So much to do and so little time.  How am I going to get everything done when I’m worn out at the beginning of my day?  I can often relate to Martha who threw up her hands in exasperation at the Lord and said, “Dost thou not care?”  I’m exhausting myself trying to be all I can be in the Lord’s army, so to speak.   I can hear the voices of many shaking their heads and saying,”Don’t do it in your own strength.  Be...

[Jesus] went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him,  And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,  And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance (Luke 8:1-3).  [As Jesus was being led to Gologotha] there followed him...

“Remember not to do it in your strength.  Do it in God’s strength.”  What does that mean? How does one categorize what kind of strength I’m exerting in any given circumstance? Is it a matter of focus?  A matter of attitude?  Priorities?  Do I get more strength from God if I think about Him and pray more often?  Is there some sort of extra Grace or Strength imparted to me if I DO the correct actions. Well, yes…and no. ...

I think if I hear these phrases again I’ll spit! It’s a Relationship, not a Religion. Christianity doesn’t change a person, Jesus does. Jesus is my Savior, not my religion. Religion sets rules.  Jesus sets free. God has no religion. When I married my husband, I didn’t say “We have love, not a marriage.”  The fact is, there are rules within our marriage that we follow to maintain our good relationship.  There are certain...
