I literally had a sleepless night so was up extra early this morning. Then began thinking about this. It finally fell into place for me. Think about what this means… “Mankind sees Christianity as a religion. But those who follow Christ know it’s that plus much more. That’s why those who have been “born again”…

Good news in spite of Politics!

I HAVE GOOD NEWS!  Are you tired of politics like I am? Then it might help you like it did me to remember: God knows the truth of what’s going on. And most of all, remembering our trust is in Him and not in any person or political agenda! Regrettably there is no escaping it:…

Do-ers and Be-ers…

You’re right. It’s a crazy title, isn’t it?  But did you know God has called us to be both “do-ers” and “be-ers”? Oddly enough I used to see them as being essentially the same thing—but I recently learned they are not. Part of my fixation with the word “be” began when I started thinking about…

Rocked to the core with the news?

Yesterday I noticed on social media that some Christians are expressing their dismay and surprise, evidently over the shocking number of well know public personalities who have recently announced they’ve decided to “leave the Faith”. Their names aren’t important, but the reason we could be seeing this happen sure is! The full-of-dismay question that seems…

Feeling haunted by your past?

Are you haunted by past failures?  You’re not alone; I’ve been there. I know how it feels to be tied up in knots about it too. But I have good news! God wants us all to know that, “It’s true we can’t change the past. HOWEVER, we CAN loosen and be free of the knots…

It, along with other writings, was passed down through my family for generations, and now to me.  And I further revealed that it is a one-of-a-kind manuscript that holds the recorded secrets of ancient prophets…

I feel awed…

Yesterday I experienced new understanding about Christ’s birth. I realized that Christmas is not so much about celebrating the birth of our Savior as much as it is celebrating the fulfillment of the prophecies of his coming and what it would mean to all mankind! Think of the odds of only eight of the “predictions”…

An Epiphany? …or a God Thing?

God’s truths or insights can sure hit at some pretty unexpected times, can’t they?!  Earlier today I just had another, which some call might call an “epiphany”.  But I call it a “God thing.” I confess.  For a long time when thinking about “Faith” and “Trust” I would keep seeing them as essentially the same thing….

The Broken Pot

Evelyn Alexander:  Contributor to “Share YOUR Story” page   |   Every time I read this story I feel encouraged for I can relate to the cracked pot and sometime need to be reminded that God can take what I see as a negative in my life and turn it around as something he can use for…

Rocked to the core…

Evelyn Alexander Contributor to “Share YOUR Story” page   |   I came to personally know and serve the Lord as a child while still in grade school.  But as an adult, even though I was a strong Christian, and a leader in my church, a combination of people’s failures and actions, and the hard circumstances of…
