Freedom

I am sitting here without the benefit of my extra eyes writing about freedom. Just because the topic popped into my head.

What is freedom? How do we know when we are truly free?

Some say that freedom is when you reach a certain age. Then, they say, you can do whatever you want to do. But is that true? Is there ever really a time in your life when you can do whatever you want? I haven’t found that time so far in my life. When you are a child, you do what the parent wants. When you are an adult, you do what the employer wants, or if you own your own business, you do what the business needs. When you are a parent, you do what the child needs (isn’t that something? I switched from wants to needs). It is the truth.

When you are not saved, you do what the devil wants. And the killing part is you think you’re free. Until you find out that you can’t just stop. Until you discover that you just can’t help it. That’s when you realize you are not free at all.

But once you come to …
I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. Romans 1:8

Just a Thought

Sometimes I wonder who has time to read the thousands of blog posts that are made every day. I ask myself, "Who is going to read this stuff?" every time I get ready to write.

And then I realize I may never know. I may never know who is reading this blog, looking for insight and encouragement. I may never know who saw a video posted on this blog that helped them make it a little further down the road. I may never know who was changed by something they read. I may never know who was reminded that despite difficulties, all is not lost. Life goes on, and I may never know who I have touched.

At least not on this side of eternity. There are so many things that are simply unknown to us. So instead of thinking that what we do makes no difference, I encourage you to think that what you do may make all the difference in the world to someone you may never meet on this side of eternity.

One thing is sure: on the other side of eternity, you will know some things you cannot possi…

Beware of Internet Scams

If you're like me, you conduct more and more of your business via the Internet. From simple information searches to that all-important hunt for employment, the Internet has become a way of life. Unfortunately, there are some individuals who will take advantage of others using this global communications tool. I am sharing the article below to raise awareness of common Internet schemes. Source information for the article is at the very end. Be safe when surfing!

Common Internet Scams - An Overview

Email and the Internet is a wonderful resource that has revolutionized the way humans communicate and access information. Unfortunately, it has also proven to be a fertile medium for the unscrupulous and the morally challenged. Scammers regularly use email in attempts to steal money or personal information from unsuspecting victims. Those inexperienced in the ways of the Internet are especially vulnerable to these scammers.

The good news is that it is not difficult to learn how to recognise …

I Want My Inheritance!

I just finished my third installment of the Principles of the Kingdom Series on the Eternal Word Broadcast. I am teaching about the kingdom of God, and right now I am teaching about who will receive. More specifically, I was teaching about hindrances to the kingdom.

We all know that some things that happen in our lives make it difficult to serve God the way we want to. Life's circumstances sway us from our path and purpose. But if we stop, repent, and turn around, we can be put back on the path that God has chosen for us.

In the word of God, we have precious reminders that God desires greatness for us. The scriptures the Holy Ghost gave me for tonight offer great encouragement.

"Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our Lord." 1 Corinthians 6:11

That's the good news of the passage, now here's the bad news: "Or do you not know that the unrighteous…

Just wanted to share this with you!

Muslim Demographics

This is something that a pastor friend of mine in Bulgaria sent to me. I have not done in-depth demographic research, but based on what I do know, it rings true.

Is Your City Sin City?

As I write this, I am sitting in a great hotel room in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. When I was getting ready to come here, I told one of the pastors at my church that I was going to Sin City. He responded by asking, "What city is that?" His next comment was even more striking. He stated that every city is sin city nowadays.

I have been thinking about that and it is so true. It is hard to differentiate one place from another in the universal sense of sinfulness. However, we have to acknowledge that each area has its own particular wickedness that seems to prevail. For instance, here in Las Vegas, gambling is abundant. I have observed scores of people sitting motionless in front of machines that are sucking up their finances. There is a certain excitement in the bells and whistles, to be sure. I have seen high stakes tables where people wager more money than I make in a month on the draw of some cards or the toss of some dice. I have taken a look at the people and you…

Stay Connected

It's funny, but I just lost what I felt was a very brilliant post that I just added to another one of my blogs. What happened was I lost my internet connection. The funny thing about it is I was writing about keeping in touch with God through prayer.

Now I am over here, writing about staying connected. It is a slightly different thought, but the theme of connectedness lingers on.

As believers in Jesus Christ, we must make every effort to stay connected to Him. It is sometimes hard in our state of busyness to set aside time for Him alone, but it is vital to our progress and productivity.

The Lord Jesus Christ told us in the fifteenth chapter of John that we must abide in Him. He let us know that we will be pruned if we bring forth fruit. He also let us know that if we do not bring forth fruit, we will be cut off.

Here is the powerful statement found in John 15:4, "Remain in Me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, so ne…

New on YouTube!

I am excited that I finally figured out how to put certain videos on YouTube that I wanted my visitors to have access to. This is still a work in progress, but right now you can catch glimpses of my spiritual leaders, Apostle David Pittman and Pastor Shelia Pittman, as well as my own preaching. You can go to YouTube.com and search for any of us by name or search for The Rock Ministries International, Humble, Texas. Enjoy!

Reflections of the Way We Used to Be

Funny - that little tune - I think it was Diana Ross's song - is in my mind right now. It's two o'clock in the morning, and I am writing not only in this blog, but in the draft of my upcoming book, Surviving Your Season of Shame. I just finished telling the story of my divorce from my first husband and I feel wiped out.

When I read back over the story, it seems unreal, like it happened to someone else. But in my heart, I know it happened to me. I feel it, not the same way I did when it happened, but in a real way nonetheless.

This story, which begins the third chapter of the book, is still a hard pill to swallow. It makes me wonder if I was so much different then than I am today. Is this truly a reflection of the way we used to be? Unfortunately, it is.

Thank God for the promise that there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1)! Because if I still had to carry the burdens of my past I would be knee bowed and body bent (and not in the good B…

It's Time to Repent

Image
The button above links to my show page on BlogTalkRadio. I want to encourage you to take the time to listen to my most recent broadcast, "Repent! The Kingdom of God is at Hand." God has been sharing a powerful word through many of the Christian broadcasters this week.

This week has been "Repentance Week" at www.blogtalkradio.com and I have listened to many of the broadcasts which discussed and explained our need to repent. I hope that as we celebrate the Easter season and contemplate the sacrifice of Jesus Christ we will be of a mind to repent, turn from sin, and follow after the Lord.

What time is it? It is time to get right with God. It is time to examine the Bible with fresh eyes and get a new perspective. Ritual must be replaced with relationship with God. We can no longer afford to go through the motions.

The world we live in is in turmoil. People need to know that there is an unchanging hand to hold on to in the midst of all this change. You can be th…
