How to Respond to the Infinite God of the Bible

For the past four weeks we’ve been studying the Bible to learn some of what the Infinite God has revealed to us about Himself. We discussed His identity as the Triune God, and unpacked the unique characteristics of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Today, we’ll wrap up this series with a look at His infinite qualities, and how we should respond.  Psalms 90:1-2 – Lord, through all generations, You have been our home! Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and the world, from beginning to end, You are God.  The Infinite God who Made Himself Known  How incomprehensible the infinite is to us mortals!

Getting to Know God the Spirit

We’ve been working our way through a study of the One God of the Bible. In week one we examined how He reveals Himself in the form of three unique Persons. Then we spent a week studying the Father, one studying the Son, and now we have reached the week in which we’ll examine Scripture to see what we can learn about God the Spirit.  2 Corinthians 3:17-18 – For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the LordRead More →

Getting to Know God the Son

We have embarked upon a 5-week study to know God.  We started by learning about the Trinity – three Persons united as one God. Last week we learned about God the Father: His authority, sovereignty, adoption, discipline; His role as the One to whom we pray, and His love.  This week we are going to study Scripture to learn what we can about God the Son. Friends, there is no way to contain all there is to be known of Jesus in one blog post, so this is going to be both long, and shockingly inadequate. I’ve done my best to hit the most important aspects while keeping itRead More →

Getting to Know God the Father

Last week we decided to take a little break from all the betrayal trauma stuff and spend some time studying and getting to know our God. We started this five-week study by learning about the triune nature of God: how He can be both three distinct Persons, and the One God. For the next three weeks we’ll be learning about each member of the Godhead starting today with God the Father.   There are many attributes shared by all three members of the Trinity like omniscience and omnipotence, but there are also qualities that set Father, Son, and Holy Spirit apart. So, let’s take a lookRead More →

Getting to Know God through the Trinity

Let’s take a little break from all the sexual addiction and betrayal trauma content and spend a few weeks just getting to know our God a little better. Sometimes I need to step away and focus on my Savior, don’t you? Let’s spend the next 5 weeks doing a little study on God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This week we’ll learn about the Trinity. After that we’ll take three weeks dedicating one to each Person of the Godhead. Finally, in the fifth week we’ll examine our role – what should our response be to God?  The goal of all this is simple: We want to know God!  We wantRead More →

Psalms 91 - How to Understand and Trust the Promises of God

It is imperative to a life of victory that we learn how to properly understand and then trust the promises of God. I’ve told you before about the time I found myself so buried in despair it felt like God was a liar. My circumstances seemed to contradict passages like Psalms 91. I didn’t feel like God was protecting me. It felt like the evils He promised wouldn’t touch me were actually consuming me!  What I’ve learned in the years since that time is this: I have to allow God to give me a proper understanding of His promises. I need eyes to see and ears to hear what He’s teaching me. When Scripture seems toRead More →

What does your personal Bible study look like? If you’re familiar with this blog at all, it’s no secret to you that I am completely in love with the Word of God! I have spent my life reading and studying it, falling deeper and deeper in love with its life-giving words, and with the One who gave them. My primary mission in writing is and has always been to point others to its truth in hopes that it will provide the hope and healing to others that it has brought to me and to my love. I spend a lot of time showing you whatRead More →

Psalms 19 is a wonderful passage of Scripture to inspire us to be seeking God no matter what! When we're down or broken, the heavens will declare His glory. His Word will confirm it. And His work in our lives will draw us back. May we seek to please Him all the days of our lives!

When hearts are broken, seeking God is often the last thing we want to do. The enemy is quick to use these terrible moments to convince us we “can’t” seek Him. To convince us we’re too broken, too incapacitated. It. Is. A. Lie, dear sisters.  We can choose to run or hide. We can make excuses. We can blame others. But the truth is, we’re simply hurting ourselves. The good news is, He will pursue us. He will continue to call for as long as it takes to convince us to come out of hiding and seek Him again. When we finally do, what healing there is in His gloriousRead More →

Redeemed by the Blood - 9 Verses that Celebrate Jesus

We are redeemed! Am I right? We have so much to celebrate in our home this Easter season! Sure, the past few years have been difficult. There has been a lot of pain and a lot of sadness.

He has breathed new life into places long dead.  We are believing Him to continue that work and see it through to the day when He returns and completes what He has started in us. As we headRead More →

We’ve been looking at the life of Joshua the past few weeks and learning from one of the most complex characters in the Bible.  He started out as a minor supporting character – Moses’s assistant.  During his time in that role, Joshua watched and learned.  He communed with God, and his faith grew and grew and grew.  Then Moses died, and Joshua was called to take over as the leader of Israel.  The command for his life – be strong and courageous for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.  Up to this point in the story Joshua has certainly been brave. He’s been faithful, and obedient.Read More →
