My Life As A Sailboat

Get ready…this is a long one. But it’s worth the time if you tend to let your emotions run wild like I sometimes do! The logo that my husband and I chose for our ministry, The Reality Group, is a sailboat. We chose that because it’s a perfect picture of how we feel about serving Continue Reading…

Naked

i don’t have a monopoly on words. i realize that i’m not the only writer in the world. there was a time when that immobilized me. i quit writing because i felt like my words couldn’t hold their own in a world where people can so freely express themselves. but that wasn’t the right reason.

Standing in Victory

  But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. John 21:4 (NASB)   It was Sunday morning and she would normally be in church. But not this Sunday. She was mad at God and tired of pretending to be the perfect Continue Reading…

The comma of grace.

As I’ve written about before, one Easter I got into a bit of a yelling match with a guy in a visor at an Easter egg hunt. The whole thing was exactly how Jesus imagined us honoring that day. We were at my in-laws country club, which always makes me feel a little weird. We’re Continue Reading…

The Virtue of Gratitude

In our modern, hectic society, what once was looked upon as the rule has, woefully, become the exception.  Manners, once, were second-natured.  Today, we look upon an act of kindness, a “second-mile” deed as out of the ordinary or exceptional in nature.    How can it be that in only a generation an act of kindness Continue Reading…

Finishing the Race by Grace

I began to think back to the day when I first became a believer, when I first began running this Continue Reading…

Easter Made the Difference (part 2 of 2)

Edited by: Roxane Day In the last article (part 1 of 2), we saw how God countermanded his statement, “You are dead in your sins,” to the glorious new statement of your condition, “You are alive in Christ!” Jesus had to teach that it was impossible for them (and us) to merit eternal life by Continue Reading…

Easter Made the Difference (part 1 of 2)

Edited by: Roxane Day God is the Supreme Authority, Commander in Chief, the One who gets to make the rules—or break them—as the case may dictate. He even has the prerogative of countermanding His previous commands. For example: His most dramatic, gracious change for Believers was changing the declaration of fact, “You’re dead in your Continue Reading…

Wrestling Rest

I started wrestling in junior high school. I learned quickly that it’s not easy to walk out on a mat all alone and wrestle another person. It’s easy for fear and panic to get the best of you. This being said, I did okay those first years with a few basic moves and brute strength. Continue Reading…

Safety

I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!” For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. – Psalm 91:2-4 (NASB) Everything in Atlanta seems to be coming to Continue Reading…
