She Gave Him a Cup of Water and He Gave Her a Well







 Father I come to you as humbly as I know how. I’m asking you to touch my lips with the coal from the altar and purify them to speak only words from you. Let the words from my mouth bring glory to you. I seek none for myself for it’s all about you Lord, all about you. And if I fail, in words, to express what I feel in my heart, I pray Holy Spirit will reveal it to open and receptive hearts. In Jesus' name, amen!

Bitter and Sweet



“No good water comes from a muddy stream, no sweet fruit comes from a bitter seed! “
( Jose Rizal)
“Does a spring of water bubble out with both fresh water and bitter water?” (James 3:11)

Title Or Not To Title




Okay, I have a wee bit of a rant. This has been a burr under my saddle for years. It's about titles in the body of Christ.

Dancing With Jesus


  
                                             
    
   Our Christian walk is like dancing with Jesus.‭ ‬He leads, we follow. With a soft touch and gentle pressure, He guides us this way and that way. He may even give us a twirl now and then; we turn and then get right back into step with Him. There may even be a 'dip' or two. When these dips come we just hold onto Him more tightly, He pulls us close to Him and if we stumble, He just makes it part of the dance. And as we age, get tired and weak He holds us up and even closer to Him. 

Yeah,‭ ‬dancing with Jesus!

Willing To Die For A Lie


 Each of the 12 apostles left their families and careers, often traveling alone to distant countries, declaring that Jesus died and came back to life. For proclaiming Jesus' resurrection, they were beaten, imprisoned, and many killed in torturous ways. This is how some of them died....

Don't Mess With My Sacred Cow

Well, I’m fixin’ to open a can of worms, step on some religious toes, throw some rocks at some hornets nests or all three. *laughing*

Cheap Grace


 The secularization of Christianity can lead us to become culturally Christian and forego discipleship in the name of grace. Some call it 'cheap grace'. Cheap grace is the enemy of the Church. Cheap grace means the justification of sin without the justification of the sinner, grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ.  Do whatever you want, we're living under grace now.

The Tithe That Ties




 Let’s talk about the misused book of Malachi for a bit...
In Malachi 3:7-11 we find, “(7) Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return? Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. (9) Ye (are) cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, (even) this whole nation. (10) Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that (there shall) not (be room) enough (to receive it). (11) And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.”

It's Not God's Fault


Not everything that happens to you is God's will! I'll say it again...not everything that happens to you is God's will! I hate to say it but bad things happen to good people.

Are You Tempting God




Are you tempting God?
 Matthew 4:5-7 "Then the devil taketh Him up into the holy city, and setteth Him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto Him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give His angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God."

Cookie Cutter Christian


In this world, there are many religions, as there are many fads, fashions, and fancies. Some may operate quite independently. They are ships without destinations, explorers without compasses.

Things I've Learned


 I’ve learned it’s okay to laugh! I have a sense of humor and I believe it's God given. I know God at times looks down at me, shakes His head, laughs and says, “Oh daughter, what am I gonna’ do with you”.

Women Can't Do What

 A basic question must be answered: “What is the overall teaching of the New Testament on a woman’s role in the church?” . . . “What is the big picture about women in ministry?”

The Bible is Just a Book


The bible is just a book, it’s not God! It’s not even the Word of God! Through the bible, I’m introduced to the Word of God.. “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God and the Word became flesh and walked among us." God is the author of grace, not the bible. The bible reveals that grace, but can never give it. My faith is in the One whom the bible reveals, not the bible.

Cracked Pots

  



  In this world we live in, that which is broken is without value. We generally try to avoid conditions of brokenness with our finances, our emotions, and our relationships with others. But carefully note this about God's kingdom, there is a large contrast here between the will of God and the will of man.  And unfortunately, in this world we establish our own pecking order. We tend to place people in social levels based upon their wealth, education, or status. We think we know “our place” and we unconsciously place some people below us in the social order, and a few above us. But the ground is level at the foot of the cross.

Scars


 As I was reading in the book of John chapter 20 verses 19-23, I’m fascinated. I’m fascinated not only by the fact that Jesus again performed another feat of ‘out of this world proportions’ when He walked through not only closed doors but doors that were locked to show Himself to the disciples.
