We are the Church

I started to write a devotional from this verse I read in Psalms (122:1). Got half of it written as a matter of fact, before I had to stop yesterday. When I came back to it this morning, I realized that maybe I was being directed to write another blog post, as it didn’t seemContinue reading “We are the Church”


I’ve taken a vacation in my head the last few days. I haven’t studied and I haven’t written (because the writing comes out of the studying). I sat down at my desk this morning and realized just how much of a “vacation” I took from God. I don’t even want to share this. I don’tContinue reading “Slipping”

My sin, the sin that was thrust upon me and that I gave in to and eventually embraced was sexual sin. I don’t know how to address the topic, I don’t know how to treatContinue reading “Thoughts”

I Can’t

I wonder sometimes what my life would be like if I had followed Christ from the time He became my Savior instead of taking the detour I took. Would I still be married? Would we be in some form of service or ministry together? I have looked back over my marriage, over the sin thatContinue reading “I Can’t”
