When Jesus doesn’t Act like we want

When Jesus doesn't act like we want it can be hard to handle.

I don’t know about where you live, but here in South Carolina, Spring has begun to show itself. The weather has gotten warmer, the birds are singing and the trees have started to bud. One of the first things that buds around here are the red bud trees. When they begin to bloom, it feels as if, God took an…

What if the Bible study is just too hard?

We have finally completed our study in the book of Job! This is certainly something to celebrate. I have struggled getting through this book. It has been discouraging for me as we sloughed through this depressing book during the gray months of the year. I have been thinking about how to conclude our study in Job. I could easily talk…

Who do you believe?

It seems like everywhere you look there is someone else who is teaching a new idea. Every day there is a new book, a magazine article, and even a celebrity on TV who is teaching a new idea or spiritual belief.

Are you making God in your own image?

Is my view of God what it should be?

Are you making God in your own image? That is a big statement I know, but it is something that we really need to consider. This week we have been reading in Job chapters 16 through 20. The first time I read through these chapters I was feeling a little underwhelmed. It is again Job and his friends going back…

Are you a bad friend?

What sort of a friend are you?

What kind of friend are you? Some days I am not a very good friend. I tend focus on what I am going to say next rather than actually listening well to the person talking. I tend to be quick to make judgments about people and their situations. I don’t always seek the Lord before I give advice, instead I…

How we obey is important

Learning to Obey is Constant This past week we have been continuing our study in the book of Numbers. I have been surprised at how the Lord has been really teaching me how important it is to obey God through our Good Morning Girls study. The Lord blesses so much as we are digging into his word. Digging deeper into…
