Jesus Saves

A Story of Redemption

A Story of Redemption I recently discovered this poem I had written almost 5 years ago. It was an encouraging reminder to me of the growth and healing God has brought into my life. I had only written up to “I’ll look back someday and say,” but I can say now, my life is a testimony to His grace and redemption. Jesus saves! I was scared to deathCould almost taste your breathYour eyes and hands begging for meInnocent and naive I…

That Grace May Abound - Does Grace Allow us to Sin?

Grace | The Secret to Finding Freedom in Christ?

Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of His wonderful grace?  Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it?Romans 6:1-2 NLT Does grace allow us to sin? I’m a person who heavily advocates grace. God is gracious to us and so we must extend grace to others. But what does God’s grace really look like?  Paul says “…Should we keep sinning so that…

One night, driving my friend home on a country back road, I came around a bend in the road at 60mph and 3 deer were standing in the middle…

You Call Me Out Upon the Waters

Is this what it feels like to trust… overwhelming and a little… no, a lot like you’re drowning? I can relate to Peter, when Jesus was walking on the water and Peter jumped out of the boat to meet Him. Peter was so zealous and eager to follow Jesus but along the way he would quickly lose faith.
