Walking by Faith

Walking by faith IS walking by sight. The thing is, we don’t walk according to what we can perceive with our 5 senses. Though we may be in a dire situation financially, relationally, emotionally, we are charged to walk forward with the Lord. We don’t often see many people in today’s world operating without a … Continue reading

God’s Judgments are His Mercy

Sisters, brothers… Believers in the Lord Almighty and His Only Begotten Son Jesus whom He gave to save us from our sins; I say to myself and I say to you: whatever affliction is facing you right now has been allowed by the Lord. Although Satan has temporary authority on earth given him at the … Continue reading

Success and Failure

The devil’s really been trying to tempt me to think that I’m a failure. In the eyes of the world and its measures of success (along with many Christians’, I might add), I stink. I haven’t held any job post-college for more than 2 years. I have no pension into which I’m currently paying. I … Continue reading

The Ministry of the Holy Spirit

Lord, please let your words and ideas flow through me now as I sit down to type this out. THis is for me and for the rest of your people – in Jesus’ name, amen. ——– I was doing some work around the house today (pretty common with me since I work in the same … Continue reading

Operation, Design, and Frustrated Love

Insomnia & Laura Story

Been spending time with the Lord this morning, and it’s been GLORIOUS!  Got some housework done, and then I felt as though the Lord was calling me in unto Himself, for some private time with Him.  I don’t often, or at least up until now, haven’t often, shared about such experiences, but I feel compelled … Continue reading

From Yesterday Morning: A Shepherd’s Warning

So, I was reading in Ezekiel yesterday, and you know what struck me?  It struck me how the Lord was warning the shepherds of the house of Israel. Similiarly, I believe that the Lord is now warning the shepherds in the Gentile church, specifically those in the West.  Our pastors have been able to live … Continue reading

Honestly: A Struggle

I feel compelled to write.  It’s ten of three in the morning.  I’m not one to talk about these kinds of things to people (usually talk only to the Lord ’bout ‘em), especially in a public forum like this, but I feel like I’m supposed to; here goes!  After months, and now I’m realizing years, … Continue reading

God is Angry

God is angry. Yes, He’s STILL angry. And the object of that anger? It’s sin. So, if you or I are the ones that DO that sinning, then He’s angry at our sin, and since we’re the ones who chose to do it, HE’s ANGRY WITH US.  God is Holy.  He is perfect.  He is without … Continue reading
