Settling for Second

As we venture through Holy Week and remember the ‘reason for the season’ and all of Christ’s sufferings for us, it just makes sense to take a look at the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert. There are many aspects of Jesus’ journey that we could ponder, but for me the one that hits […]

What Temps You?

I’ve been reading Sharon Jaynes’ two-part devotion on “I’d be happy if…” over the past week, so it was no surprise when I looked at today’s topic on the GEM calendar about temptation.  God is so cool that way!

The Enemy

Scary movies are not for me.  Monsters, demons and walking dead people frighten me, cause my heart to race and make me nervous…and I KNOW they are just actors.  As a kid, I used to love watching all of the scariest movies available.  But today, I am conscious of the real evil that lurks in […]
