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 […]

I am Back!!!

October 1, 2008

Wow, it has been a long time since I wrote.  So much has happened in the past year.  As I last wrote, I met a wonderful woman on Christian Cafe.  After giving up on dating due to some less-than-wonderful experiences, God stepped in and gave me Tina.  And in the same way, He gave me […]

SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!!

November 29, 2007

I am writing this blog with incredible joy and peace in my heart.  After years of prayer, absolute non-patience, and pain – and only after I gave up – God gave me an incredible gift – my heart’s desire. So today: I want to shout it from the rooftops!! I want to declare it to […]

THE LORD OF THE IMPOSSIBLE

October 4, 2007

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 […]

MY HEART’S DESIRE

October 3, 2007

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 […]

LOVE THAT PURSUES

October 1, 2007

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 […]

IN GOD ALONE I TRUST

September 24, 2007

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 […]

LET IT GO!

September 22, 2007

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 […]

CHECK YES OR NO

September 18, 2007

I love songwriters. And singers who can bring those words to life. George Strait is one of my favorites – talented yet appearing so humble. Sometimes life is a box that you have to enter a check mark in. Certainly, love is like that expressed in this chorus: “Do you love me, do you wanna […]

YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR HAT ON

September 18, 2007

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 […]

THE VALLEY OF THE REBELS

September 17, 2007

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. […]

THE BRIDE OF CHRIST

September 14, 2007

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 […]

GIVE GOD YOUR BEST

July 27, 2007

“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 […]

THE REBEL’S CREED

July 25, 2007

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 […]

ADVENTURES WITH JESUS

July 24, 2007

Yeah, what a strange title. But I cannot think of anything more descriptive of the life with Jesus. The Jesus of the Bible is so different than the Jesus being preached today on the pulpits. In fact, some preachers have forgotten who Jesus is. Their words are all about you feeling good about yourself. Huh? […]
