a prologue, an epilogue I have always known myself to be a monster, I tell her. “No, no,” the girl coos, her delicate hands cupping my cheeks, “do not speak such words. A monster is not so terrible a thing to be. To be a monster is to have power. You belong to no city, […]
Blessed Are The Meek
In John 6 Jesus makes stunning declarations to His disciples. He was preaching in the synagogue and at the time He had a growing number of disciples and followers listening to His teaching. The crowd asked Him to perform a sign for them like Moses did when he provided manna from heaven for their ancestors in […]

God prizes women who have a gentle and quiet spirit. That is clearly true from 1 Peter 3:4, but what exactly does that mean? The abusive husband interprets this to mean that his wife is not allowed to confront or resist his abuse (gentle), and he thinks this means that she is to keep her […]
Allow your imagination to paint a vivid mental picture: I’m asleep, dozing silently away and having a bizarre dream about nightmarish cat-people. Eventually, my alarm starts blaring, offering sweet release from cat-James-Corden’s clutches, but also bringing an end to my blissful sleep. However, instead of burying my head deep beneath my pillow in an act of […]

Write the vision and make it plain! If you have a vision, I encourage you to write it out. It sounds simple, but it really is a great exercise of faith. Throughout the years, I’ve always had some sort of notebook or sheet of paper where I wrote my “hopes” and “dreams”. I would put […]
What to see 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of […]

I read recently that only twenty-five percent of Evangelical Christians believe that we have a moral obligation as a nation to care for immigrants who are coming to our country for refuge. Studying the actual words of Jesus can […]
As a Vessel of God As an artist, I’ve always been vocal on how I wanted to use the things that I am good at beside on doing it for worldly things but it has always been my desire to give back to God as my act of worship. He gave me this talent so […]
Throughout this year we have been blessed with the ‘Come Follow Me’ study programme which has allowed us to focus our own gospel learning into the home and to gain a more personal relationship and understanding of our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and how we fit into the grand scheme of it all. It has […]
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up” (James 4:10). In his “Sermon the Mount” (Matthew 5-7), Jesus begins with a series of sayings, known as the Beatitudes. In the third Beatitude, Jesus says, “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5). Meek – what does this mean? […]
Two days before Friday’s much-anticipated Game of Thrones panel — and fresh off scooping up an Emmy nod for ‘outstanding writing’ for Games of Thrones’ Season 8 finale — co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were nowhere to be found, having pulled out of the panel at nearly the 11th hour. But if they were […]
Mondays begin the work week and for me, it begins my 10 mile long “to do list”. I worry about getting it all done. However, I have to remember that my strength comes from God. I can do All things through Him, and so can you!! Happy Monday! Be blessed!!
