Character?

Have you ever read a verse in the Bible many times over with a general understanding but then all of a sudden you receive a powerful new insight? For some reason I was reading in Proverbs 31 (You know the virtuous woman passage or the passage about the super christian woman. ) For the first time verse 10 stood out. […]

Somebody’s listening

One of my New Year’s resolutions a year ago was the verse James 1:19. In the New Century version it says ” My dear brothers and sisters, always be willing to listen and slow to speak. Do not become angry easily.” I must say I am still working on it and some days are better then others. This verse came […]

Our Focus

When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we become a new creation. As a new creation, we will then start to see the world differently. In Galatians 6:14, Paul tells us that through Jesus Christ the world has been crucified to us and us to the world. This means how we relate to the world around us will change. In […]

Galatians 5: Free to do what?

In Galatians 5:1 Paul tells us that it was for freedom Christ set us free. So what are we going to do with this freedom? Well, Paul has a few suggestions. 1. I am to look forward to seeing God fulfill His promises. “But we who live by the Spirit eagerly wait to recieve everything promised us who are right […]

Our Hearts Cry Out: Galatians 4

Galatians 4:6 NAS And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba, Father.” Isn’t it neat that the God of all creation put it into our hearts to cry out to him to seek him. God has put a hole in our heart that can only be filled by Him. […]

Galatians 3: Faith vs the Law

I have enjoyed thinking about this battle between Faith and the Law, yet not knowing how to put it into words it has taken me a while to write this blog . Let us start with Faith. For Faith to work I need a relationship with God. How can I trust the promises of someone I don’t know? How can […]

A Glance Back at Our School Year

At this time last year, I had no idea what our first year of homeschooling would be like. I must admit teaching my daughter went better then I thought. It took a while for us to get use to each other but we both loved books so we often couldn’t wait to find out what was happening next. It did […]

Favorite verse: Galatians 2:20

Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and delivered Himself up for me.” Even though the first part of this verse is very hard […]

Tell me again… Galatians 1

You know I used to sort of space out during the last part of a sermon when the preacher will often go over the plan of salvation for those who may need to make a decision. I knew it needed to be said but didn’t think I needed to hear it again. But I do need to hear it again. […]

What’s in a name

I don’t know if you enjoy the Psalms or not but in different stages of my life I have gravitated to their words and found in them peace and comfort. This year in Bible Study Fellowship, I was challenged to examine the Psalms more deeply and to use them as a part of my daily prayers. As I read the […]
