FAITH CAN MULITPLY YOUR LITTLE INTO MUCH

Continuing to grow in Jesus, especially after knowing Him years upon years, is a beautiful and beggarly feat. It’s a long-ward journey, often marked by highs and lows, by which we follow Jesus into the depths upon depths of an ongoing intimate relationship, conforming more into His likeness, and walking out a life of Spirit-driven...

LORD OF THE PARTY

I remember first coming to Christ and not believing that grace was real. It sounded wonderful coming from the mouth of my pastor. The concept was stuff of great stories, but in real life, I wasn’t so comfortable receiving it. To one who had convinced herself that approval must be earned, it was awkward. I...

MY MOTHER’S LEGACY

Before anything else has been said, I know that my Mama would want me to preface that she is not perfect. She has made mistakes, she has failed, and she attributes anything else to the grace of God.  But, what my Mama will not tell you about herself is that she is an amazing woman,...

YOU ARE THE IMAGE OF GOD TO ME

You wouldn’t think staring into another person’s eyes for one minute would evoke so much in so little time. I was sitting in on a Biblical Ethics class this past week at the Tennessee Women’s Prison. The assignment was simple. We were asked to partner up with the person to the right of us and...

BEHOLD THE LAMB

It was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 1 Peter 1:18-19 Last week I ugly cried on stage in front of hundreds of...
