Open-Handedness

Open-Handedness

If you live with your hands open, you will not cling too tightly to what you have, so you will be free to give it away, but you are also opening your hands to the blessings God wants to pour into them.

A Cross and a Tomb

A Cross and a Tomb

It is almost unbearable to rehash the story of Christ's death.  Even after decades of reading this story, I instinctually groan when the chief priests and the Pharisees called Him "that deceiver" (Matthew 27:63).  Because it's such a blasphemous lie!  It is nearly...

Memorize Beauty

Memorize Beauty

I am fasting right now.  I almost didn't write this post, because fasting is such a personal thing, and usually meant to stay between a girl (or guy) and her God, but in this case, it's at the spark that ignited these thoughts, so it must be said.  Back to where I...

Timeless or Trendy?

Timeless or Trendy?

As a writer, I am continuously bombarded, or rather stampeded, by the nagging voice from without and within.  "Build your email list!" it says, "Build your email list!"  This voice is like standing at the base of Kilimanjaro, with only 3 steps behind me and a million...

The Often-Overlooked Sadducees

The Often-Overlooked Sadducees

It intrigues me, how the Bible talks of two groups of people who were the religious zealots of Christ's day, but we usually only focus on one.  The Pharisees.  How few of us ever even consider the Sadducees?  I know I am guilty of such an overlook.  Recently it...

Romans 8:26-30

Romans 8:26-30

"In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for...
