Introducing myself, my writing team, and our blog
Hi everyone,

Thank you very much for letting me be part of your forum!

I've been writing for years. However, I only recently discovered that writing as a ministry was my primary gifting and calling.

I lead a team of Christian writers at my church. Lately, we are producing material aimed at other Christian writers for our blog:

Feel free to check us out! I look forward to meeting others and being part of the community!

Thanks again!

The Lord is strong. He who was, is, and will forever be, has great strength. We think of the Lord's strength in physical terms, though He is stronger even than we can imagine. He is strong not simply in the physical sense, but He is also strong of character and strong in mind. Where we are weak and sinful creatures, He is perfect and extends His strength to His followers. When we rely on the strength of God, we are on a firm foundation and cannot be shaken. When we pray to God for strength, He answers us and will not allow us to be overtaken by the darkness. Though the powers...

Jesus sacrifice was worth it!
While standing at my altar, I was thinking how easy it is to forget…

I have stewed over the fact that my life and body have been sacrificed too many times, even for good things. For instance, I literally gave up space inside my body three times to allow three other little bodies to grow there. Welcomed, but still, a sacrifice.

Through all my days I will have faith in the Lord. He who made the Heavens and the Earth will comfort and guide me. Though I walk with many wearies and toil for countless days, He is beside me while I toil, and He holds my hand to comfort my weary soul. When I struggle, my Lord lifts me up. When I weep, He wipes away my tears. For God loves me always, and He never turns away from His children. God is not like man. Man can turn away, and man can follow another path. But God has chosen His path from the beginning of time and until now. His path is constant as His love is constant....

Sand in a Blogger’s Shoes
Posted by justhappeneduponthis

I am sitting here at the ocean’s shoreline. Mid-day sun warm over my head and shoulders Surf coming in and out in leisurely fashion. This time last year I was in a real fix because of my own stubbornness and unbelief. Yesterday I was in trouble again for standing up for righteousness’ sake in the face of a godless pack. No allies.

With no other choices, I dedicated last night to seemingly desperate prayer. I was told to come down here today and contemplate the horizon and the expansive view. I have put these thoughts...

Desperation can often lead to individuals regretting choices in life. Items of that nature include degrees that are not fully utilized, mistakes that you wish you could rectify, and relationships that have ended incredibly badly. Bad experiences can often lead to times of despair, but if you can rekindle a flame that once burned as brightly and as radiant as the sun they can lead to a more determined mindset, renewed relationships, and open new pathways for professional and personal success.

Sometimes to find true success you need to learn from the past and find a way to utilize failures...

Sometimes I find myself thinking about God as if He were the Wizard of Oz.  And me, Dorothy, walking the Yellow Brick Road desperately trying to get to Him; planning ahead of time what I am going to ask of Him when I finally make it into His presence; hoping I will find favor in His sight.   Taking my friends along with me, assuring them He is what they need, but all along feeling unsure of my own status with the Mighty One.  Often feeling powerless and scared of the witch that swoops down, or the monkeys that creep up trying to destroy...

How I Speak To God
My Blog

Prayer, a powerful tool in connecting with God. He desires to hear from us. He wants to know our hearts. Hearing from us helps him know how we feel, where we are at, the struggles we are facing. Prayer is our love language to God. His love language to us is his word. They work hand in hand. If we are not allowing him to talk with us, how can we effectively talk with him. The word is our tool to get us through each day. It also helps us in our prayer times as we can...

What do you think God's power is? God's power can not be used for wrong. If you have God's strength and power, which indeed belongs to God but is given you by grace, try using it for selfish results, and see for yourselves how it will not work.

God's identity is in His children who reflect the example of His Son! You do not know God by big sermons, but by seeing how a genuine Christian lives. Do you KNOW why God created you? Because He loves you. And if He loves you it means, He wants you to love Him.

It is only when we love God that we get the necessary grace to love others,...

She said I talk way too much about God. She says I'm taking way too much time away from her and the children to read my bible, attend church and have fellowship with the brethren. She complained that I'm witnessing Jesus too much to friends and relatives and that I was embarrassing her and myself. That I'm bringing shame upon me and my family because God just "isn't her thing!"
She claimed that I was going crazy and that this had gone far enough. That I was jeopardizing my job to talk about the Lord at work because, quite frankly, people just don't want to hear it! She accused me...

This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. – Matthew 6:9
When I became a new believer in Jesus Christ, I spent alot of time considering prayer, it was something that I knew I could just lift up my heart to the Lord and he would hear me. But it was not long after I was deluged with books on prayer by modern authors, there were so many books on prayer it seemed that believers were failing to pray to God. I remember one time my mind was so distracted...

I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! – Genesis 45:4

Many of us have heard the dramatic story of Joseph in the book of Genesis. This young man gets abused and sold into slavery by his jealous brothers. He suffers greatly in prison and in other circumstances. Finally in an amazing turn of events, God brings him to a great place of prominence where he is one of the most powerful people in the known world. Many of us have had terrible things done to us in this...

Jesus was 'Cool'. With His faith nothing bothered Him. The Father had His back and He knew it. God is on our side as well. Trust and see what He can do. As your faith be so be it done unto you.

"He 'Rocks' My World"

The Rock of my life 'rocks' my life.
He keeps my world in its place.
My days with Him are free of strife.
In my heart He has a sacred space.

We are on a rock orbiting the sun.

I talked to some parents last week.  I always talk to the parents at the school I’m currently speaking in to give them an overview, a chance to ask questions and some tips on how to get their youngsters through middle school and high school unscathed.

And I always end by showing them a clip of my daughter telling her story at that retreat 5 years ago.  To encourage them.  Because she went to the school where their children are now enrolled. Thought it might encourage some of you, too:

Luke said Jesus’s sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.  Whenever I read that I think of my grandma.  She was wonderful.  She was kind and fun-loving and smart.  I admired her because she did not gossip.  She had better things to do.  She was adventurous and physically and mentally fit well into old age.  She took a flying lesson on her eightieth birthday because it was something she had always wanted to try and she actually flew a plane.  She made her last visit back to her home state when she was in her nineties.  I had the privilege...

Some Thoughts from A Trip to Phuket
The Christian, The Prostitute and The Destitute

Billowing burqas and bustling bazaars are the curtains drawing in a great circus of colour. The daily grind of Phuket clothes a naked hospitality - a raw devotion - in the garb of poverty, promiscuity and crime. And when you're stuck in an endless musical of "tuk tuk" and "massage" it becomes way too easy to tune out and begin to identify people by the...

Remembering we Christians are all "scrumbly" children clothed in the righteousness of Chist.
Recently I had the privilege to teach worship dance to some little, and some ‘tween’ girls at our Worship Arts Camp at church.  Every week the girls were excited as I gave each one a long white satin circle skirt to wear during practice.  It is a sight to see when the girls don their skirts.  Not one of them can sit or stand still.  The entire room is filled with twirling dancers in pretty long white skirts, paired with a variety of different tee shirts.  Nothing can compare, however, to the special times they get to wear the ~white dance dresses~. ...

Labor & Delivery….the simplest of words, yet so very complex. Labor is intense. Hard-core and usually full of pain. When most people think of labor they think of the  labor of bearing a child. The horror stories that women hear of the pain & pressure endured to deliver a child. Then comes the breathtaking moment of the delivery. The silence. When the intense hard-core pain subsides and you anxiously await the subtle scream of a child.

Is it not, that we go through the labor of life?...

Lessons In Apologetics #2: Rationalism & Fideism
The next epistemological methodology is rationalism. Of rationalism, Geisler writes, "Rationalism is characterized by its stress on the innate a priori ability of human reason to know truth. Basically, rationalists hold that what is knowable or demonstrable by human reason is true (29)." To the rationalist, the mind takes precedence over experience and the information acquired through the senses as a foundation for truth and knowledge.

In a rationalist methodology, there exists in the mind a number of innate ideas or principles that allow the individual to arrive at an understanding...

For anyone pursuing a degree in Apologetics that was given a dollar for every time they were asked "What is that, learning how to say you are sorry" upon answering the question of what it is that they study so many times, many would have financed a considerable portion of their academic pursuits. Unfortunately, such ignorance as to what exactly this theological discipline entails symbolizes the neglect the defense of the faith has fallen into in the contemporary church and is one of the reasons that everywhere the believer and student of religion turns today they find Christianity losing considerable...

Recently Stan and I decided that we needed to be more health conscious in our eating and made a decision to get started.  Since I am the main "cook" in our home (it was in our wedding vows), I knew that I would be the one responsible to make a healthy menu for us.  I did some looking around on the internet for possible healthy menus and came up with a list of recipes ,and then spent Sunday afternoon "food shopping" (as my friend Michele calls it) at three different grocery stores buying the items...

The fear of the Lord is a blessing-giver characteristic in life. Many do not fear God and live as they want. This is the condition of many, many Christians today. They may have bibles with them, but never read it. They may have a church membership but do not attend it regularly. They have various reasons to pray, but never...

Commitment. A word that holds with it much meaning. There are different levels of commitment, yet all of us make commitments in our lives. We are committed to family, work, spouse,finances,relationships,and goals that we set to achieve.
How are we when we fall short in these commitments. What does that look like for you. What do you battle in your heart when you fail in these areas. There is struggle. We get angry with ourselves, we beat ourselves up, sometimes we pull away from each other and hide as we feel ashamed.
In all these areas we think about these more that we think...

Time continues to march forward, and with each new day it is a blessing from God. In our minds we know we are not promised a new day. Yet, how often do we get up start our day and even go the whole day without thanking God for the breath he gives us, the air we breath, the life he provides. Are we too busy to remember to put God in the equation. As a society we get too busy and do not leave room for God or the spirit. These type of days when I allow them to happen in my own life, brings forth challenge and levels of despair. He desires for us to look to him and thank him for each blessing...
