My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2-4 When we pray for strength, Christ gives us chances to lean on Him and grow our faith. When we commit to digging a well of promise, salvation, etc. we are committing to the struggles and sweat that must take place. Digging a … More Persevere. Do not lose hope.
Last night, I was out of town, so I watched the live stream for The River. I’m glad I did. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 Quench not the Spirit… Quench: to be suppressed or extinguished. The Greek word … More Dwell…
By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.

I was able to visit the River last night, so here’s another post sharing what I learned and wanted to share from The River. Last night’s lesson was on Breakthrough. We are the vessel of the Holy Spirit and He is the Living Water welling up inside those who believe in Him and submit to … More Wells of Life
This Passover season, it’s easy to feel like you are inadequately observing Passover as we are commanded. As a “Gentile” Christian, I have heard many times the common concern: are we supposed to observe the feast as well? I was shown a video that I enjoyed explaining it is not merely about the rituals but … More Attitude over Action
The church is being divided. Satan prowls around as a lion, devouring the church. Separating, dividing, distracting, and singling us out so we may fall into our weaknesses. The modern-day religion of Christianity is working. The Coexist and the ecumenical movements are working. The True Bride of Christ is not standing. We are compromising with … More Fitly joined together…
I’m sure you all heard of the Nashville shooting last Monday. I have some thoughts I’d like to share. I won’t try to dig into the motive; however, I will show the devastation this event has helped our country spiral into. Let’s begin. On Monday, March 27, 2023, female Audrey Hale entered an elementary school … More Big Threats. Deceived Minds.
In my last post, I talked about wading deeper and surrendering to God’s compassionate mercy so that we may, in turn, fully love others. Oh, what a blessing it is to love others as Christ has loved us: unconditionally, unreservedly, and even in the face of adversity – to be a shoulder and arm for … More Slave to a Mindset
