Something New

Isaiah 43:19(NLT) 19 For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Over the last two years I have been praying that the Lord would use me to help other women […]

Is anyone besides me experiencing information overload?

Ironically, my little devotion for today was titled, “When You Are So Tired”.  I could not help but smile when I recognized God’s hand in this particular devotion crossing my path on one of my most exhausting days.  I am not even kidding…I had to skip church tonight, draw the line, and Go. To. Bed!  […]

I am currently teaching a women’s Bible study on Sunday nights, and as I was studying this past week, something I knew so well stopped me in my tracks.  I was pouring over Scripture and history, and the fact that the New Testament writers viewed Christ’s return as imminent settled into my heart.  This belief […]

We are living in a culture where sin is accepted and even legalized, but we are not the first people who have been surrounded by darkness.  Every civilization has endured the same struggles.  From the Old Testament, to the early church, to America today, there is no new sin.  Yet, when I log in to […]
