Hatred of the World

Up until a few years ago, I was a “theistic evolutionist.” My husband talked till he was blue in the face to change my mind, but I was stuck in my views. Then, I actually read Darwin’s book (well, a little of it). I never had before. I just based my beliefs on what my …

Show Your Love

The song that keeps going through my mind is “They Will Know We Are Christians By Our Love,” but I know that’s not true, unfortunately. It’s something that weighs heavily on me. I couldn’t finish this post in time for yesterday morning because I kept re-writing it, watering it down so as not to offend …

The Vine and His Branches

John 15:5 (ESV) tells us that Christ also abides in us! That just blows me away! I wonder as David did: What is man that You are mindful of him,And the son of man that You give attention to him? Psalm 8:4 NKJV I try to be obedient to God and His Word. As I …

Abide in Christ

For the past fifteen months, our Pastors have been preaching from the Gospel of John, verse by verse. There is so much information in there, so much to learn, that even with this intense study, I still find myself going back and researching some more. Several weeks ago, we were in John 15 and the …

Never Give Up

More than a decade ago, I decided I wanted to take up jogging. I bought an armband to hold my iPod, sports earbuds, and an outfit to “look” the part. I researched it (because I research everything :::pushes up glasses::: ) to see how best to start, the proper “way” to jog, etc. Several months …

Testing Faith

Of course, following “a good day” (see yesterday’s post), there is a “not-so-good-day.” It was fine, but I just had to laugh at the circumstances that made it more trying than the previous day. I wondered, “Is this because I boasted about having a good day?” “Is it just impossible for me to have two …

A Good Day

Yesterday was a good day. What made it a good day was the absence of stress (or at least a considerable decrease in pressure). It seems kind of pitiful that I dread five out of seven days of each week. I never wanted to be one of those working for the weekend or living for …
