Sukkot

Sukkot, also referred to as Feast of Booths or Tabernacles, was a celebration feast where God told Moses to dwell in tents for 7 days.  This was a celebration that happened after they harvested their land.  Now, it also represents the 40 years spent in the desert as God guided them through it.  So, we…

Our Witness at Home

I believe the Christian family is a micro kingdom of God. When I say “Christian”, I don’t mean by mere identity, but a family whose parents have made the commitment to set aside their family for God. When operating under God’s order and Christ’s headship, not perfect by any means, I believe we get a…

Our Witness

Just recently, I was vocalizing my lack of confidence in myself over something and the person I was talking to, an unbeliever, gently reprimanded me for the words I was using against myself. It wasn’t that I was embarrassed at her correction, but I immediately felt a gut check. My words and actions were not…

More Than Enough

I usually have an idea of what I want to write, but I have been blank for the past two days. I started listening to a song called “God of More Than Enough”. I am sitting here thinking...what if? What if we actually bought into this concept that God really is more than enough? More…

As One

Single-Hearted Devotion

“Adonai, teach me your way so that I can live by your truth; make me single-hearted so that I may fear your name. I will thank you, Adonai my God, with my whole-heart and I will glorify you forever” ~ Psalm 86:11-12 This Psalm passage isn’t one of the more popular ones. You won’t see…

Free For All

So, I want to talk about freedom for a little bit.  Well, type...not talk.  But, I'm going to just get to the point.  You are not free for you; you are free for others.  “Others” includes our Creator.   Why do you think we were created?  We were created to worship God.  THAT is the…
