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).

The Relationship Between Man's Performance and the Toil of Sweat


by Barbara Latta

In the Bible, sweat represents works and performance.

There are only three places in scripture where sweat is mentioned. The first is when Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden. God told Adam from now on he would toil by the sweat of his brow.

 In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return. (Genesis 3:19 NKJV)

Before sin, Adam and Eve had an effortless relationship with their Creator.

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.
