Victim, Slave, or Warrior

My post today is one that comes from a very angry and frustrated part of my soul. It is very personal and may be difficult for some viewers to read. But it must be said. We are bringing to light an issue that has been pushed just under the surface of our awareness for far

This Is War

Ya know that place in the Bible where Paul expresses his frustration with himself? It is literally an identical copy of my mind today. Romans 7:15-25: I do not understand the things I do.  Me either. I do not do the things I want to do, and I do the things I hate. Me again. And

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

Gettin’ My Psalms On : Day 4

Psalm 4 I was listening to a show on the radio this morning and heard an interesting tidbit of information. Now, I can’t remember every detail as I’d only had one measly cup of coffee at this point, so don’t quote me on any of this. But apparently, (not surprisingly) wealth and job security do

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

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

Evil Xbox Controller

Confession. I cannot, for the life of me, work the stupid Xbox controller. The reason is a complete mystery, not only to me, but to my family as well. They watch me throw a tantrum and yell at the console as the buttons refuse to do what I want, when I want it. It’s not

An Early Ending

As you all know, my heart has been transformed over the last month or so by obedience. I’ve been writing posts dedicated to the subject this week, a sort of mini series that’s been, at the very least, incredibly therapeutic and insightful for me. I hope it has been an inspiration to at least one

Choices

I know you guys are probably sick of hearing me preach on obedience, especially on such obvious sins. But that’s too bad. Just kidding! I do have so many things that God is purging from my life right now, and I have a zillion posts I want to write about how obedience is freeing me

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
