TEACHING MOMENTS – “The Members of the Body of Christ”

TEACHING MOMENTS – “The Members of the Body of Christ”

Once upon a time, the parts of the body were having a serious conversation. Each part was trying to determine who was the most important. The eye was the first to make its defense, it said, “Well, you know I have to be the most important part because without me you will never know where you are going!” The hands replied, “We will just feel our way around through life with me!” The mouth said, “No No! You both are…

TEACHING MOMENTS – “Are We Living for Time or Eternity?”

REMEMBER OUR BROTHER DEMAS   Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there comes a falling away first (from the faith), and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (Amplified)   TIME OR ETERNITY   Today’s blog is a little more serious because all around us, we hear messages not congruent or in harmony to what was passed down from the Apostles of old.

TEACHING MOMENTS – “I Can”

TEACHING MOMENTS – “I Can”

Jesus said, “I can do nothing on my own initiative or authority. Just as I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just (fair, righteous, unbiased), because I do not seek My own will, but only the will of Him who sent Me. John 5:30 In the Gospel of John, our Lord Jesus taught us a very important truth. He lived a life totally and completely dependent on the Spirit and the desires of His Father.  He emphasized the point that He…

TEACHING MOMENTS – “Letting Go, While Entrusting”

TEACHING MOMENTS – “Letting Go, While Entrusting”

We have learned over the past blogs about Submission; to submit means to yield the right of way to, give up rights to, let go of power or will to, to be subject to, and come under the authority of as pleasing to our Lord Jesus Christ. One phrase I want to focus on that is paramount in submitting is learning to ‘Let Go of.’ You can review the series I wrote in-depth on the subject beginning December 2017 through…

TEACHING MOMENTS “My Most Intimate Needs Can Only Be Fulfilled By God”

TEACHING MOMENTS “My Most Intimate Needs Can Only Be Fulfilled By God”

Most of my life, I tried desperately to try to fill the most intimate needs of my heart through people. My parents were the first people in my life who I thought were created to meet them but they couldn’t. Then, I thought my family and friends… they couldn’t. Finally, I thought maybe my boyfriends or husband and they couldn’t either. Finally, I looked to activities, work, positions, church, and ministry… they brought more stress, but some brought temporary satisfaction….

TEACHING MOMENTS “In the Kingdom of God… Weakness is Strength”

It’s been 40 years now walking with my Lord but in the early part of my journey with the Lord, I tried desperately to hold my life together as it was falling apart.  I often felt weak and vulnerable, which were my greatest fears. But, I discovered how the Lord used my weakness and vulnerabilities to become my greatest strengths.   How many of us hate feeling weak and vulnerable? It is natural to protect ourselves from danger, failure, fears,…
