With the issue of the Covid-19 Pandemic going on, the story of Moses and the 12 spies in Numbers 13 and 14 keeps coming to my mind. The Israelites were being brought from Egypt to the Promise Land. Here they were. Pretty much at the door of Canaan, ready to go in. Moses picked 12 scouts, one from eachContinue reading “Whose Report Will You Believe?”

Hope…Desire or Trust? I’m
“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.”Romans 15:13 NLT I found a couple of definitions for the word HOPE. 1. A desire for a certain thing toContinue reading “Hope…Desire or Trust? I’m”
My Focus Today
While the world has changed around us as we have known it, and I know I will do my part to help society, I will be the most useful if my mind is grounded in the truth, peace, and hope found in God’s Word. Today I’m focusing on these truths… “I can do all thingsContinue reading “My Focus Today”
Is The Coronavirus Bigger Than Our God?
Amazingly joyful but disillusioned. That may be how many people would have described my grandfather. It seemed that no matter what kind of chaos, tragedy, or negative situation would happen in his life, He would somehow respond to it singing a line from a hymn. NEWS – “Grandpa, Grandma has cancer.” Grandpa’s Hymn Reaction – “Whatever my lot,Continue reading “Is The Coronavirus Bigger Than Our God?”
In the Face of Fear
False Evidence Appearing Real Paralyzing. Regret inducing. Dream stealing. Success squashing. Relationship destroying. Finance draining. Time wasting. Health robbing. Sleep depriving. Mind games playing. Trust slaying. Growth inhibiting. Life killing. FEAR. I wish I could say that I have always walked bold, courageous and fearless. However, there are a number of situations that have caught me by surprise and planted a seed of fear. In college, I visited aContinue reading “In the Face of Fear”
Running From Nineveh
My middle initial is “J”…which during today’s post, will stand for and be relatable to the female version of Jonah (yes, the famous Jonah and the whale guy). I guess for more reasons than one. Not only can I relate to running away from a calling, I also have been good at whining, complaining, and other characteristicsContinue reading “Running From Nineveh”
Who Do You Think You Are?
Last month I was asked to speak at a meeting that was being simulcast around the world. I was honored to have been asked as I am passionate about educating people about human trafficking and I actually, really enjoy public speaking. In preparation for the meeting, the organizer called a joint phone session with all those thatContinue reading “Who Do You Think You Are?”
It’s Not About Me
In one of my Bible groups, we just finished the book of Esther. I love that book. Disney most definitely needs to make it into a movie. While there is no mention of God in the book of Esther, it is very evident that both Esther and Mordecai are living out their faith. Mordecai isContinue reading “It’s Not About Me”
My First Blog Post
What you focus on the longest is what becomes the strongest. — Pastor John Gray “You should write books to encourage women.” “Have you ever considered publishing the Bible studies that you have written?” Those are just some the comments that have been made to me in the last number of years. With those andContinue reading “My First Blog Post”
This is me…Bonnie.
“Oh that my life would consistently reflect His Word.” – Psalm 119:5 More than anything, I want to be obedient to what God has called me to be. Nothing less. Not shrinking back. Living for a purpose and calling that is much higher than myself. I am a Canadian born mom living in Texas. OurContinue reading “This is me…Bonnie.”
