Give Thanks Always

Give Thanks Always

“Giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…” -Ephesians 5:20 NKJV This month is usually used to reflect on things we have been blessed with.  Each morning, we wake up with the desire to give thanks. To thank the Lord for all He has blessed […]

Dream

Dream

Dreams. Sometimes life has dealt harshly with us and our desire to dream fades. Perhaps we’ve suffered a harsh rejection and letting go of dreams has kept the ache from worsening. One day, we wake up and realize we’ve stopped hoping that good things will come to pass. Oh, we still believe in God and […]

Be Content

Be Content

“Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” I have a tiny problem. Maybe you have it to. It’s called the case of the wants. Your parents may have huffed and sighed when they diagnosed you because every TV commercial that came […]

Hope

Hope

When “life” happens, it’s not always a good thing. And considering the times we live in, it seems to be steeped in sin and its consequences. Shootings. Deaths. Illnesses. Diseases. Natural Disasters. It’s enough to way us down, to pilfer away all of our hope. When our world looks the way it does, what is […]

I Will Rejoice

I Will Rejoice

“This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” – Psalm 118:24 KJV I’ve heard this Scripture hundreds of times. I’ve repeated it to myself many times to remember I need to be thankful for each day. But lately I’ve been pausing and reflecting on “rejoice.” I will rejoice. I […]

Thy Will Be Done

Thy Will Be Done

As we walk the path of faith, we discover that life has its ups and downs. An easy life is not a promise for anyone on this earth, but an abundant one is promised for the believer. “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that […]

Searching for Perfect Peace

Searching for Perfect Peace

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” – John 14:27 KJV I’ve entered a season of unrest. Unfortunately, I can’t blame the unrest on one single thing. No, my mind and […]

Behind the Sin

Behind the Sin

Jesus came to save. To restore His people to the Creator. And before He returned to heaven to prepare a way for us, He told His disciples to reach people. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them […]

Be Love: My 2018 Phrase

Happy New Year! I always enjoy getting to write the first post of the New Year for Putting on the New. It allows me to share my phrase for the year, which this year is Be Love.

Patience, Experience, Hope

Patience, Experience, Hope

“And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” – Romans 5:3-5 KJV Must of us do not […]

Hunger Warning Signs

Hunger Warning Signs

Our body is a well run machine. Like late models, it has a built in warning system, waiting to alert us to possible trouble. If we are tuned into our body, we know when something is not quite right. In fact, hunger works in just the same way. We may become sluggish. Get a headache. […]

Press

Press

There are times when our life resembles a battlefield. Utter chaos seems to rein around us. Sickness prevails. Finances collapse. Relationships are collapsing. In the midst of it, we’re left standing there with a decision to make. Do we wilt or do we press forward? “I press toward the mark for the prize of the […]

Our Purpose in Life

Our Purpose in Life

There comes a point in every person’s life when we wonder what our purpose in life is. Surely our life isn’t on accident. Surely, we’re here for some reason. There must be some earth shattering, cosmic purpose for our lives other than wandering around aimlessly. Right? Now, I don’t want to make light of things. […]

A Glimpse of Heaven

A Glimpse of Heaven

A few days ago, I had the pleasure of going to the Outcry Tour. It’s a wonderful concert featuring, Elevation Worship, Lauren Daigle, Jesus Culture, and even a couple of pastors. I’ve been to this concert before, but this time, I noticed something. For some reason, I paid attention to all the people standing in […]

In Need of Rest

In Need of Rest

There comes a time in our life when we run out of steam. We started the race full of energy. We had our fill of God, our conviction that we were on the right path. And then we hit obstacle, after obstacle, after obstacle. The first one wasn’t so bad. We were expecting it. The […]

Exclusivity

Exclusivity

Friends, there’s been something on my heart these past few weeks. It’s something that I hear a lot from non-believers and even from some believers. It’s exclusivity.

To Esteem

To Esteem

I’ve been watching other people’s behavior for a while now. As a writer, I think it’s part of my writer brain searching for characteristics to give my characters or the desire for story ideas. What I’ve seen breaks my heart. Some people are walking around like they are better than “them.” You know, the person(s) who […]

My 2017 Word: Connect

My 2017 Word: Connect

It’s that time of year again. Time to decide how you want the new year to be. How you want to be in the new year. It’s a time for contemplation and reflection. For me, it’s a time to choose a word to focus on. It’s a word I want to aspire to. A word that will […]
