God's Roadmap

Now may the Lord Jesus Christ and our Father God, who loved us and in his wonderful grace gave us eternal comfort and a beautiful hope that cannot fail, encourage your hearts and inspire you with strength to always do and speak what is good and beautiful in his eyes (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 TPT).

Conquering Post-Abortion Stress Syndrome

 




by Barbara Latta

This month marks the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

At lot of attention will be focused on abortion and the results. Statistics will be broadcast of how many babies have died due to this Supreme Court ruling.

Yes, the babies are the victims.

But so are the parents. While many will say they are fine, the truth is post-abortion stress syndrome lies deep within the soul.

When Kindness Counts




This week's post is written by Miya Hunter-Willis. Miya and I met through the Flourish Writers Community. We can learn a lot about how far kindness can go and what an example we can be as Titus 2 women to anyone we meet through this touching story she shares. 

Roman philosopher Lucius Anneas Seneca once said, “Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.”  Well, my journey toward being kinder started with a dog.  That’s right, a dog! One day, a bristly-haired terrier found her way to my yard, tempted by the scent of white-tailed deer and cottontails.  Moments later, my doorbell rang.

Start the Year the Best Way - Know You Matter to God

 


by Barbara Latta

Do you ever feel as if you are simply a number in the mass population of this world? With over 7 billion people occupying this planet, it’s easy to feel insignificant. We may struggle with what purpose we have or what can we as one person do to make any difference.

We may have read John 3:16 over and over and know that God loved the world so much He gave us Jesus. But we may struggle with how much we matter to Him as individuals.

 by Barbara Latta

The Bible tells us wise men from the east came to worship the Christ Child with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. While Herod was searching for the the young King of the Jews to murder Him, Persian men from a non-Jewish background came to bow before the young Jesus in worship.

A heavenly Christmas card

by Barbara Latta

The card industry thrives on holidays and Christmas is one of the busiest for sales. From fancy to plain, glittered, glitzy, colorful, and extravagant, Christmas cards are available in any shape or form. In our technological world, some prefer to send e-cards and avoid the postage or paper usage.

The older I get, the more I’m learning to appreciate living in the moment and soaking things in instead of always having my phone or camera at the ready to snap pictures or record what’s happening. It’s taken me a long time to get to this point, but I think it’s often a good place to be.

Maybe that’s why one verse tucked into Luke’s version of what we know as the Christmas story is especially resonating with me this year:

Love - The Gift That Keeps on Giving

 

Love the gift that keeps on giving

by Barbara Latta

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life (John 3:16 NKJV).

John 3:16 is probably the most familiar verse in the Bible. It is printed on cards, cups, plaques, banners, hats, and shirts. This scripture shows us God’s heart and is the gift that keeps on giving.

The danger of familiarity is that the words can lose their meaning.

Nicodemus, a member of the Sanhedrin, but one who sought the truth, had a difficult time understanding what Jesus told him. He viewed the words from a physical, human perspective. But God’s words are always spirit and truth.

What does John 3:16 really mean?
