TEACHING MOMENTS – “Happily Ever After?” Part 2 – The Gift of Sonship

TEACHING MOMENTS – “Happily Ever After?” Part 2 – The Gift of Sonship

  In our last blog, we discussed how many of us grew up thinking and believing that marriage was created by our Father to make us happy, complete, and fulfilled. We discovered that marriage was never designed to complete us or fulfill the most intimate needs of our hearts… Jesus was. We also realized the strategies of the flesh only cause death, frustration, anger, rejection, and distrust in our relationships when our spouse doesn’t meet our expectations. To ‘Live Happily…

TEACHING MOMENTS – “Happily Ever After?” Part 1

If you are like me, I grew up with the belief that marriage was going to make me whole and complete. Just think of all the fairy tales we read, all the movies we’ve seen, and in the end, the couple lived Happily Ever After, right? But is this true? I talk a lot about this in a series I blogged in 2018 on the story of Cinderella called, Surrenderella; read her story when you get a chance. SURRENDERELLA Part 1…

TEACHING MOMENTS – “The Lessons of Patience?”

From our last blog, we discovered that our Father, Makes Everything Beautiful in His Time. My question use to be, “Why Lord are you taking so long?” Have you ever asked that question before?   Your body is in pain, your marriage is in trouble, your children are not walking with the Lord anymore, you are having problems at work, you are deep in debt, or you are in some deep emotional distress. It can be a million and one…

This blog was taken from the Epilogue in my book, My Return Home to Innocence. To understand the emotional and spiritual struggles my husband, Tony and I faced over the years, you can purchase my book on amazon.com or selahwithlove.com.    There are seasons in all of our lives and we must walk through all of them.   The great and wise King Solomon revealed some deep truths to us in Ecclesiastes I would like to reflect on. In Ecclesiastes…

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?”

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. Some are…

One Day Closer to Home Copyright © 2017 by Tresca S. Grannum     I can’t wait to go home!   Remember how the sun shined through the green lush trees all around And the laughter of the angels filled the air with their sound.   Remember how we played with our Papa the whole day through And our Lord guided us through His pastures, where the skies were so blue.   Remember lying in the meadows watching the birds…

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 – “Free to Submit”

As Dorian approaches in the next few days, I wanted to send out my blog a little earlier just in case we lose electricity. Please pray for us as we prepare for this hurricane. We know, in and through all circumstances, our Father is greater and able to keep us no matter what difficulties we may face. We look to Him for  grace, safety, and protection for all of us on the east coast.   The message of Submission is…
