Hidden For Our Good

I've been reading through the gospels and in Luke 18, I got to verse 34 and I found myself asking, "why?" Jesus had been up front and exceedingly clear with his disciples throughout the book. Yet even when he told them exactly what was about to happen in Jerusalem regarding His passion, they failed to … Continue reading Hidden For Our Good

Reverencing My Husband

The concept of reverencing my husband is relatively new to me. Relatively. And I mean not intellectually new, but practically new, as in I haven't actively and intentionally pursued it before. But in reading and studying scripture and walking through a book with my mentor, I've come to the point of implementing what I've been … Continue reading Reverencing My Husband

“Then, when you know better, do better.”

... I believe this quote is attributed to Maya Angelou. It's also Scriptural. 15Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. 16Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us … Continue reading “Then, when you know better, do better.”
