What is a birth ministry?

I’ve made a goal this month to promote birth ministries.  I actually have a contest going on between the website and the facebook page to have individuals share about their birth ministry.  This brought up an interesting question, what is a birth ministry? I have a group of friends that struggled through this question as […]

Did you notice?

Did you notice I had been posting verses and commentaries on the facebook page?  It was just easier to manage with my crazy schedule right now.  I hope to slow down after January, but will still be enrolled in way to many credits so I don’t know when I can jump back here regularly – […]

More on Grace and Peace

Just as a side note, I did a search for peace and grace on a Bible search engine.  Interesting fact is that in the new testament letters, grace and peace were often the greetings.  As an example, consider this: Titus 1:4 To Titus, my true son in our common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and […]

Grace and Peace

No sudden improvements in my ability to act with grace.  Learning is a slow process. So time to add another piece to the mix – peace that is. Ephesians 4:2-4 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.  Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond […]

Turning My Heart

1 Kings 18:37 Answer me, LORD, answer me, so these people will know that you, LORD, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again. I just wanted to share this with you.  I don’t believe in Christianity that is about doing the right thing.  If all I need in life depends on me […]

Rock Salt Anyone?

Colossians 4:6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. I know I have salt.  My conversations are definitely full of truth to the point of being stabbing. My conversation isn’t seasoned with salt, It’s drowned in rock salt. If I made cookies with the wrong […]

Colossians 4:6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. I’ve already admitted to being without grace, so lets continue on with the next part of this verse.  Are my conversations seasoned with salt.  How are we going to define salt? I think about […]

People vs. Time

Colossians 4:6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. Yesterday I started with this verse, and said I tend to avoid conversations because people waste my time.  I promised to explain that fuller today. As a student, I have only so much control over […]

Seasoned with Salt

Colossians 4:6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. I am still learning about Grace.  About what it means for me personally, and what it means to me as a parent.   Today God brought me to this verse. I’m wondering about this […]

Not me, but the Lord

Acts 4:33b-34 And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales Again God brings me to a verse I would never have picked. I feel like I’m […]
