When Yes Means Yes

“But most of all, my brothers and sisters, never take an oath, by heaven or earth or anything else. Just say a simple yes or no, so that you will not sin and be condemned.” ‭‭James‬ ‭5:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Let your yes be “yes”, and your no be “no”. Speak as a person with conviction, assured…

Suffering

“Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.” ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬ I have several devotions that I read, and by an awesome coincidence, the readings from today all dealt with the concept of suffering.

Go ahead and weep

Who I Am In the Lord

I wrote this a while back, but it’s always good to be reminded. I am a woman of fire, and my heart is emblazoned with His name.  Everyday I burn with longing to be with my God; everyday I yearn for His truth.  I live with a passion for life lived to the full, accepting…
