  • The Truth About God (Part 2)

    Jasmine October 20, 2017

    The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). – John 10:10 (AMPC) In John 10, Jesus is speaking and in verse 10 He gives the job description of Himself and the job description of the enemy. From there we learn that the thief’s “job” or goal is…

  • The Truth About God

    And God saw that it was good (suitable, admirable) and He approved it.  – Genesis 1 (AMPC)   Here’s something to think about: in the beginning of time, all that God created was good and was only approved after He saw that it was good. That’s amazing, right? God doesn’t make mistakes—He never has and He never will. In the Christian community, we know that God is good—we say it,…

  • I Doubt It

    Jasmine October 13, 2017

  • Tug of…One

    Jasmine October 6, 2017

    I feel like sometimes I get into a tug of war with God, but I’m the only one “tugging.” What I mean is, God says, “Do not fear, don’t worry, cast your cares,” and I do well for a little while. But if I’m not seeing immediate results, somehow I find it necessary to take matters into my own hands. As if to say, “God, You tried but I’ve got…

  • Going Through “the Change”

    Jasmine October 3, 2017

    “After the storm, the sun always shines. Winter doesn’t last forever—spring is on its way! Let’s get ready for summer. Oh, hey there fall.” I’ve been one to cringe at change. Let’s be real, change isn’t always favorable—but what if change is necessary? We see change all throughout creation; there’s night and day, there are different seasons and the list goes on. All this to say; everything is subject to…
