False: I need to Know

We all have to fight the human desire “ to want to be like God”. Satan convinced Adam and Eve that eating the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil would make them like God. They would know good and evil. The deception there was that Adam and Eve were already…

Divine Exchange

I’ve been thinking a lot about the sacrifice that Jesus made for us. The cost He paid so that we can have relationship with God, our Father. This leads me to think about the choices I make. Whether those choices are worthy of the sacrifice Jesus made for me. While salvation is a gift, it’s…

Truth: God is Constant

It’s Wednesday night and  I’m brushing my teeth realizing that tomorrow is Thursday and I still have nothing to post on my blog. But to be honest, I didn’t have anything to post. There were certain things the Holy Spirit and I have been working through and that’s all there is. But while I was…
