Encourage Each Other

One of my dearest friends has been through the wringer over the past month and it’s been absolutely heartbreaking to watch.  The poor thing has had problem after problem and she just can’t seem to catch a break (insert sad face and hear my boo’s)! Needless to say, it was not by ‘coincidence’ that I […]

Giving it up to God

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday.  Of course, this means that the march towards Easter is under way and the ‘reason for the season’ is weighing heavy on the hearts and minds of Christians everywhere. Lent has officially begun and its traditional purpose is to prepare believers through prayer, repentance, change and sacrifice. Sounds kinda like a […]

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! Sharon, a member of the Girlfriends in God daily blog team, wrote about Eve listening to […]

The Woman at the Well

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”  John 4:13-14 I love that story of the woman at the well!  It perfectly […]

What is Sin?

Now that everyone knows about my Sinners’ Anonymous membership card, I thought it would be a good idea to discuss what sin really is so that we know if we are a current member or not! Pretty sure my card is snuggled comfortably next to my drivers’ license since I use it often.  Sigh. According […]

Sinners’ Anonymous

Everyone has heard of Alcoholics’ Anonymous, but how many of us have the member card for Sinners’ Anonymous?  I would dare say that most of us have it hidden between two rarely used credit cards in the last spot of our wallet. All of us have one, but we sure don’t like to admit it. […]

Skeletons

Halloween seems like a perfect time to pull out the skeletons from the closet, dust them off and go bury them in the backyard where they belong…with lots of prayers that Rover won’t go dig them out and prance around the neighborhood with them!!  Yikes! That would SO be my luck!  Thank God I don’t […]

The Prayer Problem

Lately, my prayer life has stunk it up to kingdom come.  For some reason, I have been going through the motions of reading scriptures and devotionals, but I’ve barely spoken a word to God in what seems like forever. Sure, I’ve said mealtime and bedtime prayers with my boys, but my personal time with God […]

Here We Go…Again

How is it that I can desire something SO bad, but NOT follow through?  AND why is it easier to stand still or continue down the wrong path instead of changing a habit or jumping off the bandwagon? CRIMENY!!! Sometimes it feels like the more I desire to do God’s Will, the more the devil […]

Christmas in July

Having worked for an online retail store many moons ago, I still remember Christmas in July.  As with any retailer, we had to have our Christmas collection selected, ordered and the catalog had to be complete in the beginning of every summer. Do you know how hard it is to get into Christmas decorations when […]
