    Abstinence Until Marriage is Not an Impossibility, it is a Choice.

    I recently watched a video of a person talking to college students on their campus of political and moral issues of our day. They were discussing abortion and a young girl was telling how many girls find themselves pregnant and abortion is their only option because their future is at stake. To whom the man replied that abstinence was one of many options that could be practiced in order to avoid pregnancy and also abortion. The girl begin to argue that teen pregnancy rates are through the roof and that just won’t work, they must keep abortion available for them. She begin to act like practicing abstinence was impossible. To…

    Simple Modesty

    Yes, I know this is a huge topic that most tend to just leave alone, but since I find it in scripture and I wholly want to please my Lord and Savior, I must be concerned with it. First, I would like to point out that there is far left and far right on this issue. There are so many voices and opinions and lines and degrees of what people deem modest that it can get real confusing real fast. Since it seems confusing most just throw up their hands and say forget it, I’ll just dress in what I feel is best. But that also doesn’t work because we…

    Women Are Insecure Of Their Own Femininity

    I recently heard someone make this comment and it struck me. Could this really be the case? What is the definition of insecure? 1. not confident or assured; uncertain and anxious. 2. not firm or set; unsafe. So are women really uncertain and not firm or set in femininity? Yes, I believe so and we can see it in our culture around us. Women have been told that their femininity is not good enough. We are told that to have worth and value and live significant lives, we must take on masculinity. These ideas have been pushed in our culture for a while now. Women are feeling uncertain as women.…

    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,…

    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…

    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…
