An observation on John 16

If you were Jesus’s disciple and he said that his father would give you anything you asked for in Jesus name, what would you ask for? I was thinking about that. Growing up in the culture of America, I automatically think of asking for things, things for me and maybe my family or maybe even asking for someone to get […]

What James 1 says about Parenting

In our church home team, we have been studying James 1 and I have noticed many ways these verses can be applied to my role as mother. To begin with, James 1:4 says “Let your patience show itself perfectly in what you do…” I don’t know about you but I find my patience tested often. Children will sometimes not obey. […]

I Choose

Yesterday as I was driving to church, I was feeling a little down for no reason at all. As I thought about it, I was tempted to dwell on it. Then I remember that I was going to worship God and Satan doesn’t like that. So in my mind, I prayed that God would help me to refocus on Him […]


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. […]

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 […]

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. […]
