My Experience of Receiving the Holy Spirit

I know that the topic of receiving the Holy Spirit is one of contention among Christians, and I understand why. I don’t think we have to experience the same things, and to judge each other according to our experiences with the Holy Spirit leads to a lot of unnecessary accusations. I want to write moreContinue reading “My Experience of Receiving the Holy Spirit”

The Hour of Temptation

What happens when you expose someone who is as a “white-washed tomb filled with dead man’s bones?” Sometimes they might rage at you in attempts to scare you off so that you will back down. Sometimes they polish their tomb so that it is as white and bright as possible, so that they can continueContinue reading “The Hour of Temptation”

Confessions of a Wicked and Slothful Servant

I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior when I was nine years old, if I remember correctly. I base this timing off the bible that I was given soon afterward, which was dated in December of 1996. Although I’m fuzzy on some details, because I was just a kid and did not pay attentionContinue reading “Confessions of a Wicked and Slothful Servant”

Keeping My Word

I’ve been reposting some of the old content from my previous website, and one of the things I used to do was write impromptu posts that discussed things I was dealing with at the time in my Christian walk. I haven’t done that here, and maybe I should. In Tuesday’s article, I wondered about discussingContinue reading “Keeping My Word”

Why I Believe in Jesus: He is the Physician

It can feel awkward talking or writing about the things Jesus has done for you. On one hand, I want to talk about who I was and the changes He made in me so that He is honored and so that others might be encouraged. However, I also understand that doing so can be offContinue reading “Why I Believe in Jesus: He is the Physician”

Terrible Mothers: Sabotaged Education

Fathers are of fundamental importance, but as a mother, I think a lot about the importance of good mothering. My relationship with my own mother has been strained—and that is putting it lightly. Due to lack of proper example and a slew of mental/emotional problems I carried, I did not know how to be aContinue reading “Terrible Mothers: Sabotaged Education”

Why I Believe in Jesus—He is the Good Shepherd

I wrote previously about the night I called out to Jesus and the effect that had on my life, but I want to share more about where I was before that night. I got “saved” and was baptized in 1996 when I was 9 years old. My mother gave me a King James bible, andContinue reading “Why I Believe in Jesus—He is the Good Shepherd”

Why I Believe in Jesus—He is Truth

In my last testimony article, I wrote about the point in time when Jesus began to take over my life in a meaningful way. I prayed and He answered in a way that I did not expect. One of the main reasons why I prayed to Jesus that night was because I needed answers. IContinue reading “Why I Believe in Jesus—He is Truth”

Why I Believe in Jesus—When I Called, He Answered

Like many Christians, I was raised to believe in the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus. However, being raised in the faith within a largely Christian society is not why I believe in Jesus. There are several reasons why I believe. One of the most substantial reasons is that He answered when IContinue reading “Why I Believe in Jesus—When I Called, He Answered”

Submitting My Understanding to the Judgment of My Fellow Servants

The gospel is simple enough that a child can understand. I love that about the gospel. Yet, I cannot help but see things in a broader context when considering present-day Christianity in the United States. I have a lot of contradictory ideas in my mind at the same time and condensing it all into aContinue reading “Submitting My Understanding to the Judgment of My Fellow Servants”
