother to him. I tried to teach him to obey me, but he wasn’t interested.…

Rejoice when we are persecuted?

Jesus said to rejoice when we’re persecuted. Matthew 5:11-12 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” It’s…

Rest assured, you are heard

I was helping my sweet friend with her dishes. I was telling her a few things that I had been praying through and some answers where I felt God’s leading. She was quiet, patient, and methodical with her hands while I shared. She heard my heart. She listened. She heard. Ask any woman. When we have a conversation with you, we just…

If my rose bushes could talk

I am giggling on the inside about the title of this blog. Of course, rose bushes can’t talk. But if they could, I wonder what they would have said the other day when I was pruning my two Knockout rose bushes. You may remember the day beauty came back into my life in the midst of a mess. I was trimming some dead buds off of the tips of the…

The heat of the desert

We all have specific seasons that we journey through. There are times you feel the heat of a desert. Have you ever felt that way? From my prayer journal… “I yearn for your answers God. You know my prayers, my hopes, dreams and desires. I long for Your promises to be complete. Sometimes the waiting period seems unbearable.…

Forever promises

When thinking about adventures in faith, taking next steps without clear direction or guidance seems risky. Am I the only one who likes to have God’s plan marked out in sharpie on a triplicate hard copy for all parties involved? Humm…I thought so. There are no guarantees of a neat tidy journey wrapped up with pink bows and rainbows.…

2 Corinthians 8:9 – A Snapshot of Stewardship

I have heard that the Bible has more to say about money than about any other topic.  I find that interesting.  I ran across this video this morning that really has some good nuggets in it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqPvDEC2TFI I have found it to be true that I can’t outgive God, no matter how hard I try.  It’s…
