Going Deeper With God

Just a short post today. Early last week I finished doing my study of the book of John in the Bible. I’d like to say I worked on it every single day, but that would be a lie. Something I noticed, as I looked back over the notes I took, was at the beginning of…

Your Sin Is Worse Than Mine…

I don’t know how many times I hear of people, and have had it said to me, that someone else’s sin is worse than whatever their sin is. It’s like people believe there is a big list ranging from number one to…however many sins there are. And on that list is ranked the least sin…

Ideas For Creating a Prayer Journal

  I used to keep a prayer journal several years ago. I don’t really know why I stopped; I probably just got lazy or forgetful, and it gradually fell by the wayside. I used a simple, cheap, journal I had purchased at a dollar store to record my prayers in. I wrote somewhat specific prayers…

How Is Your Cup?

We all know Psalm 23. It’s usually quoted at funerals. I memorized this Psalm from the King James Version when I was younger (that was the only version available to me at the time), and in that version verse 5 states, “My cup runneth over.” I used to think this was a bad thing. I…

It’s Not Really A Guest Post Per Se…

I have a post over on the website for Apple Blossom Ministries! It’s called, “5 Steps to Help Study the Bible.”  I’d love for you to visit there. I’d also love for you to come back and let me know how you study the Bible. Do you have any steps to add? What are you currently studying?

The Armour of God – Part 4

16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Ephesians 6:16-17, NASB) Shield of Faith These last three…

At My Age?!

I am almost 50 years old.  It seems like only yesterday that I was half the age I am now. Sometimes I feel like I’m now too old to take on new roles, new adventures, follow new paths. I often think, “If only I had started this in my 20s or 30s….” and then I feel depressed…

The Armour of God – Part 3

14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace (NASB) As previously mentioned in this series, we don’t rush into battle; we stand firm. We’re reminded of that again in verse 14. Because standing firm is mentioned more than once,…

Where You Can Find Hope

I attended university as a mature student – I was in my 30s. In fact, I graduated from my BA (in Biblical Studies) twenty years after I graduated high school! A couple of years after that I went back for another year to complete my Bachelor of Education degree (I already had several courses I…

The Armour of God – Part 2

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armour of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day,…
