Your Season Will Change

  Ecclesiastes 3: 1 “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens” Have you been going through a rough time in your life?  Are doors closing in on you and not opening?  You are not alone!  During your life walk with Christ you will face many trials and rough patches that you feel you didn’t deserve. You see things closing when you clearly prayed for an opening. Closed doors are a blessing but you don’t know that when it’s happening to you. You may have prayed, waited and expected God to answer a dream …

Consider It All Joy

  James 1: 2 “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds” These days we are facing many ungodly acts of people in our world. We see the worship of self become more prevalent and the times speak for themselves don’t they? Many are perishing without knowing who God is and what Jesus did for them. This is a sense of urgency in life that you place in your heart and mind: the message of the cross to those who are perishing. 1 Corinthians 1: 18 “For the message of the cross is …

Old Testament with Gospel Lenses

We live in the most connected age thanks to the internet and social media. Yet this age is the most disconnected from the Bible than many have ever seen in their lifetime. Despite the fact that eighty-four percent of average American households have more than one Bible, only thirty-seven percent of them read their Bible daily, according to Lifeway research. Recently the BarnaGroup issued their “State of the Bible 2019.” It gives us an even greater glimpse into how God’s Word is used or unused in our world today. According to the survey, Forty-eight percent of the American population is disengaged from God’s …

Your Ministry Reach

        If you have a Christian blog, a website, social media, or any other means of delivering your faith in Jesus Christ, your witness can be seen world-wide.  The internet reaches many more than you realize.  If a country has internet availability, your words and videos can be viewed. You have an opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. My Journey of Faith Ministries recently had the privilege of sharing some of our “Tell Your Story” videos with a women’s conference in the Congo.  These precious women yearn for more about Jesus and how He works …

Qualified

In the past several years I have learned so much about how to become the person God intended me to be…how to live out my faith and what that means. This is such a process and I am still learning so much, but I love the idea of passing on what God is using to shape me to help others. One of the biggest lessons seems so simple but it has really changed the way I look at how to live out my faith. God has given us all gifts and talents to enable us to put our faith into …

What Jesus Began, We Get to Continue

  What Jesus Began, We Get to Continue       “In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven…” Acts 1: 1-2a Luke’s former book is the gospel of Luke. The book of Acts is essentially Luke, Part 2. It picks up where the gospel of Luke ends – -with the final days of Jesus on earth. The earthly ministry of Jesus lasted three years.  During those three years, He invested in the disciples.  He taught them.  He lived the truth because …
