Hello Friend,

Welcome home to my online adventure, I am so glad that you have found me, among this sea of great sites in this world-wide web. I do hope you will stay a while and return often, I would love to have you as part of my online family in Christ.

The writings I share here are my heart and soul poured out in the most public forum. Yes, it scares me (and I initially ran), but I truly believe that this is what God is asking of me, my cross if you will. Therefore, I have made a determined choice to trust and obey Jesus, regardless of the fear, persecution, or whatever, this world and/or the enemy may throw at me.

Strictly speaking, there are careful and sound interpretations for scripture, but a certain degree of latitude is safe in personal application. It is important to remember however that even if God speaks to you in a certain way through a certain passage that doesn’t make it the “right” interpretation or official doctrine. But if God has used it to help you and to open your understanding it has validity so long as it doesn’t contradict the gospel or go against biblical principles. My writings are of this sort they are personal insights for personal application and subjective in nature. I have read and studied the Bible enough to have a basic foundation. Also, I borrow in part from sermon topics and Christian reading for the past and present. I hope I do not error too grievously.

This blog and all my writings are for the Lord, I truly hope to be His instrument in this process. I am always learning and growing, as I hope I continue always in my spiritual growth. God has been and continues to be so good to me.

 

 My Prayer for You:

Heavenly Father, bless my readers my friends, I pray that You will speak to their hearts and fill them with Your peace and joy. I pray that my obedience to You will aid them to “grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18). Lord, help us to grow in a greater understanding of You. For Your word says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10) Lord God, give us hearts to praise you through everything this life brings our way, because we know that You work “…all things work together for good to them that love You…” (Rom 8:28) Give us the courage and strength to trust you even when we can’t see what You could possibly do in “this” situation. May we always praise, and trust in You, let us not lose sight of Your ability. May our wills become in sync with Your will.

In the name of Jesus, I pray Amen!

What you can expect from me:

My plan is to do one post every other week, and one book review each month. Writing as God leads, I expect a lot of it will be closely related to what God is teaching me, I am also open to suggestions, so feel free to contact me. I will also do my very best to reply to as many comments as I possibly can, obviously, this will depend on the growth of this site. My hope is that those of you who come regularly will also reply to comments as you are led by the Lord; Please let’s all prayerfully consider what we say, this is to build up not tear down, comment with love. On occasion I may post something else that is on my heart, if it is not relating to our growth in Christ, it will be an additional post for that month. I also, will be posting a scripture for each week to Face Book, I would love to have you follow me, I will make a focused effort to keep these scriptures relevant to the last post or the upcoming post.

 Testimonies:

I have a page called “Testimonies” my testimony is there and I hope that you will take the time to read it. I believe that our strongest witness is our testimony along with how we live our life each day. Writing out my testimony was not only challenging both emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically, It was also an amazing blessing. God truly blessed me through the process. So, I would challenge you to put your testimony on paper, and if you are comfortable I would love to add your testimony to my testimony page, I do believe they can help others. We all live diverse lives and we each respond to experiences differently, there are people out there more like you than me, and it may be your testimony speaks to their heart where mine couldn’t. If you would like me to share your testimony please email it to me.

From the bottom of my heart I thank you for stopping by, I hope you will stay a while and come back again soon!

If you wish to subscribe you will receive email alerts when there is a new post, I email once a week only, unless there is a very special reason.

Have a blessed day,

Debra
