The Meaning of Christmas | What are We Really Celebrating?

The Meaning of Christmas | What are We Really Celebrating?

In the midst of our family’s “western priority,” consumerism Christmas, we remind ourselves what this season- what this life- is truly about.

So in case you need some reminding in between amazon package deliveries, and preparation baking, let’s remember and wait together.

A Sermon on Spiritual Warfare | by Pastor Faith

A Sermon on Spiritual Warfare | by Pastor Faith

Today I wanted to share with you the transcript of Pastor Faith Bosmans’ sermon she gave recently. With her permission, I am so honored to share her words with you here. Spiritual warfare has been plaguing my life recently, and I am ever-voraciously learning about how to use God’s Word and my status as a redeemed by Jesus, daughter of God, Spirit-filled Christian to combat the lies of the Enemy. And I deeply yearn for you to learn, too!

The Lies the Devil Tells Me (That I bet He Tells You, Too!)

The Lies the Devil Tells Me (That I bet He Tells You, Too!)

If these lies sting when you read them, then I bet you have felt them, too. Felt them within the very deep parts of your being. Felt them, have heard them, and feel like you are powerless against them.

 I’m learning that we have to battle these lies with God’s Truth. We have to battle the Devil’s whisperings with God’s proclamations. We have to battle these thoughts with God’s thoughts. We have to know who we are in Jesus.

 

I Didn't Plant This: Ways that God Creates New Life

 I didn’t plant this:

Outside our kitchen window, bordering our white pasture, Wisconsin fence are vines. Vines upon vines of pumpkins and gourds extending among the grass and weeds.

These vines are beginning to bloom and morph into centerpieces and porch adornment. Simple, natural, beautiful, home-grown fall decor.

But, I didn’t plant these.
