Step two

24th February 2015 | 0 Comments

God goes to great lengths to reach us, to love us, to be in relationship with us. There is no doubt of that when one takes a real look at Jesus. And yet, at times he still surprises me with the tools he uses to wake me up and reveal his truth to me in […]

Biblical Women Reflecting His Image (part 4)

22nd February 2015 | 0 Comments

How could we talk about women of the Bible who have reflected God’s relational qualities, and not include Martha and Mary, the precious sisters of the New Testament who shared a special bond with Jesus. I am particularly fond of these two women for many reasons. One reason is because I see myself in both […]

Biblical Women Reflecting His Image (part 3)

As I have studied the relational qualities God has infused into the very make-up of women, several examples from the Bible have stood out to me. One of my favorites is Ruth. Naomi was a foreigner in the land of Moab, an Israelite who with her family, had left the land of blessing, in search […]

Yellow Roses

I’m not really much of a flower person. But I will admit that I’ve always loved yellow roses.

In His Image (Part 2)

“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever…” This morning I was listening to a message by Pete Briscoe, and he read this verse from Psalm 118. He purposefully misread it saying, “His love endures a really long time…” to make the point that God’s love cannot be measured by […]

Women in the Image of God–Embracing our Identity

11th February 2015 | 0 Comments

As I prepared to teach at our church’s women’s retreat last week, I spent a lot of time journaling and talking with spiritual mentors and friends about this topic. Teaching always works in me the greatest education.  Thus, I have a plethora of notes, thoughts and experiences to share on this issue that God has […]

In His Image

8th February 2015 | 0 Comments

Yesterday had the joy of teaching at our Ladies’ Retreat for our church. The theme was Created In His Image–Embracing our Identity, Living our Calling. As I prepared for the day, I found a depth of meaning in the phrase “In His image” that I had never seen before. What a compelling and almost frightening […]
