Get Out of the Way

When we give up striving and trying to save ourselves with our own efforts,  when we finally  get out of His way, God finally has a chance to save us from ourselves.Sometimes God waits till we are almost drowning, exhausted by our own efforts to save ourselves because He knows that this is the only time we will accept salvation on HIS terms.What Jesus did for me, , Yongsung Kim....more

To Be Young, Gifted and Saved

Last month, I taught Vacation Bible School at my church. My students were ages 18-29. As I prepared to teach the lessons for that week, I thought about my own life from ages 18 to 29. I shared with the class that I did not become saved until I was 28 years old. They have a great advantage by having a relationship with God at a young age. Hopefully, they can avoid some unnecessary pain and suffering that I experienced....more

Thoughts on John 14:6

 In my blogging travels today, I came across a  refreshing post that spoke of the exclusivity of Christ.   It instantly reminded me of  what Jesus said on that very subject - a verse with which many are familiar.  Have you ever considered what that verse is really saying?  ...more

Be brave...

Recently, a friend told me the story of how she was having problems with a coworker.  The coworker disagreed with everything she did constantly.  She tried to resolve the differences, but to no avail.  As the disagreement continued to escalate she asked the coworker if she carried any burden of the blame for their differences.  The coworker full of pride, answer “No” and cast all the blame on my friend.  My friend admitted she was so frustrated and hurt.  So, she cried out to Christ.  The Lord told her to forgive the coworker and to apologize to her! ...more

Star Wars and God: My message from C-3P0.

I had to search deep in my purse for something to write with yesterday morning.  I fingered a half eaten chocolate chip granola bar and a diaper before finally getting to where the pens hide.  The one I eventually pulled out was from a Star Wars birthday party my son attended last weekend.  It’s bright orange with a picture of C-3P0 and has this really cool window on the side so that when you click the pen in and out, a quote from C-3P0 shows up.  Four quotes scroll by a...more
