You are His Favorite Child!

You are His Favorite Child!

  Growing up. I was the favorite child.  Everybody said so - unless they said my sister was the favorite.  As a mother, each of my children has been my favorite child at some point.  As parents, we try hard not to show favoritism and make sure each child feels special, accepted, and loved.  Dr. Ellen Libby describes why it is important for each child to believe they are favored.  "These children believe that they are adored more than anyone else in the family, that they have won the quintessential prize of being the most cared for in the family...

Our Perception of God

Our Perception of God

  Two beliefs have the most effect on our lives. How we see God, and how we think He sees us. Our perception of God develops as children and evolves over our lifetime.  God never changes. Each day brings a new revelation about who He is, and our understanding of Him changes.  As we read the Bible and pray, the Word of God forms our perceptions of Him.  As we fellowship with others, their perception influences our own. This perception sets the perimeters for our relationship with Him. It influences our faith and how we pray.  It plays a part...

Serendipity: the Favor of God

Serendipity! When I first saw today word, I smiled. I love saying this word; it just make me happy to say it. Serendipity!                                                       Serendipity!                                                                 Serendipity!!!  But as I sat down to write about it, I realized I wasn't sure what it was.  So, I grabbed a cup of coffee and did some research.  It was serendipitous what I found! When I first started thinking about this, I was concerned.  Is the concept of serendipity even biblical?  As I prayed about it, Holy Spirit showed me a few examples of serendipity in the Bible. Ruth just happened to glean...

Awestruck by Me

Have you ever looked into a mirror and thought WOW, I'm amazing!  How did that happen? Ephesians 2:10 says we are God's masterpiece.  A masterpiece is a work of outstanding artistry, skill, or workmanship.  Seeing a masterpiece can leave you awestruck.  That is what happened to David.  He tells us about it in Psalms 139.    For You shaped me, inside and out.     You knitted me together in my mother’s womb long before I took my first breath.  I will offer You my grateful heart, for I am Your unique creation, filled with wonder and awe.     You have approached even the smallest details with...
