Fruit From Root Issues

By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them. Matthew 7:16-20 (NIV)  Unhealed wounds create the perfect opportunity for seeds to be sown that create bad fruit many years later. We will reap what we have sown. One tiny […]

Here is the Answer to Rejection

Have you ever felt the pain of rejection?  Most people have. Jesus also experienced rejection from His own people. “He came to His own people and his own received him not.” John 1:11 He felt the pain of rejection from every relationship. “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:34 On the cross, He cried… “Father, why have you forsaken me?”  Matthew 27:46 He felt all of our pain at that moment. However, His last words were “It is finished.” John 19:30 Our acceptance was completely paid for by Jesus on the cross.   After suffering on […]

Deal With Offenses by Magnifying The Lord

“Oh, Magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.” Psalm 34:3 Have you noticed the increase in the opportunities to be offended? Even after 25 years of marriage to my husband, I sometimes get offended by what he says.

I believe in the day we are living, the days prior to the return of the Lord, there will be a greater pull than ever before to be offended. Jesus taught us […]

Place Your Cares on Him, and Rest in the Lord

“Cast your burdens upon the Lord” (Psalms 55:22). Casting a burden upon the Lord means you turn the burden over and release it to Him. Every burden has a weight, and some are heavier than others. The Lord knows we can only carry a burden for a short amount of time before we begin to slip and fall under the weight of it. God calls us to bear one another’s burdens only long enough to bring them to Him. Remember, the Lord will not put more on you than you can carry. If you are weary, it is time to […]

Who Are You?

You may look to your place of birth and the family you grew up in to find out who you are.  Whether you were born into a rich home, or born into poverty, it doesn’t really matter. Your family background does not define who you are. Your family background is simply the ground in which you were planted. This is why we are referred to as “Oaks of Righteousness” in Isaiah 61. Now, who are you? As a little girl, I would go to visit my grandfather every summer.  He lived in a big beautiful home in the mountains, a […]
