#iRevAdvent: Day 5

“…who seated herself at the Lord’s feet.” Luke 10:39 I love all versions of Scripture. Nothing thrills me more than to take one passage and compare it across multiple spectrums of translations. But my FAVORITE always trends towards the Amplified Bible. There is something so exhaustive in nature about this version. With a “double-clicking”, if … Continue reading

#iRevAdvent: Day 4

“And she had a sister named Mary…” Luke 10:39a Well I could just leave this verse right here. I have a feeling these words have potential to evoke a lot of emotion. “And she had a sister,” are turning point words in this narrative. Jesus came through the village, Martha saw Jesus, she invited Him … Continue reading

#iRevAdvent: Day 3

“…and a woman named Martha received and welcomed Him into her house.” Luke 10:38b AMP I just need to say this for the record. Martha is awesome. She gets a bad rap sometimes, but let’s be honest. If it wasn’t for these words in Luke 10:38, we wouldn’t be having this particular Advent series, would … Continue reading

#iRevAdvent: Day 2

“And while they were on their way, it occurred that Jesus entered a certain village…” Luke 10:38 Jesus and His disciples were ultimately on a journey to Jerueselum.

Sweet Soul Words: “I Build Others Up”

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. ¬†Ephesians 4:29 This month we have focused on sweet honey comb words that come out of our mouths. Words have great power to heal, … Continue reading

Sweet Soul Words: “I am slow to anger.”

I grabbed my phone around 4am, curious of the time and honestly the weather. I couldn’t sleep so I lay there thinking, I want coffee…And will my morning jog need a raincheck? I noticed a couple of texts had come through late last night, so with squinting-no-glasses vision, I took a jab reading which of … Continue reading

Sweet Soul Words: “I Am A Prayerful Mama”

True story. Yesterday a dear friend sent me a text…. sharing Scripture prayers over her sweet son for his first day of school. She reminded me that years ago we did this together, right here on this blog, we prayed over our children for the start of school….one passage at at time. Well, Lord have … Continue reading

Sweet Soul Words: “I am consumed by God”

Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:28-29 I made a connection yesterday. I thought about how when I am hurting, angry, lonely, discouraged, bored, etc…. I am … Continue reading
