Revelations – Obeying God

Repost from Facebook Notes October 25, 2015 “We strictly charged you not to teach in this name, yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and you intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.” 29 But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men. 30 The God of our […]

Revelations – It’s Never What It Seems

Repost from Facebook Notes October 18, 2015 This Sunday is Laity Sunday in the Methodist Church. I’ve come to understand that this looks different in every church, and in the mind of every pastor. It’s also become clear that this Sunday for our little church is not going to plan. Well, at least not the […]

Revelations – What Did He Save You For…

Repost from Facebook Notes October 1, 2015 We are working through a new Bible Study on Wednesday nights. It’s called A Blueprint for Discipleship, and while the focus is Methodist, I’d have to encourage anyone looking for a deeper walk with Christ to give it a read at the very least. Better, find a friend […]

Revelations – The Rich vs The Poor

Repost from Facebook Notes September 27, 2015 This present struggle I am in, along with praying about our upcoming plans for a church meeting on vision for next year, has brought a thought from this past year into sharper focus. A touch of this thought is actually a part of a sermon I know I […]

God Talk – Praise in the Storm

Reposted from Facebook Notes September 26, 2015 This week has been strange. It began with the knowledge that for the first time in more than a year we would not be able to pay our rent. The check actually hit our account and was returned because I had been unable to cancel the auto pay […]

Revelations – None Are Righteous, No Not One

Repost from Facebook Notes September 11, 2015 So apparently my words yesterday that I thought might spark a firestorm, actually wound up making my husband chuckle. Let’s see if we can stay on a roll. As I always, I pray God will guide the words, and open the hearts of those who need them. I mentioned […]

Revelations – Holier Than Thou

Repost from Facebook Notes September 10, 2015 I am crying out for sleep right now. I have spent the day writing, mostly perky drivel, but it helps to pay the bills and is the work God put before me this week. My weak self says I could just go to bed and sleep now, God […]

Revelations – When I Cannot See

Repost from Facebook Notes August 13, 2015 I have often noticed over these last few years, sometimes I am blind. Getting older, some days that’s a literal blindness, when the tiny words on the backs of bottles that I used to be able to read with ease no matter what weird color contrast they had […]

Revelations – When Nothing Really Matters

Repost from Facebook Notes August 6, 2015  We are not built for weeks such as these. Depth of sorrow one day, soaring joy of miracles the next, trials building, resolutions coming, tremendous joy, and then crashing sorrow once again. All at the end of too many days, weeks, months of too much. Just too much. […]

Revelations – Suffer the Little Children

Repost from Facebook Notes July 29, 2015 Last week was a strange week. Amidst the news of Marines and a Sailor being gunned down not so very far from where I live (only a state away), and selling baby parts being not only excused but lauded by some, I found myself unable to really look at […]
