No Fear

Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear. It is punishment that makes a person fear, so love is not made perfect in the person who fears.  1 John 4:18 The Spirit we receive does not make us slaves again to fear; it makes us children of God. With

The Butterfly Effect

If you read my blog regularly, you know that I have started my “daily horror flick” tradition a few days early. Normally, I start it October 1st and watch a horror movie every day until after Halloween. I say normally, but let’s be real. Actual start date usually ends up falling somewhere in the last week

Horror, Yay or Nay?

John 8:1-11 1 Corinthians 13 Mark 12: 30-31 It’s that time of year, the time for hot chocolate and sweaters (yes I wear sweaters in Florida), the time for carving pumpkins and my all time favorite, watching horror movies! I can feel your looks of disgust even as I write it, but it’s true. I

Book Club #4

Yup, it’s that time again! And what awesome piece of literature will I be reviewing today? None other than one of my all-time favorites, Demon, A Memoir, by Tosca Lee. As you get to know me, you will realize I have a fascination with the supernatural. Not, like ghost hunting and stuff, how boring and cliché, but

Gettin’ My Psalms On : Day Two

Psalm 2 This passage reminds me of when my kids were babies. My son was a late talker, and he was the ripe old age of 3 when he spoke, or rather yelled, his first sentence. I remember it perfectly. I had Halle in the high-chair, desperately trying to get her to eat her food

South Florida Driving – Not For the Faint of Heart

It’s a well-known fact that drivers in South Florida are considered the worst in America. I like to believe that I am above stereotyping, so I chose not to give that rumor the time day when I moved here. Mistake. I have never been in a car accident, not once in my life (knock on

Gettin’ My Psalms On : Day One

Psalm 1 I love the imagery in this chapter. When we remain obedient to God, we are like a tree planted near the water. We bear fruit in season, and our leaves don’t die. Everything we do succeeds. I’m doing a little challenge for myself, one Psalm a day, everyday for the whole book -150

Wine & Weed VS Obedience

Alcohol and marijuana have been in and out of my life since I was about 14 years old. My love affair with alcohol began with a night at a friend’s cabin at a campground. We snuck out to go to a bonfire party with boys too old for us and had our first alcoholic drinks

My Playlist VS Obedience

“And now dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:8 “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Avoid all perverse talk;

A New Path

Yesterday, I talked about letting go. Letting go of whatever is holding you back from God’s purpose in your life. It could be sin, a relationship, an activity, a fear, a reliance on something other than God…but if you feel like you are missing out on God’s purpose for your life, I would challenge you
