Manifested Through Miracles

And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda. And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy. And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole:…

Nurturing A Quiet Heart

Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of…

Out of the Comfort Zone

And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple. 2ut Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that…

My Word for the Year: No Rights

Ok, so it’s actually two words, but I’m playing off an article I recently came across in which the writer stated her New Year’s Word for the Year: NO. NO to all of the committees she’s constantly asked to be on. NO to the outside writing jobs she’s asked to do. NO to the projects…

Bold Yet Humble

Change of Plans

Acts 9:1-9 Adversity comes into our lives for God-given reasons. Some are little trials to test our faith, and some so amazingly hard that we can hardly stand it. Yet, God is in control. But at times, it doesn’t feel like it. Think of 9/11. How can anyone even imagine planning something like that? Was…

Is Anything too Hard for God?

But Philip was found at Azotus. And passing through, he preached in all the cities till he came to Caesarea. Acts 8:40 I can’t imagine the feeling that Philip was experiencing. He goes from an amazing mission trip in Samaria, to an amazing God directed trip for a single Ethiopian in the desert, and then,…

Reading. Understanding. Obedience.

Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is desert. So he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge…
