All dressed up AND a place to go!

When I was growing up, my friends and I would play “dress up” just about every free moment we found. Feather boas, dress shoes with way-too-high-heels, pink blush and electric blue eye shadow were just a few accessories we loved to wear all day and all night. My mom, who is quite the seamstress, even…

We Die Daily

2 Corinthians 4:7-12 “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

And on earth peace …

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” (Luke 2:14). This is what the heavenly host proclaimed to the shepherds to announce Christ’s arrival.

A Faith Unfeigned …

1Timothy 1:5 “Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned.” When I read the phrase “the end of the commandment”, it makes me think of the phrase “the fulfillment of the law”. Who was “the fulfillment of the law”? Jesus Christ…

The Apple of His Eye

One of my favorite Bible phrases of all time is “the apple of God’s eye.” Every time I’m feeling downhearted, I should just think of this phrase. It’s actually found in many places throughout the Bible. My favorite verse with this phrase in it is Psalm 17:8: “Keep me as the apple of the eye,…

Peace In God

I recently came across a Bible verse that has really spoken to my heart. It’s one of those verses that I’ve probably read over time and time again, but it seems to have a special, new meaning to me at this point in my life. I hope it encourages you as it continues to inspire…
