Liebster Blog Awards

By | September 8th, 2017|Practical Christian Living|1 Comment

The Liebster Award started around 2011 as a way for bloggers to recognize and encourage new bloggers in the blogging community. It works similar to a chain mail. A nominee can accept the word and continue the chair; or, decline the nomination and stop it continuing. Honestly, I'm all for keeping this chain going. [...]

Faithful over “small” things today

By | August 15th, 2017|Faith, Practical Christian Living, Revelations and Encounters|12 Comments

Step upon step I climbed up the narrow spiraled staircase leading to the Oxford Tower. I didn't know what I would see.  All I knew was the history I had just learned from the tour guide about Oxford Palace and its tower. With each step, I didn't know how close I was to the top. I wondered [...]

What motivates your prayer life?

By | August 3rd, 2017|Practical Christian Living, Prayer, Revelations and Encounters, Spiritual Growth|4 Comments

I hadn't thought of what motivates my prayer life until I heard a sermon by Dawna De Silva called Praying from Power. I listened, riveted to my chair, taking in every word as though I was hearing for the first time. Each word carried weight, clarity, and authority. It demanded my full attention and required [...]

A million miles away? God is in You!

By | July 18th, 2017|Revelations and Encounters|9 Comments

God, where are you? This question has often rung through my mind as loud as the gong of a steeple bell. Loneliness and abandonment threaten to close in on me and the lie that God is distant becomes a lot more real than it should. That’s the thing about faith. It requires you to believe [...]

Letting God Love Me In My Messy Life

By | July 11th, 2017|Revelations and Encounters|0 Comments

The conversation took a turn again that night to a time in our lives I wish I could re-do. It was a time laced with mess, mistakes, and heartache. I know my side and heart - one with good intentions motivated by fear and negatively distorted by outside influence. It was a time which brought [...]

Marriage God’s Way – A Book Review

By | June 26th, 2017|Practical Christian Living, Relationships|2 Comments

Marriage God's Way. What a great title for a book! Quite apt too in a society that is rife with divorce and failed relationships. Marriage on a good day comes with its challenges and memorable moments but making it a success takes effort, commitment and a lot of sacrificial love. Today, we are constantly fighting [...]

I’m Stuck in a Rut until God shows up

By | June 19th, 2017|Revelations and Encounters|15 Comments

I'm stuck in a rut again. The words "I'm stuck" continue to whirl around in my head as fast as a merry-go-round leading me nowhere. What do I write? What do I say? Do I have a message? In the process, I realize maybe I am trying to hard. Trying too hard to write something [...]

How to stop comparing yourself with others

By | June 6th, 2017|Practical Christian Living, Spiritual Growth|9 Comments

How to stop comparing yourself with others? Yea, that answer seems to be more slippery than a wet bar of soap. One moment, we've got it, we stop comparing ourselves to others and work on valuing the beauty of who we are. Before we know it, we are doing it again - comparing. Whenever I [...]

Don’t be perfect, be redeemed

By | May 30th, 2017|Revelations and Encounters|12 Comments

Don't be perfect, be redeemed? This has been a word that Jesus has been gently massaging into my spirit. It's a pulling out of misconceptions and false views of myself and others. It requires that I let go of ideals and take a deeper look at what perfect really means. Perfect. A state of being [...]

Living by faith and grace – Sarah’s Story

By | May 23rd, 2017|Bible Study|0 Comments

Living by faith and grace seems to be the mantra of today's Grace movement and church culture. By no means is this wrong. In fact, I think its something God has always wanted us to live in. Interestingly, faith and grace are beautifully woven throughout the entire Bible. Faith and grace are not reserved for [...]

Waiting for Breakthrough – Elizabeth’s Story

By | May 9th, 2017|Bible Study|5 Comments

For many of us waiting for breakthrough is hard. Our hearts are on the line. We are trusting God with everything we have and holding on in anticipation for the answers we have been longing for. Yet, days turn into years and our breakthrough hasn't yet come. In this place, hope begins to fade and [...]
