Stop Waffling!

January 22, 2018 Grow (discipleship)

Have you been going around and around over something, but can’t make a decision?  Wavering, undecided? For how long? James writes… the doubting person is “like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable […]


That Barking Dog!

January 16, 2018 Grow (discipleship)

  Have you ever had a noise that just continually annoys, irritates and frustrates you?  We live in a cul-de-sac that has been really quiet… until about 2 years ago… when we got some new next door neighbors. Things change! People change. Things and people may irritate and annoy you. What do YOU do about […]


Let God RULE!

January 12, 2018 Grow (discipleship)

  For God to rule, you must understand His Principle – His rules. He desires that His Principles govern your conduct and behavior.  As a Christian, we are to follow His directions, instructions, requirements, and Standard.  They are His PRESCRIBED conduct. A Ruler has ultimate power and authority over your life. He presides over, leads, […]


Are you Aligned with God?

January 11, 2018 Grow (discipleship)

When I was growing up, we went to church every Sunday.  I heard a lot of sermons, but I never opened the Bible and read it for myself.  I wasn’t even saved until way later. Church was a ritual – just something we did on Sunday morning. I am thankful for this tradition, but it […]


Oops! Your Baggage is Showing!

January 10, 2018 Grow (discipleship)

  Recently, I was sharing with one of my best friends something my husband did that irritated me. (On his behalf, he was reacting to something I said).  My friend said to me… “I guess your baggage is showing.”  Oops!  I had to take a second look AT MYSELF (and I also thought it would […]


Going to Meet the King!

January 9, 2018 Grow (discipleship)

What would you do if you were invited to see the king…an earthly king?  I’ve never met, nor been invited to meet, an earthly king… but I wouldn’t know what to do if I were.  I was thinking about “Are you ready to meet the King? King Jesus?” Out of curiosity, I googled it. I […]


Are you in OVER YOUR HEAD?

January 5, 2018 Grow (discipleship)

  You’ve heard that saying “I think I’m in over my head” meaning you are in too deep, you’ve gone too far. Maybe you feel stuck. Maybe you are overwhelmed. Maybe your hope is gone. You feel like you can’t get out, you can’t change things. You didn’t get there by accident. You made choices. It […]


Cutting the “Schnurs”

January 4, 2018 Grow (discipleship)

Do you know what a “schnur” is?  It’s a German word for that little string hanging off your clothes.  I saw “schnur” on the edges of my curtains this morning. Then I went in the bathroom and saw some “schnurs” on the towel that was hanging up. Strange. I never noticed them before, and now […]



January 3, 2018 Grow (discipleship)

  I want to see revival!  Unfortunately, revival sometimes has a negative connotation. When you say “revival,” most people probably think of the old time tent revivals. Revival is about evangelism and getting people saved, but it also has to do with reviving your life as a Christian. Have you pledged your devotion to God […]



January 2, 2018 Grow (discipleship)

I’m pushing the RESET button at the beginning of this year. I’ve had time to reflect on the things that went well last year and the things I’d like to see change.  I’m revisiting the things that are important to me (my values) and arranging my priorities.   My first order of business was to […]
