7.16.17 Prayer Prompt: Circle of Life (and Choices)

PRAYER PROMPT ••• If I refer to the “Circle of Life,” you may immediately begin humming the song from “The Lion King,” and picture Simba being lifted in the air.  There’s truth in that phrase – there is a circle of life.  The spring arrives every year, followed by summer, fall, then winter.  The sun rises.  The sun sets.  Then it does it again.  There’s … Continue reading 7.16.17 Prayer Prompt: Circle of Life (and Choices)

7.5.17 Prayer Prompt: Always There

PRAYER PROMPT ••• In January 2016, my husband’s grandfather turned 100 years old and his birthday celebration fell the weekend of a major blizzard that shut down a good chunk of NC (where we live), as well as VA, WV, and KY… pretty much all the way to our destination in Cincinnati.  We drove through it, but that 7 1/2 hour car ride took almost … Continue reading 7.5.17 Prayer Prompt: Always There

6.13.17 Prayer Prompt: Hand the Sword to God

PRAYER PROMPT ••• The battles we fight don’t always come with bloodshed and war.  We fight emotional battles.  Personal challenges.  Arguments with family and friends.  Battles rage in us and around us and sometimes, we get too tired to fight.  The thing is, God doesn’t want us to fight!  1 Peter 5:7 says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about … Continue reading 6.13.17 Prayer Prompt: Hand the Sword to God

5.15.17 Prayer Prompt: Grow in Christ

PRAYER PROMPT ••• When Christians are young in their faith, the scripture compares them to babies.  1 Peter 2:2 says, “Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation.”  This comparison is important.  Babies are dependent upon their mothers for every need.  Similarly, young Christians must be dependent on the Word, in order to feed their … Continue reading 5.15.17 Prayer Prompt: Grow in Christ

4.15.17 Prayer Prompt: In It, Not Of It

PRAYER PROMPT ••• The other day, I had a conversation with a friend about living a Christian life in this world.  The world views Christians as pious hypocrites who hate and judge everyone.  I’m not saying there aren’t a few out there who scream “righteous judgment” in the name of Christ, but that’s not the norm. Whether those people are true Christians — I don’t … Continue reading 4.15.17 Prayer Prompt: In It, Not Of It

What’s In a Title? Part 1: Christians

For many of us — a title defines our purpose.  We get a job, and we assume a role.  The title we’re given is a reflection of our professional selves.  However, we all know that titles don’t just apply to our professional careers.  Speaking for myself, in addition to my work title, I’m also wife, mom, daughter, friend, and a Christian.  It’s the latter title on … Continue reading What’s In a Title?
