8.5.2020 – The “Little Things” are “Big Things”

I’m realizing that…often the things we think matter, really don’t matter as much as the things we think are “too little” to matter. (oops…is that a tongue twister? 😆) There are things that we think, don’t matter…. and they actually really DO matter, a whole lot. “Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful… Read More 8.5.2020 – The “Little Things” are “Big Things”

8.1.2020 – This goes out to the “Black Sheep”

This morning as I was sitting here, I thought of the term, “black sheep.” This term means, “a member of a family or group who is regarded as a disgrace to them.” “In the English language, black sheep is an idiom used to describe an odd or disreputable member of a group, especially within a family.

There is a battle raging… …and it’s all about “the voice.” My voice, your voice, the voice of the body of Christ as a whole. What happens when the enemy finds a way to “silence” us? To “shut us down” in response to fear. To “shame” us. To “disqualify” us. To “muzzle” us… To shut… Read More 7.30.2020 – It’s All About “The Voice”

Did you know that “criticism” is the same as “condemnation”? The definition of “criticism” is, “the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes.” “disapproval, fault-finding, denunciation, condemnation” Perhaps we’re learning to hold our tongue when it comes to criticizing others… …but what about that “inner critic”?
