A wise man once said to me "the more I study history the harder it is to be a patriot." America the beautiful, built on biblical principles, and the backs of slaves. Manifesting our destiny from New England to the California coast, desecrating most Native civilizations that...

Let your unfailing love surround us, LORD, for our hope is in you alone. Psalm 33:22
You can feel burdens of stress, of strained relationships, and of crammed schedules each day. You speak of feeling “weighted down” at times as challenges pile up, and as you’re weighted down by fear, worries...

Good News –
What is “good news”?
Are there not many
By Jesus blood.
My sins forgiven.
Bought back for God.
My Lord –
My Savior God
Gave His life for me.
In Him abide.
Set Free –
From sin’s control.
Holy life living.
Christ made me...

Based off Romans 1 NIV
God, our creator,
Has made himself plain,
Through all his creation,
He revealed His plan.
All of His virtues
Were made clear to all.
Mankind, without excuse,
Now choosing to fall.
Godless and wicked
Face God’s holy wrath.
Through One Man
Romans 5:12-14 ESV
Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. Yet death reigned from...
1 Peter 2:1-3 ESV
So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.
Another name for the gospel of Jesus...
Galatians 5:1 NIV
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
Jesus Christ died that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. This is the essence of the gospel message. He died on that...

Based off Psalm 36
You speak words of love to me,
But your actions deny them.
Your eyes, full of adultery,
Testify against you.
Promises made, but not kept,
Words spoken, often in jest,
Hardhearted and prideful unrest,
Put your Lord to the test.
How are we to love one another? What should that look like? What does it mean to love others “as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us”?
“Follow God's example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant...
“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Eph. 4:1-3 ESV
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 ESV
Over the course of the forty-five years of my marriage to my husband, he was not free in Christ, although he claimed to be. He claimed to be a follower of Christ, or I would...
What does it mean to be “free in Christ”? Truly it means our sins are forgiven and we are no longer under condemnation. Amen. And, if we are in Christ, by faith in him, we, thus, have the hope of eternal life with God in glory. But, is there more to this freedom than that?
The Lord Jesus led me...
Do you ever feel like what you have done is so bad that you could never be forgiven? Are you afraid to tell the truth for fear you will be rejected? Or, out of fear of other consequences? Do you remain in sinful addiction because you have given up hope of ever changing?
The Lord Jesus led me to...
What is love? It can be many different things, depending on what type of love we are talking about. There is erotic or romantic love, and then there is friendship (companionship or brotherly) love, and I believe there is also a special kind of love a parent has for a child, and then there is...
In 2014, I tried my hand at some short devotionals where I spoke them, and I put the words into a Power Point Presentation, and then made them into videos, and I posted them on YouTube. I had forgotten about them until I was going through some of my older writings today. So, I am going to share...
If you are in Christ Jesus, by faith, how long have you known him? And, do you really know him? Do you know what he requires of you, you who have believed in him? And, are you living what you know, by his power?
So many say they know God, that they believe in Jesus Christ, and that they are in...
(An allegory from real life)
About three weeks ago, my husband and I each had to have a crown removed from a tooth in our mouths, and a new crown each was put on order. While we waited for the new (permanent) crowns to arrive, we were each given a temporary crown, which was not as good as the...
When you hear the phrase, “The grace of God,” what comes to mind? What is grace, in fact? And, if you accept God’s grace into your life, what does that mean? What does that look like exactly?
The Lord Jesus led me to read Titus 2:11-14 (ESV).
“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing...
