Why do Christians Bury their Wounded?

February 28, 2009

  This question has puzzled me for years in ministry.  Why do good christian people turn their back on their brothers and sisters who are hurting and wounded?  Why do they judge someone who has stumbled or backslid?  Why do they judge others more harshly than  they would want others to judge them and 10 […]

God Answers Prayers!

February 27, 2009

  Some people question whether or not God answers prayers.  I have heard it said that God gives three answers in prayers:  Yes, No and Wait.  God I hate the “wait” answer.  I would prefer to get the “NO” answer smacked upside my head than the “WAIT” answer.  I have no patience for waiting – […]

Can Christians Have Tattoos?

February 26, 2009

  I love a good argument. Perhaps that is because I am Italian and we love to animate our talking with our hands.  Or perhaps it is just that I always think I am right.  This topic seems to drive Christians nuts.  Almost every Christian I have discussed this with (with the exception of those […]

Motorcycle Dryer for Bikers

February 21, 2009

  Ok had to plug this product. The best motorcycle dryer for all bikes.  Nothing gets the water off faster.  I use this with some of that wash/wax concentrate with warm water.  Rinse it off and blast the water off with the Air Shammy Motorcycle Dryer.  No need for towel drying!  Hey and the people that […]

Can’t Wait for Spring

February 21, 2009

  I am so tired of the snow, rain, and ice. Coming from California to Kentucky has been a lesson in patience. I want the sun!  If patience is a fruit of the Spirit, then God is certainly working on me with this one.  I miss riding, I miss fishing, I miss sleeveless shirts.  Besides, […]

I love the way the Israelites has different names for God such as: Yahweh Yireh (The Lord will provide) Yahweh Nissi (The Lord is my Banner) Yahweh Shalom (The Lord is Peace) El Roi (God who sees) Yahweh Tsidkenu (The Lord is Our Righteousness) Their names showed the character of God in His actions with […]

Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4 NASB) God knows me so very well. Before there is a word on my lips, He knows them. He knows my thoughts, my actions and my motives. He loved me at my worst condition and loves me exactly […]

God works with me in strange ways. Maybe that’s why I am so strange. I see times in my life where everything pointed to learning grace. These days are spent learning about love. So here is another post on love….. Love is a verb. It lives, it breathes, it moves. There is no such thing […]

I know my life has not been easy. Heck, I do not wish my life on anyone. The tears I have shed must fill kegs up in heaven – God gave up on bottles with me. The pain I have suffered would kill most men. Throw on the struggles, disappointments and broken hearts and you […]

A wonderful friend of mine sent this to me this week. It spoke volumes to my life – my past, my hurts, my scars, my tears. I want to share it with you. LET IT GO By T. D. Jakes There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell […]

Recently, a good friend of mine told me a story about taking her son, Zach, to church. Zac is your typical young adult, early 20’s with his own fashion sense. (Sounds like me, except add 25 years). I have said before, that “church” today would hold very little for me if I weren’t a follower […]

This blog is dedicated to all those warrior rebels for Jesus who have endured the valleys of their spiritual life so as to better enjoy the mountaintop experience with God. When I review my spiritual life, I see myself in valleys mostly. It is here that God has humbled me, taught me, and nurtured me. […]

This blog was inspired and is co-written by a good friend of mine whom I simply adore as a person, as a woman, and as a fellow rebel for Jesus. There are two distinct views here – how the bride sees herself (she wrote this) and how her future groom sees her (my input). HOW […]

“But when you present the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? And when you present the lame and sick, is it not evil?” Malachi 1:8 NASB In this book, the priests were giving God the scraps, the rejects and keeping the best, the first fruits, for themselves. Don’t we do that today? We make […]

Rebels come from all walks of life. Some are bikers, some are bankers, teachers, single moms, artists, ex-addicts and even ex-nice guys. Rebels believe that things need to change. Change that begins with one person saying there has to be a better way. And then pressing forward to blaze that new path. Rebels for Jesus […]
