The Ultimate Identity Theft

I went on a run this morning in the blistering heat (ran through the tree-shaded historical section of town and hit every front yard sprinkler I could find). I passed one house and thought, “Oh, they’re going to have a yard sale.”With the next glance, I realized the items piling around the house and creeping across the… Read more »

Our Adventure

We are in a battle that much of the body of believers ignores, or doesn’t understand. If Paul tells us that our battle isn’t against flesh and blood, but against principalities and rulers in the heavenly realm, what does that mean to us (Eph. 6:12)? If we could see the enemy physically and in action,… Read more »

Our Adversary

I wonder if we’d read our Bible differently if it were subtitled: The Demon Slayer and Joy Releaser’s Manual? Did you know you are in a battle? An unseen battle, but one with very high stakes. Have you learned to recognize when your adversary speaks to you? Whispering lies and pushing buttons that send you… Read more »

A Love Deficit

Do you believe your sin, whether it be lying, gossiping, fear, anger or control issues, is the main problem in your life? What if I told you there is a greater problem? A love deficit. The main struggles in my life have revolved around fear and control, and a wee bit of rebellion. And then… Read more »

The Love Jesus Has For You

Do you know how much Jesus loves you? We’ve been told that He loves us so much He died on a cross for us. But that is so huge, so unfathomable, we don’t easily grasp the depth of love in it. I want to tell you how much He loves you. He watched you as you… Read more »

How to Experience God

How do we eat from good fruit? I see many good-intentioned Christians working so hard to have godly behavior. Is it possible they are eating from their own tree? The tree of good intentions and hard work? Striving to conform their behavior to the Word of God, rather than being transformed? The other morning as… Read more »

Letting the Old Nature Stay Dead

“People live in their old nature, not understanding the new.” God spoke that to me today as He reminded me to press into Him during a battle. He said, “Lies are going to be flying your way. Take authority and cast them down. Laugh at them. The enemy is a liar and a false accuser…. Read more »

Stepping Into Peace

I’ve been living with a difficult situation. Feeling the brunt of rejection. The backlash of fervent disagreement. Parenting is not for the faint of heart. God is the answer to all life’s problems, right? Or is He? He says He is the Prince of Peace. Our redeemer, our sustenance, our reward and inheritance. Our provision…. Read more »

Loving Instead of Judging

Who are the wicked? Who are the lost? I’ve been mulling over this question for a couple of weeks. Pondering Jesus’ behavior so I can better walk in those shoes of His. But then I started thinking about Him rebuking the Pharisees (John 8:37-54). I know a handful of people who carry a pretty heavy… Read more »

Laughing With God

Have you ever heard God laugh? Do you want to? Do you want to experience the sweet sound of utter delight that comes from a parent thoroughly in love with His child? You. Or the fierce sound of a Warrior laughing in the face of His enemies when we dwell in the shelter of the Most High (Psalm… Read more »
