Marks of the True Christian
Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not...
Don’t believe the lie that says “I’m just not a relational person”. We were all created to be relational. Some just choose to operate from hurts & woundings.
God has designed us to learn patterns of relating in our family of origin. In...– Cloud & Townsend
"Boys vs. Men" Wisdom from a Godly Man
Boys want to be noticed, men want to be respected. Boys want the “buzz” of life, men want fulfillment. Boys are self-centered, men take initiative for the benefit of others. Boys want a temporary escape, men wanting lasting satisfaction. Boys want romantic love, men want to lay down their rights in the relationship. Boys want greatness, men want lasting joy. Boys want human...

They are unable to relate to safe people because safe people encourage adultness.
Bothas, allow me to place a nugget of wisdom in your spirit: Unless you have every aspect of your life together (emotionally, physically, spiritually), you have NO right to judge & discount/dismiss a sista by her perceived faults. Whatever list you have…trust me, a woman that has her stuff together has one too. For example, a woman is looking for a leader. Contrary to these false...

SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me. Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me. Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me, Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me. Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us. Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us. Melt us, mold us, fill us, use us, Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on us.
May the Mind of Christ My Savior
May the mind of Christ my Savior Live in me from day to day, By His love and pow’r controlling All I do and say. May the Word of Christ dwell richly In my heart from hour to hour, So that all may see I triumph Only through His pow’r. May the peace of Christ my Savior Rule my life in every thing, That I may be calm to comfort Sick and sorrowing. May the love of...
“Living unselfishly will likely not cost us our lives, but it will cost. It will cost time and money. It will cost becoming interested in the interests, concerns, and needs of others. And it will cost in learning to be considerate of the emotions and feelings of others.”
One day when heaven was filled with His praises One day when sin was as black as could be Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin Dwelt among men my example is He The Word became flesh And the light shined among us His glory revealed One day they led Him up Calv’ry’s mountain One day they nailed Him to die on a tree Suffering anguish despised and rejected Bearing our sins my...

As I drive around Memphis, with my child’s feet firmly planted (& sometimes kicking) in the back of my seat…my mind begins to ponder the apology letter that I’ll write my father for all the negative things I said about his perceived irrational behavior whenever I firmly planted my feet (& sometimes kicking) on the back of his seat while he was driving.
I’m battling bitterness. I need to extend grace…but I’m finding that hard to do with this bitterness in the way. I’m being double-minded. I know what the Lord has called me to (grace), but I don’t want to be the only one that’s doing what’s “right”. It’s not fair. And if you tell me “life isn’t fair” I may fight...
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
I’ve sang this song for years and never realized that this hymn has SEVEN verses! I was listening to a rendition by Page CXVI that had some different lyrics, so I looked the song up and was struck by the depth of the lyrics. There is great power and strength that can be drawn from this song. I was thoroughly blessed. Praise to the Lord, the Almighty Praise to the Lord, the Almighty,...
