Church hurt, People hurt and Offense

Grace, Uncategorized
How many people can relate to this statement? "I'm not going back to church." or "Only hypocrites in church." Many people have in the past or are currently experiencing church hurt. In the world right now, there are people speaking of it everywhere. Twitter even had a hashtag trending on #Churchhurt. There are celebrities openly discussing this topic. Offense Everyone, at one point or another, deal with offense, because it happens daily.  It comes from our spouses, friends, co-workers, children, Pastors, church members, people at the stores we shop at, family members etc. We can't hide from it, and can only control our reaction and response to it.

How will you make it?

Uncategorized
We all have goals right? Well you should have goals both naturally and spiritually. Goals for your education, career, family, social life, ministry, etc. Goals are exciting. Short term and long term. The process of writing down possibilities - brainstorming on what could be, using your imagination to see beyond what is happening at the present time. Goals. How do you get from here to there? How will you make it? Physical Therapy I was so inspired in Physical Therapy this past Friday. There was a quickening in my spirit. I was laying on my heating pad after my session and asked my therapist to grab my phone because I needed to write. The processes that I was going through to achieve my goals in physical therapy made me think…

The New Jesus

Uncategorized
The New Jesus The new Jesus versus the Jesus of the Bible. The Way Many don't believe that Jesus is the only way.  I believe He is the way. The only way. There is a new Jesus being preached and talked about in the world and this is a cry of alarm. This is a warning to Christians to beware. Make sure you are following the Jesus of the bible. Even Paul admonished the Galatians and Christians at Corinth for turning away to a new gospel - a new Jesus.  {Photo by Lori M. Sousa on Unsplash} This isn't new to 2018. It was even going on in AD 27 when Jesus was teaching and preaching. When Jesus came He was not readily accepted by the religious leaders in His day. Many of the…

It’s just hair! Or is it?

Uncategorized
Deeper Meaning I premise this by saying, that to a spiritual person, all things are spiritual. A spiritual person doesn't just see a natural thing as natural, they look deeper into it. A spiritual person looks at a movie or tv program and come out with a deeper meaning than the obvious. This is just an example of how I look at things, and perhaps you can relate? Your eyes are opened on a different level. I am not speaking of spiritistic practices, I am speaking of The Holy Spirits's guidance. He speaks in many ways. One of the ways He has been speaking to me this past month is through my hair. The Word says that the very hairs on our head are numbered. (Matthew 10:30) God knows us.…

Elevate in your walk

faith, trust god, Uncategorized
Go Higher     Don’t let your circumstances dictate when you praise. You have it all wrong if you’re only praising God when things are going well. Praise should continuously be on your mouth. (Psalm 34:1) Part of elevating in our walk with God requires us looking at Him as a present help in times of trouble. (Psalm 46:1) Even if we aren’t seeing the results we want. Knowing that He is well able is enough to make you shout, “Praise God!” [bctt tweet="True joy comes from God and it is there regardless of what is happening around you." username="AuthorTTucker"] But how can you attain it? By resting in Him. You are resting in Him when you are fully trusting Him. Fully meaning no worries. Yes it’s possible. I write…

Dear God

Dear God

faith, Grace, Identity in Christ
Dear God, I’m trying. I’m resting in you. Today, I’m reflecting over it all. I know you’ve been with me. You’ve been by my side and in front of me. Lord, sometimes I want to scream! Sometimes I want to cry. I am so strong and I hold things together but I don’t always want to. I have to. People are watching: My husband and children are watching. My family, and church members are watching. Clients and strangers are watching. You have me on display. I’m an example right? That’s what you told me. I’m an inspiration and have to show people how to walk this thing out. I'm a walking epistle. Yeah, and I’m all for that most days. Lord, I’m trying! Reflecting, as I lay here in pain.…
