Cling To What Is Good

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Romans 12:9 There was a long time debate between philosophers and psychologists about whether or not humans are born with a moral compass of “right and wrong” or if we were born with a blanks slate. Based on recent studies with babies, […]

Striving to Become a Wisewoman

“For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding”. (Proverbs 2:6) “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt,…”(James 1:5-6)   When I think […]

It’s a Heart Condition

Search me, O God, and know my heart;  test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalms 139:23-24 This is one of my favorite scriptures to pray because the enemy often tries to manipulate my mind through anxiety.  I […]

Dear Lord, Keep My Mouth From Evil….Amen!

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs,  that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29 As a high school teacher, I have the unique experience of being able to see the similarities of behaviors in both children […]

Never Forget That Jesus Loves You

Every day we need to be reminded that Jesus loves us.  Today is no different.  Satan, our adversary, never gives up on looking for strategies to attack our self-worth, so we need to be as vigilant in reminding him that we know who we are in Christ! As you play this audio/video, allow God’s word’s […]

Scheduling Conflicts

Does your schedule revolve around Jesus or do you try to fit Jesus into your schedule?  This was a question that was presented in a recent devotional that I read.  This thought provoking idea lingered in my mind for several days.  I would guess that most people that consider themselves Christians, would answer that Jesus […]

Start Your Day With Jesus

If you are like me, it takes focus for me to organize my day.  I am a mom, wife, daughter, friend, teacher, colleague, ministry leader, business owner… and the list goes on and on.  On any given day, some of these roles takes precedence over the other and sometimes it is difficult to keep them […]

The Perfect Love Letter

Today, many people around the world are celebrating their love for one another.  Some have been busy making plans for several weeks and others are still trying to think of creative methods to show their appreciation for those that they care about.  But, in the busyness of focusing our attention on those around us, we […]

Laughter is Good For You

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength. Proverbs 17:22 With all of the woes that we experience in life, it is great to have opportunities to laugh. Anytime that we turn on the television or scroll through the pages of social media, there never appears to be any […]

If Jesus Were Sitting Next To Me….. 2018

I recently posed this self-reflective question at an event, “If Jesus were sitting next to you right now, what advice would he give you?”  As I reflect on 2017 and embrace 2018, I have to ponder the answer to this question for my own life.  Yes, 2017 came with many challenges, but there were many […]
