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 [...]

The power of your story

One day, there is going to be an adulterous woman that God places in my life. A woman that has hurt and betrayed everyone she knows. A woman filled with lies and manipulation and a deep need to feel like she's in control. A woman who puts on the air of love toward others, but [...]
