God our Mother

God is our Mother! As we celebrate our Mother’s let us acknowledge the Feminine beauty of our Heavenly Mother.  God is 100% Male and God is 100% Female according to scripture. As we allow God, through the Spirit to Mother us, then we can truly grasp the beauty of “Mother’s Day!” Scripture: Isaiah 49:15, Isaiah…

Running the Race of LIFE

When we look at other people who have what we want, we tend to think they were lucky or don’t like them. Or both. Most of the time, the people were not lucky, but they lived their life with consistency. Look at almost any type of successful person; you find that success leaves clues. Successful…

The Best is Yet to Come

What is Heaven really like? Does it even exist, and if so, what is it like there? This is a question that many Christians and non-Christians are wondering.

Lessons from the Life of Peter

2 Peter 3:10-11 challenges us to consider the time in which we are living and acknowledge that this earthly life will soon pass away. In awareness of this reality the question is postulated by Peter, “What type of lives should we be living?”  Good question.  Does Peter have any experience with this transformative question? Did…

How Long

In our spiritual journey we often are confronted with the Lord asking us, “how long before you completely surrender your life to me. If I am truly God, then serve me. But if you have other “gods” in your life, I can’t really be your God fully.” I want to explore that question through the…
