Abraham’s Servant: An Old Testament Example

Recently I have been diving into the Old Testament. As I was reading Genesis, I came across a very key character, yet he is often overlooked. In Genesis 24, we see Abraham asking his servant to go out and find a wife for Isaac. The servant makes an oath to Abraham and sets out for […]

Just Scripture

Sometimes Scripture just needs to speak for itself. “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in […]

You Can Be Anybody You Want

I have heard so many times spoken to me or those around me, as a slogan for a motivational speech or a pep talk from a teacher, a parent’s encouragement to their child and a mantra for this generation: You can be anybody you want to be.  Even just reading those words now may make […]

Following God, Even When We Don’t Want To

My whole life I have been trying to follow God’s will. It has always been relatively easy since, from a young age, I have known that God has called me to teach French. In following God’s will, there have been ups and downs, as there usually are, but I finally graduated with a degree in […]

Suffering to Resurrection

“Everybody wants resurrection, but nobody wants suffering!” I read this quote recently in an article I was reading, and it caused me to stop in my tracks and ponder its truth. What a revolutionary quote, especially for our world today! In the Easter season that we just celebrated, we are reminded overwhelmingly of the suffering […]

Tears and Oil

Luke 7:36-50 The Pharisee invited Jesus over for dinner. A sinful woman from town heard He was going to be there, so she came with an alabaster jar of perfume oil. As Jesus spoke to the Pharisee, the woman’s tears wet Jesus feet. She wiped them with her hair, kissed His feet then poured perfumed oil on them. […]

Frozen Blooms

It was going to be beautiful. The Jane Magnolia that sits some 30 feet from my living room window, the window where I daily drink my coffee and study my bible, was covered in buds. With the backdrop of the neighbor’s white picket fence, and the lake beyond, it was going to be stunning and […]

Even If

The Christian band, MercyMe, has a new song out called Even If. Take time today to look this song up and listen to it, TODAY! This song describes a God who is able to remove us from our pain, but even if He chooses for us to endure it for a season, He promises to […]

Ministering to Women

It wasn’t until just recently that I was ministered to as a woman. I had been ministered to as a child, as a teen, and as a college student, but never as a woman. I didn’t realize how badly I needed to be ministered to as a woman until I felt God convicting me to […]

By Faith, Part 2

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”–Hebrews 11:1 My previous post tackled the definition of faith based on this Scripture.  Faith is substance and evidence.  In a ladies’ Bible study I just finished teaching, we spent 6 weeks unpacking faith.  One Bible story we kept referring to […]
