Redeemed to Speak


I was introduced to a poem the other day I had never heard in totality before, and when I did, something stirred within me. Something so profound, so raw, so unabashedly authentic, it hasn’t let my heart go. Something that rekindled the passion within me to never go silent, because in my silence…another life remains in bondage. No, it’s not…

We Are Good Enough


Today is Memorial Day. A million and one people will probably be blogging about this day today for a multitude of reasons…mostly to remember those who have fallen in our military, and their families that remain. I myself cannot blog such words, because I haven’t yet met anyone personally who has endured such tragedy. Nevertheless, it breaks my heart just…

On Discipline


I’m learning this week that to correctly administer discipline to our children, we mustn’t demand obedience…nor respect. We mustn’t demand anything of our children – demands only breed rebellion. No, disciplining is not bred through demanding…it’s bred through serving our children in love.

That love…is Christ.

Who Ya Livin’ For?


I don’t come from a church upbringing, but I sure do come from a religious upbringing.

I was in synagogue every Sunday for Sunday school, and in Hebrew School every Tuesday and Thursday, until I was 13…then from 13 to 16, I attended Hebrew High School. I was active, as I was also a teaching assistant for 3rd grade in my teenaged years.

I was also very active in Jewish Youth Organizations such as B’nai B’rith Girls (BBG) and United Synagogue Youth (USY). I volunteered in my synagogue and youth groups often (only find out I couldn’t fulfill them because my family said I wouldn’t be able to), and broken down with all this revealing: I was constantly doing, and from this I formed a habit of

This isn’t about you…or me


Once again, as as I attempt to come up with words to really drive a point home…I am humbled. God has this fantastical way of grabbing my attention and shaking me up a bit when it comes to the thoughts that ramble on through my head.

Concerning the post I made last week about the protected Christian, I have been reeling about the concept of this idea that at times we all get snookered into thinking about…

…“it’s all about me.”

The truth is, in reference to last weeks post, that this life…all of our lives…really isn’t about any of us. This life…it’s about

The Protected Christian


"Armor of God" by Pastor Robert Frazier

"Armor of God" by Pastor Robert Frazier

Today’s topic spawned from a post I wrote on Wednesday…however, it really culminated from the study I’ve been doing on and off now for years concerning Spiritual Warfare.

Yikes! Did I just say those two words?

Spiritual?

Warfare?

I absolutely did, and without a flinch in my face or a stutter on my tongue.

Friends, the Christian’s life is constantly under attack. When one comes to Christ at the time of salvation, embracing Him into their lives as their Lord and Savior, a huge red target is painted upon them that says to the enemy, “Here I am! I am God’s child!”

At first, we have a slight protection in the beginning of our walk that covers us in a way that guides us through our vigor and passion for Christ. We are excited and ready to tell others the gospel…the good news…of what God has done for us, and now what He can do for them! As much as this passion should be in place after salvation, there really needs to be a honing in of this passion…especially for the very new believer. For without it, one easily falls when one comes under attack from the enemy.
