Women: Defending Against the Man-Eater

Be sober, vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour. I Peter 5:8 Dear mom,  does this concern you? Does it give you a heavy heart? It does for me. With the announcement of new and more horrifying headlines each day, I often feel overwhelmed at the task of defending our families against such a horrible…

Women: Is Anything Too Hard for God?

Have you ever lied to God? Laughed in His face? Complained, murmured, or even took His promises for granted? It’s been a long time since our dear sister Sara walked this earth, but women sure haven’t changed much. We still battle with disappointment, anger, hopelessness… all the same things that Sarah battled. Yeah, so she cooked over an open fire and lived in a tent… but…

He wants ALL of us, and He wants to…

Women: Surrender Part II

This path of surrender is not easy. In fact, once you do surrender you will more than likely face battles. In my life, after I surrendered I returned to my “Christian” school to face ridicule for living for the Lord. I lost friends, but I had to learn how to stand for Him right away… Some face even deeper trials. …“Betty Scott grew up in china, where her parents were…

Women: Surrender Part III

Were the whole realm of nature mine – that were a present far too small – Love so amazing, so divine – Demands my life, my soul, my all! Isaac Watts Sobering words… What are the implications of the Love of God and why do they demand my all? Is it not true as we studied last week – that we are HIS whether we acknowledge it or not. He is our Creator, and…
