Do you desire to have a solid, unshakeable, unwavering faith?
A Faith that feels rooted, not rickety?
A Faith that feels PERSONAL, NOT BORROWED?
A Faith YOU CAN EXPLAIN, NOT STUMBLE OVER?
If this is the kind of faith you desire as a Christian woman, you can have it.
The first place to start is the Bible.
When you commit to reading and studying God's Word regularly, not just as an exercise for the sake of knowledge, but as a way to grow closer to the heart of God, it will be a blessing to you that increases, sharpens and roots your faith.
"Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him."
- Proverbs 30:5, ESV
I don't know what your story is.
I don't know what difficult seasons you've walked in.
I don't know what storm you're facing today.
I don't know what you've celebrated or what you've grieved.
Jesus wants to have a personal relationship with you - no matter who you are or what you've done.
You don't have to come to Jesus with your life together. He is the one who cleanses you.
Jesus is the only way to heaven, where you will eternally enjoy God.
God is the Maker of Heaven and Earth and YOU!
He made you, He sees you, He knows you and He loves you.
You have free will to choose to put your faith in Jesus, or not.
And if you do, the moment you put your faith in Christ, His Holy Spirit dwells within you (1 Corinthians 12:13) and you are made new (2 Corinthians 5:17).
I've always believed in God, but I haven't always known God. In my early 30s, I stepped inside of a nondenominational Christian church for the first time in my life and sat astonished as people took notes, wrote in their Bibles and raised their hands in worship. Having been raised Catholic and only ever attended Catholic mass, this was an entirely new experience for me.
And that's when I met Jesus. That's when I began to have a relationship with The Lord and not with a religion. One year later I chose to be baptized as an adult (having previously been baptized as an infant). It was hard for some of my family members to understand and maybe even a little hard for me at the time to express - but I believed, and still do, that baptism is an outward expression of an inward change.
I had changed. I was made new.
Since I gave my life to Christ in 2013, nothing has been the same. He has worked things into me and has worked things out of me. Little by little, I have tried to submit every aspect of my life to Him.
I am currently working on writing my first book and am in the process of applying to earn a Master's Degree in Christian Apologetics.
We live in a world that feels like it's moving away from truth at a startling pace. Like the Apostle Peter, I feel strongly the need to always be ready to give a defense of my hope that rests solely in Jesus Christ.
The topic of prayer is deep and wide. There are so many different ways you can pray and ways you can integrate prayer into your daily life. The thing I have found to be most important is that I am intentional about praying. It’s not about checking it off my list, it’s about making sure […]
It might not be surprising that I love to read, I think most writers do. But… sometimes I forget just how much I enjoy reading. Like lots of people I can go from devouring books to letting them collect dust on my shelves, distracted by life (and of course binge watching TV series). One of […]
“There is a season… and a time for every purpose under heaven.” I remember listening to the song Turn! Turn! Turn! as a young child, riding in the back of the car, my parents driving and reminiscing as the radio station played “the oldies” that were the soundtrack of their youth. What I didn’t know […]
I listen to quite a few podcasts every week. Some are great, some not so much. Just like with any media we consume, we have to be on guard to what we expose ourselves to. Remember, our hearts are easily swayed – even sometimes away from core beliefs. Finding content that pushes me closer to […]
