The city was dark as clouds of dust filled the air. People all around were in a panic. Something was coming. A small RV was parked in the square between four tall buildings and I knew that I needed to get my family out of there. It was getting late and my grandparents hadn't arrived yet. A day earlier, I had told them to meet me here at this very spot so we could leave together, in hopes of avoiding what was to come. But they were taking a long time. Too long. I finally decided I could ...Read Full Post »

SKIP THE COAL AND GIVE THEM THE ROCK
Do you feel like you know that special someone who you want to give a lump of coal for Christmas? You know that person who has wronged you again and again this year. So I guess what we'll do is get the coal, put a cute little bow on it and place it in a spot that our special someone will be sure to find it. This way he or she will know that they made someones naughty list right? Then maybe they'll straighten up because we were bold enou...Read Full Post »

Praised Be Jesus Christ+
Dear Sisters & Brothers In Christ,
Just some sharing with you about a story that I know very well and how it relates to scripture that I read tonight. Tonight at my Tuesday nigh...Read Full Post »
Recently, my thoughts have turned to family and friends more and more. How I hope and pray for a revival within them all! I think when you are eagerly seeking the Lord and strive to be consumed in His love, it opens your eyes to those around you who are lost or have fallen away from God. I look around at the people I love most and part of me is torn thinking some of them...many of them are caught in a life of sin and are not trying to live a righteous life. I sin every day, of course, but...Read Full Post »
So we had a good day. We were surprised to find that a situation we assumed would be a difficult and trying time, turned out to be wonderful and full of the Holy Spirit. However, the opposite was true for another situation and we, Im sorry to say, were left feeling hurt and angry. But God is good...all the time and we were able to refocus on Him and his goodness and after that, the devils attacks became somewhat humorous. It is a wonderful feeling to know the forgiveness of Christ and, even i...Read Full Post »
There has been a great struggle within me and within my marriage for the past three months. So many nights I'd cry and tell God, "I can't do this on my own, Lord. I need you. Please free us from this affliction!" It was very hard...I don't think we've struggled so much in our whole relationship. But this week, God has answered my prayers and heard my cries. He has given me peace and restored my joy. During these past few months, I often wondered "Why, God? Why does our marriage have to be tes...Read Full Post »
God is good! Every day I am reminded of His love for me...for everyone. How amazing it feels to know that God sent His only son to shed his blood so that everyone could share in His kingdom! I give thanks in everything and love God with every part of me because He loved me first. Thank you God!
