Aware

Before Jesus died, He told His followers that He would leave them. BUT He promised that they would receive the Holy Spirit who would be with them forever (John 14:16). After His death and resurrection, He told His followers that they would receive power through the Holy Spirit (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8). Jesus did not…

Adventure with Jesus

If you missed it, please take a quick moment to read the last post, Constant Prayer. That post was basically an introduction to the subject of living in the awareness of Jesus being actually present with you. You might call it God-awareness or the practice of the presence or something else but regardless of what you…

Constant Prayer

Anxious ?

      We are indeed living in uncertain times. Many people are experiencing fearful and anxious thoughts just as a result of hearing the daily news. As Christians, this is an opportunity for us to shine in dark times. Our trust is not in ourselves, the government, or the wisdom of man. Our trust is […]

Threads

When Corrie ten Boom spoke to audiences, she would often hold up the back side of a piece of embroidery with hundreds of tangled threads hanging from it. Many wondered if she was holding up the wrong side by mistake. As she held up the messy side of the embroidery she would ask “Does God…

Acts 1:8

Book review for Wings of the Wind Author  Connilyn Cossette Publisher  Bethany House I love the Bible and that’s why I enjoy Biblical fiction. I long to be transported back to those times and places. I want to become immersed in the story and discover things I didn’t notice before while reading my Bible. The…

Thoughts on Prayer

There seems to be a renewed interest in improving our prayer lives today. A great number of new books, articles, websites, apps, and Bible studies are available on the subject. Sadly, some people are finding their study of prayer to be disappointing when put into actual practice. Far from being the wonderful experience of a deeper life,…

To Blog or not to Blog…

Becoming part of the blogosphere has been a gradual process for me. Let me tell you a little about my journey. It actually started with an experience I had while taking part in a FB group.  When a conversation started with someone asking for opinions on a hypothetical situation, it soon became clear that all views […]
