Where Do You Stand?

I don’t want any part of it. It’s not good for you, although it may appear that way for a short while. You may not feel the consequences yet, but you will. It’s going to kill you, actually. We’ve got to stop looking only at the short term, because the future ramifications will be here…

Jenga!

There’s a lot of deconstruction going on in the church. It’s kinda like Jenga. “I don’t agree with this piece, so lemme pull it out. Um..this one seems a bit harsh..see ya! Ooohh..this piece isn’t going to work for me, either..” Sooner or later, the whole thing comes crashing down. Now, you’re left with two…

Wakey Wakey

This morning I’ve been weeping for the people of Afghanistan and the horrific nightmare that is now their reality. The Taliban is in full possession of billions of dollars worth of U.S. weaponry and are going door to door murdering anyone who isn’t on board with their reign of terror. People are literally clinging to…

Gotta Have Faith-fulness

Would you have married your husband (or wife) if you knew they would be unfaithful? Would you have promised to love and honor and devote the rest of your life to a person who disrespected and hurt you with continuous infidelity? Hosea was a prophet; a man of God who lived about eight hundred years…

Are you Fruity?

For anyone who has placed their faith in Jesus: Galatians 5:16-26 NLT[16] So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. [17] The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us…

Me-ology and the Churld

If you are a Christian, and your pastor is preaching anything other than what’s in the Bible, it’s time to find a new church. Today. I recently heard of a local pastor who refuses to officiate any weddings at all because he’s too afraid to stand on Biblical principles and say “no” to marrying couples…

Bruh.

I am having a tremendously hard time with writer’s block this week. It took me hours to cobble together the short post I wrote yesterday and today I’m going back and forth between finishing up a piece on law enforcement (God help me) or talking about how I used to think life in the suburbs…

Start Here

I love the part in the Bible where the disciples just went about their normal lives and tried to be “nice”. They never offended anyone, and they got lots of “likes” on their encouraging and inclusive Facebook posts. Man, they were likeable guys. That’s not how it really went down, though, is it? That story…

My God Story

Guys. I have NEVER had it all together. Not before I was a Christian, and not since becoming one. I fall short every day. But if God can take the mess I was, the girl who thought she had zero value, then he can do the same for you. The amazing thing is, he longs…

Going Viral

These are strange times. I’ve never been part of a plague before. It’s hard to remember what it feels like to just go places without worrying about who might be carrying a deadly virus. Or if there will be toilet paper. Really, doomsday preppers? You had to take ALL of the Charmin? We are blessed….
