Dear Sisters, We are all called to fight
The women of God are being attacked by the enemy, and very often they don't even realize it. I see it more and more as Christian women become more and more enamored with the things of this world... #ArmorofGod #ChristianLife #Spiritualwarfare
Whose Armor Are You Wearing?
My own armor does nothing for me except make provision for my flesh. We can't be affective soldiers if we are wearing faulty armor. The armor we wear must be the best. It must be God's armor. He provides for us everything we need. But we have to be willing... #ArmorofGod #ChristianLife #Godliness
A broken Christmas
The cares of this world overwhelm us as the weight of two thousand Christmases past settles on our shoulders. We see the brokenness all around us and we wonder how much longer God will leave the world this way. We thought things would be different by now. We... #Brokenness #ChristianLife #Christmas
Why our entertainment choices matter
When I'm consuming a steady diet of the worlds entertainment, my mind not stayed on Christ. It's the spiritual equivalent of eating cake for every meal. It might seem good at the time, but it leaves you feeling sluggish and sick. Sure, I might be having... #ChristianLife #Discouragment #Godliness
How a princess prepares for spiritual warfare
God's warrior princesses are supposed to be different. They are set apart and called to higher purpose. When a daughter of The King of kings is dressed for battle she will look very different than what the world expects. #ArmorofGod #ChristianLife #Spiritualwarfare
When the story is hard to tell
So far I haven't used this space share many details about my family's struggles over the past three years. We tend to be very private people, my husband most of all. The stories of my life are not mine only. They also belong to the people I share my life with. In... #Change #ChristianLife #Comfort
4 ways prosperity preaching stunts christian growth
God promised to meet our needs, but the gap between what we think we need, and what we actually need is wide enough to hold the contents of a small galaxy. When we let ourselves get drawn in by the flowery words and overly white smiles, we're short... #Change #ChristianGrowth #ChristianLife
The One Thing That Never Changes
As I've been thinking about getting back into blogging after a long break and some pretty big change, I've found myself wondering just what I have to offer. The past three years have been the hardest of my life and the emotional tank has almost run dry... #Change #ChristianLife #Discouragment
Meeting With The Master In The Middle Of The Messy: 4 tips to save...
Ever had one of those days? You know, one of those days where you're awakened by a tiny person in the predawn hours, and it's one urgent need after another, until noon when you realize that not only are you still not dressed, but you haven't eaten anything... #BibleStudy #ChristianLife #Motherhood
God is always by your side, but He’s not always on your side.
If we want God to fight for us, we have to be on the same side as He is. But when we're behaving badly He can't be on our side. He's always on our side in the larger sense, in that He wants what's best for us, but when we are wrong that means He can't take our side. #ChristianLife #Kids #Marriage
Fighting the fear monster
The devil loves fear. He loves fear because it paralyses us. This formless, shapeless monster pushes its way into our lives, and stops us in our tracks. But we don't have to let it. It doesn't have to be that way. #Anxiety #Faith #Fear
Is there one sin that’s worse than every other sin?
Until the other day I had never seriously considered that question. All sin separates us from God. In that sense, it doesn't matter what that sin is, we're still cut off from enjoying a relationship with Him while we are living in our sin. But is there one sin that God... #ChristianLife #Godliness
