Are you the wicked one? – God’s loving justice

This might be a tough one to read, but I really encourage you to think over these words and ask yourself - are you the wicked one? So often when we read about the wicked or stories in the Bible, we say "That's not me. I'm not that character/person." But if we take a step [...]

Lover like Israel – April 22, 2013

Part of the reason I love blogging is because the Lord gets to remind me of lessons He taught me years ago, that have now come full circle. I'm about to start reading Hosea with a few friends, and I'm in charge of leading the first two chapters. So I've been studying up. And in [...]
