A House Undivided

If a card were to be place in a book, everything the book was subjected to would be experienced by the card. Leave the book in the rain, and the card gets wet. Throw the book in a fire, and the card burns. Nail the book to a tree, and the card is pierced. Take Continue Reading…

Cease Striving

  I was reading Psalm 46:10: "Anabel, cease striving and know that I am God." (I put my name in these scriptures that are special to me. It makes that scripture mine. It is relevant. It is real.) He has knocked the ball into my court, hasn’t He, which means that it’s now my move. Continue Reading…

Where Does God Live?

When we bought our first house a few years ago, we went from renting to owning. Technically the bank owns a big chunk of it, but just go with me here. We went from caring a little about taking care of our apartment to caring A LOT about taking care of our house. When something Continue Reading…

Marching Confidently to the Drumbeat of Grace

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Rom. 8:38-39).

This may include Continue Reading…

We Need Each Other

How important is it to be in the Body of Christ in treacherous times? Or asked another way: How important are your hands if you take a tumble? I fell down the steps of the museum the other day in front of 15-20 middle school girls who were on a field trip. I am certain Continue Reading…

In Your Hand

But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord, I say, "You are my God." My times are in Your hand.– Psalm 31: 14-15a God showed me something very early one morning that really helped me. I had—quite some time ago—"claimed" this declaration of faith in Psalm 31 for some beloved people in my Continue Reading…

Hebrews 5:14 says, “Solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good from evil.” Once your spiritual eyes have been opened by the Holy Spirit to understand the powerful truth of your identity in Christ, you’re going to be surprised to discover that many verses in the Continue Reading…
