Are You Insecure?

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

All too often, we seem to have it all together but in reality we are falling apart. There is a woman in the Bible who was just like that. The Shulamite is the leading lady in the story of the Song of Songs. She was probably the luckiest woman alive at the time being married to the most successful gentleman around. Not only was Solomon an exceptional king, he was also deeply in love with his wife. Most girls swoon…

Getting Ready To Cross Over

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

What kind of Year was 2017? While I’m sure it was wonderful for some, I know that for others it was tough. Maybe you lost someone you love. Perhaps you faced some awful disappointments. It could be that you prayed, fasted and believed but did not see your breakthrough. Proverbs 23:18 says that the expectation of the righteous shall not be cut off. That means that we get what we expect. If we anticipate blessings, we align ourselves for God’s…

Discouraged

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Discouragement is one of the devil’s trusted weapons to take out God’s people. There are many different words for discouragement in the Old and New Testaments. One word means to weaken, to slacken and to forsake (rapa). Another means to faint, to melt or to waste away (masas). A third means to cut down or shorten (qasar). These definitions lay out satan’s plot for you. The enemy wants you to throw in the towel, and if he can’t get you…

Lonely

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

Feeling alone can produce a deafening silence. Walking through the door that was once shared with someone special. Sitting by yourself with a knot in your stomach. Loneliness can feel like a cold cloak separating you from companionship and love. It’s not necessarily that you don’t have anyone in your life. Perhaps you feel a deep, unmet need for companionship. Maybe you can’t relate to the people around you. Perhaps you’re unable to share your thoughts and feelings freely. Not…

You Are What You Think

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

The Bible makes a powerful statement: “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7. In other words, our inner thoughts determine the life we live. Do you remember old fashioned movie projectors? Perched on a tripod, they would project light through rolling tape onto a screen. That’s what our inner thoughts are like. They roll out the movie of our lives. My thoughts determine the person I become. They draw a boundary around my potential. If…

Poisoned Arrows

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

God created the whole world by the power of His words. Motivated by love and hope, He breathed life into every living creature. That was The Lord’s original plan for the tongue – to bring happiness and peace. Sadly, most of us end up being on the wrong end of wounding words at some time or other. I don’t know what hurtful things have been said to you. Perhaps in the heat of an argument, your husband or wife cut…

Some Things Are Better Out Than In

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

It’s easy to think that the way we are is just ‘the way we are’. Some people gush and others hold back. The Bible is clear than we need to show emotional self-control. However, if our habits are bad for our health then we should probably take a closer look to see if there is a cause or even a cure. Tamar was King David’s daughter. She was a tender young woman with a bright future. All too often, horrible…
