    But What If…

    We love to play this game. We make decisions on it. We give up because of it. We allow fear and doubt to win because of it. We miss out on victory because of it. It is the “what if” game. What if I don’t receive healing? What if I have another miscarriage? What if I am consumed with bitterness after I forgive? What if they think I condone it? What if I tithe and then can’t pay my bills? What if I can’t support my family? What if I have another child and can’t give them what they need? What if my health declines? What if my children grow…

    Can We Move On To Higher Things Now?

    Fashion. Makeup. Self-image. Perfect weight. Flawless skin. These are subjects that concern and consume unbelieving women, but also, concern and consume us believing women as well. I’m asking, should this be so? I’ve grown weary with these subjects. Just plain tired of them. I feel they are robbing us of eternal mindsets and visions. Just think about it with me for a minute. Here we are in a world of darkness, souls are dying all around us, babies are being murdered every day, mothers have lost their mother-hearts, fathers are abandoning their posts, men and women are throwing off masculinity and femininity, families are broken down, tons of children are…

    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. It’s a very short song, but the lyrics get me every…

    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,…

    5 Reasons Why I’m Not A Feminist

    We are now in what people are calling the 3rd wave of feminism and when I listen to the ideology behind this 3rd wave, I just can not align myself with its core beliefs. I will list my reasons below. 1. I believe the core of feminism is against God’s biblical design It is very clear in Scripture that men and women were both created equally in the image of God and both have the same value and worth. But we were created distinct from each other with differing roles. One role is not above the other. Both roles are needed for a healthy family life to exist. We find…

    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…

    Value

    Before I was born, the doctors told my parents that I would have down syndrome. My parents, being unwed, were definitely not ready for a baby. They weren’t financially ready. They weren’t emotionally ready. My mom wasn’t physically ready as she was only seventeen. Yet, they saw my value. They had everything against them, and they still saw the value of my life and refused to abort me. My ministry is clearly women and their wombs. God has placed a truth in my heart that I believe needs to be spread. The truth of trusting God with our wombs. I used to say this truth was only for Christian women.…

    I want to tell you a story.

    Years ago an Englishman had gone out to California, made his fortune in the gold fields and wanted to go back and live with his own people. So he sent his money back by check to England and then he came overland, through Santa Fe trail, Kansas City, into Missouri and then down the Mississippi and ended up in New Orleans where he was going to take a ship to New York and from there to England. As a tourist in New Orleans, he did what most tourists do, he went down to the slave market and there in the early 1850’s were slaves still being sold. As he went…

    When The Enemy Gets Loud

    We live in a time where the Enemy is really loud and seems to be triumphing in our land. He is spreading lies, we are listening and the result… Marriage is degraded. Motherhood is lame and despised. Mothers kill their babies every day. Life holds no value. Women are abandoning femininity. Men are abandoning masculinity. Nothing is sacred anymore. Much filth, sin, unrighteousness, and hate consume our country. Selfishness and a lack of love for the truth are visibly seen. Truth has indeed fallen in the streets. Christ, His Gospel and His Kingdom of holy living are laughed at in scorn. “And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth…
