The Lie I Told Myself

Just as He was the provider for Abraham presenting the ram in the bush for sacrifice, and for Elijah on the mountain side, and as Jesus fed the five thousand. He is a provider for me and you.

Never get caught up in the lie that your provision is by your hand and not the hand of God.

The Temper Tantrum

Last week as I was on the phone with one of my really great friends; she was trying to give her 2 year old his cup, but he was crying and rejecting the cup – without even knowing what was in it.

A Woman's Work

As a woman studying and preparing to be an ordained and licensed minister, I realize that I will encounter many closed doors and latent discrimination because of my sex as a female. It subconsciously played a part in my own psyche as I struggled to accept that God called me to preach and teach His word. Not that I felt inadequate due to my sex, but I did wonder how I could fit in to a world dominated by men with the mindset that women are to be seen and not heard with respects to religion and maintain my outspoken personality and identity in Christ. It has been a journey.

After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.
