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”

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,…

TEACHING MOMENTS “The Humble I Teach My Ways” Part 2

TEACHING MOMENTS “The Humble I Teach My Ways” Part 2

Learning to humble myself and sit at the feet of my Lord Jesus daily hasn’t been easy. Within the heart of most believers, is the desire to serve Him, rather than love Him. If you look at Martha in the picture above, she is listening to Him at a distance rather than choosing to be close to Him face to face and at His feet like her sister, Mary. Serving Jesus with outward activities is one way to hide from…

SEEING JESUS FROM BEGINNING TO END

SEEING JESUS FROM BEGINNING TO END

Our last blog reminded us everything in heaven and earth was created by Jesus Christ and ‘For Him.’ We also learned we were created ‘For Him and By Him’ for a loving relationship and to enjoy Him forever! If He is not the Center of our World… then we are; what senseless struggles we will incur. But did you know that our Lord Jesus is in every book of the Bible? If you like hide and go seek, then you…

WHO AM I…? REALLY?

WHO AM I…? REALLY?

Who am I? Why am I here? Why was I created? For what purpose was I created? These are the questions of a searching heart. They are the questions that have been asked by mankind since the beginning of time. Mankind remains desperate to make sense of his world and the world around him. We look to the stars for our purpose. We look to nature for ‘the why’ of our existence, then we worship IT. We try to satisfy…

But neither one of them had the courage to go to the kitchen.   Then, all of a…

Her parents were torn from her when she was five years old and sold to a slave owner 10 miles from the…
