Your Decision to Give Up Power Is Costing You

The decision to turn your power over to someone else is a costly one. Let me show you how to take it back! We don’t intentionally make the decision to hand our power over to someone else, but many of us do it and without even realizing it.  Let me give you an example: The other

Who Gets You….Really?

You may be surprised at your response to this question (or maybe not). I played hooky from church this past Sunday.  I don’t normally make a habit of doing this because I believe that making time to honor God by visiting His iconic place of worship, that place which symbolizes the “gathering” that we should do

Yet Another One of Those Defining Moments

My husband and I recently traveled to Birmingham, AL to attend the funeral of his oldest brother’s wife who succumbed to cancer at the tender age of 59.  I had not had the pleasure of meeting this fine woman, but by all accounts witnessed at this homegoing celebration, she was truly a wonderful woman who

What Makes You Any Different Than Moses?

I am constantly reminded through my scripture reading that our purpose is not an easy undertaking.  Anyone who fulfilled God’s purpose for their lives as indicated throughout the Bible DID NOT have an easy time of it. What makes us any different? Here’s just one example:  One “fiery” day, Moses was in the presence of

The Vast Difference Between a Gaze and a Fleeting Glance

I Cherish  the time I devote to studying the Bible, particularly the Old Testament. Why? Because it  is the foundation from which our boundaries were established.  The lessons learned from this time, and application in our current lives yield blessings beyond measure. Here’s just one example: In Numbers 21:6, there was a plague of snakes
