I do not know what it is, but I lack self confidence when it comes to certain things. I try. I have people in my life who tell me to have confidence or compliment me on things. But it is still a struggle. It’s easy to fall into that trap and not feel like God can use you. That is …

I was going to write off of my notes from my Pastor’s message yesterday. It was really good. I probably will go more into his message tomorrow. There are a couple of things he said yesterday, that I want to quote, and talk about today.“We get in trouble when we compare our entire movie to others highlight reel.” ~ Jason …

Easter Sunday’s message at my church was really good. This post is going to be from my notes.When life hasn’t worked out like you thought it would, it can deaden our souls. Sometimes we are just making it. In the chaos, we find ourselves in a void. We also tend to hide if things aren’t going like we think they …

Today is Easter Sunday here in the United States. There is one last place that Jesus bled that I want to tell you about today. When Jesus was on the cross, and after He spoke telling God that He commended His Spirit to Him, the Roman soldiers had a way of making sure the person was dead. They took a …

When the Roman soldiers finally got Jesus to carry His cross through the streets, He had been beaten so much that you could hardly tell who He was. I remember watching the Passion of the Christ movie in the theater years ago. Someone said, “No wonder it didn’t take Him long to die on the cross, they had already beaten Him …

In the book of Genesis, chapter 3, after Adam and Eve sinned, God explains their new way of life. Adam worked the land before, but it was easy and everything was peachy. Now God said, in verse 18, “It will produce thistles and thorns for you, and you will eat the plants of the field.” Thistles and thorns are bad. …

The next place Jesus bled was the post where they flogged Him. This is what a flog looked like in Roman times. There were bone and metal pieces on it. A whipping would have hurt, but flogging was far worse. The ends of the whip actually tore out flesh when the whip was pulled back.This type of punishment was used …

Since this is the week before Easter, I wanted to take each day this week to talk about it.In Luke 22: 44 Jesus’ prayer time in the Garden is recorded by Luke. Jesus knew that He was going to the cross to die for everyone’s sins, and He was …
