Reblogged. Awesome post by Cavelle, please visit her blog at A Christian In Bloom and show some love!

A Christian In Bloom

Have you ever had the urge to reach out to someone you don’t know but feared that if you did that person would tell you to take a hike or perhaps even think you were crazy?

How many times have you had the opportunity to be a light in someone’s life but just couldn’t bring yourself to go there?

Many times, we miss the opportunities God puts in front of us simply because we are fearful of the outcome. We claim to trust God but when he puts us to the test, we run away with our tail between our legs.

This is normal in some ways I think. We are human after all. In the age of social media there can be instant backlash for standing up for something or someone you believe in.

Especially if it goes against the flavor of the week.

Serving God is not a…

What are your demons?

Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him, and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities—Mary called Magdalene, out of whom had come seven demons, and Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others who provided for Him from their substance.

Luke 8.1-3

Mary Magdalene was delivered from seven demons. Seven.

What are your demons? Bring them to Jesus, He’s got this!

Making God Famous

Making God famous, what’s that like?

You see, God needs no introduction. Trust and believe, His creation knows who He is.

“The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.”

Psalms 19:1-3

Making God famous is not so much about God being unpopular, especially in today’s society. It is that we have the rare opportunity of getting to know this King on a personal level, and then being able to tell the world what He is like. Continue reading Making God Famous

The Principle of Replacement

For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,

Romans 8.2-3

My pastor spoke today about what he referred to as the principle of replacement: God’s righteousness replaces our sinful nature.

How I wish for God’s love to replace our hate in today’s world. Continue reading The Principle of Replacement

We all begin life as Predators

Yes, we all really do. We all begin life feeding on what mother eats, contributing to changes in mother’s body – most notably, the famous baby bump which may or may not disappear after baby is born – and, in some cases, changes in mother’s mental health. In this time of hate and chaos, if we remember nothing else, we really all do have this in common: we all begin life as predators. Continue reading We all begin life as Predators

First world problems

Today, I saw a news story about a motorcycle rider who was pronounced dead after an accident, and another about a man who died after being shot over a parking spot at Target. I wondered why Facebook did not have a “Praying” or “Prayers” reaction or something of the sort for sad news other than the “Sad” icon. No, I am obviously not as ingenious as Zuckerberg and his team of talented individuals who manage Facebook and keep it running with just about no glitches – but I think there ought to be a more appropriate reaction than “Like” or “Sad” for such sad news on Facebook.

Jesus in the Workplace

Before I go on, I would like to give a quick shout to all my readers, followers, and subscribers by email. You all are awesome.

My guess is that many readers will be offended by my chosen title on first glance. While I have not put this up to offend anyone, I recognize and accept that I inevitably will. Then again, this is my blog, a sort of personal space.

And now, speaking of personal space, I must mention that I have a bit of a problem. Continue reading Jesus in the Workplace
