Embracing the Path

Jesus taught that we enter the Kingdom of God through much tribulation, so the portal to the kingdom of God is suffering and hardship. Upon hearing this, the fleshly nature goes right into survival mode and starts searching for ways to disqualify the statement. However, someone with a great deal more knowledge, wisdom,...Hold on, correction...He... Continue Reading →

Only God Is Good

The truth that only God is good does not disqualify the goodness we could have inside as some purport. The truth that God is good defines the source of all goodness. We don't have to be bread in order to share bread with someone who is hungry, we just need to have bread. We don't... Continue Reading →

Are You Watching

What does it mean to watch as the Lord commands in Matthew 24:42? "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come." We are cautioned to watch so that the coming of the Lord does not take us as a thief in the night. It says in scripture that no man knows... Continue Reading →

Love me…Love me not

Have you ever picked petals from a flower and did the "love me-love me not" silly ritual. Though that is a silly game played as children it is a reflection of an actual question we carry in our hearts that requires serious attention.

The Seeds of Joy

The harvest is always so much more abundant than the seeds sown. It takes one peach seed to grow a peach tree but after the tree comes forth think about how many sweet peaches will be enjoyed.  This relationship is not coincidental or happenstance but the whole process of sowing and reaping is a law...

Rainy Days

I wait for you at the well of my love but you will not come and drink. I call for you to come and you seem bothered by the invitation. I think maybe the drawing of the bucket is too much, so I make the well to run over. Yet you still will not come.... Continue Reading →

Turning Up The Heat

The assaults on our heart are pretty relentless. When we are not being attacked from the outside, we still have to contend with the occasional utterances of our own wounded heart, questioning our well-being. The wounded heart can be a fifth column, an enemy within. This is why God is creating in us a new... Continue Reading →
