  • FEAR My Worst Enemy…or so I Thought.

    Last night at D.I.A.L It Up women’s class, I listened to Tammy Herron about “first times”…things that have happened to us and how it impacts our mind and most of the rest of our lives. You know like the first love? That even when you think about it now, it’s still like no other love […]

  • When We Come to End of self…

      Coming to end of self is excruciating (agonizing, severe, acute, intense, violent, racking, searing, piercing, stabbing, raging, mentally agonizing; very embarrassing, awkward, or tedious.)…but needed.  The Bible says 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature, the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. The part […]

  • Stripped of me

    Perception….. Being in a church of such diversity can be tough. I remember the first few times of being in various classes, I was the most uncomfortable person in the world and I couldn’t wait to leave. I could never put my finger on it as to why. It wouldn’t be long, after building a […]

  • Be Anxious for Nothing….

    At times it seems as if I go through these periods of everything being a struggle. During these times I feel anxious about everything around me. I have to constantly remind myself of the scripture in Philippians chapter 4:6-7 that say… Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with Thanksgiving, let […]

It reads…. 13For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for […]

However it is when we can move past our boundaries into the openness where we are vulnerable…between our boundaries and situations, circumstances and others is when we change. In the […]

  • Friendship & Love

    Recently, I’ve had several opportunities to see and feel what true ministry and friendship is all about. In the past I’d always considered myself a good friend. Today, I’m learning that friendship and love are ACTION words. There are some other good action words that we too often used as nouns; like grace and mercy. […]

  • A Second Chance

    If I could pick the verse that best describes what has happened in the last five years of my life, I would point to: And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of […]

  • Thank God it’s Spring!

    Never in my entire life have I looked forward to Spring more than this year. I know I am growing older and the entire, dark, dismal days of winter have been awful for me this year. The need for greater and longer lasting light is appreciated so much more than in years past. The winter […]
