The Faces of God – My Testimony

The Faces of GodI now know God differently. I know a new side of Him. I can testify about it. Revelation 12:11 says we overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. So here I am to share my testimony with you because I am an overcomer. If you want some juicy scoop about me, here, I’m dishing. Read on…

Forgiveness

ForgivenessForgive:

to stop feeling anger toward (someone who has done something wrong)

to stop blaming (someone)

to stop feeling anger about (something)

to stop requiring payment of (a debt that is owed)

 

Forgiveness is a tough subject to address. To properly deal with it requires drudging up old feelings, confronting ourselves (and others) with painful truths that have been buried. It can be like pulling the scab off of a wound and pouring salt in it. Painful. Something we’d rather not think about and pretend to have moved on.

Assessing Strength and Weakness

strength in weakness; God's grace is sufficientI have to get this out of my system. Bear with me if I ramble or don’t make sense, but this blog is very cathartic for me.

Living in the Overflow

living in the overflowGive and it will come back to you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over. – Luke 6:38

The Bible verse cited above is used quite often during church offertories to insight people to give.  I think we hear it so often the potency within it is almost taken for granted; we hear the words but don’t apply the wisdom.  Because of the economy, stinginess, or a simple lack of faith in the truth of the passage, we shirk off giving as if it’s beneath us yet we all desire to receive.  I can honestly say I live by giving of myself. I may not always have the material means to donate thousands of dollars to a cause, but I have learned that I cannot beat God in giving. Read More →
