    I Want To Be A Slave

    “I wanna be a new man and set aside my old skin cause as hard as I’ve been trying I can stop wounding Yours I wanna be a slave and surrender all my dreams then forget I ever had them and live inside of Yours I want to be forgotten and be fully eclipsed in just the gospel and its sweetness that and nothing more I wanna be a dead man just a body You can live in I wanna be Your prized possession that and nothing more” These are the lyrics of a 1 minute and 43-second song.

    I Am Guilty Of Abortion.

    I’ve never walked into an abortion clinic. I would never consider letting a doctor take the life of my unborn child, but I am guilty of putting my own desires before God’s and before another human.  One day I fell into a pit of fear—gut-clenching panic, a debilitating numbness in my limbs, stark terror rushing through my brain. I checked and rechecked the test strip in my hands before finally assuring myself that it was all right. I wasn’t pregnant. But if I had been? A kid would cramp my style. It would change the life I’ve made for myself: a comfortable, good life. I have a husband who loves me, friends, work,…

    God Will Provide

    “Jehovah-Jireh” is the KJV’s translation of YHWH-Yireh and means “The LORD Will Provide I have recently been thinking a lot about the names of God and so I thought I would share some thoughts here. The one that most sticks in my mind and I keep going back to again and again is Jehovah Jireh. “God will provide.” I’ve been wondering how this, one truth of who God is, could change how I live my life if I could only grasp it in full clarity? The first place this name of God is used in the bible is with Abraham. God provided a lamb instead of Abraham sacrificing his son…

    A Story Of Bold Women

    Thinking of bold and courageous women…here is a true story. In the latter days of the Holocaust, there was a group of Jewish men that were targeted by Hitler for their extermination. The Gestapo called it the “Final Roundup”. Initially, both Hitler and another Nazi party leader had worried about the reaction of the German spouses if they were to be forcibly removed from the Jewish spouse. So, instead, they resorted to social pressure to force a divorce, so that the Jewish spouse could then easily be sent to the death camps. Consequently, those men whose wives gave in and divorced them WERE killed! This plan didn’t totally succeed though…
