What is True Obedience

This video blog is really a continuation of yesterday’s video. I had this still on my heart but felt it best to divide up into two separate blogs.

I touched yesterday on decision making and purpose. They really are connected and we can’t follow or find our purpose without proper decision making.

Also yesterday, I talked about humility and that was the beginning of the ability to make right decisions. But humility isn’t a once and one kind of thing.

Today in this video blog I talk about true obedience and how to achieve it.

Having A Tight Friendship With God

 February 24, 2012

This week I’ve been writing about the gift of faith. On Wednesday I wrote about how God has given us each a gift or portion of faith for our own benefit. On Monday I wrote about the Gift of Faith and its ministerial benefit for the common good and the difference between that gift and our personal gift of faith.

Today I thought it only fitting to write about the father of faith, Abraham. I think you may be surprised at some things that never occurred to you before.

Monday Meditations – 2 Corinthians 3:17-18

I’m not talking about the late nights with baby colic or high fevers. Or stretching the finances for one more dance costume or baseball bat.

 

I’m not talking about the first time they leave the house driving on their own on a Friday night or going on a date with someone you just barely know.

 

I’m not talking about when they leave home and move out to college or their own apartment, leaving your nest empty.

My Life As A Pot

 July 15, 2011

I’ve been writing a lot lately about God’s love for us and how we should reject condemnation because it is never from God. It is always from the enemy or our own insecurities. This type of writing is encouraging and uplifting and causes us to move closer to the Lord.

Some of my posts have talked about being yoked with Him and letting Him lead and guide you through life which removes so much of the stress regarding bad choices and wrong decisions. How wonderfully freeing this is! Continue reading
