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 Lie We Tell Ourselves

The Lie We Tell Ourselves

Grace, Uncategorized
  The Lie   Everyone lies in one way or another. Small lie, big lie, white lie, red lie ( I just threw that one in there) When speaking on lies, people say things like, "It was just a small white lie" or "It wasn't that big of a deal. You know it's true. When we say we don't lie, we are in fact lying. We can definitely be someone who keeps it real, and on the up and up for the most part. Yet even when trying to protect someone, we may tell them a different truth to not hurt their feelings.  We may lie and tell our children that there is a Santa Clause and Tooth Fairy. Innocent right? Sure, but it isn't true. We may lie when…

It’s just hair! Or is it?

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.…

Truly an interesting saying is, "I don't care what people think." I've found that to be one of the biggest understatements ever. However, people use that narrative often. I know I have. And a part of me doesn't care, yet there is another part that does. People say they don't care what someone thinks of them, but I would wager to say that they do care. Very much actually, as they should. Did you know the bible says that our reputation among men is important?   A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. Proverbs 22:1   If the Lord says it's important, then that seals it for me. In my younger days, I did and said whatever I wanted and dared anyone to come…

The Authenticity of the Writer

faith
Why I write I enjoy writing immensely. If I could just write and that was all, there would be no issue. Regrettably, that is not the case. Being obedient to the call that the Lord has placed on me is exciting and uncomfortable at the same time. Granted, I have been speaking my mind, and posting scriptures for years on my personal platform. However, using a professional platform to showcase my writing leaves me vulnerable and open in a way that I didn't feel before. Even so, this is what has been asked of me. I know that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. This is not in question. At the same time, I am being pulled to the front for all to see. As…
